RIP + TAN Feature: New Moon in Gemini

The first official month of the summer season, June is usually filled with all kinds of fun opportunities. Interestingly enough, this year it also coincides with a new moon in Gemini, which Danielle Beinstein, Los Angeles astrologer and meditation guide, told us is also about new experiences and discoveries. Here she explains a little bit more about about this adventurous new cycle. If you live in the Los Angeles area or are planning a visit, be sure to check out one of Danielle’s New Moon Circle events in Venice. XXJKE


Danielle Beinstein:  Gemini is the curious networker, full of wit, charm, and ideas as it moves from one scene to the next. It’s known as The Twins, able to play both sides with equal aplomb. This New Moon involves all four mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. These signs adapt, acclimating to whatever circumstances they’re in. With Gemini’s ruler, Mercury (planet of communication), now direct in fixed, earthy Taurus, we should be careful not to overcommit. Our words continue to have weight, so let’s pause before committing, choosing heartfelt inspired action over fear and insecurity.

Options, this New Moon is all about options. We may feel scattered, pulled in various directions and overwhelmed. It may be challenging to pin down what is next or what is real. Things may feel surreal or unstable. We may feel disillusioned, disoriented, or confused. But herein lies the opportunity, the gift. How can we adapt, juggling all that’s in front of us, while committing to what has value and weight? What interests us, peaks our curiosity? Can we follow it without attachment to outcome, rooting ourselves in the moment of discovery itself? Can we ground in the here and now and trust our inner knowing, embracing uncertainty as a teacher? And can we maintain our faith, knowing that everything that happens to us, ultimately happens for us?

Gemini is a joy-filled, delightful sign. Play, learn, socialize, move about, have fun. Be in the moment—it’s always where the magic is.

G E M I N I Full Moon | "Gemini is the networker, the witty charmer always ready with a sharp retort. It's curious and sociable and adaptable. This Full Moon, opposite the Sun, Mercury (communication) and Saturn (karmic lessons, structure, limits) in Sagittarius and square Neptune in Pisces offers us an opportunity to look at the narratives we've constructed and whether or not they're actually serving us. We may find ourselves a little ungrounded as old beliefs and ideas begin to dissolve making way for the new. And with a cardinal T-square involving Libra, Uranus and Pluto also involved, we may revisit old themes around love and money, as we wrestle with who or what we're attracting in our lives. It's a very busy sky (how very Gemini) and one that may overwhelm, but the key here is the larger arc. So what is the story you're telling yourself? Are connecting the dots, moving in the direction of (real) wisdom, growth and expansion? And are you speaking (or writing) that truth, allowing old outworn constructions to dissolve as you continue to make way for the new?" Danielle Beinstein

Full Moon in Gemini

Kelley Rosano says,

“The Gemini Full Moon on December 6 is a party Moon. This Full Moon is a brief break from the intense growth and striving you have done… When you focus on what is working in your life. This creates a current of positive energy. You are a magnet for good things to flow to you…. For the next five months you are being asked to make core changes in your life. The Gemini Full Moon message is to Step Up. Be brave. Get in the driver seat empower yourself…. This huge amount of change can be exhausting. Take a moment and catch your breath. Celebrate what you have learned. Celebrate your growth. Celebrate how far you have come. Be adaptable. Change sheds the old and gives birth to the new.There is the part of you waiting to be born. You are the one you have been waiting for."
