Yesterday I was telling my man that it seems like the Mockingbirds that live in our garden want our attention. Their repertoire has catchy hooks and tempo changes that makes them the pop stars of the avian scene. Serendipitously, the oracular message from the Sabian Symbols for this New Moon, at Gemini 29 is The First Mockingbird Of Spring Sings From The Tree Top.
Lynda Hill, the Australian astrologer that has explored Sabian Symbols (channeled meanings for Zodiac degrees) in depth sees this Gemini New Moon as all about finding your voice.
Hill writes, "The Sabian Symbol is one of using, or finding, ones voice. What is it that you want to say? What announcements do you have to make? What revolutions do you have to reveal? What have you been wanting to speak or write about, but have been reticent (or afraid) to lift up your voice? It seems that now is the time to find that voice; to strike those chords and get the message out. "
Over the weekend, I took part in a play festival as one of six playwrights. What fascinated me, is the similar themes, even the same phrases, that showed up in the pieces. Gemini is a sign with antennae for reading minds. One aspect at the New moon is traveling Jupiter (Gemini) in a square to boundless Neptune (Pisces). It's curious how we go fishing in the bigger sea, picking up or passing on impressions. Someone's chatter or comment online follows us into dreams, or with imaginative work, for example.
That's why especially in the fluid and changeable void of a Gemini New Moon, it's worth strategically placing yourself in atmospheres that stimulate all your faculties (in a good way). Be where you'll be picking up the brightest, most inspired messages. That might be in silence, among the birds (that'll be me today). Or with music or a friend that takes you places in the mind and imagination. If your setting is noisy, sneak some moments to escape the norm, to rest or change your tune.
Where does 28-29 Gemini fall in your birth chart? This area is ripe for things to fall into place. Also, look at Gemini-Pisces (degrees 1 to 3) as portals for a great escape. Some momentum happens, when matrices of thinking or belief dissolve, and a way is cleared.
