Like her or not, Holly Golightly oozes beauty, style, charm and uniqueness. Her ambitions to marry into $ to create a certain lifestyle don't do it for me but there is no denying her thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and communication style set her life in motion. As is the same for all of us!!
This week's Gemini New Moon is a great one for positively charging up your mindset .... something which is critical in supporting us to live purposefully and manifest careers which inspire and bring us deep satisfaction. And with a few months ahead of tumultuous energy, getting clear on what and how you want to communicate NOW will help you navigate what comes up for you.
THE NEW MOON IN GEMINI
This month’s New Moon takes place on 14 June at 5.43am in the talkative, fact hungry sign of Gemini.
The symbol of Gemini is the Twins. It is ruled by Mercury otherwise known as the solar trickster and fleet-footed messenger of the Gods. It's the fastest moving planet in the night sky and as such Gemini tends to be busy doing many things at the same time!
An Air sign, Gemini rules the intellect…. our minds, ideas and how we communicate them out into the world.
Therefore this New Moon puts the spotlight onto language - how we speak to ourselves and how we speak to others on a daily basis. Given what we know about how our thoughts inform our beliefs which inform our behaviours and our reality, this New Moon brings an opportunity to set intentions to consciously choose our thoughts. And the timing of this New Moon is perfect considering the agitative energy in the Stars now is challenging our intellect, beliefs and communication .
5 WAYS THE ZODIAC IS SHAPING US THIS NEW MOON
1. Fiery Mars & Unconventional Uranus are triggering all of us to release things that no longer serve us
Last Friday (8th June) Mars completed the first of 3 passes over the South Node of loss and releasing. The South Node is in unconventional Aquarius which is also a thinking air sign. This began a push for all of us to let go of people, places and things that are not serving our purpose/path forward. Until late September, Mars will be agitating the South Node as it makes 2 more passes over the it on 21 July & 28 Sept. With it we will discover what this energy will mean for us as individuals and what we need to release. But this will also trigger our own fears and potentially trigger our outdated belief systems.
Amplifying this, Mars is also squaring unpredictable Uranus creating a feisty energy that may lead to quickly saying or doing things that you wouldn’t normally do which can lead to breakthroughs in ways of being (but not without first experiencing a breakdown of old ways).
2. Be sensitive with your words this month
On the New Moon Mercury (ruler of the Moon) is square Chiron also creating some challenging energy around language that can cause upset or pain. Be aware that people may say things that inadvertently hurt you (even though they don’t mean to) or bring up long-buried child-hood memories. Equally you may say things you normally wouldn't that could hurt others so it’s important to be conscious of language you are using and how it may land.
3. Ramp up your Image
This New Moon is located in the 1st house in Australian Eastern states. This brings about an opportunity to start things afresh, improve our image and get clear on how you want to portray yourself in the world. From a career perspective it's a great time to review the best way to communicate with those around you in business. For example, if you've been considering an overhaul of your LinkedIn page or professional Facebook page, this New Moon brings a great chance to do that!
4. A chance to bring in Creativity &/or Spirituality into your Career/Work
Planet neptune which dissolves boundaries, brings about creativity and links us to universal energy is close to the highest point of the New Moon chart related to careers and public profile. It’s also positively amplified by a strong connection with expansive Jupiter. This makes this new moon a great one for looking at how you can weave extra creativity or spirituality into your Career….. I for one am all for both of those!!
5. Stay Ahead of the game - guide your thoughts rather than having them guide you!!
Use this lunar cycle to focus your thoughts on what you truly believe in and where you want to go. By choosing thoughts and self-talk that is positive will be extra supportive this month. Otherwise, there is a chance with this energy you could fall into reactive mode bringing up negative thoughts and behaviour if unexpected or unwanted events take place that are out of your control. And we all know how easy it can be to fall into pre-programed patterns of behaviour from the life we’ve led and experiences that have taken place.
This New Moon offers a RESET time - to choose to believe something new, to choose a better reality!
WHAT IS THE NEW MOON & WHY IS IT GOOD FOR MANIFESTING?
Every 29 1/2 days, the Moon travels through an 8 phase lunar cycle. The New Moon phase is the first of the cycle and occurs when the Moon is at the exact same degree in the Sky as the Sun.
From Earth she therefore appears as a Black Moon.
The New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another and is a POTENT time for starting things anew to manifest the dreams of our Heart.
It might feel like a quiet time, when life is veiled in darkness and things are brewing... but for thousands of years it's been considered a powerful time for planting seeds, making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or beginning any new project
