May's Gemini new Moon falls on the 25th in the US and the 26th in Australia. This is yet another dynamic lunation (haven't they all been for ages and ages?) There have been many changes before us, on every level, and, we may be considering what next? We may make some big new decisions as a result of this new Moon as it is one of change and decision. The last full Moon, in Scorpio, was one of feeling like quitting something, at least in some measure, or, we may be looking at how others haven't lived up their responsibilities. This can have us wondering whether to continue with some activity, job, relationship, living arrangements, etc. For many, it may be that we have to adjust to new conditions or situations - perhaps we've wanted something to materialise, but, it hasn't yet. The message at the moment is to continue to see yourself in the situation that you want to see yourself in - not in the situation that you don't want to see yourself in. We are finding so many signs and synchronicities happening lately. It pays to listen to the promptings from our surroundings to be and have more of what we want. 

One of the major aspects of this new Moon is the t-square between Venus, Pluto and Jupiter. In the week leading up to this new Moon, Venus and Jupiter were opposite each other. In fact, Jupiter stationed to go direct again after months of being retrograde smack opposite the point that Venus went retrograde, making this opposition all the more powerful. Some months ago, Venus went retrograde on a degree that talks about passion, jealousy, difficulty, etc, in relationships.

The degree that Venus went retrograde in early March is Aries 14: A SERPENT COILING NEAR A MAN AND A WOMAN - the following is my shortened interpretation for this degree: - 

This Symbol shows that there is likely to be tense emotion, particularly around relationships. There can be a sense of tension, fear and passion. Situations may arise where something or someone tries to come between you and a beloved. This can be a person, an event or an emotion. Jealousy, temptation, fear, resentment or separation can arise. You may need to learn to let go and find new depths to your ways of relating and relationships. Are you looking for, or have you found, your Garden of Eden?

Keywords: Enticement. Allurement. The revelation of archetypal knowledge that may not be 'socially acceptable'. Temptations. Heated emotions. Passion. Kundalini energy.

The Caution: Feeling guilty about being afraid to express your feelings. Basic instincts and sexual energy. Jealousy. Using passion as a controlling device. Being thrown out of the garden. 

Right as Venus went retrograde, I saw a brown snake in my garden in the mountains. It was quite astounding, really, as I've not ever in my 17 or so years of spending time in that garden seen a snake. Many people reported how they, too, had come across snakes (or heard stories about them). It was a very interesting time. Just this last week, Venus has cleared its shadow, and, it spent a day or two, again, on this degree. We are being given the opportunity to let go of this feeling of being 'thrown out of the Garden Of Eden', we may have to forgive and forget and let go, though, in order to really achieve this liberation. 

So, now we have Jupiter sitting stationary direct on Libra 14: A Noon Siesta. This could imply that we need to take some time out to rest, to regroup our energies. Perhaps we need to sleep alone or to be alone, OR, it could be that we're tired of not having someone in our lives on an intimate level. Only you will know how this effects your life. One thing is for certain, many of us feel like we've been going around and around and around in circles, and, we might need to just stop and smell the roses. 

With this new Moon, Venus has moved to square Pluto. This can be a decision point; we have been integrating much into our experience for a long time now, and, Venus is in a position to say yes or no, stay or go, be committed or break the ties. A decision made now can impact on many levels of our lives, not just in relationships. Staying true to one's self is key as is not vacillating nor selling ourselves out. 

Requiring more effort and decisions is Mars moving into an opposition with Saturn. Again, we may hit a brick wall and feel that it is not worth fighting, pushing or continuing to compromise, especially if we are wasting our time, feeling drained, or, feeling unloved or unappreciated. Someone, it could be you or another, is likely to be moving on, moving away, or disappearing from the scene. Forgiveness is, as always, key here. 

To me, though, is the Big Kahuna of transits that are happening, and, I see it as extremely positive and liberating, is that we have a grand trine with a kite between Saturn, Uranus and the Moon's Nodes. Putting these all together, it seems that we are in a time of manifesting our desires, changing our lives to be more of what we want, and, attracting those people, situations or events, that would contribute to enriching our lives. The arrow of the kite points directly at the Moon's south node. This, to me, speaks of letting go of the past. The Sabian Symbol for the south node is Aquarius 29: A Butterfly Emerging From The Chrysalis. We are being asked to 'emerge', to stretch and spread our wings and to fly into a new sense of love, safety and security. This speaks to me of getting straight with our relationships with others, our mindsets, our beliefs, our imaginings (most of all, our imaginings). 

