Happy new moon! There are a lot of planetary energies swirling about today, but our new moon is also calling us to be still and take stock of what’s been going on and what we want to manifest over the next six months.
The New Moon in Gemini Occurs at 1:39 PM
Gemini rules communication and mental stimulation, so don’t be surprised if you’re being flooded with new dreams and schemes right about now. You may be waking up in the middle of the night to write down ideas before you forget them. Your energy might be abuzz with the sense of new beginnings—which feels like excitement but also slightly like overwhelm and anxiety.
You could also be acutely aware of your own limiting beliefs and thought patterns—things that need to be cleared to make way for all of this newness.
That introspection is the new moon calling. She always draws us inward and asks us to set our intentions for the weeks and months ahead.
This is a time to slow down, gather your thoughts, and do some deep, meditative work on what’s coming up for you. It’s also a time to focus on what you’d like to manifest over the next six months. We’ve put together a new moon ritual to help you suss all of that out.
New Moon in Gemini Abundance Ritual
For this ritual, you’ll need a grounding essential oil blend, a journal and pen, and a deck of oracle cards.
Take a moment to center yourself. Anoint yourself with your oils on the forehead, back of the neck, and over your heart. Then cup your hands over your nose and take three deep breaths.
In your journal, write down the mantra “The Abundance of the Universe flows in me and through me. I am the Universe wrapped in skin. There’s nothing I need that I can’t find within.”
Repeat that out loud.
Then write down the thoughts, ideas, and dreams that have been coming up for you recently. Write them as purposeful intentions you want to achieve over the next six months, and clearly visualize yourself accomplishing them as you write.
With your intentions in mind, pull a few oracle cards for direction or clarity. I like to pull three cards:
First Card: Where am I currently at in this situation?
Second Card: What does my ideal manifestation of these goals look like?
Third Card: How do I get from here to there?
Meditate and journal on what the cards bring up for you. When you feel like you’ve received all you need, seal your ceremony by burning your intentions outdoors or in a fire-safe vessel.
