🌙New Moon in Gemini ♊️ 4 degrees
I'm a mum to twin toddlers. It's endlessly fascinating watching their personalities grow and shift. Just when I think I've got them figured out they'll switch and I have to adapt quick smart or be left in the dust.
Gemini is the sign of the twins. It's the sign of duality, effervescence, curiosity and the intellect. It can run on its nerves and juggle multiple projects like no bodies business.
Marilyn Monroe was born under this mutable air sign and was renowned for calling people at all hours of the day and night to talk things out and through. I'm speculating that it was to make sense of her world and those in it. Gemini is also the sign of conversation.
You may want to chat about certain fears or phobias that are bubbling up during this New Moon. Even though Gemini, in essence, is "light" in dynamics, there's some very strong Pluto energy floating about now. Pluto is boundaries, control and passion gosh darn it, or lack thereof. You may feel a like your mind and heart are in a tug of war.
Mars is whirring through this sign and on course for a tango with Saturn in the next few days. If a plan hits a road block or feels excruciatingly slow, try not to do your 'nana like a two year old. The drop and roll I call it. Instead work with Saturn's lock n load gifts to make it water tight. Sometimes a rethink or a brainstorm is just what the doctor ordered.
Above all, Gemini is the sign of youth. And I'm not talking about age here. It is mentally dexterous, interested and agile. It's is always open to new ideas. And that's something that will keep all of us forever young. Cause I wanna be...

Full Moon in Scorpio 20 degrees 🌝♏️
For as far back as I can remember, water has been a tonic for me. Whether it be a bath, a waterfall, lake or ocean, I’m addicted to the ritual of "washing the day away". It’s a place of solitude, pondering, gratitude and yeah, at times, my cranky place. I imagine it all leaving me and in my minds eye see it washed down the drain to be reabsorbed and transformed by the earth for another day. Big hippy that I am.
The ruler of this Moon, Mars, whipping through the sign of Gemini is urging us to get our thinking caps on and come up with a game plan of how to move things forward. He's squaring off to King Neptune, God of the Ocean, however, and may produce, lethargy, apathy or labouring under a misapprehension. A tad of a head fuq if you let it. Don’t. Even though our minds are running at warp speed, our bodies may be just needing to chill and float. Feel it out and go with the flow.
Pluto, another planet associated with Scorpio, is super active now and hooks up with both the Sun and Moon. Pluto pushes for the truth, even if you’ve gotta go through a mountain of shit to get there. It’ll bring that gunk up so it can be washed away. Purged. Kinda like a cosmic jet hose.
This bloody gorgeous Moon is great for probing the deeper questions of life. For meaning. She's sensual and stubborn and calls to you to release something thats been majorly stuck in your world. Scorpio is unflinching in the face of intensity and begs you to be real. Trust her, she can can handle it. And she knows all too well that you can too.
Me? Well, it’s my birthday, so I’m off to celebrate. And what better way to start than with a long soak and reflection on the year that was? To emerge cleaner, calmer and a bare canvas on which to write the next year. What more could a girl ask for?♥️

New Moon in Taurus 6 degrees🌙♉️
Whilst preparing for our epic journey, my husband & I took a good look around our place to see what we wanted to take into this next phase of our lives.
We coincidentally watched a doco called The Minimalists - awesome and inspiring, check it out- & BAM! that was it. A Herculean effort was launched into getting rid of practically everything we owned & the effects have been wonderful. Cathartic even. There comes a time when the stuff you own starts to own you. ( Although I did manage to ship 6 boxes of much loved books to the other side of the planet to welcome us to our new abode. Cut me some slack. I am a Taurus. )
This is the beauty & the contradiction of this sign. It's associated with finance, stuff & the finest things money can buy. But it is also enamoured by nature, delights in life's simplicities & revels in a beautiful meal, warm bath & a comfy bed. Not to mention someone glorious in it. Yum.
The ruler of this New Moon, Venus is still in recovery from her recent retrograde. She's finally moving forward but still smarting a tad from matters brought to light. Questions around vulnerability, love and values have bubbled up and for some, this wasn't an entirely pleasant experience.
Enter Saturn, standing still in the sky & in a staring match with Chiron & Venus. Who will blink first? Theme's of time, getting real & doing the hard yards may leave you worn out & touchy. Ouch factor galore but also brilliant for clearing out the dead wood & the bullshit. Stripping everything bare.
There's a super concentrated link between think/talk planet Mercury in retrograde & feisty Mars to boot. Don't go poking the bear. To quote Bruce Lee " Don't touch me. Or I'll touch you back".
Taurus energy can't stand to be rushed & loves to take its time. It's a sign of endurance. In celebration of the wisdom of time, I'll pass the mike to a centenarian, 101 years to be exact, who was asked to share the best life advice she could muster.
" Just be yourself & smile. It's so easy to be nice. When you're nice, people are nice. If they're not, walk away from them."
This is the K.I.S.S method par excellence and something to hold onto now. Slow down, breathe and keep it simple, sassies. Mwah. 💋

Full Moon in Libra 🌝♎️
Have you been wanting to break free of a pattern or routine that has gone on for way too long? One that doesn’t serve you and clips your wings? Has life felt stuck or relations static? Well take a look see at what the universe has conjured up for you…
This Full Moon has change written all over it. It’s here to help you map out a new path and to take you into unchartered territory. Sure, the Moon aspects transformational Pluto which may bring up deep seated blocks or even fears about your right to embark on a fantastic voyage, whether that journey be inner or outer. But it is part of such a dynamic configuration that it practically refuses to be ignored. For one, King Jupiter, the planet that amps up whatever it touches, sits alongside this Moon, calling us to have a little faith in what our heart truly desires. Jupiter is the closest to earth than it has been for a year so the themes of expansion, enterprise and optimism echo throughout the skies. Big.
The Sun aligns with change maker Uranus and ball breaker Eris. This duo are renowned for leaving the past in the dust and calling to light what needs to be driven the hell out of town. The Spirit of the rebel is alive and kicking here. Not all of this restlessness will be coming from you either. The Libra element speaks to a need to keep the peace though. Manners are important. We may not be able to control everything that happens around us but we can control how we react. Ultimately, whatever bolts from the blue occur now will give you more confidence to take your rightful place in the drivers seat, not merely as a passenger. Take the reigns in both hands. You know you can.
The ruler of this Moon, Venus, is still in retrograde and links with healer Chiron. Yes, vulnerability may be a factor during this time, and yes, we may have to wait until she finally moves forward after April 15 and potentially well into May to get a true indication of our destination, but by being open to living and loving in a different way and expressing our uniqueness we can break out of a rut that has plagued us for what may have seemed like for-eh-vah.
Look up and let the light of this moon illuminate your path forward. Dream big, love bigger and hitch your wagon to a star. Om Tada, or a harmonious journey to you. ✨
