The Big Picture:
A bright and breezy Gemini New Moon this week helps us to multi-task, but also provides many distractions. Power struggles may well be one of those distractions, as evidenced by the potent and difficult Venus-Pluto square. Whether in love or money, things may not be quite what they seem for a few days.
Don’t get caught up in a struggle between competing egos. You don’t need to prove yourself to your opponent, so why not just walk away? Clever communication skills, courtesy of the New Moon, mean that you could still paint this as a “win”.
Secrets and lies emerge when you least expect it, so if you have anything to hide this could be a tense week. However, the New Moon focuses on your core values, so stay true to yourself and ride out the storm with dignity.
Seemingly well meaning advice from a friend may come with an ulterior motive attached. Keep your own counsel where possible. A New Moon in your own sign reminds you that you don’t have to lean on anyone else. You’re strong.
Unethical dealings at work dominate your week, and you’re unsure what to do about it. Whistleblowing may be an option, and the New Moon will protect your privacy if you choose this path. What do you feel in your heart would be right?
If you’re separated from a lover by distance, this could be a testing week. Friends are a strong source of support, and tech should help you to keep in touch. Don’t give up on your partnership – it’s stronger than you think.
It may be tempting to punish an old rival, or to extract revenge in some way. Don’t do it! That would be stooping to someone else’s level. Focus on positive developments at work instead. The New Moon highlights promotion possibilities.
Tensions in your love life come to a head and there may be a difficult decision to be made. However, the New Moon has a healing vibe. Talking things over can bring closeness and resolution, no matter what the problem is.
Spiteful comments about your image are cutting this week and it’s hard not to feel hurt. Use the communicative power of the New Moon to talk over your feelings with a trusted ally. Being confident in your own skin takes practice.
Passion and drama in your love life may be intoxicating – and even slightly dangerous or obsessive. You’re playing with fire and you know it. The New Moon will help you stabilize an existing relationship….if you even want to, that is.
Family dynamics are tricky, with someone attempting to undermine other relatives. The best way to deal with this is to mind your own business. Don’t get involved unless you have to. The New Moon will keep you busy elsewhere.
There’s a mystery or intrigue this week, which you’re determined to investigate. Be aware, however, that you might not like what you find out. Bold moves in your creative life will pay off, so why not pour your emotions out through art?
Keep a tight watch on your money, as someone is being manipulative or dishonest with you financially. The New Moon helps you to think on your feet, so you can probably outsmart this person – but don’t hesitate to get help if you need it.
