Gemini New Moon 2016 Astrology
On JUNE 4, 2016 the Gemini New Moon occurs at 10:59 PM ET. It’s degree is 14° Gemini 53”.
The planet Venus, symbolizes love and abundance; she is in direct alignment with this New Moon. A traditional interpretation of Venus is close to the Sun is “combust”— which means that the intensity of the Sun can fry Venus’ ability to attract the material.
Yet combust planets dissolve the surface orientation of being; in other words, a combust Venus is not a “material girl”. The primary concern is to seek what is of true value on the spiritual plane.
This Venus in Gemini is in mutual reception with Mercury (the communication symbol) in Taurus. We call it “mutual reception” because Gemini is the sign linked to Mercury and Taurus is a sign aligned with Venus. So each planet is in the other’s sign. This creates a dialogue even though there is no geometric link between the planets.
Mercury is in a Grand Trine with Pluto (under the surface revelations) and Jupiter (symbolizing wisdom and opportunity). So even though this is a challenged New Moon — the configuration shows strife, conflict and effort— the way through is with deep communication.
Courage is required and you may need to confront someone or a push out of your comfort zone. The rewards, although unexpected, are worth it.

The Sabian Symbol for the degree of this New Moon is “Two Dutch children talking”.
The symbol supports the communication theme of this New Moon. There is at least one conversation to be had with someone with whom you share common ground.
This is a new beginning, so the discussion involves something untried. It may involve a project already in motion, like siblings who need to come to term with aging parents.
If something involves a motor vehicle, it may be best to shelve this until the end of the month. Regardless of the fresh start, the quality of the relationship is emphasized, whether its business, friendship or a marriage.
Be especially aware of the words used, because there is more than one channel. What you hear between what is said has more weight than the actual statements.
The two Dutch children, also symbolize the unconscious, because the Netherlands is a country that is party under sea-level.
The ritual of an abundance check can help to channel that desire to “do something” at the New Moon- For abundance check information…
