Moon at 25 degrees Gemini 07 minutes:
This cycle begins with a major dose of Gemini. Curiosity is at a high.
The Sun and Moon hooked up with Mars as the seeds for this lunation were
being planted and Mercury, now direct, remains in Gemini for another 3
weeks. All of which translates to the mind taking off; wildly expanding
and in need of direction. The quest for information is keen, especially
if it can be used to ensure one's wealth and power. Fortunately, five
days into the cycle, the Sun enters Cancer, followed by Mars three days
later. Emotions will begin to surface, along with the desire for comfort
and security, making it clear that a decision for change is necessary.
