Happy new moon! This upcoming new moon is in air sign Gemini. The New Moon in Gemini sparkles in cleansing starlight. The twins spin like weather vanes in a cool breeze. I see blue eyes electrifying the sky. I see mercury quivering, a feather drifting aloft. I see warm nights and bare arms, laughing fairies and painted flowers.
Often new moons make us feel tired, but not so with Gemini. This new moon is exceptionally busy and extroverted. We’ll pack a lot into one day. Gemini, ruled by Mercury the Messenger, promotes conversation and brainstorming. It is time to capture our thoughts on paper, or in a song. I always encourage my readers to channel their creative energies because I believe this is crucial for healing and processing. If you don’t consider yourself an artist, you haven’t found your medium yet. If you don’t consider yourself a writer, pick up a pen and begin free-writing. Too often we let fear of failure/mediocrity dampen our creativity.
There’s a lot happening on this new moon, starting with a conjunction between Venus Retrograde and Mercury in Gemini in the wee hours of the morning. This influence is so positive and pleasant. Small happy surprises are likely. About three hours later, the Gemini sun trines Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius. Saturn’s influence is stabilizing and fortifying. This aspect makes us feel certain about what we want in life, and ready to move forward.
Three hours after that trine, Mercury squares Neptune in Pisces. Unfortunately this influence is like a mini Mercury Retrograde. This new moon is not a good day to leave things up to chance. Give yourself extra time to do everything.
The moon herself will form a lovely trine to Saturn. This will help us stay grounded if any stress arises from the Mercury-Neptune square. We will feel more responsible and sensible than we would on a typical Gemini day. Having said this, Saturn in Aquarius is really different from Saturn in Capricorn! Still earthy and disciplined, but also fun and spontaneous.
Gemini rules close friend and sibling relations, so don’t forget to call or write your beloveds. Calm your mind and nervous system with pranayama and Gemini Yoga. In meditation, focus on the throat chakra. To find your personal moon sign, click here.
