Global Hot Spot: The Gemini New Moon on Sunday June 18, 2023

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

Sir Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942 in Liverpool, England with the Sun in mutable-air sign Gemini, Mercury retrograde in Gemini and Venus in Taurus (in their home signs and rising before his Sun), and the Moon in fixed-fire Leo close to Mars, Pluto and Chiron. This extraordinary songwriter and multi-talented musician took the world by storm in the 1960s with his co-writing genius Solar Libra companion John Lennon and backed up fantastically by Pisces Sun George Harrison and Cancer Sun Ringo Starr. The legacy and legends associated with the Fab Four continue as Paul experiences birthday 81 at this Gemini New Moon with transiting Neptune in Pisces in exact polarity to his Neptune in Virgo and with a Uranus Return in early Gemini due when he nears age 84 in a few years. For Americans, note that his Knowledge-Wisdom brilliance is revealed by the asteroid Pallas Athena at 27 degrees of Aquarius not only precisely trine his natal Sun at 27 degrees of Gemini, but his Pallas Athena is exactly conjunct the trio of Moon-Pallas Athena-Quaoar all at 27 degrees of Aquarius in the USA birth chart for The Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Dateline June 17, 2023: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for the very potent Gemini New Moon on Saturday night June 17 and the into Sunday June 18. Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The main reasons this New Moon — energizing 27 degrees of Gemini — are extra significant is due to the Sun closing in on its annual union with Peace-and-Harmony advocate Juno* in Gemini (becoming precise early on June 20) along with the Moon conjunct Juno happening less than 2 hours after the New Moon.

Plus, Saturn at 7+ degrees of Pisces is stationary and shifting into reverse in a square aspect to the Nuclear Axis – an area of the zodiac between approximately 7 & 11 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius that I discovered back in 1982 and which is related strongly with atomic and nuclear energy, technology, warfare, testing and treaties.

*Important Regarding Juno: Note that the asteroid Juno has many superlative themes and qualities associated with beauty, design and style, the enhancement of love bonds, the strengthening of peace movements around the world, and the empowerment of primary partnerships, but when functioning negatively can signify terrorism, atmospheric storms, and rage by the disempowered. Both the Sun and the Moon are united with Juno at this New Moon and the Sun’s conjunction with Juno in Gemini, a rare event, has been developing for several days before the New Moon and will continue into the time-period of the Solstice on Wednesday June 21 as the Sun shifts from mutable-air Gemini to cardinal-water Cancer while Juno will make the same change from Gemini to Cancer on June 22.

Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Saturday June 17 and Sunday June 18 (All times are listed in PDT.)

Saturday June 17 Being more like the tortoise than the hare right now is essential. While the Moon in Gemini makes twin 60-degree favorable alliances, to Mars in Leo (1:15am) and Chiron in Aries (7:34am), and Mercury in Gemini and Venus in Leo revel in their 60-degree rapport (8:30am), Saturn captures the cosmic spotlight by halting its direct motion at 8 degrees of Pisces (10:29am) and beginning a reversal to last until November 3. Focus your gaze on the following Saturn archetypes – responsibility and perseverance, hard work and pragmatism, executive authority, career and professional stature, focus and logic, structure and form, common sense and conservative behavior patterns, the paternal archetype, chronological time, doubt and frustrations, pessimism, chronic difficulties, depression and fears. Stay out of harm’s way and be realistic about what can be accomplished in the physical-material realm. Remember that the dark-of-the-moon phase is ongoing during most of today until the New Moon at 27 degrees of Gemini clocks in at 9:38pm. Usually any solar-lunar merger instantly begins a dynamic forward momentum for the next 30 days. However, with Saturn motionless, looking before you leap is strongly advised. Utilize the key principles and themes provided in the Saturn list to better understand how to successfully make sound and reliable business decisions in the days ahead. With the monthly Moon-Juno union (11:15pm) happening close in time to the New Moon, recognize your capacity to be an advocate for peace-and-harmony around the world. Turn within for extra guidance as the Moon begins a 4+ hour void zone at 11:25pm that leads to the lunar orb entering its natural abode of cardinal-water Cancer at 3:59am on Sunday. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Sunday June 18 Escape the clutches of unnecessary confusion as a void lunar zone in Gemini leads to the Moon entering its natural abode of cardinal-water Cancer at 3:59am. What can cause uncertainty is a square between Juno in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces (2:29am) amplified this evening by a Sun in Gemini square to Neptune (8:55pm). Keeping you on target is the Moon’s transit in the home-family strong fourth sign of the zodiac. Conducting research into your ancestral tree is promoted — especially as the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Jupiter in Taurus (5:47pm) and a harmonious trine to Saturn in Pisces (6:01pm). Since Saturn is still virtually motionless following its station and shift into reverse yesterday, it is wise to maintain a cautious attitude when it comes to professional matters. Fortunately, Jupiter and Saturn are approaching their own 60-degree liaison which will arrive on the scene tomorrow morning. Be prepared to take advantage of golden opportunities materializing on Monday. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
