The moon is on her way to being new this Thursday June 6 in the airy sign of Gemini at 7:38 am CST. New moons occur every month when the sun and moon are in the exact same sign at the exact same degree, this is known as a conjunction in astrology. For this particular lunation both the sun and moon will be at 16 degrees Gemini; on a side note Venus will also be a 16 degrees Gemini so the sun, moon and Venus are all conjunct. New moons are about new beginnings; it’s like a monthly cosmic reset. This is the time each month to set new intentions and make new wishes.

The day before the new moon, which in this case will be Wednesday, is known as the dark moon. Dark moons are a great time to spend some time alone, clearing out and getting rid of what we no longer need. It’s also believed that during the dark moon our psychic vibe is on high so Wednesday would be a perfect time to do a tarot or oracle card reading for yourself.

Keywords and the New Moon in Gemini: commerce, curiosity, versatility, connection, information, trickery, commotion, adaptability, urbanity, whimsy, flirtation, friendly, intelligent, moody, talkative and restless. With keywords like commotion, adaptability, connection and curiosity we can see that Gemini is quite the busy sign; there’s a nervous energy to a Gemini moon. So, during a new moon in Gemini we could feel restless and a little anxious. We can feel like we want some action, we want to do something, we want to get moving. Boredom is the “kryptonite” of Gemini energy. This hyped-up Gemini energy is strong during this new moon because not only are the sun and moon in the sign of the Twins but so are Jupiter, Mercury and as I mentioned before, Venus. That’s five planets in Gemini! With talkative being a keyword for the Twins, there is a real need to communicate with others. Our conversations could take on an added importance.

The Air Element and the New Moon in Gemini: Each astrological sign belongs to one of the four elements; fire, earth, air or water and Gemini is an air sign meaning thinking, analysis, communication, connection and curiosity are of utmost importance. Since the air element is so cerebral and analytical, we have the opportunity to view our life from an objective and intellectual point of view. With so many planets in Gemini this week our more rational selves are likely to trump our more feeling, emotional selves.

This new moon is the perfect time to view a troubling area of your life from a more rational point of view instead of being swamped by your emotions. Our feelings a certainly important but sometimes they can hinder our ability to make a good decision for ourselves. Where do you need to be more objective in your life right now? The earth element is weak during this lunation meaning we could be in denial about a certain reality in our lives. When the earth element is weak in a chart there can be difficulty in accepting and dealing with the realities of our everyday lives.

The 3rd House and the New Moon in Gemini: Each zodiac sign is linked to one of the astrological houses and there are twelve houses in astrology. Each house rules over particular areas of our lives. Subjects that could take on added importance in your life during the new moon in Gemini is most likely to center around neighborhoods, errands, merchants, brothers and sisters, short trips, transportation, conversation, buying and selling, phone calls, letters and e-mails. Any of these keywords could play an important role in your life during the new moon in Gemini.

Relationships are also very important during this lunation because of Venus’ conjunction to this new moon. Venus could also help us smooth over any tensions or conflicts we may be having in our relationships.
