Thursday, June 10th, the sun and moon conjunct, and we have this year’s new moon and solar eclipse in the first air-sign of the zodiac; charming and quick-witted Gemini.
Chatty, easy-going and fun, Gemini is always welcomed to the party. Fluttering around, this social butterfly loves to gather bits and pieces of information about everything and nothing, without getting to the depth of any subject, reminding us that life does not always have to be so serious. Whatever is going on in your life as we speak, see if you too can draw on these easy-breezy energies surrounding you at the moment. Truly embrace the bright and curious vibes of this changeable air sign and allow yourself to browse through all the exiting topics you would love to learn more about, but never find time for.
Ruled by the messenger planet, Mercury the Gemini new moon is also an excellent time for both the spoken and written word. Just like the twins symbolizing Gemini, you will more easily be able to see both sides of a problem at this time, making you more diplomatic and tactful. However, before you get all exited, it is important to keep in mind that this duality could potentially make it challenging for you to make up your mind about anything at this time, so stay centered and true to your heart to reap the benefits rather than the pitfalls.
Be aware though, as the Gemini vibes are flying high at the moment, with sun, moon and Mercury all transiting this chatty air sign, this new moon may make you want to blurt out whatever comes to mind without thinking it properly though. And, as Mercury is retrograde (making us prone to miscommunicate) in Gemini as we speak, that might cause more havoc than peace in your life. It is therefore important to see if you can start with simply observing whatever arises in your mind without acting on it. Take a deep breath and think twice about what you are about to say, making sure what you plan to communicate is constructive and with some real substance, not letting the sometimes superficial and impatient Gemini energy get the best of you.
Also, be aware that the restless Gemini + Mercury energy can make you prone to mindless chatter. And however tempting socializing at summer parties, gossiping over your favorite drink may be at this time, make sure to carve out some time in your schedule to just be as well.
The current solar eclipse more easily brings fort Gemini’s shadow side, meaning that as easy-going Gemini may be, this changeable air sign’s fluttery energy can all too easily cloud your judgement and make you stuck in your head, leaving you both anxious and fearful, with no sense of grounding. Or perhaps you lean too much towards flexibility and playfulness, and fail to take a stand for what you believe in.
Consequently, if you start to feel spaced out, anxiety arising and thoughts spinning at a thousand miles per hour; make an effort to come back home to yourself. Take a couple of deep belly-breaths, and let yourself drop out of your head and dive down into your body, grounding yourself through our always loving Pachamama, creating space for stillness, and bringing forth the opportunity to make decisions from a place of love over fear.
Remember though, that when our own shadows come to light and become visible, this is our opportunity to work with them, embrace them, and grow through awareness of our own challenging tendencies. And that no matter what is triggered at this time, however scattered you may feel, you are always worthy of love and affection. Most importantly, no matter how confusing and conflicting the world may be on the outside, never forget that you can always find all the answers you need within, if you take the time to create the stillness needed to hear your heart and soul.
So, drop those shoulders down, and bring your focus to the opportunities for pure, new beginnings that comes with every new moon. With the airy Gemini moon brimming with fresh ideas, you now can harness the power of the mind as well as the manifesting magic of the universe. Set your intention and reach for the stars. You are worthy of your wildest dreams.
New Moon Blessings ♡
