Tuesday is the second consecutive New Moon in Gemini, at 11:02 am EDT. This means it’s been less than two weeks since the lunar eclipse and the transit of Venus; less than four weeks since the wormhole was opened by the solar eclipse on May 20. Remember that? Does it feel a universe away? If that second New Moon decided it wanted to be an eclipse, too, it might not surprise too many people. They do seem to be all the rage these days.
With as much discombobulation as we’ve experienced, how is your life settling down? Or is it? It may take you a few more days (or longer) to get into your new rhythm. Such a concentration of events may have knocked you off-center, though this was for the purpose of reorientation. Here’s a suggestion: rather than trying to get back into your old routine, adapt to the environment you find yourself in now.
Venus retrograde (the heart of the transit of Venus show) is still offering us meaningful astrology. As mentioned in this space yesterday, on Saturday she makes a square to Chiron in Pisces. That’s a hotly charged aspect, the kind of thing that keeps us going from one emotional high to the next.
Yet Venus is now retrograde, so it would be healthier to seek those peak experiences inwardly rather than from the involvement of other people. The retrograde is an internally directed factor, and its mission is about guiding the seemingly separate aspects of who you are into relationship with one another.
Jupiter’s ingress of Gemini earlier this week also has a similar message about resolving inner oppositions, conflicts and what many spiritual paths describe as dualism. Are the things you think of as being opposite one another really at odds? Or are they aspects of the same thing? Jupiter encourages you to see the common ground, and to recognize that parts are only parts because they are aspects of the whole.
Oh — and guess what? Even if the New Moon doesn’t decide to go all eclipse-y on us, Jupiter will actually do the honors. On Sunday at 3:59 am EDT, the Moon will occult Jupiter in early Gemini. That means the Moon will pass by the face of Jupiter precisely enough to ‘eclipse’ it.
Generally, Moon-Jupiter conjunctions are described in optimistic, positive terms. They tend to confer sympathy and generosity, good health and a concern with social welfare in natal charts. Jupiter is an expansive energy, and the Moon — though a bit more cerebral in Gemini — is an emotional influence. Note that in Gemini, there will be a flip side to this expansiveness, and it’s represented by the square to Neptune in Pisces that this occultation will be making.
