Ready for a change and an exciting new beginning? Well, you’re in luck! The New Moon in air-sign Gemini will align on May 30, just in time for you to chill out and start on a clean slate this June. This will be the first lunation outside of the turbulent and unpredictable Eclipse season, so feel free to breath a sigh of relief! This lunation is all about getting curious and experimental with new ideas and projects without pressuring yourself to stick around if you change your mind. However, while Mercury continues its retrograde in routine-loving Taurus, its energy will be subdued, inviting you to take your time when testing new waters.
Each month, the Sun and Moon form a conjunction in the cosmos (a 0-degree relationship where they share the same point in the zodiacal wheel), creating what we identify as a New Moon. New Moons provide new opportunities and ideas on how to move forward that encourage us to start over and renew our perspective. The upcoming New Moon will align in energetic Gemini — the enthusiastic social butterfly of the zodiac — inspiring you to get experimental and intellectually explorative.
Do What Makes You Feel Alive
The New Moon in Gemini will encourage you to seek new opportunities to learn something about yourself and your environment. Get out of your comfort zone, ask questions, and diversify your experiences by switching things up. If you’re a grounded and consistent earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) or a passionate and fast-moving fire sign (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), you might struggle to take it easy and be light-hearted under this New Moon. Give into the relaxed nature of this lunation by encouraging your youthful spirit to shine. Get back in touch with activities and ideas that you postponed, and try to see the fun side of exploring new interests without the pressure of commitment. Have fun dating and getting to know new people instead of rushing to form a serious relationship. Encourage your friends to try out a hobby that you were too nervous to try alone — you never know what kind of memories you’ll make!
Try To Be Flexible With Plans
Mercury — the ruler of Gemini and the planet which governs mindset and communication — will continue its retrograde in practical Taurus — so this New Moon won’t be entirely free-flowing. Avoid impulsively diving into new experiences; do your research, have a trial run, and take your time to make up your mind. Considering Mercury retrograde is infamous for causing disruptions, it’s best to be open-minded and come with a backup plan just in case your plans fall through. Similarly, try not to force yourself out of your comfort zone if your soul is really calling for some time spent in solitude. As your social life increases and you’re pulled toward widening your circle and making new connections, you may feel the pressure to think before you speak, to avoid hurtful gossip and misunderstandings.
Overall, this cosmic energy is the perfect opportunity to work on your adaptability and become a pro at problem-solving. When setting goals and intentions for the month ahead, find the right balance between making a plan that gives you a sense of purpose and direction without being so rigid that it leaves you feeling restricted and uninspired.
