New Moon in Gemini: The Pen is Mightier than the Sword…

On May 25th 2017 at 7:44pm, GMT, there is a New Moon taking place in the communicative, agile and versatile sign of Gemini. Similarly to every New Moon, this one too calls for us to make a new beginning in that area of one’s horoscope where it happens to fall. Due to the sign, the present New Moon favors beginnings related to communication, learning and travel/transport. However, the fact that it takes place at a critical degree ruled by Venus reveals the uncertainty and insecurity that these activities may cause in relationships, collaborations and financial decisions.

More specifically, insofar as the Ego is inflated due to Venus being at the Sun’s pure exaltation, relationships, collaborations and alliances are at the risk of ‘dying’ (Venus square Pluto). This is reinforced by the Sun, the Moon, Venus and Pluto simultaneously activating the Mercury/Chiron midpoint, which reminds us that ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’. The Mars-Saturn opposition across the Gemini-Sagittarius axis, the axis of communication, further attests to the above. And with Mars out of bounds, caution is needed because anger and tension can be expressed in unusual or even extreme ways

There is though a way out by means of a new negotiation or agreement that helps purge existing relationships and collaborations from everything that is rotten so that they pass onto a higher level that allows for more joy and excitement (Venus at the Sun’s pure exaltation and atop a formation composed of the New Moon and Pluto). Furthermore, potential interruptions in activities can either open up wholly new horizons or reinvigorate these activities in ways that may have seemed impossible in the past (Uranus atop an ambivalence trine with Mars-Saturn). In fact, Mercury, the New Moon’s dispositor, is in Taurus and helps with the realistic assessment of things, but it also allows for the expression of faith (sextile Neptune) no matter how impossible it may seem right now that faith can be reconciled with optimism (Jupiter-Neptune quincunx). In any case, we hope you enjoy the New Moon!
