The new moon of May rises in Gemini and is trine Saturn this year. It brings a new beginning and a period of restructuring, building and growth. If there are loose ends to tie up, the energy is right for it in this lunar cycle. Before you get too far into rebuilding, make sure you have a solid plan and your tools in place. With Saturn in the picture, there’s an added aura of responsibility that can help advance your goals.
Intense and transient energies are in the air leading up to the new moon so we suggest you pause before reacting to inflammatory situations. Study your behavior and recognize where your feelings are coming from. This will help balance your more wild tendencies, something air signs can all appreciate.
Gemini has an abundant amount of jittery energy that compels people to socialize and break outside of their comfort bubble. Luckily we have some stabilizing energy from a trine with Saturn which is keeping us grounded. That free-spirit summer attitude we all usually feel around this time of year is going to be calmed by our friend Saturn, who has more pragmatic and patient tendencies. Saturn will help us contain our extravagant feelings or ideas and impulses to help us make a goal plan.
Mars is included in this trine and gives us the motivation to follow through with our goals. In terms of our relationships, Mars can also provide inflammatory energy that can wreak havoc if not monitored closely. Breathe before you respond to triggering questions or proposals. If you find yourself running hot, step back and cool down before engaging further.
With Venus retrograde in Gemini (ruled by Mercury) we urge you to be cautious and look closely into your desires. Find what you love and follow a plan to educate yourself on how to bring more of that wholesome energy into your life. Learning is supported during this new moon but there is danger in the cosmos with Neptune closely involved. Neptune’s ever-changing and tumultuous energy will have us questioning the information at hand, which can distract us from the truth and further disengage us from our determined path.
We have a full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th! Check back in to see what that means and know which planets are going retrograde.
