Thursday 6/10 6:52 AM EST, we experience a New Moon in the sign of duality and stimulation, at 19° Gemini.
Not only is this a New Moon, it is a Solar Eclipse. This makes it even more spectacular, more dramatic, and more attracting.
A New Moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, the movement of the moon through its different phases.
New Moons are a time of new beginnings. The beginning of a new cycle, a time to initiate plans and projects, get things moving, a fresh start.
Abundance surrounds this energy.
New Moons are auspicious times filled with promise and opportunity.
The Sun aligns with the Moon in the sky when it’s a New Moon meaning, that they are in the same sign –Gemini.
*Those with planets between 17-23° of any of the air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) or mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces) will really be feeling this Eclipse energy.
A Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. The Moon totally covers the Sun like a Total Eclipse, except the Moon is farther away from the Earth than is usual. This produces a ring of light, much like a ring of fire, around the edge of the Moon.
This ring looks like a Halo.
The spiritual meaning of a Halo is that of divinity, connected to Angels and beings of light. Halos represent resurrection.
As with Eclipses, the light will not be overshadowed by the dark. It may be obscured at times, yes, but never infinitely dark.
That which is hidden will always come to the light.
Just take a moment to reflect upon what has been playing out on the world stage. Lot’s of exposure, hidden agendas being revealed, leaving us to process and form our own convictions and opinions.
This is also happening for us personally, and in different ways.
The desire for change and circumstantial changes actually occurring, are much stronger around Eclipses. Since this is a New Moon and all about attracting and bringing in the new, we want to remain extra mindful about what we desire and what we put out into the universe.
This energy is potent and can even be a little too strong so you may also be called to go inward, be still and chill.
Destiny plays a huge role with Eclipses as they occur around the Nodes of Fate. Entrances and exits are pronounced and the old and the new tend to face-off with this energy.
Mercury rules this Lunation, and he is retrograde meaning: confusion around what we hear, information coming to us may not be factual so do your homework! Look at the source(s). Make your own conclusions after careful consideration.
Neptune is also closely linked to this Eclipse energy, further confusing our communications, our thoughts, our perceptions. So again, keep this in mind as to not get deceived by others, or even just by yourself and your own illusions.
When you hear something, see something, feel something? Be sure to check it out at least twice.
Gemini is the sign of the twins after all, double. There are two sides to every coin, every story, every face….you get the picture.
Stay grounded, take care of your physical body and do not be afraid to go inward and go deep.
You have to feel it to heal it!
New Moon Blessings and abundance for all.
