It’s like how right before a King Tide, the water recedes way out, leaving rank seaweed draped over glistening skeletons and pre-plundered treasure chests.
So this New Moon in Gemini is gorgeous. clean, hot-fresh energy…these Dark Moon days before it are extra grotty.
The Moon is dark in Taurus so food cravings are fantastically naff. Why DOES the Dark Moon so often equate with super-naff food-emo-cravings and lower thoughts? I don’t know. But it does.
Subliminal Awareness is also high so maybe it’s like low thoughts float up to the surface along with the haute insights?
It’s the done thing to tell everyone to go get tranquil with the Moonwane but the underlying throb of Jupiter-Uranus in Aries and an Eclipse building means we ain’t relaxing. We are all pumped. Still, ancient Dark Moon wisdom – time-honoured and all – says to pace thyself at this time and chuck merde out.
Even if you are working your way through a loaf of bread and a vat of white wine, use the sugar high to scrawl stuff out in your journal or unclutter – not aimless google stalking or boring replays of some poignant but actually really naff “issue.”
This is not only a Dark Moon in the Shadow of an Eclipse – it’s the end days of this round of Saturn in Virgo. So the Mutable signs are processing a LOT of events ongoing since late 2007, the Cardinals are prepping for their Zap Zone and Fixed Signs…they’re actually pretty cool right now.
Find a Leo to lean on! A Taurus to provide. Scorpio for those deeper, harder to articulate needs. Aquarius? They’re a bit Neptune addled at the mo.
