The moon is VOC* from 8:35 am ET through 7:05 pm.

This is a Sunday that lends itself to rest and relaxation, although some people must work. If you can’t simply indulge in a lovely day of enjoying life’s pleasures, then pace yourself with some rewards. You’ll get more results when you allow yourself some respite.

The Sun enters Gemini at 11:16 am, which begins the cycle of spring dissolving into summer and finishing projects while welcoming new.

The New Moon in Gemini/ Solar Eclipse occurs at 7:47 pm ET. The Sabian** symbol for the degree of this moon is “A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders”. Since this symbolic phrase launches the Gemini New Moon, it promises that greater transparency leads to revelations.

This will probably occur on a world stage as our electric communications explode secrets. But it also may indicate for an individual the power of greater self-knowledge.

If you’ve been on a journey to push ahead in your life and overcome the depths that may pull you down, this simple phrase is a different spin on it. When you look at yourself through the safety of the other side of the mirror, you can see what’s in Wonderland without falling into it.

There is power in knowing what’s behind the glass for you and in knowing that you are conscious of it and accept it. But stay above water. Take some time during this new moon to write down your goals for the coming month, especially ones that involve clear communications, good transport and harmonious relating with siblings and neighbors.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Taurus, relaxation is demanded. You can try to accomplish a big task, but that couch looks awfully inviting. Give in and let yourself enjoy a leisurely lunch and your productivity will increase afterwards.

**The Sabian symbols have been enjoying a lot of attention in the astrology blogs lately, and I suspect Uranus’ pass in Pisces had a bit to do with it. We are still in the process of understanding the symbols, which were revealed the last time Uranus was in that sign.
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 channeled 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.
