New Moon 30 May 2022 ~ White Knight


The New Moon May 2022 at 9º Gemini Decan 1. Aspect: Unaspected! Fixed Star: Aldebaran In Constellation Taurus. Tarot Card: 8 Of Swords. Healing Crystal: Emerald. Sabian Symbol: An airplane falling.

New Moon Gemini Decan 1

The New Moon May 2022 will emphasise the very darkest aspects of Gemini 1. This is because the Moon represents the unconscious and this decan especially deals with having to face one’s shadow. The problem here is that it is very hard to see shadows in the dark, and it is much more likely that we will project the bogeymen onto others. Another problem is running away from intimacy.

At this new moon we are very uncomfortable with really deep emotions, but at the same time, those touched by this new moon could do a great impression of being really romantic and gushing. However, when it comes to the gut-wrenching, ugly expressions of raw feeling they will run a mile. So, don’t get drunk and send anyone a Skype video of your puffy, drivelling, all-cried-out face when they have dumped you. Nail in the coffin, repeat. If they weren’t a callous psychopath before you met them, this new Moon in Gemini 1 will certainly create one for you if you offload ‘heavy emotional stuff’ onto anyone at this time.

Is there anything nice to say about this seemingly shallow charlatan of a new moon you might ask?! I’m playing devil’s advocate here, which Gemini’s do so well. (Author has this rising.) To be fair, what happens here is not really the jestful Gemini new moon’s fault. What this moon will actually do is bring to the surface, in droves, really needy, clingy, leech type relationships that might make you feel like the worst demon on earth if you say no to them. All because you simply want some breathing space. It’s that polarity working again with Moon Gemini 1 holding up the lunar mirror.

At this new moon we will have little patience with other peoples hangups and neurosis. However this is a great moon for helping others heal their own deep, dark shadows. Works spoken at this time might feel harsh and intolerant. This Gemini new moon is great for telling it how it is! But can you take it back? In some cases, if you happen to be a watery, clinging male, your freedom-loving partner (Moon) may point out your stalking/blubbering/limpet behaviour. Sorry…

New Moon May 2022

New Moon Aspects

Although the moon is completely unaspected, this Sun conjunction Moon on Aldebaran on its own makes it a really powerful one as it can work as purely heroic with no aspects influencing the lunar energy. However the newly Arian Jupiter gets a conjunction from Mars for this new moon giving us an injection of courage. Mars conjunction Jupiter is a crusader, heroic and brave which complements the ‘knight-in-shining’ armour energy of Aldebaran fantastically.

New Moon Fixed Star Aldebaran


This star takes us back to Arthurian times when love was courtly and brave men risked life and limb for the woman they loved. Here we get good old-fashioned chivalry, before the days of ‘I can open a door and light my cigarette myself, you patronising bastard!’… Even if smug Aldebaran might seem like a cartoon, thigh-slapping Prince, he does actually mean well. Aldebaran has the prestige of being one of the Royal stars of Persia and is also known as Archangel Michael.

The four royal stars are the sky guardians of the North, South, East and West. They also represent the four elements. Aldebaran is earth and the watcher of the East, where the Sun rises. Robson says generally this star “gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also a danger of violence and sickness.” Gemini decan 1 is about duality and polarity and directly opposite Aldebaran we get Antares, his nemesis, but that’s another story…

New Moon Tarot Card

8 of swords

The tarot card associated with Gemini Decan 1 is the eight of swords. 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. In this case, you can see already that this intense decan has Alcyone, the Hyades and Aldebaran no less. So this the energy of old souls who have learned many, many harsh lessons.

With this decan, it is vitally important to break out of the negative cycle of doom and gloom and realise that the worst is OVER! “With the Eight of Swords, there is often a failure to take responsibility for your situation. You will not act or take control. Instead, you wait for others to come to your rescue….in the majority of cases suggests that the problem you are in is more than likely of your own making.

Yes, we do get into binds or get caught in traps created by other people, but then allow ourselves or give permission to be taken, prisoner.” ~ Teach Me Tarot. With Aldebaran the royal star here it is entirely possible to become your own saviour, but you may just be too blind to see that…

New Moon Sabian Symbol

A Plane Falling ~ Overcoming physical limits

“This material plane is not an absolute restriction –  with extraordinary struggle  we can develop super-normal abilities.. Being able to fly opposes the force of gravity, which defines physicality; being able to overcome fear opposes the power of death to limit our sense of immortality.” ~

New Moon Healing Crystal ~ The Emerald

Emerald moon

Emerald is an exceptional support stone for entrepreneurs. It inspires eloquence in speech and improves mental acuity (Compliments this Gemini moon also). For occupations requiring visionary insight, natural Emerald or tumblestone should be held momentarily every day until facts can be easily recalled. Success in business is energised, particularly for older women, and Emerald helps with legal matters, trials, and litigation.

Whether for a job, an interest, or a person, Emerald is excellent for reviving passion. Emeralds are said to attract romantic love, so wear or carry one near your heart at this new moon. It is possible to call back an estranged loved one by speaking the words you intend to say while holding the stone close to your lips and sealing the stone in an envelope. If magic is their thing, send that envelope to the beloved along with a cryptic message at this new moon.

Generally Emerald is know as the ‘Success In Love’ stone, it promotes compassion, fidelity, patience, reunification, domestic bliss and un-conditional love. Since we are in Mercury retrograde Emerald should also smooth over miss-understandings and calm any bickering.

  1. I am glad someone pointed out the Joan of Arc connection. I loved her as a child and read everything I could about her. It was almost unnerving to learn a few years ago that her feast day is on my birthday. I learned there was a book I hadn’t read: Personal Reflections of Joan of Arc by The Sieur Louis de Conte (Her Page and Secretary). I recently found it at a local Catholic bookstore, it is still being published. It was written by Mark Twain. He considered it his favorite of all his books and spent years in research. I’m just getting into it. It starts with her childhood. She keeps coming up: I came across stamps issued by North Korea, Joan of Arc and St Michael. Seems appropriate somehow for this season.

  2. Fascinating. You know, Marina, that May 30 is the feast of St. Joan of Arc, a girl with a sword, who was guided by St. Michael the Archangel. She was burned at the stake on May 30 after a bogus trial.
