    watch your words…

    This New Moon will occur at 26°43’ of the mutable, Air sign of Gemini (antiscion 03°17’ Cancer).

    This is a very inquisitive, intellectual Moon, hard to pin down emotionally due to its constantly changing feelings caused by its tendency to over-rationalise everything. Under pressure this Moon is not very reliable and commitment issues may surface.

    The Moon is OOB giving it an extra punch, Moon and Sun are applying a square to Neptune in Pisces, matters, plans and thoughts may not be as they initially seem. So, despite our best intentions something could slip out of our mental grasp during the next four weeks. Fortunately, a separating square from a stationary Saturn to dispositor Mercury may initially help us keep on track.

    Mars in fiery Leo is applying a square by longitude to Uranus in Taurus and the two planets are in a conjunction by parallel of declination re-enforcing the attitude to beat our chests (at best) or become suddenly violent (at worst) particularly if our pride is involved and we risk losing our face.

    New Moons are times when we are invited to set our intentions for the month to come regarding that area of our life which the Moon is illuminating in this lunar phase. People most affected by this New Moon will be those with planets in the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) around 24-29°.

    In his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, author Raven Kaldera calls this New Moon “The Little Brother’s Moon” because Gemini is the traditional ruler of the third house that also involves siblings. For Kaldera this Moon phase in Gemini represents “the younger sibling who lives in his mind and not in the physical world since although he is intensely clever, compassion is unknown to him.”

    He continues “on this Moon we indulge our curiosity, the nervous energy associated with it can affect already highly strung people to the point of a nervous breakdown and concentration becomes difficult so it is more worthwhile to go out with friends rather than stay at home worrying.”

    The Sabian symbol for the New Moon at 27° Gemini: “A gypsy emerging from a forest where her tribe is encamped.” Indicating the reaching out toward participation in a larger whole of mind-structured existence.

    For the antisicion point of 4° Cancer: “A cat arguing with a mouse.” Indicating an attempt at self-giustification.
