The May New Moon will take place Friday, May 22nd at 1:38 pm EST in the sign of Gemini. Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. The planet of our thinking, mind, and how we communicate.
The new moon phase is a time to plant seeds in the form of intentions. Performing a New Moon Ritual and intentionally choosing to set intentions that are associated with Gemini energy, adds strength to all your wishes and goals you wish to see manifest into your reality.
When the new moon is in Gemini, it is a great time to focus on manifesting things such as:
New Ways Of Communicating
New Things To Learn
Short Distance Travel
Communication From Others
Since Gemini also rules the hands, lungs, and breathing system, this is also an ideal time to do healing rituals for these areas. Throat chakra work is also ideal at this time.
Self Discovery, Passion, and Purpose
At this time many are rediscovering themselves. There is this sense of finally knowing what it is you need to do after a long time of being confused about what direction to take. You are coming into balance with yourself.
Even though partnership is coming up, I see it taking a backseat to your dreams Many will be setting intentions that are rightfully selfish. The focus will be on self-discovery, passion, and purpose, and stepping into your destiny. Between now and the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 5th, you will be divinely guided towards people, opportunities, and experiences that can point you towards your true north.
The energy is very positive, uplifting, and exciting. It always is when we find pieces of ourselves we lost or never knew existed. Your job is to receive all the goodness that is being sent your way that may be disguised as small milestones. Celebrate the small things and the small improvements in yourself and in your life. Most importantly, show gratitude to spirit for showing up for you.
When things are going right, there is usually someone or something that comes in to distract or test us. This time is no different. This is your forewarning that something or someone may try to intentionally or unintentionally try to deter you by making you feel down or incapable of being the person you are trying to become. This can even be your own inner critic. Regardless of how this energy shows up, it only has the power you give it. Be the goddess you are and stand firm in what you know is true for yourself. You got this!
Sample Gemini New Moon Intentions:
“I choose to receive a vehicle that I love and feel like a goddess driving. This vehicle is reliable and safe and allows me to physically get from one destination to the next.
“I choose to receive a mind that is peaceful and calm. I can think clearly and make clear and sound decisions.”
“I choose to easily express my wants, needs, and desires to the universe and others. Speaking my truth comes naturally to me and others receive my words and respect them.”
"I choose to receive the ability to connect socially with others in an uplifting way. Speaking life into those who come into contact with me and receiving the same in return."
“I choose to easily find myself thinking on my feet and giving accurate and intelligent responses.”
