Have you been feeling restless, full of pent-up energy, about ready to burst? Blame the moon: On June 10, a new moon "ring of fire" solar eclipse will occur in Gemini. Eclipses always have a way of urging us toward change, and this one is especially powerful. And it has a fitting name. The event is called a ring of fire eclipse, because the moon's distance from the sun means it won't completely block out the sun's rays. Instead, we'll see a fiery halo in the sky.
New moon eclipses tend to be seen as opportunities to break out of a rut and make positive changes. The new moon can help you in a few ways, first and foremost by suddenly and dramatically opening your eyes to where you need change. These lightbulb moments may be illuminating the ideas that will connect you to your highest truth and path, it's like the eclipse blows in a missing puzzle piece that can connect some dots you have been looking at for months — maybe it’s a chance meeting, an unexpected opportunity or new piece of information." And the realizations can keep happening for days or weeks after the eclipse.
However,...it's "important to understand the limitations of the event: The eclipse won't change your life for you, keep in mind positive change always requires effort on our part. But, if you do act on it, it is indeed a better than usual chance to change your life for the better."
We're getting a triple dose of Gemini energy during the ring of fire eclipse: The moon, the sun, and Mercury retrograde (Gemini's ruling planet!) will all be in the sign of the Twins on June 10, this is the time to let curiosity be our guide as we absorb and download new information that will expand our minds and prove fruitful in the future. Be curious, be open, and be ready to learn something new.
The three planetary bodies will be conjunct with each other. This triple conjunction could very well be interpreted as a need to revisit the ways in which we communicate with ourselves, this event will highlight how important our inner dialogue really is. Ramp up the self-care this week and freshen up that inner dialogue — speak affirmations in the mirror, journal out your feelings, and just work on being kinder to yourself. Even if you feel that you already have a good relationship with your inner self, working to nurture it can't hurt.
These three planets will also be squaring Neptune, the Planet of Illusion in Pisces, this will lead to us making decisions based on our fears and paranoias. Intuition is strong, but not correct. Be careful not to project energy onto others. The message here? For once, be aware that you can't trust your gut, and fact-check any major decisions yoi make. Things will be confusing and a little murky, and since we won’t be able to see things clearly, it’s not advised to act impulsively around this time.
There's one more thing to look out for during the new moon solar eclipse, and that's what's going on in your relationship. The opposition with Neptune could bring tension, as well as a deep need and yearning for freedom." This doesn't necessarily mean that you or your partner will feel compelled to end things — it could just mean that you need your own space right now, and if you allow yourself to have it, in a short while you'll come back together stronger than ever.
So a little bit of rockiness ahead — but it'll be worth it. Change isn’t always comfortable, but it is healthy. Ditch the familiar, stay grounded in your truth, and make room in your head and your heart for a new way of being. You're ready.
