June starts and is full of energy! The New Moon in Gemini occurs on June 10, followed by the annular solar eclipse. The Gemini new moon on Thursday, June 10, 2021, is also an annular solar eclipse. It is joined to Mercury retrograde and square Neptune.
So it’s safe to say that energetically speaking we’re all in for a doozy. Mental confusion and deception are on the horizon. The June 2021 solar eclipse is also influenced by fixed stars which give self-confidence and courage, but also reckless and belligerent behavior.
What we will all need over the next few months is a healthy dose of caution and honesty.
The New Moon:
A New Moon is also a time of rebirth, a time when we are truly fortunate to have a fresh start. Commit to personal goals. Take the time to improve your communication skills by listening to others.
Take time to socialize and appreciate others, and re-evaluate communication and social skills by asking yourself how long we actually take to absorb information, and not just waiting for your turn to speak.
Some of the lessons that Gemini offers are the chance to be comfortable with other people, to make them feel comfortable, and to feel comfortable with ourselves. Instead of just trying to prove your points, just enjoy the moment.
Empathize with the people you talk to and really listen to them. Eclipses trigger changes that are necessary to continue your own life course. They help provide you with the extra energy you need to move on and into something new.
A solar eclipse is like an ordinary New Moon where the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun.
However, it is powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. The June 2021 solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, so not all of the Sun will be darkened. In this type of partial eclipse, the apparent diameter of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun, leaving a ring of light around the eclipsed Sun.
The strongest and most important aspect of astrology is the Sun conjunct the Moon. It gives a burst of energy and invigorating initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.
This means that all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new projects for the future. So this is a great time to make a fresh start, turn a new leaf or start a new project. You can also challenge your old habits, behaviors, and beliefs while looking for new and inventive ways to move forward.
New Moon aspects:
The solar eclipse conjunct Mercury emphasizes your thinking and communications, as well as short-distance travel. Expect an increase in personal interactions in your neighborhood, with siblings, schools, and on the internet.
So it will be a busy eclipse phase with lots of appointments, correspondence, meetings, social activities, new information to process, and decisions to make. This alignment would normally improve your rational thinking, communication, and social skills.
However, with Mercury retrograde and this square eclipse square Neptune, your thought processes are likely to be distorted, leaving you vulnerable to confusion and deception. Mercury retrograde leads to communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items.
You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet people from your past. Be very careful with your words and try not to react too quickly in arguments or if you are provoked. Double-check all your emails and messages before hitting the send button.
Business negotiations will be in a state of flux, so be extra careful when signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and others may be unreliable or dishonest. Neptune square solar eclipse can have a weakening effect on your vitality, making it difficult to be motivated or excited for anything, especially hard work.
Events or other people can cause confusion and disappointment. You may feel insecure, guilty, and sorry. Personal relationships can be prone to dishonesty and deception. Secrets will be harder to keep and harder to uncover. Seeing only the best in people increases the chances of becoming disillusioned or worse.
Excessive idealization and gullibility can lead to loss, scandal or slander. To counter these deceptive influences, you need to be honest in all of your dealings. You might also be more sensitive to certain psychological and health issues.
Paranoia and hypochondria are possible, but you may also be more susceptible to infections and poisonings. Health problems can be difficult to diagnose or there can be a misdiagnosis. Religion and other forms of spirituality or ceremony will help you if you start to lose your faith.
Mercury square Neptune is a source of confusion, deception, insecurity, and misunderstanding. Distorted thinking can complicate discussions and business relationships. It is therefore important to listen carefully and speak in simple and clear terms. Leave no room for misinterpretation.
If you have to deal with important government or legal matters, seek professional advice or help from a trusted friend. You really have to avoid betrayal and scandal. Even little white lies could lead to major embarrassment or the need for more convoluted cover-ups.
Avoid conspiracy theories or weird and extreme spiritual and religious views. Protect yourself against loan sharks, pushy salespeople, cult leaders, and psychic vampires. You may be more sensitive to inflection, poisoning, or overdose.
Saturn square Uranus culminating on June 14 brings a restrictive change or unexpected restrictions to the astrology of the solar eclipse of June 2021. It can bring changes that you don’t want. It’s also more difficult to make the kind of changes you want.
It can be a very frustrating time of increasing tension and sudden and expected changes. But it doesn’t have to be like that. If you remain open-minded, patient, and flexible, what at first seem like challenges can turn into opportunities to let go of the negative, restrictive, and limiting things in your life.
