Astrology ... Signs From The Heart
May 28, 2014

Today's New Moon is a favorable time to reflect in stillness. In the quiet moment, take time to listen to what your heart is yearning for, because this is where your wishes, dreams, and New Moon intentions are made from. With the Moon in the sign of chatty Gemini, sitting still, and in silence, is probably not going to be that easy.

New Moon’s invite us to wipe the emotional slate clean, which can give us a fresh emotional approach for new beginnings. Take notice how present thoughts and emotions are harmonizing to become one. While this is a very powerful force, this particular energy can be accompanied with some sort of discomfort and fatigue from fluctuating moods. Anxiety, insomnia, and nervous energy could also be shared in this Mercury experience. Recharge your power source with quiet time in solitude, plenty of hydration and rest for self-care.

One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can’t utter. James Earl Jones

The Gemini Moon supports our need to intellectualize what we’re feeling, so in today's intentions, concentrate in areas of communications, dreamy thoughts, short trips, friendships, collecting advice, socializing, learning, reading and writing. There’s going to be a lot of buzz in the air with so much thinking and talking going on. It's all good stuff, as communications stir movement, which helps to release what been going on inside of us. I’m personally a big fan of this, especially when I’m out of my office and driving around - where no one can hear me. Just a lot of blah.. blah.. blah... but I tend to have some really good conversations with myself, because this is my way of seeking alternative routes to resolve issues. This is the magnificent benefit of this witty and wise Moon.

Words are the voice of the heart.

On the flip side, many can get so much satisfaction just from talking, that they lose track of time and effort to accomplish their goal. They think, chat, and then they add more chat ontop of chat – transforming a good conversation into mindless chatter. Talking just to thear themselves talk. Sharing whatever comes to mind.. speaking more than they should.. and tlking about what they assume others would want to hear. Like a bunch of squawking chickens clucking, while no one cares or listens. Maybe it’s a dramatic term, but noise pollution is the term that comes to mind. What’s the purpose with all that chatter? Are you creating any good with it? What is your heart REALLY trying to say?

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. Thomas Jefferson

With the Gemini New Moon squaring gullible Neptune (which is preparing to retrograde), and then to trine Mars in Libra (stationed direct now), we could get lost in our own translation – especially with a tricky Mercury retrograde right around the corner. If we trust our assumptions, we sink to a level of ego and misunderstandings. The air element in this trine is about becoming more aware, so ask questions, listen well to the response, then think about how you’d like to reply. Start experimenting by saying less to refrain from mindless chatter and unnecessary reactions; which would only mislead others from your intentions.

No words are necessary between two loving hearts.

Venus also enters Taurus this evening, while Mercury moves into sensitive Cancer on Thursday, so expect shifts. As our values proceed to change, our image and self-importance will begin to relax, so that we may feed on something that is more real and longer-lasting. At the same time, our approach for security will be a bit wobbly as we cautiously wade through dark, untrusting waters. This new sense of gentleness could expose some of our vulnerabilities. This might require protective armor as we secretly flip-flop back and forth, until we figure out our next best move. And if we aren’t better prepared, we could end up back where we started from.

Tears are words the heart can’t express.

While the June Tarotscope is available… for additional insight this week, I drew the Four of Wands and Eight of Wands. This suggests that we should 'let it be' and relax. Trying too quickly (or too hard) could easily throw life off balance. Invest energy and resources into work. Practice gratitude. Learn to listen to others, and also to your heart. In the end, words are cheap when we don’t make good on them. Understand what you need, then make a genuine effort to communicate it - without using any words.