The new Moon each month marks a time of new beginnings and realisations. It's like a birth after a time of gestation or being 'in the womb'. Here, the light begins to return and we can see new beginnings and possibilities. A new Moon means that the Sun and the Moon are both together - bringing a synergy of their energies together. The new Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions for the future. This period is wonderful for planting seeds of whatever kind. What do you want to manifest in your future? Whether you write it down, sing about it or just hold the thought forms in your mind, doing this at the new Moon can realise some fabulous results around the things that you want to draw into your life.

symbols_moon.jpg The new Moon is on Gemini 5: A RADICAL MAGAZINE OR PUBLICATION, ASKING FOR ACTION, DISPLAYS A SENSATIONAL FRONT PAGE - the following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom -

‘A Radical Magazine or Publication’ is shown. It is ‘Asking For Action’ and ‘Displays a Sensational Front Page’. Sometimes, in order to be taken seriously or be noticed, people need to do or say something rousing, radical or out of the ordinary especially when there is a need, or a desire, to change things. There are probably some strong feelings that ‘Action’ needs to be taken – bear in mind, however, that the status quo can be very hard to awaken, change or shift. As this is a ‘Radical Magazine’ it can lead to moves that are disruptive or even threatening to stability or security in some measure. Further, the ‘Action’ that is being called for can lead to less than desirable outcomes. Events that unfold can be highly charged emotionally.

Oracle: You may be motivated for change, and getting the attention of those around you may require radical and even abrasive action. This Symbol can equally be seen from the opposite view; perhaps you are having difficulty with someone who is being noisy, disruptive, demanding or looking to cause change. Whichever, the issue is most likely overblown and exaggerated in some way. There may be a lot of dramatic ‘Action’ and overreaction to what is said or done. Things may currently seem threatening but are probably just reflections of moments in time and likely to pass before long. Someone may meet his or her match vocally. Attention-seeking devices, such as the ‘Sensational Front Page’ should be used very carefully and never against anyone. Once everyone is paying attention there may need to be an effort to publicize a more reasonable perspective. Sometimes we overuse terms like “you never” and “that’s the last time I ever…” It is important to get past the exaggerated ‘Sensational’ words and look at why such large statements are thought necessary in the first place.

Keywords: Speaking one’s mind. Messages and news that awakes or shocks. The need for reform. Challenging outlooks. Breaking out of constraints. The media. Issues of propaganda. Headlines that promise more than they deliver. Revolutions. Social or emotional causes. Conspiracy theories. Printing presses. Publishing. Publicity. Gaining attention. Speaking one’s truth without fear of consequences. Fake or real news? 

The Caution: Being argumentative. Arousing others for selfish reasons. Distortions of the truth. Misinformation and disinformation. Getting the whole picture wrong. Exploitation of situations. Overstating messages. Biased information. Old and outworn news. 

The Karmic Degree for the Moon is Gemini 4: HOLLY AND MISTLETOE BRING CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TO A HOME

This Symbol speaks of sharing the joys of family and celebrations. There regularly comes a time when we need to reconnect with loved ones, family, or, in a larger sense humanity, to discover the strengths and joys in the cultural and religious bonds that hold us together. Even though we may live our lives primarily as separate entities, this bond can serve to strengthen each and every participant. Remembering each other periodically helps to keep our connections strong and it reinforces our sense of spirit and belonging.

Keywords: Social celebrations of the spirit. Returning to basic joys. Remembering past celebrations of family and social cohesion. Kissing under the mistletoe. Simple gestures that remind us of larger realities. Warmth, joy and anticipation. The Festive Season. The spirit of special occasions.

The Caution: The use of superficial tricks. Performances to achieve the appearance of happiness or familial ties. Neglecting family. Excluding others because of religious beliefs. Rituals that have no depth or true meaning. Loneliness. Not being in the spirit of things. Having too much to do. The Silly Season. Scrooge mentalities that don't want to know about family and celebrations.

The Quest Degree for the Moon is Gemini 6: WORKMEN DRILLING FOR OIL

This Symbol shows the talent, desire, ability or the necessity of digging deep in order to find something or to make a big strike. Ambition in the pursuit of material or spiritual wealth can bring wonderful rewards to the surface. There's a feeling of wanting to reach into or understand the depths of an issue. This entails a certain amount of risk and may require the cooperation of others who have skills in such a search. The rewards are often difficult to find and at times unsuccessful, however, perseverance will bring some kind of success. You may have to get used to operating in the dark.

