Eclipses have been a source of fascination for centuries. Our ancestors feared them, and some of my clients still have some anxiety about Eclipses, although I always assure them that Eclipses are not an Astrological event to fear. In fact, if it’s a Solar Eclipse (New Moon), you should take advantage of the energies to manifest your desires and dreams in love! This is definitely the case with the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini.
This year, we will have four eclipses, including the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini. As with all Eclipses, this year’s Eclipses come in pairs. This Solar Eclipse in Gemini is paired with May 26’s Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, during which the Sun in Gemini shined its light on the opposing Moon in Sagittarius.
This time around, the Sun is merging with the Moon in Gemini, inviting us all to a new beginning. The Universe is offering us a clean slate to work on.
The 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini occurs on June 10, 2021, depending on where you are in the world. The precise time for this Eclipse event is on 10:43 BST (GMT).

How Make The Best Out Of The Intense 2021 Solar Eclipse In Gemini Energy
New Moons are always a good time to start something new. I always advise my clients to “plant their seeds” during the New Moon. Of course, as a Relationship Astrologer, I always tell my clients we can’t “plan” a relationship. However, any new relationship initiated during a New Moon will benefit from its energies. So, pay attention to what happens. Take note of who you meet for the first time, or if a friendship blossoms into something more.
While everybody can take advantage of the positive energy surrounding New Moons in a similar way, each soul can also experience and benefit from the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini differently. These differences are based on your own Astrological placements.
The Astrological Energies Of The 2021 Solar Eclipse In Gemini
It is very important for you to remember that while the Solar Eclipse in Gemini is a major Astrological event, no celestial event happens in vacuum.
While it may be the “Star” of the show, the Moon and the Sun in conjunction are still surrounded by other planets. Some of these planets will ‘interact’ with the Sun and the Moon in what is called an Astrological “aspect.” Some key aspects to note during this 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini include:
The Sun and Moon conjuncting a Retrograding Mercury in its home sign of Gemini:
Sometimes the Mercury Retrograde will bring back people from the past back into our lives. This year, Mercury is retrograding in the sign of Gemini. Gemini is the sign of your local community, your neighborhood, short-distance travel, siblings, cousins, transport, and early education.
If you are in a long-distance relationship, this could mean your partner may relocate be closer to you. An old friend from school reconnects with you as an adult, and you find yourself attracted to them. Or you could meet a potential love interest through your cousins or siblings.
This could also mean the return of an ex. Depending on how you feel about your ex, this could be a good thing or a bad thing.
Whatever the case may be, remember that New Moons are the start of a new beginning. Maybe you finally set boundaries with your ex, if you no longer wish to be in contact with them. On the other hand, if you still care about them, you could give the relationship a second chance.
Now, because the Sun, Moon, and Mercury are all in Gemini, you will want to talk and socialize—be it in person, or online if you are still under quarantine in your area. Gemini energy carries with it a lot of humorous energy! You could bond with your partner over jokes or meet someone who shares your sense of humor.
However, keep in mind that Mercury is in Retrograde! Be mindful that not everybody will understand your humor. Or a well-meaning ribbing could be misinterpreted.
The North Node is in the same Sign (Gemini) as Sun, Moon, and Mercury—all trining Saturn in Aquarius:
Whatever new beginning occurs during this 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini, it will feel “fated,” thanks to the North Node.
Since Gemini is the sign of the twins, you could feel as though you have met your soul’s “twin.” Not only will it feel fated, the trine to Saturn indicates a relationship with the potential to last. Saturn is the planet of commitment and it gives a “lasting power” to whatever it touches. Saturn is like a “glue” for relationships.
But please also note that Uranus in Taurus is also squaring Saturn in Aquarius, warning you against taking rash decisions! Don’t rush into new relationships. And more importantly, don’t force your partner into making a commitment too soon (this is for your own good).
Remember, Uranus can be a little unpredictable. So even if you believe you are fated, please let Divine Timing lead the way. You will thank yourself later!
Remember that commitments will always involve responsibilities, getting to know each other first will prevent your relationship from becoming a burden to both you and your partner.
The Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces:
Every Zodiac sign has its light (positive) and shadow (negative) side. The negative side of Gemini energy is that it can, unfortunately, be a bit of a flaky, flighty, slightly unreliable energy. It can also be easily distracted. For example, when dating a Gemini man, you may be worried he date more than one person simultaneously. But here’s what you have to remember: Gemini is the sign of open communication.
