New Moon Gemini June 16th 2015

This new moon presents itself at 6.51am Perth time.

How have you felt between the last two weeks since the powerful and deepening energies of the Full Moon together with the Mercury Retrograde?

Masks were lifted. I know for some a lot was revealed, released and with a new awareness and perspective created.  Clearing out the inner body to manifest a new way of being. Letting go can be challenging to do.

Blessings come within the hardest of lessons and the love moments we can feel are at its purest when our sense of being has been turned upside down and inside out especially when we reach stages of relief. We seem to cherish these moments and ourselves more profoundly.
I saw the Dali Lama this week whilst he was visiting Perth.  It was an honour to be in his presence with another 8000 people.  He spoke of the connection between the body and the mind and the cultivation of inner peace. He mentioned that one cannot look for inner peace outside of ourselves, we cannot just go and purchase it for $7 at the supermarket – (Bummer ) It is the mind and the heart that create this inner peace.  Compassionate mind and a compassionate heart – it really resonated something in me – an inspired me to deepen my inner practise. These realisations and awakenings are congruent with this New Moon.

This new moon has the propensity to send and carry some well-deserved requests and loving vibes into the ether with a sense of gratitude for the lessons learnt and the freedom now to deeply create from a soul level.  Make sure you write down your new moon intention with this in mind.

Communication from this level are what dreams are made of – feel strong, worthy and powerful this new moon – ask for what you want and then claim it with action and affirmation.  This energy has been following us for the last six weeks – with Mercury now direct (shadow period ends on the 20th June) we are slowly being given the green light to instigate new visions operating from new perspectives and if we are lucky, even a shift in our consciousness.  It’s so true the saying “everything happens in divine timing “ – as that time is now in this moment as you read this if you want it to be … What will you ask for? How will you ask – will you write it, sing it, dance it – this is fundamental this new moon – what is your true way to speak? Will you choose to be quiet enough to listen to see what needs to be expressed? Or do you already know?

Intuition and what is so deeply valued is the guide.

If there is still a sense of confusion on anything, stop, connect, write, talk and communicate what and who holds dear.  This is the key for this new moon.  It is a fresh start on how we communicate with our self and/or others.  Words can heal as much as they hurt.  Be mindful of this as with this new moon there is a dynamic energy (Mars) playing alongside that can have us shoot from the hip and lose our shite!
There are two flowers that resonate with this new moon – which is quite apt since it’s in the sign of the twins, Gemini. Dampiera and Catspaw

Damperia helps us to let go of problems of stress, inflexibility (mental and physically) and to adapt to changing circumstances. There is a sense that we all are getting a push to change on one level or another. This is the essence of letting go and allowing new life to flow in (Gemini Moon with Mars energy).

Catspaw helps us to speak our truth. It gives one the permission to show our true colours and express from a deeper place within. What do you need the courage to say?

From my heart I speak, the meaning is not hidden. I say my peace, I give of my mind.  Whatever comes my way from this can only be the bliss of Truth.

May this be the affirmation for this new moon. Let go and, communicate whatever needs to be said or creatively expressed. Do it with the trust to just be yourself in whatever way is truthfully and soulfully fulfilling and yours to own.


“In the centre of the circle I sit and contemplate. I set my bearing and with power move forward in a straight line wrapped in the glow of my inner being”

Vasudeva and Kadambbii Barnao

This is a great time to rethink about any new beginnings, dreams or visions you want to create for your future – this Full Moon’s energy supports this. As we are currently in a Mercury Retrograde, the emphasis is also on seeing things from another perspective or revaluating these plans by becoming aware of your inner dialogue. Does the way you talk to yourself support you?

The Full Moon always brings something to light so we can change our perspective. If necessary we can change course, or even change behaviour patterns in order to create more inner and/or outer harmony. Awareness around how and what we think about in our private moments may be apparent. What do you actually think about all day? Where are you putting your mental energy?

There are many planets in play with this Full Moon which can create scattered thinking or alternatively a lot of information/communication could be coming in – so much so that we can’t make head nor tail about what to give our attention to. The lunation of the moon is usually felt a three days before and a three days after so this one is already activated. The earth elemental energy is weak, planets are either in water, air or fire signs, bringing a very fast and dynamic energy to the fore.

