Attention all you moon mavens out there: Today, on June 4th, the Gemini New Moon will be making an appearance in the night sky. Aside from giving special meaning to what we see when we look up at night, this new moon symbolizes something significant for all of us here on Earth.

If you remember correctly, last month’s memorable moon was the Flower Moon. It appeared on May 21st and represented a time of rebirth. Now, as you all know, change isn’t always easy to accept, which may explain why the Flower Moon made you feel as though you were entering the Unknown. Luckily, according to Nylon, we now have the Gemini New Moon to help us let go of the past.

However, the Gemini New Moon is a tricky one because it tends to cause overthinking. On one hand, this could mean that you’re going to be prepared for whatever obstacles life throws your way. On the other hand, it may mean that you’re going to come in contact with many obstacles that throw your life into disarray.

This mutable Grand Cross New Moon has change written all over it – changes of direction, changes of heart, changes of mind and changes of circumstances,” explains Divine Harmony. “It’s not a typical New Moon as usually New Moons are powerful times to plant seeds and set intentions – but this New Moon … is actually about discerning Truth in one’s life and making necessary decisions that have to do with … releasing of the past before the new can truly take hold.”

Essentially, the Gemini New Moon is all about balance. With every bad thing that happens, there’s always something good to look forward to. Unfortunately, that also means that with every success, there’s going to be a period of failure.

Mystic Mamma reveals that if we are greatly affected by the Gemini New Moon, it signifies that we’re prepared to start anew in certain areas of our lives. While this may be a scary thought, what can help is taking the time to self-reflect and take care of yourself. Don’t be afraid to quiet your mind as you focus on self-love and prepare yourself for this new chapter in your life.

Ultimately, when you look up at the moon tonight, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to take a deep breath and embrace all the magic that’s guiding you on your journey.