Keywords: Pursuit of material or spiritual wealth. Ambition. The drive to plumb the depths. Trying to get to the bottom of things. Opportunistic attitudes. Making a fortune through other's resources. Psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Dream analysis. Explorations, past life or present. Dependence on wealth. Research. Exploring answers. Oil and oil wells. Drills and equipment.

The Caution: Putting a great deal of effort into risky activities for uncertain returns. Unceasing work. Hoping to just “strike it rich”. Neglecting friends and loved ones. Focusing too deeply on a goal. Being opportunistic and looking for the “lucky strike”. Relying on others to come up with the goods. Gold diggers and opportunists. Exploiting resources. Depression. Digging into people's private matters.

symbols_mercury.jpg Mercury is on Taurus 11: A WOMAN SPRINKLING LONG ROWS OF FLOWERS

This Symbol shows the need to take time to nurture your physical self. The mind needs to take a rest and the body needs to be allowed to come to bloom and bask, a little, in the light. Keeping an eye on things that you are responsible for will ensure that they don't dry out and fade away ahead of, or before, their time. Weeding out undesirable factors will be a necessary part of the process as will tending to those who can’t or won’t look after themselves.

The Karmic Degree for Mercury is Taurus 10: A RED CROSS NURSE WITH WARM SYMPATHY

This Symbol shows caring, sympathy and nursing others so they may find health and comfort. You probably have a lot of work of your own, but you may have to give your time to those needing help first. A great deal of inner healing can be achieved when helping, however, this can be difficult when you have to do too much. You may have to cross over to the ‘dark side’ in order to bring light to situations. Adopt a hands-on attitude when looking after others and ensuring they get their needs met.

Keywords: Unconditional and compassionate understanding and caring. Breaking down the borders between self and others. Always having to find reserves of energy. Looking after people's physical, emotional, spiritual welfare. Giving and also receiving. Volunteer work. First aid kits. Bedside manners. Having a mission to fulfill. Having a shoulder to cry on.

The Quest Degree for Mercury is Taurus 12: A YOUNG COUPLE WALK DOWN MAIN-STREET, WINDOW-SHOPPING

This Symbol shows an image of a young couple window shopping, imagining and picturing what they want for their future. Some things may be out of reach, but that doesn't stop you from looking, planning and dreaming of what might be. Enjoy the interlude, and then get back to your real life where you can take steps to make money or put your plans into actuality rather than just looking. Jealousy and greed can rise up when there seems to be so much, so close. Realize that things of inner worth are available to you right now.

This Symbol shows the ability to help those in need of help, to provide safety, security, nourishment or emotional support, especially to those who may not know how to solve their problems themselves. There are those that stubbornly resist moving on or changing their habits, even if it is to their detriment, and providing them with a safe harbor can bring many rewards.

The Quest Degree for Venus is Aries 21: A BOXER IS ENTERING THE RING

This Symbol shows that there may be a temptation to take on issues, even to fight, but it needs to be with dignity and regulation. You may feel a need, or the urge, to step up to the plate and take something or someone on. There are rules to follow and often others will be end up being the judge of the final outcome. Make sure you possess the skills and training to defend what you believe. Remember that sometimes you need to back off if you're not winning a contest.

6a00d83462eb8d69e201b8d284af51970c-200wiThis Symbol speaks of children having to tread carefully and watchfully. Situations are likely to come up where you may not know exactly what to do in challenging situations. If you feel like you're on "thin ice" you may feel like you’re walking on eggshells; planning each step as you go and listening for cracks the entire time. If you don't acknowledge changes and adjust yourself accordingly you may be at a disadvantage. Be wary of blindly rushing into anything - you may get to the point where you can't safely return to where you began. If, however, you set out to have fun while being mindful of your environment, this could be a fun filled time with lots of shared experiences with good friends. Skating over difficulties.

Taking risks that put others lives on the line. Going too far too fast. Lack of warm clothing. Frozen atmospheres.

The Karmic Degree for Mars is Gemini 23: THREE FLEDGLINGS IN A NEST HIGH UP IN A TREE

This Symbol implies a situation of people sharing their space, living together and cohabitating as they grow and mature. Situations are likely to be full of potential and 6a00d83462eb8d69e201bb099d880a970d-250wi
 promise for the future. The spirit may not be quite ready to fly on its own and still be in need of the "mother" – or the company of siblings and friends - to sustain, protect and nourish. The time for independence will come, and probably soon, however it may be too soon to break out on your own. Know that you will be able to rise up and leave and venture out on your own. Although there can sometimes be a feeling of being alone and neglected, there is still a sense of safety.

