Solar Eclipse in Gemini: Put pen to paper.
Hi, Everyone, As I write this article, I feel the uncertainty, unpredictability, and magic that are all possible in this Solar Eclipse in Gemini. The Solar Eclipse occurred at 6:53 am EDT at 19 degrees and 47 minutes of the mutable air sign of Gemini. This has been such a confusing and exhausting buildup with mutable options and choices so prominent in the sky. The Solar Eclipse occurs during a new moon when the moon passes between the sun and the earth and the blocks the sun’s light, which casts a shadow over the earth. This eclipse season has been very confusing because there is so much mutability. We just experienced a Total Lunar Eclipse that occurred at 5 degrees and 25 minutes of the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius and brought many endings and much change. That Eclipse squared Jupiter in the mutable water sign of Pisces and expanded the emotional floodgates for all of us. Mercury, the rulers of communication, thoughts, ideas, travel, and transportation, rules the mutable air sign of Gemini and has been transiting in its dignity in the sign of Gemini since May 3, 2021 and giving us a lot of information, ideas, and clues as to how we must learn in our journey going ahead. Mercury is currently retrograde and is very prominent in this Solar Eclipse!
The Solar Eclipse occurred at 19 degrees and 47 minutes of Gemini, and Mercury was at 20 degrees and 41 minutes of the mutable air sign of Gemini — less than a degree off from this Eclipse, which wants us to know so many things! Mercury met up with the moon at 8:37 am EDT to help process the emotions and creativity so potent in this eclipse. This Eclipse has a lot intellectual potential with Mercury so close in its dignity while transiting in Gemini; yet, Neptune is also so prominent and is anything but logical. Neptune rules dreams and the imagination. It is currently transiting in the mutable water sign of Pisces and stations retrograde on June 25, 2021 at 23 degrees of Pisces. We will feel that buildup five days before and five days after. Jupiter, the Grand Benefic, is also currently transiting in the mutable water sign of Pisces. This expands all of the magic, creativity, inspiration, emotions, and delusion each of us can feel. Jupiter rules Pisces in ancient astrology and is in its dignity. Jupiter stations retrograde on June 20, 2021, and we feel that station five days before and five days after. Magic and confusion all at once!
This Solar Eclipse squares Neptune and dissolves many things, as it clears space for new options and choices. Gemini is a sign of duality, choices and options. It reminds of the Lovers card in Tarot. In this Solar Eclipse chart, I cast the chart for Washington D.C. The Eclipse has Cancer Ascendant, which means that the moon rules the chart. The New Moon falls in the twelfth house of spiritualty, endings, and hidden information. Eclipses are a time of heightened energy and are a pressured period of time, in which much change happens in a short period of time. Sometimes, Eclipse can eclipse people and things out of your life altogether. If something is brewing with someone that you do not want to shake up too much, I would back off from confrontation until this energy subsides. Eclipses often uncover hidden information and bring things to light. They make us see things in a way that we never have before. They uncover deception. This is doubly true while in the sign of Gemini that has one more than one side of the story; not to mention that this New Moon Eclipse is in conflict with Neptune, the planet of hidden fears and desires.
On June 10, 2021, The Sun meets up with Mercury in Gemini at 9:13 pm EDT and brings more information to the surface. The messages, the signs, and the stories are brewing! Flooding metaphorically and literally and pouring into all corners of our lives and psyche. Just a few days ago, part of the internet came down with several sites like Amazon and pinterest. A few days ago, the U.S. seized most of the ransom from Colonial Pipeline attack, and the deception was uncovered there as well. What hacks are you uncovering in your own lives? On June 9, 2021, there was severe flooding in Philadelphia with many trees toppling over in streets. There are many tears flooding in people’s lives, or things getting dissolved and washed away. Let it rings off and clear the path. The 12th house in astrology is the Pisces house, as Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac. Mercury is retrograde until June 22, 2021 and transits in Gemini until July 11, 2021. This gives us all opportunity to learn the messages so intuitive and pronounced in this particular Eclipse. This is one where you want to learn, connect, network, teach, and write. However, you want to pay attention to your intuition. The past few weeks, I have felt an exhaustion like I have not felt since March of 2020.
It is different than when in the midst of the year of lockdown. It is a more of a need to surrender at times, lie back, and let life be. That is Jupiter in Pisces — trying to restore through connecting to source, music, magic, manifesting, love, and rest. The pace has been so fast during the New Age of Aquarius that the tempo has been at times too choppy and anxious. When Jupiter changed signs on May 13th, the shift was perceptible. With Jupiter in Aquarius, it was fast, fixed change. With Jupiter in Pisces, it is swimming in a sea of emotions and creative insight. It is about surrounding as you listen to the sounds of nature all around you.
The twelfth house eclipse is about listening to your inner voice. Many things have felt surreal for quite a while. Mercury was out-of-bounds most of the month of May; now it is retrograde and a key player in this Solar Eclipse, which has three points in Gemini: The North Node of Fate, where we are meant to go and learn; The Sun, which is ego and identity; The moon, which is how you process your emotions; Mercury, the planet of information and ideas.
Mercury in Gemini is in a very strong position while in Gemini, as it helps to learn in a facile way and connect to gather information. However, Mercury in the 12th house invites you to listen to your inner guidance. Your intuition is just as strong as your intellect, and you will vacillate between both a lot in the next few weeks.
It is time to put pen to paper and write down your options. This is a New Moon, and your imagination is keyed in right now. Tap into it and dream! Suspend disbelief, write down your fears and desires, and say them out loud. Listen to music, clear the air, burn palo santo or sage — whatever it is for you to clear space to invite new options. Write them down!
So much possibility at your fingertips if you do not indulge the fears of uncertainty too deeply. Acknowledge them and then cast them aside. Some things will be dissolved. Uncertainty is not theoretical in this case; it is definite. Sometimes, there is magic in blurred lines if you let yourself see it in a different way. If anything we have learned, structure is a word we are redefining in the New Age of Aquarius.
Saturn and Uranus are building up to square one another again on June 14, 2021, and this will bring more chaos and disruption, as we all structure our brilliance, connections, and infinite opportunities that do exist in this brilliant era. Have no doubt that there are so many new ways to enable us to reinvent, and we have only just begun. The Sun in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces on June 13, 2021 and more things might dissolve, and tears will be shed. However, remind yourself that there are magical forests in which you can disappear. There are dreams that are not beyond your reach. This is a time to create magic, and anything is possible. I really do believe that.
The New Moon is a great time to do the Law of Abundance. Take a blank check and and date it for June 10, 2021. Where it says, “Pay to the order of, print your full name. Leave the small numeric box blank. Where your normally write the dollar amount, print, “Paid in Full.” At the bottom of the check where you normally sign your name, print, “The Law of Abundance. I wish you much luck!
