New Moon June 2023 Astrology

The New Moon in Gemini on June 18, 2023, is square Neptune. So the meaning of the New Moon June 2023 astrology is avoiding confusion and deception.

The June 2023 New Moon aligns with asteroid Juno, making partnerships like marriage more significant. It also aligns with a star associated with male violence. Fortunately, there are beneficial aspects that give the communication skills and good judgment to protect yourself and your loved ones from the risk of domestic violence.

New Moon June 2023 Astrology

The New Moon on Sunday, June 18, 2023, is at 26°43′ Gemini. There is quite a bit to unpack in the New Moon horoscope below. Apart from the Sun conjunct Moon, the New Moon square Neptune is the most significant influence. It is a challenging aspect causing confusion and deception.

Fortunately, two harmonious sextile aspects also help overcome these problems. Juno, one of the four main asteroids in astrology, aligns with the New Moon and a dangerous fixed star.

New Moon in Gemini 2023

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives a refreshing burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So the New Moon in Gemini 2023 is excellent for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs while searching for new and inventive ways to progress.

Asteroid Goddess

Asteroid Juno makes marriage and unions a significant theme of the New Moon in June 2023. Juno was originally a Moon goddess. The ancient Romans called her Juno Covella, goddess of the New Moon. The word Covella comes from the Latin word for hollow (describing the new moon’s thin crescent).

The ancient Roman calendar was lunar, and each month began with a New Moon. Ceremonies in Juno’s honor were held on the first day of every month. [1]

From the 28-day New Moon cycle comes Juno’s association with the female reproductive cycle. Juno is a lunar goddess who oversees women of childbearing age from puberty to childbirth and marriage. Juno also rules soul mates, true love and commitment.

At a deeper level, Demetra George suggests asteroid Juno symbolizes the mystical union, or state of spiritual consciousness you can reach when you transcend your ego. Overcoming separateness through union and becoming one with the universe.

“Juno symbolizes the yearning for full mystic union that is emotionally, sexually, and psychologically fulfilling…In the horoscope, Juno represents the emotional and psychological needs that motivate us to seek marital union”. [2]

Neptune Problems

New Moon square Neptune can weaken your vitality, making it hard to get motivated or enthusiastic about anything, especially hard work. Confusion and disappointment are possible, and you may feel insecure, guilty, or apologetic. Dishonesty and deception are likely in relationships, especially with a Juno New Moon. Secrets will be harder to keep and more challenging to uncover.

So honesty and clarity are essential. It would be best if you were above board in all dealings. If you lack confidence, avoiding conflict and other high-stress competitive things like business dealings may be best. Seeing only the best in people increases the chance of disillusionment. Over-idealization and gullibility can lead to loss, scandal, or slander.

You may also be more susceptible to psychological and health issues. Paranoia and hypochondria are possible, but so are misdiagnosis and increased susceptibility to infection, poisoning and overdose.

However, enhanced creativity and imagination make the June 2023 New Moon good for art, music, dance, and drama. Entertainment, charity work, and fighting for social causes are excellent ways to use this ethereal energy safely. Religion and other spirituality or ceremony will help if you lose faith.

Sextile Solutions

Mercury sextile Venus helps you relax and feel more comfortable talking with loved ones and showing affection. It reduces stress and makes relationships more harmonious. Extra charm and social skills can also help ease the tension when socializing.

This openness will help counter the deceptive and confusing influence of Neptune. It will help you clear up misunderstandings, uncover lies and secrets, resolve disagreements and find win-win solutions.

Jupiter sextile Saturn brings sustainable growth through cautious expansion. An optimistic yet realistic outlook, good timing and sound judgment help you choose the right option at the right time. Patience, perseverance, and a strong work ethic help you reach a significant long-term goal.

Personal growth, wealth, wisdom and happiness may also come through new relationships, travel or education. This may not be an exciting time, but lasting achievements will bring satisfaction and contentment.

The Constellations

The June 2023 New Moon is in the Sign of Gemini. But as the image below shows, it is in the Constellations of Taurus. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The ecliptic line in the image below matches the degrees in the horoscope above. Like the original astrologers, I use the Constellations and fixed stars for interpretation, not the Signs.

New Moon June 2023 Meaning

New Moon June 2023 [Stellarium]

Fixed star Al Hecka, labeled Tianguan above, is the most significant stellar influence on the New Moon astrology. Its orb of 1°37′ is closer than Polaris (2°09′) and Betelgeuse (2°21′). Plus, the New Moon has already passed by Al Hecka, which means its full potential is unleashed.

  • 25♊06 – Zeta Tauri, Tianguan (Al Hecka)
  • 26♊43 – New Moon June 2023
  • 27♊31 – Asteroid Juno
  • 28♊52 – Alpha Ursae Minoris, Polaris
  • 29♊04 – Alphga Orionis Betelgeuse

Fixed star Al Hecka on the tip of the Bulls Horn is of the nature of Mars. It gives violence, male violence and danger of accidents. [3] Al Hecka gives a combative nature with the tongue, and sometimes manually too, which can lead to misfortune. [4]

With Sun: Suspicious, reserved, studious, unfavorable for health and especially for the lungs, aptitude for military enterprise and stratagems but danger of deceit and ambushes. [3]

With Moon: Quarrels, evil habits and company, depravity. [3]

Zeta Tauri was officially named Tianguan in 2017, from the Chinese Tiānguān (天關), which means “Celestial Gate.” The traditional name used in all astrology texts is Al Hecka, from the Arabic Al Hak’ah, which means “The White Spot” (on the horn tip).

