This year, the New Moon in Gemini (Sun conjunct Moon in Gemini) occurs on the June 13th. The New Moon is the time when the Sun and the Moon are aligned, with the Sun and the Earth on opposite sides of the Moon.
In astrology, new moons mark beginnings and the New Moon is considered the perfect time for any new project or idea. When the Sun conjuncts the Moon in Gemini, the main areas of interest are communication and education. We need to study, we have a lot of ideas, but it may be difficult to calm an overactive mind. So, this is the main task, for June13th, 2018.
Zen Story for the New Moon in Gemini
The wind was flapping a temple flag, and two monks started an argument. One said the flag moved, the other said the wind moved; they argued back and forth but could not reach a conclusion.
The Sixth Patriarch Hui-Neng said, „It is not the wind that moves, it is not the flag that moves; it is your minds that move“.
