In this lunar cycle, our New Moon is on May 30 at 7:30 am EDT.
In astrology, the New Moon is a time of new beginnings and wiping the slate clean. It is when we set our intention for the lunar month ahead (until the next New Moon). These intentions begin to grow during the next 30 days and culminate six months later at the Full Moon in Gemini.
Gemini is all about communication and connection, so this New Moon will have us seeking new ways of fostering connections with others, and even collaborating on projects and goals. If you're a writer, this New Moon is just what you needed to spark the muse, as Mercury-ruled Gemini can wax poetic for hours. Whatever intention you set at this New Moon, it is the starting block for a six-month cycle that culminates on November 30.
The one thing to note is that Mercury is currently retrograde, so anything begun now will have a slow start and you won't see things moving until mid to late June.
What thoughts keep circling your mind that you need to communicate with someone else?
How do you collaborate or work with others?