New Moon June 2023 Meaning

The strongest astrological influence on the June 2023 New Moon in Gemini comes from square to Neptune, meaning confusion and deception. This especially applies to partnerships like marriage because the New Moon is conjunct asteroid Juno.

Fixed star Al Hecka brings the danger of violence, especially from men. Combing this with Neptune and Juno brings the risk of domestic violence. So if you are in an abusive relationship, it is essential to use the communication skills from Mercury sextile Venus and the common sense of good judgment from Jupiter sextile Saturn to take the steps necessary to ensure your safety.

The influence of the June New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the July 17 New Moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from June 18 to the July 3 Full Moon.

  1. Oh boy… My birthday is the 19th…I’m a 27° Gemini Sun. This is very nerve-wracking in deed!

    • Hi Adrienne. These stars are close to each other so it is important to determine which one is closest to your Sun.

    • Inopportune Birthday greetings Adrienne, hope the day flows well for you.

      • Thank you, GB! I’m going to do my best to flow with it (Neptune is Square my Sun so I don’t have much of a choice haha)

  2. Why astrology charts aren’t changed ? It makes no sense to me to keep on using old instruments that have not been updated due to the precession of the equinoxes. This needs to be fixed. Sorry but it makes me really angry.

    • Hi Pedro. Vedic, or sidereal charts account for precession but I still use the Western, or tropical zodiac because that is what everyone is familiar with.

  3. Natal Sun 20’49” 10th house- already feeling this my mind is challenging my higher self and am struggling to keep my mouth shut! This too shall pass <3

  7. Al Hecka, oh my! My mother’s mercury there. And worse yet, a sister’s mars Saturn Uranus conjunct there. You nailed my big ouch in life. Very belittling. Puzzling to me, like why. The tongue. Sister the worst. Idolized men, sidled up to them, tried to control other women’s relationships with men by talking down the women to the men. A man I was dating wanted to go to a wedding with me. I told him he could come only if he didn’t but into my sister trash talk me. Sure enough she tried and we walked away. Only saw her raise her hand to someone once, and the woman caught her arm in the air and don’t you ever effing do that again! Do I guess, thanks for the info on Al Hecka. Not that it excuses the behavior, just something they needed to resolve. Like she once told me, people like me, but not for long. Aging has helped it some

  10. Ah, rather sad as this is Father’s Day in the UK. My personal astrology is rather good for this new moon. But a big argument erupted on our street. The man was saying things like- I fought in Afghanistan, but I’ll never be man enough for you. He was VERY angry and the lady was crying… thanks as always for your insights Jamie

  11. My knowledge of astrology is elementary but how do these aspects affect the lost Titanic tourist sub?

    • Hi Marietje.

      Neptune rules the oceans. The New Moon is square Neptune which brings tests and challenges. Neptune is in Constellation Pegasus which “portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather.”

  12. Solar Flare, X1.1, 17:09 UTC

    heliocentric view, compare New Moon and X Flare.

    X flare is like the Sun stressing on ‘How to Use (Capricorn) our Power(Pluto)’ semi-square and quincunx the Gates of Man and God.

    A Thorstein Veblen horoscope at the New Moon a good example of this with Jupiter natal and transit the Nadir, an indicator of how ‘low can one go’, analogous to submersibles, and Veblens economist theories of conspicuous luxury consumption, sell it by raising the price. Further to the Astrologyking artwork and authors personal astrology, case in point, several Trillion got your attention

    • Thanks for the chart. Seems like Ceres giveth and Ceres taketh away if I’m correctly reading the 22 degrees.

      • Ceres 22 Libra, heliocentric, square 22 Capricorn Mass Formation circa Jan 2020..

        The Sun challenges us to seek a balance in our grain, cereal or pulse consumption, including fermented variations. Mercury sextile Mars at the Summer solstice goes into this a bit more, for instance im enjoying a seltzer tonight, an alternative to the usual fare.

  13. “Jupiter and the Nadir, an indicator of how ‘low can one go’, analogous to submersibles.”

    News of a Computer Game controller used to steer the Titanic submarine. Which sounds beyond belief, something going this deep, would it not be MilSpec?

    the astrology lineage, Jupiter cojunct Nadir, Paul Saunders, dob January 12, 1918
    “Thunder Below” highly esteemed pilot of the most productive sub WW2.

    • MilSpec? Isn’t the sub private enterprise, like no regs? Airlines have regs, private planes have regs? not sure about private subs.

      • From an article from in The Guardian yesterday entitled, “Titanic submersible: documents reveal multiple concerns raised over safety of vessel”~
        OceanGate was also concerned that the classing process could slow down development and act as a drag on innovation.”Bringing an outside entity up to speed on every innovation before it is put into real-world testing is anathema to rapid innovation.” Despite years of military and engineering experience, CEO Rush comes across as greedy and vain.

        • Concern was implosion under too much pressure for the structure, not built to go that far down. I keep getting the Jupiter Saturn thing is going in people, going too far. I hear it’s resounding echo in much as of late.
