June will bring the second of two eclipses this
spring, and this is a new moon solar eclipse that falls at 19 degrees of Gemini
on June 10th. This is an annular solar eclipse which is sometimes
referred to as a ‘ring of fire’ eclipse as the outer edges of the Sun seem
brightly lit like fire as the moon passes in front of it.
Gemini is all about possibilities, adaptability,
openness and different choices along with communication. Mercury, the planet of
communication is Gemini’s ruling planet and Mercury is retrograde. When Mercury
is retrograde at the time of an eclipse it can delay events connected to the
eclipse, sometimes by days or weeks. Issues could also arise with communication
in term of delays, setbacks or lack of clarity in some way. All electronic
communication could be affected. This will be an extremely busy time and we
should expect more personal action and communication in our neighborhoods, the
internet, with siblings and schools. Meetings, social activities and
correspondence may increase as well.
This eclipse last occurred by degree and sign on
June 10th, 2002 as solar eclipses repeat every 19 years. If you are
old enough to remember this period it may give you a clue as to what you should
expect during this eclipse.
Communication will be important and since Mercury is
retrograde and falls next to the moon, you may feel reflective or connected to
something or someone from the past that could include family members, extended
family or those who are the closest to you.
This eclipse squares Neptune (along with Mercury),
the planet of illusion, delusion and confusion. You could feel tired and
drained, melancholy or confused and unsure of your direction. For some, this
may cause anxiety or a feeling of being uncertain about something or someone. If this is the case make no final determinations
until the energy has passed. At times, new information can be revealed on
Neptune transits. What is needed at the time of this eclipse is clarity,
honesty and caution, as the Moon’s square to Neptune can bring about the
opposite which could result in deception, lack of clarity and confusion if you
do not keep your feet on the ground, and remain steady. If something appears to
be untrue or incorrect, don’t sweep it under the rug. You may feel insecure and prone toward going
down rabbit holes that don’t really exist. This may also complicate or confuse
business deals or other important conversations.
The positive use of this energy is compassion,
creativity and spiritual insights. You could experience any of the above
situations or activities along with vivid dreams and feelings of psychic
As Saturn is square Uranus June 14th this
eclipse may seem very significant in our lives and around the globe. Unexpected
events are prone to occurring at this time on a personal level and in the world
On the world stage we can expect more confusion,
propaganda, conspiracy theories and potential untruths to be revealed in the
days before and after the eclipse. Communication issues and problems may arise
that could include the internet, hackings, mail service or we could hear news
relating to these things. Neptune rules gas, chemical substances and water, and
could see water related weather events or events at sea. In the US we can
expect more news relating to racial issues and inequities and potential
scandal. We could also see or hear of
events concerning those who are considered to be enemies to the US.
This eclipse along with the May 26th lunar
eclipse form an eclipse cycle that will last until the next lunar eclipse
November 19th, so we will continue to see events connected to these
eclipses play out.
