With the sun gaining ground in Virgo, our moon whirls into Gemini … and shortly thereafter forms this lunar cycle’s last quarter square. For the next two days we cross back over the cosmos that holds our intentions from the Grand Mutable Cross of the Gemini New Moon on June 4, 2016.
At the time of the square the cross is still within orb, Saturn conjunct Mars are in direct opposition to the moon in Sagittarius, Neptune is retrograding in Pisces … only this time around, the sun joins Jupiter in Virgo and Jupiter although in Virgo, is out of range. We also have Mercury and Venus conjunct Jupiter in the later degrees of Virgo, which has the skies heavy on Virgo energy. With all of this mutability activated … things are bound to shift and the Reorientation Phase adds a favorable dynamic.
This phase is commonly referred to as the ‘crisis of consciousness’, where you recognize how far you have, or have not, come, and wonder … what needs to change to make the difference? AND are challenged with taking the actions necessary to bridge the gap.
The sun is the source of energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the mutable earth of Virgo, we take life a bit more seriously and seek to improve. There is a good capacity for rational analysis – the ability to pull something apart into its component pieces, see how they fit or work, and then put them back together again, most often in a more refined or improved version.
The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level.
Collectively, the subconscious experience of Gemini energy has us being more social. We become restless, want to keep things light/merry, and communications flow. We defuse situations with humor. Our mental faculties begin buzzing and we are dancing with possibilities.
As an individual both energies are focused through the imprint made at our birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign. The resonance of that energy is determined by our beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not.
These energetic influences apply to both the sun (conscious mind) and the moon (unconscious perception) for the next two days. They shape our experience and give us access to bringing our energetic being into alignment with a higher state. They reveal our beliefs through what is playing out in our lives. Giving us an opportunity to be responsible for, and intentionally transform, them through the activity of each phase.
Currently, we are reorientating. We are identifying all that has arisen to take us out of our comfort zone since the Leo New Moon on August 2, 2016 and the intentions initiated at the Grand Mutable Cross at the Gemini New Moon on June 4th, 2016 and the last Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 12, 2015. These intentions will show up in areas of life the house(s) Leo/Virgo/Gemini rule in your birthprint, expressed through the element of the moon (air = mentally), and fueled further with the energy of any planets and the aspects activated in that space at the time of your birth.
During this Reorientating Moon Phase, we review what is manifesting, or not. We step outside of our consciousness and note where our view and/or experience of life has transformed. We take note of what needs to change to have our reality become aligned with our intentions.
Theses next ~2 days are when the tangible results have the potential to manifest! A time where we simultaneously have the opportunity to reap what we’ve sown and be responsible for the bounty it may, or may not, be. The reaping of anything requires action and these days are the time to invest in … or come home empty handed. An opportunity to reach, to be bold, to do what you know you have to … to bring your intentions to life.
