Gemini New Moon Tarot Reading, May 25th, 2017

This New Moon in Gemini, while the Sun is also cruising through the sector of Gemini in the sky, is a great time of month to lighten up with Air energy. Gemini loves a good laugh, seeing the comical side of life, and breezing through tough situations with flow and inspired solutions. Gemini energy sparks creative thoughts. You may find yourself wanting to learn and experience new things. Gemini also influences communication and technology so this is a great time of the year to brainstorm about your goals in these areas. How and what do you want to share with your community and social network? What is your relationship to technology and do you need to change or improve it in some way? Spend some time out in the fresh air while the New Moon is in Gemini, and all month long under the Gemini Sun, in order to infuse yourself with spring breezes and the winds of change.

Here is what the tarot would like to share with us at this New Moon intention setting time:

Linestrider Tarot: 7 of Wands reversed, 10 of Wands reversed, 9 of Cups reversed

What are you ready to learn, experience, and create this moon cycle?-
VII of Wands reversed
You are ready learn how to put your internal battles to rest. There are a million different interests, passions, ideas, and priorities constantly struggling for top spot in your consciousness. It quite simply can’t all get done and that’s okay. It shouldn’t make you feel bad about yourself or guilty for not doing it all. Who are you competing against for the most things done in a life anyway? How can you count that? How do you decide whether or not something was even worthwhile? Maybe the point of life isn’t how much you get done, but how present you are when you’re doing whatever it is that you get done. There is no way of knowing the point of life, so you might as well stress less and stop competing against others and especially yourself in the Cult of Busy, Busy, Busy Makes Me Important. Create more space with this Gemini New Moon. Create more Air, create more fun, create more ease, create more laughter. What feels better at the end of the day: an exhausted mind with a massive To Do list all crossed off, or a belly laugh on the back porch sharing beverages with friends? It’s time to redefine your idea of “winning”.

How can you more effectively communicate, network, and share your ideas?-
Ten of Wands reversed
It’s really is time to narrow your focus and stop trying to do too many things at once. This is an echo of the card before, huh? Well, it’s no secret that we’re all trying to do too much and it’s making us wicked tired and grumpy. Gemini brings up this energy since no one loves getting work done and also having all the fun more than The Twins. It’s pretty frenetic energy! But it’s unsustainable and harmful to your inner calm and sense of spiritual well-being. If the point is to get everything done that we want to do, that list will never end and we’ll never reach our goal. How could you possibly do everything that you set out to do with your life? When have you ever reached a goal and not set another goal farther out? It’s human nature, but it’s not particularly joyful. If your goals are: to have a million Instagram, Twitter, and FB followers, to have great friends, family, and community you do meaningful and fun things with all the time, and to write a book, blog, album, TED talk, etc., ummmm… that’s too much. Chill out! Narrow your focus, set limits, honor your boundaries, and make sure you are present.

How can you foster a positive relationship and productive with technology?-
Nine of Cups reversed
It’s important to realize that technology cannot solve all your problems. It cannot be perfect. It cannot be infallible. It cannot wave a magic wand and do everything for you. Of course, all these realizations may be why people can get so disenchanted with technology. If you subscribe to my newsletter, you read my rant about how Instagram is no longer instant and so- grrrrrrrrrr! I guess the way to a positive relationship with technology is to not get emotional about it, since it certainly isn’t going to get emotional about you. Why not channel that Air energy of Gemini and treat technology with a rational and logical approach. What is the point of Instagram?- to make it’s owners money. There’s an internal wish that technology should fulfill your desires, but it is something created by someone else who ultimately wants to fill their own desires first. Now, who deserves to have their desires fulfilled? Why should it be you?

Anywho, those are my musings from the tarot for the Gemini New Moon. I hope you enjoyed them and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter so you will always have these fun readings in your inbox every 4 weeks. Woohoo!

Where do I need more fire energy in my life to spark new inspiration and creativity?- The Hierophant
You need more fire energy in your work, in your society, in your belief system, in your personal world structure.  The Hierophant is not a fiery guy, but he is a persistent, steady, wise and hard-working guy.  He is inspired by truth, by faith, and by his community. He asks you to bring fire energy into your daily routine.  If you are not normally a super energetic or spontaneous person, this type of fire energy will be right up your alley.  Instead of jumping in, you can plan it out.  You can systematically say,  “I need more passion and soul in this area of my life.  This is how I’m going to do it.”  You will have creative insights and more drive than usual to pinpoint those areas, make those changes, and bring about change.  If you are normally quite fiery, The Hierophant asks you to direct that fire, to streamline it into huge achievement.  If you’re always be tugged by the divine muses to create, now is your chance to channel those nudges of creativity into a full roaring fire of productivity.  Work with Hierophant energy to create that channel, to make systems and processes for bringing your inspiration into form.  This is a wonderful time for hard-working accomplishments.

What can I do or create to better express my personality and individuality?- The Hanged Man rx
You need to stop waiting around for the perfect moment and act now.  You need to stop putting other people’s needs first and get your oxygen mask before assisting your neighbor.  There is a certain honor to altruistic behaviors, but not when you take it to the extreme of martyrdom, especially when no one even asked you for help in the first place.  Do you even know what you want?  How do you want to live? What do you want to create?  What is your soul person?  The Hanged Man asks you to take a look at those questions with fresh perspective, new angles, a spotlight of hope and wonder.  Don’t hesitate, don’t delay, now is the time.  You can dig deep into your psyche and explore your soul.  You can shine a light on yourself and recognize who you are.  You can figure out how you are hiding or repressing your individuality and personality.  You can decide not to continue those practices of self-denial and martyrdom.  You are the most important person in your life.  There is no “your life” without you, so start treating yourself as #1.

IX of Cups           Shadowscapes tarot

How can I have more fun and glowing active energy in my life?- IX of Cups
Open up your heart!  The IX of Cups wants you to know that fun and games are good for you.  Having fun soothes the weary spirit.  It heals the wounded heart.  When you let fire energy and inspiration glow inside of you, you also allow for feelings of happiness and joy to be acceptable.  You do not have to be a miserable person.  You are not obligated to be negative, or trapped, or hate the things you are doing. You can take a fresh approach.  You can say that you are lucky, that you are blessed, and that you love the life you’re living.  You can be happy to be alive.  You don’t have to be jaded to fit in.  You don’t have to worry about seeming like a nut or a superficial person for not being bogged down by the sadness and weight of the world.  If we each enjoyed ourselves a little more, brought more happiness and love into the world, and smiled at one another, perhaps the burdens of the world would start to dissipate.  Perhaps we are perpetuating sorrow by clinging to it when it is better to focus on love than to focus on anything else at all.
