It’s a New Moon in Gemini! This marks the start of a new cycle, and chatty Mercury-ruled Gemini fills our heads and hearts with a whirling swirling rush of ideas and potential paths to pursue. A lucky and imaginative Jupiter-Neptune square makes many things feel possible and promising. There’s a very optimistic energy in the air—which feels *fabulous*—but it’s easy to be deluded or mislead, so we need to be mindful to keep our feet on the ground and not get carried away with our excited ideas. The best use of the current vibes is to work at aligning the trappings of your present with the vision of your future, that is: getting rid of old clothes or books you don’t want to read, ideas that are no longer helpful, people who drain your energy.
Saturn on the South Node calls us to figure out what we’re committed to and leave behind the rest, completing karmic contracts and bringing closure. So, how do we stay grounded when doing all this, and how do we discern whether we are making the best choices for ourselves or getting swept up in something? Pay attention to the way emotions feel in your body. If you think about a particular thing, how does your body feel? Is your attention drawn to a particular area? It is constricted? Tingly? Open? Achey? Your intuition will speak to you through physical sensations.
Anything you can do to get yourself present in your body right now will be helpful for strengthening this channel, like dancing, going for a walk, or doing a yoga nidra meditation. Our tendency now is to think about everything; there is a lot of good stuff flowing through our heads to learn from and use, but feeling how those thoughts physically affect us can be most helpful in determining how to use them as we move forward.
