The language of friendship is not words but meanings. Henry David Thoreau

Whenever two good people argue over principles, both are always right. Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
A different language is a different version of life. Federico Fellini
I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, so nothing of what I was studying seemed to fit. I know now that I should have taken advantage of that time and that I missed a great deal of the opportunity to educate myself. Harrison Ford
In studying the way, realizing it is hard; once you have realized it, preserving it is hard. When you can preserve it, putting it into practice is hard. Zen proverb
The new Moon each month marks a time of new beginnings and realisations. It's like a birth after a time of gestation or being 'in the womb'. Here, the light begins to return and we can see new beginnings and possibilities. A new Moon means that the Sun and the Moon are both together - bringing a synergy of their energies together. The new Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions for the future. This period is wonderful for planting seeds of whatever kind. What do you want to manifest in your future? Whether you write it down, sing about it or just hold the thought forms in your mind, doing this at the new Moon can realise some fabulous results around the things that you want to draw into your life
The Gemini new Moon occurs on the 4th June in the United States and the 5th in Australia and the UK. This is a very big new Moon. Falling on Gemini 15, it may even be the biggest of the entire year as it is forming a grand cross with Saturn on Sagittarius 13, Jupiter on Virgo 15 and Neptune on Pisces 13.
So, we are in throes of a tight square between Saturn and Neptune. We may find that our dreams and hopes and visions - Neptune - for our lives (and/or our world), may be coming up against the old-guard, Saturn. It can be a hard bump with reality and we may want to overthrow the past - to purge our lives, beliefs, intentions, etc, of those things that are no longer viable, useful or promising - to cut the Gordian Knot as Alexander The Great did, solving the puzzle of the past so he could go on to conquer greater lands.
The square between Saturn and Neptune can be rather depressing, but this is more likely if we are not moving forward in a way that is taking into account current realities, current possibilities, etc.
It is interesting to note that the Sabian Symbols for both Saturn and Neptune are talking about the past - the necessity of facing it, dealing with it, cleansing it, releasing it, healing the stories we might have, stopping the battling, the pushing, the arguing, etc. The Symbol for Saturn is Sagittarius 13: A WIDOW'S PAST IS BROUGHT TO LIGHT, and, Neptune on Pisces 13: A SWORD IN A MUSEUM. Issues that are coming up are likely to have something to do with relationships - past or present - and the need to face up to some 'secrets' or issues that may have previously been suppressed, ignored, kept hidden or not comfortable to have come to light. The 'Sword' is, amongst other possibilities and outcomes, showing us that we need to cut the Gordian Knot - to sever something that no longer works for us. All kinds of connections can be cut now. If a connection is cut and yet it comes back to you in a more pure form, then it was supposed to be in your life. If not, it is probably time to let it go completely - to stop thinking about it, obsessing, going over and over the details - the what ifs, etc.
