Twinkle Twinkle Twin Star – New Moon In Gemini Rituals…

Make wishes with the new moon moment, as Lune meets Sol...

Kylie Minogue, Born 28th May 1968 with Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon in Gemini…

The New Moon is the most magical time of the lunar cycle; a time to turn inward, and reflect on the season presently in the spotlight.

The light of the Sun now brightly illuminates the constellation of the Twins – both Sun and Moon are in air sign Gemini, putting Gemini centre stage. 

While some might not find any remarkable events around this new moon, it does mark a moment to reflect, seed intentions and grow still.

Use your horoscope as inspiration, read for your sun sign and rising sign – look for your rising sign, here).

Make the most of this new moon with these talking points! And rituals…

1. Write Down Your Intentions, Learn, And Use An Inquiring Mind…

Enhance Your New Moon Wishes With Choice Words!

The most important ritual to adhere to on this particular new moon is putting pen to paper, and actually writing down your goals for the 6 and 18 months ahead.

In six months time it will be the Full Moon in Gemini, and in 18 months we’ll see another Gemini Full Moon that more closely matches this degree of Gemini.

Talk it over and be inquisitive, too.

Here are quotes from Salman Rushdie, born with Sun, Moon, Uranus, Venus and the North Node in Gemini...

“What one writer can make in the solitude of one room is something no power can easily destroy.”

“A poet’s work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.”

“I make no complaint. I am a writer. I do not accept my condition; I will strive to change it; but I inhabit it, I am trying to learn from it.”

“What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.”

“If I were asked for a one-sentence sound bite on religion, I would say I was against it.”

Really think about what matters to you, what stories you’re keen to tell, what issues among kindred spirits you’re eager to discuss in even more intricacy.

Don’t forget to engage your fellow man in the process – Gemini energy is about pairing – and don’t be the ‘evil twin’!

Look to your friend like Steffi Graf looks at Agassi. The German tennis phenomenon was born with the Sun, Moon and Mercury in Gemini and Gemini Rising – clearly an amazing team mate!

Buddy up to elevate your discourse and ideas, name it, learn the facts (no easy feat with Neptune in Pisces, I might add…)

L’Amoureux, Oswald Wirth Tarot Deck 1889

Meditate on the ‘Lovers’ card from your Tarot Deck, the card for Gemini, which represents conscious connections, meaningful relationships and choices.

Gemini Sun and Moon, Imogen Poots…

Use your hands. Work out your thoughts through the fingers, expressing through typing, writing, thinking and free flow expression

2. Still The Chatter, Quiet The Mind…

Go inward at New Moon and embrace mindfulness.

With the New Moon in a sign governed by messenger Mercury, this a supremely good time to unwind, calm the nerves and embrace an easy, breezy moment.

Gemini’s Ruling Planet Is Mercury, in Tarot represented by the Magician…

Gemini is the most mentally agile of the air signs, a trickster, wordsmith, insatiably curious and dexterous.

Willow Shields, born June 1, 2000, Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars…

It’s a good time to unwind with a guided meditation, listening to a distracting voice.

Just like singer Jewel sang:

“If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful, and useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless, I won’t be idle with despair, I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear”.

3. Use Fresh Tones…

Brooke Shields, born May 31st 1965 with Sun, Moon, Venus, North Node and the Midheaven in Gemini (interestingly also married to tennis player Andre Agassi…)

Yellow is the most inspiring colour, to be used generously on this lunation.

Although this honeysuckle candle looks as if it has a dual wick – with a twin flame effect – it actually has four!

According to groveandgrotto, “Honeysuckle is especially liked by Faeries, and is essential if you wish to court their presence in your home. Like the Fae themselves, Honeysuckle thrives in liminal spaces, preferring fences and half-shade.”

Fill the air with notes of summer…

Magical herbs for Mercury power include mint, lemongrass, dill and fennel…

Prepare drinks (recipe here for a Lemongrass Mojitos) and salads (see here) that are easy to digest. Celery too is a Mercurial ingredient!

4. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – Shine And Sparkle…

This is a fantastic day and moment to up the sparkle and shine in your look, to go light and lovely like butterfly.

Add angel wings for Mercury…

Star light, star bright – you’ll see the stars shimmer and shine on the New Moon as the Moon is with the Sun – so the stars can sparkle hard…

The Moon in Gemini might be in its darkest hour but you needn’t dull your shine. Step into gentle sparkles as you look towards your cosmic potential.

Take A Pause To Polish & Pamper…

Remember that Gemini governs the fingers and thumbs, the hands, arms, lungs and nervous system.

With a moment of refection in order, what better time to take 5 for a manicure? Trim your cuticles, letting go of all that doesn’t serve you.

Bring luck by your side, keep stars in your eyes – and wear butterflies in your hair…

5. Exhale Intentionally – BREATHE!

Discover the perfect practice, a yoga sequence for Gemini season!

Spread your fingers wide or shake out your arms and hands, move…
