What is a New Moon?
A new moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact same position in the Zodiac (called a conjunction). New moons are related to beginnings, have high energy, and are enthusiastic.
What is a Full Moon?
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact opposite positions in the Zodiac (called an opposition). Full moons are related to endings, culminations, and are emotional energy.
Full Moon in Sagittarius: June 14th 2022 (7:51AM ET/3:51AM PT)
Sagittarius is naturally ruled by Jupiter, so this is the happy sign. Full moons are usually full of emotion, but Sagittarius full moons tend to be lighter. We want to focus on the good and not be so bogged down by the challenges we're dealing with. Bo to them!
Sagittarius rules our beliefs, so one area where we may be more passionate is what we believe in. We can defend this strongly, and can fight back against opposition. This can be good, until it's going too far, and we may need to remind ourselves to be more respectful.
Sagittarius is one of the rulers of travel, governing far, long-distance travel and flight, so we can see developments regarding travel, especially via planes. Sagittarius also rules higher learning, so there can be developments involving colleges/universities as well.
Sagittarius is the sign of the runner, so when we're upset or stressed around this full moon, we may want to run away from the situation instead of dealing with it. We have to force ourselves to stay put and work it out.
The full moon is sextile (beneficial aspect, two signs away) transit (moving) Saturn in Aquarius and square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) transit Neptune in Pisces, and the sextile to Saturn can help with discipline and making progress with our goals, while the square to Neptune can make judgment a little cloudy. We may be stuck in what's real and practical and lack imagination, and need to work on having a grip on creativity.
This full moon occurs at 23 degrees 25 minutes Sagittarius. The aspects to this full moon are:
Conjunction: 21 degrees 25 minutes - 25 degrees 25 minutes Sagittarius
Sextile: 21 degrees 25 minutes - 25 degrees 25 minutes Libra or Aquarius
Square: 21 degrees 25 minutes - 25 degrees 25 minutes Virgo or Pisces
Trine: 21 degrees 25 minutes - 25 degrees 25 minutes Aries or Leo
Opposition: 21 degrees 25 minutes - 25 degrees 25 minutes Gemini
New Moon in Cancer: June 28th 2022 (10:53PM ET/7:53PM PT)
Cancer is the sign that rules emotions, so what we feel can motivate us with this new moon. We can use our emotions as inspiration, and what we choose to take action with may be whatever we're most connected to emotionally. We're generally more positive emotionally since new moons tend to be more positive energy.
With Cancer, we likely want to stay within our comfort zone though, and not venture far out of it at all. We need a degree of comfort and familiarity, otherwise we may shy away from it. This can also be a good time to get support we need, and to be more supportive of others.
Cancer is the very bottom of the Zodiac, so there may be something that we're starting from the ground up with, or we may work on a stronger foundation for ourselves and for life.
The new moon is square transit Jupiter in Aries, and we may feel really good, but perhaps a little too good. We can expand, but have difficulty controlling it so it doesn't go too far, or we struggle with getting expansion going at all. We need to stay motivated and not give in to laziness, while also being open to options.
The new moon is also conjunct (aligned with) Black Moon Lilith in Cancer, and this can bring energy for helping us to stand up for what we believe is right, but do so in a gentler, softer way instead of anything loud. We may be most energized to focus on issues of the home and family, and can defend those we see as our family.

Conjunction: 5 degrees 23 minutes - 9 degrees 23 minutes Cancer
Sextile: 5 degrees 23 minutes - 9 degrees 23 minutes Taurus or Virgo
Square: 5 degrees 23 minutes - 9 degrees 23 minutes Aries or Libra
