Explore Your Dreams: Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse 2012

by Cathy Pagano May 18, 2012 06:33 PM EST

     What does this weekend's Gemini solar eclipse have in store for us?  A solar eclipse is a special new Moon, when the Sun and Moon and Earth line up on the same plane in space.  This line-up disrupts the ‘usual’ energy, dissolving old complexes/behavior patterns and allowing new archetypal energies to emerge from the unconscious (the light of the Sun/consciousness is blocked). 

     This new Moon is close to the south node of the Moon, which is where our comfort no longer serves us and points to what we have to release.   In Gemini, the energy that needs releasing is the way our culture has trained us to think about things.  The mystic poet Hafiz of Shiraz speaks to this: “Now is the time to understand that all your ideas of right and wrong were just a child's training wheels, to be laid aside when you finally live with veracity and love.”  The US President just came out of the closet in support of gay marriage – a new perspective on partnerships that is sorely needed (Saturn in Libra is helping this along).  If we can release our old prejudices (which are really just ingrained catagories), we can be renewed through our beliefs.  If we really believe in equality, then everyone must be seen as equal.


      With the new Moon on the south node in Gemini, our old perceptions, thought patterns and knowledge can dissipate , leaving us open to perceive, think and know in new ways.  These old habits of mind no longer reflect the new realities of life, and so they no longer serve life.  Despite any uncomfortable feelings, release these old concepts, and try to see the world with a compassionate heart. “Now is the time for the world to know that every thought and action is sacred.”  I think we’re all ready for that, don’t you?  So plant a new seed of tolerance and open-mindedness, of possibilities and mysteries still unknown.

    The sign of Gemini relates to the Mind, highly curious and hungry for knowledge, and how we use the Mind to think, gather knowledge and communicate.  The sign of the Twins, one mortal and one immortal, implies that there are many ways to understand life, from common sense to the most complex mathematics.  This eclipse can do away with the patriarchal misconception that only factual knowledge is ‘real’.  Be open to your own unique way of learning, see what you discover and when necessary, share it.

Until next time,

Sweet Dreams
