The NEW MOON in Gemini brings us the gift of refining our perceptions. With Neptune the planet of illusions being a key player, we are reminded to see people and situations as they are and cut through the mirage of illusions. There is definite delusion in the air, so keen in to what is actually true. Remember actions speak louder than words, so go by actions and not by talk.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights form the most tuned in readers of the planetary bodies. First from the always inspiring Kelley Rosano:
“The Gemini New Moon is in challenging aspect with Neptune. Neptune, the planet of illusion and confusion is challenging both lights (the Sun and the Moon.) …Neptune is like looking through a kaleidoscope of beautiful illusions. You see what you want to see. The mirage is of your own making and desire…”
“…Where people run into trouble is when you believe that the fantasy is true. That is seeing what you want to see instead of embracing the truth. Neptune is famous for its big letdown in love. This is referred to as ‘love’s illusion’. The best strategy when navigating Neptune’s cold waters is stay awake.
“See people for who they are and not who you want them to be. This holds true in your investments. If something seems too good to be true it is. Neptune challenges can bring out the liars, thieves and betrayers. You know the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Creator is initiating you in these types of situations. This is to increase your discernment and self-mastery…:
“This is a dreamy New Moon filled with potentials and promises. Don’t go by promises. Use behavior as your guide. It is never what people promise. It is always what they do. It is never the talk. It is always the walk. You want to walk your talk. Make sure to be clear in your communication with other people. Be honest and sincere. Work on increasing your communication skills. Listen more and talk less.”
“…. Saturn (the master builder) is in harmonious energy flow with Jupiter (the master strategist.) In fact, they are forming a grand water trine with Chiron (the wounded healer.) This healing astrological event will be on all of June. This energy can heal you from the ongoing Cardinal Grand Square. That is requiring you to step up in your vibration and stand in your truth. You are being born again. Creator wants to heal you. Creator wants to empower you. What would you be doing if you were fearless?
“…There is way out from Neptune’s confusion by taking action. Be healthy. Do what is right for you. Use Mars as your sword of truth and cut the cords of illusion…”
“Venus enters Taurus just a few hours after the New Moon. She is thrilled to be home. This is your opportunity to use the Gemini New Moon and Venus in Taurus to align with your core values. When you line up with your core values, you are on path. You are in touch. You are in control of your life… When your actions and intentions are lined up with your core values, you create the life you truly desire. This will happen organically.
“…The Gemini New Moon message is…Increase your communication mastery by listening deeply to what is being said. And, what is not being said. Listen to your intuition. Your instincts will never fail you. The logical mind can be deceived. The eyes and ears can be fooled. They see what they want to see. They hear what they want to hear. However, your Inner Being cannot be fooled… Live your life from your authentic self, inside out. The power is in your hands.”

From astrologer Simone Butler from Mooncircles.com:
“The past few months have been challenging for most of us…many of us had a rude awakening in one form or another, and may now be starting to realize that certain things in our lives, no matter how worthy, are no longer workable.
“With Mars finally direct and the dust beginning to settle, the question becomes:’What do I want next?”
“…we’ll need to deal with our fears and fantasies and move slowly and intuitively, rather than striking out blindly in a new direction.
“The month of June is for dreaming the future, doing research and prep work, and asking for unseen help. Trickster Mercury is slowing down, preparing for its thrice-yearly retrograde from June 7 – July 1. But luckily the messenger planet spends most of that cycle in its own sign of Gemini, where it is strong. This helps us review the past and decide what’s worth reclaiming.”

From the wonderful Dipali Desai from her Celestial Space Astrology:
” The New Moon in Gemini occurs at 7 degrees on May 28th, 2014…During this phase, there may be tendency to want to escape or fall into illusion as the New Moon in Gemini makes a connection to Neptune in Pisces.
“It is possible to feel lost or confused which option to take or choice to make. If you keep over-analyzing with the mind alone you may not find the answer. Be sure not to assume or judge too quickly, gather the facts first and be objective.
“When you come across multiple choices or two choices and are at a cross-roads, rather than becoming scattered like leaves blowing in the wind….Quiet down and be still, connect with your Soul/Spirit and the Divine and ask for the answer. Which path becomes a bit more highlighted or stands out through gut feeling? You have your answer.
“There is potential for inspired thoughts and feelings during the New Moon in Gemini yet you have to take time to be in silence for that to guide you…
“Mars in Libra makes a easy flowing aspect to the New Moon in Gemini suggesting ‘an energized or extra stimulated’ mind or mental energy. Thus the nervous system may be over-worked or sensitive now. Being in nature or doing exercise which helps to shift stress or anxiety will be really helpful.”

