This New Moon is happening at 26° of Gemini on June 17th or 18th, depending on your location, and will be most potent for people with personal planets or the ascendant at 23° to 29° of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces). Normally, a Gemini New Moon with Mercury in Gemini would be great for research, gathering information & data, and getting the facts straight, however, with Neptune challenging these energies, this New Moon is best for curiosity, playfulness, and imagination. In my practice, the purpose of astrology is to give us the ability to see the divinity in the shifting circumstances of our daily lives to help us surrender to what we cannot change, the courage to change what we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. If you are interested to know what part of your chart will be impacted by any transit, you can book a reading with me.

To start this forecast I’d like to suggest some guidelines for making the most of the astrology. You can watch this Tiktok with a simple breakdown of do’s and don’ts or continue reading.

There may be a desire to find definitive answers, and complete understanding in what can’t be understood, but only glimpsed. Now isn’t the time to try and use our minds to understand capital ‘T’ Truth, but to talk about it without preconceived notions about what we ‘know’. If you desire to begin an endeavor that requires fact based information and data, be mindful of how you draw conclusions from that data and you’ll likely find that it resists clear boundaries and definition. Now is an amazing time for imaginative writing and art making. If you have had an idea for the fantastical bouncing around in your head, I would encourage you to put pen to paper and use this energy to begin to bring it into the world to share with others. Lastly, this New Moon has a signature of losing the thread of objective truth or reality, and for those who are interested in altered states of consciousness, it could prove to be a good time to ‘tamper’ with our perception. However, it isn’t advised to hold tightly to any insights received as they could easily evaporate like dew in the morning light. If you use substances to alter your consciousness, please do so with discretion and in safe spaces.

The details will avoid capture this New Moon but we should remain curious and flirtatious with The Great Mystery despite how it makes our heads spin. We could become frustrated when we feel that Spirit is cryptic when we ask questions, but we must recognize that how and when we come upon the answer is just as important as the answer itself. How can we ask the Cosmos to reduce itself for the pleasure of our own human comprehension? It resists neat categorization at all times, but our awareness of the gap between what is and what is known may destabilize our sense of “reality” at the outset of this New Moon. Our impulse at this perceived dissonance may be to dissect Spirit with intellect if we forget that it is also alive within and without us. It is not a vending machine for mental consumption. This New Moon invites us to be curious in our searching and to nurture our relationship with the All. Like two lovers coming closer to one another in the coy dance of courtship. We don’t dance to reach the end of the dance floor, we do it to enjoy the dance itself. Perhaps in the process of learning to be led by Spirit, step by step, we can have more fun in the Mystery of it all than in a neat and tidy solution.

Thank you for taking the time to arm yourself with the knowledge of astrological energies. It is my hope that my forecasts help you be empowered in moving in harmony with the planets, instead of feeling at the whims of the transits. Astrology can help us learn how to ride the waves of our transits instead of being bowled over by them, taken into the undertow. If you’re interested to learn more about how these tranists could affect you as an individual, you can book a reading with me. Happy New Moon 🌚
