New Moon 13 June 2018 – Lucky Stars

New Moon June 2018 AstrologyThe New Moon on Wednesday June 13, 2018 is located at 22° Gemini. The New Moon June 2018 astrology is a good news story. Its uncomplicated by any planetary aspects but heavily influenced by no less than eight fixed stars. This is the busiest part of the sky for major fixed stars and the new moon lands right in the middle of it. In fact, it bisects two of the most fortunate stars in this group that are separated by only 0°20′.

The June 2018 New Moon brings good fortune and lasting happiness. It provides protection for you and your loved ones. A New Moon is a good time to set new goals so this is an especially good new moon to start a new project. The stars in particular give the skills needed to do well in business.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the June 13 New Moon will last four weeks up to the July 12 Solar Eclipse. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from June 13 to the June 28 Full Moon.

New Moon June 2018 Astrology

The June 13 new moon at 22°44′ Gemini falls right in the middle of the busiest part of the sky for fixed stars. In fact, the new moon is conjunct 8 major fixed stars in 4 Constellations from 21° to 25° Gemini. There is one minor planetary aspect to the new moon. However, Sun quincunx Pluto is over 2° orb and Pluto is a minor planet. So I doubt its influence will be felt, especially considering the incredible amount of energy coming from all the stars listed below.

New Moon June 2018 Astrology

New Moon June 2018 lies exactly between Mintaka and El Nath, being 0°10′ from each. Mintaka has the strongest influence on the New Moon because the Moon is already passed over it. The full potential of Mintaka is unleashed by the new moon but the potential of El Nath has yet to be fully developed.

New Moon in Orion’s Belt

Fixed star Mintaka in the Belt of Orion gives good fortune and protection to yourself and loved ones. According to Robson, the Sun and Moon with Mintaka portends good fortune, lasting happiness and notoriety. It makes people discreet, cautious, somewhat changeable, active, sharp, and alert in business. It also gives a public position, many enemies more successful in business, blindness of at least one eye, new and influential friends, valuable gifts, and love of respectable women. [1]

In addition, Orion’s Belt gives strength, energy, industry, organizing abilities, a sharp mind and a good memory. [1] Noonan says it makes people “passionately devoted to hunting, but not noble hunting with falcon or bow”. [2] Constellation Orion gives a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, inconstancy, courage, arrogance, rebellion, violence, impiety, prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison. In mundane astrology this is the constellation of war, very harmful to cattle and productive of storms. [1] [2]

New Moon in the Bull’s North Horn

Fixed star El Nath gives fortune, eminence and neutrality for good or evil. According to Robson , a new moon conjunct El Nath will give business success, honor through science, religion or philosophy, but also quarrels with questionable associates, and detriment due to wife, partner or relative. [1] Constellation Taurus heralds the results of the beginnings of large political undertakings. Its associated with wild animals, especially those of danger to man. [2]

More Stellar influence

Fixed star Capella in the Charioteer is the brightest of the eight stars so will have a strong influence on the New Moon. After all, is it only 0°38′ behind the Sun and Moon. It is also the most fortunate of these stars and gives honor, wealth, eminence, renown, a public position of trust and eminent friends. It makes people careful, timorous, inquisitive, very fond of knowledge and particularly of novelties. [1] Ebertin said it gives a love of learning, studiousness and interest in research. It also makes people somewhat odd, giving a persistent, annoying and inquisitive curiosity. [4]

According to Robson, a new moon conjunct Capella will make people inquisitive, vacillating, changeable, too loquacious, sarcastic, quarrelsome, misunderstood and criticized. It gives martial honor, wealth and many journeys and voyages, but also quick and indiscreet speech, domestic disharmony, danger to sight, and liability to accidents. [1]

There are two more stars in Orion’s Belt that have a similar influence to Mintaka but they are less fortunate. Fixed star Al Hecka is the other Horn of the Bull associated violence, male violence and danger of accidents. However, this star is further away from the more favorable North Bulls Horn which will dominate. Fixed star Bellatrix is the female warrior star and less fortunate but further away than Mintaka, El Nath and Capella. Apparently it makes women loquacious and shrewish, and gives a high-pitched, hard and sharp voice. Last but not least, fixed star Phact is the Dove that brings good news, charity, kindness, hopefulness and good fortune.

Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946 and his Sun is conjunct all these stars under 1°50′ orb. Amplified by the new moon conjunct the Sun in his solar return chart, these fortunate stars mean he should have a good year ahead professionally.If the New Moon June 2018 astrology chart directly affects your Sign you can read about it in your free Weekly Horoscope and Monthly Horoscope.

