About the Gemini New Moon
As an Air sign, Gemini is associated with words, communication, ideas and learning. Gemini is ever-curious, always on the hunt to know more and more, and can have a strong lack of discernment when it comes to sifting information.
However, at its best, Gemini can be great with facts, though empathy is needed to balance rationality.
Keywords for this Gemini New Moon are: communication, ideas, information, learning, facts, details, busy-ness, restless, knowledge, nerves, the mind and confusion.
Energies affecting this New Moon
Mercury is the ruler of this New Moon, and is well-positioned in the sign of his rulership, Gemini. In fact, at the time of this New Moon, there will be 4 planets in Gemini in total, including the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus!
That’s’ a lot of Gemini energy – See our guide to Gemini Season 2020.
Things may feel extra-heady, and we are in a very analytical, rational space where we demand to know every little detail and fact.
This can be excellent, but the problem is that Neptune, planet of confusion and illusion, is in a square aspect to Mercury and Venus, indicating that what we think we know, is obscured by hidden information.
We do not know what’s going on, in other words.
Hence, it’s ultra-important to avoid big decisions – making or having a strong opinion on anything until the mist clears. Watch what seeds you plant in the next few months for they may not grow in the way you quite expect!
Mars in Pisces also has a square aspect to the Moon & Sun which further baffles things and may have us barking up the completely wrong tree!
Let’s use the grounding trine of Saturn to this New Moon to tread carefully and with responsibility!
