New Moon In Gemini: Inspiring Curiosity

We are having a New Moon in Gemini on June 3rd, 2019. It is initiating a 29.5-day Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month, however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will peak with a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 16th/17th.

We have been in Gemini season since May 21st with its ruler Mercury also in Gemini since the same day. As an Air sign it is socially and mentally oriented, while as a Mutable sign it is versatile, adaptable, and multi-faceted. Mutable signs are the last of each season which is a reflection of its changeable nature to help facilitate a transition from one thing to the next.

Gemini’s energy is curious, communicative, articulate, informative, busy, clever, and dualistic. It has chameleon-like properties and is the sign of multiple expressions or personalities. Gemini is associated with information, learning, writing, commuting, and agility. Negatively, it can be gossipy, superficial, inconsistent, scattered, two faced, unfocused, and lack emotion.

New Moon In Hard Aspect With Jupiter Square Neptune

Jupiter in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces throughout much of 2019. The first exact hit of this energy was in January, the next one is coming in the middle of this month, and the final one will be in mid-late September.

At best this energy can be inspiring and compassionate. Expansive pursuits such as learning or travel may be based around beliefs, faith, spirituality, and creativity. This can be great for mystical experiences and it can also be supportive for creative pursuits such as visual arts/media or music.

However, it is a square which can also reflect the challenging potentials of this energy. We can be unrealistic, overly idealistic, and experience confusion or delusion around perspectives.

We can more easily lack attention to certain details and it is also possible to experience more complications around travel or education when this energy peaks. For some people, overindulging in escapist or intoxicating behavior may also be a theme.

Considering that this New Moon is in a hard aspect with Jupiter and Neptune, it can really trigger  many of the potentials mentioned, both positive and negative. It can also reflect conflict around facts and beliefs. Communication issues and lack of focus can also be a factor. We may also try to overextend ourselves, or be pulled in different directions, but may be be faced with some of the potential complications mentioned above. This energy is strongest from June 8th – 10th.

Venus Trine Pluto, Mercury Sextile Uranus and Square Chiron

During this New Moon and in the days leading up to it, Venus in Taurus is in a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. This can be good for positive developments around relationships (socially or romantically), resources, aesthetics, values, or perhaps even financially as well. It can be regenerating, deep, or passionate. Our connections with others can be more real and less superficial.

Mercury, the ruler of this New Moon, will be going into Cancer almost a day and a half later. It will move towards a sextile to Uranus and a square to Chiron which peaks on June 7th. We can be more intuitive, inventive, and original. Positive surprises may also come up. Our communications can be exciting and stimulating. This can help us to think about things in a different way. Issues around our blockages and wounds may come up and/or it can be a time in which we have creative solutions.

Mars In Aspect With Saturn Sextile Neptune, Eclipses In Next Moon Cycle

Saturn in Capricorn is in a sextile with Neptune in Pisces which began earlier this year and will peak again in mid-June. This is great for taking a structured, disciplined, realistic, or committed approach when it comes to ideals, dreams, inspirations, creativity, spirituality, or even anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing.

Mars is moving towards aspects with these two planets. It will be in an opposition to Saturn and trine to Neptune which peaks from June 12th-16th with Mercury also triggering it. This can help us to want to act on our inspirations, however it is also possible that we can face obstacles and frustrations during that time as well. If so, it can potentially push us to change how we need to be assertive to ourselves. Also, Neptune is slowing down to go retrograde on the June 21st which can also reflect potential revisions,

The next New Moon in a month from now will be a Solar Eclipse followed by a Lunar Eclipse in mid-July. Eclipses facilitate changes in specific areas of your life which could play out over a longer period of time depending on different factors. Some are more significant than others for different people.

In the month leading up to eclipses we may start to notice their effects so keep in mind that any major shifts or developments might be connected to them. They can be challenging and/or evolutionary to help us in how we need to progress. I will be writing separate articles on them as we get closer, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive my content.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What triggers your curiosity and what are the types of things that you’d like to learn more about? Do you need to be more versatile? What can you do to be more original? What inspires you? What are your ideals and is there anything that you can be doing to push some of them closer to reality? In what ways might you be unrealistic?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time; however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment of it will be occurring at 10:02am Universal Time on June 3rd.

New Moon In Gemini: A Socially Expansive And Inquisitive Time

There will be a New Moon in Gemini on May 25th-26th, depending on where you are located in the world. New Moons initiate a new wave of energy influencing the upcoming month. However, it has a stronger influence over the first two weeks. 

