The Solar Eclipse on June 10th is bound to shake things up. Conjunct with Mercury Retrograde and the Sun, and Squared with Neptune, which is at home in Pisces, this is a time in which eyes are forced open and the fog you have been trying to escape from reality into is no longer there to shield you from the truth of the world. For many, this may feel like a slap in the face as reality truly does bite, but its venom acts more like the antidote needed in order to fix their vision.
The New Moon in Gemini tells us to speak our truth, even if our voice shakes. The prior Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius urged us to find that truth, and so now it is time to communicate it out into the World.
Gemini isn’t here for the nonsense, while it does want to have fun and see the lighter side of things, in the end this energy knows that there is a way to breakthrough borders, boundaries, and to get results quickly. Even though hard work is involved and can take time, Gemini can see the shortcuts available to speed up the process. New pathways, mindsets, and a need to separate the heart from the mind are focused during this time, to help aid the process of detaching from emotional entanglements that keep us bound to situations which do not offer growth or that threaten the need for independence. With that said, codependent behaviors will be highlighted so to understand where the detachment needs to be put into place.
This Eclipse is not going to be gentle and will not allow sympathetic or empathetic needs to get into the way of what truly serves the highest good of those who need this liberation. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Gemini reminds us that we can feel sorry for others, but we should enable a victim-mentality or allow things to continue as they have been. It’s the tough love that we all need in order to grow, the slap in the face we need in order to see things clearly, and the rug being pulled beneath our feet in order to gain better balance.
The New Moon in Gemini is all about duality and wants us to balance the masculine and feminine polarities within us, so not to attach ourselves onto others, addictions, or a need to run from ourselves because of being so imbalanced. This is where these imbalances are being shown, so we can plant the seeds in knowing where we need to make the next steps in order to take better care of our health, mind, heart, and soul. It all starts with Self, and we mustn’t forget that we are both shadow and light, and oftentimes when one is fed more than the other, those imbalances can attract people, situations, or vices into our lives that keep us trapped in a state of separation from ourselves and Source.
This is the perfect time to sit and contemplate on which aspects of yourself you are fueling more, your shadow or your light, and which one is being neglected and screaming for recognition and to be healed. What situations are crumbling in our lives that have been a result of fueling one polarity more than the other, and what parts of our reality are we running from, and why? Then try to understand where this stems from, what wound must be healed, what pleasure is being overly indulged in, and what parts of ourselves are we denying.

Eclipses are like super-powered New & Full Moons, but also endowed with chaotic energy, and so while it can empower our rituals or intentions, it can also send them all over the place because of the chaotic energy they encompass. It is vital to ensure that your intentions are precise and that whatever you are focused on manifesting, is connected to your higher purpose, otherwise you can end up dealing with a backlash of energy that propels you into a cycle of new lessons that push you to realize why certain desires or pathways are not good for you. For example, if you are desiring a romantic relationship but have issues with loving yourself, then the next 6 months until the portal of Eclipses is over, is going to signal a time of learning to love yourself by going through situations that focus on where you lack the self-love you need.
We are an eternal dance of Shadow and Light, and we encompass both masculine and feminine aspects within us. This New Moon and Solar Eclipse asks you to determine which polarity you have been neglecting, which one is taking the driver’s seat, and how you can honor them both so to bring them back into balance.
OTHER ITEMS TO CONSIDER
Dedicated for your Sun and/or Moon sign
Aries you need to ask yourself why you will not get out of your own way. Everything you want and desire is right in front of you, and yet you keep hesitating to reach out for it. Typically, you would bulldoze through any obstacle and take what you want at lightening speed, but this time around, you are almost expecting it to just fall into your lap, with no action taken on your part. How can you expect to move forward and achieve your goals if you simply won’t move? Perhaps its harbored resentment from the past, harsh words from those who tried to push you down that still speak in your mind, or maybe it’s the fact that you are scared of honing your own independence and leaving behind codependent behaviors. It can be many things that, but in the end, it’s all in your own head and you might be perceiving things to be far worse than they truly are, within yourself. The New Moon & Solar Eclipse is pushing you to act, to strike while the iron is hot, and to take everything that you want. Get out of your own way.
You’ve planted the seeds and have been taking such good care of your new goals, ideas, and need for growth, but yet, nothing is blooming. You might be tempted to just throw in the towel and call it quits because you are tired of seeing what everyone else has, and how their gardens are in full bloom, while yours is still barely budding. Perhaps you are missing an important step or going about things in the wrong way – such as keeping old behavioral or thought patterns which energetically thwart the growth of your garden. It’s almost like wishing for good health but still having the mentality that you are sick – you will not achieve what you want if you still carry old cycles of thoughts from the past. There may be some lifestyle changes that come up during the Eclipse, such as certain routines you are so used to that are actually causing your soil to be barren.
So close, yet so far away. You might feel as if you are never going to reach a goal or invoke the changes you need to. You’ve been trying so hard for this past while and yet nothing has really budged, and you are getting tired of it all. You are so tired of struggling and with having a past full of so much strife within this situation, you feel that no matter what you do, your efforts aren’t seeming to be worth anything. You need to focus your energy better and perhaps adopt a sort of tunnel vision if you keep getting distracted by your surroundings, which can cause the disruption of focused energy that is needed. You are so close to achieving a treasured goal and it would be a pity to give up now – the last thing you want to do is throw in the towel only to look back and realize you were only a few steps away from the finish line.
