Feeling weirdly carefree this summer? The new moon in Gemini is probably why



In life, there’s an eternal struggle between the things you should do and the stuff you’d really rather be doing. With summer finally here, it can feel even harder than usual to work your way through your to-do list.

Well, the universe is here with a clear message: Just enjoy yourself.

It’s all thanks to the new moon in Gemini, which is happening on June 6, 2024. During this new moon, you’ll be hyper-focused on putting the things you love front and center, while still finding a way to get must-haves done and out of the way, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.

Of course, it’s a little more complicated than that. Here’s what else your zodiac sign can expect from the new moon in Gemini.

What does the new moon in Gemini mean for your sign?

First, let’s cover some new moon basics. As you’re probably well aware, the moon goes through different phases each month, and a new moon is when it looks all but invisible from the earth. In astrology, each new moon syncs up with a different zodiac sign, causing its own vibe. As a result, the new moon can sway how you think and what you do during this time.

This new moon is in the sign of Gemini, and it’s delivering an easy-breezy summer feeling. But there’s also a strong connection with Venus, the planet of love and desire, in the mix. ‘Venus is all about doing the things we love,’ Page says. ‘It’s very powerful with this new moon.’

That can mean doing everything from planning extra dates with your S.O. to hitting up your neighborhood ice cream truck to recapture some of that nostalgia from when you were a kid. You’ll also be more likely to actually take time off from work because, ya know, that’s what vacation days are for.

At the same time, you’ll crave a little extra luxury in your life. Sure, you don’t have a Kardashian-level budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t splurge on a massage here and there or snap up VIP tickets to your local music festival. ‘This is really about doing things just because we want to do them,’ Page says.

Unfortunately, you can’t fully escape reality. ‘While there’s a very strong Gemini energy of being light and carefree, Saturn is this nagging voice in the background that says, ‘But what about your responsibilities?’’ Page says. Because the Gemini energy ‘doesn’t care’ about all that, Page says that ‘there is a little bit of a battle’ between what you should do and what you want to do.

So, while it sounds like a great idea to quit your job and become a roadie for Dua Lipa, maybe there’s a good middle ground in seeing a few of her shows this summer instead. Just something to think about…

The new moon will impact all zodiac signs, but Page says Gemini and Sagittarius will feel it the most.

How will the new moon in Gemini impact the rest of your year?

The vibe from the new moon in Gemini will technically only last a few days, but there’s some takeaway from all of this.

First, it never hurts to be reminded that you can and should be doing things that make you feel happy. The new moon in Gemini will issue a gentle reminder, but it’s one you can carry with you for the rest of the year and beyond. Maybe you’ll start scheduling in time just for yourself once a week going forward, or tap into a new hobby you can feel good about. As long as it brings you joy, it should be a go.

Also, finding that balance between living a 100% carefree life and still taking care of things you need to do to pay the bills and be a functioning member of society is a crucial life lesson. Once you can nail it, you’ll have the best of both worlds.

When is the next new moon?

The next new moon is on July 5, 2024, in the sign of Cancer. During this time, you’ll crave plenty of quality time with your family. For now, get out there and do what feels good to you—within reason, of course.
