A Solar Eclipse in Gemini opens up June 10th with a receptivity, reframe, and renewal on all things Gemini in our life. We need Gemini because of the common fears we experience when we hear or see “We need to talk.” Gemini as the sign of (commune)icaiton helps us - through it’s mutable air function - and inspires us to take more responsibility for our relationship to perception, word-choice, and active listening.
The Solar Eclipse is conjunct Mercury retrograde in Gemini. Which can't help but bring the past into the present. Solar Eclipses are New Moons yet Mercury Retrogrades illuminate something historical. Consider which patterns, habits, and automatic responses you're engaging in that don't serve the person you want to become.
It's also squaring Neptune in Pisces. Pisces is the water-body and Gemini is the mind-body. Perhaps this Solar Eclipse is asking to integrate, rather than alternate our mind-body and water-body. So that when you're instinctually feeling something physically, you're apt to speak it for greater self-acceptance and then clearer communication with those who need to hear what you're experiencing.
Talking to others is one of the most essential and sometimes dangerous things we can do. And yet so many of us haven’t received the training or onboarding for communication aptitude. Perhaps we even have the mental and emotional scars to prove it. Most of us look back at our lives regretting the moments we didn’t use our words carefully; when we needed to say, “I love you.” Or when we had to say “I’m sorry”. And so this Solar Eclipse in Gemini wants us to take an honest inventory on our linguistic lives.
And our relationship to perception. I mention perception; more specifically, “perception accuracy” here because our cognitive ability to identify data in our lives without necessarily ascribing meaning, projection, assumption, or conspiracy to it is an essential skill in today’s highly uncertain world. As human beings, our brains are hardwired to help us self-protect. And when we perceive data that gets us emotionally activated, it is likely that we will self protect by adding layers of guilt, skepticism, defensiveness, and contempt on top of the data.
When if we can fact-check the stories we tell ourselves for accuracy with the people we’re in conversation and agreement with, we’ll be operating with the highest Gemini integrity. That’s why I love how Dr. Brene Brown encourages us to begin vulnerable conversations - a Gemini ruled space! - with the sentence stem, “The story I’m telling myself is…” That way we lead with curiosity; not certainty. And the listener of our story feels included and valued. Not defensive and kicked out.
And so with the Solar Eclipse in Gemini, I want you to make a commitment towards proactively studying, applying, and continuing an approach to perception, verbal communication, and active listening in dialogue so that your conversations can be both uncomfortable and safe. So that you can say it as you see it; while listening carefully to understand the interior world of others.
Remember, Gemini is the sign of the twins and so inherent within its symbolism is the chance for us to regulate our objection to difference and connect across contrast with dialogue.
Read on for your Moonscope by checking both your Sun and Rising sign; and if anything else resonantes, take that in too. There’s no wrong way to get this information!
