The new moon at 12 degrees Gemini takes place early in the morning on June 3rd. Gemini-ruler, Mercury will also be the sign as you’ll note in the graphic below. The emphasis on mental energy is obvious.
Taken alone, you might expect crisp thinking, clever quips, lots of calls or texts, and probably some gossip just to keep things interesting.
The new moon is almost that “clean” but not quite. Neptune in Pisces at 18 degrees. That is within orb to mess with a person’s mind and/or their communications or daily commute.
Jupiter (retrograde) in Sagittarius at 20 degrees will also be pulled in. This is good in that Jupiter is a benefic planet, especially in it’s home sign. However, it can also expand confusion if that’s what gets created with this.
I used the word, “created”, specifically because the Sun is a creative. A person can create (sun) confusion or feel (moon) confused, possibly undoing themselves or others, BUT.
A person can also rise above (Jupiter) confusion (Neptune) and maintain mental clarity (Gemini).
That is my daughter, pictured. She’s a Gemini with Mercury conjunct her sun. She also has Jupiter in Sagittarius and this new moon takes place on her birthday. Neptune rules photography. What you see in that picture is what you’re going to see under this new moon. Pairs that are true and distorted.
That picture was not posed, by the way. I just saw it; asked her to “hold” and snapped the pic. Crisp and inspired.
We set intentions under new moons; akin to planting the seed of something we would like to see grow.
