New Moon/Sun in Gemini trines Mars in Libra, squares Neptune in Pisces which are in quincunx to one another. 
Adaptation / improvisation – reset thinking / actions in order to create spiritual balance, deepen your connection to personal power via universal source – within and without. 

Mars Rx in Libra powered down the individualistic momentum, downshifting into sharing and taking on / understanding the vibrations of others.  This New Moon sets our minds free to probe, explore what we think and feel for ourselves again, regain a bit of Martian power in the headspace, regain personal forward momentum.

Venus is void of course at New Moon, floating and without shackles of commitment to any other planets save the mutual reception of Mars in Libra.  They are the psychic powers live on the airwaves – in silent rapport, agreement – working with others requires both strength of individual spirit and commitment to compromise.
Bend rather than break. 

This moon calls us to mentally plan for action –  Dream it – then BE IT.
Gather facts, information, make lists, devise plans, begin to lay groundwork in the realms of thinking / seeing, student / teaching, community / global communications.  Also of course, consider your natal house of Gemini.   

Changes can be made on your way if it doesn’t suit – this is a New Gemini Moon after all, inventive, curious and flexible.
Let your daydreams be your guide, pen and paper in hand ::: stay openly focused ::: lay your intents now that will come to fruition at full moon at 22 Sagittarius June 13, USA.

peace out



If you could get rid
of yourself just once,
The secret of secrets
Would open to you.
The face of the unknown,
Hidden beyond the universe
Would appear on the
Mirror of your perception.

Map of annular solar eclipse visibility here

Gemini house is hoppin’ and boppin’ these days. 
Venus in Gemini on April 3rd – August 7th
(5 months is an extra long stay)
Sun into Gemini Sunday 20th
Rare Occultation of Venus on June 5
All in Gemini. 

Good thing Gem energy multi-tasks well, we will need all Gem hands on deck ! 
Know how to tell when a Gemini is freaking on information overload ? 
hands are in the air waving around, lol. stop talking back away slowly….

Annular Solar Eclipse is at 0 degrees Gemini – Mercury is Lord of the Eclipse.
Solar Eclipses involve identity, ego, ambition, leadership, co-operation.
Versatility in communication is on the table for this eclipse.

This is a New Moon – a time for beginnings and fresh starts, growing upward.  New Moon feels spontaneous, filled with possibilities, intuition and instincts rule while moonlight is dim.
*Clean the corners, toss items, do rituals for closing, clearing stagnant energies, light candles and smudge in preparation for new moon.

Energies in play at new moon will culminate at the next full moon.
The next full moon is the Partial Lunar eclipse June 4 in Sagittarius.

South Node of Destiny accompanies this annular eclipse, so get ready to bob and weave with the past – adaptation, improvisation.

Thinking, learning talking, writing, siblings, neighbors, short journeys are some of the energies in motion with this eclipse.

Pay attention to what is happening in your life in the days prior to the eclipse to determine what energies are being activated in your life.  Eclipses are often triggered before the actual eclipse and the energies continue to play out over weeks or months afterward as other planets move over the eclipse point.

Early August will reveal more internal struggles regarding this eclipse energy and early November will reveal the growth via confrontation with others.
Where is the Gemini house in your natal chart ?  
Kickstarting soon ! 

Keep in mind the mutables are feeling the squeeze : Virgo and Pisces by square (internal conflict surrounding new communication energies).

Sagittarius by opposition (juggling solutions and compromise with another, via you guessed, it  – communication).

Communication opportunities are presenting themselves in your Aries and Leo houses.

Juno is in this ballgame too…actively engaging in a tug of war across the wheel, and it is walking right beside the path into the future  via North Node.

Gemini talks, Sagittarius walks (rules thighs) this eclipse is like climbing the high dive ladder for the 1st time…0 degree eclipse…the next eclipse is Sagittarius totally going for the swan dive leap of faith…it is easier by the time we get there because we have higher visions incoming all month !  Jupiter is protective as well ~
 …  hmmm interesting … eclipse is exactly trine my natal Juno at zero Libra.

Something that strikes me is this is both a chart of reaping from former efforts and also giving back to people.  (SW quadrant) 

What we are actively sowing is exactly that : Work.
– changes and transformation re: work (Pluto in Cap)
– organizing, streamlining energetic efforts across the board (Mars in Virgo)
– shifting of balance re: work, status, career, health and routines (Saturn Rx in Virgo)

Money, love and creativity are all undergoing major overhaul at this eclipse. 

Venus Rx and Saturn Rx exact trine, both also loosely trine Neptune.
Time is money.  Money talks, BS walks.  Does anybody really know what time it is ?

Brakes are on while we re-think, renovate and re-purpose love, communication, partnership and work.  *Fun times* …I think I need another vacation. yeah ok. right. not gonna happen, ha.  Suck it up sweetheart. Welcome to Uranus square Pluto !

Jupiter is conjunct Lord of the Eclipse, and he’ll be Lord of the next Eclipse, this is a keep your eyes on the prize aspect – North Node will lead you ~> find your Sagittarius house and SEE your visionary goals !  Juno North Node carrot right. in. front. of. you.

This eclipse is giving me visuals of Contact: Ellie shaking in the seat of satellite dudes spaceship Good to Go !

Eclipse luminaries are square Neptune which opposes Mars ~
where the hell are we going ? !
Who knows…?…but we’ve got high hopes ! 
Leo is at eclipse MC, and it is time to get creative, people !  Make it work !
…and did I mention I just checked out 2 seasons of Spartacus – bit violent for me, but the tribal jewelry is to die for !   Horns, bones, leather and stone – yes !

Mars in 10 in the Mercury ruled house trine Pluto, fresh new ground is tilled and ready for planting new moon thought seeds for long – term growth. Be aware Gemini is a restless, changeable energy and it likes to switch it up.

For those of you asking about spell work at new moon – Gemini new moon is in flux, neutral and dual.  Not known for sticking and staying, but moreso for ideas, observing, being flexible and spells will reflect this.  If you are looking to work with Mercury, be aware it is trickster energy !

Lord of the Eclipse is quintile Chiron. 
Mercury heals.
Think, learn, teach, walk your talk and work the witty ways out of the square to Neptune, get real, get creative, put one foot in front of the other.  Just keep walking / swimming.
Do you speak whale ?  haha  I don’t, but I do speak toad and cat. lol.

Uranus in Aries wants it right the fuq now, and Pluto Rx in Cap says you will get it when I am damn good and ready.

It’s cool, baby…put it in cruise control….we’ll get there….

Eclipse luminaries are bi-quintile Saturn Rx in Virgo.
Mercury, Lord of the Eclipse is quintile Chiron.

If you are team Chiron rules Virgo – talents and genius expression.
If you are team Mercury rules Virgo – talents and genius expression.

Either way, we are working towards healing…

Like I said… Good to Go !

Mercury rules Maps, in this case of Moai.
 I happen to love Moai and Rapa Nui.
They keep me company in my Neptunian transporter room.
(laminated poster in  my shower.)
Lord of this eclipse will be exactly opposite my Neptuner !

Peace out ~
