The moon enters Gemini at 12:47 a.m. ET. A Mercury/Venus picture in the morning encourages pleasant exchanges and productive communications. Childlike play can create moments of joy reminiscent of your own childhood pleasures or present an opportunity to experience what you’d missed.
This New Moon has an engine behind it, with support from the Libra Mars, so anything you think to begin that requires partnering, is well supported. The caveat is you have to choose your partner(s) wisely, without any illusions about who s/he is
The Sabian Symbol** for the New Moon is “An industrial strike”. This image has been traditionally depicted as workers banding together to picket and strike their grievances against a company. This may be a piece of the message, as the support from Mars encourages you to state your passion with a willingness to compromise but not to give up. Yet, consider the “industrial strike” of a corporation that moves forward with an agenda or policy that affects many and feels like a calculated attack. This level of force behind a one-two punch has far-reverberating consequences. There is no reason, however, that the strike needs to hurt or have negative effects on someone else.
If you see yourself as an enterprise that needs to make specific decisions for a long-range plan, you may well have a “strike” that needs to be made as a bold initiative.
A Sun/Neptune picture in the sky may indicate some confusion or present the friction in trying to dam a large body of water. This can manifest in a great well of emotion that is determined to come through, regardless of the appropriateness of the timing. There is the potential for inspired leaps that create new visions. A willingness to navigate through the unfathomable enables eventual flashes of brilliance.
Venus enters Taurus at 9:45 p.m. ET, which initiates a cycle when the appreciation of scents and textures creates a multi-dimensional level of sensuality. This can be an exquisite season for those who take the time to savor the tastes.
** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
