━═★New Moon Blessings ★═━
The New Moon in Gemini occurs on 23rd May, 2020 (with its zenith at 3.38am, Brisbane Time). Although New Moon energy is felt during the following four weeks of its zenith, the intensity of the New Moon will be felt from the day before the zenith till the day after the zenith. Therefore, the energies will be magnified more than usual.
A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28-day cycle. The spiritual connection focus of this New Moon gives you an opportunity to spend time and/or renewing your beliefs and your relationship with the Divine.
Those who have Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces in their natal charts, will feel this New Moon significantly.
━═★ What does that mean for you? ★═━
During the following four weeks influenced by this Gemini New Moon cycle, communication, travel, goals/ambition and dreams will be highlighted. How this manifests for you may be subtle or may be an ‘in your face/are you taking notice of this’ situation.
This energy reminds me of the song by Pseudo Echo: “Are you listening?” Notice during this energetic cycle how people and especially how you communicate. There will be lots of sprouting off and shouting during this time. Rather than allowing this to upset your applecart, endeavour to understand the motivation or intention behind each communication. For yourself, try to be non-threatening, friendly and a good listener.
During this time, answers may be ‘just out of reach’ or you may also realise that there is no ‘one’ answer.. rather there are many roads which lead to Rome.
You may also notice that one minute, you are all Indiana Jones ready to take on the world with just a cocky hat and a whip. Next minute, you wish to withdraw from your goals because they are too hard/slow/unattainable. Try not to throw the baby out with the bathwater, during this cycle. Give yourself time to BREATHE.. after all, Gemini is an Air sign!
━═★ Ritual/Healing Suggestions ★═━
Gemini New Moon energy is perfect for a moonlight ritual because Gemini is an Air Sign. This ritual is for pumping up your imaginative mojo.
In preparation for your Moon Ritual, you can collect:
- A candle and candleholder – blue or orange would be my choices but any will do.
- Incense or essential oil – bergamot, lavender or just use what you have/appeals
- Journal /paper and pen
- Crystals – as per the guide written below.
- A glass of water
Place the candle, crystals, incense, water, journal and pen on a safe, firm surface near where you wish to conduct the ritual. This could be a table, a bench, chair or shelf.
Make yourself comfortable within the space you have chosen.
Light the candle. Light the incense or start the aromatic diffuser or anoint yourself with the oil. If you choose to anoint yourself, place a small dab of your chosen oil/oils at your third eye, wrists and just below your belly button.
As I light this candle on this night
I ask the Great Mother to be by my side
For healing, grace, joy and ease
To benefit all for the highest good, please.
Make sure the candle is safe while you Moon bathe. Collect any crystal or crystals to take with you outside.
If possible, go outside and see the New Moon sky. Notice the possibilities of thousands of stars. If the weather is inclement, notice how the clouds move or how the rain smells.
Stay in the moonlight for as long as you feel led. Feel the breeze. Hear the sounds. Allow yourself to “moon-dream” for as long as you wish (that’s the night-time version of daydreaming). If everything were possible, what would you wish to create in your life? Time? Abundance? Solid relationships? A creative endeavour?
Once you have finished Moon bathing, go to your journal and pen and try to capture all your moon-dreams on paper. Nothing is too silly or far-fetched. Take a moment to reflect on what you can do tomorrow to begin reaching for these dreams.
Fold your paper on which you have written. Drink the water, leaving a small amount to sprinkle on the piece of paper.
Ground yourself and, if you choose, recite the “Gemini Moon of Dreaming” verse below.
You may choose to keep your piece of piece of paper in your sacred space – along with some appropriate Geminian crystals.
Gemini energy asks you to focus and be clear while seeing both sides of the story. You may like to set yourself the following tasks for the next 28 days ( or just select one each day):
- Complimenting one person per day – sincerely, genuinely
- Complimenting yourself every day
- Naming, out loud, something during the day for which you are grateful.

━═★ Gemini New Moon Magick ★═━
When the Moon is in Gemini, you may notice everything and everyone is easily distracted. This applies to you too! It is a time when the superficial seems stable. Any conclusions, judgements or computations are subject to quicksilver changes and a lack of clarity. Gemini Moon energy enhances the range of possibilities and allows you to see ‘both sides’ at one time.
A perfect time to buy or bless any magickal tools involving besoms, athames or other objects you associate with Air.
A Gemini New Moon is beneficial for magick concerning:
- Communication with other realms and your Higher Self
- Clearing the air i.e. misunderstandings
- Developing workshops, book outlines, presentations, marketing plans
- Brainstorming and divergent thinking
- Expanding your sphere of influence or network
- New insight into the Mysteries
- Banishing or releasing through the Element of Air.
━═★ New Moon Healing Event ★═━
This healing list is FREE for any and all who wish to receive Reiki over the 72 hours commencing on 22nd May, 2020.
The beauty of a healing event is that there is no need to ATTEND, only INTEND to receive its benefit.
A New Moon Healing event uses the energies of the New Moon to further personal and spiritual development. The easiest way to engage with energetic healing is to give your permission. I have a crystal grid set up and the energy has been asked to be sent to and received by any who wish to receive.
Receiving the healing energy simply requires your permission.
You do this by stating: I allow and receive all healing energy I require.
Some people like to take this further by:
- sitting in the moonlight and meditating
- creating their own crystal grid
- writing in their journal
- looking after their own body – water, sleep and recreation
- finding ways to express themselves
- encouraging themselves to be aware.
If you find yourself feeling anxious and fearful, put your shoulders back, breathe deeply and say out loud: “I am the powerful creator of my Universe. I choose my co-creators wisely.”
May the New Moon’s blessings be yours
Make a magickal day!
