Everything in our universe is made up of 5 elements. Air is the element that gives the ability to communicate. Communication comes in so many forms and is increased by vehicles of transportation. Transportation comes in many forms from walking to flying to texting to talking. Your ability to communicate in many ways shapes the life you create for yourself. If you have a chart that is full of planets in air signs, you will need to have a lot of people in your life to fulfill your need to communicate. You may need to be an integral part of your local community or you may have an innate need to send your message to the world. You are a vessel for thoughts to words. This new Moon is a great time to examine how you are managing your own need for communication.
Gemini is the poster child for change. People with a lot of fixed planets do not understand those who often change their mind or plans. Somehow there is a moral stigma attached to changing your plans. Plans can change. You do not have to feel guilty if you decide to make changes. In fact change can happen two ways; internally where you make the choice to change, or externally where circumstances dictate that you change. Change is the only constant in this world, so in order to be at peace, you have to find a way to embrace it. This new Moon opens the door to change.
Gemini is one of the dual signs along with Virgo, Sagg and Pisces. This means that there is another side to the person, like it or not. The other side does not have to be negative, but can be. Because there is a such a strong focus on Gemini this new Moon, the message is that there will be another side to the situation that you are currently managing. Your job is to be the observer and stay honest with yourself when you see the other side. There is a tendency to move into denial when we experience communication from another that is not what we are expecting or wish for. Be the observer.
The lunar sign of this new Moon is Ardra. Ardra is a fierce nakshatra which means , ‘the teardrop’, or the , ‘moist one’ or ‘the shining one’. The ruling deity is Rudra, god of the storms. Be reminded that after a storm there is a feeling of the earth having been cleansed. With your own inner nature, there is also a feeling of clarity that often comes after a period of intensity that involves your tears. Because Mars is involved in this alignment, issues of anger, jealousy, deception may reveal themselves. Again, be the observer and ask for clarity.
SUN, MOON, MARS, MERCURY
These are the planets that are currently lined up behind each other in the sky. Mercury is at home which gives so much strength to produce a great time to communicate. Mars can cause action and conflict. Do not shy away , rather use the energy like an aikido move, deflecting it from hurting you directly, and using the force to empower you.
This alignment is particularly dangerous for travel, so avoid it if possible. If you must travel take extra care.
