The last time the New Moon was in Gemini was on May 17, 2015. During that tie, you began to leave behind those things that gave you a false sense of mental security. Now you realize that after so much research, studying, and getting knowledge from the outside world, what really matters is the knowledge that comes from within. You’ll learn that “truth” is relative and individual and now you not only formulate your own truth, but you experience it. There is a lesson of authenticity, to be true to your truth. For that to happen, a time of solitude for reflection is important so you don’t contaminate your thought with someone else’s, to not confuse your inner voice with someone else’s. In the end, you make your own decisions and suffer or enjoy the consequences. Sometimes, these decisions are difficult because, in order to build your own truth, you must discard the one that is not working for you anymore. Remember that the last New Moon in Taurus, which happened two weeks ago, made you reevaluate your values, those things that are important and non-negotiable for you. And in order to create tangible results with new values means that your old belief system prevents you from growing, which results in modifying or changing it completely to adjust to your new reality. Today’s Full Moon in Sagittarius, which its effects last until the next Full Moon in Cancer on July 4, support you on developing your self-confidence along with other planetary aspects, such as Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius — to define your limits and your truth — and Mars Retrograde in Sagittarius, and later in Scorpio until May 27 — to avoid reacting because of fear of seeing your truth destroyed. The second Full Moon in Sagittarius will be on June 19, so these same lessons will be worked on for a longer period of time. Take advantage of this opportunity because it is very important.
Now you practice your new rules, your new philosophy of life, the one that lets you expand and grow. For that to happen, you need to be centered in your convictions, understand your life mission and purpose, and know your place in the world. That requires a sense of freedom, which will make you feel attracted to traveling, other cultures, other philosophies, study deeply a subject of interest related to the “truth” — whether it’s sciences, philosophy, politics, or religion — or go deeper in your intuition and spirituality. This new system is not imposed by others — your family, your culture, your community, your education or social conditioning — but comes from all the personal knowledge obtained through experience. The more you learn, the better informed are your decisions to adjust to your present needs and reality.
Remember that not even this is forever, that it needs to bee adjusted while you and your life change. It’s also important to remember and highlight the respect others’ path towards their own truth. The exchange of ideas is always welcome with the purpose of learning, never to impose your ideas on others, or for the righteousness of feeding the ego because “i know and you don’t”. This corrupts the other’s free will, creates separation, and can even induce violence. There is no such thing as absolute truth. This new sense of security will give you the optimism, self-confidence, and motivation to work on those postponed plans and projects because now your convictions are planted on firm ground.
Look for your zodiac sign to see which aspect of your life needs to expand, find its truth, and a sense of spontaneity and adventure until July 4:
SAGITTARIUS: Now is the time to believe in yourself and project that self-confidence. It’s a good time to explore and express your authentic self, your beliefs, and your convictions. It’s part of your process of self-acceptance. You make your own rules. Trust your intuition, it’s your best guide.
CAPRICORN: Use this time to go over your spiritual beliefs, your life philosophy, and your view of the universe. The rules that rule your life change to be more open and inclusive. Some time alone and away is important to refresh your mind and soul.
AQUARIUS: Traveling to foreign countries expand your worldview. Now you can see with clear eyes those ideals that rule your life because now you have a broader perspective. Champion a cause you firmly believe in. It will open lots of new doors for you.
PISCES: Your career is your priority now, specially if you want to go back to school, travel, or connect with people abroad. Everything related to publications, propaganda, academia, sciences, the law, and philosophy traces a path to explore and to expand your professional goals.
ARIES: This is the time to define your mission and purpose in life, whether because you’re looking for it or because you achieve a big step in its direction. You know you’re always the student, the apprentice and that every experience is a lesson. Traveling, studies, and justice play an important role in this process.
TAURUS: Legal issues related to money or finances, partners or spouses begin to get solved. Be careful about hidden issues with money or a forbidden love, because now you’ll face the consequences. Use this time to do what’s just and right.
GEMINI: Legal contracts are very important now. Study well your possibilities and negotiate what’s fair. You may want to discuss with your partner the rules of the relationship and your long-term plans. There are things to be adjusted and changed, but always by agreement.
CANCER: This is the time to adjust your health routines and rules, specially the ones you have planned but haven’t followed through. Set your long-term goals and commit to them. Any job related to academy, science, and justice will be informed be different perspectives coming from other philosophies or cultures.
LEO: Your creativity is very active and inspired. Look around you, travel, read, study, and imprint your beliefs in your work, specially in artistic projects. Love is getting closer, specially someone from another country or that you met on a trip. Open your eyes to new experiences and adventures.
VIRGO: The nostalgia for your home, your parents, and your place of origin increments, specially if you live far away from them. Plan a visit. If you’re curious about getting to know more about your ancestors and your roots, this is the time to research. You’ll be impressed.
LIBRA: Publications, reports or any kind of communication that comes from abroad are very important now. Politics, philosophy, science, and the law are key for any documents you write or sign. Excellent moment to travel, apply for visas or college.
SCORPIO: Beware of overspending and keep an eye to how you manage your money. Expand your horizons to not only increase your income, but also to set limits on how you invest or spend your earnings. Foreign clients, legal matters or high education have the key to your solution.
Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbols
This year we have two Full Moons in Sagittarius, so we will look at both, the one on May 21 and the one on June 20:
The Full Moon enters 1º14′ of Sagittarius on May 21, 2016, which corresponds to the Sabian Symbol of 2º of Sagittarius
White-capped waves display the power offend over sea.
KEYNOTE: The mobilization of unconscious energies under the pressure of superpersonal motives.
Wind and sea are in constant interplay, and the results of that interplay are inspiring and beautiful. In symbolism, the wind (pneuma is the early Greek word for “spirit”) is associated with spiritual dynamism; the stirring of deep energies this dynamism produces obeys cosmic or super personal rhythms, the power of which is irresistible.
At this second stage of the forty-ninth five-fold sequence we have a picture which contrasts the powerful but beautiful storms of nature with the often gory and hysterical crises of a civilization which progresses through war. The picture presented speaks of SUBTILIZATION THROUGH RHYTHMIC INTENSITY.
The Full Moon enters 29º33′ of Sagittarius on June 20, 2016, which corresponds to the Sabian Symbol of 30º of Sagittarius:
The Pope, blessing the faithful.
KEYNOTE: The need to pay homage to traditional values upon which the Invisible Community of the spirit is built.
The concrete integration of myriads of human individuals within a great religious institution with a long tradition reflects, as well as having produced century after century, an invisible spiritual Community. The “flag bearer” has now become the “Pope”, who assumes there of God’s representative on earth. It is a role, but culture is based on embodying great Images and deeply moving symbols in physical reality. The symbol asks of the individual: “Are you willing to live a transpersonal life as a symbol?” Thisisthefinal and supreme statement of that section of the cycle of the year represented by Sagittarius.
