The Gemini New Moon and a Rare 3-Way Planetary Rendezvous in Evolutionary Aquarius

Sc000e6559 The Mother Earth and all life upon it experience an unusual and verifiable “new age” planetary event this week. As the Sun and Moon conjoin at 03º 27’ Gemini on May 24th in the aspect of a New Moon, a rare three-way rendezvous between Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune is taking place in the cosmos at 26º Aquarius.

Jupiter represents expansion, opportunity, exploration, discovery, foreign affairs and all types of growth. Neptune is the planet of mystical, spiritual and out-of-body experience. Chiron is an asteroid/planetoid – discovered in 1977 – that rules alternative medicine, holistic healing, wounds of all kinds and anything with the root-word “chiro.”

Because this conjunction takes place in the late degrees of Aquarius and we are collectively taking our first baby steps through the first years of the New Aquarian Age, it heralds a simultaneous milestone and touchstone of personal awakening and global awareness. We see the connection between our own individual health and the health of our home planet Earth. We recognize that leadership is truly by example and that hypocrisy is an essentially dysfunctional and destructive disease that destroys people, relationships and governments. Both Jupiter and Aquarius live and thrive on truth. Neptune and Aquarius see beyond the physical and mundane. Chiron and Aquarius are champions of the unconventional, inventive and evolutionary.

For all of us, this is a week to wake up and look beyond the proverbial horizon. It is a time for examining our personal health quotient – Mercury retrograde until May 31st also favors this – and discerning where and how we can improve it. We must look not only at our physical health, but also our metaphysical health. What’s the connection between body and spirit? How do our thoughts dictate our reality and manifest emotion? What about the ways and means of perception? Have we forgotten our connection to a Higher Power, including our dependence upon and relationship to our Mother Earth? How can we individually contribute to “world health” and give our special and unique gifts to humanity?

Aquarius is the bringer of knowledge and information. The archetypal image of the Waterbearer is that of a human being pouring water from an urn on to the land below. The water flowing from the urn symbolizes the nurturing water of knowledge, and this week, water is flowing in abundance – take a look at the San Miguel! Associated with enlightenment, spiritual evolution and collective consciousness, Aquarius opens doors that connect us to people and associations that share and support our hopes, dreams and visions.

This unique planetary configuration taking shape at the time of the Gemini New Moon presents us with an inter-dimensional portal of inspiration, healing and transcendence. Pay attention to the events, experiences and opportunities that come your way this week. Pack your bags and prepare for travel. You are embarking upon a journey that will take you from the headwaters of the River of Life to the Cosmic Sea and the great Galactic Ocean. Good luck and may the fortune of Jupiter, the divinity of Neptune and the chiromancy of Chiron guide your course. Happy New Moon and go with the Flow!
