All About June's New Moon and What It Means for Your Zodiac Sign

June's new moon peaks on June 6, a few weeks ahead of the full Strawberry Moon on June 21 this year



This summer's going to be sweet, we can already taste it!

June's full moon is nicknamed the Strawberry Moon, rising a few weeks after the new moon peaks on June 6 this year.

In comparison to the radiant glow of its full moon counterpart, a new moon blends in with the night sky. Despite a new mooon's faint appearance from Earth, its astrological energy will be present and significant for all zodiac signs.

PEOPLE's resident astrologer Kyle Thomas says new moon periods (which occur once every 28.5 days) "always open a doorway to us depending on where it falls for our Sun sign and in our natal charts." He notes there are "various astrological aspects" coloring this lunation, in particular.

The new moon unites with Venus upon its arrival, which Thomas says will put "emotions, relationships and feelings at the forefront of our thoughts and lives." This union, however, will be square with Saturn, which he says can cause "delays, challenges or frustrations" in our personal lives.

The planetary ruler of this lunation is Mercury, which will be united with Jupiter (the planet of luck and expansion) and linked in a "beautiful angle" to Pluto (the planet of transformation). Thomas says "we could experience tremendous positive or professional growth" with "an optimistic mindset."

Mars, meanwhile, clashes with Pluto, which Thomas says may cause "tempers to bubble up" around this time. "Trust your intuition now, but also utilize your communication skills to negotiate the best plans forward," he advises.

Read on for what June's new moon could mean for you according to your zodiac sign, per Kyle Thomas' predictions!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)


It may seem like money is always on the mind, Taurus.

Thomas predicts June's new moon may have you feeling "a bit burnt out," making you excited "to lie low and recharge your batteries" as a result. Go with the flow and don't overexert yourself!
