Give Yourself Extra Time


This week’s headline items: Saturn’s Station phase in Aquarius remains at an intensified level all week; the New Moon in Gemini becomes exact on Monday morning; Mercury’s Station in Taurus intensifies on Tuesday before it goes direct on Friday early morning and begins its post-Shadow phase; Saturn comes to a halt on Saturday early evening as it starts its 4.5-month Retrograde phase; it’s time to start to take action on our New Moon intentions on Saturday evening.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late afternoon (for almost 10 hours); Friday late morning (a little over 3.5 hours), and Sunday evening (a little over 7 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, May 30th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day. It will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. For the next 1.5 days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible.

“Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way… The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday morning, at 7:30am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 9 degrees of Gemini; this marks not only the beginning of a new Moon cycle, but we are also no longer in Eclipse Season. I also recommend you watch my New Moon video on the subject.

One major thing to note in this New Moon chart is that we have 2 planets in their Station phases — and therefore exalted)— and one of those two planets is also the ruler of this New Moon! As such, something is “in our face” in regards to the energies of Mercury & Saturn, demanding our attention and awareness; I will talk more about all of this below, but first, let’s look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon:

Gemini is the archetype of curiosity, communication in all its forms, and mental connections — it represents the development of language and intelligence, as well as our ability to adapt and relate to our immediate environment.

This is a “busy” energy focused on collecting information. We are invited to look at our mental programming and conditioned mind to see what needs to go — and what new thought structures we might want to engage with.

Since Mercury (the ruler of Gemini) is still in its Retrograde motion until June 3rd, we may need to go over thoughts and information collected before May 10th (the start of the retrograde phase), and engage with new thought structures and information after June 18th (once Mercury has exited its Shadow phase).

Here are some questions you can ask yourself for this New Moon: What motivates me to learn? When I talk to myself about sharing or processing information, what do I typically say? What do I say to myself about being connected to others? About my intellectual capacities? In what area of my life am I a student? A teacher? Am I sometimes both, depending on the day?

The spiritual goal of Gemini is the development of perception, thought, and communication; we are therefore invited to become aware of all the new connections created in the brain with each new thought or memory — and the more we think particular thoughts, the deeper the associated pathways become.

So, ask yourself: What mental paths do I keep heading down, even though I know I don’t need to go there anymore? What if I brought 5% more curiosity to my “self-listening”? Or when connecting with others?

The New Moon sextiles the Jupiter/Mars alignment in Aries; let’s talk a little bit about that planetary alignment first, before we address the Sextile to the New Moon:

Mars’ energy combines with Jupiter’s expansiveness to increase our enthusiasm, liveliness, and optimism. In Aries, this combo is quite fiery — so this could prove a very productive and busy time, particularly when it comes to things we feel passionate about, or strongly identify with.

Feel free to also watch my webinar on the subject, if you haven’t seen it yet — we looked at our own birth charts in connection with those planetary movements, to see how each one of us is personally impacted by this. Click here for more info.

Now, the Sextile of this alignment to the New Moon gives us an opportunity to… To read the whole New Moon article and get access to all of the Coaching questions, click here.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 7-11 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces?  If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So, this month, any time between 7:30am (on Monday) and 4:10pm (on Tuesday) would be best, then again from 1:49am until 7:30am (on Wednesday) — please note that all times are given in Eastern Daylight Time — the time zone New York City occupies.

Monday evening, consider connecting with others, socializing, and taking a compassionate approach toward yourself and others, especially when it comes to personal goals and passions. Ask yourself: what if taking a compassionate approach towards myself and others actually made for more fulfilling connections? (Moon in Gemini sextiles Chiron in Aries, exact at 8:19pm EDT)
