The Gemini New Moon brings an exuberant energy upon its arrival at 12:43pm PST on June 13th.

What is a New Moon?

A New Moon occurs when the Moon and the Sun share the same path and the Moon is casted in shadow, it’s face hidden from view. This creates a dark sky and is the commencement of a new lunar cycle.

What does the New Moon represent?

The New Moon is the first phase in the Lunar Cycle. As this phase ushers in a new path for the moon, it also ushers in fresh energy for us to work through challenges old and new.

How can I work with the New Moon?

Acknowledging and honoring the darkness of the Moon as a time to clear out and re-asses better equips us to accept new opportunities with open arms. When we can acknowledge what needs to be changed or emptied we can refill according to what makes us feel whole, our decisions then can become products of deep self-awareness instead of anxiety or fear.

What can this New Moon in Gemini help me with?

This month’s New Moon is your best bet for changing any thought patterns that have been holding you back.

Gemini is queen of the mind. As an air sign ruled by the planet Mercury, Gemini is all about information with a knack for seeing things from all angles unlike its Mercurial earth sign sibling, Virgo.

This New Moon is also saturated with the energy of Uranus, the planet of change and innovation, as it forms a trine to Mercury, the ruler of this Moon. This means that there is no better time to dig in to what thought patterns have been keeping you from moving further into your greatness. Now is a great time to find mantras and affirmations to replace those stale, old, negative thoughts that have never served you and never will.

The idea that anything is possible is easier to swallow now. Make a list of all of the things you would be doing and all of the people you would be meeting if you were at the top of your game and/or industry. Then, define the limiting beliefs that keep you from taking initiative on exactly these things and squash them.

The universe is here to support you in getting closer to your full potential, this week. Bear through the discomfort of disowning beliefs you’ve held onto for no other reason than the length of your relationship to them. Do the work to clear out all of the blocks that keep you in stagnation so that the opportunities this New Moon energy can help you manifest are as endless and grand as you are.
