The New Moon in Gemini begins at 2:40 pm ET/ 6:40 pm UT. The Sabian symbol for the degree of the New Moon is “aroused strikers around a factory.”
This is highly interesting because it shows that a plan is being implemented by Gaia-Sophia through the aspects of herself as the Mahavidyas (also called the Wisdom Goddesses) with the New Moons. Just as Bhuvaneshvari and Tara were aligned with the New Moon in Taurus as “red cross nurses” last month, Bagalamukhi’s energy is perfectly aligned with the New Moon in Gemini and “aroused strikers around a factory.” I will go into this when I record the overview for the month ahead because Bagala’s energy is complex. For now, know that she is associated with the color yellow, lions, cranes, ducks, smoke, magic, and the power to render enemies (Archons) powerless. Bagala is stunning in many ways. Her name is pronounced “Bah-gah-la-MOO-key.” Say hello.
We began the new year in April with the energy of “a ruler of a nation” which was the signal for change. Humanity began to rise out of the enslavement of its mind; individuals felt the need to become stronger and more masterful. Breaking free energetically took a toll on everyone in April. The initial stage of historical change is always hard. Birthing the “Second Renaissance” is tough.
As May entered, the energy of the “red cross nurse” flooded in to help us heal and adjust. May was a crisis situation for the collective of humanity in that assistance was needed to deal with the massive shift/release from chains. We found ourselves in new territory carrying a heavy burden and heard a call to action or a wake up call about something in our lives. Throughout the month we viewed things from different angles and different perspectives. In the process, we more closely aligned with our path or destiny or future and the people that will be a part of it.
Now, over the next month, we will be standing up and coming forward for ourselves, for others, and for the collective of humanity. The inner discipline, strength, and fortitude that we craved in April now comes to us to stabilize us. We will come into greater balance this month. Mental stability is a wonderful gift for humanity at this time of change because change, by definition, unhinges people.
For today, recognize that any storms that are booming through your life will become calmer before the Moon is dark and new again. Breathe in the serenity that comes from knowing that solutions to problems will become evident. We will look back at the end of the month and see how stunningly it was handled.
Be prepared for things that are not in alignment with your highest and best to be cut out (stopped). We don’t focus on this, but if it happens, we say thanks instead of fretting. Let the energy take you where you need to go and make you what you need to be.
Happy New Moon, wise owls!
