New Moon in Gemini

We are what we think
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unshakeable.
How can a troubled mind understand the way?
Your worst enemy cannot harm you
as much as your own thoughts unguarded.
But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.
Gemini rules information: its gathering and dissemination. Gemini represents knowledge of the material plane of existence, which is made up of binary information bits; a digital landscape of 0’s and 1’s. Gemini rules the mind and our thought processes. This is the New Moon for all of us to reclaim our mental space; to set limits on what gets our attention, and to carefully examine how our current diet of information is affecting our lives. As you may have noticed, our world is suffering from a bad case of close-mindedness fueled by fear, greed, hatred and delusion. Concurrently, we are also suffering from information overload. Our lives have become a roller coaster of good news one day, bad news the next, and a constant need to deal with the ensuing manic reactions that follow both extremes.
On this New Moon we can work toward opening the mind to a diverse range of ideas, while maintaining a perspective rooted in the principles of generosity (Jupiter in Capricorn), truthful/wise speech (Pluto in Capricorn), and a responsibility to serve (Saturn in Virgo). With Mars/South Node in Leo (egoic attachment) we will all have to work a bit harder to tone down our inner Mr. or Ms. Know-it-All! Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus in all-over-the-map Gemini and Neptune/Chiron/North Node in lightning-fast Aquarius, holding the mind steady will be challenge. If you find yourself feeling pulled in a thousand different directions simultaneously, this is the source. There is no way fight it, so do what you can to reign yourself in intellectually and verbally, while allowing the play of ideas free reign to take you places you might not otherwise go.
Gemini’s symbol is the twins, but they are not identical; they represent the broad spectrum of experience and therefore oppose one another. However, since they share a common transcendent source, they are the identical. Gemini allows us to realize the truth that all things which appear different on the surface, share a fundamental sameness.
