Sun is Gemini, 9° 03'
Moon is Gemini, 9° 03'
The last new moon of spring (or fall in the south) and it would seem that it is a good one for getting back on track after the eclipses. Gemini seeks out adventures even though it may not be the most sincere in nature, it takes situations at face value and moves on to the next situation when necessary. With the Moon in Gemini, we may feel a bit detached emotionally to some recent events. For better, or worse, this should allow us to leave some issues in the rearview mirror that we would normally fret over. With the new moon having no other aspect ties to the other planets, we may feel free to change our beliefs or attitudes about the past.
Mercury in Taurus is still in retrograde motion, and with three aspects from Mercury to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, Saturn in Aquarius, and Neptune in Pisces, we may be needing to clean up a few matters that are left over from the eclipses. On the positive side, we will feel less attached to these issues, but on the unfortunate side, others may be upset that we feel unattached to them. Others may still have "expectations" of our behaviors, and it may be difficult for them to release those expectations as easily. Our choices may come across as harsh or unexpected, even though, in truth, over the past few months, our decisions have been building to this point.
Venus in Taurus is at home in the sign, and is currently square to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. This can be the crack in our decisions, in that it will involve our close relationships to others, and also our financial situation. Pluto has no problems with tearing things down so that new can grow again, but our connections and financial situations are likely to suffer for it. The choices may be viewed as dissociated from our past choices, and once we severe those, there may be no easy path back. It is one of those that we really need to weigh the values of the "release" on our mental health, physical health, and relationship health.
Mars and Jupiter in Aries are conjunct. This is another "at home" placement, with Mars in Aries and feeling more power within our choices. We may feel more energy now, but our patience may have a short fuse. We tend to expect everything to happen more quickly now. With Jupiter in the picture, we may feel more confidence in our decisions as being the "right ones" for the moment.
Uranus in Taurus is the outlier in this chart. Uranus has no ties to any other planet in the chart, however, it does have some same sign connections between Mercury retrograde and Venus in Taurus. But most decisions may seem "sudden" and out of place, the fact is that the choices we ultimately choose have been building over the past few months, and for some of us, the past few years.
The nice facet of this new moon is that it is more balanced with the traits of the signs involved. We have five planets in Masculine and five planets in Feminine receptive signs. Of the Masculine signs we have two Fire sign placements and three Air sign placements. For the Feminine signs, it is a bit heavier in the Earth signs with four placements, and only one placement in a Water sign. But throw in the fact that there are three placements in Cardinal signs, four placements in Fixed signs, and three placements in Mutable, we can see that there truly is more balance across this chart than it appears by just looking at it. We have the ability to make some sound and valuable decisions with this new moon. Others may not agree with our decisions. But, that is simply a different matter, if the significance is for our own personal well-being.
