A new month is upon us, with an inspiring crescent moon just around the corner, filling the spring air with a feeling of new beginnings.

Gemini season is well underway, with this new moon culminating at the midpoint of the Sun's transit through this fickle air sign's active realm.

Gemini energy is fun and quick-thinking, making this new moon a great time to socialize and connect intellectually with people.

But there's more to this new moon than meets the eye, as it forms some powerful aspects to Venus, the planet of love, and practical Saturn. These cosmic connections may bring additional challenges to your New Moon journey, but they will subsequently lead to greater opportunities to feel completely in tune with your heart.

DO: Embrace your curious side

During this lunar phase, there will be a new new moon stellium in Gemini, with so many planets appearing simultaneously in this energetic air sign, putting everyone in a more curious and active state of mind. Embrace this energy by connecting with your curious side and asking questions.

Be curious about your surroundings as it can help you more fully embrace what is happening in the present moment. Whether that means digging into how something works or getting someone’s opinion, don’t be afraid to explore or go down the rabbit hole of information.

Don’t: Try to do everything alone

New Moons are typically a more introspective time in the lunar cycle, but in the season of cosmic twins, two are always better than one. So, harness the power of multiple perspectives during this lunar phase. It can be especially helpful to have other people's input on your plans now, as it can make your plans stronger than if you were keeping your ideas to yourself.

Asking for help or working with others in some way is also advantageous, as the new moon will be in auspicious angle to relationship-oriented Venus, which will bring a greater sense of harmony and balance to any new social connections or conversations.

DO: Take chances in love and relationships

If you have relationship-related goals or are hoping to manifest a fun summer romance, start taking action under this new moon—for the Sun and Moon will be aligning almost perfectly with amorous Venus. This triple conjunction opens the door to a whole new cycle in everyone's love life, and coupled with the rejuvenating energy of the New Moon, it's the perfect time to make a new connection with someone or turn the page with your current partner. .

Don’t: Expect immediate results

While this is a prime time for setting intentions, you shouldn't expect your new moon wishes to come true overnight, as this new moon is squaring tough love planet Saturn. This may throw some challenges into your path to success, forcing you to step up and solve some problems to keep the motivation flowing. Your patience may be tested, but if you persevere and stick to your goals, what you start now is likely to be successful in the long run. You may not see immediate results, but you can expect lasting results.

Do: Focus on the present moment

Gemini's busy and multi-tasking energy is always focused on the small details going on around them, so this new moon is a great time to do the same. Instead of getting lost in the future or in your own head, focus your energy outside and focus more on what's right in front of you.

Connecting more intentionally with your surroundings will allow you to discover things you wouldn't have otherwise - you might even stumble upon some serendipitous arrangements right under your nose. There are more resources around you than you think, so make the most of them.

Don’t: Hesitant about commitment

As a fickle sign, Geminis are known for being a bit fickle and often changing their views on things. But with Saturn's heavy influence on this new moon, it's important to be fully committed to your intentions if you want them to come true.

Be willing to take on any new responsibilities that come with the goals you pursue, and don't give up right away if you get stuck. Saturn rewards hard work, maturity, and resilience, so if you put your heart and soul into the new moon's manifestations, you'll have more support in achieving them.
