What is a New Moon?
The new Moon is the first phase of the lunar cycle. It happens when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction (occurring in the the same place) in the night’s sky. This results in the Sun and Moon to combine their energies in the same sign of the zodiac.
During this time we begin the new theme for the cycle ahead and this is determined by the zodiac sign the New Moon occurs under.
Throughout the course of a calendar year we experience a new Moon in every sign of the zodiac which allows you to come full circle in what is learned during that time.
Tune into the New Moon theme each cycle and be open to the possibilities it presents. This is the time for brainstorming your ideas and making plans for the lunar cycle ahead. At this time it’s good to feel excited as we consider the new opportunities available to us.

What is the Gemini New Moon all About?
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and associate with the element of Air. This energy is connected to our world of ideas and thoughts and is very much in the head and mind.
During this new Moon we are being asked to pick up the pace and after the slow and steady energy of Taurus this could initially feel a little uncomfortable….unless you thrive on the faster way of life.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the messenger, which highlights communication and social interaction. Usually this would be a time for get-togethers and group activities however in the current climate we need to do this a little differently.
As social distancing and lockdown has encouraged us to be more apart than ever before there is the risk of getting used to this less social version of life so try to use this energy to explore ways in which you can remain socially available while staying safe at the same time.
For me right now, I am aware that my introvert is very happy. She loves the lack of invasion of my personal space and is currently residing in her comfort zone……where she appears to have taken up long terms residence!
As someone who has always felt a little socially awkward I know that being part of groups, society and community takes work and effort on my part and I plan to use this Gemini energy to encourage my teeny tiny extrovert to come out and play. This is so important for me as without regular outings my extrovert will dissapear and getting her back will be challenging.
Take some time during this New Moon to explore the energy and theme of Gemini, set some intentions for the cycle ahead and journal about your thoughts and feelings during this time.
I’ve added some journaling questions to get you started below.

Inspiration and Guidance
Check out the below inspiration, guidance and wisdom from some of my favourite authors.
There is a nervous energy about the Gemini new Moon which can affect already highly strung people to the point of hyperactivity or nervous skreiking. Concentration is difficult, perhaps this is a time to go out with friends rather than work late in the office.
Gemini is a social sign, and you most likely won’t want to say home. Now is the time to hang out with friends, take trips, and read novels or magazines. You may spend extra time on social media, posting wildly. Your extra keen wits and intelligence help you make decisions and plans Watch for brilliant ideas that may strike out of the blue – especially while driving or traveling on a plane or train.
