5 MARCH 2017, GEMINI
Ever had that experience when you walk from one room to the next and suddenly stop and wonder what you were doing? Why were you about to head into the next room? So you retrace your steps until you remember, ‘Oh that’s right, I was about to…’ (make lunch, do the dishes, turn on the radio etc). This 1st Quarter Moon in Gemini has that kind of forgetfulness to it, squaring both Mercury and Neptune in Pisces. Gemini as a zodiac sign represents ‘two’ (the two twins) and Pisces as a zodiac sign also represents ‘two’ (two fish). The energies Gemini and Pisces are known for having two or more things going on simultaneously, so much so they might get internal crossed wires. At a high energy time like the week of this 1st quarter moon, we might become momentarily confused or zoned out about something we were about to do, which gives the other half to the self the chance to have its say by slipping in a few new ideas, doubts, emotions or wishes. You might find yourself changing your mind suddenly about something or someone, but then down the track changing your mind back, or perhaps never changing your mind back. Venus in Aries is Retro and in strong alignment to this Qtr Moon showing how life is encouraging us to stop, rethink, pause and reset to be sure we have centred the two sides to ourselves before making any significant moves, as everyone seems to have the jitters and time is needed for consideration and integration.
