Astrology is all about the movement of the planets across the zodiac, and the Moon is no exception. It takes 28 days for the Moon to cross the whole zodiac, and during that time it visits each zodiac sign for approximately two and a half days.
In astrology, the visit the Moon pays to each sign is called a lunar transit, as in ‘the Moon is transiting Gemini today’. The astrological Moon rules our feelings, instincts and intuition, so the transits of the Moon are very important to us, governing the general mood on any given day.
During each Moon transit, the astrological lunar energies will be expressed through the lens of the zodiac sign the Moon is transiting. This means that each Moon transit is slightly different – a Moon transit to Gemini plays out very differently to a Moon transit to Scorpio, for example.
Born with the Moon in Gemini?
If you were born when the Moon was in Gemini, we call that a natal Gemini Moon. Having your natal Moon in Gemini brings an emotional liveliness to your character, as well as a strong sense of fun. It also brings fickleness, however, and sometimes a creative ability to bend the truth.
The Transiting Moon in Gemini
Moon in Gemini transits are as fickle as the Gemini sign can be; sometimes these transits are great fun, but sometimes they’re hard to pin down, maddeningly changeable and a bit too superficial.
The core energy of Gemini as a zodiac signs is about communication, which is why the Gemini Moon transit is a messenger Moon. Whatever else goes on, communication matters during these few days – what we say and also, just as importantly, how we say it.
Generally speaking, the Gemini Moon often brings good humor and a party frame of mind, with sociable energies and nothing too serious. However, this energy can also be very restless, moving quickly from one thing to another before any real difference has been made. Gemini is an air sign, so the mood can be quite flighty, even if intellectually inclined.
At its best, the Gemini Moon can urge curiosity, discovery and the sharing of knowledge. On its not so great days, however, this can be quite an impersonal and unemotional energy, rather aloof and abstract.
When the Moon is in Gemini, these are things you could do:
- Have a party
- Make new friends
- Share gossip
- Write, speak or give a presentation
- Travel, especially locally
- Start many new things…but not necessarily finish any of them
- Pursue the latest trend, concept or person to catch your attention
- Make decisions based purely on logic and reason
