Information, misinformation, disinformation, and data:
We might not know what to call it,
but we certainly are drowning in it. ― Roger Spitz
This month’s New Moon falls in the communicative and versatile sign of the twins — Gemini. This ever-youthful sign is driven to discovery through curiosity, diversity, and duality. Its nature is one of restlessness, as it abhors monotony. Gemini is associated with our thought processes, the joy of learning, and gathering and dispersing information. A note of caution about this sign, however — taking in too much information, too quickly, can result in mental unrest.
Because this New Moon is in a challenging relationship with Neptune, the planet of ambiguity and uncertainty, it is inviting each of us to express our values and needs clearly. With Gemini’s quest for knowledge, this New Moon is a cosmic–call to be discerning of the information (or disinformation) that you absorb, while simultaneously being mindful of what you share with others.
A New Moon occurs in the first phase of the 28-day lunation cycle and is not visible to the naked eye. The darkness of a New Moon represents a symbolic time to plant seeds of intention for new beginnings in your life. Take time during this New Moon to set intentions for future growth that can sprout when the Sun’s light is once again reflected in the lunation cycle.
Below are some Gemini key words that can assist you in your intention setting. Lastly, during this era of abundant information, do your best to practice one of Gemini’s many important gifts — the art of flexibility.
Gemini Key Words: thoughts, ideas, gossip, education, learning disorders, analytical, relative truth vs. belief, restlessness, siblings, enjoys embracing diversity
