New Moon May 25 2017
May 25 2017
The New Moon at 4° Gemini on the 25th of May stimulates new ideas that may not meet with the approval of others. A New Moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for.
Gemini is an air sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication. It is associated with information, writing, speaking, dualities, and thought process. Gemini is also a fun sign known as the trickster, with a desire for knowledge motivated by curiosity. Gemini is about sharing ideas and adapting to different viewpoints. Even if we are fixed in our views or intellectually independent, we can still still learn something of value from a perspective that we don’t fully agree with.
Jupiter’s involvement in both a yod ( Jupiter, Mercury and Neptune ) and a t-square affirms that we will be working to expand our vision of what is possible throughout the next four weeks. The pressure provided by these two planetary patterns motivates us to move beyond limiting beliefs and to accept a worldview that is more in keeping with our soul’s perspective.
Venus square Pluto is the strongest aspect in the chart apart from Sun conjunct Moon. The minor aspects will trigger frustrating situations regarding your love life or finances that cause you to act. These situations or events can have a profound effect on your love life. Power and control issues may arise in existing relationships. Simmering tension may come to the surface as some manipulative behavior like jealousy or possessiveness. At the root of such behaviors would be a deeply buried fear or insecurity about not feeling loved or valued. A well based relationship will withstand the intensity but there would still be some kind of transformation to improve relationships dynamics.
During this New Moon your intentions can be related toward facilitating improvements and gaining strength in these Gemini-ruled areas. It is best to either write them down, say them out loud, or even draw images to reflect what you intend and then put it up somewhere on a wall or another place you will see it. If you like, you can also do this after lighting a candle and/or incense, which will amplify the effect of the intention. Keep in mind, however, that ultimately what will actually manifest in our lives needs to align with the current phase of our personal growth and evolution, as well as what is in the best interest of that process.
