New Moon in Gemini: fulfilling the need and quest for information and intellectual development (2/2)
Other significant celestial themes at the New Moon on May 30th 2022
The need for mental escape
At the New Moon, Neptune serves as the gateway to fantasy and dreamland, offering us an escape from the hard work that must be done in our lives. Some creative mental escape from reality may be required before facing up to our obligations. If this urge is not met consciously, we may be inviting unwillingly the Maenads into our lives, finding ourselves in a dire moral dilemma.
Love or War?
Venus and Mars, as representatives of the archetypes of Love and War respectively, are both strong by their celestial positions at the moment, but their alignments prevent them from entering into a relationship. This can translate into situations where we will find ourselves all ready to go out and fight or the opposite, go out of our way to keep peace at all cost.
Jupiter in Aries conjunct the Aries Point
The Aries Point corresponds to the degree of the ecliptic that marks the spring equinox when the Sun enters the sign of Aries in western astrology.
For many astrologers, it symbolizes an area of a person's life which can assist that person in achieving visibility and fame.
Jupiter will be crossing paths with this sensitive point three times this year on: ·
May the 10th
The spirit of adventure, risk-taking and conquest will be heightened and we will feel collectively and individually pushed towards greater freedom and initiative.
This can have mixed effects in the lives of Aries born individuals, but also Libras, Capricorns and Cancers, particularly those born between:
·March 21st - 30th
·June 22nd - July 1st
·September 23rd - October 3rd
·December 22nd - 31st
This same thrust towards action may benefit more positively Geminis, Aquarians and some Leos and Sagittarians born between:
May 22nd – 31st
·July 23rd - August 1st
·November 23rd - December 2nd
·January 21st - 29th
May 29th- Important date: When Mars and Jupiter conjunct in Aries.
This signals big actions and giant leaps into the unknown. Entrepreneurship and risk-taking, unbridled passions, particularly in regards to the areas of life which Jupiter governs in our astrological charts. It also indicates that the areas of our charts that contain the signs of Aries and Scorpio will benefit from a spirit of optimism and undergo a certain expansion. In these areas, we will feel more confident, more passionate then before and more determined. We will renew with our spirit of conquest in these areas. Taking big actions will heal us from traumas related to feelings of being deprived of encouragement and personal power to take charge of our lives and self-realization.
