This New Moon is bringing action and ingenuity to how we are deciding we want to build our solid foundations. The lovers (Mars & Venus) are still in Gemini (Venus) and Aquarius (Mars) bringing a meeting of the minds. This is bringing mental clarity as we are receiving our 20/20 vision. We are able to clearly see the big picture (our goal, our endgame, our dream, our best life!), while focusing on the details needed to attain our vision. Aquarius is helping us plan, strategize, and see everything through to fruition, and Gemini is researching, questioning, and making sure we are making all the most informed choices. Our dynamic duo and mental clarity enhancing our vision will ensure success!
While our heads and our hearts are aligning Aries is bringing a catapulting energy propelling is forward on our path. We are no longer asking for what we want, we are moving toward what we want. Our energy has shifted and we see the light at the end of the tunnel. As it grows, we become closer to stepping through the threshold separating us from our destined life. We are thinking and communicating with love and passion as the fire billows from our heart.
The sun and moon sit together in Taurus as we are illuminated to the process of tactile work, fun, and play. We are using our senses as they heighten our experience. The sun is showing us how utterly beautiful the world we exist in is, and we are allowing our creativity to soar!
Our subconscious mind (the moon) and conscious mind (the sun) are reminding us of all the good times we had and fun games we would play as kids. While with family and friends we are introducing our childhood pastimes with our current loved ones. Whether you enjoyed baking cookies with your grandmother or playing sports with your friends, we are using our senses, we are enjoying what it means to be human, and we are appreciating our experiences.
Based on Numerology we have a blessed day in our midst (4/22/2020) with another 4/4/4 this year. We are focused on building our solid foundations while also receiving help from others to co-create our reality. This help can be from friends, family, our highest selves, angels, ancestors, Mother Nature, and evening the universe!
22 is the master builder and gives us the tools we need to create stability, security, safety, and structure in our lives. 22 helps us toward fulfilling our divine life purpose. 2020 was mentioned earlier as 20/20 and another solid 4.
The reduction to 3 (4+4+4=12, 1+2=3) speaks of growth, expansion, being social, communication, on top of the holy trinity, mind body spirit, the 3 Dantians, among other symbolism. This is a powerful number and brings fortune.
We are moving forward toward fulfilling our dreams. We have all the tools we need and vision to clearly see our goal and how to get there. We are also receiving help from others as we remain aligned. Our foundation, our creativity, our action, All we need now is to continue taking one purposeful step at a time toward achieving what we have always wanted – sustainable happiness.
Once we are able to balance our inner worlds we will be able to see the balance occur throughout our outer worlds. This massive shift from 3D to 5D is occurring to all of us as a collective. This is creating chaos as the two try to balance and exist on the same plane while our vibrational frequencies upgrade. Libra is here to help balance the scales within each of the spheres of our lives.
Family, friends, career, romance, relationships, finances, health, well-being, spirituality, creative endeavors, learning, each of these take up time and space in our lives. To find a healthy balance is to know what works best for you. Some people need to make a concrete plan with steps, alternative routes, and achievable goals, while others dream big and flow through their day. Whichever method works for you, utilize it at this time.
It is important to trust our intuition and know when to act, receive, dream, create, plan, and relax. Moving along with the energies and trusting what you are feeling to do will lead to greater progress than fighting the current. This is how we find balance. Focusing on one sphere at a time, and remembering to take breaks and go easy on ourselves.
Our divine feminine planet, Venus, rests in Gemini as our subconscious downloads the extraordinary amount of 5D information: learning, researching, studying, and multi-tasking, while our divine masculine planet, Mars, sits in Aquarius bringing goal setting, detail-oriented, step-by-step, cause and effect planning as our form of taking action. We are experiencing a meeting of the minds.
What a beautiful combination this is going to be as divine thought turns into divine action. Right now we are in the middle of the process as we balance what we are dreaming and how we are going about doing and manifesting it all into our physical realm. We are taking everything we have learned and creating piles of what we want and what we do not want moving forward. From there, we are taking the pile of what we want and creating a plan about how to achieve exactly that – our dreams and goals!
Enjoy this process and know your plans are you taking action! We are at the BEGINNING of our fool’s journey, of our soul’s path, of our divine purpose. Keep visualizing what you want your life to look like, keep feeling how satisfying it is, and make the plans before taking the next steps.
Our journey awaits. All we have to do is be present.
The New Moon on May 25, 2017 at 1:45pm PST will be in the air sign of Gemini. Gemini is represented by a set of twins. The twins are often able to see different perspectives to every situation and have many varying interests. Because of this, Gemini is an indecisive sign and often stretches themselves very thin. You are more likely to find Gemini doing research until they know every detail about all of their options so they can make the most informed decision possible. This fits their air nature of intelligence and wit. Air signs are also independent, social, and charming. Gemini are also mutable signs, which prepare for seasonal transitions. Mutable signs are highly adaptable, problem solvers, who are detail oriented and resourceful. We are about to enter Summer, and Gemini is helping us transition from brand new, blossoming ideas to finding a steady footing and making concrete plans to reach our goals. Gemini is also ruled by the planet Mercury, which controls our communication and thought processes.
During this New Moon, our higher selves are trying to aid us in our forms of communication by teaching us to be soft and gentle with others. Even if we have good intentions, our body language and tone of voice do not always reflect the message we are trying to convey. This is often a roadblock Gemini face as they can be received as abrupt, blunt, and sometimes cold. We are being asked to be more open and accepting of others and embrace their differences, which is not difficult for most Gemini. However, we want them to FEEL welcome and accepted so it is important that we are aware of all forms of communication – not just what we say, but how we say it, what our body language is saying, and listening with sincerity.
