a gemini new moon love letter to myself

Since I’m feeling a deep need to do the kind of writing that goes into Mini Astro-Consultations, I decided to write one as a love letter to myself for this Gemini New Moon.  I thought I’d share it here with you so that you can get a feel for what a Mini Astro-Consultation looks like.  The only meaningful difference between this one and one you receive when you place an order is that, to ensure that you’re not overwhelmed by the astrological jargon, I don’t bunch up those terms quite as much and I explain them more fully when writing for you.

Reading for Nick

Aries sun, Sagittarius rising, Pisces moon

Dear Nick,

  1. How have I grown this past lunar cycle?
  2. What can I be most proud of right now?
  3. What does this lunar cycle have to teach me?
  4. What karmic baggage is ready to be released?
  5. How can I find the strength to let go?
  6. How can I better communicate my needs and boundaries as I heal?

The top row is inspired by the Sabian image for this new moon: “Three fledglings peer proudly out of their high nest.” Those questions are also aimed at helping us find our footing in the midst of extra tender collective grieving and sadness. The middle row taps into Mars’s recent conjunction with the South Node and their upcoming second meeting after Mars turn retrograde. The final question relates to Mercury’s sextile to Uranus and opposition to Saturn (these influences are explained more fully in this instagram post).
