We’ve just experienced the final New Moon of 2023 — a Sagittarius New Moon which struck on an ascension portal date 12/12. Thanks to our collective efforts, faith, optimism, intention, and bold actions, humanity will improve for the better these next six months, as we’re living through one of the largest consciousness shifts in history. The global suffering and grief we’re experiencing will start to decrease in intensity as we rise against societal injustices and remember that we are all one. Gemini, this new moon hits different for you because your planetary ruler Mercury has just begun its retrograde through Capricorn. You’re being asked to become aware of past patterns of behavior that do you more harm than good, and to be brave enough to let those habits go. Be kind to yourself during this process of release and rebirth.
