The Moon is New in Gemini on June 10, 2021, at 6:53 AM EDT. This is an Annular Solar Eclipse.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Gemini: June 10, 2021


This phase of the Moon occurs at 19 degrees and 47 minutes of Gemini.

We can feel the effects of an eclipse up to six months after its occurrence. 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 to others and enjoying others’ points of view, rather than doggedly seeking to find that one “answer”; taking the time to socialize and enjoy people–whether they are neighbors, friends, family, or acquaintances–just for the simple pleasure of doing so; re-evaluating our communication and social skills by questioning just how much we take in information, and communicate in a friendly, non-threatening manner; finding new venues for expressing ourselves and for learning by awakening our curiosity, and refining our writing, speaking, teaching, and listening skills; adding some mental variety to our lives; beginning a new project that involves writing and/or speaking, or that is in the communications field; and opening our minds to gathering more information and facts from our environment.

Some of Gemini’s “lessons” involve learning to be comfortable with people– putting them at ease and feeling at ease ourselves. Rather than communicating solely to prove a point, get our opinions across, or find an answer to problems, Gemini urges us to truly enjoy the moment. By consciously tuning in to positive Gemini energy, we learn that there isn’t always an answer, and we become comfortable with that idea! 

As we learn to let ourselves truly listen, we learn through others simply by being curious, and we improve our social and communication skills simultaneously. We open our minds to more information, and we learn to truly enjoy the variety of different personalities around us. Finally, we become more aware of the superficiality of our communications. 

Although Gemini is sometimes associated with superficial connections and communications, if we dig a little deeper, we’ll see there is much to learn from the light, two-way, and comfortable conversations that characterize the sign.

With the potent Gemini energy of the Solar Eclipse, we have the chance to make essential changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to these matters. Flaws in a fundamental system 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. We may be called to give up something to move forward into a new chapter in our lives. 

Although the “new” may be unrecognizable, it is crucial to surrender to the unknown. Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. On the other hand, we can scatter our energies due to this curiosity and awareness of our many options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.

The Solar Eclipse occurs close to the inferior conjunction of the Sun and Mercury, which marks the middle of the Mercury retrograde cycle. We’re looking back before moving forward. It’s 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.

Note that this eclipse is one of several eclipses, 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.
