Gemini New Moon: Walk and Don’t Look Back

JamesBondBeach3 (1)

This image looks very similar to the snapshots I took back in 1990 when I went to Runaway Bay Jamaica.

My Jamaican adventure is a great entre into how to do this New Moon at 25 degrees Gemini. With Mars at 24 degrees Gemini closely conjunct and Mercury prancing direct once more, life has a spring back in its collective step.

Frankly I have become weary of writing astrology event articles since I seem so out of synch with the rhythms, floating in my own personal universe. But this one is different.

The lunation is very close to my own Gemini moon at 21 degrees Gemini and it hits my 5th house cusp. Coincidentally my progressed moon just came home to its original position, heralding a lunar return! I do feel more alive today, albeit sleepy (staying up very late playing computer games can do that!) Cards, computer games, photography, crossword puzzles, Facebook, twitter, reading, writing, blogging, run on sentences ~ all very Gemini.

Moon in Gemini is not about feeling emotions. It enjoys conversations about feelings! However I am learning to bridge the disconnect between heart and mind. My moon in the 4th house loves the soulful atmosphere but still grabs onto logic and reason. But where does that leave us?

But I digress, very Gemini indeed..

Musical inspiration often arrives first for blog ideas. The song Walk and Don’t Look Back popped into my head a week or so ago and I was going to use it for some other topic. But I am glad I saved it because it does a great job highlighting Sun Moon Mars in Gemini sextiling Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo. Stay tuned, I explain later in the post. Chiron is squaring the Gemini stellium at 21 Pisces, but I say, don’t let him drag you down. If you have cleared out enough sludge this past year or two, Chiron will not be riding shotgun on your joyride.

I had dreamed of Jamaica for years and knew I had to visit. As often as I had traveled with my family to the Caribbean, we never chose this magical place where reggae, rum, and spicy cuisine form a holy trinity of passion, freedom, and relaxation. I loved Bob Marley and I also longed for white beaches and turquoise waters. I decided to travel alone as I needed to escape from some romantic drama. While I was afraid of traveling all by myself, I was determined to treat myself to a long deserved vacation. I found the experience initially to be filled with loneliness and sadness. What have I gotten myself into? Did I make a huge , expensive, mistake?  I had no place to hide so I felt my emotions and journaled about them. I was going to commit to this adventure. Very quickly the situation changed. I made a new Italian friend who spoke excellent English. Her traveling partner had to abruptly change plans, so she was also vacationing by herself in Jamaica. We became fast friends and spent most of the trip together. While our personalities were very different, we complemented one another and made lemons out of lemonade.

Less than one year later, I was boarding a plane alone to Milan Italy. My friend invited me to stay with her in Italy for a couple of weeks. I visited Milan, Rome, Venice, Lugano, Zurich, Bergamo, Pompeii, Naples, and much more. We did this all in 2 weeks. How did this happen? I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life. This was so much more than a vacation as I was invited into the life of an average Italian, staying in her home, meeting her friends and family, eating home cooked food, shopping at local markets, swimming in a city pool, and so much more. I got a peek inside the life of my Italian ancestors in present time.  Did I forget to mention I would also fall asleep at night dreaming about seeing Europe? How in the world did my trip to Jamaica lead me all the way to Italy and Switzerland? The following year she came to stay with me in the US. One decision led to two transatlantic trips over the course of 2 years. Being bold, communicating about emotions, and following your dreams can be very indicative of this lunation parried with 2 sextiles from Jupiter and Uranus. Taking a leap and staying open allowed me to make a unique connection and the universe took notice.

In my case, my natal Venus at 19 Sag is being activated and has formed a grand fire trine. This would be a great time for a vacation! While I do not have the resources to travel at the moment, I am almost ready to leave my sanctuary and have some fun. I hope you will do the same. Look to where 19 to 26 degrees of Aries, Gemini, and Leo are in your chart to figure out how to best create your celebration. Much love to Gem Moon blog sisters Jamie, Debra, Renate, and Amanda. I am so blessed to be in such great company.

This old Peter Tosh classic demands you leave the past behind and move forward, full steam ahead. I hope it inspires you to feel, sing, dance, and dream big!

  4. Here’s to walking forward Linda full steam ahead.. It sounds as if you had a wonderful time in Europe also.. And I can see no reason why you can not manifest such dreams into reality again..
    Love and Blessings my friend

    Hearing about your travels makes me wish I was going somewhere! Italy would be lovely. I’d go back in a heart beat.
    Your photos remind me of a trip I took to Mexico alone back in 1988. Something similar must have been triggering my chart. 🙂 I toured the pyramids and met some great people. I am still in touch with one of them after all these years. And it was through another that I was able to finally visit southern California- a woman I met at Chichen Itza invited me to stay at her place in Santa Monica after our conversation while sharing a bus ride back to the hotel. I find the idea of traveling alone now a bit more challenging, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it! 😉
    “Moon in Gemini is not about feeling emotions. It enjoys conversations about feelings!” – love that ❤
    Lastly, thank you for the mention. You are so sweet.

    1. Hi Renate,
      I enjoy hearing about how our adventures may parallel. I do not remember what transits triggered my travel period off hand. I prefer not to travel alone but glad I left my comfort zone and let life flow for me. The photos I used are from wikipedia but the first image really looks like the part of Jamaica that I visited. I still have the actual images ( some from an instant camera). While I love photography, technology often confuses me ( Merc Neptune) so I avoid anything remotely complicated. I like to think I have a “good eye” in terms of capturing a shot, but rarely the execution 🙂 I enjoy my moon placement and all those that share it with me ❤ Linda

  6. Thanks for sharing, Linda.
    That song about ‘walk and don’t look back’ resonates with me. It seems to be a timely message from the universe. But part of me resists. Part of me says,”Oh no, I can’t walk forward. I first need to figure out why on Earth I have manifested this and that.” But all the doors in that direction seem to close at the moment. That leaves me bummed out. So, all I can do is walk and don’t look back.
    Thanks for this timely message.
    Peace,
    Karin

    1. Hi Karin,
      It does seem timely now that you mention it. Unless one can time travel and change the past there is no reason to stay there. All we have is the present and old habits do die hard. Glad this resonates for you. peace, Linda

  7. I love the power behind the idea of walking and not looking back… I am resonating with that feeling right now… And the stories about your vacations were amazing, Linda. Are you still in touch with your friend from Italy?

    Peace
    Michael

    1. Hi Michael, I like the song so much because it provides a challenge. We were what you call friends for a season. We accomplished quite a bit for one another in terms of expanding our cultural awareness and how to communicate effectively. I feel quite blessed. Keep walking! peace, Linda
