When you have eclipse season that means you have a lunar followed by a solar eclipse. An eclipse means the Sun and the Moon are both within 10 degrees of the North and South Node. They are not planetary bodies; rather, they are mathematical points that consider the relationship between the Sun, Moon, and Earth at the time of our birth.
The North Node is our destiny, what we came to accomplish in this lifetime. The South Node represents where we have already been, it is our Karma. We have strengths we came into this lifetime with, the South Node, experiences that taught us many things. In this lifetime we may be paying off some sort of debt because of the things we did in a past lifetime. We are not meant to stay stuck in the South Node, but learn the lessons and head north.
We can’t ignore one or the other. The North and South Node are always opposing each other, one cannot exist without the energy of the other. To use them best, means to learn how to find the perfect balance point between the two opposing energies. The Lunar eclipse was about an emotional release, letting go of that South Node energy. This Solar eclipse in Gemini is on the New Moon and with the North Node. This release allows us to follow our path. The Sun shows up as something physical in our daily life. Blocks removed from our physical reality are easily seen and experienced. Lunar events, deal with emotions, and can be much more subtle.
On June 10th at approximately 3:45 am Pacific Time the Sun and Moon will be exact at 19 degrees and 47 minutes of Gemini. While the Eclipse won’t be visible on the West Coast there is a chance to view this on the East Coast. The New Moon still means a new beginning where Gemini themes are concerned. You can read more about that here. But because of the Eclipse energy it means something may need to be cut out of your path. Sometimes this is a physical removal of someone from your life, the loss of a job, or a sudden move. Whatever it is the event is fated and not one you should spend any time trying to change. The best way to use this energy is to focus on releasing a block to your Gemini energy in your chart. If you do the work yourself the Universe doesn’t have to come along and do it for you. Say for instance I have this client, I will call her Red, she has the New Moon Solar eclipse in her 10th house of career. She could choose to quit her job and start pursuing her destiny on her own, or her job that does not support her path, could instead be taken from her. Gemini as a 10th house, or your midheaven, uses your communication skills to teach others. There is something she is meant to teach others, and if her current career path doesn’t support that then an eclipse is the perfect time to make that major shift on your own.
Making this eclipse even more interesting is the conjunction to Mercury who is now in full on retrograde motion. This means something from your past needs to have a second look. Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, and the messenger to the Gods. This means important messages are coming through. The only challenge is you need to know what is real and what is too good to be true. Mercury is making a square to Neptune in Pisces, which is pretty dreamy, but also very delusional. So, if you tried to kid yourself about something from the past, pretend it wasn’t as bad as you thought it was, you will have a pretty rude awakening. Don’t let that be you. Your new beginning may come with a great big reality check. Your eyes will be wide open and you may finally have to see the truth in a particular situation. Deluding yourself any longer just won’t cut it. Mercury and Neptune have been meeting up for a while now. So, this has been showing up for you already. This is the 2nd meeting of these two because of the retrograde. They will meet up a 3rd and final time at the end of the retrograde or post shadow period. When these two meet for the final time, you want to be completely done with this issue.
The South Node opposes the New Moon and sits next to the marriage asteroid Juno. There could be some karmic relationship you have to release in order to move forward. You are finally able to settle your past life debt with this marriage or business partner. This could be any commitment currently that is associate with the past and paying off or releasing some sort of debt. Saturn the ruler of Karma is in retrograde and still in positive contact with both of the Nodes. This means it is also forming a loose trine to this New Moon. When you commit to this new beginning, make a plan, and execute, this is when Saturn rewards you.
Mars and Pluto will have been opposing each other the week leading up to the Eclipse and still pushing against one another as Mars gets ready to leave the sign of Cancer. It is sitting at 29 degrees opposite Pluto retrograde at 26 degrees of Capricorn. This is a war of some sort that is starting to wane, but still a player. This is some government power struggle that is coming back up to been seen and resolved. But it won’t be done peacefully.
They say the area where an eclipse is visible may experience some major disruptions. With the East Coast of the US experiencing the eclipse and Gemini being an Air Sign, and the Moon, who rules the Oceans involved, there is a chance that Hurricane season will be stronger than normal for the next 6 months. Washington D.C. is of course on the East Coast which could mean more issues within the Capitol. Or maybe a new beginning, like statehood. Gemini also rules the lungs, so Covid is not going away anytime soon unfortunately. But it could mean a new beginning as far as solutions for fighting the new variants that are popping up now. No matter the issues that come up because of the eclipse they each give us an opportunity to change the way we are handling a situation. For instance, severe weather is a result of climate change. We can all make small changes to reduce our carbon footprint and support mother earth. We are not powerless, we just have to choose how to use what we have.
