Gemini New Moon


Gemini is an Air Sign, representing our communications, our learning, our speech, and our mind. In the chart above it is represented by the two columns. Gemini’s tend to be on the outspoken side. Have great attention to detail. They are a very dualistic energy seeing both sides, the dark and the light. The ruler of Gemini is Mercury. This planet is known as a bit of a trickster, and of course well known for its retrogrades. You may know a Gemini and they are playful, curious and have a great sense of humor.

Gemini is the 3rd sign of the Zodiac. The 3rd house represents our communities, teaching at the lower level, local travel, transportation, our siblings and cousins. After defining our value system, we are ready to go out and explore the immediate world around us. We are also learning how to express ourselves.

Gemini is a Mutable sign. This means this sign is ever changing, they can be easily bored and require a lot of mental stimulation. This can however have them start up a lot of things, but not necessarily finish them in a timely manner. With Mercury the ruler of Gemini you can expect these people to move swiftly and talk swiftly, maybe even drive swiftly. They are very flexible and tolerant.

A few famous Gemini people you might know or recognize the above traits in; Johnny Depp and Marilyn Monroe. In particular Johnny Depp has used different types of speech and languages in many of his roles. Marilyn known for how she speaks as well.

The body part ruled by Gemini is the arms and the lungs. I often find those with strong Gemini traits work with their hands. The lungs are symbolic of the twin towers that represent Gemini. It is balanced energy even in the body. The lungs need air in and out. The left and right hands work together.

Each New Moon you have an opportunity to create 10 New Moon Wishes according to Jan Spiller's book New Moon Astrology. She suggests you write out your wishes within 5 hours of the New Moon. As you write out these wishes you want to be sure to wish for what is best for your soul, not your ego. Which can be a little more challenging when you consider all Aries represents. If you write wishes from your ego's perspective you are most likely writing them from a place of lack or fear. There will be a bit of desperation attached to them and this can lead to a poor manifesting experience. You can choose to write less than 10, but do not write any more than that, as it will lessen the impact of your wishes.

So, what is an example of an ego wish vs a soul wish? I wish to be the smartest person at work versus I want the intelligence to navigate my work life in a way that is for my highest good. Your ego needs you to be the best, to be the smartest. But the soul wants to learn for the sake of learning, to develop and grow.

You have 10 new moon wishes and you can write more than one on the same topic, so do some experimenting. See which way of writing out your wishes works best for you. Try out different verbiages as well, I want, I wish, I am thankful for. Whatever 'feels' right to you is the best way to write out your wishes. How you connect emotionally to your wishes is as important to how you write them out. If you don't actually believe a wish can come true for you, it won't. So, take your time, feel into each wish as you write it down, then say it out loud. You can save your wishes or use the element of the sign to help you manifest with them. With fire you can hold a candle and speak your wishes aloud, or you can burn them safely in a fire. You could even write them out after completing a strenuous workout where you generate a lot of heat.
