New Moon in Gemini (Cancer): Fortune’s Favorite
New Moon in Gemini (Cancer)
While the New Moon is in the first decan of the Cancer Sign, it is actually located in the Gemini Constellation and this gives us intense devotion, genius, largeness of mind, goodness, and liberality. I like the sound of that!
We also find the New Moon in the House of Mercury (only three degrees from Mercury) and as well as the fortunate sign of Gemini. This heralds a luscious beginning to the Lunar Month. Mercury is the main astrological influence under this Moon. So get ready to get into ideas, communication and transport. This is definitely a New Moon for sharing bright ideas and making plans. It is a sociable moon phase ideal for making partnerships and for starting new business ventures.
This New Moon is bright, witty and fleet-footed, and it generally has a positive vibe thanks to the influence of the twin, Castor (I don’t subscribe to the Good Twin/Bad Twin crap) as it aligns with Propus (a fixed star) which is in Castor’s foot.
Moon conjunct Mercury is a cheeky one and can play tricks as this is a shape-shifting combo. At best, the combination of logic and intuition gives great common sense. At this New Moon, rapid mood swings and whimsical thought processes will prevail. The Moon is both the juggler and magician at this moment. Thoughts are things and those touched by this New Moon could conjure themselves up a beautiful domestic arrangement if they can focus on their dreams for long enough.
This Mercurial flavoured New Moon gives a great sense of humour, charm and instinctive timing especially as Mercury is swimming in Cancer at the moment.
Since Mars is still in Cancer, just beginning to connect with Jupiter before hitting Pluto’s power and then Uranus’ awakening, expect some hot and spicy exchanges during this New Moon cycle, especially with family and friends. Try to listen, because the other person probably won’t.
Finally, at the New Moon we can turn things upside down to get a different perspective. Do a headstand, take a new route, change positions during sex..shake it up and let blood flood the brain. Take the opportunity to swim in the positive, uplifting and healing presence of Castor and don’t overload on trash that will produce unnecessary fear.
