New Moon in Gemini on 3rd June 2019

 

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our internal world of emotions, feelings, inner security, deepest personal needs, the unconscious and intuition. Our feelings of inner safety come from what is familiar to us.  This represents subconscious patterns previously developed which have become instinctual relating to our past. 

The Moon is also associated with our mother or our most nurturing parent, our inner mother, our inner child (Moon’s energy is strongest in childhood), home, ancestors or the past and family. It is receptive, responsive and reflective while protective, reacting instinctively and spontaneously.

When we look at our natal chart, the placement of our moon will disclose how we see ourselves, our emotional tendencies and what archetypal patterns are operating under the surface. It also tells us how we protect ourselves and how we make ourselves feel safe and comfortable always ensuring feelings of safety.

The Moon rules the sensitive sign of Cancer and the 4th House which is one of the cardinal signs that moves us from past to future on a moment to moment basis. This is due to the Nodes of the Moon; the South Node (past what is familiar) and North Node (future where new experiences await).  Depending on where your Moon’s Node positions are in your natal chart, your Moon position will tell you how you transition between the two or from past to future. 

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as it moves across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present. She speaks to us through our feelings and emotions.


The Moon is Reflective. 

Our feelings of security are created through consistent and familiar behaviour, reflecting to us a constant reality.  Because of these feelings of  familiarity, it produces a sense of belonging that nurtures and protects us in turn giving us inner security. 

The Moon in our natal chart will tell you how you see yourself and how you nurture yourself emotionally.  As we go through life we are continually in a process of evolution and it is through our emotional body we grow and mature, not through our intellect.  It is no wonder that the Moon’s natural home is in Cancer, 4th House where we seek our inner security with the opposite of Capricorn being where we seek outer security and maturity.


Dysfunctional Side of The Moon

Because the Moon symbolizes our feelings it’s important to address the shadow or dysfunctional side of the Moon as well.  Best described as emotionally self-indulgent, timid, wishy-washy, over reactive, moody, lazy, indecisive and imaginative.  Pure emotion.   If unhealthy or distorted imagination is fuelled by pure emotion it leads to feelings of emptiness and irrationality.


About the Sign of Gemini

Gemini can never have enough information.  Gathering information and facts wherever it can in reading, listening, talking or writing, Gemini has an insatiable appetite for knowledge.   It is the most talkative sign of the zodiac, full of facts on a variety of topics and a lightning fast sharp wit, it loves to flirt while being great conversationalists.

Because Gemini wants to gather as much information as it can, it can get so much it can get lost in it all and find it hard to make up their minds.

Gemini is fun to be around, bouncing around from one topic to another, others can find it a challenge to keep up as they can sometimes speak so incredibly fast their words roll into each other, and they don’t finish their sentence before they go off on another thought. 

Gemini is easily distracted, not good listeners and find it hard to finish what they started.  Gemini has an intense curiosity and will ask many questions, this can come off sometimes as being nosey, but it is because they are curious and interested and want to know all.

One of Gemini traits is contrariness, going opposite to what is said as they can see both sides. This can be challenging to be around, they will find the weakness in the information and sometimes it will seem they will just do it out of habit.  

One of the great abilities Gemini has is to take a lot of information and organise words in an orderly fashion. Gemini has incredible problem-solving abilities, if one way doesn’t work, they will have plenty of ideas of how to tackle a problem and can adapt to any situation.

The most challenging thing for Gemini to do is relax the mind, focusing your mind, deep breathing and yoga help greatly with slowing down all of Gemini’s rapid thinking.

How the New Moon in Gemini Coincides with Your Cycle

Week 1:

A welcome feeling of relief describes this week perfectly creating a space or window of time to recover from the previous week.  The New Moon in Gemini helps to expose any lies or untruths to you especially in what you say to yourself, so expect things to be revealed.  Your internal dialog if harmful will not nurture you at all, so look at your feelings to give you inner guidance instead of the relentless internal chatter that could take you into a downward spiral.  Make a commitment to nurturing yourself through your own internal dialog.

Week 2:

This is the week your thinking will be at warp speed with communications, brainstorming with ideas to solving problems giving you unlimited solutions.  Your wit, humour and communicative ability will make you the life of the party making you fun to be around. Healthier, positive thoughts result in feelings of being more confident that will give you internal nurturing.  If you do have something complicated your trying find a solution to, write it down and let your mind wander to experience the many options and new ideas to help you.  A great week for light-heartedness and laughter.

Week 3: 

This week you may want to take time to be alone with your thoughts as a mini PMS occurs in this week with unhealthy thoughts creeping in resulting in corresponding feelings.  This week can accompany the doldrums so having activities such as journaling, writing things down and looking at how you inwardly communicate to yourself.  Calming the thoughts and the mind (feeling body) is very important so meditation will help enormously during this week.

 Week 4:  

Being aware of how your state of mind can be severely affected due to depleting hormones effecting your emotional state in this week. Scattered thoughts with accompanying emotions can be like a roller coaster ride.  If you are one to speak from your emotions be mindful, your words can be tender or hurtful. Because Gemini also rules short trips it would be an ideal time to take yourself out of your surroundings and go somewhere for the day, even if it’s to the park or the beach.  Being amongst nature has a profound effect on us slowing everything down or go see a funny movie, laughter is the best medicine for everything.
