New Moon June 2015 – Sports, Sex and War

New Moon June 2015 AstrologyThe new moon on June 16, 2015 falls in Gemini decan 3. At 25 degrees Gemini, the new moon is very closely aligned with Mars. With this being the only major aspect, the astrology of the June 2015 new moon is fairly straight forward. The major themes will be initiative, aggression, action, sex, sports and war. Between the new moon and Mars lies the fixed star Al Hecka. Positioned on the tip of the Southern Horn of the Bull, the nature of this star totally compliments the already Martian nature of the new moon.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28 day cycle. With the Sun conjunct Moon, all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start and start writing down a to-do list on a blank sheet of paper.

However, the impulsive and enthusiastic nature of a new moon means that not all new projects will succeed. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of a new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the moon lasts from the June 16 new moon until the July 1 full moon.

Sun conjunct Mars at less than one degree orb, is by far the most important influence in the June 2015 new moon astrology chart shown below. This potent aspect brings an abundance of energy and initiative, which must be burnt up in a constructive manner otherwise there can be damaging consequences.

If this hot energy were to build up in your body, then it would be spontaneously released without control. Such a release of uncontrolled hot energy would be rapid and destructive, hurting yourself or others.

Although the manifestation of this aspect can be positive or negative depending on how it is used, I consider it to be generally negative because of the potential for damage.

Adding to the potential for damaging consequences from this new moon is the fixed star Al Hecka. Positioned at 24°59′ Gemini, this Mars-type star lies between the new moon and Mars. Just like Mars, it also has a very powerful influence on the new moon because of its tight orb of only 08′.

Al Hecka can cause mischief, accidents, and violence, especially from men. So tightly aligned with Mars, there is definitely danger of violence against women and rape with this new moon.

New Moon June 2015

With the combination of the Sun, Moon and Mars in particular, this star suggests suspicion, arguments and verbal abuse. Bad habits and sexual problems will be highlighted, and much of this will be related to the keeping of bad company.

At the mundane level, this new moon will aggravate current tensions in the world such as the Islamic State war and in the Ukraine. Robson says that with the Sun, the fixed star Al Hecka gives an “aptitude for military enterprise and stratagems but danger of deceit and ambushes.”

At the personal level, you will initially notice the buildup of energy as irritation, annoyance or impatience. At this stage or preferable beforehand, the best option is to consciously apply yourself to a positive form of activity.

There is great potential with this new moon to transform the hot energy into something very constructive and productive.  You can express your identity through physical actions.

Physical activity is preferred but the brain can also burn up a lot of energy. A high degree of assertiveness and initiative is ideal for starting new projects. An inflated ego should be contained if working with others at this time. This, together with a tendency toward a direct or abrupt attitude, means than working alone is preferred.

In your personal relationships, it is important to remain conscious of how others perceive you. They may feel threatened or dominated, and react with aggression or spite. If you feel an argument brewing or are provoked, it would be wiser to back down to maintain harmony.

  1. Hi Thank you. I have pluto conjunct uranus at the same degrees in a direct square 1st (virgo) and this is in opposition to mars chiron 7th conjunct 24-27 degrees also…This intense new moon will fall in my 11th house, while venus in leo transits the 12th…retrograde pluto is causing upheaval as its moves backward from passing over natal venus in 5th at 18 degrees.

    The last point is I think a yod – to retrograde saturn in scorpio 3rd, which is transiting over natal scorpio neptune at 26 degrees, with transiting uranus at 19 degrees and natal north node is 22 degrees Aries, in sextile to new moon conjunct sun, Al Hecka…My sun is conjunct vesta 22-27 degrees aquarius 6th…

    The last 1-2 years have been difficult with illness (neptune pisces opposite jupiter virgo 12th, conjunct ascendant)

    I am wondering if I will have an opportunity to tie up a situation unresolved fom last August 14-Dec 18 (After Aquarian supermoon opposite Leo sun). I had help from last year, (regarding health). This was unorthodox, unexpected and somewhat emotionally destabilising. At least I can say advice came from truth, but ultimately came with a price, some cruel realisation, sacrifice. Unfortunately if I had known the upheaval it would cause I might choose to remain unwell! It has left me perplexed, riddled (confronted) with challenges or work to do that seems unsurmountable, (impossible to undertake) moral dilemma (truth vs illusion) and uncertainty, ambiguity (fated relationships). Yet the dream of freedom, liberty is now irripressible after the promise or taste of it…

  2. Excellent! I found this to be in direct sync with what I am personally experiencing around this New Moon. Reading it helped me make better decisions about my sadhana for the next few days.

  3. Does this set the tone for the whole year for Gemini’s or just till the full moon?

      • I am surmising it would have deeper significance to Gemini’s as it occurred in their sun in sign period, and of course there is only one per year/each sign
