Typical of Gemini energy, it's a last minute/spontaneous decision to write a new, and long overdue blog! Gemini is Mercury ruled and all about communication. Gemini is an Air/thinking sign with mutable/changeable energy. It tends to be fast paced and likes to jump from one thing to another, keeping us all on our toes!
The Tarot card associated with Gemini is The Lovers. This is often a card that delivers a message of choosing with the Heart. It's all about uniting Heart and Mind and our own inner process of the sacred marriage of our inner masculine and feminine energies.
I've charged The Lovers card with the intention of receiving a message for this New Moon ~ and received - drum roll....
The message I receive from this card is to follow the call of your soul. Get out of your mind and into your Heart and take that leap of faith.
A favourite quote from Terence McKenna comes to mind ~
“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to...
Look at every path closely and deliberately. Does this path have heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you. A path without heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy, it does not make you work at liking it.” Carlos Castaneda
During this rather introspective time, we’re being given opportunity to pause, to consider. Is this path that we’re currently following leading towards peace, or suffering? In this one life, are we choosing happiness, through surrender and acceptance or choosing a battle of our own making?

“We rich nations, for that is what we are, have an obligation not only to the poor nations, but to all the grandchildren of the world, rich and poor. We have not inherited this earth from our parents to do with it what we will. We have borrowed it from our children and we must be careful to use it in their interests as well as our own. Anyone who fails to recognise the basic validity of the proposition put in different ways by increasing numbers of writers, from Malthus to The Club of Rome, is either ignorant, a fool, or evil.” Moss Cass
Alchemy, Integrity and Discernment are key words for this New Moon.
In the Earthy, Yin sign of Capricorn and with the energy of the ambitious Mer Goat, we’re being provided with an invitation to shift our awareness to being custodians of the land and implementing new ways of honouring and sharing Gaia’s resources. You may like to consider new ways you can contribute. In 2017 we were tempered. Now we have the opportunity to be Alchemist’s, turning le...

We’ve made it through the transformative waters of Scorpio and have reached the mutable fiery energy of Sagittarius. It’s time to re-ignite the spark and to rise again.
Sagittarius is represented by the archer who aims his arrow at the truth. A centaur, half man, half horse; symbolising both the attempt to free oneself from man’s lower nature of animal desire, as well as his spiritual aspirations.
I suggest at this time, that it might serve us better to take aim within. Seeking any self imposed sense of limitation, anything less than love, reflecting on our self worth and asking ourselves if there’s anything preventing us from aiming high and having the faith in ourselves, to get to where we want to go. Knowing that we can take the high road and setting sights on how we might apply ourselves to our purpose, our mission.
Sagittarius is the sign of the wisdom seeker and vision quester, represented in Tarot by card 14. T...
“In the process of falling to the earth, seeping into the ground, and then emerging, water obtains information from various minerals and becomes wise.” Masaru Emoto
Scorpio is a feminine water sign, so you may like to think of this process of “seeping into the ground” as a deep sea diver, seeking the pearl at the bottom of the ocean. The “emerging” and becoming wise, is not only the retrieval of the pearl, but the wisdom earned from the complete journey of the dive.
This new moon (Nov. 18th AEST) is offering us an invitation to go places we’ve not yet traversed… to the depths of our being. To explore our fears, those which hold us back from living a passionately inspired life. It’s an invitation to stretch and take ourselves further than we’ve dared venture before.
Scorpio is said to rule “sex, death and taxes”. Death, both literal and metaphorical, is transformation, a transition from one state to another. So use this potent time to release yourself from what no longer brings joy...
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
With the Sun and Moon conjoined (together) in Leo, and Leo ruling the Heart, the message of this New Moon eclipse is one of heart connection and expression.