Who is truly in your corner, Cancer? You may need to do an inventory of your friends, lovers, and even family members to determine who caters to your growth and supports your dreams, and who takes from your energy, siphoning from your life force and causing you to hold back from reaching for what you desire. The right people in your life will always push you to succeed, even if they have to tell you uncomfortable truths in how you are holding yourself back – they only do this because they care and have your best intentions at heart. With the right people in your life, you can create the beauty and fulfillment you desire within your environment, and also within your heart.
You crave movement, Leo, you are so tired of being stagnant and stuck within a cycle that does not offer any growth and only continues to weigh you down. You see opportunities for advancement and have people on your side, as well as new connections coming through, that want you to succeed. In fact, you may have connected with someone recently who has offered you a valuable opportunity to invoke changes in your life that will cater to bringing about the new experiences you crave so much, and so it would be a shame not to take this person up on this offer. While you have that 5-year plan in your heart, you may need to make some changes to that, as it does seem there are certain aspects that don’t fit to the new growth you are acquiring and so it is time to get back to the drawing board and to formulate a new plan. This is an exciting time for you – be ready to take part on an adventure that could alter the rest of your life.
Rest is needed Virgo – which might not be easy for a busy body such as yourself. But you need it. You cannot continue to go down the path you are on if you are running on empty, as you could risk burning out, getting injured, sick, or worse, losing out on important opportunities that are needed because you didn’t listen to your body, heart, and your mind when it needed you to slow down. Consider on ways you can relax and rest your tired body and your mind – do not worry about the World around you, it will continue to spin without you having to run circles around. Everything you have been working on will be exactly where it was when you get back to work, and better yet, you will feel rejuvenated and refreshed so to take things to an even higher level than you thought possible.
Harbored resentment is going to cry for a release during the Eclipse, and if you don’t listen, it is going to drag your heart and your mind down. You need to focus on ways you can speak your truth without coming across as judgmental or overly harsh – you need to express your needs without making demands that no one wants to follow through with because of the way you come across to them. You might be upset that you thought you could count on certain people in your life only to feel abandoned or that you only fit in their lives for their convenience. This is where you learn to draw boundaries, and also learn how to focus your energy more on yourself. You may need a little time to yourself so to consider what your heart and your mind are trying to tell you, which will make it much easier to express your truth so that it is heard and received.
You are about to enter a period of supreme growth, Scorpio, and it is going to be beautiful. Your intuition is on point, however, your emotions might be a bit scattered or attached to a situation that the truth you are seeking isn’t completely clear. It would be wise to keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself right now until you can figure out what Source is trying to tell you. Pay attention to the synchronicities you receive, the messages that come through, and even those divine interventions which are bound to happen during this time. You are about to invoke some incredibly changes in your life that will bring about the experiences you have been searching for, and so it is vital you tend to your needs and invest your energy back into yourself. Don’t be surprised if you ask the Universe a question and someone passes you by on the street and answers it for you, or a random song comes on the radio which speaks to your soul and offers the insight you need.
Changes are bound to happen during the Eclipse, or at least the insights on what changes you must invoke into your life. Perhaps you have been wanting these changes for quite some time, but the timing wasn’t right or you were too reluctant to take hold of them because of some sort of limitation you had dragging you down, either within yourself, a relationship, or your career – whatever it was, it is something that you have been clinging to and suffering all along because you don’t want to give up, or give in to defeat. You can’t look at it that way though, as the Universe has offered you a chance to take hold of the liberation you have been praying for, and while it might require you to take a bold new step forward and to push past these old limitations, it will bring about the growth and positive changes you have been wanting for a very long time.
They say if you a dream a dream more than once then it is sure to come true. While that might seem more imbedded in fantasy than reality, you have to leave room for magick to bless your life and miracles to create the breakthroughs you have been praying for. Changes are occurring and they are here to serve your highest good, making way for the things you had pray for to take form. It is important to ask yourself during this time what you truly want but to let go of any expectation that things need to occur in a certain fashion in order for magick to occur, because magick does not go by the confines of structure, in fact, pushing too many rules and regulations upon it will only create restraint.
Ask yourself what you are investing into – what energies are you focusing on that are depleting you, and not giving back what you had put in. You cannot water dead plants and expect them to blossom, and you cannot invest too much outside of yourself and expect to feel whole. There is a void within you that you have been trying to fulfill through things that you are not aligned with, and so it is siphoning from your energy rather than fueling it. Take a step back and start conserving your energy, invest back into yourself, and things will start to pick up in the areas you needed movement.
A karmic experience is coming to a close and the end result, whether you are going to add to your karmic bank, or pay dues, will be determined. You have been involved with an experience for quite some time in which circumstances have not been fair to you, and because of that, you had suffered. Still, you chose to walk the high road and are not allowing this situation to bring you down as it had in the past, and because of that, you will be rewarded. The resolution you need is in sight, so keep walking that high road and the new pathway needed will present itself.
