Perhaps it is no coincidence that on the day of the New Moon in Gemini an article should appear in my ‘inbox’ about mind control! Thermogenetics uses temperature to control behaviour, via genetic modification, of impulses along neural pathways – here’s the link to the article that describes its experimental uses in flies……
….in reality, discrete mental control at a distance has been in existance amongst the human population in many disguises for millenia, but, as the article suggests, tieing it in with environmental triggers puts a whole new spin on weather control. It also raises the question of what is real……and this is probably the underlying theme of this current lunar cycle.
I say probably as, true to a Sun Moon conjunction square Neptune, each individual’s focus and ability to discern will be tested against the collective influences that pervade our lives, those that underly our conscious volition. How strongly can you hold your own mental and emotional space, keeping an open mind while retaining your ability to decide for your self what is in your life, what you perceive and how you think and feel?
Gemini’s ruler is on the cusp of Cancer at the opening of this lunation, so the question of personal security and integrity is surfacing here, if not on the personal level, then certainly as a part of the field effects at work through the coming weeks….and, Mercury enters a new retrograde cycle in the first half of this lunation. So, be prepared to look within, recapitulate and quiet your mind as the first quarter comes comes around, and take time to examine how much mental clutter is preventing you from seeing and thinking clearly.
Venus too is on the cusp at the lunation’s opening, and will enter Taurus just as Mercury is leaving Gemini. The feeling of being at home with yourself, of creating the right environment, finding ‘home comforts’, will assist in this time of self examination. But, will the world allow us that space……there’s the rub!
Mars will retrigger the Pluto Uranus square with building opposition to Uranus that will become exact as the June lunation opens in Cancer. Boundaries will be tested throughout this lunation. On the international scene, the NM’s square to Neptune suggests, this will be heavily spun and laced with antagonistic and deceptive rhetoric. Don’t buy it! The ‘mess’ media wants your attention for a reason……
Jupiter, Chiron and Saturn hold their grand water trine for the first week of this lunation, until Jupiter progresses out of orb into the third decan of Cancer – this has been a major influence in the background of world events over the last month or so, emphasising issues around accountability and bringing a dampening quality of caution and wisdom in the face of outright provocation. With the breakdown of this trine the boundaries may be tested once again….see the above!
However, the trine between Chiron and Saturn holds……trust your instincts, and your innate wisdom at all times as it is these ‘powers’ that ensure our lives are not inadvertantly infiltrated, that our ability to discern and ‘think for ourselves’ reflect our personal truths. This strengthens our own individual paths in the world, as well as our ability to walk them.
This is the first lunation since the lunar and solar eclipses of the last…….think back over what has transpired over this last month, do a SWOT test on key personal events, that is, look at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and ‘threats’ each presents to you, and consider what your own advice to yourself might now be in developing these experiences to enhance your personal life and develop your path further. Assisting in this, the new Moon is given a boost from conjunction with the asteroid Hygeia in the 8th degree of Gemini. This emphasises the healing qualities and ongoing benefits of our personal work in the coming months, as the eclipses unwind their energetics, and this will benefit us all.
‘Living in your truth’ is the name of the game…..it may just be what the world needs most right now.