  1. Thanks for this Jamie, I am hoping that as this is conjunct my natal Venus it just might bring me some very long overdue good news before the Partial Solar eclipse on July 13th, my birthday. Will let you know.

  2. in your opinion, would wed. the 13th be a good day to close escrow on a new home… I’ll be needing to transport personal belongings some 400 miles to new destination. You mention good fortune and safety with this new moon and that seems to be the right ticket. yes? Also – what would be the window of time on this blessed event? I appreciate your guidance. (virgo, 1) <3

    • Pardon me for barging in, but, to be brief, the answer to your question is yes. This June New Moon has a lot of energy–definitely a great time to make the change. I happen to agree in that the window of time extends into July: until the eclipse so it says above. Good travels to you and yours.

        • Already experiencing delays with current owners not vacating premises in time for final walk-through but then we arent in the new moon phase yet. Hoping we will close by Friday latest and I decided to hold off on the travel part until Sunday. good thing too. thanks Richard and Jamie.

  3. Hi!
    I have Psyche at 23 Gemini in my natal chart, and have a very important business meeting set up for that day?! Any thoughts?!
    Thanks a lot!!!

    • Hi Al. I would be more interested in transits to your natal Mercury for a business meeting, or how transiting Mercury and this new moon aspects your chart.

  4. Hello Jamie, hope you are well. If you have time will you give me your thoughts on this new moon conjunct my Venus in the natal 8th house please. Thank you.

  5. Hey Jamie, My moon is in Gemini at 22.09’10 (birthdate 5/26/60) hoping for good?

    • Hi Marianne. Your Moon is probably closest to the star El Nath which is good for success but can cause tension in close relationships. A new moon conjunct your Moon is positive and focuses your attention on home and family for the next 4 weeks.

  6. Wednesday is my 48th birthday will this new moon have a greater significance for me since it lands on my solar return?

    • Yes it sure will. It should give a boost to your vitality that may stay with you until your birthday next year.

  7. The panic-inciting video at the end of your feed: did you place this here?? or was it an ad that you approved? Did you have any control over its placement? IT seems rather incongruous with what you are offering and more or less wiped out the ‘lucky stars’ feeling I had reading your writeup

    • Not sure what you mean Olivia. Do you mean the email subscription. I did not think there were advertisements there.

  8. Hi Jamie, I’m a libra experiencing issues with a pisces boyfriend who has taken some space after a fight. Would the new moon be a good day to reach out and try to resolve issues?

      • I am a Decan 1 Libra and he is a Decan 1 Pisces. He has been unwilling to talk until he felt he had enough space and now it’s been about 10 days and I do not want to disrespect his space. But if it’s auspicious, then I will confidently do so.

  9. ‘The June 2018 New Moon brings good fortune and lasting happiness.”
    Have you seen the news? This is a configuration based on lies, chicanery and divisiveness. The Americain dream with Mars and Uranus in Gemini in the US chart and Trump Gemini, Pence Gemini, Guiliani Gemini etc
    The Trickster/ Scary Clown rules. And with Uranus In Taurus this divisiveness will solidify, just as it did in the 30s.

    • Thank you for this point. If it’s true that this is a good acspect for trump and that fascism in the US and what is spreading around the world is a “good thing” then astrology is truely without morality or any idea of public good. If astrology is about the personal and getting over for oneself despite what is right and good in the world then my interest in it must end.

      There is another way to read it as you have noted the Gemini split and the fact that actions have consequences therefor these moves that break laws and norms will bring down the trump cult at some point.

  10. Any thoughts on this New Moon being exactly opposite my natal Sun, conjunct progressed Asc? And would it have any significance if it was conjunct progressed Sun/Venus (in a friend’s chart)?

  11. Hi Jamie!

    I am always delighted to read your post full of details. I found out that this moon is making an opposition to my natal Neptune and natal vertex and antivertex, so wondering if this is an important new moon for me.

    • My vertex is at 22.13 but neptune is at 19.54 so probably the new moon is closer to the vertex and antivertex.
      Another question that came to my mind is whether this new moon can also bring news of the 12 july eclipse as sometimes you can feel it one month earlier…if so would the sextile to my IC and MC be activated? If Eris is just over my MC should I take into account the sextile of the new moon to Eris in transit conjunct my MC?


  12. Hi Jamie, thanks for this! I am April 5th, 1974 and this transit was very lucky for me as I finally found a great job, in June, after being off work for 4 months. And I have been blessed with many new friends as well! Only thing is, my boyfriend of 2 yrs wants to move away now and maybe this is a good time to let him go. Very stressed about that part, any insights you had are helpful. Ok? Thanks! CMB
