Tomorrow the moon will be new in Gemini. New moons are a time to make a wish, cast a spell, and lay an intention for something to unfold. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which governs our thoughts and ideas. This new moon is an opportunity to clear the mind of disquieting thoughts, begin a project, or generally seek new patterns of thinking and moving through the world. Personally I am going to be looking to this new moon as an opportunity to seek wisdom as I struggle with some very potent anxiety. Just the idea of making this intention softens me to this place of struggle, allows me to hold it with compassion, vs. anger that it is there.
In traditional tarot Mercury was known as the Magician, the great Alchemist.* The ability to change, transmute, from one state of being to another. This is the power that lies within this new moon. To change with intention, how we think and see the world. We are our own ingredients in the cauldron of this new moon. Welcome the stirring and mixing, and the inevitable newness that comes when such magic is cast…..
Make your intention. Light a candle, write it down, burn it or bury in the Earth. Create an affirmation that you say over and over, every day, beyond this new moon. Let it ripen and grow as the moon itself moves towards its full state, on the 12th of June, when the power of that intention will bear its fruit for you to savor.
Have a Blessed Day/Eve!
