The New Moon in Gemini has aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Mercury and Venus. It’s an air moon, ruler is Mercury, which is conjunct Venus in Gemini. What’s Gemini communication, ideas, choices and information add desire, attraction or longing thrown in (Venus).
Sun/Moon trine Saturn Rx in Aquarius, any new information, news, messages or ideas are grounded and practical, are clear, sure and straightforward. But the Venus/Mercury square to Neptune, makes it foggy. Neptune can draw you in, you may even get lost in an idea or thought or attraction. Don’t lose sight of what is real, what is sure, stick to a rule or structure, go back to Saturn, stay grounded, be practical and mature.
Trying to pin things into place at the New Moon will be slippery. There will be points of clarity or signs along the way which will let you know what direction to go or choice to make. I guess stay open and flexible, ask questions if any confusion or doubt arises. Be discerning as much as you can and think about all the information that you have on hand until it all becomes clear.

This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?

Come back to center, concentrate here when making decisions or taking action.
Libra is balance, compromise, cooperation and projection. It’s talking about all of your relationships and partnerships to all things in your life, not just people.
A lot of stuff and information is in the air, work out what works or sits with you, a lot of triggering going on as well, again, work out what’s yours and what’s not, get very clear on this.

In general, new moons are about a beginning of something, this one may involve an ending, putting something to rest, letting go and surrendering. The Sun and Moon are conjunct to Mercury Rx, what have you been thinking about, what’s going on in your head, what are you communicating to yourself about or what’s stuck in your head that you keep going over? The thoughts you’re having may help with the beginning which is also the end. Another way is to be open, receptive and intuitive to help you find the beginning and the end.
Either, get out of your head and go into feeling or get in your head and pay attention to what is going on in there. Listen and feel, will lead to knowing. Keep in mind that this is a Pisces new moon, make sure that it’s all still rooted into reality, don’t go into delusion or illusion, sand castle in the sky mode, hopefully the earth bond energies will keep you grounded.
Mars in Capricorn is harmoniously connecting to this moon, if there’s any action or way to go, Mars helps you by showing you the way or what to do. It may come in a thought, an intuitive feeling, a deep knowing. You may find that this is a way through Moon, that get’s you out of a place, situation, something that’s been hanging around since December. Being a Pisces moon, there may be a surrendering of something, handing it over, relaxing into what is.
Trust in what you feel.
Uranus in Taurus, helping you to go forward into the new future, helping with any changes that you have been going through or that are happening. Both are in earth signs offering support and stability which helps you to build. Which is what we are all doing, building a new identity, life and world. Nice time to leave some things behind.
It’s about the way forward, this new moon is highlighting that you can only go that way, no going back, no matter how much you would like to. Big shifts and changes you have been going through.
The Pisces leads us to surrender to our life now, it’s different, yes, you’ve changed, yes and it’s time to be open and receptive to the new life that is.
Pisces is the end of the road.
Mercury is Rx, so the road my be a meandering and a winding one, so, it might take a while for the momentum to build.
Generally this connection is restless and brings with it a high vibe energy, it also brings with it a break away for freedom, the last chance to get away from limitations. Ideally it’s a time when you want to be assertive, well that’s the general idea. It can also be a sudden surprise in some form, you maybe impulsive, a desire is burning and the agitation gets to you. Taking care and pausing for a moment is very useful if this pair causes you to get ruffled and fired up, because they do bring the fire, it may come through as aggression, anger and being pissed off, people or you, may be overly assertive. Everybody wants things to change and maybe the friction will make that happen. Don’t get to caught up or let your impulses get carried away and take action that you may regret. Afterwards you see where you land, when Mars grounds down into Taurus tomorrow and reality sets in.
Wrapping up a story about identity, action and direction taken from 2010-2011, it’s an ending of Uranus’s time in Aries, where a lot happened, the goal was for you to change, to be someone new, to break away from all of the ties that held your personality in, a new you had to break out. Mars last pass by seals the deal. So, the question is where are you now? How have you changed over the last 7-8 years? How have you asserted, expressed yourself, either willing or being pushed and poked by other individuals, what are you left with? What was the motivation behind the action taken. What have you learnt about yourself from others?
Mars/Uranus conjunct may be asking or showing you, are you sparky enough, what ignites your passion or desire, what sparks and excites you? If there’s no spark, passion, desire and drive, where does that leave you, in what space? Feeling no passion or desire inside may be a good thing, you’re at a blank slate, there’s room for more discovery and working out what you value in the things you desire, which will be handy in the coming years.
Whatever is happening and it will be different for everyone. It’s the ending of a story, of an old identity, “who are you…. now” and where to go from here. Taurus: Mars leads the way enters tomorrow, Uranus follows in March, pay attention to this spot, you will get some glimmer or indication of what the Uranus in Taurus is for you.
Taurus is resources, survival, material, physical realms and values. In Aries you personally(self) were shaken in one way or another, in Taurus areas of money, possession or values are going to be awaken for change.
New Moon in Sagittarius – abundance, prosperity, fun, adventure, travel, stimulation. Some may be seeking more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and meaning to your life and this will prompt you to expand, go on a journey to new places and horizons.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is backing up the New Moon it’s ready to go, to expand, a big push energy, bold and enthusiastic. Mars conjunct Neptune is a new beginnings, a new dream or vision, the seeking of something more, taking you to a higher place/ground.
The square to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, brings in some tension or pressure to act, to get out from under it, you can feel irritated and restless, channel this energy into something positive to help you work it off or get you out of it. The square aspect between Sagittarius and Pisces the action or vision is lost. The arrow shoots out, you just don’t know where it is or where it will land. The elusiveness of Pisces can weaken the energy behind the action, also makes it difficult to control the outcome, a little faith and fate may be working and needed, plus being open minded, flexible and patient.
Sagittarius side is high energy, Pisces side is less so, this may mean that the dream, vision or goal(ultimate goal) has not really formulated yet(timing), either in your mind or heart and it’s not quite ready to come to full form or be seen. Keep paying attention, you will see or know it soon, that’s when to shoot or Go. (probably not until the new year). Feels like intentions setting of: waiting for the instinctual, natural, raw, response, knowing when to Go (you’re in the ready, again timing). Don’t let illusions, delusions, fears or false starts block you from achieving.
There’s a lot of water in the chart and planets in mutable signs, nothing is fixed to make it stick.
Mercury went Direct a few hours before this New Moon, information is still coming in.
Chiron goes Direct on the 9th, more healing to be done, wrap this up first.
Keep the faith and trust it! Which is what both these signs are about.
The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.
The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio. Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries. Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better. Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self. Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.
