Mercury (the ruler of the Gemini New Moon) is currently transiting Gemini which adds a great deal of potency to this New Moon.
Saturn is also Stationary Retrograde in Pisces which signals the potential for a return to the negotiating table. Compassion is the dictate of Pisces energy. There can be a welcomed return of what may have seemed like a missed opportunity. It’s time for any kind of do over related to structures in life, so that they are balanced and more equitable.
Gemini’s are playful and intellectually curious, bordering on nosiness. They are flexible, extroverts by nature, talkative and quick minded sometimes to the extreme.
Their very sharp, intelligent and inquisitive nature makes them excel in communications. Gemini’s enjoy travel and connecting with diverse groups of people. They love networking and can make excellent diplomats and negotiators.
Often seen as witty and charming, Geminis project positive energy. Their warmth and charisma help them to get along socially and make friends easily.
Gemini’s can be superficial and like to keep conversations light and easy. They like to be liked and can flip flop in their support to gain popularity and approval from others. They can also be indecisive, unreliable, impulsive and terrible gossips.
What’s Up in Your Chart?
Tips for How the Gemini New Moon Can Affect You Personally.
Everyone has the Gemini New Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Gemini New Moon influence:
- Mercury is the ruler of Gemini whose natural placement in the zodiac is the 3rd house which represents your conscious everyday thinking mind, or the lower mind. Mercury also rules how you perceive reality, your thought patterns, attitudes and judgments. How you get on in relationships in general, and with your neighbors and siblings, is represented in this house. Your style of communication and what you like to talk about is also represented by the 3rd house.
- What personal planets are located in your 3rd house? Do you have any easy flowing, or hard aspects to this house from one or more of your personal planets?
- What house is your natal Mercury located in your astrology chart? Is there a harmonious, or stressful contact between your Mercury and your 3rd house?
- As Mercury is currently transiting the sign of Gemini ruled by Mercury, all themes related to Mercury (local travel, communication, means of connecting like trains, planes and cars, siblings and neighbors) are highlighted.
- Saturn is Stationary Retrograde in Pisces, indicating a review of society’s foundations, the rule of law, regulations, status quo, corporate and governmental structures, etc.
- Your emotions can feel quite unsettled during this time. The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche the emotions will be transient. Best to let your emotions settle before taking action that may have long standing results.

The Gemini New Moon brings the need for change and spontaneity. There may be a lot of heightened buzz as people can feel especially motivated to share their feelings and views about current events. Local and community matters gain the most attention. Commonality and banding together in your local community gains importance. People’s feeling of safety lies in their open discussion about what matters most to them. This is a time to focus on shared values and what brings harmony rather than focusing on differences and what divides you from others.