From the insightful Divine Harmony:
“…this New Moon is square Neptune (almost exact)- bringing a confusing, illusory, deceptive energy into the mix. We want to start new things and we think we know what we want- but along comes neptune to throw up some neptune fog that is hard to see through.
“This can be lovely for inspiration, idealism, fantasy, creativity and spirituality (or anything we are trying to start related to those themes) but when it comes to being grounded and practical, this New Moon definitely is not. We need to watch out for delusion, deception, denial and avoidance– from ourselves and certainly from others!
“The other thing that adds to the confusion is the fact that the ruler of this lunation is Mercury in Gemini- who is currently transiting in his shadow, set to go retrograde on June 7th. Mercury is in slow-mode right now AND he is out of bounds- which means he resides beyond the boundary of the sun…out of bounds planets can be like rogue planets that are doing their own thing- and considering mercury is also known as the trickster, the tricks and illusions he can bring can be amplified right now.
“So what do we do with this New Moon? On the one hand we are driven to start something, embark on a new path- go somewhere! But at the same time we have something slowing us down, even putting us into reverse- forcing us to revisit areas of life that we thought we had figured out already.
“… The key is to know that if you are stopped mid-stream OR if you are back at the beginning- there is a reason for it. There is something you need to do- tie up lose ends, complete something, or redo it altogether. In the long run this will serve you, but in the next week or so you may feel like all it is doing is dragging you down.
“The key is to get some Higher Mind perspective- and the best way to do that is in meditation or the dream time. So take time out of your busy schedule to meditate, reflect, introspect and retreat. All signs can benefit from this but particularly the water signs- as they all have this new moon and much of mercury’s retrograde playing out in the water/Shadow houses of their chart.
“Another key point in the New Moon chart is the fact that Mercury is at the last degree of Gemini and he is in aspect to Venus at the last degree of Aries. Both bodies move into new signs in the next 24 hours (first Venus moves into Taurus, then Mercury moves into Cancer). The 29th degree is a very important degree- it is karmic and it speaks of culmination, completion and trying to really wrap things up and move on to new lessons.
“With the ruler of this New Moon in the 29th degree I get this sense of major karmic lessons being wrapped up- deep, entrenched ones we are truly done with and are ready to let go of. Yet this New Moon is not the typical raring to go New Moon- so we have to do a lot of reflection and introspection around just what it is we are wrapping up and letting go of.
“This karmic clearing work takes effort on our part- we have to work for it. Yet the possibilities right now of really letting some aspect of the past go- be it attitude, karmic contract, belief, etc…- is HUGE right now. it’s definitely something to work with consciously so you can make the most of it.
“… we have a lot of karmic stuff coming up to complete and release when it comes to significant relationships in our lives. The asteroid atlantis is parallel to both juno and the south node, and juno and the south node are also parallel. I am seeing HUGE karmic/past-live relationship stuff up for lots of people right now….this is heavy but also necessary- and major growth can Sourced once we have cleared the remnants of the past.
“Involved in this Saturn/Juno opposition is Asteroid Lilith and Dark Moon Lilith. Dark Moon is conjunct Juno and Asteroid Lilith is square to both Saturn, Juno and Dark Moon. a T-square formation between these potent placements brings in a lot of unprocessed anger and rage, as well as old partners of playing the victim and the disempowered one.
“The whole lesson of lilith energy is to not give away power and become a victim (asteroid lilith), or lord it over others and become a tyrant (dark moon)- but to stay centered within ourselves, grounding ourselves in our own deepest power and sense of Self. With juno involved with the Dark Goddess- confrontation with the Unconscious aspects of ourselves is possible right now. it’s not going to be easy stuff, or even fun- but it can be very cathartic and transformative!”
“…This is not a mild mannered lunar cycle we are entering into. So in the coming days and weeks- take time to tune into your heart and let that guide you. Things may not be what they seem– be we can only be deluded or deceived if we allow it! This is a great lunar cycle to take down the rose colored glasses- or the sack over our head- so that we can see what is really, truly presenting itself. Only from that place can we really implement change from the ground up.”

From Dana Gerhardt from Mooncircles.com:
“Sit quietly with whatever is true right now. Whether you’re happy, sad, harried, wounded, or somewhere in between, before you ride on the wings of Mercury toward something new, and you will, because that’s what we do in Gemini’s cycle, sanctify your experience of this New Moon with some quiet curiosity.
“Spend five or fifteen minutes to just be. Close your eyes. Listen to the sounds coming from the street beyond your door. Feel the air. Can you notice how it’s gently touching your skin? Tune into your body. Is there tightness anywhere? Numbness? Or are there pleasant sensations? Let your body communicate. It’s telling you exactly what’s going on in your life right now. Ah… how nice to be the one who is listening.”

Deeply listen, deeply ground to Source and hear the whispers that say no matter what you are going to be ok. Have courage, be true, be honest, see through the illusions and remain in integrity.
Blessings to all~
