The full moon in Gemini highlights communication, thought processes, mental activity, study and learning.Gemini thrives on information while the opposite sign Sagittarius tends to make meaning out of data according to its beliefs and philosophy.
The Moon opposite the Sun at this full moon encourages us to check our gut feel, instincts and worldview with facts, figures and data.The truth of a situation may be revealed once the facts come to light and help move us towards a fresh perspective and higher level of perception.
Gemini is the sign of the twins and symbolises duality and choices.Mars, the planet of action and assertion, is exactly conjunct (next to) the Moon and plays a key role in this new moon’s energy.Mars is enjoying a lengthy retrograde in Gemini, helping us to reflect our decision making and past choices.We may find ourselves going back over our past decisions and choices and the actions we have taken.Or we may have been stuck or sitting on the fence.
The influence of Mars at the full moon, combined with fresh or new information coming to light, enables us to spring forward into action towards a clarified vision.

Retrograde motion is an opportunity to reflect, review, recharge and reshape. What and where can we rethink, renovate and reenergise?

The concept of retrograde in astrology refers to an optical illusion from the perspective of the Earth. Retrograde motion is an apparent change in the movement of a planet through the sky because of its position and speed of movement around the Sun relative to the Earth. Planets do not physically start moving backwards in their orbit but just appear to do so from our point of view on Earth. Imagine two trains are leaving a station at the same time. If you are on the faster one, the one beside you appears to be going backwards; even though they …Continue reading →
Mercury retrograde is often accompanied by superstition and anxiety about all sorts of things going awry. Mercury retrogrades about three times each year for approximately three weeks, so how can we learn to flow with this energy and use these periods constructively.

April brings big shifts; symbolised by four planets changing direction. Both Jupiter and Venus are currently in retrograde motion which means that they appear to move backwards through the zodiac from the perspective of the Earth.

Saturn relates to form, structure and groundwork and this …Continue reading →
