Thursday the sun and moon conjunct, and we have this year’s new moon in the first air-sign of the zodiac; charming and quick-witted Gemini.
After taking a deep dive into our own darkness during the Scorpio full moon two weeks back, easy breezy Gemini is welcomed with open arms. 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 doesn’t always have to be so serious. Embrace the bright and curious vibe of this changeable air sign, and make this a time to browse through all the exiting topics you’d love to learn more about, or just simply lean back and let your philosophies fly high.
Ruled by the messenger planet, Mercury – finally moving forward after one of its bumpy retrograde periods a couple of weeks back – the Gemini new moon is an excellent time for both spoken and written communication. Like the twins symbolizing Gemini, you will more easily be able to see both sides of a problem at this time, but on the other hand this duality could also make it a hard to make up your mind about anything.
This unaspected new moon isn’t just flowers and rainbows, though. With love goddess, Venus, square Pluto, the lord of the underworld, on the day of the new moon, a bit of heaviness is added to this otherwise light and breezy Gemini moon. Gentle Venus always seeks love and harmony, but with Pluto in the equation, it is more often than not a deep dive into the darker side of our relationships, and rooted in our insecurities of not feeling worthy of our loved ones’ affection, jealousy and power struggles may arise. And even though the Gemini vibes are flying high, and you want to blurt it all out the moment it comes to mind, see if you can start with simply observing whatever arises 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 airy and restless Gemini + Mercury energy can make you prone to mindless chatter, so be sure to carve out some time in your schedule to just be as well. Let yourself drop out of your head and dive down into your body; grounding yourself through our always loving Pachamama, creating space for stillness.
Remember though, that however frustrating these conflicting energies may feel, always trust that this too shall pass. Know that no matter what is triggered at this time, you are always worthy of love and affection. And no matter how confusing and conflicting the world may be on the outside, you will find all the answers you need within, if you can find the stillness to hear your heart and soul.
But for now, simply bring your focus to the opportunity for pure, new beginnings that comes with every new moon. Sun conjunct moon is your monthly energy boost, and with a new moon brimming with fresh ideas, don’t let the opportunity to harness the moons manifesting magic slip you by. Set your intention and reach for the stars. You are worthy of your wildest dreams.