If you are concerned about your partner dating other people while dating you, just ask. Ask openly, be direct. Ask your partner the status of your relationship: Are you exclusive, or is this an open relationship? Where is this relationship headed?
This Stellium in Mercury encourages it! In fact, if your relationship has been plagued with indirect or poor communication, this New Moon and 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini is the perfect moment to revamp the way you communicate with your partner.
Especially since Neptune being in its home sign in Pisces can exacerbate these worries and paranoias! Neptunian energy is very creative and imaginative energy. But be sure that you aren’t creating worst-case scenarios in your mind leading to overthinking and worrying.
Having clear-cut and honest communications is the key to clearing up this Neptunian haze. Make sure you are not just seeing what you want to see or fearing things that aren’t there.
Not to mention ‘square’ aspects in Astrology usually concern battles between you and yourself, and not an outside force. This is a time to make sure you have reality checks with yourself. Avoid worrying yourself sick over imaginary problems!
One of the best things about Astrology is that it teaches us to not take things personally. Recognize that the Neptune Pisces square will impact you, as it will impact all of us.
What To Expect From The 2021 Solar Eclipse In Gemini Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Here are the ways that the energies of the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini may affect your life:
If You’re Single: Patience is the key here! You might be sick of being single, and you could be going on dating sites “casting a wider your net,” so to speak. The advice here is to maintain high standards. Also, with all the Astrological activity happening in Gemini at the moment, you could find someone from nearby. Perhaps a neighbor, someone living in the same apartment building. Since the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini is a New Moon, a new attractive neighbor could have just moved in.
If You’re In A Relationship: Since we’re in Mercury Retrograde, be mindful that people from your past (or your partner’s past) could return into your lives. The Gemini energy could make you a little suspicious of people’s motives. Don’t fall into this trap. Rather than worry about exes or a past experience, have open, cool-headed conversations. This will prevent miscommunications and assumptions. These conversations might actually strengthen your bond with your partner!
If You’re Single: During this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, Taureans may have to face an issue of self-worth. Remember that Gemini rules the media, including social media. Oftentimes, the media or social media will impact the way we feel about ourselves. This New Moon may help you regain that self-confidence lost due to something you saw in the media, or a traumatic interaction you’ve had on social media (including dating sites). Your newfound confidence will make you more attractive. The way a confident person carries themselves tends to do that!
If You’re In A Relationship: If finances and values have been an issue in your relationship in the past, the Solar Eclipse in Gemini encourages you to have a deep and thorough discussion about this topic. Because Eclipses are a heightened, more intense version of a usual New Moon, you could do a major restructuring of your household management. If run a stressful family business together as a couple, you could start and implement a new system that will improve the way your business is run. Which in turn, will improve your relationship.
If You’re Single: The Sun, the Moon, Mercury, in the North Node are all in your sign. Despite being in retrograde, Mercury is perfectly at home with you right now. Some form of communication that happens in your life during this period will feel fated. Everything will feel extremely “meant to be,” and you could easily fall into the trap of the Neptunian energy in the air. Sure, this new person in your life may have been fated to meet you, but it is also important for you to get to know them better. Nobody is perfect and keep rose-colored glasses off. Even if it’s not meant to be, you were meant to learn a life lesson from this experience.
If You’re In A Relationship: The Solar Eclipse in Gemini is a time of intellectual pursuits, mental energy, as well as learning (and relearning). Relearning something can be extremely refreshing. You could be pleasantly surprised to learn that you were wrong about something or someone. Rather than being disillusioned, you will find their honesty refreshing. especially if they have a sense of humor about it! Perhaps you thought your partner had a negative trait, but it turns out they were just misunderstood. As a Gemini, you could actually find your partners newly revealed shortcomings or secret hobby intriguing.
If You’re Single: Venus just entered your sign on June 2nd, as did Mars. Lucky you, having both the planets of love and sex during while the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini is happening! You are especially attractive (and alluring) during this New Moon, as those around you will find your Cancer traits especially magnetic. Venus trines Jupiter, which will make you lucky in love. Don’t miss this chance to make a move. With Venus sextiling Uranus, meeting someone new might come unexpectedly.
If You’re In A Relationship: Whether or not you are in quarantine in your country, you and your partner will truly bond while staying at home. With Mars in your sign trining Uranus in Taurus, you could try new and exciting things in bed with your partner. If you and your partner aren’t staying home, you can venture out to try something novel, such as a new unique restaurant or comedy club in your town.
