June 16th's New Moon (at 25 degrees Gemini) has an edgy, uncertain feel to it.
It's conjunct Mars (at 24 degrees) which ensures anything that begins will do so with a bang. Gemini is about more than one answer/choice/idea. Expect a rush of words, all powered up by Mars' aggression.
This Marsy Moon will form a painful square to Black Moon Lilith (at 22 degrees Virgo) opposing Chiron (21 degrees Pisces). For those not familiar with Lilith, she represents raw, female power and anger. She's powerful because she doesn't obey the rules, and she's angry because she doesn't fit in. I wrote about her transit of Virgo here.
BML's anger will be inflamed by Mars, and Chiron's energy will add an extra layer of sensitivity. This suggests hasty words or decisions (Gemini), driven by pain. BML will be confronted head on with her greatest fear (not belonging) and Chiron is a maverick, sticking out because he's wounded, and wounded because he sticks out. When Lilith opposes the Wounded Healer, there's a showdown between rage and healing. Chiron has access to empathy, while Lilith just lashes out. But when her rage is focused in the right direction, she becomes the Dark Goddess with transformative powers.
Mars is male energy, and when he challenges Lilith, there will be sexual tension. This can devolve into a war of words, or it can be used to speak out against injustices. This energy doesn't feel sexy (although I suppose if you're creative and you have a healthy sex life, you could explore those dynamics). BML makes people uncomfortable because she's coming from a place that most don't want to acknowledge (the mistress, the other woman, sex without nurturing, female anger, etc). BML in Virgo, square Mars in Gemini, can draw people's attention to the truth about unpleasant but essential facts.
Even if you don't connect to BML, Chiron's square to this Moon will still bring up the theme of painful information and anger, with the potential for healing (once the pain has been acknowledged). Knowing this, you can choose (Gemini) your approach; will you lash out, or be clever about it? Gemini is not stupid. This sign is the master of intel, so you'll have information at your disposal. Pick your words carefully, and use them for maximum impact.
Themes of this New Moon:
- talking about what no one wants to hear
- making yourself heard from the sidelines
- male and female power dynamics
- working with anger in an intelligent manner
If you have natal or progressed planets/angles or Nodes from 21 to 26 degrees of the Mutable signs, you'll feel this Moon most strongly.
