A new moon is upon us, which is always a good time to plant new seeds and get ready for them to grow. This is the fresh start, the beginning of the journey, the beginning intention. Here's 5 things to do for the Gemini New Moon.
Meditation can be done at any time of the moon phases, but meditation during the new moon is always a good shout. Before starting any ritual, you should make sure you're in a good headspace to be able to properly focus on what it is you want to do be doing. The new moon is a chance for you to ask for what you really need. Focussing on fresh starts, the power of meditation will help you clear that high-active mind, and any flighty Gemini qualities, and instead focus on specifics. Gemini is the airy sign that can get distracted a little too quickly, so make sure you're catching those straying thoughts and keeping only the important ones.
A new moon is always a great time to start something new: maybe a new business venture, or maybe a new project. You may be asking yourself, how can I work with the new moon phase? The new moon is always a great time for setting intentions and goals. This is your time to get clear on what it is you want, and know that you can get them. How can I manifest? Simply get a piece of paper and a pen, and write in the present tense what it is you want. For example, if you're trying to get a new car, write 'I am so happy with my brand new car'. You want to act as though this is already yours. Doing so will let the universe know that you are expecting it to happen, and soon it will.
If you're a witch that works with the moon phases, spell work on the new moon will come naturally to you. Consider spells for prosperity, growth, new beginnings, fresh starts and banishing during the new moon. Many will say a full moon is the time to let go, and it is, but banishing spells have their place in the new moon cycle, too. Use the new moon to focus on the new, and let go of the old.
Sit with the moon
Unlike a full moon, you probably won't get to see the new moon, and that's okay. Instead, sit outdoors, or by a window, and know that the moon is with you. Take this time to reflect, and to focus on what it is you want. You can even speak aloud, letting the moon know what it is you need, want, and hope to get. Intention setting is key during the new moon, and your belief is just as powerful. Take this moment to just be present.
Got some tarot cards on hand? Great! Do a three card spread to get an idea of how you're going to get what you're intending to get. Tarot can offer you guidance and clarity, and when you're using the new moon cycle to start something new, tarot is there to reassure you of the road ahead. Don't have tarot? Consider getting a reading from a professional tarot reader!
There is so much potent energy from the new moon, and embodying the happy-go-lucky of Gemini energy is a perfect way to celebrate this moon phase. Go out there knowing that anything is possible. Relax, unwind, and have fun.