If You’re Single: The 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini will have you focusing on how you present yourself in love, in particular how you communicate. While Leos can often to be accused of being “vain,” this isn’t a matter vanity at all. Perhaps this could translate to you learning more about your Love Language. Avoid giving being “TMI” (giving out too much information) too soon in a new relationship, remember: Mercury is still in Retrograde.
If You’re In A Relationship: As with your single counterparts, you’ll be focused on a combination of your “public face”, communication, and privacy. Be extra mindful what information you put out there regarding your relationship. Particularly on social media—don’t overshare. Avoid venting about your personal relationship problems with those you’re not sure you can trust. Rumors could spread like wildfire. Combined with the Mercury Retrograde, the rumor could be twisted far beyond the truth. You would do yourself a favor by preventing it in the first place! During this New Moon, plant good seeds instead.
If You’re Single: For singles Virgos, during the Solar Eclipse in Gemini, you may be attracted to somebody who is traditional yet driven. (Perhaps a Capricorn?) Somebody might be attracted to your more pragmatic and grounded Earth sign qualities. Because Mercury is in retrograde during this New Moon, you could feel a bit nervous about communicating with this person in fear of making the wrong impression. Because the North Node is conjuncting the New Moon in Gemini, you may feel as though a person you meet can be your “partner in crime,” especially if you discover that they have the same career goals as you do. This could be the beginning of a power couple!
If You’re In A Relationship: The strong Saturnian energy aspecting this Solar Eclipse in Gemini might have you itching to go to the next level. This could be anything from dating to getting engaged, from engagement to marriage, or from marriage to committing to a mortgage. Do not rush it! Use the newness of the New Moon to set intentions and make plans, but don’t sign any contracts to purchase a family home. There are things that the Neptunian energy may be hiding, so it’s best to wait it out a little bit. So many couples end in divorce due to financial issues, it’s best to play it safe.
If You’re Single: This Solar Eclipse in Gemini could be craving excitement and a new experience. There is intense energy in Gemini’s realm (local community, your childhood education, and upbringing). As much as you want to explore people who are different from what you’ve experienced in the past, the New Moon and retrograde Mercury in Gemini ask you to understand yourself (and what’s acceptable to you) first. At the moment, you may romanticize situations like long-distance relationships and the idea forbidden loves, but Saturn wants to remind you that they can be quite difficult to handle emotionally.
If You’re In A Relationship: During this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, you and your partner might decide to do something based on a shared belief, common interest, or a higher purpose. For example, you and your partner may decide to set-up a non-profit foundation to help disadvantaged groups. Since the New Moon is in Gemini, which rules your local community, you could volunteer for your local community. This experience will help you bond closer as a couple. And with the North Node near the New Moon in the skies, you feel like this why you met!
If You’re Single: A new love interest you meet during this Solar Eclipse in Gemini could be extremely intense. You could have deep discussions about taboo subjects. Naturally, these are attractive to Scorpios. However, remember that the general Astrological weather warns us not to rush into things. Are things between you and your new love interest going too fast, too soon? Communicate clearly, and don’t be afraid to be direct. Is your exciting-but-mysterious new love interest rushing because they’re just as passionate as you are? Are they “living fast” because you are just a summer fling for them? Does this person appear to have a tendency to be obsessive or stalkerish? Or, worse: Does this person seem perfect, because they’ve love-bombed you? If anyone can cut through a Neptunian illusion and get to the bottom of the truth, it’s you, Scorpio.
If You’re In A Relationship: For those of you coupled Scorpios, you could discover how important words are to your relationship. Unlike other signs who are casually chattier than usual during this New Moon, there is a depth to this importance of words in your relationship. You could realize how your cutting words (or your partner’s insensitive words) have negatively impacted your relationship. On the other hand, you both could explore the ways in which words can spice up your sex life. Perhaps talking, the use of certain words, helps you feel more sexually connected? Perhaps “words” are not your style at all, and you experiment with different styles of communication that help you feel more connected with one another.
If You’re Single: The focus of this Solar Eclipse in Gemini is your love life. Perhaps you bump into an old school friend you haven’t meant in ages while commuting (remember, Gemini rules transport). Or, you may receive a message fated to be part of your life. You may be somewhat skeptical of somebody you met serendipitously or randomly in a public place. However, if you give this relationship a chance, you could be surprised to find out that you have a lot more in common than you think. Give it a try! Don’t lose your temper if anyone makes an ignorant comment about your new love interest as during this time you will have no patience for judgmental types.
