New Moon in Gemini
New Moon in Gemini is all about communication, thought, balance, and writing. As always, we take a look back to our full moon manifestations and our previous new moon intentions. The work we're doing builds on work we've already done. Sometimes we lay colorful stones that bring us joy and other times we lay uneven stones that trip us up.
Take a look now and instead of judging the layout of your stepping stones, inhale a sense of gratitude that the road is even there, no matter how it looks. Your road embodies all of the restrictions and limitations that you dared to challenge. You didn't back down when threatened. You stood up for yourself. You gained freedoms. Face forward and go on with your liberated self!
It's time to clarify your communications. You're gaining authority in your field, recognition and respect for your work ethic, dignity and success for your leadership skills. Admiration and appreciation boost your self-esteem and confidence. Feeling yourself, are you? Good. With your chin parallel to the ground, state in a strong voice what you need. Wait, I didn't hear you. Louder!
Perfect. Realize that, in the sign of the twins, partnerships and relationships are of utmost importance. With whom do you share this success? Has someone helped you to gain this glory? Acknowledge the loneliness of an island and thank the ancestors that you're not one. You will receive more happiness and good times with a strong alliance. Pay attention to all the blessings in your life.
But like Jean Carne sang, "don't let it go to your head, no." (For the younger crowd, that translates to Kendrick Lamar telling you to "sit down. be humble.") I'll admit, it's difficult to remain grounded when we feel so good about ourselves or when seemingly unusual opportunities present themselves. We might feel tempted to take advantage of many types of vices, some of which seem extraordinary, but in hindsight, compromise our virtue. When it looks and sounds too good to pass up, or if you want to do it just because you can, wait. Think. Those with false entitlements suffer the most. Reckless and destructive behaviors bring damaging consequences.
And sometimes we throw our hands up and say YOLO. If you feel so strongly that you want to indulge or if you already have, talk to someone about it. Share your shame, share your struggle. Maybe you backed down from a fight. Maybe you felt so much fear, you did what was easy instead of what was right. Keeping those thoughts to yourself will compound the dis-ease. Communicate with someone your trust. Find the confidence to confide. Help yourself to reclaim your strength.
