Hello lovely ones and happy almost New Moon!
The New Moon falls at 12 degrees of Gemini and takes place on Monday June 3 at 3.02am PT (adjust for your timezone as always).
Check your Soulstrology zodiac guide below to see where this New Moon falls in your unique chart.
I get asked this question a lot, so wanted to reiterate this point now, which is, regardless of if you have any planets in a sign, a New/Full Moon will always fall somewhere in your chart.
If you’re new to Soulstrology I understand it can be confusing to try and read your chart and that is why we always provide a guide as to every transit or moon cycle so you can simply check for your Sun and Rising sign and know that regardless of what your chart appears to show, the guide will tell you where a particular transit or lunar event is taking place in your unique chart.
If you’re more of a Soulstrology pro (and don’t worry for beginners, everyone gets there slowly!) then you can check where exactly 12 degrees of Gemini falls in your chart, as well as any planets or house cusps in your chart which are between 10 and 14 degrees of Gemini as these will be activated by the New Moon.
Onward to the general themes which are impacting each of us at this New Moon which we must all consider when we are working with the New Moon energies over the next lunar cycle.
In the natural zodiac Gemini rules the third house. The house of communication, our mind, our thought process and our intellect. Early education is also ruled by this house, as well as our relationships with our siblings and our neighbors/local community. Short trips and travel (more locally, within our own country and/or state) are also covered by this house.
As the celestial energies catch up with the times, Soulstrology tells us that this house is also the house of our voice/our communication in all forms and all related projects - so this can cover our written voice, spoken, song, social media, blogs, an app etc.
Gemini, like Virgo, is ruled by Mercury, so this sign’s energies are very much cerebral and mentally focused as opposed to physically focused.
This is exacerbated by the fact that Gemini is an air sign. Air signs tend to be the thinkers of the zodiac, they are both intellectual and curious and are good at abstract, rational thinking.
Gemini is also a mutable sign, and is known as the sign of the ‘twins’, reflecting the duality of a Gemini.
They often have two very different sides to their personalities and sometimes this can be their shadow - the two faces of Gemini or rather being ‘two faced’ with a negative connotation.
However, this duality also extends to their capabilities and means they are often skilled in multiple areas of expertise.
Where each of us has Gemini ruling our unique charts, and any planets we may have in Gemini, are where we too may have the traits described above and the capability of duality.
This is something that we will be exploring further in our Soulstrology Scopes with our cosmic coaching and custom ritual, but for now, let us focus on the aspects of this particular Gemini New Moon and the unique Soulstrology theme.
As you hopefully know by now at a New Moon the Sun and Moon join together (called a conjunction) in the same sign of the zodiac. So when we refer to the New Moon we are referring to the joint energies of both the Sun and Moon.
Often at a New Moon aspects are made by both the Sun and Moon together to other planets and we explore these and what they mean for that specific New Moon and lunar cycle.
Sometimes the New Moon does not make any specific aspects to other planets but other celestial bodies are making significant aspects to each other at this time.
Soulstrology tells us that either the aspects made to a New Moon, or other specific celestial aspects made at the time of the New Moon offer us the unique energies of that New Moon and serve as a guide as to how best to work with the lunation (this means the lunar cycle which the New Moon is bringing).
This New Moon itself does not actually make any specific strong aspects but there are some very interesting aspects made by other celestial bodies, namely Saturn, Neptune, Venus, Pluto and the North node (all big cosmic players!) which create the Soulstrology theme for this Gemini New Moon of June 2019.
Venus (in grounded earthy Taurus) makes a very harmonious trine aspect to powerful Pluto in Capricorn.
This results in a flowing energy regarding finances, relationships, creativity, socializing and transformation, soulful power and ultimately change.
This is a very grounded energy (thanks to the two Earth signs of Taurus and Capricorn) and is also a very powerful energy as Venus is one of the cosmic benefics and Pluto is the cosmic powerhouse.
Meanwhile stern Saturn is in Capricorn (his home position where he excels) and as we all probably know by now is the cosmic headmaster who can give us a hard time, but also offers us great structure and helps us climb the greatest heights, is making a beautiful sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune in Pisces.
While this aspect is between two very different signs and planets - Neptune is boundless and vast - Saturn is all about boundaries and structure - Capricorn is a grounded, logical Earth sign - Pisces is an emotional, sensitive, intuitive water sign, the sextile aspect means that these two energies can work very well together - bringing together the best of both.
This aspect is about being both practical and creative, having a dream and being a visionary but also taking the steps to actualize that dream. Following your intuition, your gut, your heart, your feels, but keeping your head.
Understanding that pragmatism and practicalities play as important part in the manifestation of our vision as the dream itself.
Next is the lovely trine aspect between Neptune in Pisces and the North Node in Cancer.
As you probably know by now, the North Node indicates our destiny and future.
The North Node is what we are supposed to step into, what may not always come easily to us but what is our fate and will bring us blessings, so long as we reach to step into it - which is not always easy as it is outside of our comfort zone.
Through this trine aspect we can harness the creative, spiritual dreams of Neptune and turn them into reality (through the assistance of Saturn) so we step into our future (the North Node).
Neptune makes a helpful sextile aspect to the South Node.
The South Node represents our past, what we are used to, what comes easily, what is our comfort zone, as well as sometimes our past karma and baggage.
Through this harmonious Neptune/South Node aspect we can harness the energies of the past (South Node) to help us create our future (North Node) and to make our dreams (Neptune) a reality (Saturn).
All of this brings me nicely to the Soulstrology theme of this Gemini New Moon, that success and stature comes by walking our talk….
As we all hopefully know by now, Gemini is the thinker and communicator. But what we may not know is that the shadow of Gemini can be to be all talk but not enough action.
Ultimately we are what we do, not what we say we will do.
We can talk the talk, but if we don’t walk it, if we don’t take practical action and steps towards our goals, we will never achieve them.
This may seem obvious and we may not even realize that we are not walking our talk, but for many of us, this is the block and gap between where we are and where we want to be.
Soulstrology tells us that the aspects of this New Moon ask each of us to be honest about where we are at, and where we want to be.
For us to understand that there are powerful planetary energies at play which assist us in pushing forwards into the future we desire, but for us to equally understand that we must take action, we must find the bridge between dreams and practicalities, in order to make our visions a reality.
Transformation is a regular theme of our Soulstrology work and what it looks like will be different for each of us and as always our Soulstrology Scopes will help us achieve this.
For those of us willing to do the work, we may find we enjoy the benefits over the next lunation, with the Solstice providing a powerful pre-eclipse portal.
Success and stature awaits, however that may uniquely look for each of us, but we must walk our talk to get there.
More to come on your Soulstrology Scopes soon….
