On June 4th, 2016 we collectively move into the mind-expanding energy of the New Moon in Gemini.
Gemini energy invites us to get curious, stretch our minds, and change our stories. It is about perception, cognition, communication and learning. Ask yourself the all-important question, “what am I positioning myself to perceive?”
Let us recognize how impactful our perceptions actually are! It is our perceptions that trigger our thoughts, and it is our thoughts that trigger our speech and ultimately shape our reality.
So, what do you perceive each day? Do you perceive the same monotonous things over and over again? Are you recycling the same people, places and things through your perceptive faculties or have you mixed it up lately? Are you staring at the same streets, walls, and faces? Are you smelling and tasting the same foods? Hearing the same voices? Feeling the same sensations? Or, could you make an effort to push beyond that comfort zone and engage with the world in a fresh way?
We tend to stay in our predictable routines because we feel safe. We like the certainty. But, let us recognize that while we stay in the same routines our perceptions and thoughts are remaining the same as well. We are perpetuating the same story. There is no expansion.
You are being given an evolutionary opportunity to invite change into your experience! It is time to embrace uncertainty for “it is only in uncertainty that we are naked and alive.” It is in the shaky [yet exciting] cradle of uncertainty that we position ourselves to write a whole new story, from a whole new perspective and develop an entirely new message.
So, shake it up and fearlessly engage with the world in all its 3 dimensional uncertainty and CONSCIOUSLY CHANGE THAT WHICH YOU ARE PERCEIVING. As your perceptions shift – new places, faces, smells, locations, colors, conversations and experiences – your story will shift as well. Ah, magic!
Welcome the unexpected with a heavy sprinkle of excitement, shock, wonder and awe. Fall in love with change, surprise, and newness and learn to improvise. Roll with the punches! If you get knocked down, get up again – eventually you’ll learn to duck and throw some of your own. The most important thing is to make sure that you are LEARNING from each swing. It is from this place of willingness to roll with whatever happens that we position ourselves for growth.
This is also a beautiful time to ask yourself what you might still like to learn. Engage with the energy of the perpetual student. You could enroll in a course, take a webinar, or go to Trivia night. Ask the questions and seek the answers. The idea is to stretch your mind beyond that which it is already familiar with.
This new moon is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius while squaring Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces. This tense aspect calls for a level of commitment as it pertains to educational pursuits, your belief system, spiritual experiences, and re-writing your story. As we invite such a wide variety of new experience and uncertainty into our lives, it’s possible that we can begin to feel somewhat “scattered” – the aim here is to find the thread that ties it all together and identify how you can consolidate these new experiences into something of value while remaining grounded and reliable.
How are your new experiences, perceptions and educational pursuits informing your belief system?
Can you integrate that which you have learned into your work or find inspiration to implement new systems of self-care?
Have you encountered interesting new spiritual practices?
How are these new questions, perceptions, changes and conversations changing your relationship to your old story?
Can you release your old way of being and step into a higher state of consciousness by identifying more whole-heartedly with the new roads that are opening up for you?
Commit to finding the answers to these questions and do not shy away based on fear of uncertainty.
This new moon is also conjunct Venus. With Venus involved, we are invited to relate with one another, exchange ideas and use each other as sounding boards. Keep your eyes open for soul mates who are here to serve as catalysts for your growth. We learn so much through the mirror of relationship! Don’t take this for granted. This is the perfect time to get together with like-minded friends and stay up all night talking, remaining open-minded and receptive to whatever roads of conversation emerge. Let your soul friends help you find and refine your voice!
As you position yourself to perceive that which you haven’t perceived before, connect with soul mates who serve as catalysts for growth, and commit to exciting educational pursuits, new pathways will emerge that support you in writing an entirely new (and more authentic) story for your life.
