New Moon in Gemini Relationship Tarot Spread


The New Moon in Gemini is usually a light-hearted affair, as Gemini likes to party, meet new people, and have fun. However, tomorrow’s New Moon in Gemini coincides with a rather harsh Venus in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn, dredging up painful emotions that we have been holding down within the bowels of our subconscious selves.

We’ve all been heartbroken by people we love. It’s easy to blame our partners when things go wrong, but Gemini reminds us that everyone we bring into our lives are mirror reflections of ourselves. It takes two people to co-create a beautiful relationship. And it takes two people to make things go awry.

Venus brings people together in love and pushes her feel good vibes out into the world. Pluto puts you face to face with your deepest ego wounds and says “deal with it.” When these two planets bring out the worst out in one another, their combined energy compels us to examine the shadow side of attraction and love.

This New Moon in Gemini is all about setting intentions to better understand the underlying dynamics of your closest relationships. Think of a relationship – past or present. Then, grab your Tarot cards and dive deep into its undercurrents with this New Moon in Gemini relationship spread.

Not All Tarot Cards are Equally Important


Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

Not all cards are equally important. It’s ok to focus more on certain cards if that is what your intuition tells you to do.

When I first started doing Tarot readings for others, I felt a lot of internal pressure to pay equal attention to all of the cards in the spread. In my mind, if I had a lot to say about one card, then I should have just as much to say about the other cards as well.

While I like the idea of being systematic and balanced in everything I do, this approach often left me feeling stuck. I struggled to come up with more things to say about cards that, for whatever reason, did not resonate with me as much.

As I grew in my reading practice, I began to realize that some cards just have more to say than others, and that’s okay.  It doesn’t affect the accuracy of the reading.

For example, I just pulled this Horoscope Spread to check-in with myself. Each card represents the energy I currently bring to twelves areas of my life, as represented by the twelve astrological houses.

The KING OF CUPS , TEN OF WANDS, and THE SUN immediately called out to me because they reference some heavy feelings that I am processing, namely by doing whatever I can to push positive energy out into the world. This has been at the forefront of my mind over the past few weeks. So, I spent some extra time with them.

The TWO OF PENTACLES and FIVE OF PENTACLES took on less importance. These cards don’t have much to say to me, probably because I am consciously not making an effort to meet new people that I could potentially partner-up with.

How do you know which cards are the most important ones to pay attention to? This is where your intuition comes in. There will be times when you read on a single area of your life and certain cards stand out to you more than others. Don’t question why that is, simply run with it and read as you feel. If you have to “force” information out of a card, that’s a sign that its time to move on.

Weekend Tarot Reading for May 19-21, 2017


Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries; Venus in Aries opposite Jupiter in Libra; Sun enters Gemini (Saturday)


Venus and Jupiter currently oppose one another within the Aries/Libra axis, bringing conflict between ourselves and our partners to the surface. Maybe you’re looking at your closest partnership only to realize that your needs aren’t getting met within it. If you can’t distinguish between your identity and that of your partner, get some clarity.

Opportunity – THE EMPEROR

Who are you, and what you stand for? If your relationship leaves you feeling out of control, remember what it means to love yourself first. Too many people fall into the trap of believing its noble to put their partners before themselves, wearing selflessness as a badge of honor. But selflessness easily turns into resentment. You can’t support others unless your own needs are met. And the only person responsible for making sure your needs get met is you.

Warning – SIX OF COINS

Proceed with caution if you have a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury) anywhere between 21 degrees Aries and 1 degree Taurus. Uranus is messing with you big time right now, making you feel like breaking up is the only way to make things right again. Sometimes that’s the right way to go, but other times it’s not. Either way, Uranus doesn’t care. He just wants you to take extreme measures, and he wants you to do it now. Cool your heels to avoid doing anything you’re only going to regret in the future.

The litmus test is whether you are getting just as much out of your relationship as you are putting in. The SIX OF COINS reminds us that the best relationships are those of equal energy exchange. It doesn’t feel good to always be the giver or taker. Find a way to restore the balance, or get out.

Advice – TEN OF CUPS

Focus on people who love you, not on people who are hanging around only because you have something to offer. Love is not about filling deficits, but enhancing what is already good thing.
