Do you have fresh memories of that full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius at the end of last month? Well, keep those events close as its companion new moon solar eclipse in Gemini arrives on June 10th and opens doors to things you absolutely want to put into motion. Gemini is a traveler - and not just physical travel. It's also communication and collaboration under restless energies. Gemini wants to move, dammit, and this month is about focusing that energy into planned, focused steps that you absolutely want to take as part of your working wishlist.
This new moon beckons the future and encourages that you put plans into place with gusto! The solar eclipse element only expands on this theme of things fresh and new: keep an eye out for new opportunities that manifest within the year when more culminating energies for 2021 come together and close the year.
Gemini, an Air sign, is also compatible with fiery Sagittarius of the last full moon. Air ignites or feeds fire and can even provide assertive and even explosive energy to those intentions set in May. What did you put into motion last month? What did the lunar eclipse reveal to you? You could have learned important truths and acquired valuable information that you needed to set proper course and establish a path forward. Lunar eclipses also eliminate or remove what no longer serves you and will not be beneficial to your future plans and goals.
So, this new moon solar eclipse on June 10th is precisely the permission for fresh starts and new opportunities that will see you through on your intentions through November of this year. Craft your yellow brick road to Emerald City carefully - but be bold and enterprising and wishful! Put energy into your planning! This Mercury Retrograde is very helpful in giving you some time in June (until the 22nd) to contemplate your next steps and lay down the framework to activate in July (which will be smoking by the way - more on that later!).
With Neptune and Pisces at play, check your facts. Double check them even given Mercury's backward movement. You have spidey senses? Listen but don't lean too hard into those feels: let the fog lift throughout the month and energies to move positively and in your favour.
Perhaps Madi Murphy, astrologer and co-founder of The Cosmic RX and The Cosmic Revolution perhaps says it best, "Change isn’t always comfortable, but it is healthy. Ditch the familiar, stay grounded in your truth, and make room in your head and your heart for a new way of being." Harness the positive forces in this eclipse and new moon as it can be dramatic.
Need a new moon meditation? Here is a great one from foreverconscious.com and is best done between June 10th and 19th:
You will need:
Energy Cleansing tool of choice (Eg. dried herb sticks, incense, bells, etc.)

Crystal of choice (choose whatever you feel drawn to)
1) Have all your ritual ingredients out in front of you and begin with cleansing your aura using the following method:
Take your cleansing tool of choice and start at the top of your head. As you cleanse the top of your body, recite the following:
“I seal in the good thoughts. I seal in the peace and calm that floods me now.”
As you cleanse the midsection of your body, recite the following:
“I seal in the love and creativity that is around me now. I activate my feelings of purpose.”
As you cleanse the lower part of your body and feet, recite the following:
“I am cleansed; all dense energy has now left my body. I am aligned. I am restored. I am energized.”
