June's New Moon in Gemini Wants You To Spread Your Wings and Fly
It’s time to be bold and brave.
On June 18, 2023’s first (and only) new moon in Gemini rises in the sky, ushering in a wave of the twins’ trademark spontaneity, intellectual charm and magnetic energy.
Ruled by the planet Mercury, the flighty air sign is a master of communication, using their gift of gab to get what they want.

After planting the seeds for an abundant summer during the trio of Taurus-Scorpio eclipses, now is the time to reap the benefits of your hard work. Geminis are not ones to feel guilty about pleasure and neither should you.
