Gemini New Moon [Astro Weather]

Astro Weather: Snapshot

newmoon_geminiDouble your pleasure and quadruple your thoughts: here comes a double double Gemini month!

New Moon features two pairs of twins: Sun and Moon as well as Mercury and Venus, and all are in Gemini. Get ready for a lot of yakking about a mind-bending range of topics.

Although Gemini is usually governed by logic, this month’s vibe will be imaginative, so it’s a great time to rethink all kinds of things, from social systems to your relationships. Dial into this to harmonize with this lunar cycle. You will emerge with more clarity about everything.

This month there will be a gap between what people think and say—and what they actually do. As long as you’re on the lookout for this, you can sit back and enjoy it; however, if you like to pin people down and drive agreements, watch out! You will probably be frustrated when things don’t turn out the way you thought they would.

This month is fantastic for meeting new people for business and romance, but, here again, don’t expect any particular outcome from your interactions. You may make durable friendships, but people will be much more changeable than usual.

Healing is top of mind this month—and rethinking past mistakes. If you feel the urge to do this, give into it. This month is a rare opportunity to change and improve relationships and social decisions.

Let’s dive in!

Taurus New Moon [Astro Weather]

Astro Weather: Snapshot

newmoon_tau-2020Get ready for a month of surprises! Behind the bull’s placid exterior lurks a quintet of Aquarian energy that will keep us all on our toes—in frustrating and delightful ways, depending on how we meet it.

  • Most of us have experienced total disruption of our neat work and home “lives,” which is the kind of thing that happens when Uranus passes through Taurus. This overall theme is strengthened because New Moon will occur while conjunct Uranus this month.
  • The beautiful thing about this situation is, one person’s disruption is another person’s creativity and growth: our responses to Uranus’s throwing monkey wrenches into things is what makes the difference. Our attitudes towards the sudden, surprising changes that Uranus offers up is what creates our experience. This post will get you ready, so you can take it all in stride and not get too upset if you trip and fall here and there.
  • This month offers an opportunity to make new friends and spark new romances—and these will tend to follow the Uranian theme. If you’re open to it, you may meet people under surprising circumstances, or surprising people, for romance and/or friendship.
  • Business will be a mixed bag because surprise will be everywhere. You can help by being ready and calming some of your colleagues (the planners) who get frustrated at the surprises that occur.
  • Again, the lesson of Uranus is, when you give into its disruption, the eventual outcome is often better than planned, but it doesn’t occur in the usual way.

Are you ready? Let’s peel the onion. Continue reading “Taurus New Moon [Astro Weather]”

Aries New Moon [Astro Weather]

Astro Weather: Snapshot

The lunar cycle is a kind of astrological return that people have lived by for millennia, and each cycle tells a story. Astro Weather reveals the story, and its issues and theme, so you can be present and harmonize with its planetary energies.

Aries New Moon signifies the start of the new year, spring, and 2020’s is a doozy. This month will be very concerned with healing from wounds we received that weren’t our “fault” but which we could not avoid. These wounds tend to be to the core identity, the body, the face, one’s sense of self.

The silver lining in this is that wounds give us the opportunity to heal, and healing is growing.

This wounding and healing thread is very strong this month, so however it shows up in your life, know that it’s giving you the opportunity to grow, to heal yourself and help people around you.

This said, Aries is all about action, with thinking as an afterthought, if at all. New Moon’s aspects (angles) to other planets will confront people’s impulses and instincts, which are focused on action, to slow down and do some deep thinking. This inherent conflict will emerge in many ways, but you can take it in stride by being aware of it.

Don’t be surprised if you encounter impatient or irritable people (including you ;^). That’s part of this New Moon’s energy. Aries doesn’t like being limited, and it faces many limits this month.

You can be graceful this month by giving people space and time to take things in, to reflect, and to say what’s on their minds—even if you feel impatient. This works the other way, too. If you encounter people who feel pushy and impatient, understand that the Aries energy is affecting them.

The home and a strong nesting instinct is likely. If you encounter this, lean into it; it will tend to be fruitful. Read on to dive into the details. Continue reading “Aries New Moon [Astro Weather]”

Fog alert! A massive Neptunian fog will envelope us, beginning Sunday, 23 February. This month’s Astro Weather shows what will be going on within the fog bank. You can have a breakthrough month if you are open to operating with your intuition.

Thinking and business as usual are totally out. Mercury is retrograde in Pisces, so its analytical abilities are out of whack. People and groups who usually operate based on logic will be compromised and frustrated this month. Be on the lookout for this, and you can be the hero by encouraging people to use intuition, not logic. Logic feels safer, but the opposite is true this month.

Don’t be surprised if you and people around you are uncharacteristically insensitive, brusque, and aggressive. Venus in Aries is stressed this month, which will have many people on edge and creating conflict, not harmony.

Watch for a building social transformation agenda due to the strengthening stellium featuring Pluto.

Read on for how to make your way through the fog and to enjoy your wander! Continue reading “Pisces New Moon [Astro Weather]”

Christmas Day New Moon is serious business, and the sooner you realize it and flow with it, the better off you’ll be! Here’s how to crack the code.

Although all new moons mark the start of new cycles, this Christmas New Moon is especially relevant due to Jupiter’s energy, which expands everything it touches. Think of this month as a supercharged month whose effects will be felt long afterwards. Here’s how to navigate with aplomb: Continue reading “Capricorn New Moon [Astro Weather]”

This Sagittarius New Moon’s story is concerned with social systems, seeing their failures, and challenging the status quo. Of course, some people are always interested in these topics, but Sagittarius New Moon will bring ethics to the fore. Redistribution of property will probably draw more attention than usual. You can take this opportunity to engage with friends and colleagues to develop your ideas and intentions around social and political systems. This month is also an overture to the profound change indicated by Saturn’s transit to Pluto in January 2020.

The energy of the month has numerous channels and levels. With the Sun and Moon in Sagittarius, we expect that the overall mood will be playful, expansive, fun-loving, and open to new ideas. However, you will probably note differences between the mood and what people actually do: while Sagittarius is usually loose with details, this month, people’s perceptions, thinking, communicating, and acting will be strangely quiet, purposeful, and calculated. This is due to Mercury (perceiving, thinking, communicating) and Mars (acting) are in Scorpio. By knowing Astro Weather, you can dial into this where others will be taken off guard: people will seem happy-go-lucky, but the flow of the month will be disjointed because thinking and acting will pause while people really think through things. So it’s a kind of Jekyll and Hyde situation. Continue reading “Sagittarius New Moon [Astro Weather]”
