Thursday, JUNE 10
This morning’s New Moon is a Solar Eclipse. In the Mercury-ruled sign of Gemini, communications, daily interactions, and learning are a strong focus and subject to new beginnings.
This is a time to improve our communication skills by listening and enjoying different points of view, rather than doggedly seeking to find that one “answer.” We’re finding new venues for expressing ourselves and learning. Refining our writing, speaking, teaching, and listening skills or adding some mental variety to our lives can be in focus.
Flaws in fundamental systems in our lives reveal themselves around the time of the eclipse, prompting us to redo or start fresh. Something ends for something else to start anew.
This Solar Eclipse occurs close to the inferior conjunction of the Sun and Mercury, also happening today. This conjunction marks the middle of the Mercury retrograde cycle. We’re looking back before moving forward. Thie eclipse is also square Neptune, pointing to some unclear thinking and certain things left up in the air. We can be wrestling with perceptions and expectations. It’s hard to see our path, but our discomfort with the past can be very real now, motivating new beginnings.
This eclipse is one of several, running from June 2020 to December 2021, occurring along the Gemini/Sagittarius sign axis. It’s a further prompt to improve and change our communications and transportation systems.
The inferior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun tonight gives us a unique window into the past as it might impact our future. We begin looking at problems or issues from a new perspective and with a new understanding. Significant new ideas are born at this time, and they’re likely to have real staying power or importance in our lives. What we say or write now has an impact, for better or for worse! However, we may not have all the facts necessary to come to a definite conclusion, and we might later have to revise plans or decisions. The Moon spends the day in Gemini.
The void Moon occurs from 1:38 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Neptune), until the Moon enters Cancer tomorrow, Friday, June 11th, at 3:23 AM EDT.
