New Moon 14 June 2018 ~ Sleeping Beauty

The new moon June 13 falls at 22º Gemini decan 3. The new moon June 2018 astrology activates a myriad of stars in the milky way as this is one of the most stellar zones of the ecliptic. Around this degree, you find Anilam and Mintaka in Orion’s belt, magical Behenian star Capella in the mother goat and Phact in the Dove. The star that is ‘closest’ to the actual new moon is El Nath found on the tip of the bull’s horns.

One theme for this June new moon is nostalgia with Ceres making a harmonious aspect to it while Mars is conjunct the south node which looks to the karmic past. There are some very soothing aspects and a chance to let go of past hurts. The last two new moons have been pretty harsh, what with the bloody pens of Aries and Algol the beheading star of Taurus being activated. Now this Gemini decan 2 is a busy decan with many possibilities, you could get poked by the bull’s horn but the rest of the stars will probably protect you if you let them.

New Moon June 2018 Astrology

The imagination is very active here. Those touched by the new moon June 2018 will have a great sense of what is popular or what is about to become big. At the same time, the moon is not particularly strong by dignity so it has to cope with many different strategies. The new moon can bring out two-faced and untrustworthy behavior. It does not intentionally set out to be duplicitous, it just simply ebbs and flows with the public’s moods.

Gemini the sign flip-flops between positions and the Moon is very changeable emotionally anyway. The theme here in Gemini 3 then, will be that of dancing around different subjects and moods. This position though is very psychic as it is so well attuned to the collective consciousness and is quick to adapt to the changes in the atmosphere.

New Moon June Aspects

Moon sextile Ceres brings together two mother archetypes in a way that is incredibly fertile and nurturing, but there is a budding urgency and slight desperation about it. The mothering can be too cloying, sentimental and smothering at this June new moon 2018. The energy of this full moon supports philanthropists and can attract great wealth. It’s like the universe will support those who will do right with their fortune. Moon sextile Ceres is also an extremely sensuous aspect, with an appreciation for the aesthetic and general good taste. Those touched by this new moon could find themselves feeling indulgent and it will be hard to resist luxury. This new moon energy supports history and can be very nostalgic. Family and their ancestry are important as is keeping archives and preserving the past for posterity.

As already mentioned Mars is on the South Node and the fairytale aspect of Jupiter trine Neptune is still in effect. “Jupiter trine Neptune could symbolize courtly love, the kind that was celebrated in medieval times. Troubadours would sing slushy love songs to married ladies, knights would joust in honour of the Queen. However, these pining wannabe suitors would never, ever take it to the physical.”

Capella has a Mercurial influence and is one of the Behenian stars. These extra potent stars were used in medieval magic and for making talismans. Each has a precious stone or herb associated with it. In Capella’s case, it is Sapphire and thyme. Robson says of Capella. That ” It gives honor, wealth, eminence, renown, a public position of trust and eminent friends, and makes its natives careful, timorous, inquisitive, very fond of knowledge and particularly of novelties.”

New Moon June 2018 astrologyPhact in the dove, the bringer of good news, so yet another fortunate star. This one brings kindness and a gentle nature, which can smooth out the other more risqué sides to this decan. The dove is timid, but underneath has a powerful spirit. It has artistic talents and a great sense of rhythm and timing. Both these stars are considered very fortunate.

Mintaka is the third star in Orion’s belt. One of the most recognizable sights in the night sky. These three stars are said to mirror the positions of the pyramids of Giza. Mintaka is the first of the three to rise over the horizon in the northern hemisphere and portends good fortune too. Personally, the stars are quite hard to work with as seen in the Moon in Gemini decan 3 section, but in the collective, these stars seem to behave themselves and bring more eminence. Maybe much depends on the aggregate of the world’s soul at the current time.

