Mercury Retrograde Helps Us Find the Right Words During the Gemini New Moon

Gemini New Moon: May 30, 2022 4:30 am PDT, 7:30 am EDT, 11:30 UTC


During the upcoming Gemini New Moon Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is in retrograde in Taurus.

Mercury and Gemini are both about communication, language, computation, ideas, words, problem solving, and other functions that involve the processing of information and data.

When Mercury is retrograde, communication goes inward, bringing a need for reflection, review, reconsideration, and reevaluation.

Because Taurus is an earth sign, the sign of the senses, routines, and the rhythms of nature, this reflection and review takes place in practical ways and forms. It brings the potential for new ways of thinking or structuring our ideas.

New Moons are a good time to set intentions as we plant the seeds for the coming Moon cycle. Because Mercury is retrograde in Taurus, there is a focus on methodical approaches and thinking through the ways we can ultimately put new ideas into practice.

It’s also a great New Moon for putting a deeper truth into words.

Take time out (ideally in nature, or at least with something beautiful like a flower or a delicious cup of tea) to put thoughts and feelings into words. You might ask yourself:

  • What nourishes you that you are you grateful for?
  • What does your heart need to feel grounded?
  • What does your mind need to function optimally?

This New Moon brings an opportunity to create a strong foundation for being more of your authentic self in the world. Taking the time to find the right words for yourself will help you bolster your own courage, so you can speak, offer, and share more fully from your heart.
