Astro Insight: Gemini New Moon – Winners and Losers

Astrological Insight : There’s an awful lot to play for this week & the stakes are high. Two major astrological currents coincide: some people might feel forced take sides others might prefer to hedge their bets. But I think this week will bring some clear winners and losers.

Astrological Insight : The first major current flows right into the heart of the astrological configuration that has dominated the collective since September 2015. I am talking of course of the mutable t-square – with Saturn in Sagittarius as focal planet. Mutable energy is diffuse, changeable, chameleon like, fast moving, able to evolve, merge and adapt. Mutable can change horses mid-stream. Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Virgo, Neptune in Pisces. What a cocktail !!  This is complex energy. Compromise is the key. We need to be able to mix and match, put plasters on wounds, cover up the cracks and above all, keep the energy moving. Collectively, foreign policy (Jupiter rules both Saturn and Neptune remember), travel, and difficult negotiations will feature. As focal planet in a t-square, Saturn has been under pressure. There is a need for  leadership that embodies responsibility and vision. Neptune square Saturn  – speaks of collective disillusion and distrust of leadership. This is great energy for rabble rousers and people who want to stir things up. An ‘off the cuff’ remark can set off an avalanche.

Astrological Insight : On Thursday the Sun squares Neptune. A crisis of authority. A whiff of scandal. Something goes viral. Archetypal Gemini is mind – archetypal Neptune is soul. Venus – in hot pursuit of the Sun – squares Neptune a day later. Not all that glitters is gold and the lady can be deceived.  Neptune sweeps Venus off on a cloud. A delicious fantasy. Reality bites on Friday as first the Sun and on Saturday, Venus oppose Saturn. This could be one hell of a hang-over!  The Sun squares Jupiter (Saturday) -then Venus follows suit on Sunday. This does feel pretty hyper-active and excessive and yet, it is also very powerful energy.

Astrological Insight : The New Moon on Sunday (see horoscope below) is beautiful. Sun conjunct Moon conjunct Venus all in the 15th degree of Gemini. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is: ‘Two Dutch Children Talking To Each Other and Exchanging Knowledge’. The Sun (Moon and Venus) occupy the empty space in the t-square (i.e. the area opposite the focal planet, Saturn in Sagittarius). This is reflective of a new attitude coming in. Gemini is clever -and new moon ruler Mercury is currently in strong reception with Venus. This could actually symbolise the easing of tension, an attempt at least at reconciliation. Talks being held. Deals being made. By antiscion – the New Moon is conjunct with Pluto (orb 1 deg/52′).

Astrological Insight :Mercury still holds on to the grand earth trine. This is the second major current. Earth wants to make it real. Earth loves results, something it can show for its efforts. The reception between New Moon ruler Mercury and Venus is really interesting – because it represents an exchange that links these two currents. There is an indirect opportunity to get some concrete rewards from the mutable grand cross.

Astrological Insight :For us plebs I think it is important we remain realistic. If someone paints a pretty picture – we shouldn’t be too easily fooled. If you want to get to the heart of some matter or issue that has been plaguing you for months, then remember the Dutch children talking: Be prepared to ask difficult questions. If the answers don’t feel right – dig deeper beneath the surface (Pluto is backing up the New Moon!!!! Don’t be afraid to bring things to light !!) And if new things do come up – be willing to compromise – change plans last minute – and stretch your limits a little.
