Gemini New Moon: Curious, Open, Expressive


We experience the New Moon in Gemini on Friday, May 22nd at approximately 1:38 PM EDT – this New Moon marks the beginning of the final lunar cycle of the Spring season. As this New Moon is under the influence of Gemini, energies of openness, curiosity, and expression will be significant. Gemini is one of the air signs of the zodiac, which assists to create a lot of space, especially mentally and emotionally, so that we may remain open, while also feeling free to explore our curiosity and authentically express ourselves and what we are discovering.

Curious, Open, Expressive

Of course, the New Moon phase is a period when we are encouraged to go more within ourselves, release anything we do not want to bring into the new lunar cycle, and start afresh. With this also being the final New Moon of Spring, this is also an ideal time to reflect over this Spring season, in order to identify what we have learned, where we have grown, and what direction we are currently moving in during this time. There is a calling to use the influence of Gemini to open up and get curious about what is going on both within us and around us through our observations and experiences. Through doing so, we increase our capacity to learn and grow as we connect and integrate new information that has the possibility to create shifts from the inside out.

As mentioned above, the air quality of Gemini assists with creating more space for us, both mentally and emotionally. This will likely be beneficial for many of us during this New Moon, as we won’t be so heavily weighed down by our emotions, and instead are able to embrace our curiosity and desire to express ourselves in ways that feel good to us. This greater space and openness will also encourage an increased capacity to be with new experiences and perspectives, observing them and learning from them. As we do so, we may also discover things about ourselves that we may have previously been unaware of or didn’t consider to be significant.

Gemini energy is also significantly tied to communication and expression. As we open up and explore our curiosity, we are also encouraged to communicate and express new observations, ideas, and perspectives. This is an ideal time to follow any nudges we receive as it relates to communicating, sharing, and expressing, doing so in ways that feel right and aligned for us during this time. We are reminded that we have a unique and valid perspective, and that we should share it in ways that feel authentic to us when we feel called to do so. As we reflect over this Spring season, this New Moon in Gemini is also a perfect opportunity to remain curious about what is taking place within us and to explore that as deeply as we would like, perhaps through reflective journaling or through any other means that assist us to communicate with our inner being and allow that part of us to be expressed. Working with the energy of this New Moon provides us a chance to shift into a new paradigm, one where we completely embrace truth and freedom, allowing them to point us in the direction that is right for us.

Wishing all of you abundant New Moon blessings!
