30 May The week ahead: May 30th through June 5th:
Welcome to June, Lovelies! We have a new moon coming on Saturday the 4th in the sign of Gemini. Gemini’s are very talkative (they are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication) and LOVE receiving and giving out information (if you take their phones away, you might as well chop off their arm). Their minds (and mouths) go a million miles a minute and so does their social life, so good luck keeping up with these busy bodies. I would expect your calendar to be a bit insane this month, but especially this week leading up to the new moon. Be careful of being pulled in too many directions as well. It’s ok to say no this week, and I hope you do! The twins of the zodiac are sometimes known for showing two faces when dealing with them or being two personalities in one body, so watch out this week for double talk; from other people and yourself; and be very clear in your speech. When in doubt, ask for clarification. When I think of this sign, I think of excitement in all forms–they dig that big time, and this week looks to promise just that too. So what can you do to work with the energy of the new moon? Well, new moons are traditionally the time when you plant new seeds and start new things and Gemini’s live for all things new and exciting in terms of information, so I would suggest starting up something you’ve been thinking about doing but also teaches you something new. Start that business or new book. Build things. Try a new way of making jewelry or painting or push your body to new levels with whatever sport excites you. Work with your hands, which is the part of the body that Gemini rules. Most importantly, improve your communication skills right now and re-evaluate how much information you’re taking in and giving out.
Checklist to go by:
1.)Is it necessary?
2.)Is it true?
3.)Is it helpful?
If you can tick these off, you’re doing just fine. If not, now is the perfect time to improve upon your communication and social skills. Don’t delay! 🙂
Consider doing an invocation, prayer or mediation on the night of the 5th to help you break free from old habits or to help you get clear on your new way of living. Feel free to use this invocation or make up your own. I like to write the stuff I’m releasing on a piece of paper and burn it as I say the prayer above. It helps me to feel like I’m truly releasing what I no longer need.
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two or all three cards–pick what you’re drawn to). The stone you see in the picture above is epidote in prehnite.
