This morning, at 10:38 am PST (1:38 pm EST), we have our New Moon in Gemini shifting from Dark Moon to New Moon and later to Crescent Moon. My picture above is meant to describe the world at large today as there is so much going on in the skies and here on Mother Earth herself. I find that I am reeling in all of this energy and looking for solid ground to stand on; yet, at the same time feeling grounded! This duality change and stillness is felt deep and has me shifting in ways I never have before. Maybe some of you can relate.
And so as we move into our sweet New Moon in Gemini, I find that I am looking to undergo a reset by checking in with my thoughts and my body. Something that is especially wonderful to do under this New Moon in Gemini.
Gemini falls under the element of air, the ruling planet of Mercury and rules the upper body, arms, hands, shoulders, nervous system, airway AND lungs. Interesting, very interesting.
Air is the element that connects all other elements (fire, water, earth, ether). It is circular in motion; has the power to shift, change, and shape your inner and outer landscape; it is the wind beneath your wings; the power of your heart to direct you into action. We breathe in, we breathe out, as naturally as the air moves around us.
Gemini is about communication and our thoughts and I believe that our thoughts create the reality of the world around us. It is about moving through change and finding the stillness.
This is the time to connect with air.
We also have the energy of Venus beginning her retrograde in Gemini. She has left the night sky and will be missed until she returns again on June 3rd. When she reappears, she will light our mornings with her beautiful presence. I cannot wait. I want to move with her over these next few weeks and make that change from night to morning; to rise feeling renewed, revitalized and re-discovered.
Here are two rituals to use during this New Moon and Venus Retrograde and over the next two weeks. One is to help loosen our thoughts and connect with our inner voice; let us listen to our inner voice first, always, forever! And one to reconnect with our body:
Here are a few thoughts for preparing for your ritual:
And here are a few questions to ponder before, during or after your ritual:
How can you use these energies of air to move your resistance?
Where does your imagination take you?
What inspires you?
How are your words influencing your world?
This beautiful twin moon reminds us that we have two arms, two spheres, two lungs, two feet, and two eyes ~ use them and be grateful for them as they carry you on your journey.
New Moon Wishes,