Communication and self-expression are controlled internally by our throat chakra, Vishuddha. It is important that this chakra remains balanced during this time so we can speak our truth without feeling shame or guilt by expressing ourselves. There are many techniques to balance this chakra, ensuring that it is performing at its optimum level. Vishuddha is associated with the color blue, the element of sound, the Bij Mantra Ham, the key note G, the Dhyana Mudra, and yoga poses such as Halasana (plow pose) and Matsyasana (fish pose).
I personally meditate on the color blue as I repeat the mantra “Ham” while listening to singing bowls in the note of G with my hands in the Dhyana Mudra. I will follow my meditation with some Qigong exercises and yoga poses. I often have Sage, Rosemary, or Cedar wood burning throughout this process, and grid myself in blue crystals such as Lapis Lazuli, Blue Lace Agate, Blue Kyanite, and Blue Calcite. Once completed, throughout the day I find myself not only thinking before I speak using a gentle kindness, but I also notice that I LISTEN with a fine tuned, objective ear.
We often forget that listening is half of the communication process. Our higher selves are asking us to listen fully to what the others are saying non judgmentally with an open heart to ensure the most sincere and insightful responses. This is extremely important for the New Moon since everyone is going to want to be speaking their peace. Instead of thinking about what you are going to say next, fully process what you are hearing. Wouldn’t you want the same courtesy? Effective communication is extremely important in building all types of relationships whether family, friends, romantic partners, business associates, acquaintances, or even strangers in passing.
Note: The Dhyana Mudra is when we cross our fingers on the inside of our hands with palms face up and thumbs gently touching.
The planetary aspects on the night of the New Moon are going to have a major impact on our relationships with others. The planet we will be focusing on is Venus. Venus will be in the fiery sign of Aries allowing us to be more outgoing, charming, witty, and flirtatious. When Gemini is in a social mood theses characteristics tend to present themselves, and with this placement they will all be enhanced. You will find yourself taking initiative in social circles, business endeavors, and even in romantic encounters whether these qualities resonate with your personality or not. Be prepared to surprise yourself. Venus is sextile Mars bringing a lot of passion into each encounter. People will see the fire and intensity behind our words and body language.
There is going to be a huge back and forth between our ego and spirit as Venus trines Saturn and opposes Jupiter. We are going to have a tendency to want to show off in a pretentious and almost superficial manner to our cohorts, peers, and romantic prospects, while also remaining humble and sincere in partnerships. More confusion will be brought to the table as Venus is in conjunct with Uranus causing us to yearn for romantic experiences, yet refuse the overly sensual commitment to just one person. This aspect will, however, allow us to be more accepting of all people. Finally, Venus will square Pluto bringing forth many intense feelings of passionate love.
The passion mentioned with Pluto is different from that of Mars. Mars is enhancing our inner passion for the aspects of life that inspire us and call to our soul. Pluto’s passion is sexual, sensual, and intense on a physical, ego based level. Once we transcend the ego we are able to move beyond passion into the realm of unconditional love that is more intense than any passion ever experienced because it is on a soul level.
Our higher selves want us to enjoy the pleasures of the physical realm because it is a part of the human experience, however, we are being warned not to allow our souls to be consumed by this physical nature. It is requested that we remain humble, and experience all of these passions with unconditional love. This does not mean we need to attach ourselves to one person if we are single. A part of unconditional love is the ability to let go and understand that nothing and no one truly belongs to us in the physical world. So, we must live these passions and let go with a gentle, respectful love.
I encourage anyone performing any ceremonies this Thursday to have Blue Lace Agate present. Blue Lace Agate is a stone of truth. It not only allows us to speak our truth, but also encourages the act of listening with sincerity. Blue Lace Agate resonates with the throat chakra, and helps remove any blockages. There are many stones and crystals that promote communication, however, I believe Blue Lace Agate is most effective for this New Moon because it promotes soft and gentle forms of speech. This stone is very calming and gives the wearer a sense of peace and serenity.
I enjoy the presence of candles and incense during my ceremonies to enhance my intention. I encourage blue (preferably light blue), white, and lavender colored candles to facilitate the connection between your higher self and communication center. If the candles are reiki infused, I suggest the throat, third eye, and crown chakra candles, or spirit, harmony, peace, positive energy, and love votives. My incense recommendations would be Rosemary and Cedar wood (similar to my meditation) as they resonate with the throat chakra.
Since the New Moon is all about manifestation, I would suggest utilizing this ceremony to manifest what you want within yourself. How do you want to effectively communicate? What do you want to work on in social interactions? Are you having a hard time finding the right words to say? Do you think you are an effective listener? How do you want others to receive your words? Do you care how others perceive you? What do you want out of your various relationships? How will you make those goals a reality?
Take your time to really think everything through (as a Gemini would), and write it all down. Keep this list somewhere you will see it every day to remind yourself of the changes you want to make in yourself and your relationships. As you notice these manifestations occurring in reality, allow yourself to bask in your accomplishments. If you notice you fall short some days, forgive yourself because it is okay and we are all human. Learn from your mistake, and try to do better next time by remaining mindful. I hope you all received this New Moon report well. Happy manifesting Waking Beauties!
