Perhaps the most noteworthy astrological feature at the time of this New Moon in Gemini is tha fact that Jupiter and Uranus are sitting right on top of each other at 0 degrees Aries. When Uranus moved into Aries at the time of the Full Moon, we talked about surprises and unexpected happenings occuring with fiery energy. Now with Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Aries, the possibility of such happenings is greatly expanded. Be watchful! Be ready to deal with unexpected problems – but also ready to take advantage of unexpected opportunities. And stay watchful throughout the summer. More astrological fireworks are coming.
The New Moon in Gemini will help you alert your mind to problems and/or opportunities brought by Uranus and Jupiter in Aries. A Gemini New Moon is always a time for new ideas and information, and never more so than this year. The Sun-Moon conjunction is making a loose (very loose) conjunction with Neptune , so this information could be of a spiritual nature. Or – it could be the illusionary information of undirected dreaming.
However, the Gemini New Moon always provides an excellent opportunity for communication – with other people, with divine guides, with your own subconscious, or with animals, plants, or inanimate objects. The Moon stays in Gemini until 8:50 PM the evening of the New Moon, June 12, for best communication opportunity. This communication is greatly aided by the fact that Mercury, ruler of Gemini, has now moved into the sign of Gemini. Mercury will be in this sign of communication until June 25
Venus has been making her way through nurturing Cancer, and at the time of this New Moon, she is making a sextile with Saturn in Virgo. The structural details of loving relationships, artistic projects, and even finances should be readily apparent at this time.
Mars has progressed into Virgo, along with Saturn, and this meticulous, slow-moving Martial energy is in stark contrast to the fiery energy of Uranus and Jupiter. Expect to feel indecision about whether to move quickly – or slowly and deliberately.
The Tarot card for Gemini is The Lovers. Notice the communication on this card. The Man looks to the Woman for guidance, and the Woman looks to the divine, as represented by the Holy Guardian Angel. No, men should not always look to women for guidance! The figures on the card are symbolic. The Man represents Consciousness and the Woman represent Subconsciousness. Yes, we should all look deeply within ourselves to Subconsciousness, which has receive guidance from the divine through meditation and thoughtful introspection.

New Moons are always about new beginnings, of course, but we have this new moon on the first day of the month with a solar eclipse. If you need to make a major change of some kind, now is the time. Another solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse this summer can help steady your new direction.
Gemini is all about words, ideas and people. Pay special attention to the words and ideas that flow through your mind, with special regard as to how they relate to the people in your life. Are your relationships functioning as you wish they would? If not, why not? (Think of your own part in the relationship, instead of the problems the other person presents!) And what of your general attitude toward life and your prospects? What do your thoughts tell you? What words and ideas might you substitute for those you habitually find present?
Yes, Gemini is about communication, and this is a good time to communicate with all the people in your life, in whatever way is most appropriate. This is also an especially good time to communicate with your Higher Self or your spirit guide, whatever form this may take for you. This New Moon is making a nice trine with Saturn in Libra, giving a loving structure for whatever communication you may need to make. Be sure to listen carefully to the other people in your life and to your spiritual counselor. Also, remember that guidance can come in many ways – a song you hear, an ad you see, a strange, inexplicable yearning. Pay attention to subtle guidance of this kind.
When Mercury goes into its native Gemini on Thursday, opportunities for guidance will probably increase, as well as opportunities for effective communication of all kinds.
Neptune goes retrograde on Friday for its annual 5-month retrograde period. Retrograde Neptune is always an excellent time to re-evaluate your spirituality, as well as your wishes, hopes, and dreams.
Jupiter goes into Taurus on Saturday, giving you a wonderful chance to expand your values in whatever way seems most appropriate to you. Yes, Jupiter in Taurus can mean an increase in wealth, if proper preparation has been made. Certainly Jupiter in Taurus offers opportunity for increased aesthetic appreciation of all kinds and appreciation of nature. Take time to consider how this appreciation could manifest during the year Jupiter resides in Taurus.
The Tarot card for Gemini is The Lovers. The male (Consciousness) looks to the female (Subconsciousness) who looks to the Angel for guidance. Be sure to notice what your guides are telling your deepest subconscious. Quiet, receptive meditation can be very, very fruitful for this New Moon.
