Just a couple of days after the start of the new Sun-Mars cycle in Gemini do we experience a New Moon in this sign, whose ruler Mercury is traveling in direct motion again. Thus, for the next two years will we be intent on enacting personal plans for our social life and persona by initiating connections and communications, becoming engaged with our environment and close surroundings and adapting our life-style and activities toward this purpose. Things have begun to move forward and as long-term strategies, creative options and new trends come together, we have a chance to express our personal role if we take advantage of diverse opportunities for self-assertion. Therefore, it is critical that we validate and acknowledge our needs and desires and adjust our priorities accordingly in order to be able to fulfill those longings, dreams or ideals we’ve been imagining about since the last winter. This New Moon is in square aspect to the eclipse in March and as such represents a turning point. In the process of ‘Archetypalization, the power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer’ (Sabian Symbol for the Pisces NM/Solar Eclipse), we are at the stage now where ‘our game’ is coming down to the essentials.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 25:07 Gem states:
“Frost-covered trees against winter skies. Keynote: The revelation of archetypal form and essential rhythm of existence – ESSENTIALIZATION.”

Tarot card of the day is the “10 of Cups”, suggesting that we’re calling a truce and restoring harmony where it is needed. We’re working for peace and reaffirming our commitment to bonds. Thus, we create an atmosphere where we can relax, while reducing stress and tensions, and consequently have a chance to experience serenity and contentment. Generally, we can be more at ease. This card is reflective of our personal value system and of what we believe will bring us the ultimate fulfillment and happiness in life.
