On June 6, 08:37 AM EST, we experience a New Moon at 16º17’ of Gemini, an opportunity to access a new level of understanding of ourselves, relationships, and reality itself, and a reminder that many of the answers we seek can only be found when we silence the thinking mind and look within ourselves.

The New Moon in Gemini is especially relevant for individuals born with natal placements in the central degrees of Mutable signs. Those personally impacted by this lunation will have clear opportunities to renew their ways of thinking, explore new communication habits, and shift their mindset in a meaningful way.

New Moon in Gemini: Renewing our Communications, Perceptions, and Ideas


New Moons are the beginning of the lunar month: they mark a time of renewal and bring fresh starts into our lives, clearing the energy, inviting us to release the past and set intentions for the future. During New Moons, the Moon is positioned between the Earth and the Sun. The Sun is illuminating the side of the Moon facing away from us, hence the Moon is invisible from our perspective. 

On a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon form a 0º degree angle from our perspective on Earth, technically referred to as a conjunction: at this time of the month, the luminaries are placed on the same degree of the same zodiac sign. This month, they join forces in the Mutable Air sign of Gemini, bringing our attention to our relationship to learning, our communication habits, our inner dialogue, and our way of perceiving reality. The Gemini New Moon begins a lunar month centered around renewing our ideas, the way we communicate, and the way we interact with our surroundings.


New Moon in Gemini: A New Understanding


The Gemini New Moon invites us to question existing ways of thinking, communicating, learning, and seeing the world. This event invites us to embrace a creative mindset and gravitate toward environments, activities, and people that stimulate our intellect, curiosity, and desire to learn. The Gemini New Moon is a powerful time to set intentions about sharing our ideas with others, refining our communication skills, beginning a new writing or public speaking project, and embarking on a new learning journey.

There are currently five celestial bodies in the sign of the Twins: the Sun, the Moon, Venus, Mercury, and also Jupiter, which is going to remain in the sign for the next twelve months. Gemini energy is extremely prominent right now, which represents an invitation to prioritize learning and a reminder to see everything that happens in our lives as an opportunity to learn and reach a new level of understanding of ourselves, others, and our relationships.


New Moon conjunct Venus: Understanding Ourselves Through Others


The Sun and the Moon at 16º of Gemini are exactly conjunct with Venus and tightly square to Saturn in Pisces. The conjunction between the Sun and Venus corresponds to the maturation or “Full Moon phase” of Venus’ cycle that started in August 2023. On June 4, Venus crossed the Sun and began the second half of her cycle: this event facilitates a clearer and deeper awareness of our true values, feelings, relational needs, communication patterns, as well as challenges with self-worth and self-love that impact our relationship choices.

Venus’ exact conjunction with the New Moon suggests thatduring the upcoming lunar cycle, all these themes will still be relevant. We will continue the exploration of value systems, relational dynamics, and financial matters, we will continue to learn about ourselves through the mirror of others. We will have opportunities to establish new patterns, make new choices, show up in relationships differently, and understand ourselves better thanks to our connections. This is a powerful time to set the intention and commit to refining, improving, and renewing our communication habits within relationships.

New Moon square Saturn: We Can Be Our Harshest Judge


The Sun, the Moon, and Venus are also forming a 90º square to Saturn in Pisces. The square is an aspect that indicates tension, friction, and inner conflict. Squares create discomfort, which compels us to make difficult choices and change.

When Saturn, the planet of conditioning, structure, and boundaries, is activated by a square, we get to confront and recognize our tendencies toward self-limitation, self-suppression, and self-censoring. We recognize that we can be our own worst enemy, our biggest obstacle, our harshest judge. The gift of Saturn is that through the journey of overcoming our fears, insecurities, and self-imposed limitations we grow stronger, wiser, more mature, and more responsible. However, the process is often not pleasant and it requires hard work.

Saturn’s squares to the Sun, the Moon, and Venus offer us opportunities to gain awareness of how our tendency to repress emotions, our fear of vulnerability, and our low self-worth and self-confidence are impacting our lives, and motivate us to get to their roots. This configuration brings our attention to our relationship with lack and scarcity and invites us to observe how our conditioning and our fears inhibit us, hold us back, prevent us from loving and feeling loved, and affect our perceptions.


Mercury conjunct Jupiter and trine Pluto: A New Sense of Meaning


Mercury is the planetary ruler of Gemini and of this New Moon: studying its condition helps us gain a deeper understanding of the current astrological climate. Mercury is also in Gemini, separating from a conjunction with Jupiter and a trine to Pluto.

The Messenger is strongly placed in its Air home sign and in a harmonious relationship with both Jupiter and Pluto. Mercury’s strength supports our capacity to integrate, understand, and make sense, through the rational mind, of the process we are going through.

This configuration is an invitation to broaden our intellectual, physical, and philosophical horizons, discover life beyond our comfort zone, and deepen our exploration of consciousness, psychology, and the power of the mind. Mercury’s alignments with Jupiter and Pluto support our ability to integrate our intuition in our attempt to understand our experiences and find the deeper lessons they bring us. 

Mercury conjunct Jupiter and trine Pluto is an opportunity to find new ways of interpreting reality and making sense of what happens to us, going beyond the surface of what is evident and connecting with both the undercurrents and the higher meaning of what we go through.

Mars conjunct Chiron and square Pluto: Taking Responsibility for Our Power and Our Healing


As the New Moon takes place, Mars is in the late degrees of Aries, separating from Chiron and approaching a square to Pluto. The Mars-Chiron conjunction has been bringing to the surface wounds connected with distorted or unconscious expressions of masculine energy, inviting us to explore our relationship with anger, and encouraging us to acknowledge the impact of the past, feel our pain, and let it go. 

These days, we have opportunities to go deeper into our healing journey and see with clarity the purpose of what is emerging, the nature of the experiences we have and the feelings that arise. Mars’ proximity to Chiron in his home sign of Aries, together with the square to Pluto, is an invitation to be responsible for our actions and for their impact, for how we choose to channel our energy, for how we choose to react. The Mars-Pluto square reminds us that we are powerful and we have to be responsible for our power, as well as for our healing.


New Moon in Gemini: the Answers Within


The New Moon in Gemini highlights our need to learn, to understand, to make sense of life and of ourselves through our mind and our intellect. This event begins a lunar cycle centered around cultivating and giving space to our curiosity, giving ourselves permission to ask questions, exchange ideas with others, and explore new learning avenues.

Something to be mindful of during the upcoming lunar cycle is a tendency to intellectualize our emotions as a way to avoid feeling them. Distracting ourselves with many hobbies, interests, activities, books, information, social events, and conversations can be an avoidance mechanism that leads us further away from ourselves, even if our intention is the opposite.

These days, it can be helpful to make sure we take time to feel the emotional impact of our experiences, besides trying to make sense of them or to understand them rationally. At times, there is no need to understand, what we need is to feel, to bring our attention from the mind to the heart, and to remember that many of the answers we seek can only be found when we silence the thinking mind and look within ourselves.