El Nath is found in the northern Bull’s horn and “Of the nature of Mars and Mercury. It gives fortune, eminence and neutrality for good or evil.” It is far less problematic than its aggressive brother in the southern horn.“Astrologers said that El Nath portended eminence and fortune to all who could claim it as their natal star.” Manilus says “The Bull will dower the countryside with honest farmers and will come as a source of toil into their peaceful lives; it will bestow, not gifts of glory, but the fruits of the earth. It bows its neck amid the stars and of itself demands a yoke for its shoulders. When it carries the sun’s orb on its horns, it bids battle with the soil begin and rouses the fallow land to its former cultivation..” [1]

List Of Fixed Stars Around 22º Gemini

Gemini 21º 51’ ~ Capella the mother goat on in Auriga the Charioteer 0.8 *
Gemini 22º 10’ ~ Phact in Columba the Dove 2.8
Gemini 22º 24’ ~ Mintaka in the belt of Orion the Hunter 2.5
Gemini 22º 33’ ~ Beta Pictor in Equuleus Pictoris the Painters Easel 3.9
Gemini 22º 35’ ~ El Nath on the tip of the northern horn of Taurus the Bull 1.8
Gemini 23º 28’ ~ Alnilam the central star in the belt of Orion the Hunter 1.8

As you can see from the list you can take your pick from many stars in the new moon June 2018 astrology. But I list them like this so you can see the difference in magnitude. Capella is the brightest but is further from the ecliptic. El Nath is both bright and close to the actual new moon as you can see from this diagram.
The full moon is actually positioned between Mintaka and El Nath* (The list shows the year 2000 position.)

Mintaka 22º “ Active, sharp, alert in business, public position, many enemies more successful in business.”
El Nath 22º “Quarrels with questionable associates, business success, environment detrimental owing to wife, partner or relative.”

We must look at the other influences around this moon such as the aspects and the general mood of the chart to see which star will leap out as having more of an effect. The stars above seem to favour business success rather than relationships. Mars on the South Node dominates the chart and suggests a release of a karmic tie or new passion with an old flame since Mars is slowing down to go retrograde. With Ceres being in the picture the difficulties could be tied to an interfering mother-in-law rather than the relationship itself.

June 2018 New Moon Summary

Astrologers, healers, market traders and bodyworkers will work well with the new moon June 2018 astrology. There is a dark twin potential of course because the trickster archetype is alive and well here too. This new moon position could bring out swindlers, liars and thieves. However, wits are sharp which can help those touched by this moon to get out of any scrapes.

The biggest problem at this time is having too much choice. It’s like being at a buffet with a tiny plate and knowing you will offend all the cooks of the food you didn’t pick. Whatever choice you make will upset someone. At the new moon June 2018, you might constantly feel like you are being pulled in two directions. Dividing your life very rigidly, for the time being, could be the solution and wearing the right hat for the right job.

The star El Nath seems to reward very hard work with a very indulgent rest time as it is such an eminent star despite its spikey position. So if you have been rewarded with some luxury don’t feel guilty about it. You really do deserve it! This new moon June is mainly about recovering from multi-tasking in our very busy lives. Nostalgia can be very comforting also and can take us back to a time when we had fewer responsibilities and led a simpler life.

At this new moon June 2018, you may yearn to un-know some of the black-pilled information you have picked up in recent times. The black pill can leave us feeling very much like the 10 of swords card that rules this decan and you may want to reach out for some ‘medicine’ to take the edge off! Take time out to heal, rest those tired adrenals and allow yourself to recover from all that Gemini dashing around.

In the extended YouTube summary, I talk about my recent trip to Prague, European cities that are still European, Neo Conniving controlled opposition (Rubble Media), and the ban on Tommy Robinson reporting.

* Star positions are starting to get a little outdated now that we are in 2018. Fixed stars move approximately 1 degree every 72 years. So very roughly 1 minute a year.
**This card is not the brightest to look at so you might want to regard it as something that you want to weed out in order to plant your new moonseeds.

  1. Isn’t Trumps North Node, Sun (and Egyptian Sun) asteroid Aten on this same degree?
    And all those amazing fixed stars, just wow!
    I wonder if some spectacular event is going to happen for him with that moon.
    No matter what people say about Trump, that’s a lot of fiery light on his NN. I think destiny in motion.
