Communication, Talkative, Curious
On June 13th there’ll be a New Moon in Gemini, but before look what the Gemini New Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon and what it represents in astrology.
The Moon in Astrology
The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition. In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.
In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present. She speaks to us through our feelings.
About the Sign of Gemini
Gemini can never have enough information. Gathering information and facts wherever it can in reading, listening, talking or writing, Gemini has an insatiable appetite for knowledge. It is the most talkative sign of the zodiac, full of facts on a variety of topics and a lightning fast sharp wit, it loves to flirt while being great conversationalists.
Because Gemini wants to gather as much information as it can, it can get so much it can get lost in it all and find it hard to make up their minds.
Gemini is fun to be around, bouncing around from one topic to another, others can find it a challenge to keep up as they can sometimes speak so incredibly fast their words roll into each other, and they don’t finish their sentence before they go off on another thought.
Gemini is easily distracted, not good listeners and find it hard to finish what they started. Gemini has an intense curiosity and will ask many questions, this can come off sometimes as being nosey, but it is because they are curious and interested and want to know all.
One of Gemini traits is contrariness, going opposite to what is said as they can see both sides. This can be challenging to be around, they will find the weakness in the information and sometimes it will seem they will just do it out of habit.
One of the great abilities Gemini has is to take a lot of information and organise words in an orderly fashion. Gemini has incredible problem-solving abilities, if one way doesn’t work, they will have plenty of ideas of how to tackle a problem and can adapt to any situation.
The most challenging thing for Gemini to do is relax the mind, focusing your mind, deep breathing and yoga help greatly with slowing down all of Gemini’s rapid thinking.

How the New Moon in Gemini Coincides with Your Cycle
Day 4 – 6: You’ll be feeling chattier and you may feel like you are coming out of your shell. You could be involved in heated debates or gab sessions with your girlfriends. The biology of what is happening in your body at this time is complex due to a form of Oestrogen called Oestradiol. You may be having special feelings of adventure, optimism, excitement and have a super sharp wit which all enhance the energy of Gemini New Moon.
Day 9: Your brain has turned into a rapid firing machine. Be aware of the internal relentless chatter, analysing and over analysing of conversations and events. Try to structure your brilliant hyper-active analysing mind by writing down your thoughts in a journal. Once you’ve written down all the factors and formed your perspective, it’ll be easier to put the issue at rest in your own mind.
Be aware that the feel-good hormone oestrogen is crashing as you are at that point in your cycle just after ovulation; some women have described this as being worse than PMS.
Day 23 -24: Hormones will be dropping off kicking off PMS. Be mindful of the power of your words.
As always, it is recommended you take time to do meditation, look at your nutrition and what you are putting into your body and how it’s making you feel.
You can find recipes, meditation to support you through your cycle and Astrology will help find the meaning behind the New Moon in Gemini to harness its energies.
