Gemini New Moon

There's an element of surprise this week with a New Moon and two key planets shifting signs. Prepare for the opportunity that comes with change.

First, we're awash in Gemini energy right now. This feels curious, engaged and sometimes a bit scattered. Journalists, writers and close-talkers typify the Gemini archetype. So do shameless charmers.

With a New Moon here, you may be busy with minutiae. Or driven to study or teach. Our minds may hit overload. All this intellectual stimulation could produce ideas that bear fruit around the 6° Capricorn Full Moon on June 27. 

But there's much more going on with this New Moon than Gemini stuff. Healing, divine wisdom and gifts of romance and a sense of oneness are still available thanks to a waning Neptune-Jupiter trine. Tune in to this while it lasts.

Meanwhile, brainstorms, breakthroughs and creative solutions are abundant with Uranus sextile Mercury in Cancer These could be especially useful as the same day, Venus moves into bossy Leo and squares Uranus, a catalyst for excitement and maybe some relationship drama.

This week, Cancer, Capricorn and Aries-dominant folks may be called to heal wounds around speaking up for themselves when they've had enough. This year, the early degrees of the Cardinal signs are in Saturn's cross-hairs, demanding integrity through hard work, responsibility and letting go -- but all for a big payoff by year's end. 

Aries, Cancer and Capricorn may also be feeling more vulnerable than usual now as Chiron in Aries squares Venus in Cancer. It may be time to confront old wounds around worthiness and self-nurturing. This is a reminder for all of us. Kristen Neff is an expert on the subject.

On this New Moon, Gemini, Aquarius and Libra may get a case of opening night jitters. They're all poised for an important launch and trying not to second-guess themselves. In astrology-speak: this New Moon trines those signs, but also makes a self-doubting square to Neptune in Pisces and an uncomfortable quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn.

My advice to everyone this week: Stay the course. You got this.

Profound and long-lasting transformation is coming.
