Astrology for Friday, 22 May 2020:
Today is the New Moon in Gemini, nested in time within a dense cluster of aspects and other celestial movements. Before entering Gemini, the Moon in Taurus makes a trine to Jupiter moving retrograde in Capricorn. There are lessons for deliberate, intentional growth in the slowness, in taking our time. Mercury makes a conjunction to Venus moving retrograde in Gemini, and we may find ourselves reviewing and revisiting the words we have and have not said, the commitments we have made and kept and broken, inspiring us to ask how we might best express our love today. As the Moon moves into Gemini and into its conjunction with the Sun, both luminaries form trines to Saturn moving retrograde in Aquarius, another invitation for slowness and intentionality. At this New Moon, we might ask: what is preventing us from thinking in new ways? What is prohibiting the transmission and exchange of ideas that can lead to substantial connections? Throughout this lunation cycle, can we commit “to explore connections that are not always apparent” and “to think about things together that appear to be separate”—which Angela Davis describes as feminist methodologies? As Mercury, the ruler of this New Moon, makes a square to Neptune in Pisces, the conditions for misunderstanding and miscommunication are thick. We may easily lose track of what we think we know. Try as best you can to not assume, and if you must proceed on some kind of assumption, assume you do not fully understand and that you have not yet been fully understood. Finally, the Moon in Gemini makes a square to Mars in Pisces, suggesting that conflict and emotional aggression may arise out of the misunderstandings of the day.
