New Moon in Gemini: the Power of the Mind

On May 30, 07:30 AM ET, we experience a New Moon at 9°03’ of Gemini, which brings our attention to the power of the mind and invites us to open our hearts to new beginnings, new experiences, and new opportunities. This is the first New Moon after the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus we had on April 30 and it closes the Eclipse portal.

When the Sun and the Moon align on the same degree of the same Zodiac sign, New Moons take place. The Moon has been slowly disappearing from the night sky, receiving less and less light every night: during the upcoming days, she will begin to be visible again. New Moons are new beginnings: when the Moon is Dark, it is an invitation to turn inwards, tune in with ourselves, plant seeds for the future, and set intentions for the upcoming lunar month. 

 

The Gemini New Moon invites us to Keep it Light

 

The Gemini New Moon inaugurates a phase of spontaneous action, instinctive exploration of life, and discovery of our desires that will culminate with a Full Moon in the opposite sign of Sagittarius on June 14. After the emotional and psychological intensity of the Eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio, the New Moon in Gemini shifts the vibe, adding cheerful and lighthearted energy to the current times.

As a Mutable Air sign, Gemini reminds us to keep it light, to take it easy, and to be curious, flexible, and open-minded. The third sign of the Zodiac correlates to the process of gathering data, collecting information, logically making sense of our surroundings, verbalizing our inner experiences, and communicating them to the outer world. Gemini inspires us to pay attention to the words we use, to how we articulate and verbalize our thoughts, and to how developing a conscious relationship to language can help us experience life differently. 

 

New Moon in Gemini: the Power of the Mind

 

The Gemini New Moon begins a lunar month during which there will be a significant focus on communications and exchanges of information. This lunation invites us to take care of the way we speak both with ourselves and with others and to keep in mind how powerful our mind is, and how deeply our habitual thinking patterns affect our feelings and perceptions. 

This New Moon reminds us of the power of our intellect, and of how important it is to take care of our mindset and of our attitude. During the upcoming weeks, we will have opportunities to gain awareness of our habitual ways to perceive, share, and interpret what is happening in our reality, and we may feel drawn to reflect on how working on changing our perceptions has the potential to change our experiences. 

 

Sun & Moon sextile Mars & Jupiter: Dynamism and Courage

 

The Sun and the Moon in Gemini are sextile to Mars and Jupiter in Aries, tightly conjunct, inspiring us to be courageous, daring, and bold. The emphasis on the Air and Fire elements increases our need for space and constant motion: it invites us to break patterns that generate inertia and encourages us to follow the flow of life.

These alignments support our energy levels and add a dynamic quality to the lunar cycle that is starting. Sun and Moon sextile Mars and Jupiter ignite our desire to learn more about how life works and make new experiences, inspiring us to discover new perspectives and get familiar with different systems of knowledge and ways of making sense of reality.

The Mars-Jupiter conjunction magnifies our need for freedom, inspiring a spontaneous exploration of our desires, and increasing our urge to expand our horizons. Themes of individual freedom and freedom of choice are likely to be in the spotlight. A drive to break free from restrictions and oppression, an urge to fight for what we believe in, the impulse to defend what is true for us and to protect our rights will emerge. 

Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries corresponds to a strong inclination to break new ground, start new chapters, and learn from our direct experiences. Excessive impulsivity could be an issue around this time, and it is advised to take care of not taking unnecessary risks.

 

Retrograde Mercury is the Ruler of this New Moon

 

The Gemini New Moon is ruled by retrograde Mercury, currently in Taurus. Mercury being in retrograde motion represents an invitation to question habitual ways of thinking, learning, and perceiving life during the upcoming lunar cycle. Mercury’s backward journey through Taurus inspires us to question our value system and put into discussion those ways of thinking that we hold on to as a way to feel secure. 

This transit highlights the importance of exploring the practical application our ideas can have. It helps us be realistic and pragmatic, rather than getting excessively carried away by our imagination without applying our insights. Retrograde Mercury’s journey through Taurus offers us an invitation to break free from outdated values, relating patterns, ways of thinking and doing, and security attachments that restrict our freedom. It is an opportunity to work on our mindset and to reflect on the value of our time and our attention, on how we invest our mental energies, on the kind of information we choose to consume and how that affects our state of being. 