Keywords: Discovering a whole new sense of being. Teaching. Safety. Living in small spaces. Wanting room to move. Privacy. Staying in the 'Nest' versus leaving it. Resisting change.

6a00d83462eb8d69e201b8d284af76970c-200wiThis Symbol speaks of taking a rest when one needs to. At times, you may feel the need to take a break even though you are in the middle of a situation. To relax and recuperate will often serve to give you greater strength to complete the task at hand, also, being always on the go can be rather wearying. However, being lazy and unproductive is not the answer either. Taking a “Noon Siesta” can end up meaning taking hours and hours off work and not managing to make progress or get anywhere. Striking a balance between working too hard and not working hard enough is definitely the key.

Keywords: Meditation. The need to take time out. Sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Midday rushes. Recuperating or laziness. Hammocks. Long lunch hours. Rejuvenation. Knowing when to call a halt.

This Symbol shows standing up in “Battle” carrying the “Flag” for your nation, political, social or moral beliefs, or for some issue that needs defending or supporting. 6a00d83462eb8d69e201bb099d881b970d-200wiThe “Flag-Bearer” is often the one ‘out front’, in front of the situation or the army; the one who’s unarmed and yet determined to represent their side. You may feel that there have been achievements done by you or others that need to be acknowledged. Responsibilities pile up on you, and the struggle is not always easy. Don't worry, though, although everyone around you is busy, they are noticing your leadership abilities. You are often the linchpin of the whole situation.

Keywords: Having the courage of convictions. Standing up for ideals. Representing one's collective in a worthy cause. Carrying the standard or the 'Flag'. David and Goliath. Being the messenger. Advocates. Ensigns. Leadership. Self sacrifice. Fighting for political ideals. Flag waving.

Whatever it is that you need to do, believe that it is possible and create an image in your mind and you will most likely succeed at gaining it or recovering it. Always take heart; there is energy here to recapture things that seemed to be lost. Visualizing what you want, allowing time and watching for it to manifest can bring astounding results. Sometimes, however, the “lost opportunities regained” are in a different form than we had first imagined. Creative imagination and visualization. Hope renewed. Second chances. Last minute reprieves. Being forgiven or pardoned. Imagineering. Making up for losses.

Keywords: Creative imagination and visualization. Hopes renewed when all seemed lost. Second chances. Last minute reprieves. Retracing your steps. Judging things to be positive when once they were thought to be negative. Being exonerated or forgiven. Pardons giving release. Imagineering. Retrieving things. Making up for lost ground or time. Changing your mind therefore changing your outcome.

The Caution: Relying on self-pity. Denying the imagination to recover the situation. Not noticing solutions to problems. Letting chances for recovery disappear through inaction or laziness. Going over and over lost opportunities. Finding it impossible to let go. Staring at loss and not realizing what one has.

Uranus symbolizes: The unexpected, things that are individual or 'different'. Charged, energetic dynamics, electricity, light, lightning bolts, sudden changes, those who live on the fringe of society. Sudden turns and twists of fate. Rebellion, surprises, liberation, freedom.

When you’re well rehearsed, you are able to spring to attention when 6a00d83462eb8d69e201b8d284afa6970c-200wisituations warrant it. You may feel that you need to rehearse or prepare for difficult situations. There is wisdom in practicing to reduce the chance of error or failure. However, are you going over and over possible positive or negative outcomes thereby losing the joy that can be found in relaxing and letting down your guard? Sometimes the things we think are going to happen don’t happen at all. Choosing where, when and how to be ready and willing to go for objectives is half the battle.

Keywords: Taking orders to better respond to situations. The higher self training the lower self. Exercises. Marching and going through the motions. The need for defense. Seeing ahead. Planning strategies. Fire drills. Smoke alarms. Being prepared. Issuing orders and expecting them to be followed through. Discipline. Martial arts of all kinds. Going over and over possible outcomes. Safeguards put in place. Gas masks and bomb shelters.

The Caution: Rigid routine for no real or valuable purpose. Feeling that one has always to be on the defensive. Being under attack, whether real or imagined. Overreacting to things. Feelings of unworthiness in the face of battle or confrontation. Victim consciousness. Fearful responses. Getting others to respond through spreading fear. Scare tactics. False flag attacks.

