The month of June's full moon occurs on the 9th at 9:10AM ET, and this full moon is in Sagittarius. Usually, Sagittarius full moons aren't as serious and emotional as normal full moons. This is because Sagittarius rules optimism, expansion, new experiences, and wants to focus on the good in life, so with a Sagittarius full moon, we're not as down and out emotionally. Now that we're nice and far away from the Venus and Mercury retrograde of March - May, that's probably why! We're all whistling along with a happier tune now, and want to focus on the positives, even in more serious and emotional situations.
This can be a good full moon for finishing a trip, coming home if you're abroad, completing a course of study, or becoming more invested in a subject of interest. We can finalize plans for expansion or exploration, and there can be an undercurrent of positive energy.
Sagittarius does rule our beliefs, so one thing we have to be careful of is being defensive of our beliefs. It can be a good time to become more dedicated to our beliefs or to walk away from beliefs we no longer feel connected to, but we need to avoid getting defensive or preachy. That high horse you're on might just be a pile of *bleep*.

June's new moon occurs on the 23rd at 10:31PM ET in water sign Cancer. Cancer is the sign of home and family, so this is a good new moon for us to come together, to connect as one big family, and to support each other. We can be more nurturing and encouraging, and care about our families, communities, and countries. We can work on strengthening things at home, and having a solid home base.
Cancer rules comfort and familiarity, so we can stick to the things we know best, and take advantage of opportunities to do things we're comfortable with and are familiar to us. This may not be a new moon where we're pushing the envelope too much. The tried-and-true may work better.
This is also the sign of emotion, so we can be more positive with our feelings, continuing the energy from the full moon. We can focus on the positives and want to feel good about life.
This new moon conjuncts (aligns with) transit (moving) Mercury in Cancer, so communication can be strong, we can focus on new ideas and new plans, and we can open up about what we're feeling. The mind and our emotions can work together with this new moon. How will we use that in positive ways?
