The Moon is drifting through the airy realm of Gemini today. Our collective emotional needs are temporarily swapped out for a more intellectual approach. This Friday, it’s all about communication and being mentally stimulated. Our mind is like an internet browser full of twenty tabs, jumping from site to site. 

Therefore, maintaining focus is crucial. As the moon squares impulsive Mars, we must be careful not to act on every thought that enters our brain. Further, the Moon has tension with Saturn, the planet of restrictions. While it is harder to access our heartfelt feelings, we certainly will be able to remain objective, serious, and detached.

Reclaiming your spending power will bring more confidence than a fleeting purchase ever could.


Emotions follow you today, Gemini. The moon transits your first house of self, pushing you to feel it all. Wearing your heart on your sleeve is on the Universe’s agenda. However, this is easier said than done. The Moon, visiting in your sign, also squares reckless Mars and serious Saturn. While your body and soul crave emotional release, a wall within yourself rises. If you feel yourself shutting down or closing others out, challenge yourself. Push yourself to avoid assumptions or cynicism. Speak your mind, even if vulnerability feels difficult to reach.


As active as the world around you is today, you feel like conserving your energy. Today’s Gemini moon is visiting your spiritual realm of life.

Today’s Gemini moon highlights your career life. As tempting as it’ll be to think all of the thoughts and do all of the things, it’s best to focus. Channel your mental energy wisely.
