Gemini New Moon + Venus Cazimi + Square Saturn in Pisces

Uncategorized Jun 06, 2024

The New Moon in Gemini on Thursday, June 6 at 8:37 am EST at 16 degrees begins a lunar cycle of prolific fertility as Venus is the heart of Sun, not long after her Cazimi is exact. Gemini, sign of the twins, is eager to spread the message of Venusian beauty, art, friendship, love and pleasure. However, a square from authoritative Saturn in sacred Pisces restricts the glee, reigning in distractions to serve a greater responsibility. The alchemy of temperance is a theme this lunar cycle in order to balance the dispersive air energy with the demands of constructive Saturn.

This lunation cycle is seeding a month of busyness, distraction and overwhelm, such is the nature of the Gemini stellium which features the Moon, Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter. We may have no choice but to juggle numerous tasks and relationships, which, while it can be a fun and sociable time it can be a challenge to focus and accomplish our goals.

Management guru Jim Collins famously noted, "If you have more than three priorities, you have no priorities."

Enter Saturn, whose tough love enforces maturity, structure and efficiency. As Saturn squares the New Moon, Venus and the Sun from June 6-9, it's time to get real on our top priorities which may mean scaling back on excesses. What gives us comfort, who we spend our time with, where we spend our resources and where we aim our purpose are under pressure at this time to focus and commit.

It's worth bearing in mind that the Full Moon of this lunar cycle will be in Capricorn on June 21, so we'll want to be sure to heed Saturn's advice of focus, work and responsibility to make the most of the potential for achievement.

Mercury, the quick-witted ruler of Gemini is in the mix now as well until June 17. Gemini, sign of the Twins, rules doubles and multiples so while it may be next to impossible to focus on just one priority at a time, we may at least try to become more adept at multitasking two of them. This is a great time for sociability, gossip, learning and even roadtrips and we may find ourselves trying on multiple personas depending upon whom we're surrounded by.

Jupiter has recently begun its year-long transit through Gemini where it will be until June 2025, so we're just embarking on the information expansion and overwhelm journey. It will make squares to restrictive Saturn in Pisces on several occasions, suggesting an expansion-restriction journey ahead affecting our Gemini-Pisces houses and activities. Now is the time to bring awareness of areas of potential that require optimistic hope tempered with patience and commitment for long-term progress.
