Gemini New Moon – Thursday 25th May
Gemini ignites our curiosity and the pursuit for knowledge and we feel encouraged to share our visions, creativity and brilliance with the rest of the world. Just as bees fly from flower to flower, pollinating seeds and flowers and enabling new growth, we too must pollinate our ideas and creativity to strengthen and firmly root what we have been working on over the past six months, in order for our projects to grow strong and sturdy.
Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, we are inspired and more inclined to selflessly share our knowledge, talents, skills, and visions in order to serve and support others. In the Native American traditions it was called Potlatch, where families would invite the community to share their food, wisdom, and goods, and expected nothing in return, because they fully trusted the natural abundance of life would return to them all that they had given.
Use this Gemini new moon to inspire you to speak your truth, share your ideas and take the risks needed to seed your dreams.
Here are my 7 top tips to help successfully surf this Gemini new moon wave.
Scratching the Mirror
Symbolised by the twins, Gemini reminds us that everyone is just a mirror for us, and this moon more than most, helps us to recognise that the behaviour we don’t like in others is just a reflection of the behaviour that is in us. When we can see others from this perspective we are more able to stop scratching the mirror, take personal responsibility, stop blaming and forgive. Let this moon illuminate those hidden behaviour patterns that are not serving you, by seeing them in the mirror of another.
Sharing your Dreams
Use this Moon to start cross pollinating your information and knowledge, by exchanging ideas and visions. Under this moon, we begin to see that when we share what we have, we are able to receive what we need, so become aware of all the interlinked and interwoven connections that help us to manifest our dreams.
Overcome feelings of Doubt
Don’t allow the mental clutter and FEAR – False Expectations Altering Reality – hold you back. This is the time to communicate what you need in order to move forward. Ask for help and support, and spend time with the people that support you in moving closer to your goals. Instead of feeling stressed when things aren’t going to plan, trust there is a bigger picture that we can’t see and enjoy the moment. There is magic happening all the time, it is only our expectations of what we want to happen, that keep us blind to it. The more adaptable you are this month, the more fun you can have.
See Both Sides
Gemini is the sign of the twins, and represents the constant push/pull of the heart and the head. This mutable air sign is the most versatile of all the astrological signs, and the most fickle. You may find that your mind keeps jumping like a mad monkey, and it may be hard to make a clear decision. Instead of negating yourself, recognise it is the energy of the twins of Gemini and remember to breathe if you find you are tying yourself up in knots. Sometimes we just have to surrender and let life make the decision for us.
Connect the Dots
We will feel more stimulated under this moon, and therefore, more able to share, dissect and become clearer on how to best move our projects forward. Gemini moons help us to connect the dots together and see how connections and meetings, which may have been seen as random, are now making sense on a much more profound level. A Gemini moon also helps us rejuvenate stagnating projects and creative endeavours by inspiring us with practical, stimulating and workable ideas.
Steer Clear of Gossip
Not all that you see is real, so get to the truth before making assumptions. Likewise be careful not to gossip or make assumptions about the behaviour of others, and talk badly about them behind their back. If you have something to say, be courageous and say it to the person, as you could find things unravelling pretty quickly and the gossip coming back to you in negative ways.
The need for honest communication will increase in intensity and now is the time to give yourself permission to say what is in your heart. For many of us our truth is bubbling up, desperately finding a way to express itself. The Gemini new Moon can also increase the mental clutter and rumination, as this air sign can get us overthinking. If you are finding yourself being consumed by negative or destructive thoughts, go out in nature, to calm your heart and soul.
This new moon coupled with the new galactic wave makes this month an auspicious one for change, which may mean upheaval of the status quo both personally and collectively…
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of Sara Paddison, (The Hidden Power of the Heart) :
“Being vulnerable does not have to be threatening.
Just have the courage to be sincere, open and honest.
This opens the door to deeper communication all around.
It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life.
Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us.
These secrets are what make us sick or fearful.
Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives. “
