The new moon is a time when the sun is conjunct the moon. There is harmony and balance. It is a good time to set intentions for the month ahead, as the energy is so focused. If you are a Gemini, this is a good time to set your intentions for the whole year. If you are an air sign in general, this should be a positive month ahead on the whole.

Gemini rules communication, intelligence, technology, the mind, networking, translations, social interactions, learning, teaching and short-distance travel (Jupiter rules long-distance travel). Geminis are usually highly intelligent and good at disseminating ideas in a way that most people can understand – this is because they are ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the gods.

In this chart the Sun and the Moon are on the cusp of the 8th house, which represents transformation and money. It makes a positive aspect to the Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto stellium in Capricorn – this is encouraging and looks like we shall have some movement at last.

In general, this is a good month to consider how the lockdown has affected you financially and how you can use it to your advantage. The 8th house corresponds with Scorpio, the sign of death and transformation, so acting upon any ideas or insights about how you can make money in a different way should be taken seriously this month and developed.

The Sun and Moon make a difficult aspect to Mars in Pisces, so many Pisceans may find it difficult to get going this month and find their energies a bit scattered. If that’s the case, Pisceans, spend more time focusing on any artistic endeavours you may be pursuing – if that is not your thing, then spend lots of time surrounded by art and beauty this month, to relieve any tension you may feel.

Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, is conjunct with Venus also in Gemini, so a lot of energy is being expended in the collective as to how we can integrate these new models of working and communicating to improve work-life balance. Mercury and Venus make a hard aspect to Neptune, which shows a tension between many enjoying the time out of the daily grind to those wanting to get back to work. The way to resolve this is to begin focusing on how we can use new ideas about working and making money to drive us forward. What is occurring now is a real watershed and the old ways of working are being replaced. So this is a really good time to work out how to get ahead and set a solid foundation for the future. Utilise the mental power and intelligence of Gemini that is available this month to set your goals. Above all, Gemini can be very sociable, witty and fun – so take the time to have lots of Zoom parties this month!
