Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde are currently overlapping during Gemini season, and all the astrological chaos peaks on June 10 during the June 2021 new moon. This lunation is also a solar eclipse, which means it’s even more powerful than a regular new moon — and the changes it heralds in will hit us even faster and harder than usual. Eclipses almost always bring about sudden new beginnings and twists in our path, but for the zodiac signs most affected by the June 2021 new moon eclipse, things might feel even more intense.
During this lunation, the sun and moon will align in the air sign of Gemini (one of the most communication-focused signs of the zodiac), which inspires us to get more inquisitive about our lives and the world around us. Right now, we’re asking questions and refusing to let details slide in hopes of gaining a better understand of ourselves. This curious and mentally-focused energy is emphasized further by the fact that the new moon eclipse is forming a conjunction aspect with Mercury retrograde — an alignment that encourages us to spend time reviewing and revising our plans before moving forward. The dramatic planetary weather is likely to make it hard to make clear sense of everything that’s happening, so trust your intuition and pay attention to all the new information that’s surfacing before making any major decisions.
Gemini is one of the mutable zodiac signs, and with the eclipse taking place here, it’s activating a lot of sensitive and significant life changes for the rest of the mutable signs, too. If you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the June 2021 new moon eclipse, get ready.
