Weekly Forecast: May 18-22, 2020 – New Moon In Gemini, SHINY

love deskAll week we’re building toward the new moon in Gemini. It’s especially important as the north node has just moved into Gemini. It’s at the for end at 29 while the new moon takes place at 2 degrees. But it is the intro to eclipse season which will be here in a hot minute along with Gemini season.

Monday and Tuesday, the Moon moves through Aries. Monday it sextiles Gemini Mercury and Venus, exact with Venus overnight. Tuesday, the Aries Moon squares Pluto then Jupiter. The collective mood is simple and active, but the effect can feel reckless as it picks up momentum.

Retrograde Venus moves back into square with Neptune, though it never pulled too far away in the first place. Values and resources are foggy, in flux, intangible, but we’re filled with imaginative impulses and a delicate aesthetic. The Moon touches highlights musing and dreaming that could wind up being quite useful. It may feel like there’s a rush when there’s not. Identify your needs and wants; the chase can come later.

Late Tuesday, the Moon moves to Taurus and a square to Saturn. The slow-down in the mood may feel abrupt if you’re not already decelerating.

Wednesday, The Taurus Moon sextiles Mars in Pisces and moves to conjoin Uranus.The Sun heads into the first degree of Gemini and Mars begins a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. Once in Gemini, the Sun trines Pallas and Saturn. NOW the ideas take shape in actionable form, all of a sudden. If you see an opportunity and it feels right, take it. The mode of the day stabilizes at the same time that the reasons for waiting become clear.

It likely won’t be the stable plan you expect, however. And how we proceed is also unexpected and the perceptions surrounding it may change. But the science is solid.

Wednesday afternoon, Venus makes its exact re-square to Neptune with Mercury in close proximity. They square again in late July at the same degree with Venus direct and Neptune retrograde. Pay attention to Venus matters at this time so you can compare notes later.

Thursday, the Taurus Moon sextiles Neptune and trines Pluto then Jupiter (overnight). It’s a great day to take advantage of a pleasurable option for enjoying the fruits of the day and any break you’re able to catch. The Sun’s trine to Saturn keeps us stable in the air. We may actually be getter somewhere even if the fact is not yet clear.

Early Friday morning, Mercury conjoins Venus exactly then squares Neptune. The Sun makes its exact trine to Saturn. Mercury benefits from the airy and sweet infusion of Venus-Neptune; yearning is felt in the senses, fleeting and carrying fragile memories, scents, and sounds. It may be difficult to separate what is current from what is tempting but an illusory enticement or airy metaphor.

Then the Moon moves to Gemini. It trines Pallas and moves into conjunction with the Sun, the new moon. It’s another beginning to our Moon cycle – in trine to Saturn and Pallas as ruler Mercury conjoins Venus and squares Neptune; as Mars sexiles Uranus. It’s tricky in the planning but perfectly timed in the execution.

As I thought of my impressions of this new moon, it was clear that in Gemini there is not just one way it can go. What is clear is the lack of clarity. I had a line from one of my movies pop into my head. I had to watch the movie (skip around in it) to figure out when it happened and who said it.

Firefly: Serentiy It’s a sci-fi western dripping with Venus-Neptune and action in space (Mars-Uranus). This movie comes after the culmination of an unexpected cancelation of a beloved cult series (like this new moon coming after a rough full moon in Scorpio?). It is also a stand-alone story in itself.

The spaceship pilot Wash: “We’re flying a lot blinder than usual here; we need to get our bearings. I think we need to talk to Mr. Universe.” . Captain Mal calls him up on the space radio and asks what’s going on, what has he heard as all their contacts have gone silent and they haven’t gotten any news. They’re afraid and shaken.
Mr. Universe: “Can’t stop the signal, Mal. Everything’s gotta go somewhere and I go everywhere.”

That’s this week, our process, our new moon.

“We’re still flyin.”
“That’s not much.”
“It’s enough.”

We have a new lesson this week with this lunation, in air and in mutable flow. Aries Chiron sits between Mars and Uranus.

Malcolm Reynolds: Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens.”

What does this metaphor mean to you and your possible new moon experience? We are all connected by the same dream, but every dreamer is different.

  1. I really did not expect no virus to shake me off. Whoda thunk. I am both ecstatically excited to meet the challenge of survival and also kinda skeerd. I am in wonder as the tv tells me we are returning to normal. I don’t even remember what that was. But there are people doing it supposedly. They got the microphone right now. So what do I know? Are you sure we are all dreaming the same dream. I can’t relate. One of my daily contacts tells me a lot can happen in your life yet. I have no clue. But it will be a simpler lifestyle, that’s for certain.

  2. My oh my, Satori. How you can say it (or write it, to be specific).

    Love should keep us in the air when everything else crashes, right?
    It’s love that makes the boat float.
    But if you’re afraid of rocking that boat, she will eventually keen, because of the luggage/baggage she has in her, yes?

    Yesterday my partner finally told me the truth about an intimate matter he had been un-aware of, and the whole thing REEKS of a punch drunk transitting Neptune making a grand cross between his Gemini Rx Venus, his own Neptune and an opposition to Mars/Saturn conjunct in Virgo. Also, Venus is square that Saturn/Mars constallation.

    Punch drunk Neptune on drugs I’d say. His whole story kinda don’t make sense.. How people don’t say things out loud?
    What made him finally realize this matter and tell it to me in a way that in no way made me the culprit, and yet … he still couldn’t really see how bad it was what he did – or rather, didn’t do in so many months?

    We love each other, but right now I don’t know what to do about him or the matter for that sake. Should I kick him out on his behind? Should I try talking us through this? What is the action required, and can I even trust him again?

    I guess this takes remorse into question – if one does not feel remorse, how we begin to move forward?
    Maybe Venus in Gemini retrograde (squat dab on his own Rx Venus Gemini atm) is not MEANT for it to become anything in this form right now. Maybe we have to give it time to morph into something other than what it was… In the meantime we can sing a song:

    “We’re still flyin.”
    “That’s not much.”
    “It’s enough.”

    And also add:
    “You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens.”

  3. Talking of boats ,I live on tiny island it was announced yesterday that ferry service will cease???food fuel etc.???what?? going thru some serious change
    If ends on May 31?too hard to think about,
    Shut down seems to have bankrupted

  4. All those aspects were dizzying, I had to ask myself what am I getting? What came to mind is compression. The outer planets bearing down. Neptune conj mars in my 4th home, Pluto hovering between my 2nd and 3rd money and everyday life, and Uranus in my 6th work and health. I think that is why I have been jittery for quite some time feeling change a comin but not knowing what. As outer forces bear down I am being propelled forward. It might not be smart, it is risky, but it is the right thing. I have to trust that.