Saturn is currently in a trine aspect with Uranus for the second time, which was exact on May 19th. Saturn has to do with commitments, responsibilities, structures, and discipline, and could even represent career focus. Uranus is associated with innovation, technology, insights, breakthroughs, and changes.

As these themes are interacting with each other, some people might need to make adjustments in their commitments and responsibilities in response to any changes. In most cases these will be positive, but if we have a hard time adapting, then it could be a bit challenging. This energy started in December and will conclude in November.

Gemini: Communication, Curiosity, Knowledge

Gemini is a ‘mutable air’ sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and thinking. Mutable signs — Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces — are always the last sign of each season and have adaptable and spreadable properties. Air signs, which include Libra and Aquarius, are more socially and intellectually oriented. When you combine these two sets of characteristics, you end up with Gemini.

Gemini is the sign of the twins, duality, and multiple personalities. It is also known as the ‘trickster’, partially due to these qualities. Gemini is the master of language and grammar, serving as both a transmitter and receiver of information and knowledge. It is the ultimate student and curiosity fuels its drive to learn.

This Moon cycle gives us an opportunity to work with these qualities more than usual and perhaps in new ways for some. This energy can also be more apparent externally through other people we interact with or observe, the information we come across, and through events and circumstances.

Venus Square Pluto, Trine Saturn, and Conjunct Uranus

On the day of and leading up to this New Moon, Venus in Aries is in an exact square with Pluto. This can be a time of intensity in relationships, which can play out through jealousy, manipulation, power struggles, and/or possessiveness. Hidden matters can surface during this period, but in some cases this can be a transformative and even sexually passionate energy. Some people may even experience complications and perhaps a need to change their approach to money and pleasures.

Venus later connects to Saturn in a harmonious trine, then aligns with Uranus. Saturn can bring some strengthening and stabilizing energy to relationships, money, aesthetics, and pleasures, and this is strongest on May 31st-June 1st. Uranus, which is more dominant on June 2nd-3rd, can represent situations or changes that can be unusual and exciting, and can also overlap and integrate with Saturn’s influence.

Mars Is Opposing Saturn in a T-Square With Chiron, and Sextile Uranus

Mars in Gemini is in an opposition to Saturn, which is exact on May 28th-29th. They are both in a T-square with Chiron. This can feel like a hurdle in the way we are asserting ourselves. It could play out through restricting energy imposed by other people or circumstances, or our own blocks and wounds getting in the way. What is required is either extra effort, a dose of realism, and/or the need to reconsider or revamp your actions.

Following the opposition of Saturn, Mars receives support from Uranus, which can help us to assert ourselves in new ways, which can be liberating or innovative. This can be very relieving considering Saturn’s influence leading up to this period, although it isn’t as strong and dominating. This will be more prominent on May 30th-31st.

Mars makes its exact square with Chiron on June 1st-2nd, which could again bring up challenges getting in the way. Depending on the person, it could manifest as surfacing issues regarding anger, aggression, and irritability. In some cases this influence could also have a healing effect on these issues as well.

New Moon Trine Jupiter and Square Neptune

Although this New Moon isn’t making any tight aspects with other planets, it is moving toward a harmonious trine with Jupiter in Libra and a challenging square to Neptune. These energies strongly influence the period of June 2nd-4th and also lightly playing out during the first 16 hours following this New Moon.

Jupiter involved provides a great energy for expanding our horizons, whether that is regarding our social connections, knowledge, and looking at different sides of things. Spiritual pursuits do well with Jupiter and Neptune combined, but the square to Neptune can also make things a bit confusing.

Mercury Sextile Neptune and Trine Pluto

Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is in Taurus in a sextile aspect with Neptune and trine with Pluto. Mercury to Neptune helps to stimulate intuition, as well as creative/imaginative thoughts and communications. This energy is strongest around May 27th-28th.

Mercury trine Pluto is great for facilitating deeper understanding and insight while dealing with practical matters. This can also help us to really focus our attention, even during Gemini season, which can easily be a scattered energy. This will occur prominently between May 30th-31st.

Making Intentions and Things to Consider

This upcoming month is a great time for learning and expanding your knowledge. Making social connections and getting around to connect with a variety of people and ideas can also be a good use of time and energy. Improving the way we communicate and write — perhaps even learning a different language — can flow well during this month.

The exact moment of this New Moon will be at 7:44pm Universal Time. You can click here for your time zone.
