On Tuesday, June 16th we have the New Moon in the sign of Gemini. This New Moon occurs at the 26th degree of Gemini. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is: “Frost covered trees against winter skies” The symbol shows us the essence of the tree in it’s bare reality. And so we are called to look at things as they are. Remove all external superficialities and look to the core.

Gemini is the sign of duality, the sign of black and white. It is in Gemini that we learn through comparing and contrasting. There is much information gathered in Gemini, and this New Moon is rife with Gemini energy. Besides the Sun and Moon both Mars, the planet of action and Mercury, the planet of the mind are in Gemini. The only personal planet, those planets that mediate our inner nature, that is not in Gemini is Venus. Venus moved into Leo a 11 days ago. Venus will be in Leo for approximately 4 months as part of it’s retrograde cycle. Venus in Leo is about self-expression and about love. As we gather information and move forward in thought (Mercury) and deed (Mars) we must keep our sense of personal value (Venus) and our essential needs (Venus) from a centered and heartfelt place (Leo).

We are not in this alone, we have guidance if we choose to access it. Many of our problems seem insurmountable as we look around at our world. This is seen both in the personal sphere and the collective sphere. How can we move forward when all around us chaos seems to reign supreme. As the outside is simply a reflection of the inside, it can be said that what is being experienced in the outer world is a reflection of the inner turmoil we are all feeling.

In the chart for this New Moon we have a grand fire trine. Elementally fire is associated with Spirit. Grand trines give us access to great power, yet they tend to work in the background and we must access them through choice. This Grand Trine has Jupiter in Leo, Uranus in Aries and the asteroid Pallas in Sagittarius. This is a very tight aspect which makes it even more powerful. We have at our disposal, the fires of spiritual transformation. Uranus in Aries in it’s highest expression is our connection to our I AM presence. Our core connection to Spirit/God/Goddess/All that is. Jupiter in Leo is an expansion of our creative heart. And Pallas in Sagittarius is the creative intelligence of Mother Nature and Natural Law.

We as humans are the missing link, as it where, between Heaven and Earth. It is in the Heart Chakra, that these two forces meet to find balance. In esoteric tradition, the Heart Chakra is connected to the Fourth Ray, Harmony through Conflict. Well we have plenty of conflict don’t we? Now it is up to us to find the Harmony part of the equation. We can’t forget that the transiting North Node, symbolizing the direction of our collective evolution, is in Libra, the sign of Harmony and Balance.

With this New Moon we gather the information we need to move forward on our journey towards Harmony. Through our connection to Source, through our connection to the core of our own hearts, through our connection to Nature, and through our connection to each other, it is time to communicate (another Gemini theme) and figure things out. We all have a stake in this conversation
