Empower Your Perspective - New Moon in Gemini
Gemini teaches us that we always have the power to see differently.
On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, we have a New Moon in the sign of the twins. All New Moons are a time for New Beginnings, and in Gemini, this one is great for learning, communications, and playfulness. Most important, however, this New Moon presents us with an opportunity to see life from a more empowered perspective. Is life always working out for you? From an empowered perspective, yes — it is.
Shakespeare said “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” He was right: Every circumstance is actually neutral. Anything that happens can be likened to a “prompt.” We are the assigners of meaning to everything: A woman’s husband dies; she can see this as her life being over or as a new lease on life. A man loses his job; he can see it as complete failure, or an opportunity to go on to bigger and better things. It’s up to them — it’s up to us — we assign meaning to everything.
Granted, this can be difficult: For instance, we can’t expect a woman who just lost her husband to start rejoicing. (Though I suppose it depends on the husband!) When our expectations are dashed and we’re disappointed, it can be quite traumatic and heart-wrenching. But if we can start thinking that way now— “everything is always working out for me” —we can heal our wounds faster, reduce our downtime, and more swiftly leverage seemingly negative circumstances to our advantage. We can start by thinking, when anything happens, “how can this, exactly as it is, serve me?” This is what being a creator is all about. This is what being an artist is all about: Molding what you have to play with. Gemini rules the hands, which we use for everything we do, so use this month to start seeing circumstances as the matter you need to create whatever you wish.
This New Moon is at 22° Gemini, so note where that falls in your chart to see in which life area you can do the most molding or playing this month. Likewise, read the write-up for your sun and/or rising sign below to find out which area of your chart is lit up for you over the next 30 days.
Aries: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Third House of Communications. You can expect a new “air” cycle in your life — new ways of thinking, new places to go, new things to do, new people to meet and see. This is also a great time to move forward with any writing or creative projects you want to launch. Further, the Third House is very curious — perhaps there’s a new subject you’d like to study that you’ll want to incorporate in your communications with the world. Most important, the Third House is about the mind: How you think creates how you feel, and how you feel creates your reality — so do what it takes to feel as perfect as possible to maintain a most advantageous perspective!
Taurus: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Second House of Self-Worth. If you’re not happy in your job, now’s a great time to find a new one. Likewise, if you feel like you deserve a raise, now may be the time to ask. This transit is about increasing your self-worth, which may not even have to do with your job: It could mean just speaking up for yourself more and taking more responsibility for how you allow yourself to be treated. Make sure to activate your throat chakra more over the next month; singing, speaking up, and airing out your feelings are all ways to activate your throat chakra and increase your self-worth, which will increase your value in the world.
Gemini: Happy Birthday, Gemini! You have extra mojo to make things happen this month — so go for the gold in every area of your life. The New Moon transits your First House of Identity, so getting what you want is a matter of being “reborn” into that new person who would have it. This rebirth can help you attract more love, money, achievement — whatever you wish. Decide who you want to be, trust that decision and act like you trust that decision. Remember that the Universe doesn’t speak languages; you have to consistently experience and broadcast the emotions of having what you want in order to attract it. You have a strong mind, Gemini — use your imagination and your ability to play “make believe” to manifest the best year yet.
Cancer: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Twelfth House of the Subconscious. Take this time to process the last 12 months: what worked, what didn’t, what do you want to make better, etc. In allowing yourself this time to rest and reflect, you’ll be ready to take center stage and make the most empowered decisions during your Solar Return (next birthday year). Thus, over the next month, catch up on sleep, rest and relax, and to make the very most of this transit, program your subconscious: We get in life what we subconsciously believe we are by virtue of like attracting like, so listen to empowering subliminals and self-hypnosis (there’s plenty on YouTube), say affirmations etc. — this will give you a head-start to a banner year.
