This week I need to talk to you about the New Moon in Gemini at 3:02pmPDT on June 3rd,. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon line up at the exact same degree of the same sign, and it's generally a time when we can set intention with clarity and foresight. The trouble is that you can only see a thing clearly if you're actually looking at it – and this New Moon is in the easily distracted sign of Gemini.
Take pains to explore what matters to you, as opposed to drifting toward every shiny object that catches your eye. This is more likely to be a time when questions are clarified than one when in which new answers emerge. Strive to pinpoint what it is that you're looking for, what you actually need in your situation, and what's motivating you. Move beyond your stories and into the truest, most distilled expression of your truth that you can access. Look inward, and determine what desire is truly driving you right now. Walk all the way through both your motivations and the immediate steps you'd need to navigate to get there. For example, if you want a relationship, ask yourself why. Is it because you believe you'll be happier with a partner? That may be so, but no relationship begins with certainty and stability. If you're unwilling to be in the beginning stages of getting to know someone, then you're not likely to be ready for a real relationship. In this case, what you may need is to call in help with (or a willingness for) patience.
It's easy enough to want your ideal outcome, but this is the time to align yourself with the next steps so that you can manifest your desires, real-time. When you ask the wrong questions, you will never find a satisfactory answer. Clarify your intentions, and your next steps will become clear too.
March 21-April 19
It’s unwise to push things (that includes yourself, others, or situations) this week. Take your daring and your passion, and channel it into actively listening to the world around you, and cultivating engaged patience and enthusiastic presence. To be an agent of change in your life and beyond, you must be able to sit and let things catch up to you, just as much as you need to be able to get out there and get things done. Pace yourself wisely, Aries.
April 20-May 20
Compromise is an art; it’s not always clear what the middle ground is. Also, if you or others aren’t being honest and forthcoming, you may misunderstand where the midpoint is anyways. All you can do is mind your participation, Taurus. Be straightforward about your needs and desires. Be willing to truly listen to others and to ask questions. Don’t defend or justify yourself; instead, express and embody your boundaries. Balance is hard work, but it's utterly worth seeking, my love.
May 21-June 21
Some drama can be avoided with a simple text. On the 3rd there will be a New Moon in your sign (an event that happens but once a year). This represents a moment when you can garner greater clarity about the emotional part of what you are. It’s powerful. Make sure that you don’t get so distracted by what you’re going through on the inside that you ignore the people and situations that exist around you. Just don’t check out on others or drop the ball, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
The relationships that make you sad are here to teach you something. It’s time to look at yourself and your choices. As you honor the evidence of who you’ve been in a situation and who others are proving to be, it becomes clearer what needs to be done. It’s not your job alone to “fix” your relationships, but it is your responsibility to keep your side of the street clean. Do your part, and then take a step back to let things develop from there, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
If you’ve taken on too much lately, you’re likely to feel burnt out and overwhelmed. There’s nothing to actively do to correct it this week; all you need to do is pause. Allow space for your feelings to gestate and for your heart and body to be where they’re at. Not everything needs to be generative or on display. Sometimes you need to power down for a while so that when you shine your light again, you can do so brightly. For now, just nurture yourself, Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You can’t think yourself out of this one, Virgo. Now is the time for you to sit with your feels and get honest about where you’re at. There’s nothing to fix or figure out; all you need to do is get present, even if that means getting uncomfortable. It’s only by being able to tolerate your uncomfortable, unclear, and unpleasant emotions that you can start to unpack and truly move past them. This week may be overwhelming, but stay with the feelings because they will pass soon enough.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Hope is a beautiful thing. The thing to avoid this week is having hope for others that contradicts what they actually want for themselves. Make sure that you’re not so caught up in your vision of what things could be that you ignore what they really are. When a person isn’t trying to grow or change, that means they are unlikely to grow or change. Accept what you see, and then apply your regenerative capacity for hopefulness towards that, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Sometimes when you grow, and even when you get exactly what you want, it’s sad. Feelings aren’t always logical, and they don’t always make sense. Strive to let that be, Scorpio. Don’t try to control what you feel or to force it into a narrative. This week is likely to simply be emotional, almost as if the feelings that you haven’t had space to process are coming to the surface. Respond compassionately and with integrity, or take a step back until you can, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your actions (and the energy you approach them with) have consequences, and while you can prepare for some of that, so much of it is out of your hands. This week’s New Moon in your relationship house will bring to surface the costs of some of your actions, and it may get messy. Instead of defending or explaining, strive to listen and stay present. Your actions cannot be undone. What you can do now is understand the results and address them accordingly.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
It doesn’t have to be perfect in order for it to be right. It doesn’t have to be there yet in order for it to be right on time and on its way. Don’t let your idea of the way things are “supposed to be” inhibit you from accepting and working with how they are. This is the time for clarity, courage, and flexibility, Capricorn. Collaborate with your life, even when it takes you in directions that you weren’t expecting or don’t quite yet know how to understand.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Finding a middle ground is no easy business when you feel that you are right. Sometimes compromise is not about the best solution, but the most effective and user-friendly one. Strive to consider the impact that your actions will have on your relationships, not just today, but down the line. Everyone needs to feel useful, or at the very least, heard. Treat others’ ideas with the interest and respect that you want yours treated with in return, Aquarius.
Feb. 19-March 20
The answer lies within you, but you’re unlikely to find it if you pressure yourself, Pisces. This week it’s time to get present, to find your breath, and to get into a more open and interested mode. All you need to do is to receive the wisdom of your inner knowing, instead of trying to figure things out. The difference is subtle but very meaningful. All you have is right now; the future is truly unknowable. Honor your inner voice without an agenda. Find the wisdom that lives in stillness, my love.
