The week ends with the New Moon in Gemini, the sign of duality. Gemini rules communications which means this could be a big weekend for talk, conversation and negotiations.

So, find yourself a friend (or an enemy), have those all important heart-to-hearts and use the dynamic New Moon energy to start the ball rolling, initiate a conversation and get things moving.

Here’s all you need to know about this month’s New Moon. Seven ways to make the most of this lively Gemini star sign energy.

1. Be still during the exact time of the New Moon. It’s ideal for meditation, active gratitude and thinking ahead.

2. Make a wish on the crescent moon. This will appear in the night sky a day or two after the New Moon date (see below). When you first catch sight of the new moon, set your intentions. Write them down, say them out loud. This is the time to use the pro-active energy of the New Moon.

3. Pick up the phone, send an email, fire off a text. This is an excellent opportunity to book an appointment, line up a meeting or interview or apply for a job or new role. Gemini’s nature is quick and lively. Use witty repartee to get yourself noticed.

4. Read a book, do puzzles, study something new, go back to school. Being curious is a key Gemini trait. Research proves that using your mind and brain power keeps you youthful and engaged in life. Master a language, hone your skills, keep learning.

5. Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury, is also in Gemini during the New Moon & conjunct Venus, a symbol of social connections. However, it won’t be long before Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th and Mercury enters its shadow phase at the beginning of June. Another reason to be spontaneous and speedy. Ideally, make your key moves over the next fortnight.

6. Gemini rules siblings and neighbours, also your local community. Which people are foreground in your life and how can you use your connections to benefit one another? Who can you reach out to this weekend, who can you help?

7. Question everything. Gemini is one of the mutable star signs, changeable and restless. Most Geminis have a flip side to their nature and don’t always say what they mean. Doing nothing isn’t an option right now. Instead, be curious, question everything, don’t believe everything you hear. Gemini’s the trickster who keeps everyone on their toes and Neptune is prominent all month with its themes of fantasy & unreality. Don’t be fooled!

8. Where’s Saturn in your chart? Saturn in Aquarius makes a supportive trine aspect to the Gemini New Moon. And, Saturn is at 1 degree Aquarius, close to where the significant Jupiter-Saturn conjunction takes place later this year on December 21, 2020. Therefore, this is the time to lay the groundwork for what lies ahead. What you start right now can sow seeds that will flourish later in the year.

9. Look upwards. When you’re searching for the crescent Moon in the night sky this weekend, look for Venus & Mercury. Venus has been a bright star for some time but is dipping closer to the horizon as she prepares to head into the underworld and return as a morning star. If you look west just after sunset, you may be able to find Venus close to the crescent Moon and a fainter star, Mercury. They are all close together – May 24th is the best date for stargazing.

Here are the areas of your life to make a fresh start, communicate & explore new ideas:

  • Aries – local community, ideas, communications
  • Taurus – money & values
  • Gemini – personal goals, image & identity
  • Cancer – your inner world, retreat & self-care
  • Leo – friends, groups & wider society
  • Virgo – career & status
  • Libra – your place in the world, study & education
  • Scorpio – joint finances & sexuality
  • Sagittarius – love & relationships, contracts
  • Capricorn – job & health, service to others
  • Aquarius – birth i.e. kids, romance, creative projects
  • Pisces – home & family

New Moon in Gemini, May 22, 2020

Staying tethered to reality is going to be a major challenge on the New Moon at 02° 05′ Gemini, 22 May 2020, 10:39 AM PDT. The luminaries themselves benefit from a trine to Saturn in Aquarius which will hopefully keep them from sliding too far off course. However, they are also square to slippery Mars in Neptune ruled Pisces, who is not noted for being direct under the best of circumstances. This situation brings the duality of Gemini to our attention with Gemini’s ability to gather and disseminate good information on one side, and on the other, it’s gift for telling half-truths and outright lies in a believable manner. The resulting confusion is pure Neptune.

The real source of misinformation is Mercury-Venus conjoined in Gemini exactly square Neptune in Pisces. Usually a Mercury-Venus conjunction in verbal Gemini would be wonderful for articulating our feelings but not this time. Declarations of love can range from way over the top to completely incomprehensible. Forget making smart decisions about money! If at all possible hold off on those for now, and if not, then check and double check the facts. Scam artists are probably going to be out in full force and drowning us in a deluge of words, all sounding wonderful but very short on real meaning.

Mars in Pisces is in much the same position as the luminaries since he has both flowing and tense aspects to contend with. A sextile to Uranus in Taurus is perfect for finding innovative ways to get from point A to point B, whilst the square to the Sun and Moon in Gemini only adds to the lack of direction. The best chance we have to make sense of things is to use our emotional intelligence and intuition rather than logic and reason. We could get hit with so many conflicting stories our minds will want to shut down due to info overload.

Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn are essentially on the sidelines for now, at least on the surface of things. Waxing inconjuncts to Mercury in Gemini will come into play in a few days, revealing hidden information bound to cause plenty of pain to those who bought into the delusions generated by Neptune and company.

At first glance it might seem like happy days on here again on this New Moon in Gemini. It’s OK to enjoy the feeling as long as we hold firm to the realization this is more fantasy than reality. Besides, it won’t be long before the fantasy begins to crumble around the edges as Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, is inconjunct first Pluto, then Jupiter in Capricorn. The inconjunct to Pluto takes place May 24 and the one to Jupiter on May 26. Since stern Saturn ruled Capricorn has no patience for foolishness and Pluto is noted for unearthing unpalatable facts, all it will take is Jupiter’s inclination to speak up forcefully to start clearing Neptune’s fog away. Nonetheless, the denial habit is very hard to break and many will cling to their fantasies until the bitter end. Sigh. As always practice patience and treat everyone in our lives with kindness and tolerance.