If You’re In A Relationship: You and your partner could suddenly realize you need to make some changes, in either your relationship or your living arrangement. This could be the moment when you realize the true impact of how the pandemic and quarantine has had on your lives. Which, naturally, in turn, impacts your relationships. Since Sagittarians love new experiences and travelling, this Gemini New Moon will reveal how being deprived of the experiences that Sagittarians love has lowered the quality of your relationship. For example, perhaps you and your partner used to bond through vacations you’d take together. Since the pandemic, the two of you find yourselves bickering while stuck at home. This New Moon could be the moment where you finally address these issues. Even if there’s not much you can do about it, the acknowledgement and understanding of what is happening will greatly help. Since Gemini is all about talking, perhaps a deep emotional conversation with your partner will at least temporarily heal this issue.
If You’re Single: Capricorns aren’t usually chatty, but during this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, you may very well be! Especially at the workplace. You could meet somebody on the job. You could even come to a realization that your ideal partner would be somebody who understands your profession. This could mean someone in your industry, person who understands the demands that come with your profession. As a career-driven person who prioritizes your work, this is important to you. With the North Node within such close proximity of this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, it may feel as if you are destined to be with somebody who truly understands how important your career is to you. But keep an open mind and don’t limit yourself in love.
If You’re In A Relationship: This Solar Eclipse in Gemini could be a moment where you and your partner could focus on health and wellness. Both of you could adopt a new healthy habit. Not just physical health, but also mental health. For example: You could go on a social media detox. Since the pandemic, many of us working from home may have felt a lack of life-work balance. For many couples out there—some of my own clients included—their personal relationships may have suffered. Perhaps this is the time where you finally decide to draw that line separating your personal life and your work life. And most importantly: respecting their relationship with your partner. Some of you may decide to adopt pets during this time.
If You’re Single: As an Aquarian, you’ve probably always had a unique approach to dating. You understand people differently, and you analyze your potential partners in ways that no other sign does. But during this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, a fellow Air sign, you might just decide to be less cerebral in your approach. This may come as a surprise to you, but you may want to go with the flow more and adopt your opposite sign, Leo’s, approach to dating. Or, you could be attracted to somebody with Leo traits. Your dates should be extra fun during this time. Even if you’re just video-calling.
If You’re In A Relationship: Like partnered Scorpios, this Solar Eclipse in Gemini could be an especially sexually-adventurous time for you. (If your partner is a Scorpio, you are in for a hot ride!) You could be discovering new things about yourself and your partner. Naturally, for Aquarians, the weirder the better! As you try these new things, it could feel as though you are back in your early dating days. Rediscovering is fun. New Moons are usually times of new beginnings, but in your case, this could be a time of renewing your passion for one another. Congratulations! In your case, Neptune’s creative, imaginative energy might serve your fantasies well. Feel free to indulge in them.
If You’re Single: For single Pisceans, this Solar Eclipse in Gemini could herald a new beginning in the home department. You could relocate to a new neighborhood, apartment building, or even a new town. As you explore your new local community or even during your commute, you could meet an interesting new somebody you just ‘click’ very well with. Thanks to all the new people you meet, from new potential love interests to Platonic friendships, you will feel that this move was meant to be. Indeed, many changes will happen in your home life as well. If you’re not moving, you could adopt a pet and meet somebody in a pet community. Redecorating your interior might also improve your wellbeing and confidence, which will make you feel more attractive.
If You’re In A Relationship: The Solar Eclipse in Gemini will see some interesting changes for you in the home or family front. Since the North Node and Saturn are involved in this particular New Moon, your partner could finally introduce you to the parents and invite you to meet the family. This is a major step-up in terms of commitment. During this time, female members of your partner’s family could play an important role in your relationship. If you’re already married, Venus and Mars in Cancer may see you and your partner becoming homebodies and preferring to stay in.
Something To Keep In Mind During The 2021 Solar Eclipse In Gemini
Since the 2021 Solar Eclipse in Gemini takes place during the Mercury Retrograde, keeping communication-related crystals near you will be beneficial. Gemini’s crystals are usually blue—Gemini’s color—and many tend to be connected to the Throat Chakra, aiding your self-expression. The Gemini crystals may include:
- Blue Lace Agate
- Blue Quartz
You can wear these blue-hued crystals as jewelry to remind yourself to be mindful of the way you speak during the Mercury retrograde. And remember: with Neptune in Pisces aspecting this Solar Eclipse in Gemini, remember to take off the rose-colored glasses.
If things get too overwhelming, you can redirect that imaginative, creative Neptunian energy to create an art project. Or you can indulge in a book or your favorite movie.