 

Mercury square Saturn, Mercury trine Pluto, & Mercury conjunct the North Node

 

Mercury is very active these days, as it is forming a square to Saturn in Aquarius, a trine to Pluto in Capricorn, and is approaching a conjunction with the Lunar North Node. The Mercury Saturn square can correspond to a sense of being restricted in our communications, of not being able to find the right words to say what we feel, or feeling silenced by external sources, restrictions, rules, and regulations. This aspect also inspires us to reflect on whether our ideas and plans can have a practical impact and useful function within the social structure.

The Mercury-Pluto trine deepens our psychological understanding of ourselves, others, as well as of the fabric of the changing social structure. This alignment helps us notice what is unspoken, besides what is actually being said. Mercury and Pluto in aspect increase our capacity to tune into the undercurrents of what is taking place, sharpening our perceptions of non-verbal cues such as body language and subtle changes in speed or tone of voice.

Mercury is also very close to the North Node of the Moon in Taurus, which is currently in between Mercury and Uranus. The Mercury-North Node alignment emphasizes the importance of consciously expressing Mercurial functions, as these will help us detach from patterns and attachments that are holding us back from growing and evolving. This aspect highlights the value of critical thinking, discernment, and versatility paired with practicality, reminding us of investing our mental energy and focus wisely.

 New Moon in Gemini: Opening up to New Perceptions

 

The New Moon in Gemini inspires us to explore new ways of perceiving reality, new ways of thinking, communicating, and interfacing with our environment. Gemini thrives in situations with an abundance of variety. When this sign is emphasized, we need stimulation, we need many options, we need different outlets for our abundant mental energy. Whatever stimulates our interest and our intellect, even distractions, could end up bringing us new opportunities, more inspiration, and exciting ideas. However, it is important to take care of not getting excessively scattered and wasting our energy by indulging in gossip or consuming information that doesn’t add any value to our lives.

These days represent a favorable moment to begin new learning endeavors, embark on a new cycle of studies, a new course or activity that requires intellectual curiosity, commit to learning to play an instrument or improve our writing or public-speaking skills. During this upcoming lunar cycle, we are being encouraged to not be afraid to take things lightly, to dare to experiment, make mistakes, and try again. 

The Gemini New Moon invites us to expand our social network, to be open to conversations and debates with people who think differently than us, who have different interests, who have been through different experiences, and allow our lives to be enriched by these connections.

New Moon in Gemini – Fun, Positive & Loving Moon

On May 22nd at 1:39pm EST we will experience a New Moon, as the Sun and Moon come together in the sign of Gemini.

 

New Moon in Gemini: An Activation

 

Let’s imagine that the planets are not doing anything to us, but that they are inviting us to flow with their currents and open up to their celestial celebration. It’s as if someone is knocking on our doors, inviting us to come outside and play. This is a fun loving New Moon that has a lot of positive potential. 

new moon in gemini

Although the Sun and Moon appear to be distant and far out in the sky, what if they echo shifts that are occurring within us? What if the cosmos was an extension of our energy? What if we are made of stardust?

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” Carl Sagan

In that case, this New Moon is an activation.

 

New Moon in Gemini: Living Lightly

 

It’s bridging our subconscious and conscious awareness. It’s inviting us to illuminate our beings and fully radiate who we are. This is a time to live lightly. Our realities can be dense so this is not always easy. What does it mean to live lightly?

It means remembering that we are made of energy. It means charging and nourishing our energetic selves. We step into our energized selves when we listen to the subtle, yet strong, nudges from our consciousness. It means becoming aware of how the energy around us is affecting us. It means making choices that support our energized selves.

This activation wants us to take a look at our lives. It wants us to become aware of whether or not our choices enhance our energy, or deplete it.

This is an ongoing assignment and not something we need to perfect. Remember this energy is easy going. We don’t need to force harsh expectations or judgements upon ourselves.

 

A Fresh Start

 

This New Moon in Gemini is wiping the slate clean and asking us to start fresh. Like a wifi router that is lagging or not working properly, the best thing we can do is unplug and reset. That’s usually all it needs to get back up and running again.

Let’s take these moments to unplug. To pause. To reset. This New Moon is the unplugging. It won’t last forever but it offers a much needed space for solace.

As the New Moon passes we are asked to take an honest look at what we plug back into. Do these outlets allow energy to flow into our beings? Do they leave us nourished? Do they support us in living lightly?

 

Mindsets and Attitudes

 

Gemini energy is associated with intellect, logic and rationality. This energy often plays out in our mindsets and attitudes. Our minds are getting an operating system update during this time. We may not want to think about things the way we used to. We may learn something new that changes everything. We may decide to open our minds and be willing to rethink and shift our perspectives. All of this will enhance our energy and beings.

