25 May New Moon in Gemini: May 25, 2017
The New Moon usually feels a little lighter to me, like there’s a release in the energy field. But the energy today is a little more intense perhaps because of the heavier planetary things going on in the background. Venus square Pluto today means business in love, power, and deep change. Are you being bossy-pants? What are you obsessing about in money and love? Can you utilize the New Moon energy to shift this obsession?
While New Moons are known as the ‘new beginnings’ phase of the month, I’m seeing a lot of energy around change. This change might not come easy (insert Ringo Starr song). Your hand might be forced. You might not be ready to make this change – everyone experiences change differently. I’m reminded of a Jack Welch quote: “Change before you have to.” The moral is, that when change is near, be like a leaf on a fast moving stream. Figure out how to go with the flow, if you don’t want to stay stuck in a tantrum. Befriend change. Befriend the next chapter. I’m talking as much to myself as I am to you guys. What do you need to hit control-alt-delete on?
Let’s take a deeper look at the Gemini New Moon: Ruled by Mercury, Gemini rules social events, communication, and siblings. Gemini loves variety and spontaneity. In health, Gemini rules the hands, arms, shoulders, lungs, and nervous system. With the Mars opposite Saturn in the background, you may notice some folks seem to be having a nervous breakdown. Take care of your health in all of these areas and be sure to check out Molly’s health forecasts to stay ahead of the curve.
Some wisdom from Molly on the Gemini New Moon: “What do you want to learn, know, talk more about? Where do you want to travel in the future? What are your options? Who do you want to meet? The New Moon is a time to plant seeds of intention—wishes and ideas for the future.”
My best advice for today is to keep it light, bring in the humor and wit to an intense situation, and to be adaptable to change. Remember: change, before you have to.
