The animal kingdom (which includes us humans) is a perfect example to illustrate how femininity and sensitiveness are not at all synonyms of weakness: few creatures are as fierce and dangerous as mothers protecting their offspring.
Like Gemini, the sign she lands in (4°46), the New Moon that arrives on May 25, at 7:44 PM UTC has two faces: the youthful smirk of the Twins, and the gorgon-like gaze of Lilith, the uninvited guest to this otherwise solitary, unaspected Sun/Moon rendezvous. Outcast extraordinaire Black Moon Lilith has been transiting Sagittarius since February, and she will challenge this cerebral, witty New Moon with a confrontational opposition. The mercurial, intellectual flair of Gemini acquires a sharp, argumentative edge, courtesy of Lilith’s primeval indignation. Harnessing this mix of energies conscientiously is the key that will allow us to walk through the cosmic portal of this lunation.
Most of us (if not all) are familiar with the adage “as above, so below” – which is likely as ancient as human knowledge itself.
The latin formula “Quod est inferius est sicut quod est superius / et quod est superius est sicut quod est inferius / ad perpetranda miracula rei unius” was originally recorded in the Tabula Smaragdina (Emerald Tablet), a fragment of the Hermetic Corpus; the latter is a series of sacred texts attributed by the enigmatic, fascinating figure of Hermes Trismegistus.
It all starts from the Heart. Our Heart.
The knowledge we can attain. The power to visualize what we aim to manifest. The unfeigned self-Love that spills over, and the Love we can give to the world, out of that overflow. Honesty. Motivation. Wisdom. Being.
Our hearts alone can guide us home to ourselves. When we find our center, everything else vibrates in harmony. It’s a journey most of us are familiar with, but we might have lost our sense of direction.
Mercury’s backspins through Earth signs have a way of making us feel stuck, unable to decide, to move on, clogged in our mental debris. Mercury’s latest Rx cycle in the sign of Taurus has spawned its fair share of mental ruminations of thoughts, ideas and decision through the meanders and compartments of the mind – indeed, a metaphorical version of the laborious digestive system of the bull.
