The Moon is the Mistress of the emotional realms of life.

Her movements through the sky affect us on the deepest layers of our beingthe feeling layers – that so often we modern humans are not very well trained in navigating.

In the birth chart, it’s said that the natal Moon sign is much more revealing than the natal Sun. This means that the zodiac sign the Moon was in when you were born, has more of an effect on who you truly are, than the zodiac sign of the Sun. (So if you’re into astrology… that’s a BIG deal!)
It’s just that for most folks, this lunar side is a side that you likely keep hidden. (Well, the Moon does that too…😉 )

The natal Moon is often more expressed in children. And in lovers, close friends, and people who show up with you vulnerably.

My eldest son has a Virgo Sun. But it’s his Sagittarius Moon that I see shaping him more in his days of boyhood. His yearning to explore – this world and the imaginary, literary worlds that live in the books he devours.

Your natal Moon will also often, uncannily reflect how you were mothered and how this has gone on to shape who you are (and how you, in turn, mother).

So, the Moon represents our emotions, sensitivities, instincts, and maternal stories. She informs our intuitive reactions and our subconscious leanings.

As an ancient Goddess of the feminine mysteries, the Moon also influences the body. As she circles the Earth, the tides within our own bodies tend to rise and fall. So parts of you will feel enlivened or dulled, soothed or enflamed, depending on how her energies land in your own miraculous physicality.

As the Moon spins hew way around the Earth, she spends between 1 and 4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign.

Some people are super-tuned into her celestial shifts, and people hardly feel her influence at all. It depends on you, your make-up, your attention, and on SO many internal and external factors. But as a collective, the Moon sign has a definite, though sometimes subtle overriding effect on the energetic “weather” of each day. This means that if you know what today’s Moon sign is, you have a better chance of navigating her emotional waves.

What is the Moon in Gemini?

The energy of the Zodiac sign Gemini is speedy, sociable, witty, and always buzzing with connections.

This astrological transit often feels breezy and fast, as the mental body is activated so thoughts can go spinning at a hundred miles per hour!

As the sign of the twins, it also implies a sense of duel perspectives – you may keep leaping from one idea to another, one task to the next, or from one distraction to whatever crosses your path (or your inbox!) next. For this reason, if focus is required, it may take more effort than under other Moons.

Yet on the other side of the coin, a Gemini Moon can bring an unlimited stream of inspiration, in the form of thoughts, ideas, connections, and “what if” type possibilities. Keep a journal close by so that you can jot it all down before the next download comes through!

The influence of the twins can also, confusingly, cause options to shift at lightning speed. So this astrological transit is NOT a time to hold people to their word. Don’t be offended if tongues seem a little more free than usual…

Gemini Moons can also bring into the spotlight our connections to other people. But we’re not talking about deep, intimate relationships. This lunar energy is more about networks, and the acquaintances, colleagues, and companions who branch out from you like a central stem.

Expect to feel extra sociable.

And extra enthusiastic about picking up the phone and following up on that lead… As Gemini moves through the collective, of course, so will others. SO you’ll likely find your mobile beeping and your inbox is red hot. Well, I did mention the distractions….!

As a mutable sign, Gemini is comfortable with change. Dare to be flexible under this Moon. As a mutable air sign, it can feel flighty and restless. Combat this by NOT chaining yourself to a desk, or berating yourself if you can’t keep on task.

Include plenty of movement in your day. And breath. Plenty of breath.

The Moon in Gemini Body

If you’re physically affected by la Luna’s transit through the sign of Gemini, then you’ll likely feel it in the form of nervous energy, especially in your shoulders, arms and hands. In fact, many folks born with their natal moon in the sign of the twins are life’s winning fidgets.

This Moon also affects the lungs and pleuritic sac. For this reason, plenty of fresh air is recommended, especially if you have a weakness in this area. Avoid smoking or heavily polluted areas. For healing under a Gemini Moon, breathwork (with the support of a qualified professional) can do wonders.
