The New Moon in Gemini on June 13th calls on us to we have a unique opportunity to create change and become more adaptable to new ideas and new ways of living our life; to learn the inner strength that an increase in flexibility can offer us. Gemini is a shapeshifter and easily modifies obstacles and helps to activate the mind to embrace experiences that change us. It encourages us to shift the way we perceive our own lives through experiencing our lives through the perceptions of others.
Still, the Mind and Heart are inextricably woven together in this New Moon. Mercury, ruler of Gemini, is the master of the mind, the intellect, and the processing of messages. Mercury has just moved into Cancer, the sign of the Moon – emotional, intuitive, sensitive. The New Moon itself brings a shift in our emotional space from the stability of Taurus into the sparkling liveliness of Gemini.
This New Moon includes a conjunction of Mars to the south lunar node, signifying a release of something from the past. If we allow ourselves to introduce greater fluidity into our emotions and feeling nature, that release will be facilitated and the awakening that we experience will be that much more magical.
The New Moon favors new adventures, so you can take advantage of this time by starting something new. Plant a seed now and it will grow! Gemini most particularly favors matters of the intellect, but also anything that will help us to adapt and change to new surroundings or experiences.
