June 8th 2013 New Moon in Gemini
A new moon occurs at 11:56AM ET at 18 degrees 0 minutes of Gemini. In Gemini, we want to spend time sharing ideas and knowledge, putting our thoughts and plans out there, and stimulating our minds. We crave social time because we need the mental stimulation other people give us. We try to keep busy, but may seem scattered and unfocused from having too much to do. We want to spend time in our neighborhoods, with our youth, and focus on learning and technology. There could be good news for young people, communities, or technology. Gemini is a sign of duality, represented by the Twins, so two different things could grab out attention, and we feel pulled in two different directions. In general, we're more light-hearted and less serious, curious and honest. If you're a Gemini Sun, Moon, or mid-Gemini rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
June 23rd 2013 Full Moon in Capricorn
A full moon occurs at 7:32AM ET at 2 degrees 9 minutes of Capricorn. In Capricorn, we want to reach the goals we've set out to accomplish. We've worked long and hard, and we believe that we deserve our reward. What we think we deserve and what we actually deserve may be two different things though, and that can be hard to see. We may be punished, but we don't understand that we haven't been as responsible as we thought we were. Responsibility, maturity, and discipline are vital with this full moon. Those who don't display those traits suffer. We could see something important come up for our government since Capricorn rules governments, and with Mercury retrograde in Cancer at the same time, it could be a domestic issue that comes up, and the government has to eliminate something or find an explanation. If you're a Capricorn Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
