This week we’re kicking off a new lunar cycle on Wednesday with a New Moon at the end degrees of Gemini. The most intensified aspect to the Gemini New Moon will be a inconjunction/quincunx aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, indicating a fear of uncertainty and the potential to want to try to control what lies ahead through planning and manipulation tactics. It is important in this instance to actively surrender and trust that the Universe has a plan for us all during these times, as doing so can unlock incredible mental focus and psychic potential!
Monday (6/11): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is in Taurus throughout most of the day, making only positive aspects to Neptune, Pluto and Venus making this an excellent time for creative projects of all kinds. The Moon goesVoid-of-Course at 8:28pm MST until late tonight at 11:53pm MST when Moon moves into the playful and inquisitive sign of Gemini, ushering us into the energy of tomorrow’s New Moon.
The moon’s transit through Gemini is a time of heightened emotional intelligence, making it one of the best times to socialize. Activities such as throwing parties, attending social events, sending cards, emails, and letters, connecting with old friends, and doing things that are spontaneous and playful are favored at this time. Movement is key, as curious Gemini likes to move quickly from one topic to the next. This moon placement also favors intellectual pursuits such as research, writing, journalism, and all other activities requiring us to think on our feet. The moon in Gemini is an excellent time to communicate creatively. It is also a time when our thoughts become more connected with our emotions, making it more difficult to discern between what we think and what we feel. Emotional bonds can be strengthened through communication making this is a great time to connect with people in the community, as well as siblings, cousins and extended family members. Gemini is an air sign and its energy does tend to feel a bit scattered. For some, there is a danger of becoming flaky and manipulative during this time.
Tuesday (6/12): Mercury officially leaves its home sign of Gemini and moves into the nurturing, intuitive sign of Cancer today. Under the influence of this receptive water sign, our thoughts are more easily influenced by our fluctuating moods and emotional states. Rational, grounded thinking becomes much more difficult, and our language becomes colored with emotional “feeling” words the focus in our communication becomes much more internalized and subjective. Mercury in Cancer influences us to make decisions based on how things feel in the moment, without a lot of foresight or planning. This is wonderful for tapping into our intuitive abilities when it comes to our choices, however; it can also lead us to make illogical, poorly thought-out decisions that may simply cause a mess for us later on down the road. Allowing time to feel things out, and go through our internal emotional cycles in their entirety before making important decisions is the key to navigating this transit effectively.
The Moon today comes into a passionate trine with Mars in Aquarius, aligning out intentions and emotions with the action we’re preparing to launch into following tomorrow’s powerful New Moon in Gemini.
Wednesday (6/13): At the last degrees of Gemini, this New Moon is all about clearing away old ways of thinking and communicating that are hindering our progress moving forward. Making space in this way allows for new, fresh energy to come into our lives in the form of new ideas, exciting conversations, and the curiosity and drive to learn new skills that better serve us moving forward. The Moon will go Void-of-Course at 12:43pm, immediately following the New Moon, and will remain VOC for the rest of today. This indicates that the second half of the day is best spent in reflection and contemplation, rather than in a state of initiation and activity.
The most intensified aspect to the Gemini New Moon will be a inconjunction/quincunx aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, indicating a fear of uncertainty and the potential to want to try to control what lies ahead through planning and manipulation tactics. It is important in this instance to actively surrender and trust that the Universe has a plan for us all during these times, as doing so can unlock incredible mental focus and psychic potential!

Mercury in Cancer comes into a supportive sextile with Uranus in Taurus, further intensifying and highlighting the mental clarity and inspiration brought on by today’s New Moon in Gemini. This aspect brings powerful downloads and flashes of insight that can provide new solutions to old problems and emotional dilemmas, but only if we allow it to be!
Venus today moves into the passionate, romantic sign of Leo where expressions of love and appreciation become much more dramatic and over-the-top! Under this influence, we want to feel proud of our partners and to show them off—as we should! Now is an excellent time for those in partnership to spice things up with some extra romance or to go out on the town for a dynamic and luxurious date night! For those who are currently unattached, this is still a wonderful time to spice things up by going out dancing or treating yourself to a sexy new outfit or a fancy dinner with some friends! :)
Thursday (6/14): The Moon moves into its nurturing and emotionally driven home sign of Cancer at 12:20am MST, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. The Moon will be making a series of mostly positive aspects to Uranus, Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter throughout the day today, indicating that this is an excellent day for inspiration, planning, putting in the hard work and looking toward the future from a broader perspective.
Venus today comes into a challenging square to Uranus in Taurus, shaking things up when it comes to our relationships, finances, femininity and self-worth! This aspect causes us to desire much greater freedom in all of our closest relationships, and where things are beginning to feel stuck and stagnant, Uranus is sure to rattle our cages and help us to break free! The energy of Venus and Uranus is best utilized for facing new challenges and creating excitement in relationships, or for becoming inspired to find new, more sovereign ways of dealing with finances!
Have a beautiful week everyone! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! :)
