New Moon in Gemini 2024

On June 6th at 5:38 AM PDT, the Sun and Moon join forces at 16 degrees Gemini 18 minutes. This New Moon is also joined with Venus at 16 degrees Gemini, making for a stellium of mind bending love;) On this occasion we have an opportunity to reconsider all of the things, people, and values we care about and reshape our standards.

Gemini is a Mutable Air sign. This mutable sign rules the 3rd month of the Spring season, right around the corner from Summer. It displays signs of both seasons, one day cool and overcast and the next sunny and bright. The Air element is all about the mind and what we think about, focus on, and communicate about. Gemini’s glyph is the Twins, indicating the balance of thought from left brain and right brain. This sign is quite objective due to its Mercurial attention to detail. Being so flexible can bring a restlessness that can stop the

Gemini from staying with anything after its newness wears off.

It’s time to set up a new goal, as the New Moon is our chance to state the changes we wish to make in our lives. Due to the nature of this sign, your target ought to align with how you receive and deliver information. Are you satisfied with your current ways of communicating with others, or does it need a bit of pruning like a beautiful rose bush? Are your messages being heard, or are you speaking the wrong language? By this I mean are you changing how you relate to one or another by using words that stick comfortably with them, or just going on and on about how you feel? I’ve found through studying astrology that each of us have different meanings to words, and how they affect us. Some people are sensitive to verbage, and now we have our chance to really know how to speak correctly to others so as to be understood.

When Venus is in Gemini, you are more interested in a person's sense of humor and intelligence than in their physique. You like a partner who is mentally alive and who keeps you guessing a little bit, and you become restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, never changes or surprises you. Talking, sharing ideas, going places together, and learning new things together is very important to your happiness. You need lots of social stimulation, are something of a flirt, and like to have many friends of both sexes. A possessive, jealous partner is very stifling for you. With Venus in tow, we align our words with our heart. We care about others both objectively and subjectively. With Venus conjunct the Sun, you’ll feel loving and well-loved by others, and have a strong need for kindness, friendship, and affection. Your artistic and creative powers are strong and can be developed further. You will want to do everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Your personal appearance and attractiveness are also very important to you now. Add to this the conjunction with the Moon, and you have a very soft heart so others can appeal to your sympathetic, affectionate side. You especially care about the needs of children, mothers, and families, and you want a love partner who values marriage, home, and family as much as you do. Unkindness or harshness will offend you very much.

The Sun, Moon and Venus square Saturn at 18 degrees Pisces, giving this New Moon more to consider. The Sun in this relationship can bring feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, and self-doubt. You have a cautious, careful, realistic attitude toward life and are highly responsible and disciplined with regard to your obligations and duties. You tend to work and struggle more than you need to, and to take yourself too seriously. You are driven to overcome these feelings by expressing more love and compassion in your relationships.

Add to this the Moon squaring Saturn, and you may feel that you must do something or be something other than what you are in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. You’ll be very sensitive to criticism and easily feel left out or neglected, and though you may appear cool or distant, you actually care very much about being included. Because you are so sensitive, it may seem easier for you to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises that can occur when you let others really know you in an intimate, personal way. Your reserve and caution can make establishing a close emotional rapport with others difficult for you, and you become very attached to the few people you consider "real friends". You can gain inner

security and strength through periods of solitude if you view them as times to nourish yourself and develop your own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.

And the square to Venus brings a serious disposition where you find it difficult to enjoy yourself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. If there were painful separations in your early life, you will feel very cautious about becoming close to people and sharing your feelings. Though you crave love and affection, intimacy

is difficult for you at this time. You need to learn to love and value yourself before you will find happiness in love.

With these planets and luminaries grooming us for the future, cast your glance at yourself now, and how you can improve your loving communications. How you can step out more with a jovial heart and make light out of what otherwise seems dark and difficult. We are all here to learn together and with this New Moon and our goal setting we can all become more comfortable with each other. We all want to be heard and understood in order to join the human race in its higher version, so do what you must to improve yourself. And celebrate this New Moon with laughter, joy and light!
