New Moon in Gemini & Solar Eclipse...May 20, 2012...

("Gemini" by Hellobaby on Deviant Art)
The next New Moon is Sunday, May 20th, and this one is heavily charged because of the accompanying Eclipse.  New Moons are a time to start fresh and initiate new beginnings, to set new goals.  However, there is a bit of conflicting energy this time.  On the one hand, there is a lot of heightened powerful energy from the influence of the eclipse, and that energy gives the impression of it being a good time to set some new plans in motion, and plant some seeds.  That's not necessarily the case though.  There are actually some negative influences that are surrounding us, and a good bit of the time will be spent separating the wheat from the chaff/the lies from the truth.  The general atmosphere through this lunation is prime for disagreements of all intensities.  Gemini is an intellectual sign, so energy of the mind is high.  It could spark some new ideas, but it's best to wait until the eclipses influence wanes more towards the end of the month.

There is quite a lot happening with the planets this lunation.  A Piscean Neptune is square the New Moon.  It might promote the positive (goodwill), but it's more likely to push lies (from 'white' to full blown) to the forefront, which will fuel any fires already present.  Anxiety, deception, and confusion are all things you might feel.  Your mind could become a jumbled mess fostering a sense of hopelessness.  Prepare yourself for possible tears of anxiety and/or sorrow. When dealing with a difficult situation, it's best to have all facts clear on both sides before moving forward.  Neptune has the ability to create believable illusion(s).  It is important to understand the differences between fantasy, and reality.  Find a way to bring harmony in to bring some clarity to your mind. Healing can happen, empathy and compassion the necessary ingredients to move forward and start anew.  Accessing your spiritual self will assist things. Understand the spiritual before understanding the intellectual or logical in a situation.

During the eclipse in Gemini, Venus has been retrograde in Gemini.  It's very likely that old/past ideas and issues are going to surface.  Be prepared to deal with them.  You will be able to see some things in a different light, so be prepared for some realizations and even some negativity/sadness. This is the time to analyze your relationships, and do a house cleaning.  Keep those relationships that have value to you, and break off the ones that fall under the superficial.  The retrograde energy can be helpful in resolving things that really need to be resolved.

Venus in Gemini is trine Saturn in Libra retrograde.  This throws some positive energy into the mix, focusing on love relationships and the creative.  Things of a romantic nature can have some strength to pull from.  Existing friendships are in a position to mature and take things to the next level. Commitments or projects you have been working on will become a bit more tangible, but be sure to take things one small step at a time.  There is the potential for old connections to be renewed on both a personal and a business level.  You might also get some much needed assistance from someone with clout.  But over all don't push things.  Take it slow and easy.

Mercury conjoins Jupiter in Taurus, forms an awkward inconjunct with Saturn in Libra, and is semi-sextile Venus in Gemini retrograde.  Communication is not strong during this lunation.  No one is really acting supportive, or open to discussions.  Funds are a prominent subject with people these days.  Jupiter says we should take some risks, and put our money out there.  Agree only to what you feel comfortable with and can deliver on.  The presence of Saturn trine Venus says "proceed with caution".  Compromising might be the best thing, but Mercury and Jupiter don't want any part of it.  Brace yourself because you may have to have some unpleasant conversations.  Try not to be too stubborn.  Really listen to what is being said, and then make decisions.

As with the Full Moon in Scorpio on May 5th, this lunar cycle has a Grand Kite in the mix.  The players are Mars in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn and opposing Mars, Vesta in Taurus, and Chiron in Pisces.  The resulting energies can offer up the ability to finally learn the pain source of old issues we have been harboring.  This presents the possibility of starting the much needed healing process to overcome and release the issue(s).

Uranus in Aries is squaring Pluto in Capricorn, is inconjunct Mars in Virgo, and is the apex of a mini-triangle between Vesta in Taurus and Chiron in Pisces.No matter how irritating you find things, putting issues on the back burner is out of the question.  Things must be dealt with no matter the level of difficulty.

As mentioned before, there are some negative energies around during the solar eclipses influence.  Hold onto any ideas or new projects you have, as this is not a healthy time to begin anything new.  The energies of an eclipse can show those things that lie under the surface of our lives.  This eclipse could amplify those exposed issues, so lay a positive foundation by making an effort to be extra kind to others, and most importantly be kind to yourself.  Energies are all over the place, and will remain so until about a week after the Full Moon when the eclipse energies wane.
