Wednesday’s New Moon in Gemini is, like all New Moons, the beginning of a new cycle. And like all New Moons, it’s yours to take advantage of or not. This one is a little special for two reasons: it features an exact square to Neptune, and a near exact trine to Mars. And since it’s so special, this month I’m not giving you a forecast. Instead, I’m going to tell you what to do.

“Luke, at that speed will you be able to pull out in time?”

The trine to Mars is relatively easy to interpret. It lends energy and ambition to your projects. Since Mars will be passing through the degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross before the next New Moon, CLICK HERE and re-familiarize yourself with the role Mars is playing in that configuration, and specifically in your life. The hassles you were experiencing around this time last month? They’ll be back in June.

“Artoo, that stabilizer’s broken loose again. See if you can’t lock it down.”

But: that energy can be used to your advantage if you are conscious of it. A New Moon square Neptune, though? That’s where The Crazy comes in. A square between two planets is a powerful connection, especially when it’s exact. But it’s not an easy or comfortable one. Squares are demanding. Squares don’t like to be controlled. And frankly, any square involving Neptune has to be treated as if it may be a bit delusional.

“Hurry Luke, they’re coming in much faster this time, I can’t hold them!”

So I ask you: exactly how well has being rational and realistic gone for you lately?

“Use the force, Luke. Let go.”

Rather than a forecast, I am offering you a meditation… drawn from that powerful mystical text, Star Wars… and a plan of action. Mercury sextile Venus is in full effect today, so your creative powers should be running high. Play along and make your life a better place!

The New Moon is exact on Wednesday at 2:40 PM Eastern, 11:40 AM Pacific. Somewhere in the five or six hours after that… your gut will know when the time is right… take action.

“Luke, you’ve switched off your targeting computer. What’s wrong?”
“Nothing. I’m all right.”

You already know what needs to change in your life, even if you’re having a hard time grasping the details. Even if you don’t think you know what needs to change, there’s some part of you hidden deep in the right hemisphere of your brain that has a good idea what to do, or where to start, somehow.

“I’ve lost Artoo!”

So: let go of all your logical excuses and just do it already. This doesn’t mean you have to solve all of your problems today. But it means that — whatever it is in that mad scampering brain of yours that kept you from taking the action you need to make your life a better place — take some sort of action today. Specifically, take that action somewhere between 2:40 PM Eastern (11:40 AM Pacific) and the end of the day. Plant a seed. Proofread your resume. Write a love letter, even if you don’t know who to send it to yet. Turn left instead of right. Consciously skip at least one cigarette. Light a candle and pray. Deliberately walk an extra block when you don’t really have to. Do it. DO IT.


Do something to point yourself in the direction of that better life you want… no matter how vague your sense of direction may be… and there’s an excellent chance the today’s the day that dream will start to take root in practical form. You’ve got Jupiter and Saturn on your side for the next two months.

“You’re all clear kid! Now let’s blow this thing and go home!”

Yes. A New Moon square Neptune is quite clearly crazy. But just because something is “crazy” doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Crazy things have a life and vitality and power that rational and sensible things just can’t match sometimes. Not sure where to start with changing your life, or what direction to go in? Do SOMETHING different in that golden stretch of time after the New Moon. Light a candle. Sing on a street-corner. Make a prank call. Put your pants in the freezer. Give a stranger five bucks they didn’t ask for, for absolutely no reason. Whatever you choose to do, no matter how clearly nuts, will make perfect sense to the part of your mind that needs to hear the message today.

There is magic in the air today… but you have to make that first step towards it before it can find you.

“Remember: The Force will be with you. Always.”
