It is Memorial Weekend and the week that follows carries with it the promise of a new moon at 14º Gemini 53′ on Friday June 4. New Moons are the beginning of the planting cycles for crops and ideas. This is aligned with cautious Saturn in mid degrees of Sagittarius and still getting that race horse push from Jupiter. Frustration runs rampant as loose ends that get tied open the door to more loose ends. Anxiousness is in the wind. With lots of moveable energies (mutable signs like Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces) running in transit at the same time, it is hard to settle down, sleep, rest peacefully. There are five out of ten planetary bodies in mutable signs right now – the Sun, Moon, Saturn, Mars, Neptune, Venus. That’s a lot of mental energy flying around. Meditation helps, long walks in fresh air help process these energies since many of them are in air and fire. That and closing down your technology a few hours before sleep really does help.
This is a good practice during the month of June (particularly since the next few weeks are 90-days after the March eclipses, bringing the challenging issues of March to a head). September, December and March enjoy that same exercise, too. Do we really need to keep the cell phones on at night, do we really need to keep referring to our cells every few minutes when visiting with a live body across the table from us? Think about it. This practice does much for your psyche, health and wellbeing.
Mutable energy is fractious. It brings in lots of ideas, thoughts, but gosh or gosh, where to start and how to get organized is not part of the equation. A piece of paper and/or an immediately available place where you write down those ideas flying through conversation is another great practice during this time. Just remember where you put them!
