“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

Carl Gustav Jung

Today’s Gemini New Moon (10:38 AM PDT 2° Gemini) is imbued with extraordinary intellectual precision but also an intense amount of restlessness. There is a highly mental desire to clear up the confusion and perhaps even the persistence to follow through on finding resolutions to seemingly intractable challenges. Nonetheless, the forming square to Mars in Pisces won’t allow us to ignore the intangible depths of emotion, compulsion, and irrationality that are completely untouchable — and unsolvable — through intellect alone. Such challenges require compassion, forgiveness, and faith, which, in this environment, may only result in restless impatience. The hope for stabilization and expanding insight comes from this New Moon’s trine to Saturn. However, a desire for excitement and sexy solutions could easily have us overlooking the simplicity of the most practical and easily achievable solutions.

This morning, Mercury meets retrograde Venus and the Sun trines Saturn, bringing conversations surrounding love, money, relationships, and values. You’re reevaluating important decisions and possibilities. Everything is negotiable, and with the sun and retrograde Saturn in a harmonious aspect, a situation is stable, an idea is solid, and you have the support you need.

Meanwhile, the dark moon enters Gemini, and Mercury squares Neptune. You might wake up with vivid dreams, messages, and insights. If you sense confusion, move inward rather than projecting.

The moon trines Saturn around midday. The Gemini new moon squares Mars this evening, and you’re entering a passionate new cycle. You’re entering a stabilizing new phase that’s bringing renewed understanding and a chance to restructure situations and implement new ideas. Communication is in focus, and you can inspire the support you need. This is an idea whose time has come.
