I cycle my attention to each area of responsibility with effortless ease and calm–neither obsessing over one piece, nor attempting all at once.
I listen to my inner voice with limitless compassion, setting aside all judgements.
I generously give myself the space and time to feel first, and speak second.
I invoke the powers of truthfulness, honesty, and genuine speech, to surround me and guide all communications I may have.
“The New Moon in Gemini arrives on May 22. A chatty, inquisitive, communication-forward moment, the section of the sky that contains Gemini is loaded by the time the New Moon rolls around. Sitting with it is Mercury, Venus Retrograde, Vesta, and the North Node.
Generally, this would be a time chock full of social interactions, parties, events, abundant information swapping – but what do we do with this energy when we can’t enjoy such pleasures? A new kind of relationship-building is essential.
Connections must be made, but with great care and consideration for the safety of all involved. Thirsty for knowledge, this is a time to seek new sources of it. In need of intellectual stimulation, this is the time to find friends, authors, and teachers who can challenge us.
Venus is retrograde through the entirety of this lunar cycle. One of the most important pieces of 2020’s astrology, Venus retrogrades through the same part of the sky and our charts every eight years. That means that this Venus retrograde picks up on a relationship theme that we experienced back in 2012.
Circling around again, we are given the opportunity to more consciously connect with a certain part of our lives and ourselves. In Gemini, a sign known for its need to exchange data and be constantly on the go, we are challenged to find new outlets for our interpersonal needs.” @ChaniNicholas
Think of this as an expression moon and a good time to reflect on what you have not been able to express, what you wish you had expressed and what you wish to express. If old issues surface around your relationship with your expression, take this opportunity to move them on out.
It is a good day to sing, to be spontaneous when inspiration invites change, and to balance your mind and your heart.
Work with air and your breath by breathing in and opening your lungs to inspiration and breathing out a new expression of yourself. You can also breathe in courage and power and breathe out any doubt, shame or inhibition around your personal creative expression.
Take good care of your upper torso including throat, neck and shoulders. Watch for fluctuations in energy levels as inspiration battles with lethargy. Be outside as much as possible and share your imagination and dreams with others.
