In astrology, the New Moon is traditionally a time of fresh, new beginnings, and the start of a new lunar cycle. New Moons are a good time, astrologically, to set intentions and start new projects; there is a renewed sense of purpose during the New Moon.
When the New Moon is in Gemini, there’s a lively zing in the air, since Gemini is a fun-loving, energetic, intellectual, and playful energy. Curiosity is a key Gemini trait, so a Gemini New Moon is a very good time to develop new interests or hobbies. As a zodiac sign, Gemini is highly sociable and flirtatious, so this Moon is also thought to be a positive time for starting new friendships or relationships – dating is certainly a lot of fun during this time.
However, Gemini energy can be very fickle in astrology. This is mutable energy, which can be ever-changing and quite deceptive. It’s important during a Gemini New Moon to focus on sincerity, otherwise it will be easy to simply tell people what they want to hear. The levels of charm and likeability are very high during this Moon, but that must be balanced with honesty and authenticity.
Emotional levels are typically quite low during a Gemini New Moon, since this air energy is objective and abstract rather than personal or intuitive. Gemini energy is rational, so the New Moon is helpful for anyone who needs to overcome an emotional block or handle an emotionally complex situation.
The Gemini New Moon is a good time for partying and, since Gemini energy is highly intelligent, it’s also a good time for studying or learning a new course or skill. This very optimistic New Moon tends to gloss over potential problems, but its can-do attitude is one of its greatest strengths.
