It was seemingly perfect timing to create these intentions as the balsamic moon is a day to contemplate what has passed and how one wishes to use the wisdom gained since the last new moon to envisage new possibilities.
Today's new moon is in Gemini. It is the second new moon in Gemini within a month which is unusual. Gemini is the sign of information gathering and communication. It concerns itself with facts rather than meanings and so it is useful to continually review and asssess what one is hearing, seeing and indeed saying to oneself. Setting intentions on the day of the new moon, based on present information, sets the scene for the next four weeks and focuses our attention on what it is we wish to achieve.
We are moving into yet another socially 'challenging' time astrologically and therefore having specific goals but flexible approaches is to be recommended in order to prevent us from sliding into seemingly chaotic events and possible emotional turmoil.