 

New Moon in Gemini: The Little Things

 

Gemini energy is associated with the details. It’s the how’s and the why’s. This is an ideal time to take a look at the details of our lives and whether or not they energize us. Taking a look at our habits, routines and lifestyles. Are they charging our batteries or draining them?

1

Gemini is the little things and this means that small choices can make a big impact. Although things like routines and habits can be overwhelming. Remember every little bit helps. This could look like drinking more water or ever taking more conscious breaths.

 

What We Put Into Our Bodies

 

Another way we receive energy is through our food. Food is here to nourish us and give us life but oftentimes it can be heavy and weigh us down. Is our food colourful? Are we eating foods that grow under the Sun, like fruits and veggies? These foods support our light bodies. Or is our food dense and drab? Are we eating colourless or processed foods? This is a time to observe the impact of what we put into our bodies.

 

Communication and Information

 

Gemini energy is connected to communication and information. It’s crucial to become aware of our sources of information and how they leave us feeling. Does our info only come from the external world? Are we giving ourselves space to listen to our hearts?

New Moon in Gemini: Venus Retrograde + Mercury

 

During this New Moon Venus retrograde (read Venus Retrograde article) and Mercury are coming together in Gemini. This is all about how we communicate within our relationships. What are we telling ourselves? What are we hearing from others? Are we clearly communicating? Or are we making assumptions and holding expectations? Honest and vulnerable communication is key.

 

New Moon in Gemini: Mars in Pisces

 

Mars is transiting Pisces during this New Moon in Gemini which means compassion is mandatory. Mars is the planet of action and as it transits the soft space of Pisces we are asked to be gentle. We may feel all sorts of emotions and not know what to do with them. Sometimes we need to take space before acting and Mars in Pisces is reminding us that there is no rush.

 

New Moon in Gemini: North Node in Gemini

 

The North Node has recently shifted into Gemini (read North Node in Gemini article). The homework is to remain curious. To ask questions and get inquisitive with ourselves and others. This New Moon in Gemini is begging us to open our minds. If we have stubbornly made up our minds we might miss out on a lot of opportunities.

Communication, compassion, and curiosity are the secret ingredients for the New Moon in Gemini. 

 

Fresh Air

 

There is a chance of overthinking throughout this New Moon in Gemini. This stimulating intellectual energy that can throw us off or leave us feeling confused. We have to stay aware of our own thoughts and do not participate in something that doesn’t feel right. We can take a step back from what feels cluttered or suffocating.

new moon in gemini

The Gemini New Moon is like a refreshing breeze. It’s time to open the windows and let some fresh air circulate through our spaces. Because this energy can be such a trip for our logical minds it is key to reach out for support if we feel we need it. Getting our thoughts out of our heads can feel like opening that window. Maybe we talk to someone we trust, or we do a brain dump and write everything out on paper. When we give our thoughts some space to air out, this energy can feel more manageable.

Our minds could feel like an internet browser with a thousand tabs open. Our job is to either close those windows, or bookmark them to come back to later.

 

An Open Invitation

 

Throughout this New Moon in Gemini set the intention to connect to that energized version of yourself. How do they feel? What do their routines look like? What are their habits? How do they fuel themselves? Where do they get their information? Are they compassionate and curious?

There are no right or wrong answers, there is only a willingness to expand alongside our ever changing Universe. This activation is an open invitation, but we must RSVP yes.

North Node Enters Gemini

north node enters gemini

May 5th 1:48am EST through January 2022.

The North Node signifies what we are collectively learning and yearning to understand. This is a significant shift which occurs approximately every 18-20 months. The nodes of the Moon dictate where we experience Eclipses. Since November 2018 the North Node has been in Cancer. This is a time to reflect on what we have learned since November 2018 as we now embark on a new assignment.

The last time the North Node was in Gemini was October 14 2001 through April 14 2003. Those years shaped our collective beliefs, attitudes and outlook of the world. These themes are now up for renewal. We are invited to change our minds.

 

Supermoon in Scorpio

May 7 6:45am EST

Every year, May’s Full Moon packs a punch; because it falls in the intense sign of Scorpio. This Supermoon is a time to look behind the veil and experience the palpable pulse of the Universe. Like our hearts beating within our chests, we have to still ourselves to feel it. Scorpio Supermoon energy is extreme and may have our hearts racing. This is the final of a series of Supermoons in 2020 and is sure to leave it’s mark. This Supermoon is all about trusting our intuitions and committing to our multidimensionality.

