I haven’t really paid attention to astrology or the phases of the moon until I think this year. The moon has started to play a big part in my life. I’m one of the many people the moon has an affect on. Last month, Venus was in front of the moon and it was spectacular. I completely missed out on that! However, as the New Moon comes about this month, in just a couple of hours, I’ve been researching about it. I found this great article via 2012: What’s the real ‘truth’?
Gemini New Moon … June 19, 2012
We are on the threshold of a spiritual revolution, near the close of a 26,000 year cycle. The ancient peoples knew this time would come and left encrypted messages hidden within mythological tales and sacred sites. This New Moon in Gemini opposes the Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius, where there is said to be access to multidimensional and parallel universes, where the source of all life exists and everything is pure light.
The New Moon peaks hours before the summer solstice (June 20) which functions as an energetic gateway for the Light. The close alignment with the Galactic Center produces a wider portal for a celestial download, helping us to grasp things that are normally beyond our field of perception, and offering the potential for a quantum leap in the consciousness of humanity.
Gemini underlines the necessity of duality for consciousness to exist. The Gemini Twins were originally depicted as male and female, symbolic of the unity and interplay of all dualities, yin/yang, light/dark, within the great wheel of life. Chinese and Hindu zodiacs still indicate Gemini with a woman and a man. The glyph of Gemini represents the two pillars that stand erect at the entrance of the ancient Sun Temple, leading from one state of consciousness to another and through which the soul must pass in order to receive initiation. These two pillars, the eternal pair of opposites, represent the two faces of the Divine that connect heaven and earth within our consciousness. Both must be acknowledged equally ….. the physical masculine pertaining to the intellect, and the spiritual feminine pertaining to the intuition …. requiring us always to maintain our center.
The glyph of Gemini in its most obvious interpretation is the Roman numeral two. The parallel columns being connected top and bottom, graphically indicate the highest expression of Gemini, the ability to link opposite forces, to combine and balance the attributes of the rational mind with the higher energies of the intuitive faculty (opposite sign, Sagittarius). Our physical and spiritual powers are interdependent, one being unable to survive without the other.
“The dual mind of man must be developed to its full capacity, both the conscious earthly mind and the superconscious mind in the heart that has access to the temples of wisdom.” White Eagle
Gemini is also associated with the pairs of the body, our two eyes, ears, hands and the left and right sides of the brain, the parts of our physiology most linked with perception. Out of the opposites and through their inward reunion, all new things emerge. In the New Age, thanks to a growing recognition of the importance of the feminine, new insights and a rising of the consciousness of humanity will come
“One of the most important issues confronting us in this coming age is the reemergence of the feminine and its balancing with the masculine.” Alice O. Howell
Our personal and global challenges can only be resolved through a radical shift in consciousness. This New Moon in Gemini opens our eyes to broader perspectives and urges us to know and live our truth. It encourages us to develop and use all forms of intelligence, especially the intuition, the wisdom that comes from the heart, in the spirit of brotherhood and love.
Where this New Moon at 29 degrees Gemini falls in our charts we are developing intellectual strength and the ability to effectively carry out the message of our hearts. As we listen to our inner voice, our direction is clear. As we center our thoughts, we can pursue our soul mission and achieve great things. With heart and mind in balance, we can each cast our line afresh into the ocean of possibilities and bring into being a Golden Age of unity and peace.
The Sabian symbol for the New Moon at 29 degrees Gemini: “The first mockingbird of spring; the creative exuberance of the human soul in response to basic life experiences.”
The mockingbird responds to life by singing a spontaneous, joyous, melody which enriches our existence on Planet Earth. Are we likewise responding to our earth plane experiences from the creative center of our being? As we do so we are an inspiration to others and contribute to the happiness of those with whom we tread life’s path.
“Each one of us is just a visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our friends and companions? Far better, surely, to use our short time here in living a meaningful life, enriched by our sense of connection with others and being of service to them.” Dalai Lama

What caught my eyes the most, was the mockingbirds. Mockingbirds have many meanings and aspects to them, depending on the culture you’re looking from. All seem to agree that mockingbirds are imitators, mimicking other birds’ behavior. Some, mockingbird may also have the meaning of Joyfulness, Gratitude, Cleverness, Intelligence, Playfullness, Protection, Security, Communication. In Native American beliefs, mockingbirds just like any other bird, are messengers from the Great Spirit.
As the New Moon rises, the symbol of mockingbird may the reminder of what you are attracting or mirroring.
In another article, I found out that this New Moon will bring out our inner artists, full of creative force. Creativity, can be in any shape or form – even in the kitchen! If you combine it with the mockingbird, where the mockingbird is like a post-modern collage artist, taking samples from around it and creating something original of its own.
“No ideas are truly original, since the best artists are channels. We are all mocking birds, recycling and regenerating ancient wisdom for modern minds, so there is no need for jealousy. No egos, no leaders and no saviors.”
Inspiration is everywhere, you may take a piece here, another there, third one somewhere else and mix them all together and you will create something new of your own. I’ve realized that this is at least how I work – I can get inspired something as little as a fabric of a chair to something as big as the sky or a color, even the wind, which will inspire me to create something new.
Last thought of mine about this New Moon, it seems that duality and number 2 is ever present in this Moon again. Awhile ago, I posted about the subject, it seems that it still continues to be part of my life. As I’ve been reading about it, I immediately started thinking of Twin Flames or Twin Souls. This is something I’ve been searching about, reading about, yearning to learn and know about it.. eventually meeting mine. This will be a topic for another post.
