New Moon in Gemini July 5/6, 2024

The next new moon happens at 20°11 Gemini on 5 July 2024 at 10:57 pm UTC. Nakshatra is Punarvasu, and Navamsha is in Aries.

Pruning trees produces new, even stronger branches. We may think that it is a shame because the tree has just put on buds or grown well. However, pruning also improves the branches, allowing them to get more sunlight and ventilation, preventing disease and improving growth. Sometimes, the gardener comes and prunes a lot. We may be tempted to think: “So much was cut, will the branches really grow back?” But they certainly will!

Materially, it is a very good time to be brave and recycle or discard things that we thought maybe we might ‘use someday’. Mentally, too, if there are concepts and ideas we have outgrown but we are still attached to, let us use the energy of this new moon to let go of them. The space created will allow new energy to come in. Let us enjoy the new energy during the two weeks leading up to the Full Moon. Om Shanti.
