New Moon in Gemini ~ June 12, 2010

This month's New Moon in Gemini occurs on June 12 at 7:15 a.m. EST. New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This new moon highlights Gemini qualities (cerebral, social, connections) and 3rd house themes (information, thought, ideas, communication). Gemini is governed by the planet Mercury, who just recently began his transit in Gemini.

In Gemini, the Moon is energetic, excitable, gregarious, an extrovert who opts for logic over emotions. The Gemini-New Moon beautifully linked to imaginative, insightful Neptune-rx to help expand our mind (Gemini), heart (Moon) and soul (Sun). Elsewhere in the sky, Jupiter and Uranus remain very close to each other at Aries Point in the sign of Aries, while Venus and Saturn get along famously -- opportunities and support from unusual sources; chance to make dreams a reality; becoming aware of restrictions and using that knowledge for practical planning; solidifying plans; strengthening or renewing relationships.

This new moon occurs at 22 degrees of Gemini. Those born within 3 days of June 13 or December 12; or have natal planets/house angles on or around 22 degrees of mutable signs may feel the effects of this new moon stronger than others.

For me, as a Cancer-Sun, this New Moon falls in my solar 12th house (subconscious, what's hidden); as a Virgo-rising, it falls in my natal 9th house (expansion, personal growth) and blends energies with both my natal Mercury (mind) & natal Midheaven (career/goals), while challenging my natal Pluto (power) & natal Ascendant (potential). Holy moly! For me, this new moon phase is clearly about rising closer to my potential with regards to professional pursuits and aspirations by exposing what lies within the subconscious to make me more mindful of them. By pushing past my metaphorical 'boundaries', I am able to expand my mind and 'see' the bigger picture so, I can plan accordingly as I work toward achieving my goals. I'm excited!
