Communication, Partnership, Received Wisdom
The June 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini is a complicated one. Eclipses show us our shadow and this one being a Solar Eclipse means that our shadow will show itself in our behavior and other people might see it. During this eclipse how we behave matters, because this is an initiating eclipse (because it’s conjunct the North Node) and how we behave during it will set the tone for our future experiences in this lifetime and possibly other lifetimes to come. Sowing good karma is important to do during an eclipse like this one and because it’s in Gemini, how we communicate matters.
This eclipse also includes a Mercury Retrograde period, so we may be called to clean up old miscommunications during it. As if that weren’t enough, it also includes a Juno Retrograde period, which has thrown all of us into a time of “relationship retrospection,” where we are reflecting on our past relationships and the past of the relationships we are in now. Neptune, Pallas Athene and Vesta square the eclipsed Sun, bringing wisdom that comes from metaphysical sources and that you have to ALLOW to come in, you can’t just go and grab it. The key is to keep conversations open-ended and don’t hold the expectation that you can get closure now. Which isn’t a reason not to try.
