New Moon in Gemini – June 2018
We continue with the Sun in Gemini – lots of info and activity, which can be lively, social and fun – or you can feel like you’re in a three-ring circus if you over-schedule yourself! A lot of chatter, for better or worse. Mind your manners and mind what you think and say. A careless remark, email, post or tweet can cause harm (as you know).
Mercury (communication) is in it’s own sign of Gemini until Tues, when it moves into sensitive Cancer. This will change the tone of conversations, allowing for greater emotional connection and expression of feelings. Good.
On Wed, June 13th we have a New Moon in Gemini, which is the time for New Beginnings re: anything you want to increase, create or develop in your world. After the Moon is New, take action to activate your intentions to make them real.
Intentions are a Mercury/Gemini thing (ideas) – and taking actions brings them into form. This is how you build and create what you want in your life. It can be tempting to overthink plans and avoid taking actions, which actually feeds doubt if you think you have to get it “just right” before you can make a move. Every action you take counts, so do something to be proactive in the New Moon energy (plus 24 hours after).
As we approach the New Moon in Gemini (thinking, writing, speaking, classes, community, short trips, siblings), it’s a good time to get clear about your intentions for the coming month and what you want to create in your life. Vision, journal, brainstorm, but focus on something meaningful for you!
Just after the New Moon, Venus moves into Leo, sign of creativity and self-expression. Venus in Leo needs appreciation and enjoys grand gestures of love (flowers, trips, the finer things). It’s the idea of being special – and in love, being romanced. I suggest you use this energy to do something nice or indulgent for yourself within your parameters. It’s good for your spirit!
As Venus moves into Leo it squares Uranus, creating a different energy altogether. Venus loves harmony, and Venus square Uranus (change) loves excitement, stimulation, something out of the box!
Venus square Uranus can create “love at first sight” that lasts until the excitement wears off and then, done. That can be with a person or hairdo (Venus is your style) or other thing you fall in love with, so be mindful. If you’re going for excitement, have fun, be careful and don’t do anything permanent that you can’t undo (ex: tattoo).
Reminder: take actions now because Mars will be going Retrograde later in the month and you don’t want to have to push against the flow when beginning. Course correcting is fine with Mars Retro, so just begin what you know you want to create.
Take good care of yourself and those around you. We need care now more than ever.
Namaste, friends. We’re on a mission…
