May’s New Moon falls at 2 degrees of Gemini May 22. Gemini is the natural ruler of the third house of speech communication, and immediate family. Its planetary ruler is Mercury, the planet of communication, and one way or another we will be focused on communicating.
This moon makes a positive trine to Saturn the planet of structure making this a time for building things, or re-building, and a positive time for getting things done.
It also squares Mars creating the possibility of agitation and arguments. As Mars is in Pisces the harsher energy of this moon will not be as difficult.
A new moon is representative of the end of one cycle and beginning of a new cycle that will last two weeks until we will experience the companion June 5, lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. This moon is an excellent time for many types of new starts, or question behavior patterns you may want to let go of old habits.
New Moon confusion
Venus is conjunct Mercury and these two planets square Neptune bringing a lack of clarity, misinformation and confusion especially in the area of relationships, money and communication. Make sure you fully understand and trust any financial opportunities or transactions you are involved in.
Venus square Neptune can lead to insecurity and revelations in relationships, and at this time we could hear of scandals in terms of relationships or financial matters. Venus squared Neptune May 4th-6th for the first time before its retrograde. This will be the second pass of this transit and will personally affect those with mutable planets at 20 degrees.