The following is a brief summary of the impacts based on your Sun, Moon or Rising sign. The one you will notice most is the Rising Sign. Sun is an internal impact and the Moon an emotional one.
Gemini – this happens in your first house which represents the self, your self-confidence, and your physical body. A block may be removed that helps you achieve a personal goal, because you are finally confident in yourself again. This is a new beginning in your life and how you present yourself to the world.
Taurus – Gemini represents your 2nd house, which is your values, your self-worth, and the income you make. This could bring in a new source of income, but you may have to let go of one that no longer serves you first. You want to be paid what you are worth, and that may mean changing jobs.
Aries – the 3rd house rules your community, transportation, and your communication skills. This can also be school. You could be ready to sign up for classes, or be ready to start a YouTube channel. You are ready to teach what you have learned. You may need to release your fear of leaving the community you are currently in.
Pisces – the 4th house is home and family. You may finally get the home of your dreams. Or some kind of new beginning with your mom, or a change in how you ‘mother’ others. Perhaps you are going to start teaching people about real estate. You just have to believe you actually do know what you are talking about.
Aquarius – the 5th house rules fun, romance, hobbies. In order to have fun, you need to change the way you think about romance. It doesn’t have to always turn out bad. You have to release the past and the bad experiences you had. When you do romance won’t feel so heavy. It will feel light and free and you will be better able to express your emotions! Yes, this means get out of your head where romance is involved.
Capricorn – the 6th house can bring you a new job, or some new beginning in your daily life. But with Mercury there the offer may come from someone you worked for in the past. Just make sure this is the real deal and you check over all the facts about the offer pretty thoroughly. This could also bring a new beginning where your health is concerned. Again, you need to make sure the plan you are going to follow is a healthy one and you know all the facts.
Sagittarius – the 7th house brings you an opportunity for a serious relationship or partnership. If you are in one that does not serve you then it could also be time for a break up. With Mercury there though you could just be having more serious conversations with your partner and talking about how and when you want to take things to the next level. After all this isn’t like the first time you have had this conversation, but you might actually be able to take real steps to get you there this time.
Scorpio – the 8th house feels like home to you. Scorpio is the natural ruler of the 8th house of death, transformation, intimacy and the resources you receive from others. If in a partnership this means your partner could get a raise or a new source of income. This could also be a tax return, or lottery win. If looking to improve the intimacy with your partner you need to clear the air about the past and make a fresh start.
Libra – the 9th house represents faraway places, foreign travel, and a connection to spirit. It is also the house of higher learning, like pursuing an advanced degree. You could decide to go back to school. A subject you have long been drawn to may finally pull you in and you are ready to start learning again.
Virgo – Gemini for you is your 10th house of career and fame, it is the top of the chart. You are recognized when you are at the top of your game. This could bring you recognition in your career or bring you a new career milestone. Someone from the past may be involved in presenting this new opportunity to you. Just make sure you aren’t wearing rose colored glasses as you contemplate making a change.
Leo – the 11th house brings you luck and good fortune. This is when your networking finally pays off. You can find your tribe, meet a benefactor, receive some sort of blessing. You are finding your voice and being recognized for it. Perhaps finding your stage. You could need to release some tie to children or your childhood to accomplish this.
Cancer – the 12th house rules our subconscious mind. This also rules large institutions, like a hospital or government. This could be some new contract or offer coming in for you. Again, you have to look over all the details before you sign on the dotted line. This could be a good time to do work with a therapist or hypnotherapist to remove subconscious blocks as well. You no longer have to be trapped by the past.
Eclipse energy can be felt well before the actual eclipse and even up to 6 months later. But something will start during this window of time. Depending on where you fall in the sign, which depends on what time you were born, the impact you feel may be described by the sign in front or behind yours. The only way to know for sure is to either book a reading with me, or create a free chart on an astrology site and try to decipher it on your own. Trust that any changes coming in for you are fated and you just need to have faith and trust and let Spirit work its magic for you. What is being cut out needs to go. Don’t fight to keep it.
Love and Light!
