The River of Forgetfulness is Overflowing

New Moon in Gemini on May 22, 2020.

Astroweather for the Gemini New Moon on May 22, 2020.

We are starting to envision a new future for ourselves. We may feel very enthusiastic, inspired and even spiritual. We may be inspired to use our creativity and imagination to manifest the new world. We may also rejoice and revel in many new, clever ways to connect and reconnect with friends, family and our social circle. But, due to Neptune squaring both Venus and Mercury, we are not seeing the full picture. Not to mention that four planets are retrograding, including Venus. Mars is also starting to put pressure on us, wanting us to act. But make sure you are proceeding cautiously, because Neptune, the planet of inspiration but also illusion, is inviting us to escape and drink from what Plato called the River of Forgetfulness. We may want to throw caution to the wind and forget what has happened so far. But all is not as it appears, as Neptune may blur or conceal facts from us. Definitely envision, plan and hope, but with caution.

Aries. (March 21 – April 19)

The Gemini new moon is happening in your house of communication and the mind. The urge to burst out into the world is quite irresistible, especially for you. But Neptune along with your sign ruler Mars in your 12th house is indicating that many things are hidden from you. Try to celebrate the little wins, before you make big moves.

Taurus. (April 20 – May 20)

The Gemini new moon is happening in your house of possessions and values, with Neptune and Mars squaring from your house of friends and groups. As much as you value your friends and social circles, you are not seeing the facts right now. Value yourself the most, and take your time to proceed.

Gemini. (May 21 – June 20)

The Gemini new moon is your big chance to restart. Both your identity and also career is being reshuffled; many changes are either ahead or have just happened. New opportunities are definitely around, they are just difficult to envision or see clearly at the moment. Dream big, but don't jump into the first opportunity you see.

Cancer. (June 21 – July 22)

The Gemini new moon is giving you a chance to self reflect, and review all your relationships, while others maybe proceeding fast and furious. You are generally slower than others to process your multitude of emotions, and are feeling quite philosophical right now. This is definitely the perfect time to meditate how to proceed from here, right before your birthday month. Look how far you have come.

Leo. (July 23 – August 22)

The house of your social life is very active. But your finances may need tending to. How boring, as you would rather run around being shiny and creative. You can do both! First, pay attention to the details if you are making financial commitments, and then you can party, but with caution.

Virgo. (August 23 – September 22)

You are the one sign that should pay attention to the opportunities handed to you right now, especially regarding career. Don't let your natural humbleness and cautiousness stop you. Just understand that other people's motivations are not clear to you at this time. But don't let that stop you. Believe, learn to receive well what is given, and proceed with your inner strength rather than leaning on others.

Libra. (September 23 – October 22)

You are quite ready to travel, or expand your mind in some way, or at least start planning. You are really enjoying envisioning your future. Everyday life has somehow become quite busy despite everything, but frankly, in a way that is distracting, more than inspiring. Now is definitely the time to manifest and shape your life philosophy, to get ready. For now, hover above the details without committing yet, and concentrate only on the big picture for maximum results.

Scorpio. (October 23 – November 21)

The Gemini new moon is bringing you many opportunities to co-operate on big projects with others. Contracts are being signed and big plans are being made. Just read the dotted line carefully or postpone signing altogether, if possible. Don't let Neptune and your desire to party to confuse you. This time next month you will have a much better idea where you stand.

Sagittarius. (November 22 – December 21)

Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this Gemini new moon, but especially family. Added to the mix is confusion and increasing pressure especially from the home front. The instinct to act, any which way, is strong now. Resist the urge to be impulsive, as Neptune is offering you a drink from the river of forgetfulness, not telling you all the facts. You can always drink it later.

Capricorn. (December 22 – January 19)

Taking care of your daily routines and wellness is highlighted this new moon. A lot of new information and communications is coming through, and you are full of hope and enthusiasm. But the Neptune square warns us to be discerning. There is pressure to commit to certain processes, but caution is advised. Just one day at a time for now.

Aquarius. (January 20 – February 18)

Drinking from the river of forgetfulness seems to be more irresistible to you more than most. Aquariuses just wanna have fun!? Absolutely they do. And there will be time for that, later. Use your imagination and creativity to come up with new ways to have simple, wholesome fun.

Pisces. (February 19 – March 20)

This new moon is affecting you to your very core. Especially your home life is buzzing with activity. New ideas, new opportunities, new ideals, new philosophies. You may want to reshuffle your home environment, which will then effect your entire life philosophy. Let the pressure build, try to ignore it instead of acting on it. By this time next month you will have a much better idea where things are and really get creative.
