new moon In Gemini Decan 3
The imagination is very active with this New Moon and can be made great use of should you want to go into commercial art and advertising. There will be a great sense of what is popular or what is about to become big. At the same time, the moon is not particularly strong by dignity so it comes with many different strategies. This can be seen as being two-faced and untrustworthy. This is not intentional however, we will just ebb and flow with the public’s moods. Gemini the sign flip-flops between positions and the Moon is very changeable, so you can imagine mutability is high with the Moon in Gemini.
The theme here in Gemini 3 then will be that of dancing around different subjects and moods. This Moon position though, is very psychic as it is so well attuned to the collective consciousness and is quick to adapt to changes in the atmosphere. People, such as astrologers, market traders and bodyworkers will do well at this New Moon. There is a dark twin potential of course because the trickster archetype is alive and well here too. Negatively this Moon can breed swindlers, liars and thieves.
Those touched by this Gemini 3 New moon will be impish and cheeky, so they will get away with any impropriety. Sharp wit will get us out of any scrapes. The biggest problem with this New Moon is having too much choice. It’s like being at a buffet with a tiny plate and knowing you will offend all the cooks of the food you didn’t pick. Whatever choice you make will upset someone. We could find ourselves pulled in two directions. The way around this could be compartmentalised your life, with a wardrobe of personalities you can wear, depending on the setting.
New Moon Tarot Card
The tarot card associated with this decan is the ten of swords. As I stated in the previous decan, unfortunately, the air signs are stuck with the swords suit as representing them so the imagery is not going to be so positive.
We must remember that these cards must be read slightly differently when associated with the decans as they will show the lessons learned in other lifetimes and karma that may have already been paid back. With the 10 we have come to the end of a cycle, so it is likely that these souls are very old indeed.
This card is the end of the line and the darkest hour before dawn, which goes very well with its Saturn rulership. Karmically this life is is about releasing. “Peace is on the way and an end to suffering. However, you cannot just lie there and expect it all to be done for you and to you.
Recovery depends on your letting go of and saying goodbye to the way you have been living and coping with things. Change is needed on every level for you, as what you have been doing up until now has not been working. “ ~ Teachmetarot. This is the area of the super-media gods, their lives are always dramatic, living on the threshold between life and death.
New Moon Fixed Star
Wazn is a star found on the back of the Dove and is from the Arabic ‘Weight’. “The constellation Columba, the Dove, can be viewed as either sitting on the stern.. of the celestial Ship..or flying before it. In the Argonauta expedition, a white dove was sent out of the Argo Navis by Jason. Aided by Athena/Minerva, it shot between the Clashing Rocks, the Symplegades, with such speed that the rocks crashed against each other without killing the bird, only depriving it of a few tail feathers.” Doves could be associated with foresight, auspicious omens then, as well as good news. Doves are notable for both their devotion to their mates and also their fidelity in marriage.
A pair of white doves is a popular love symbol as can be seen in the expression ‘lovey-dovey’, and their cooing to their mates. In courtship, each bird takes the other’s beak in its own, much like lovers kissing. Pliny said: “Though most amorous, they have a great sense of modesty and do not know adultery. Fidelity even after death, because once its companion is gone, this bird never unites with another .”

New Moon healing crystal
The crystal I chose for this new moon is the Dalmatian Jasper since it is associated with the dual nature of Gemini and the balancing of opposites. You can quickly advance in life and discover your true purpose with this stone.
Dalmatian Jasper brings childlike joy and playfulness while at the same time assists with spiritual grounding and psychic protection. It transmutes negative energy through its Black Tourmaline spots without absorbing any toxic residue. So rather than letting negativity affect your well-being, it will convert it into positive energy.
“The vibration of Dalmatian Jasper helps one to release any lack of trust in other people. It lessens disillusionment and helps one see their strengths and weaknesses. Its energy reminds one to open up to life and have fun in the process.” ~ My Crystalpedia
Dalmatian Jasper symbolises health, peace, and mental clarity. In addition, it claims to protect against stress, depression, and negative thinking. As well as being a cleanser, this stone helps align and balance your mental state. It is an instant pick me up, filling you with joyful vibes while dispelling dysfunctional behaviour.
