With this New Moon being in Gemini, a mutable air sign that is highly intellectual, sociable, and charismatic, we can expect the themes of self-expression and mental stimulation to be prevalent.
In this article, read all about the New Moon in Gemini, the numerology correspondence, and three ways to harness this powerful energy!
Gemini Energy: A Quick Breakdown
Gemini is a mutable air sign ruled by the fast moving planet Mercury. This makes Gemini very intelligent, adaptive, and sociable. Geminis are always on the go both physically and mentally. They typically have lots of ideas and thoughts, and are mentally creative.
Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, governs our communication, thoughts, and expression. Also referred to as Messenger to the Gods, Mercury helps us unleash the power of our mind. It helps us to gather information and channel it in ways to make great decisions to move forward along our life journey.
Gemini is the 3rd sign of the zodiac, making it the ruler of the 3rd house. The 3rd house is the house of communication, logic, and reasoning. It indicates how we learn, read, write, and speak. It also represents short term travel, childhood, and siblings.
With Gemini’s inquisitive and curious nature, we can expect to learn new things about ourselves and maybe even others during this New Moon, as well as discover new ways to think and communicate.
When the Moon is in Gemini
When the Moon is in Gemini, our emotions may be more intellectualized. We might be inclined to analyze our feelings rather than to actually feel them. This is a bit contradictory as the moon is highly intuitive, sensing, and perceptive.
Additionally, because of Gemini’s mutable nature, we can feel our emotions shifting rapidly during this time. It’s important that we remain centered and grounded during this New Moon.
On a brighter note, with the moon being in Gemini, we might notice that we are more sociable, outgoing, and charismatic. We might have a greater need to communicate and express ourselves, making this an ideal time to delve into writing, podcasting or sharing more of ourselves on a social platform.
Though we may find our emotions shifting rapidly, it can be easier for us to put those feelings into words, due to Gemini’s profound expressive and writing abilities.
Gemini New Moon Numerology
June 18, 2023 reduces down to the number 22, making this a master number 22 day. Number 22 represents the visionary. Master number 22 is often referred to as the Master Builder. 22 takes the ideas and inspirations of master number 11 and makes them a reality.
22 is intuitive and sensitive, yet disciplined and structured. It has the energy of a diplomat, dreamer, and powerful manifestor.
With the New Moon falling on this day, it’s a wonderful time to apply all the downloads and ideas circling in the collective consciousness, and your own mind, and manifest them. Find a way to transform the abstract into something concrete.
Now is the time to be truly a visionary. Use the power of your mind to create something extraordinary that will not only benefit yourself, but others as well.
What thoughts and ideas have you been wanting to express? Is there anyone that you’ve been wanting to collaborate with, whether creatively, professionally, or otherwise? How can you use the power of your mind in an extraordinary way?
A great thing is that 22 holds the energy of number 4, giving us a sense of stability and grounding despite the fickle nature of the Gemini Moon.
Gemini New Moon: How to Work With This Energy
Now that we’ve had an overview on the New Moon in Gemini and its numerological energy, let’s discuss the three things that you can do to best harness its power.
1. Begin Journaling or Express Yourself Through Words
Given that the Gemini energy is skillful at expression whether through writing or speaking, this New Moon is an excellent time to begin journaling. Journaling is a self-care practice that can be extremely powerful and transformative, as it allows you to clear your mind, reduce stress or anxiety, improve your memory, and increase your sense of well-being.
On top of that, journaling can lead to self discovery. It gives you a chance to reflect on how far you’ve grown and provides a deeper understanding of the inner workings of your mind.
There are a plethora of ways to journal. You can start a dream journal where you record your dreams the first thing in the morning when you wake up; you can begin a gratitude journal to help you stay in a high, positive vibration as you express love and thanks to Our Creator, and you can even keep a journal and treat it as a diary where you share the thoughts and feelings that you don’t want to share with anyone else.
The options are endless. You can journal about any and everything. If you don’t prefer to journal, use this Gemini New Moon to express yourself through words in any way. As I mentioned earlier, you can start a podcast or be more active on a social media platform like YouTube.
It can also be as simple as just being more forthcoming with how you feel or what you think with your friends, family, coworkers, or the people closest to you.
Keep in mind the power of the thoughts you think and the words you speak not only during this New Moon in Gemini, but at all times.
2. Take a Day Trip to a New City or Town
Being that Gemini rules the 3rd house which has an influence on short distance travel, this New Moon in Gemini is an ideal time to explore somewhere you haven’t been. Stepping out of our quotidian routine can be revitalizing and refreshing.
When we explore a new area, we gain new information, see things with a fresh perspective, and create novel experiences. It also gives us the opportunity to meet new people, and Gemini’s social nature thrives on building new connections.
Gemini loves stimulation and what better way to stimulate yourself than to change your environment for a few days?
If there’s anywhere that you’ve been wanting to travel to that isn’t too far away, whether by car or plane, consider planning a short trip around the time of the Gemini New Moon.
3. Sign Up for a Learning Experience
Gemini is extremely smart and clever. This New Moon, consider enrolling in a course, signing up for a weekend seminar, or working towards a certificate in some form of training that interests you.
Think about what you’d love to learn. What’s held you back from diving in and gaining the information you seek? If finances have held you back, don’t let that be an excuse. There’s a ton of free information on the internet and in libraries.
If you’re unable to sign up for a class or training program, use the energy of the New Moon in Gemini to kickstart your motivation to teach yourself whatever it is that you want to learn. Get creative and find a way to stimulate your mind by learning something new.
