The intuitive and rational parts of brain interact to modify sensory information. In these images, the moon is of the same size but is perceived differently. The position of Sun, Moon, Planets and Stars that describe the major events of ‘RAMAYANA’ in reality are not actual positions but are only apparent postions perceived by man (women don’t have this issue.~L). Man needs the Force of “KRUPA” to overcome the trappings of “MAYA”.
Rohini nakshatra, where our new moon takes place, is ruled by the moon. This is the blushing bride, favorite of the creator Brahma. All seed action or planning is is well aspected here, as this is the origin of the creative desire for bliss. Rohini is symbolized by the bull and means opulent, creative, fertile sexuality, imagination and beauty. It’s all about stillness and self-control with short bursts of staccato energy that yield amazing results. Optimal feminine receptivity amplifies your precise, playful, creative brush-strokes. Keep it happy, flirty and sensual and mind your perspective.~L
Let’s try to be as clear as possible about this new moon in Gemini (duality, FAST, clever CHANGE). We know from past study that new moons are conjunctions of the sun (what we want, Soul) and the moon (what we need, personality), so they are both in that part of the sky, but this time around our luminaries are joined by (benefic, attractive) Venus also in very close conjunction.
Simultaneously, Saturn (integrity policeman) in Sagittarius (truth & purpose) is in opposition and Jupiter (expansion) in Virgo (details) and Neptune (dissolution) in Pisces (spirit and duality), are both EXACTLY square that new moon, Sun and Venus (soul, personality and desire = insatiable LONGING) to our quickly shifting gathering.
Earth’s daily spin causes the moon – like the sun – to rise in the east and set in the west each day. Image via Martin Clebourne’s article Where is the Moon?
2. The moon rises in the east and sets in the west, each and every day. It has to. The rising and setting of all celestial objects is due to Earth’s continuous daily spin beneath the sky. ~earthsky.org
3. The moon takes about a month to orbit the Earth. Although the moon rises in the east and sets in the west each day (due to Earth’s spin), it’s also moving on the sky’s dome each day due to its own motion in orbit around Earth.
The moon’s orbital motion carries it eastward in Earth’s sky. Image via cseligman.com.
4. The moon’s orbital motion is toward the east. Each day, as the moon moves another 12-13 degrees toward the east on the sky’s dome, Earth has to rotate a little longer to bring you around to where the moon is in space. . ~earthsky.org
“There are riches to be explored in the extended pause – a number of inconvenient truths that will take us deeper to the core of our being. If you can stay put for now, you might just uncover a subtle greatness. It won’t be grand; this kind of greatness is not loud or boisterous, nor does it come with a shiny prize. It is simply and purely the greatness of you as you are that will bring a quiet relief to the mayhem, and to discover it, we must dismantle the illusions we’ve created of ourselves that blind us from the reality of what makes us authentic.
Greatness is our approach to the journey, the intentional steps we choose to take along the way. For once, consider that you have nothing to prove to others – no masks to wear or roles to play. All you have is this one life to live, and the greatness to be that which is simply and purely you.”
“Generally, the moon represents the mind and the emotions in a person, so has a very personal significance to each individual, whereas the sun represents the soul. Of course the sun is very important to us too as it our main source of light, but its light is reflected on the moon (as the moon has no light source of its own), so the moon is the bearer of the soul’s energy. Therefore the Moon indicates our emotional and psychological patterns and tendencies. If the moon is waning (on its way from full to no moon), then this will generally make you more withdrawn and reflective. You will generally not seek the limelight.
An unfavorable time for beginning something new, but favorable for closing something, putting it behind us, and for endings in general. A time for personal reflection, tying up loose ends.

Something new is born; or the “seeding” of something new. We are acting with spontaneity, from a place of instinct. All information has not been revealed to us yet. There is no objectivity at this point in the cycle. It’s a good time for doing something new, but because we are lacking in information at this time, it is a risky time for important new endeavors, such as the beginning of a new business or relationship. It’s not a time for making solid commitments or promises, as new information may emerge later on that could change our minds. It’s a good time for making wishes or coming up with new ideas.

“This will be a time to make concrete your visions of the material world you wish to inhabit, and the value systems that structure them into being. Also a fantastic time to spend time in Nature and re-acquaint yourself with the consciousness of Gaia-Sophia. Essentially, we´re being asked to release older ways of attaching ourselves to karmic patterns so that we may find the material structure and expressions of the gifts and inner knowing that lies in wait. Here is where you let Spirit take the reins and to inspire your material creations, or rather, Co-Creations.
In other words, the next three days (31 May – 2 June 2016) are going to bring a very different kind of intensity to what we´ve been feeling as of late. Or rather, a variation on certain themes. One that leads us collectively to a significant threshold of consciousness, to older visions of the Sacred: Gloriously Dark and Powerfully Feminine.
Bear in mind that all this comes just after the recent approach of Mars in Scorpio to Planet Earth. So much has been unearthed, at the individual and the collective level. Whoo hoo!”

“As clouds dance around the sky to illuminate areas of the earth, and other parts are left in the shadow, Gemini dances between these two realties, confronting the relationship between space and matter. This air sign, flies into our lives to pollinate ideas, inspiring us to explore new relationships, our curiosity is sharpened, opening our eyes and heart to our authentic self. A mutable time to facilitate communication, feeling joyous and electrified. Everything and everyone will be magnetized by this new moon. It is time to move into new terrain with flexibility and openness. We are entering this new phase with purpose and knowledge. Tapping into the cosmic wisdom, accomplishing miracles, bringing order to the chaos, releasing all fears.”

“It’s easy to get off agenda in this astrological weather. It’s a whirligig of options. A spinning top of topics. A moving feast of facts and to try and take it all in would leave us bloated and besieged with information.
Amidst all that, the moon is waning to darkness, to be renewed in this turbine of tumult on Saturday, June 4th at 7.59PM PT (we disagree by minutes~L). This is a highly creative new moon, possibly with too many options to make use of. The key this week is to stay grounded, to take small steps without leaping to any major conclusions. With the winds of change so whipped into a frenzy, it’s best not to get caught out in the open fields when they really get going.”
“Rohini nakshatra is called the Star of Ascent. It falls under the zodiac sign of Taurus. The ruling planet of this nakshatra is Moon or Chandra. The presiding deity of Rohini is Brahma. The other name for Rohini is Suravi – celestial cow. It is the fourth nakshatra of the lunar mansion. The power of this nakshatra is Rohana Shakthi, which means, power of growth and creation. It also means creative development at all levels, bestowing fertility. The symbol of Rohini is Chariot.” ~astroved.com
