It is important to remember that the Moon cycles through the signs of the zodiac every couple of days, and it’s important to check the time of day that it enters and leaves the sign, because that will vary depending on your geographical location. If in doubt, you can use this moon sign calculator.
Gemini rules things of a dual nature, words, cars, telephones, transportation, jack-of-all-trades, master of none, dual results, sleight-of-hand, thievery, basic education, low mysteries, storytelling, short trips, field trips, relatives in general, neighborhood and neighbors, rote learning, play it light, reading, radio, movement, trivia, flexible values, gossip and innuendo, mimicry, imitation, bridges and connections in general.
Communications, short distance travel, a Gemini Moon is dualistic in nature and rules over thievery, trickery, pulling a fast one, relatives, siblings and neighbors, and computers. Gemini lacks staying power and projects begun when moon is in this sign tend to change. Not a good sign for black magickal workings. More neutral in nature.
Magick ruled by Mercury has the best outcome at this time, this includes spells for the following:
- Cars and transportation in general
- Buying and selling
- Teaching and learning
- Tool consecration – especially wands, cards, pictures
- Gay, bi or cross gender issues
- Contacting the Goddess
Gemini is a sociable and intelligent air sign. Moon in Gemini is conducive to networking, bringing people together for a common purpose, communicating, sharing information, learning, and short trips. However, during this period it is often difficult to concentrate on one thing, everything at once seems fascinating. This provokes delays and schedule failures.
Gemini is considered a barren sign, so it is better not to plant fruit crops during the days of his lunar reign. You can plant lawn grass, ivy, ornamental plants. Inspite of the fact that it is considered a barren sign, astrologers claim that the moon in Gemini helps couples to conceive a boy.
Do NOT have surgical procedures performed on the shoulders, arms, hands, or nerves at this time.

Gemini Crystal Moon Meditation
Select a room that is quiet and softly illuminated. Clothing should be comfortable and shoes should not be worn.
Select your quartz crystal (a single or double terminated generator is suggested) about palm sized or larger and bless your crystal in advance. You may even place the crystal in the sunlight for an afternoon.
Once you are seated in a comfortable position, begin a rhythmic breathing sequence by inhaling deeply through the nose, holding the breath for three seconds and slowly exhaling from the mouth. As you inhale, visualize cleansing golden/white light vibrations entering your body through your nose, and traveling down your trachea and filling your lungs, chest cavity and heart center with warm, glowing sensations.
As you exhale, visualize discordant vibrations, tension, confusion, and stress leaving your body through your mouth in dark, cloudy swirls of energy. Bless yourself, and your discordant vibrations in the name of Spirit or any deity you deem fitting when you seek comfort, protection, and solace. Cast these discordant vibrations unto the ether to find peaceful resolution.
Pick up your clear quartz crystal with your left hand and begin to gaze upon it, observing the unique features it has to offer (rainbows, chlorite phantoms, healed fractures, mists, etc) allow your consciousness to merge with your crystal.
As you inhale, use both hands to hold your crystal. Feel the transmuted energy, peacefully flowing into your hands.
Let the crystal tell you about itself.
Your crystal may seem to come alive in your hand, you may experience warm, tingling sensations in your hands. For some these sensations may be calming giving you feelings that instantly make you feel at peace, or this may be a gradual process.
Gemini Moon Affirmation:
“I let go easily and quickly.
I communicate well and teach that skill to others.”
Meditating with the Gemini new moon and quartz crystal will offer much clarity to confusion, worry, or doubts in your mind. Making you feel weightless. Allow yourself to breathe deeply and be still. When you are ready to return from your meditation, count slowly from 10 to 1 and open your eyes.
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac. The sun enters Gemini at slightly different times each year, usually around May 21, sometimes the day before or the day after.
- Symbol: The Twins
- Element: Air
- Gemstone: Opal
- Keyword: I Think
The Gemini symbol comes from the twin stars Castor and Pollux, who were known to astrologers 8,000 years ago. The twins symbolize the dual nature of Gemini. Geminians are quick witted, skillful, and ingenious people who are interested in almost everything. They are extremely versatile. They enjoy learning, but learn best in short bursts of activity rather than in lengthy periods of concentration. Geminians have a way with words, and are usually excellent conversationalists.
From 365 Goddess, we have this for today:
- Themes: Communication; Creativity; Art; Humor; Playfulness
- Symbols: Paired Items
- Presiding Goddess: Iambe
Iambe means “speech,” indicating this goddess’s intimate connection with the art of communication. In Greek stories, Iambe always had a witty (and sometimes satirical) comeback. This may be why she was credited with creating the writer’s bane of iambic pentameter verse (a metered verse with two distinct accents). In mythology, Iambe used this form of poetry to cheer up Demeter, with tremendous success.
To Do Today:
Astrologically, the twins personify individuals who have dual natures: they are filled with charm and creativity but also seem elusive, like Iambe and her poetic method. You can remember Iambe and learn more about her style today by reading Shakespeare, one of the few humans to master it (or perhaps rent one of the recent Shakespearean movies).
If that’s not your proverbial cup of tea, use this invocation to Iambe as a prayer, part of a ritual, or whatever is appropriate for you:
Iambe, I sing your mystic poems.
From dots and titles, the magic’s sown.
With celestial pens, you scribe each spell,
and lessons in joy, may I learn them well.
Iambe, your metered muse confounds,
yet where’er it’s spoken, magic abounds,
full and fierce, potent and free,
and when I hear it I know, that magic is me!

With the Sun in Gemini, the urge for self-expression is strong. These natives are often just as interested in collecting information as they are in sharing it. Curious to a fault, Geminis have a finger in every pie.
Solar Geminis are flexible and changeable people. Their ability to adapt quickly to new situations generally gains them plenty of friends and social contacts. Usually quite clever and witty, Geminis enjoy intellectual conversations and they are easily bored if they are not getting enough mental stimulation.
Often quite adept at fitting in with others, Geminis easily adopt the moods of those around them. They are friends to people from all walks of life, and are not easily intimidated. Their ability to detach themselves can make Geminis very objective and observant, but a little difficult to get close to. Although they often have many friends, intimacy doesn’t come as easily to Solar Geminis.
It can be difficult to know what Gemini really feels at any given moment. They are often very impressionable and scattered. There is usually a nervous air to Geminis that can make more personal characters a little uneasy. It is not always intuitive to trust Geminis to be loyal or to keep secrets.
Geminis often flit about, moving quickly and keeping busy every step of the way. Many people with this position of the Sun have gained quite a bit of knowledge in their lifetimes, but they don’t often possess specialized knowledge. This is because Geminis have relatively short attention spans. Restlessness is especially common with this position of the Sun.
Usually quite affable, Geminis enjoy the “light” side of life. This tendency to take things lightly makes them quite pleasing to be around; but it can be maddening to people seeking support on the deeper issues in life.
Geminis are both interesting and interested. Their wit can be dazzling and their changeability dizzying. At the very least, Geminis will seldom bore you.

The Geminids is the king of the meteor showers. It is considered by many to be the best shower in the heavens, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 Phaethon, which was discovered in 1982.
The shower runs annually from December 7-17. It peaks this year on the night of the 13th and morning of the 14th. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
