In this 2016 Cancer New Moon Chart the Sun and Moon are in opposition to ole’ mighty Pluto. Well, there’s about a 4-degree orb in the opposition with the Sun Moon at 13 Cancer and Pluto at 17 Capricorn but that’s close enough to get folks into a tissy. Let’s take a look at what astrologer, April Elliott Kent, wrote in the final line of her recent newsletter (which I highly recommend you subscribe to here):
“This is a pretty intense New Moon, in opposition to Pluto, an intractable combination that lends itself to passionate conflict. Throw an awakened Mars in Scorpio into the mix, and... well, let's just see if we can prevent each other from getting into too much trouble.”
-April Elliott Kent

I just find this Gemini New Moon interesting! So, I don’t have The Good, The Bad and The Interesting to present for this Gemini New Moon. In this Moon chart we have a party of planets all lined up in the Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. In English, this means we are moving into a new season and changes are coming. Changes are always coming you might say…well what the astrology offers us is deeper insights to what archetypes are involved. Our inner willpower, storyteller, lover, adventurer, and judge are all configured by squares and oppositions in mutable signs, which strive to see both sides to every story. There’s going to be a lot of back and forth. With this being the seed intent of the New Moon we are not on solid ground. Pushing our way forward will be less productive than looking at both sides of a situation and taking small steps from there. Adaptability is key. This isn’t the configuration for the long-term planner. Why? Once you take your initial step within your plan two new better ideas will come up or another unknown essential fact will reveal itself. This is the problem solver's month. We may not be on solid ground but if you treat this lunar month like a puzzle that needs to be playfully fiddled with then at least you’ll remain in good spirits. For this cycle, everyone stands to be challenged in their ability to adapt to change. Of course peeps more invested in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces energy tend to be more comfortable with this type of challenge but they too will need bring their A-Game to the month in order to set an example for everyone else.
For this article, I’m exploring this Mutable Grand-Cross, Gemini New Moon via a 3-card New Moon tarot spread I designed specifically for the occasion. Below, I give details on what to expect from this Gemini Moon cycle, how to get the most out of the energy present, where it’s leading us, and lastly journal prompts to help you make the most of the first four lunar phases.
