Between Mercury entering its dramatic retrograde period and an intense eclipse season, May’s astrological climate has been especially rocky. But expect the May 2022 new moon to welcome fresh new perspectives and an opportunity to actualize your goals. Arriving on May 30, la Luna enters multifaceted Gemini, encouraging us to vocalize our needs and question everything. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the May 2022 new moon, this lunation will feel more like a push to explore new ideas and jumpstart personal projects rather than symbolize a tense period of reflection.

In astrology, new moons both restart the lunar cycle and symbolize new beginnings, making it a perfect time to kickstart projects and manifest. But with dizzying Mercury retrograde causing confusion, you may want to hold off on jumping into any manifestation practices. This lunation is making a cameo in multi-tasking master Gemini, inspiring us to follow our curiosity and philosophize deeper meanings of life. Those most impacted by this lunation may experience blockages when it comes to self-expression or the overwhelm of juggling too many commitments at once.

The zodiac signs most impacted by this lunation may find it easier to speak with their heart with Venus, the planet of love, sitting comfortably in its home sign of Taurus. But it gets a little turbulent when you consider the retrograde season. “We’re handling multiple retrograde planets — Mercury and Pluto — that are bringing about sweeping changes on a collective level. The new moon in Gemini is offering a glimpse into an exciting new beginning,” Lauren Ash, an astrologer, tells Bustle.

Gemini is all about diversifying our skills, and those who are feeling the easy-going air sign’s energy the most are in a great spot to balance everything with confidence. Keep reading to find out if you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the May 2022 new moon.

Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 - April 19)

The new moon is creating tension in areas of self-expression, Aries. As a cardinal fire sign, it’s important for you to vocalize your needs and express yourself. But this lunation is targeting your ability to communicate and connect with others. On the flip side, a transit involving your planetary ruler, Mars, and Jupiter, the planet of luck, are giving you an extra dose of fiery confidence. “However, it’s important to be mindful of potential communication mishaps thanks to Mercury retrograde occurring alongside this lunation,” explains Ash. “Be mindful of others' perspectives and choose your words carefully to avoid misunderstandings during this new chapter.”

With Mercury retrograde making room for plenty of mistakes combined with your impulsivity, you may want to make sure you’re tagging and CC’ing the right people in emails and texts. “You’ve been making major career moves lately as well, so double-check all important communications before pressing send.”

Gemini Zodiac Signs (May 21 - June 20)

May’s new moon is occupying your house of self, putting your sense of self and your connection with your physical world at the forefront, Gemini. You may feel extra pressure to finalize things and meet deadlines, so prepare for turbulence when it comes to work. “This lunation is about finishing up a major personal project or goal and setting your sights on the next challenge,” Ash says. “You’ve been stepping into a more mature side of your personality recently, and rewards for your hard work are just around the corner.”

Although you may feel overwhelmed, it’s a good time to lean on your relationships with others. “Mars and Jupiter will cross your eleventh house of friendships and social connections, so don’t be shy about reaching out to friends or coworkers in a pinch,” explains Ash.

Virgo Zodiac Signs (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

It’s game time, Virgo, and this lunation is about getting you to recalibrate after Mercury retrograde threw a wrench into the professional plans you’ve made this year. “Now is the time to set your eyes on the prize and refocus on your professional goals. Consider where you want to be in your career in the next year and create tangible goals for how to get there,” says Ash. It’s a good idea to revisit your vision boards and the goals you’ve set for yourself and create a new course of action for the ones that you have yet to reach.