Leo: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Eleventh House of Friends, Hopes, Wishes, and Ideals. This transit will increase your confidence and urge you to ask “why not?” Why not go big in terms of your career? Why not manifest the perfect love, friendship, house on the beach etc.? The sky’s the limit for you this month, so feel fantastic, surround yourself with people who feel good about themselves, and go for the gold — that’s the element that you rule, after all! This is also a great month to find your “home away from home” — a group of friends or like-minded people that inspire your grandest ideals. Now’s the time to know that the sky is yours, so be like the sun and shine.
Virgo: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Tenth House of Status/Achievement. If there were ever a time to get ahead professionally, this would be it, Virgo! There’s a spotlight on you professionally now, so make sure you’re feeling great and getting your rest, exercise, etc., so you can handle any extra responsibilities with grace and aplomb. Likewise, if there’s a new job or project you would like now — like a better title or an impressive client — go for it! You’ll appear superior to your competition this month, so leverage your advantage! It may help to enjoy high places — the Empire State Building, rooftops, Ferris Wheels [!], etc. — as seeing life from a higher vantage point will inspire this month’s journey to the top.
Libra: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Ninth House of Expansion. Essentially, this is a transit about expanding energy in the world. This could involve traveling (expanding your worldview), publishing/teaching/public speaking (expanding your reach), or learning (expanding your mind). The goals you’ve created for yourself, both personally and professionally, require you to become bigger. Make a decision to not sweat the small stuff or let the inconsequential get the best of you — you want to use this month to think big be big and go big, which means being the “bigger person” or even moving on from situations that compel you to play small. A heart that feels good will inspire you to grow and grow and grow — your heart feels good so your arms are wide open to the universe — so make feeling good your first priority!
Scorpio: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Eight House of Rebirth. This transit is one that your sign will handle better than most, as yours is a sign that knows the importance of metamorphosis. This month, you may be called to say “goodbye” to something in yourself — like self-defeating thoughts or behavior patterns. Or it may be external; you may decide you’ve outgrown a job or relationship, for instance. Or perhaps you’ll want to hold on to the job or relationship, but transform it completely. This is the month to drop or transform things so that your life has the most heart and meaning — this will allow you to experience the fullest extent of your power.
Sagittarius: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Seventh House of Partnerships. If you’re looking to empower your partnerships — both personal and professional — this is the perfect month to do so. Likewise, if you’re ready to start a journey with someone else — again, also personal or professional — let this be the month you make it happen. Partnering up now will make you shine. Further, if you have an “audience” that you serve or perform for, the Seventh House could be them: What does your audience need from you? Does your cup overflow so you’re able to give your best? Take the time to feel as good as possible so that others will jump on your magic carpet ride!
Capricorn: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Sixth House of Work and Health. The Sixth House is about your day-to-day regimen, so this is a great time to improve processes at work, or score a new job altogether. Further, this is the perfect New Moon for you to start a new exercise or diet regimen so that you’re able to bring your strongest self to the world every day. With a new system in place — for work, health or both — you’ll find every area of your life more empowered. Don’t underestimate the power of a healthy lifestyle and feeling great when it comes to staying on top. And if your daily job has your grinning and bearing it too often, do yourself a favor and find a more fulfilling means to your end.
Aquarius: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Fifth House of True Love and Fun! The Fifth House represents anything you really love — fun, romance, creativity and children if you have any or want to. This is the month to let your heart shine and indulge the inner kid in you that likes to play and have a good time. If your relationship needs a reboot, this is the month to bring back the spark that creates an “eternal flame”[!] Likewise, if you’re looking for romance, use this month to make it happen. Every day, make it a point to keep things “light,” as that will help you keep your inner “lights” ON so that you’re guided toward true, complete happiness. Keep inspired, Aquarius — that’s your job!
Pisces: The New Moon in Gemini is transiting your Fourth House of Home and Family. This transit is really about internal emotional security, as you bring your “home” with you wherever you go. That being said, our physical home is where we go to retreat and regain our self-trust, so do what you can to make your home more comfortable this month, be it redecorating or moving if desired. Part of rebooting your emotional security may be about getting back to your roots; take the time to reconnect with family, or heal your connection with them if they’re not in your life. However you do it, use this month to feel comfy and cozy — with renewed inner peace, you’ll experience the world with new, fresh eyes.
