Solar Eclipses signify both the start of a new cycle and the potential for change. There is a solar eclipse on Thursday, June 10th, 5:52 a.m. in 19° Gemini. Create an intention for the year ahead. Affirm that it come into your life in the most harmonious way.
With the eclipse in Gemini, there is a tremendous urge to communicate and be listened to. If you want to get the most out of this eclipse, listen, read and reflect carefully before you speak. You will be doing a "good deed" to listen to others and let them know they are heard. You don't have to agree but it will be helpful to refrain from appearing to be judgmental.
For your own self, try to share your ideas with those who will be supportive of your dreams, not those likely to squash them. This is a great time for brainstorming. Often people feel they are bursting with ideas at a Gemini eclipse. Write all these creative concepts and visions down. Like a dream these ideas will be ephemeral and you will lose them if you don't write them down. Then, wait a few weeks and look over the ideas with a clear eye for what is truly practical.
In the chart of the eclipse, Neptune is squared to the Moon, Sun and Mercury. This indicates mental fog and difficulty with decision-making. If you can put off a decision, do that. If you must make a decision, write down the pros and cons in order to approach it in the most logical way.
More on listening:
It can be really helpful to look to your horoscope to find out what kind of listener/communicator you are. In astrology, we most often look to the sign your Mercury is in. (You can get your horoscope calculated for free by going to alabe.com or astro.com or just Google "free horoscope calculations".)
Mercury in cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are impatient listeners. They want to get the highest priority information from you quickly, and get going to take action.
Mercury in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) are generally patient listeners but will need you to lay out your thoughts in an organized way, and especially Taurus will need you to slow down. It's harder for them to parse a 'mile a minute' speaker.
Mercury in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) love to hear new ideas and what is happening in your life but because they have many of their own thoughts swirling in their heads, they may not remember what you said later on.
Obviously these are generalizations and are modified by other planetary configurations in the natal horoscope. Just something to observe in your conversations with others over the next week.
