Here's the chart for the Gemini New Moon.

Check our calendars for the exact time and date in your zone.


The sign of Gemini is associated with information, communication, duality, and mentality. The house holding Gemini in the natal chart shows an area of life where one can be inconsistent, argumentative, and cunning, as well as adaptable, perceptive, and socially adept. Gemini is a mutable sign, ruled by Mercury, with an emphasis on variety and versatility. Issues involving primary education, language, journalism and transportation become accentuated during Gemini.

Sabian Symbol for 26 degrees Gemini - "Frost-covered trees against winter skies."
A state of bare reality. The knowledge of the essential rhythms of nature and how they connect to reaching the essence of each individual being.

New Moon at 25 degrees Gemini 07 minutes:
This cycle begins with a major dose of Gemini. Curiosity is at a high. The Sun and Moon hooked up with Mars as the seeds for this lunation were being planted and Mercury, now direct, remains in Gemini for another 3 weeks. All of which translates to the mind taking off; wildly expanding and in need of direction. The quest for information is keen, especially if it can be used to ensure one's wealth and power. Fortunately, five days into the cycle, the Sun enters Cancer, followed by Mars three days later. Emotions will begin to surface, along with the desire for comfort and security, making it clear that a decision for change is necessary.

New Moon tri-septile Saturn:
Reality strikes, highlighting shared resources. Emotions run deep; communication is key.

Venus tri-septile Pluto:
Manipulations to gain or keep control. Restriction by design fosters a creative transformation.

Jupiter trine Uranus:
Creative drive blends with personal identity. Positive change relies on self-expression and innovative solutions.

Saturn semi-square Pluto:
A struggle for control. Be clear about your responsibilities and refuse to compromise beyond that point.

The key phrase for Gemini is "I THINK":
This is an excellent cycle for gathering information, engaging in remedial studies, addressing transportation issues, and communicating. Write letters, make phone calls, build connections within your community. Journal your thoughts.

Our advice for this cycle:
During this lunation cycle, you are gaining insights about what you invite into your consciousness, and thus into your life experience. Consider the differences between reporting and gossip, knowledge and intelligence, versatility and superficiality.

The quality of your thoughts shapes the quality of your life. Prevent negative thoughts from growing like weeds. Ignore random ideas that waste imaginative resources. Use the energy of this cycle to direct your mind into areas or projects that nurture and support your growth. Connect with others. Communicate who you are and what you love. Be sensitive with your words. Write poetry. Sing love songs. Listen and learn.

Questions to ask yourself for personal exploration and illumination:

  • How are my thoughts contributing to my personal development?
  • What triggers your curiosity?
  • When and with whom are you most verbal?
  • Are there words or phrases you use repeatedly?
  • How are your relationships with siblings and/or neighbors?
  • How might you communicate with greater clarity?
  • What situations bring out the student, teacher or debater in you?
  • Do you speak your truth?

Affirm: I am the language of Love.

Attune to the qualities of Gemini with 3-minute tarot meditation on The Lovers.

The Lovers depict the alchemical marriage of heaven and earth. The Lovers represent the union of opposite but complementary modes of existence. The lesson is to make responsible choices and to communicate Love.

Confer with The Lovers when faced with an important decision, to attract love into your life or to heal a relationship.

Quote for this cycle:
"Learn what is to be taken seriously and laugh at the rest."
~ Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) German-born Swiss poet, novelist, and painter.
