New Moon in Gemini
The May 22nd New Moon at 02°06′ Gemini in close aspect to Mars and Saturn augurs a period leading up to the June 5th Lunar Eclipse where focusing intent and concentrating one’s energies for the purpose of achieving a clear set of realistic outcomes or goal will likely dominate. This combination also bodes a period where mastering emotions, curbing one’s impulses, directing anger into constructive activities, and sharpening one’s personal power and self-mastery will be key.
The New Moon also augurs a period in which one will tend to seesaw between confidence, faith, vision and high aspirations, and caution, concern, realism, or fear. For one cannot rely on good luck or grace alone and will need to accept the need for hard work and perseverance to achieve a successful outcome.
The fixed star Alcyone at 00°15′ Gemini conjuncts the May 22nd New Moon. The star Alcyone (Eta Tauri) is a 2.9 magnitude greenish yellow star and the brightest in the Pleiades star cluster in the Constellation of Taurus. According to traditional sources, the name Alcyone comes the mythological daughter of Atlas, Alcyone. She is the Central One or Hen of the Pleiades sisters who attracted the attention of Poseidon and bore him several children.
Based on traditional sources, the fixed star Alcyone combined with Saturn provides ambition and the aspiration to achieve eminence, resulting in advancement with honor and glory. Alcyone combined with Saturn also augurs enhancement of mystical abilities and clairvoyant visions. Therefore, this New Moon period augurs a period clarifying for clarifying intentions to discover an inner blueprint for success that is intuitively in alignment with one’s future. It also augurs a period of getting out of an oppressive or restrictive situation, reclaiming self-determination and opening to new opportunities.
