This June’s New Moon is the second eclipse in the Gemini-Sagittarius axis eclipse season. May 26th saw a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in fiery and independent Sagittarius, and now it’s Sag’s opposite; Gemini the twins. This Solar Eclipse is affecting people with planets in the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, and at 15 to 25 degrees.
Look up your natal chart to refamiliarize yourself with your influencing planetary factors, specifically with this degree bracket. Any planets which lie in these four signs can provide key insight into what’s coming into the light and focus for you at this time.
Key things to be aware of:
- Gemini is a dual sign also known as ‘the Twins.’ This cerebral air sign is ruled by the planet Mercury, the ‘Messenger’ planet known for sound and well-developed communication skills. Gemini is intelligent, witty, perceptive, curious, and inquisitive. They love sharing their ideas and perspectives with the world, conversing with others about a range of topics, and exchanging information through on-point communication.
- Gemini is a colorful individual with a love of color, music, imagination, and art. They’re in tune with their inner child and love to play! Gemini is one of the most fun-loving, spontaneous, and high-spirited signs of the Zodiac… They thrive off of fast rapport and adventure, in addition to creativity and self-expression.
- A New Moon is a time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and new perspectives. The focus turns towards how we interact with the world when coupled with a Solar Eclipse. While a Lunar Eclipse is about our feelings, beliefs and internal world, a Solar Eclipse represents our external world and outer realities.

Casting your own magic spells takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you. This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.
As you’ll see, I offer castings for just about any purpose in both white magic and safe black magic options as well as the new moon and full moon enhanced castings. The new and full moon spells are a great way to boost the power of your spell as each moon-enhanced casting uses special items and materials that are known to work very well during these moon phases to strengthen your casting and may even lessen the manifestation time as well!

Key themes of This Month's New Moon
Get in tune with your Inner Child
Gemini New Moon highlights our need for play and self-expression. We are desiring to get in touch with our inner child, express ourselves through music, art and creativity, and let ourselves be the innocent and spirited beings that we are. Any illusions that have taken over your life will be eased in light of the Solar Eclipse’s powerful vibrations. If you’ve become too serious, ambitious, hard-working or simply disconnected from your inner child and free spirit, you will feel yourself navigate towards activities that allow you liberation and freedom. We’re inclined to play with siblings, cousins, lovers and kindred spirits- community is a key part of the Gemini spirit. We’ll also be wanting to connect to our imaginations.
It’s important to let love, light and inspiration flow through a number of creative and imaginative activities. Even if it’s just for a night or 2- 3 days (following the New Moon) you should make use of this portal into creative consciousness. Creativity can be explored and experienced through a number of pathways and outlets, not just traditional musical instrument playing, arts & crafts, and the like; although these are powerful ways to expand your consciousness. Dance, movement, and going outside in nature in the great outdoors are key routes back to your soul. Whatever your chosen activity, just make sure you’re allowing yourself freedom of self-expression. Focus on innocence and the joyous feelings and thoughts that arise with prue liberated play!
Self-expression is essential
We will be wanting to express ourselves much more during this Eclipse. This expands from the previous point; this one is relating to the ability to express our feelings, emotions, beliefs and philosophies. There’s an innate pull to express and communicate our truths this June. Remember that Gemini is ruled by the Messenger planet Mercury… Internal thought processes including our belief systems, how we feel about relationships and situations, and communication style and motivations want to come out in full force. A Lunar Eclipse is more about internal feelings, everything associated with the Moon and emotions, while this Solar Eclipse symbolizes the outer world. Inner to outer. Within to without.
In fact, Gemini is one of the most expressive signs. But, they’re also significantly emotionally blocked. Emotions are a tricky topic for this cerebral and “mental” (mind-based, thinking) sign. June’s Solar Eclipse opens doorways to heal emotional blocks and imbalance for effective and honest communication. Whereas emotional and instinctive signs (water and fire) use developed emotional intelligence and fine-tuned instinctual powers to interact with the outside world, air signs think, analyze, and rationalize. There’s a slight lack of instinct and intuitive awareness, yet the purpose of a New Moon coupled with a Solar Eclipse is to align with the higher mind.
A portal to the Higher Self…
Transformation is on the agenda. Eclipse season opens portals and doorways within to connect with our higher selves. This is amplified even more by the fact this Solar Eclipse is in cerebral and airy Gemini. Gemini rules the mind and the ego, so it is natural for some distortion and insecurity to seep through. Basically, this means that to reach the light, to align with the higher mind, we must first recognize our lower mind.
The shadow traits of Gemini include deception, manipulation, gossip, and spreading mistruths and false information. There is an aspect of superficiality associated with the ‘Twins’- they enjoy talking and chatting so much that depth and sincerity can become lost to the realm of ideas and rapport.
Their mind thrives from stimulation which leaves them steering towards ‘mind games’ and the like; it’s hard for them to slow down and feel, connect to emotional depth and further be vulnerable.
This means we are all likely to use the mind and intellect as a safety blanket, that is until we recognize the power of alchemical transformation available at this time. Manipulation tactics can be overruled with the higher mind & self once we see how ‘lower mind’ characteristics and traits unconsciously take over our social bonds and interactions.
Spend some time in meditation. Reconnect with the source of your soul and psyche, and draw, journal, write poetry, play music, and slow down. Artistic and imaginative self-expression is a highly effective way to overcome the shadow side of the mind and ego- the ego can be a positive thing! The ego represents self-knowledge and personal identity when attuned to a higher consciousness vibration and frequency. Of course, any Eclipse brings celestial energy which activates hidden and unseen qualities, strengths, and abilities.
*You also might want to refer back to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius from last month. May and June’s Eclipse season lies on the Gemini-Sagittarius; Sagittarius represents the higher mind, everything related to Jupiter and philosophy, higher wisdom and learning, and spiritual ideals…*
Open your mind, expand your consciousness
It’s all about opening your mind and expanding your consciousness. Lower to higher, ego to higher self, thinking to knowing… The Solar Eclipse New Moon provides an opening to reconnection, elevated consciousness.
The mind is a powerful tool. Read more books, watch or listen to more documentaries, learn about astrology, quantum physics, energy healing, and metaphysics, and discover a range of new and wisdom-infused teaching. Consider reading up on Reiki, Shamanism, or Herbal Medicine. Alternative and holistic subjects & pathways are a key way to naturally gravitate away from the lower mind, gossip and deception and towards more useful and enlightening expressions.
Seek out inspiration and educational opportunities. These will equally help with your career and finances too. Start at the root, your mind, which is a source of inspiration and communication; and then see what unfolds. And, don’t be scared of being vulnerable and expressing your innermost feelings.
Open up to those closest to you because there is considerable opportunity for healing and release. Consider Sagittarius’ bravery and courage. Finally, find balance within… Gemini and Sagittarius are opposites, they are directly opposite each other in the Zodiac wheel.
This is a call for balance, inner harmony, and a unification of opposites. Balancing internal polarities and eclectic mixes of energies allows for wholeness.
