Thursday, June 10, 2021, at 3:52 am PDT, our new moon this month is a unique Solar Eclipse that will create a ring of fire for those in the path of the full eclipse view on earth. This eclipse occurs at 19 degrees 47 minutes in Gemini. During this solar eclipse Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini is also in Gemini in its retrograde (21 degrees 41 minutes), bringing the fact-based thinking mind of this eclipse with a slant towards what we tell ourselves, or what our inner world receives and then translates into our reasoning. While retrograde, Mercury’s ability to exact the reasoning or thoughts is slightly less powerful than if direct in motion. We can experience turn-around situations with travel or ideas when Mercury stations direct on June 22nd, if we planned and implemented something in the retrograde cycle. With only a ring of fire peering out from the eclipse made by the moon, we are likely to see communications, students (Gemini), and more “in the dark” about something quite specific and that is quickly changing in a given moment. Often this type of energy precedes the actual eclipse, but it will be significant for several weeks. When the Sun in Gemini is blocked by the eclipsing moon, this is a drop in power for clarity, for what is fact and what is not. This energy can be incredibly powerful for trickster energy, for the archetype of the thief. Be mindful of the elderly at this time, because they will be vulnerable to scams. Cons will delight in what they grab in the dark of this solar eclipse. I wish we had a community barometer for call volumes and other scams, such as phishing that go through emails, because this energy is heightened for such activity. The confusion barometer is high, people will get lost driving in this energy mix, so be mindful of having enough power in your phone for a map, but also an actual paper map, if you need a backup, is highly advised for this lunar cycle! Is it surprising at all that Disney+ is launching the new series for non-other than Loki this week? “I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with glorious purpose.” That line still makes me laugh! Such a trickster!
Jupiter in Pisces at 2 degrees is supportive, with Venus in Cancer at 9 degrees widely in a trine, which symbolizes there are friendly helpers both earthly and divine that support those who are asking, may just appear when you need them. Have faith in goodness, it will appear when you need it. Jupiter is slowing to station retrograde on June 20th less than 25 minutes prior to the summer solstice bringing a significant Jupiter in Pisces in early degrees expansive energy. Use it wisely, bless yourself with additional meditation, music, the joy of art in your life, it will expand your horizons over the summer season and beyond. What you generously give for a humanitarian effort will truly grow in powerful ways.
Neptune in Pisces at 23 degrees will station retrograde at 23 degrees 12 minutes on June 25th, so from the standpoint of speed, Neptune is moving slowly and thus has a heightened presence in our collective psyche, which comes in the form of confusion, escapism, too many substances in our systems, grief and surrendering as well as letting something go. If folks are around water, I highly recommend watching everyone closely, this combination does bring those who do not understand the danger of the water situation, a higher chance for freak accidents in the water.
This begins a new cycle, and it is powerfully set within this solar eclipse. The Sabian Symbol for this new moon (solar eclipse) at 20 degrees Gemini is captured in the image, “A cafeteria with an abundance of choices.” Keep in mind, this will be altered as a symbol by the fact that the Sun is being eclipsed by the moon at this degree of Gemini, so it will be more intense and also highly changeable, mutable of Gemini, too many choices and those who have a hard time making a decision will find this almost so much it will overwhelm them quickly. It is focused on your inner world and your desires are driven by the moon in mutable Gemini! Balance the buzz of what this will stimulate with slow music, to counterbalance the mode as much as you can. Breathing, strong inhale, and exhale whenever you feel the upswing in movement and fast streams of thought. You can slow it down, but you have to focus even more than usual to do it.
This image reflects a change in our communities, with new opportunities opening as we continue to emerge further from the depths of deep quarantines from 2020 and early 2021. The last few weeks of spring beckon us into a new flow, and with that, we will feel and experience a new flow of life. We may find ourselves asking a lot of questions about what we have experienced too because it is our nature to understand life and deepen our understanding of why things flow the way they have and the way new flows are directed by different parts of our community. Sometimes we do not readily have the answers to why things are the way they are, or why things were directed in a certain way, but Gemini is a sign of curiosity and asking questions to know.
Saturn, the planet of boundaries, duty, commitments, and karma (cause and effect) aspects this new moon solar eclipse by trine at 13 degrees Aquarius, as it steadily retraces the degrees in its retrograde cycle eventually to return and station at 6 degrees Aquarius. Another indicator of the slow process of a slower transition within other smaller transitions. How are you transforming what you have been structured to follow in the past 15-18 months? We have all experienced immense restrictions, and now is the slow turning of the tide from the Saturnian perspective, representing the slower cycle that is the change relative to smaller cycles that we experience each month, or each season such as Gemini, a mutable sign exactly indicating a change of season. We have the Saturn square to Uranus in Taurus becoming exact on June 14th. The final square will be late in the year on December 24th. As I have written in previous posts this waning square between Saturn and Uranus is similar to a deconditioning of old paradigms, changing technology and our values, which include property values, money, and currencies, food and food distribution, but also the breakthroughs for where we need new rules of engagement or how we operate when it comes to the collective health and everyone has fair and equal access.
For millions of people, jobs and how our days are structured have transformed immensely and how people work. How many will return to an actual office? How does the home office situation shape changes in our taxes, in actual buildings for companies? What companies will do is shrink their needed office space or create a more flexible office where employees who go into the office do not have their own office but space is more universally shared. This trend will continue and with it, people will seek a living situation they can afford and have the proper space to continue working remotely. Some people miss going to work and may have the option to do so in the coming next few months.
By this fall, most schools will be operating at their usual capacity, perhaps with some protocols still in place. Technology will improve to meet the demands of the fluctuating work from home environments. This paradigm shift in behavior has the potential to have many reducing the hours a week they may work. It will be an interesting potential to observe, with this solar eclipse Sagittarius is the south node of releasing energy. A good question for this solar eclipse is, how are science and facts altering the way we collectively consider dogmatic faiths?
Mars in Cancer at 29 degrees is opposing Pluto in Capricorn at 26 degrees before it enters Leo. This creates a high expression of Mars, highly protective and highly suspicious about all the questions and the facts perhaps that are being presented. Trust could be an issue that bubbles up again in conversations because history has been too sketchy for anyone to feel truly at ease. Mars enters Leo at 6:43 am PDT on June 11th. For those ruled by fire signs, it will feel like a real burst of energy after a lull.
Stay centered with meditation, ask for inner guidance from guides or through the magic that happens only from perfectly timed synchronicity related to a question about a direction or purpose that is important to you and your joyful living. Messengers are surely waiting to hear your call. What’s on your mind? Where and how do you invite the Messengers to show you something delightfully fresh tailor-made just for you? Do you write down your synchronicities? What was the recent synchronicity you had? And why was it important for you? Stay playful, and that will continue to show up too. Namaste. Bless this moment.