T 6a00d83462eb8d69e201b8d284afab970c-200wihis Symbol shows singing, playing or enjoying music, and, also, to be able to pick up on things that others don’t see or hear. The “Hidden Choir” brings songs, or sounds, with messages of salvation and faith. The fact that they are hidden shows something coming out of the background, something subtle, something others may miss. It can be important to be receptive to your feminine, intuitive side, as there are messages to be heard. Realize that you are not alone; there are other people who feel the same things. Watch out for mental noise. The voices of the women heard more through orthodox halls. Do you want to contribute?

Keywords: Background messages. Voices not heard or noticed before. Men, women and the church. Sensitivity to spirituality. Speaking behind closed doors. Voices from "nowhere". Melodies from the past. Choirs, organs and organ music. Channeled voices. Songs, sheet music. Hidden speakers. Clairvoyance.

The Caution: Taking undue credit for group qualities. Keeping the feminine out of the picture. Discriminating against people as not being “spiritual” or finding that some just plain aren’t! Background voices telling people how they should live. Using hidden messages to manipulate people, sometimes through guilt. Gossip. Messages that don’t make sense. Being afraid to sing.

Pluto symbolizes: Unconscious motivations, depth psychology, history. Sex, procreation at a deep level, intensity, profound emotions, taking hold of one's power.

symbols_chiron.jpgChiron is on Pisces 29: LIGHT BREAKING INTO MANY COLORS AS IT PASSES THROUGH A PRISM

This shows analyzing things, considering and drawing conclusions from available data and being perceptive of colors, light refraction or reflection, auras and light. You 6a00d83462eb8d69e201b7c8fa6dcb970b-200wi probably have the ability to break situations down into the simplest components in order to see the full picture. This can and often does lead to a greater understanding of the relationship between the whole and the many parts. Just be careful not to overanalyze, thereby losing the joy that's inherent in the simplicities of life. Taking a single vision and turning it into many individual streams can be rewarding, but it can also confuse and distract.

Keywords: Spectrum analysis. Color and crystal healing. Rainbows. Light refraction. Side effects. Considering many facets of a situation. Endless opportunities. Optics. Sight. Seeing. Copying and sharing ideas or things. Disseminating information. Auras and aura photography. Triangles. Polarization of light. Reflection. Laboratory tests. Diffracted personality.

The Caution: Locked in to a set of parameters. Over analyzing things. Being blinded by ambition. Daunted by the task ahead. Mirages. Microscopes and binoculars but not seeing things as they really are.

You will be able to make sense of your intuitive or creative thoughts as you grow and find both your feet and your voice. In finally being able to verbalize things into rational expression, you will be creating from your intuitive wisdom. However, there needs to be a caution against expecting others to verify your existence through your relationship with them. Being self reliant whilst inviting others into your life is the balance here.

Keywords: Coming into conscious form. New ways of being. Transformation. New forms emerging out of the past. Needing, and probably expecting, recognition. Feeling different from the crowd. Learning to stand on your own two feet. Problems with feet and legs. Longing to make an impression.

The Caution: Focusing on social or rational aspects before being ready. Naivety. Being thrown in the deep end. Relying on relationships too much. Looking to the other for validation of one’s existence. Co-dependent behavior. Bleak conditions and loneliness. 

The Moon's North Node symbolizes: This is known as quite a 'karmic point' (although all planets and points in a chart can be'karmic'). One's destiny in this life. The things you are meant to integrate, move towards, become. Destined relationships and relationship issues can show up here.

6a00d83462eb8d69e201b8d284afb5970c-200wiThis Symbol shows growing, expanding, escaping restrictions and evolving into a more expansive sense of self with bigger and better potentials. Like a butterfly emerging, at times like these, you are often at a crossroads or major turning point and you are likely to be able to realize many of your latent, but promising, potentials. Like an awakening, you are suddenly able to do something that truly reflects you and who you strive to be. This emergence builds for some time; a metamorphosis takes place. Ensure that you take a moment to adjust to new developments before taking flight.

Keywords: Slow building of confidence. Coming out into a fuller participation in the bigger picture. Growing up and out. Emerging from the dark. Leaving yesterday behind. Becoming more and more beautiful. Finding one's feet or wings. Metamorphosis. Huge changes in the works. Giving up struggling. The drama of new life unfolding.

The Caution: Failing to allow changes to be experienced. Feeling like one will never “arrive”. Struggling to emerge ahead of time. Feeling confined. Being tied to the past. Rushing leading to disorientation or injury. Straitjackets. 

The Moon's South Node symbolizes: Past karmic patterns to be overcome, can be habits that are good, but can describe things, relationships, issues that you need to let go of, or, hold you back from manifesting your true destiny. Relationships that feel karmic and difficult, memories from the past.
