Normally the Gemini New Moon is known to be as free and easy as a kite flying in a spring breeze … but this New Moon in Gemini on May 25, 2017, carries a heavier burden with unrelenting Pluto and taskmaster Saturn in the picture. An uneasy Venus-Pluto square indicates expressing your emotions can stir up hurt feelings. Vulnerable Venus seeks love, but Pluto brings more than sweet romance to the picture. Additionally, this New Moon creates anxious aspects with both of these planets, confronting us with the shadow side of relationships. We are drawn toward the bright light of attraction, but ignoring the darker issues only makes matters worse. Bringing previously hidden issues into awareness isn’t necessarily fun, but the results make it a worthwhile endeavor.
Nevertheless, we may be required to take a circuitous path to reach satisfaction. Messenger Mercury forms an uneasy connection with Saturn, restricting the flow of communication. Usually, talking about a problem leads to resolution, but this anxious aspect makes us work harder for it. Although the Gemini New Moon tempts us with a loosening of personal and professional restraints, we have obstacles to overcome on our way.
Setting intentions for new goals is only the first step; we must be determined when following through with our commitments to ourselves and others.
