The new moon in Gemini approaches this Wednesday, giving us an opportunity to end one cycle and begin another. Gemini, an air sign, is naturally curious, yet detached. Under this sign's influence, we learn to communicate, observe, and ask questions about our environment. By being inquisitive and engaging with others, we open ourselves up to the rest of the world. But we'll have to be mindful about how we interact with people this week. The trouble with Gemini is that it can lead us to focus so much on controversy and cleverness that we overlook how our style of communication might harm others.
With Mercury moving into Cancer ahead of the new moon, our thinking and communications slow down to become more heart-centred. You may want to think twice about what you want to tell someone before saying it out loud. This isn’t the week to be extra clever just because you can. Mercury and Saturn will be demanding thoughtful, considerate and responsible communication — vulnerability earns you more respect than one-upping the person next to you. Adding to our sensitive stew this week is Venus, who will move out of nurturing Cancer and into regal Leo. While in this fiery sign, she doesn’t appreciate getting teased or being the butt of anyone’s jokes, so mind your manners. This week Venus will also meet up with Uranus, where she’s more likely to suddenly begin or end partnerships with others if her values are insulted. Things are changing. Either get on board or get left behind!
