As Mars conjuncts gas giant Jupiter in fiery Aries today, are you ready to take a chance on life and press the launch button on new projects and plans? Monday’s New Moon in Gemini brings a fresh wind of change as both Mercury and Saturn slow to station before Mercury turns direct at 26 Taurus on Friday 3rd and Saturn turns retrograde at 25 Aquarius on Saturday 4th.
The New Moon on Mars-like Fixed star Aldebaran aspects Mars/Jupiter and Pluto as Mercury aligns with Neptune, so the message is clear- trust your instincts, no second guessing! As Saturn stations, get your head on straight, check your blueprint and make sure your fuel tanks are full. Saturn in your chart and by transit symbolises your evolving potential, so, to capitalise on this retrograde, turn toward unknown terrain to gather and harvest wisdom – deliberately going off the mainstream path and beyond the norm.
One caveat…on the world stage, with Mercury reactivating the Taurus Sun’s eclipse degree and the inflammatory combination of the New Moon on Aldebaran and Jupiter/Mars in Mars ruled Aries, things could easily get combustible and volatile. In your own life, channel this surge of energy into a burst of creativity and watch the magic happen…
The Chandra Symbol for the New Moon says it perfectly:
Chandra Symbol 9 Gemini New Moon
Wild flowers growing round the ruins of a temple.
“Catching a second wind. Taking a booster rocket from one cycle to another, one lifetime to another, one whole stage in evolution to another. Shot out of a cannon to discover the next great thing, you are wildly attentive to signs and portents, looking for a way to the future. Coming out of immense soul experience. Eager for a thousand universes to come true. You feel that ultimate springtime quality of fresh immediacy, just sensing all through body and soul the possibilities, the openings, what wants to happen next. A destiny-bearer–universal in spirit, in the right place at the right time for remarkable synchronicities and huge turnarounds.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
