Happy New Moon in Gemini!
Opportunities and possibilities abound this month beginning with this New Moon in the curious and creative sign of Gemini.
A New Moon is a time of new beginnings and starting a brand new chapter for the month ahead. This is a great time for setting intentions, and the curious and expansive sign of Gemini can help you think of just how to convey your intention and get your message across or fully commit to a new routine.
New Moon energy is also the perfect time for clearing or cleansing your home, crystals, decks and even yourself of any old habits or energy that might be blocking you from reaching your goals! Use this time to call in what you are wanting to create in the future.
This New Moon in Gemini opens the gateway to the Honey Moon cycle; a time of both productivity & sweetness.
Spring is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere. Birds are chirping and flowers bloom while the bees are buzzing all around, collecting pollen for their honey. We are beginning to notice the growth blooming around us and how it is all connected.
Connection seems to be an important subject this month. The New Moon wants us to socialize and connect with others like us, and the Honey Moon reminds us of the Hive and to help others and be open to receiving help ourselves.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help this month, and allow others to open the door for you or give you the tools and resources you might need to achieve your goals!
Each month, with our planners and our decks, we look ahead at the astrology coming up for the New Moon Cycle to create the Moonthly Energy Reading!

The sign of Gemini is so versatile and curious… it’s a great time for starting anything new, especially something that that involves studies, research or anything else that gets your mind buzzing. it’s important to not start TOO many things right now!
But, expect communication to freely flow this week.
Mercury enters Cancer on the 4th shortly after the New Moon. This will improve your memory and enhance your craving for intellectual connections… emotions may predominate your choices this week so be sure to check in with your intuition and body before acting.
Avoid taking on too much or over committing yourself to too many projects this week. Gemini/Mercury loves to connect and be of help others so be careful to not self sacrifice and overwhelm yourself with the problems of others. It’s important to find the balance between helping others and being helped this week.
Your connection with others will be very important this week
Be open minded when it comes to setting your intentions for this month… You might not be able to do this alone. It’s perfectly okay to rely on others in order to get the things you need sometimes.
Ask your higher self and your guides to help put you in connection with the right people and places that will help you see the opportunities you need! Connections even from our past can open the right doors to future opportunities.
Venus enters Gemini on June 8th just before the First Quarter Moon which could cause us to face difficult or important decisions. Choice might be a big thing that comes up, so good communication within partnerships or anyone involved will be helpful during this time!
The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous: Connect. With so much on the blog already about connecting with others, it truly feels like an important topic this week to see it pulled for the weekly card! This New Moon is a great time to set some strong intentions and brainstorm all the different ways you can achieve your goals, but don’t forget how important asking for help can be! Set intentions to be connected to the right people, or share your ideas with others and get input from those you trust. Ask for help if you need it and make sure there is mutual energy exchange.

First Quarter in Virgo
The First Quarter moon takes place in the sign of Virgo on June 9th. Virgo is the sign of the healer and motivates us towards cleansing and organizing both our mental and physical spaces so we can grow and heal properly.
When the Waxing Moon is in Virgo we feel motivated towards building routine and paying extra attention to the small details. The Waxing Moon energy in of itself motives us to want to plan and look ahead. Use this Virgo energy to make a detailed steps to take later this week.
Feelings of restlessness could be high this when Venus moves into the sign of Gemini. This will have you wanting to infuse intellectual stimulation into your interests, daily pursuits and even love life. The Sun opposes Jupiter this week which can cloud your judgement. The temptation to overindulge is high this week, so be careful with what you are saying “yes” to.
For those that usually restrict themselves from having fun or inviting in pleasure into their lives, this week is a good one to allow yourself to indulge! Stay in and do your favorite activities at home… or go out and enjoy your time with your friends if you feel called to it! Set the intention to invite in more pleasure and abundance and then take a step towards achieving it.
The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Focus. Where is your focus this week? Where has your mind naturally been drawn to? Remember,”where focus goes, energy flows.” The Waxing Moon motivates us and stokes our inner fire… but that fire needs to be tended and watched or it might smother itself out… or worse run wild and cause destruction! This week, while the moon is waxing towards Full, try to harness your focus! If you are having trouble finding an area of focus, sit back and observe yourself. Watch where you naturally focus your energy is this week and see how this invites in either chaos or growth.

It might seem hard to concentrate as the week continues… Neptune went retrograde on the 21st which can make life feel a little off… you might feel a bit out of touch with reality this week.

Your creativity might really be highlighted this week… so don’t be afraid to unleash it and look for the messages that your higher self wants to reveal to you.
