Gemini Moon Meaning
Gemini is a sign of communication and intellect, inviting us to gather, ponder, and communicate. The moon in this silver-tongued, adaptable air sign can inspire a wealth of excitable ideas and information. Represented by the symbol of twins, the moon in this sign illuminates our own inner duality, the integration of different ideas and perspectives. It can also inspire communication with those who we share a close bond with (such as siblings and sibling-like relationships), or those who excite the part of us that wants to learn more. At the same time, the moon in this social, inspiring sign can also be fast and excitable energy-wise, and may require an active intention to slow down and balance the intellect of the mind, with the wisdom of the heart.
Use the energy of the Gemini moon meaning to reflect on your own communication style. Engage your mind by learning, whether through socializing or reading books and researching. Who knows where new ideas may arise from! The Gemini new moon is great for setting new intentions around Gemini themes, while the full moon in Gemini (during Sagittarius season Nov 22-Dec 21) will invite balance between Gemini and Sagittarius themes (you can check out Sagittarius drinks here).
Put a Touch of Easy Gemini Magic into Your Mixology
The moon in this sign can favor magic that uses your go-to love language or communication style. Mix this into your Gemini drink – if you like to write, write your intention on a paper and place under your cocktail or mixing tin as your work mixology magic; whisper your intention into the drink, or sing while making it. If you are more kinetic, focus on the movement aspect of making a beverage (whether it be shaking, stirring, or otherwise) as you think of your intention, while you mix up some magic. The possibilities are endless! Your magic is unique, and so will your magical Gemini moon mixture. Mixing Gemini magic into a moon mixture is boundless in possibilities.
The energy of moon can vary greatly depending on other astrological factors. Read on to learn more about the Gemini new moon on June 17, or skip down to the drink below.
This Upcoming Gemini Lunation
Saturday June 17th, 2023 at 9:37pm PST
The next significant Gemini moon is the Gemini New Moon on Saturday June 17th at 9:37pm PST. As you now know, Gemini is a sign that relates to sibling-like relationships, and interestingly enough, this new moon comes a matter of hours before father’s day!
This new moon in Gemini forms an astrological angle (aspect) called a square, known for conflicting and challenging energy. Squaring Neptune (the watery planet of dreams and fantasy), this moon may have have a hazy energy for otherwise sharp-minded Gemini. Since the Gemini moon tends to inspire new, exciting ideas, this means the need to slow down at this time and reflect, might be more favorable at this time, before launching into new moon manifestation right away.
The moon also goes void of course soon after, as it makes its last big planetary aspect in Gemini and transitions into Cancer. The Void of course moon is notoriously not a great time for casting spells or pursuing new paths. However, the moon will then move into nurturing Cancer, and the next day after that (on June 19th), Jupiter (the planet of expansion and luck), will form a harmonious angle with Saturn.
All of this is to say, it may a good idea to slow down during this specific Gemini new moon and tune into the inspiration of Gemini, but wait a day or so before committing or taking any action.
