Crescent Moon GoddessNEW MOON in GEMINI

Wednesday May 28 at 11:40 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini. Fresh, clean energy arrives like a warm, summer breeze. Sun and Moon trine Mars in Libra so have new strength and vigor, can stand your ground, and be more assertive. But Sun and Moon square Neptune so if not clear, balance the pros and cons before you take action. Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are still in a big square so no racing off in the wrong direction like a horse wearing blinders.


This new Moon begins double Horse month! It’s a Metal Horse month in this Wood Horse year. Time to get back in the saddle and take control. Bravery is rewarded, not complaints. Excellent time for travel, or tie up loose ends before Mercury goes retrograde on June 7. Mercury retrograde in a Horse year can be rather chaotic.


Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year. From June 7 to July 1, Mercury is retrograde in Gemini, which is helpful because Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini. Events fly by, and energy is wildly fast paced in this double Horse month.

But it’s a Metal Horse month in Wood Horse year; Metal chops Wood so be cautious and avoid accidents. Yet double Horse month can bring sudden opportunities, and is especially favorable for those born in Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep years and for the Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Happy new Moon,

    • Yes Maria. 1970 Dog has luck in 2014 Horse year.

  3. HI there! Born Dec. 1, 1978, after being unemployed for over a year, I started a job on Wednesday! not only that, its a beautifully creative job wherein I can use my journalism and yoga teacher abilities to help heal my small town that was recently effected and affected by a devastating tornado last month. This is only a 6 month promise of employment, but I sure hope it will evolve into something more! I’m teaching a free yoga class for the community on the upcoming FULL STRAWBERRY MOOn, any pointers on what I can do to properly prepare for that alignment? thank you in advance for your time! namaste

    • Dear Taylor,
      Congrats on your new good luck. This full Moon in Sagittarius blends w/ your Sun in Sagittarius that’s very fortunate for you to be who you really are, when how you feel and how you act are one. Alignment for you is to stay dedicated to your current path, and clean up everything — and I mean everything — for your full Moon event. Use organic cleaning products that don’t cause allergies so the place where you do yoga is clean, soothing, and inviting. Then clean up anything left from the tornado (or what you are able to clean up). Keep cleaning as you go in Horse year. You are an EARTH Horse so look to the Earth for balance. Wishing you well for your event!
