New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini:
Self-Expression and the Higher Mind...
NEW MOON (+ SOLAR ECLIPSE) in GEMINI
10th June 2021: 6:53 am EST
We’ve not long had a Lunar Eclipse in fiery, independent and visionary Sagittarius; well, now it’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sag’s opposite, Gemini. This Solar Eclipse will affect people with planets in the mutable signs most: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, at 15 to 25 degrees. You should look to your natal chart (birth chart) to refamiliarize yourself with your influencing planetary factors, specifically with this degree bracket. Any planets which lie in these four signs will provide key insight into what is being lit up and highlighted for you at the time of this powerful New Moon.
Key qualities to be aware of: -
● Gemini is a dual sign also known as ‘the Twins.’ Gemini is intelligent, witty, perceptive and inquisitive. This air sign loves to interact with the world through the sharing of ideas and information.
● Gemini is associated with the mind and the planet Mercury, the Messenger planet of communication. They’re colorful, bright, and self-expressive individuals and are also connected to their inner child.
● A New Moon is a time of new beginnings, fresh starts and new perspectives. When coupled with a Solar Eclipse, the focus turns towards how we interact with the world, our external realities.
Self-expression is key.
Express yourself! This month’s Moon and Solar Eclipse is all about self-expression, letting love, light, and insight flow. You may choose to do this through music, art, imaginative activities, poetry, dance, arts & crafts, or any other creative or imaginative outlet. Movement is highly favored too. Our inner child’s come to light during a Gemini New Moon. Combined with a Solar
Eclipse which brings a celestial and cosmic vibration, we will all be wanting to play and let loose. Creativity favors strongly now.
Go outside and play. Connect with lovers and friends, community ties and kindred spirits. Have fun and let life force energy flow, as this will help you in other areas. It’s important that you reconnect with nature and your innocence this month, especially if you wish to advance in business, finances or career. Balance is a key theme because this Solar Eclipse occurs on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis (more on this later).
Open up… communicate.
Linked to the above is the innate pull we will all have to express our truth and share our feelings. Emotions, beliefs, philosophies, and internal impressions all want to come out at the time of the New Moon Solar Eclipse. Gemini is one of the most communicative and expressive star signs, yet they are also one of the most emotionally blocked (imbalanced, limited…). This is due to Gemini being an air sign and predominantly mind-based or mental. Unlike emotional or instinctive signs, Gemini thinks and then thinks some more. There is a slight lack of instinct and emotional intelligence- and emotional vulnerability- however this New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse. Eclipses are potent portals to the higher self.
Find ways to express your truth. Open up to people closest to you- don’t be afraid of being vulnerable or honest and authentic. Releasing and healing is essential now, as there is great opportunity for release and self-evolution. Embody Sagittarius’ courage and fierce bravery and remember that all Eclipses bring the energy of spiritual alignment. Spirit is all-encompassing, omniscient, benevolent, and unconditionally loving.
A adjust your attitude.
A shadow trait of Gemini is that they can be very deceiving and manipulative. One of the “lower” characteristics of the dual Twins is that they like to engage in gossip. Gemini can receive a kickoff of spreading mistruths and false information! Their mind thrives from stimulation which leaves them steering towards superficiality, deception, and manipulation- ‘mind games’ in other words. You need to be careful of what you say and how you say it, and your intentions when communicating and interacting with others.
The best thing you could do is to take some time for meditation and introspection. Align yourself so your mind does not rule you. We have a higher mind and a lower mind, of course; a higher self as explored in my last blog about Sagittarius (the Lunar Eclipse on May 26th). This Eclipse season occurring over two consecutive months lights up the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. Gemini and Sagittarius are opposites, they are directly opposite each other in the Zodiac wheel. This is a call for balance. Inner harmony. Balancing internal polarities and eclectic mixes of energies for unification and wholeness.
The mind is largely in focus at this time; thus, you will be receiving guidance on what you can do to adjust your attitude and realign your mindset. Try your best to stay positive. But be mindful of the opportunity presented for shifting and significant transformation… A Solar Eclipse in Gemini presents wonderful opportunities for realizing where you have been giving into gossip, manipulation, deception, self-denial, and other lower traits associated with the mind and ego. You want to aim for something higher, something more honest, integral, and pure, therefore consider spending some time connecting to planet Jupiter and the positive qualities of Sagittarius. Refer to the previous post for clarity on this!
Expand your mind and consciousness.
And, linked to this are keyways to open your mind and expand your consciousness. One natural way of transcending the lower mind is to turn your attention to the higher mind, what expands and evolves your consciousness? Ask yourself this and then take steps towards a new way and a new path. Read more books, watch more documentaries, and learn about quantum physics, astrology and numerology, or metaphysics. Discover the consciousness expanding avenues of holistic and alternative health, herbal medicine and wisdom, and the Healing Arts, like Reiki, energy healing and shamanism. There is so much inspiration, insight and wonder available in this world. The mind is a tool.
Gemini knows more than many. Gemini sign is extremely curious and inquisitive. They love learning about a range of subjects and topics, so find ways to channel your inner curiosity and desires for self-realization into mind-expanding and consciousness-raising pursuits. Think in terms of holism, spirituality, higher philosophy and wisdom, and anything considered “alternative” or “esoteric.” By opening yourself up to the beauty, magic, and magnificence of the subtle-spiritual and energetic universe, you will organically rev up your vibe and further navigate away from the egotistical and deceptive ways of the lower mind.
