Gemini New Moon May 2020 May 22, 2020

Gemini New Moon May 2020 May 22, 2020 (Note there’s a lot of 2’s in this one)
The Gemini New Moon on May 22, 2020 is a busy one. It strengthens and involves energy from Venus, Mercury, Neptune, and Saturn. All of this cosmic activity may feel a little overwhelming, but there is a way we can use it to our advantage.
The New Moon represents the start of new lunar cycle. It is a time to plant seeds, set intentions, and to think about what we wish to create. But it is also a time of turning inward. Think of the New Moon like a seed that has been planted. The seed is programmed with a certain code but there is is, buried in the dark soil, uncertain of what’s to come or what it will turn out to be.

As the New Moon falls in Gemini, the sign of the twins, we may feel pulled in two directions. We may feel our heart wanting to go one way, and our mind wanting to go the other. Or, we may simply feel a sense of confusion, a sense of loss or even hopelessness. The dark night of the New Moon can seem endless, but the light will always return.
The Gemini twins also represent being connected to earth and connected to heaven. Being the bridge between these two states is what life is all about and we may be reminded of this on the New Moon.

How do we live connected to the physical reality we see and the spirit reality we feel?
Retrograde Saturn is active on this New Moon also and provides some grounded energy. It supports us in setting goals and thinking about things in a more practical and methodical way. Saturn wants us to use our powers of creation on this New Moon to make wise choices that will stand the test of time.

Saturn calls for us to get real with what is happening in our lives. It wants us to think about the long term and put plans in place as best we can.
What steps and actions can you take on this New Moon that will support and nourish your future and where you wish to head?

While Saturn adds some practicality and earthiness, we also have strong water and air energy floating in from Mercury, Venus, and Neptune. Mercury and Retrograde Venus will be at the exact same degree of the zodiac- 20 degrees of Gemini, at the time of this New Moon. This cosmic duo teaming up are a beautiful match, but they both make alignments to Neptune and this is where the clouds roll in. Neptune is the planet of spirituality and dreams, but also illusions. Neptune can color our reality, allowing us to see new potentials but also, fogginess.

With Venus Retrograde and Neptune’s presence here, we may feel a little confused about which way to turn. This energy may enhance that feeling of being pulled in two directions or create a feeling of disconnect between our heart and mind. In order to navigate this energy, go within to the place of your own inner knowing.
We have so much energy in the cosmos right now supporting us to dive in deep and to trust the process that is unfolding around us.

Rather than getting lost indecision, we are asked to wait and trust that we will be guided to the right answers. The right answers are always there, and with a gentle patience, we will break free of the fog and find our way to where we need to be.

The Gemini New Moon may make us feel that we have been buried in the darkness, but that only means we are on a journey of finding our way to a new light. This is a powerful time for ritual work, for setting intentions, and for thinking about our long term plans.
While we don’t have to map out our entire lives, these planets come together to help us figure out what we want and what we are willing to do to make it happen. Trust your inner wisdom, and if you feel confused, retreat within. Give yourself permission to wait until the right answer floats up and you are met with knowing.

How The May 2020 New Moon Will Affect You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

We’re starting a fresh lunar cycle starting on Friday, May 22, because that’s when the new moon will arrive to deliver us a fresh start and a chance to boost our energy levels — especially after the intense full moon in Scorpio we had during the first week of May. Taking place in airy Gemini (and rolling in just two days after Gemini season begins), this moon sparks a greater need for communication and a desire to learn something new and process some fresh information. But of course,  this new moon will affect all zodiac differently.

This moon squares off with Mars, which means we’ll be drawn to take action around expressing our passions. Get ready to make the most of this luminary, because it’s the best cosmic opportunity we’ve had in a while to truly embrace new possibilities.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Gemini’s chit-chatty energy is written all over this new moon, and it’s definitely making you want to prioritize social connections. That said, you’ll want to be cautious about being overly impulsive and saying something that you don’t mean or spilling someone’s secrets (even your own). “Think before you speak. “Choose your words wisely to avoid drama.”

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taureans are known for being a little stubborn, and that’s OK — but try to embrace some of Gemini’s flexibility under this moon, because reaching out for a helping hand could make all the difference. “Ask for help if you need it. “Don’t steer away from guidance now.” If you stay open to the advice and kindness of others, you might find that you accomplish even more than you would have otherwise.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

While this is an energizing full moon for most, it’s in your sign this time around, Gemini — which means that all your hard work might be coming to a boiling point and asking you to slow down. “Work is crazy at the moment, which is why you’ll need to focus on your needs and relax. Set some time aside for a Friday night self-care date and think about new ways to express yourself and expand your personal brand.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The dark moon is the ideal time for a moon baby like you to set a night aside for setting intentions and doing some soul searching. “It’s OK to have some chill time. “Center yourself and embrace your visions.” By creating a quiet space where you can hear your inner-voice, you’ll have the ideal guide for embarking on upcoming adventures.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Friends should inspire you, but the new moon is making you question whether the people you’ve surrounded yourself with lately are really the type of people you want to be close with. “Friendships will be put to the test. “Only the strong ones will survive.” Don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions. You’re no follower, Leo, so it’s time to start embracing the leader inside of you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Your partnerships have been in need of a tune-up, Virgo, and this new moon is here to help you get there. However, no one said change was going to be easy, so brace yourself for the moon feelingss to come. “You’re leveling up your relationships, but that requires strength. “Have faith in yourself.” Remember that this is a time of great possibility, so don’t hesitate to step into a new and healthier dynamic within your closest relationships.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The new moon is in a fellow air sign now, Libra, so you might be feeling extra inspired to let your mind wander — but don’t run away with a fantasy, because right now is a critical time to stay focused and keep your feet on the ground. “Don’t veer away from your tasks now. “Stay on the path you started. No distractions.” Keep putting in the work and you’re guaranteed to see some results.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

After that intense full supermoon in your sign two weeks ago, it feels like lines have been blurred in all different directions for you. Allow the fresh-start vibe of this new moon to help you go inward and start putting up the energetic protections you need to get your space back and feel more like yourself. “Creating boundaries in relationships is hard, especially at the moment but you can set limits if you try.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

It’s been all too easy for you to pour your heart and soul into work lately, — but this new moon is a reminder that you may have been doing this as a way to distract yourself from other heartfelt matters that deserve your attention. “Your professional visions may be interfering with your relationships. “Try to find a balance that works.” Gemini is the sign of duality, so embrace its ability to multitask and try to split up your focus in a healthier way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You’re not typically one to get involved in workplace drama, but the chatty energy of this Gemini moon has even got you hooked into the rumor mill, Capricorn. “Gossip with coworkers may be interfering with your goals. “Stay focused.” Take some time away from the chatter and allow yourself to refocus on your personal goals and get back onto your trajectory.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Venus, planet of value, is currently in retrograde — so this new moon might trigger some friction and stress around your financial situation, Aquarius. “Money may be a source of frustration, so try not to overspend. Call on the creative flexibility that comes with the moon being in a fellow air sign and come up with new ways to save and make do with what you have.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Action planet Mars has just entered your sign, Pisces, so you’re feeling highly energized and ready to move forward. However, the new moon’s introspective touch asks you to slow things down so you can figure out where you’re headed. “You’re drawn to take action, but not sure what direction you want to swim toward. Quiet down your inner cheerleader for a second and allow your heart to speak — then you’ll know which way to point your cosmic compass.
