Ready to explore new ideas, Gemini? This lunation is community-focused, and it’s headed for your house of philosophy, so it’s a great time to connect with people who align with your values but you can also learn a few new tricks from.

“With Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini, retrograding now, you might have felt a little out of sorts in the last few weeks — so this will be a good time to socialize and relax by catching up with your friends,” Yana Yanovich, resident astrologer for the Nebula app, tells Bustle. “The energy of Aquarius is about connecting to like-minded people, so activities like joining a new gym or visiting a lecture on the subject that interests you would be a good idea now. Gemini thrives when they’re sharing and exchanging information so even an extra dose of social media would do you good now — so go ahead and post that picture from last year’s vacation you haven’t got around to doing.”

You’re a natural socialite, Libra, and this new moon is all about that airy, friendly energy. Fellow air sign Aquarius is helping you tap into your inner artist, so use this lunation to recharge your social batteries while you explore your authentic and creative side.

“In accordance with the energy of socializing and joining the community which is in the air during this new moon in Aquarius, people born under the sign of Libra will feel best when following this impulse in a cultural setting.

This will be a great opportunity to connect, interact and feel integrated. It will be good to focus this urge on some kind of volunteer work — there’s bound to be something in your city or town that strikes a chord with you, be it helping people, animals, or in nature,” says Yanovich.
