A Solar Eclipse is always a key moment in astrology. The Solar Eclipse in Gemini on June 10th, 2021, is the second to last in this cycle of eclipses across the Gemini / Sagittarius axis. Over the last year, we have learned a huge amount about the difference between ‘facts’ and ‘truth’, which is essentially what this axis symbolizes in astrology.
Solar Eclipses occur when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction, astrologically speaking – it is a New Moon, but a very special one, where the Sun and Moon line up just right so that the Moon eclipses, fully or partially, the light of the Sun.
Most Solar Eclipses bring drama, and that drama re-occurs in 18-19 year cycles – the last time an eclipse cycle was underway across the Gemini / Sagittarius axis was in late 2001-2003 – so think back to what was going on in your life at that time, and relate it to any significant events which occur around the time of this Solar Eclipse.
With the Sun eclipsed in Gemini, we may see a momentary blackout of truth – but whose truth? If the last twelve months have taught us anything, it’s that different people can have radically different ideas over what constitutes a ‘fact’. During the eclipse and in the days following, it’s very important to hold fast to your own truth, but to also understand and appreciate that your truth may not necessarily represent all of the cold, hard facts.
This eclipse is likely to stir up a lot of restless energy too, so don’t be surprised if you are very easily distracted or if you feel trapped but can’t quite put your finger on why. Gemini and Sagittarius are both mutable signs in astrology, representing change, adaptation, motion and fluidity. Identity politics could also be a big issue during this Solar Eclipse, perhaps with big news around one or two key individuals and how they may identify themselves going forward.
How Does this Solar Eclipse in Gemini Affect Each Zodiac Sign?
Each Sun Sign will experience the Gemini Solar Eclipse slightly differently, with the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces most strongly affected. All signs will be searching for the ‘truth’, however, and may experience dramatic lightbulb moments of shock or awe around this theme.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
Expect an urge to learn more, whether via new qualifications or training or simply by informally doing your own research. You sense that you are lacking some key knowledge and you want to fix that. Shockwaves locally may prompt a big decision about who you choose to associate with, but again, information is vital. Be sure of the facts before you make any life-changing decisions, because all is not as it seems.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
This Solar Eclipse hits your money zone and could herald a small financial or material crisis or shock. Stay calm. You may be shaken out of your comfort zone, but there is a higher purpose here and this experience has much to teach you. Prepare by budgeting better or tightening your belt. Understand that abundance can be found in so much more than money. Look at and be grateful for your many blessings.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
A new you is emerging from this Solar Eclipse in your own sign – but you may experience birthing pains, astrologically speaking, during the process. It’s not easy shedding a skin you’ve lived in for so long, and you are allowed to find it emotional. Be your authentic self in all things, even when it hurts. It’s time now to stop hiding your light, hiding your identity or hiding your purpose. Stand up and own your destiny, even if – especially if – it scares you.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
With this Solar Eclipse activating your spiritual zone, you can expect some weird dreams, strange coincidences or odd, unsettling vibes around you. The universe is trying to tell you something, but will you listen, or will you dismiss the signs you’re experiencing? In your everyday life, something that was hidden from you may suddenly be revealed and, like any secret, this revelation may be a shock at first.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)
During this Solar Eclipse, you may feel driven to take a leadership role within your social life or your friendship networks – however, others may not be ready to hear what you have to say, so expect to be challenged over your beliefs, your principles or your ideals. Some of this may turn quite hostile at times, so you will need to be prepared to stand your ground. Don’t rule out finding a new tribe altogether, as you may have outgrown your current company.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
This Solar Eclipse is all about authority and your attitude towards it, whether you wield it yourself or are subject to someone else’s. The most likely arena for any drama in this regard is in your career – look out for sudden promotions, demotions or scandals, and be prepared to roll with any punches. Shocks may be on the way, but they are clearing your path so that you can move forward. What may feel like a disaster is actually an open door.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
Are you ready to leave your comfort zone? The Solar Eclipse offers an adventure of a lifetime, but only to those brave enough to grab the opportunity. This energy is all about being ready to say yes, especially where you would previously have said no. It’s about trust, faith and philosophy, and about expanding your awareness of life. Sudden events may cause a big change of heart for you – trust your initial instincts regarding which way to head.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
This Solar Eclipse activates one of the most psychologically and spiritually complex areas of your astrological chart, which tends to be an uncomfortable experience. There could be drama around a controlling relationship, an illicit affair, an emotional debt, or a major life transition. Fear may be your over-riding emotion at times – reach out for help and comfort from those who love you the most. You will survive; this is a necessary part of your spiritual growth.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
Expect restlessness in your closest relationship when this Solar Eclipse hits your astrological love zone. Much soul-searching and questioning need to be done, Sagittarius, but that is a healthy thing in a loving partnership. Ask the questions you need answers to, and truly listen to the answers. You will be able to preserve what you want to preserve – indeed, it will grow stronger – but you must first be totally honest about where you are.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
This Solar Eclipse in your health zone may be a wake-up call, Capricorn, urging you to take better care of your whole self, not just your physical health. If you have neglected your mental or spiritual health, events now may shake or shock you – but you have time to heal and you are being given every opportunity to put things right. Take a long, hard look at how you are treating yourself, or how you are allowing others to treat you.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
The Solar Eclipse in your creative zone is a cry for recognition. You want to be heard and you want to be noticed, and the best way to achieve this is to embrace your individuality. Stop trying to fit in. You don’t. You can’t. You shouldn’t. Use this energy to explore your creative gifts and to joyfully proclaim who you truly are. If other people don’t like it, there could be some drama, but overall, you hold all the cards.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
A crisis at home may jolt you back to your senses during this Solar Eclipse, which could shake the foundations on which you’ve built your life. Don’t panic or overreact but do take it as the wake-up call it is. Turn your attention towards securing the people you love the most, followed by whatever intangible things make you feel loved, secure and safe. You need strong roots, so if you have been neglecting them, now is the time to remedy that.
