Eclipse season is finally winding down and it’s (fortunately!) leaving us with a little sparkle on it’s way out. On June 10, we will have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini, which will invite us to initiate changes that will reverberate over the next six months. Are you ready to shake up the way you communicate, experience opportunities to learn new things and open new roads to fulfillment?! Read on to learn more.
For the last few weeks, not only has Mercury been retrograde, but the energy of the first eclipse of the season (the May 26 Full Moon Eclipse) is still lingering. It has been a time of self-reflection and digging deep into our psyches to gain greater understanding of ourselves and our influence on the world. You may have had all sorts of epiphanies, especially in regards to how to manifest a greater sense of freedom that allows you to march to the beat of your own drum. This energy will roll very smoothly into the upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse, especially if you decide to take all the wonderful (and not-so-wonderful) things you’ve learned about yourself into consideration when working on your intentions.
Let’s back up for a moment. What is a New Moon Solar Eclipse and what makes it so special? A New Moon Solar Eclipse is like a super-charged, super-potent new moon. Similar to a regular monthly new moon, this is a great time to begin something new, or at the very least, set intentions to manifest new experiences. However, the key difference between a New Moon and a New Moon Eclipse is that anything situations that arise during or around the time of the eclipse will have a much longer impact on your life. This is due to the presence of the North and South Nodes, which, in Astrology, speak to our higher callings and purpose in this lifetime.
For this reason, eclipses are notorious for helping us recalibrate ourselves on our higher paths, especially if we have veered off in the last six months. Some astrologers even believe that if you watch the days immediately surrounding the eclipse, you will gain great insight into key lessons or focuses over the next six months.
This eclipse will not only be in the sign of Gemini, which rules communication, learning, short-distance travel, transportation and electronics, but it will also be strongly influenced by mercury retrograde and Neptune. Because of this, you may find yourself fighting through a little confusion and mental fog to find the gift during this New Moon Eclipse.
With Mercury still in retrograde until June 22, information might even feel sparse or inconsistent. Moreover, Neptune—which rules perception, illusions, disillusions, addictions and emotional sensitivity—might make our view of reality and ourselves a little touch and go. The trick to finding the diamond in this type of energy is to be willing to question your reality with curiosity and compassion.
This is no time for judgment, blame or any other low-vibe behavior. It’s a time to let Saturn help you to set clear, concise boundaries and goals that will help you access your highest sense of self. You are more powerful than you can even imagine, love. Let this eclipse and the universe guide you to connecting more deeply to your power. Happy New Moon!
Since the Blood Moon Eclipse on May 26, we have been walking a portal between the old and the new, between one state of consciousness and the next. This portal finally comes to an end on June 10, with the arrival of the New Moon Solar Eclipse.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse represents a new beginning. Whatever path has been cleared for us by the Blood Moon, we can now begin to see where we are heading.
No matter where we currently stand, this Solar New Moon Eclipse will ensure that we are headed in the right direction. It signals a time to embrace the new.
Trust in whatever has been moving and shaking for you. Know that whatever needs to fall away will fall, and whatever needs to stay will stay. That is the nature and power of Eclipses.
This June 10 New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in the tropical sign of Gemini at 19 degrees. It is an Annular Eclipse, which means the shadow of the Earth will move into the middle of the Sun, creating a ring of fire.
Gemini is represented by the twins, with one twin being mortal and the other immortal. These two twins represent the duality we face on Earth. We are humans, limited by our physical bodies and in need of material comforts, but we are also limitless souls, on an endless journey of growth.
On a human level, we can find ourselves labeling things or events as good or bad, but on a soul level, we understand the bigger picture and know that all experiences serve their purpose.
Recognizing this duality within us can be tricky, but may also help to bring some ease as we navigate any changing or unsettling energies that flow our way.
How can we let go of the labels and stories we are telling ourselves, and look at things through a new lens?
With Neptune involved in this June Eclipse, and Mercury still in retrograde, we may find ourselves coming face to face with some new information or even mental processes that may feel overwhelming or confusing.
Even though this New Moon Eclipse promises new beginnings and is a fertile time to plant seeds, it calls for us to move slowly and to trust in our intuition. If something feels off, listen.
In fact, a good reminder under this Eclipse energy is to not believe everything you think or hear!
We are walking on new ground now, and we need to get our bearings before we can confidently move ahead, so don’t be afraid to pause and wait till you feel clearer.
Our intuition will be our guide, so if things feel mentally foggy or if you feel like you are being manipulated by someone, be sure to drop in and trust the wisdom and inner guidance of your soul.
Along with Neptune and Mercury both being active at this Eclipse, so too is Saturn. Saturn is also currently in retrograde, and may stir things from our past that need to be looked at once more. This is not about going back to ruminate on the past, rather it is about acknowledging- what have I learned?
We are moving into new territory under this Eclipse, but the wisdom from our past can be a faithful guide.
While the Eclipse is likely to trigger our past memories differently, it may also help to look back to events that took place during May and November of 2020, or if you can think that far back- December 2011. Does anything stand out from these time periods?
