A new moon occurs on June 4th at 11PM ET in air sign Gemini. This Gemini new moon wants us to be a little more positive as we're still in the Mars retrograde when this new moon occurs. This new moon wants to help us with our communication too, and with Mars in intense Scorpio in June, we could use it! Try to focus on what you had difficulty communicating with in May with the Mercury retrograde, and use the lighter energy of the new moon.
This new moon is active, conjunct (aligned with) Venus in Gemini, square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) Neptune in Pisces, and square Jupiter in Virgo. The conjunction to Venus can bring some pleasant energy, and we can get along a little bit better, enjoy one another's company a little but more, and work a little bit harder at compromising and being fair. Be pleasant, be charming, be sweet and affectionate . . .
The squares to Jupiter and Neptune can jazz up the mutable grand cross we have going on at this time (those two planets are opposite one another, and both are square Saturn in Sagittarius, who is opposite the Sun and Venus in Gemini). The grand cross (or grand square) can be somewhat stabilizing for the scattered, unfocused energy that is mutable energy, and while much of the focus has been on Saturn in Sagittarius to the point of ignoring poor little Gemini energy, we may find that we focus more on the Gemini energy with this new moon and start doing some of the things we haven't been doing and have needed to do: Ask questions. Be curious. Focus on the details, the facts and figures. See if it makes basic sense.
This new moon occurs at 14 degrees 53 minutes of Gemini, so the aspects to this new moon are as follows:
Conjunction: 12 degrees 53 minutes - 16 degrees 53 minutes Gemini
Sextile: 12 degrees 53 minutes - 16 degrees 53 minutes Aries or Leo
Square: 12 degrees 53 minutes - 16 degrees 53 minutes Virgo or Pisces
Trine: 12 degrees 53 minutes - 16 degrees 53 minutes Libra or Aquarius
Opposition: 12 degrees 53 minutes - 16 degrees 53 minutes Sagittarius
A full moon occurs on June 20th at 7:02AM ET in Sagittarius. This full moon is full of some hot energy too because it occurs at 29 degrees, which is called the anaretic degree. 29 degrees is the very last degree of a sign, and is a point of crisis energy. This full moon is also the second consecutive full moon in Sagittarius, and is in the sign that the Mars retrograde first began in back in April. So we may see a lot coming full circle with this full moon, stuff from the Mars retrograde and from the full moon last month that doesn't get resolved or doesn't come to a head until now. Because of the anaretic degree, we might be frantically trying to get things tied off, closed up, feeling in a rush to do it before it's too late. We'll all need to relax and not be so wrapped up in the energy and emotion of this full moon. Avoid impulsive, and try to think!
Sagittarius is one of the communication signs and one of the travel signs; it also rules higher education, the law, expansion, exploration, adventure, and our beliefs, so any or all of these things can be impacted in general by this full moon.
Thankfully, the full moon makes no major aspects to any planets, so at least there isn't any extra stuff to deal with!
This full moon occurs at 29 degrees 32 minutes Sagittarius, so the aspects by this full moon are as follows:
Conjunction: 27 degrees 32 minutes - 29 degrees 59 minutes Sagittarius
Sextile: 27 degrees 32 minutes - 29 degrees 59 minutes Libra or Aquarius
Square: 27 degrees 32 minutes - 29 degrees 59 minutes Virgo or Pisces
Trine: 27 degrees 32 minutes - 29 degrees 59 minutes Aries or Leo
Opposition: 27 degrees 32 minutes - 29 degrees 59 minutes Gemini
Note: Since this full moon occurs at 29 degrees, you may also feel aspects to it out of sign if you have any planets or points at 0 degrees of Capricorn (conjunct), Scorpio or Pisces (sextile), Aries or Libra (square), Taurus or Virgo (trine), or Cancer (opposition).
