New Moon in Gemini: Chasing Chickens

New Moon in Gemini: Chasing Chickens

This new moon in Gemini, a chick hatches out of its shell and starts to peep (June 3, 5:01 am CDT)! Gemini, a sign that embodies duality, tends toward multiplicity. One chick hatches and soon follows another and another. Before too long, a brood of chicks is running around. The chasing of chickens begins! Fun and exhilarating at first, chickens run in opposite directions all over the place as it becomes trickier to keep track of them all!

A craving for variety inspires dabbling in multiple pursuits at once. Opportunities make themselves known as spring inches closer to summer, some take root while others blow away like dandelion fluff in the breeze. Nets are cast wide this month, catching social butterflies to begin mingling. The gift of gab and gossip are enhanced. Trickery and evasiveness may cloud circumstances.

Gemini is known for cleverness and communication. While connecting with others and sharing ideas, inspiration may be found in the world of the arts. A work-worshipping paradigm begs for balance as the new moon suggests finding wealth in songs, books, music, poetry, theatre — any form of creative expression.

Mars joins north node in Cancer June 12, defending the oppressed and fighting against the backsliding our country has witnessed. A stop-go dynamic faces off with old structures collapsing as rebuilding takes place. More to come on this later, as we prepare for eclipse season this July.

To help juggle multiple projects, try some of the Eye of Horus’ Fatigue Remedy aromatherapy oil. This essential oil blend is designed to help bring a lightness to your day and increase your energy to get things done. To work your social butterfly mojo, consider carrying with you a lapis gemstone. This noble stone helps project your desires and enhances communication with others by helping project your best self. To retain balance with a stop-go dynamic, light one of Coventry Creations’ Inner Balance candles. This candle helps you keep in the center of opposite dynamics and maintain a sense of purpose and stability.

Full Moon in Scorpio:  Holding Your Ground

Full Moon in Scorpio:  Holding Your Ground

The moon brims full May 18 (4:11 pm, CDT) near the last degree of Scorpio. Passionate intensity reaches peak pitch! Maintain the garden — be it actual plants and flowers or future goals — to see it flourish. What needs tending to and nurturing so it may remain vibrant?  An all or nothing approach can be harnessed and put to use, though stubbornness and inflexibility might show up.  Intensity of commitment is at hand, locking into place what is working well.  But black and white thinking can indicate a separation if something isn’t meeting the rigidity of all or nothing standards.  Possessiveness may show up similar to the eternal grips of a snapping turtle’s jaws, not letting go when feeling threatened.

The desire to stop and smell the roses feels more like a leisurely stroll than a sprint to the finish line. Taurus isn’t to be rushed.  Immersing in the five senses can be luxurious.  Yet the need to be comfortable and cozy aids in remaining stagnant and stuck, digging heels in and not moving!

Economics, relationships to money, how land is owned and valued get a fresh perspective this full moon.  Themes of ownership over our sexuality and our bodies are highlighted.  The time is fertile for transforming schemes once just a twinkle in the eye into what we can feel, hear, taste, touch, see and measure.

To get in touch with the sacredness of our bodies, try some of Eye of Horus’ Aphrodisiac essential oil blend. This passionate blend is both stimulating and luxurious. To stand your ground in situations worth fighting for, carry a piece of tourmalinated quartz. This stone helps bring us clarity to see situations for what they are and also helps to strengthen and balance us for challenges that lie ahead. To let go of unnecessary grudges, consider burning one of Coventry Creations’ Needed Changes candle. This candle is designed specifically to help banish anything from our lives that is keeping us stuck or held down.
