Sharing with you the energy of our May New Moon in Gemini – a SUPER MOON !
GENERAL MEANING: New Moons
The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see. As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated.
The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour / consciousness. In addition, during a NEW MOON, both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun. Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon. During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.
The NEW MOON is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

Our May NEW MOON falls in the Zodiac sign of GEMINI. Gemini is an Air sign and is ruled by Mercury… thus during our Gemini New Moon you maybe inspired with new ideas, new visions and amazing insights. You most probably will want to enact upon them all simultaneously … love that multi-tasking Gemini vibration !!!!
But be mindful at this time, that more is not always better… be inspired with this new moon… and allow your higher self to follow the path of least resistance… the path that gives you greater freedom and brings bliss to your soul… the path of grace and ease through ‘conscious action’.
Our May New Moon is also a SuperMoon and is being influenced by aspects with other planets & Fixed Stars as discussed below.
New Moon: Influencing aspects
I feel that the squaring of Venus & Pluto are carrying the major theme of this New Moon, and the other influencing aspects are amplifying the intensity of this theme.
VENUS represents the Divine Feminine archetype, the embodiment of love, beauty, sensuality, passion & desire. Venus is often experienced as the great attractor – both how we attract things into our lives and our attractions to things in our lives. By things I am referring to relationships, resources, possessions, & money.
PLUTO is the planet of transformation and induces us to look into the deep recesses of our subconscious and transform that which doesn’t serve. Of course we all have free will & choice… but Pluto has a unique way of pushing your buttons and ‘making you’ transform or else ! Pluto can be pretty intense, but it can also make things happen ! Pluto is about death & birth, destruction & reformation, and endings & beginnings.
With both Venus & Pluto squaring (separated at 90 degrees), there is friction created between these two planets. But the good news is this rather uncomfortable tension gets things moving and pulls us out of complacency. Namely, we will be propelled to dive deep into our relationships (friends, lovers, family, co-workers etc) and transform or take our unions to the next level. It is about making a commitment to those that we hold dear in our hearts and seeing how the ‘challenges’ we maybe experiencing are opportunities for growth & deepening our sacred connections. Often we don’t realise what we have lost until its gone, but Venus & Pluto are helping us to ‘see’ before it is too late.
The planet VULCAN and the Fixed Star ALCYONE are in a weak conjunction with the Sun & Moon BUT they are also conjuncting each other – thus I feel they are exerting a reasonable influence over our New Moon.
Vulcan helps u break the chains of the past (particularly Vulcan in Gemini helps to release our over-critical mind) & Alcyone represents our archetypal Divine Feminine – our gifts/lessons/yearnings for nurturing, creativity and tenderness. Together they take our ‘Relationships’ New Moon theme to a new level, as we get out of the past (oh our minds love to harp on about what we don’t like, our disappointments & ‘what ifs’) and instead open our Hearts to new potentials of co-creative harmony with one-another.
And as I noted last month, for the next 6 months (Feb to June 2017) planet SATURN is conjuncting GALACTIC CENTRE at 27.05 Sagittarius. Saturn is the bringer of wisdom, our deep exploration of our karmic ancestral beliefs & imprintings and the awakening to wisdom of the Soul. The Galactic Centre is a power transmitter of energetic Waves of LOVE that awaken planetary consciousness.
When Saturn conjuncts the Galactic Centre… we are brining to an end the old stories of our lives, our world, our human experience and simply setting ourselves FREE. We close the chapter on our lives of having to follow rules that constrain our wildly passionate Hearts and step into an awakened story of divine beauty and Sacred Wealth of Soul.
As Saturn conjuncts our Galactic Centre over the following months in the lead up to our August 2017 eclipses, those who are prepared to embrace change with WHOLEHEART, who are prepared to step into the unknown (as scary and as vulnerable as that may feel)… will catalyse a tsunami of LOVE WAVES set to transform the world stage… unlike anything we have seen/experienced in our lift time.
New Moon: Super Moon
Our May 2017 New Moon is also a Super Moon !
Energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams.
You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !
Goodwill Full Moon
Our May 2017 Gemini Super New Moon sits mid-point between our WESAK Full Moon (2 weeks ago on May 10/11) and our upcoming Goodwill Full Moon on June 9, 2017 (the third of 3 powerful & sequential Full Moons).
I will write more about the Goodwill Full Moon next month & the Great Invocation – a prayer for all humanity in the Age of Aquarius – over the next 2,000 years – for the spiritual evolution of humanity.
The Goodwill Full Moon Great Invocation is to be used by and for humanity to usher in this new dawn, as this most sacred prayer calls us to dream the dream of a new Earth, transcend the limiting beliefs of our physical world and open our hearts and minds to the miracles that are created through the power of LOVE.
