On June 3, you may notice that the sky looks darker than it usually does, and there's an important reason for that: this is the night of the June new moon, which is rising in Gemini. A new moon occurs whenever the moon aligns perfectly with the sun, and from here on Earth, it looks like there's no moon at all... or just a tiny sliver of one. As the first part of the lunar cycle, a new moon holds a lot of significance, and will impact everyone (some zodiac signs might feel this more than others, though). So, how is the June new moon going to affect your zodiac sign?
This new moon, like every other, is a time of new beginnings and change. A new moon is a symbol of something new starting, both in the galaxy and in your life. This is an excellent time to move forward on something you've been wanting to do, to implement change into your lifestyle, and to rebuild yourself. It's a great time to recharge and get ready to embark on something a bit more exciting. As astrologer Aliza Kelly explained to Bustle, "During this lunation, there is no nocturnal illumination. Likewise, with limited visibility, we should focus our gaze inward. This is an excellent time to reflect, ruminate, and set intentions."
The fact that the new moon is in Gemini holds its own meanings as well. Bustle spoke to astrologer Lisa Stardust about it, who explained, "The Gemini new moon is a time of logical reflection. However, our sentiments will be called upon, forcing us to swerve from rational thinking and become extra emotional in our decisions." In other words, you can expect a bit of a bumpy ride here thanks to Gemini's infamous split personality. This new moon is all about communication and self-expression, which can be a bit intense sometimes.
Kelly added, "The new moon in Gemini is especially meaningful because it’s the last of its kind before eclipse season, which means that the intentions we set today should carry us through until August."
