The New Moon is on Saturday, June 17, at 11:37 am in 26° Gemini. Gemini energy is lively and playful, great for socializing and mental fun like games and puzzles. The days around a Gemini new moon are often filled with lots of short, quick communications. Because Neptune is square (inharmonious) to the New Moon, incoming communications are likely to include information that is incomplete or more creative than factual. For our outgoing messages, re-check emails and texts that they clearly say what you meant to say before sending. Keep in mind that a New Moon doesn't happen exactly at that moment. It has an influence of at least 3 days before and after.
Saturn is at a stationary point also on the 17th, turning retrograde at 7° Pisces. A week on either side of that date, things like traffic run slower, it takes longer to get from here to there. New responsibilities taken on during a Saturn station take longer than planned to accomplish. Strategies include focusing on priorities and remembering that success will be delayed but not denied to you.
Neptune goes retrograde on June 30 at 27° Pisces. Keywords for Neptune stationary points are nebulous, foggy, dreamy, creative, musical.