Make time to get grounded and centred otherwise you may feel like you are in la la land or you could easily become overwhelmed if the mind is in overdrive – this could also prove to be exhausting. Slow down …. Breathe. Emotional outbursts are possible as are long overdue conversations with your nearest and dearest where long term healing could prevail – bbbuuuttt if in doubt don’t go there as with Mercury Retrograde and an overactive Moon – miscommunication could be rife. Trust your intuition that all will be well and it will be.

The Pink Trumpet Flower resonates so strongly with this Full Moon. The healing aspects of the Pink Trumpet Flower brings the mind to a strong focus on an internal point, where one can hear and connect to the higher mind and vision (Sagittarius energy).  It is from this point the mind can maintain focus on the moment and finish things until it is completed.   A new mental directness can be achieved and one can direct the mental energy towards goals, and creative visions. Where ever our mental energy goes things manifest and this is what we all want especially when it comes to creating dreams, visions and goals that benefit and nurture us on all levels.

If you have lost focus or have none, redirect your thinking to get back on track. Be compassionate with yourself if your unsupportive thoughts have gotten the better of you.  Create a simple mental intention such as “I would like more love in my life” or “I would like more time and space to do the things that make me happy”. Whatever intention you set, make sure that you also connect with it emotionally.  Feel it actually happening for you. See it. This Full Moon supports this. The more you focus on what you want rather than what you do not want, the closer you are to making it a reality.  AWESOME!

The Full Moon peaks at 12.20am Perth time on the 3rd June 2015.

The energy of this New Moon promotes an awareness of what we value in ourselves and others.  It’s a time to get grounded and attend to our physical needs through self-nurture, diet, exercise and sensual pleasure.  How DO YOU nurture? and WHAT nurtures YOU?
Focus in on your resources and how you use them – be it time, money, energy and whether you are creating things that are really valuable to you that give you stability and freedom (inwardly and outwardly). By looking at this we can really strengthen our sense of self-worth.
Are you valuing yourself?

The flower essence that resonates with the Taurus New Moon and the weeks leading up to the Full Moon in June – is our native Leafless Orchid. This flower essence helps us to focus on what is really important to us and brings forth a deep wisdom so that we operate and give from an authentic space and not out of obligation.  It is fabulous for anxiety – especially in children. It is an extremely restorative essence and can be used by those suffering burn out.  It gives us the courage to really look at our “stuff” without judgement of self and of others.  It helps us not to give away our energy too frivolously and recognize the value of what we give to others.
Leafless Orchid is the essence resonating with the Taurus New Moon and is available for $15.00. Use the essence and the affirmation plan with our New Moon Guide to help you set your goals, feel valued and unlock your potential.

It is always incredibly empowering to set intentions at the new moon.  The art of asking from an energy bigger than ourselves is incredibly powerful and intimate.  You can simply write 10 of your cherished dreams or things that you wish to see manifest over the coming month. Make sure they are realistic and achievable. You can burn them or leave them in a diary for future reference – the more effort you put in – the more you are bound to get back.

I always use sparkly pens and write them in my new moon diary with pictures to get a real visual picture of what I want to achieve and then following up with action so the energy of intention is then reinvested. For me, this is a fabulous ritual that brings me back to myself every month and it feels wonderfully nurturing and liberating.  It is a great tool to create and give energy to things that we do want and diverts our attention (and energy) away from what we don’t. If you need to make some really deep and radical decisions, set the intention to make choices and intentions FOR your well being and not against others and that way you know where your truth really lies.
There is a fabulous five hour window in which we can set our new moon intentions for the coming month before Mercury goes retrograde (please refer to my earlier post). Set your new moon intentions after 12.16pm (Perth time) to make the most of the new moon energy. Over the coming weeks we get the opportunity to really look at and review what is important to us and what and who we need in our lives.  This is fantastic!  We can really slow down and ponder (not act just yet – if you can wait until Mercury goes direct),  knowing we have wonderful earthly energy supporting us in our internal reflection. It also makes way for fabulous goal setting for the June 17th New Moon – as Mercury will be moving direct (goes direct June 11th) and intentions set for BOTH moons will have even more support to take shape :0). Awesome!
