New Moon in Gemini

The zodiac is divided into four elemental groups: air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), fire signs (Leo, Sagittarius, Aries), water signs (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio), and earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). Within each of those groups, there is a cardinal sign, which possesses the strongest leadership traits, a fixed sign, which is the most steadfast of the three, and a mutable sign, which is most open to change.

Gemini is a mutable air sign, and air element traits include cognition, consciousness, ideas, innovation, invention, and communication. This new moon in Gemini at the dawn of Gemini season is here to help us to open our minds to change and creative thinking! Keep the following in mind as we pass through this double-dose of airy mutability:

  • A Gemini new moon is a grand time to ask the abyss for answers to your deepest questions—perhaps facing your deepest fears. Gemini carries an air of emotional objectivity, which comes in handy when facing feelings and “rumbling with vulnerability,” as Brene Brown would put it. Find a loose thread in your psyche and give it an adventurous tug!
  • Vision magic is particularly lucid when Gemini energy is strong, so switch off wireless signals at night for unfettered dreams. Words will pour from the proverbial Gemini faucet, so keep that journal and quill handy to immediately jot your dreams upon waking. An amethyst crystal will help you to relax more deeply.
  • Try your hand at something you wouldn’t normally attempt on this Gemini new moon, represented by cosmic twins. For example, if you’re a left-brained person, aim for right-brain activities and visa versa. If you’re used to making things with your hands, put effort into developing your writing voice. If you’re the calculated type, aim for spontaneity and wild expression! With bravery, patience, and this supportive new moon in position, it’s likely that you’ll discover something exciting and new about yourself.
  • Speaking of bravery, if you’ve never read Tarot or oracle cards, this new moon in Gemini would be an ideal time to start!. Whether you’ve been reading for a while or have never touched a deck, it doesn’t matter so much as the attempt does. Due to the energy of the Gemini twins, mirroring will come easily under this cosmic weather. Notice that what you discover in the cards reflects something of yourself, and let what you discover inform the seeds you plant for the cycle to come!