 

Saturn Retrograde

May 11 12:09am EST until September 29 2020

Retrogrades are not something to fear or dread, but they are a change in direction worth knowing about. Saturn’s annual retrograde invites us on a journey within ourselves. The responsibility shifts from serving the external world to listening to what’s unfolding inside of us. Instead of taking orders, we are now asked to be our own leader. It’s significant to note that on this day Mercury will be entering Gemini. This adds a layer of freedom and fresh air to the mix.

 

Venus Retrograde

venus retrograde

May 13th 2020 2:45am EST through June 25 2020

Venus retrograde is a time when planet Earth is invited to look at every facet of it’s relationships. This includes love, romance, family, friends and our relationships to ourselves. Venus retrogrades approximately every 18 months and is worth having on our radar.

She’ll be transiting the free spirited energy of Gemini. Gemini energy wants to be able to make up its own minds and we are being asked to think differently. Thinking differently about ourselves, others and the collective will allow us to level up.

The Universe is giving us a key and setting us free from the cages of comfort we have built for ourselves. We are learning change is not only needed, but with the right attitude we can feel safe and steady through the shifts.

Also on this day, Mars will enter Pisces; giving us an invitation to soften our masculine sides and soothe our souls.

To get a feel for the vibe of Venus in Gemini read our recent blog, Venus in Gemini: The Heart is the Place to Start (https://www.moonomens.com/venus-in-gemini/)

 

Jupiter Retrograde

May 14 10:32am EST

Jupiter has been busy shifting the systems of humanity as it transits the sign of Capricorn. So much has changed since Jupiter entered Capricorn in November 2019. As he stations retrograde we are given a chance to reflect and integrate these external shifts into our internal worlds.

 

Sun Trines Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn

May 15-22

In January 2020 and April 2020 we experienced some revolutionary transits involving Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn coming together in Capricorn. Read more here (https://www.moonomens.com/jupiter-conjunct-pluto/).

As the Sun moves through the Earth sign of Taurus, these energy shifts are going to start to solidify and take form. It’s as if a new foundation of cement has been poured for humanity and as the Sun connects with Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn throughout the week of May 15th, we begin to see that cement harden. This will bring a welcomed sense of stability for some or a desire to tear out the cement and re-pour it.

 

Gemini Season

Gemini season

May 20 9:49am EST

As the Sun shifts into Gemini, where it will remain for 30 days, we are given a dose of fun, flight and freedom. Gemini is an air sign and like a fairy it wants to fly around. It wants to feel free to let the wind take it. This is a time where that freedom and adventure may come in the form of ideas and aspirations. Communication is a big theme here. There’s a power in laughing, smiling and having some fun. Even if there is chaos around. Gemini season doesn’t want us to be so serious. Instead a childlike attitude is key. With the North node recently shifting into Gemini, along with Venus retrograde in this sign, this Gemini season will be a legendary one.

 

New Moon in Gemini

New Moon in Gemini moon omens

May 22 1:39am EST

The New Moon in Gemini is a time to get our stories straight. We all tell ourselves all kinds of stories. This is a time to take an honest look at the narratives that cycle through our minds and ask ourselves if they are really what we want. Opening our minds to a new story takes time and this is not something that needs to be forced. Instead, we will find a freshness from letting go of what feels fearful, flat or simply boring. Swapping them for a tale which comes from our hearts.

During this New Moon Venus retrograde will be connecting to Mercury. Venus retrograde is sorting through old relationship dynamics. Mercury represents our minds. This New Moon may give us flashes of inspiration and our minds may finally understand outdated dynamics.

 

Mercury Conjunct North Node

May 28 8:19pm EST

Mercury is the planet of communication, logic and intellect. It’s our minds and how they are hardwired. Often, Mercury’s energy plays out as clarity or conversely confusion. The North Node represents our collective direction. It’s the chapter we are studying, and the direction we are heading.

As Mercury conjuncts the recently shifted North Node in Gemini, we are given a chance to understand where we want to turn next. There’s an opportunity to wrap our minds around the directions we are travelling and if we want to stay the course, or make a change. We could feel confused about how it’s all going to come together, but in time the details will come together. This is a time to check in with ourselves and do an honest assessment of which track our trains are on, and if they will get us to the destinations of our hearts.

We hope you have enjoyed this article and we invite you to checkout and accept the gifts we have created for you for this beautiful new month of May. Have a wonderful month filled with joy, happiness and love!
