We're quickly approaching our first solar eclipse of 2021's eclipse season and it's taking place in the sign of Gemini. Solar eclipses are super charged new moons that occur when the moon is positioned directly between the Earth and the moon. The energy of solar eclipses are much more potent than your typical new moon.
Both the sun and moon are in Gemini, which is the mutable air sign that is highly sociable, intelligent, and adaptable. It craves social and mental stimulation of all kinds and is considered to be very outgoing. For this new moon, here are some things you can focus on.
LOUD + CLEAR
Gemini is ruled by Mercury (which is currently in retrograde), the planet of communication. In mythology, Mercury is the messenger of the gods. During this new moon, it will be important to state your desires and intentions as loudly and clearly as possible. Get really specific with what it is you want and don't be afraid to own it, details and all. Write it all down, vocalize it, and claim it as your own, as if it were already done.
Duality is inherent to the Gemini nature. As you focus on your new moon intentions, Gemini is here to remind us that there are dualities within all of us. Embrace these dualities and use it to your benefit. Geminis are known for analyzing things from all angles and taking different perspectives into consideration. Taking a look at these dualities will help you get crystal clear on what it is you want.
TRUST YOUR INTUITION
Above all else, it's important to remember to tap into your intuition and trust your instincts this new moon. Gemini will no doubt spur on lots of curiosity and mental chatter, which may lead to confusion or second guessing. Listening to your intuition in this way mean you might not have all the answers, and that's okay. As long as you're following what feels right for you, that means you're on the right path.
