The New Moon in Gemini will occur at 5:03 pm Eastern (9:03 pm GMT) June 1, 2011, at 11 degrees of Gemini. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth. This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Gemini) will highlight the Gemini qualities of versatility and intelligence, as well as third house themes (communications and family relationships). The closest aspect is a trine between the New Moon in Gemini and Saturn in Libra, which offers stability without being too confining (which is especially welcome after the powerful, transformative energy we’ve felt over the past month).
This New Moon in Gemini is also the first of three eclipses (this one being a partial solar eclipse) that occur in June and July. The next is a total lunar eclipse that occurs with the Full Moon in Sagittarius that occurs on June 15, followed by another partial solar eclipse with the New Moon in Cancer on July 1 (exactly one month from the partial solar eclipse occurring tomorrow). Tomorrow’s solar eclipse will be a so-called “midnight” eclipse, since it will be visible above the Arctic Circle during mid-summer (during which the sun never fully sets) around midnight. The eclipse begins at dawn on June 2 in northern China and Siberia, moves across the Arctic (where it crosses the International Date Line), and ends in the early evening of June 1 in northeastern Canada.
While eclipses tend to bring abrupt change, these changes look to be positive, and are tempered by the stability offered by the Saturn in Libra. Combining the renewing/restarting energy of the Gemini New Moon and that of the solar eclipse, perhaps now is the time to revamp your job description or your approach to your communications. Taking these steps could bring more stability in the long run, even if the changes seem scary now.
The June 15 total lunar eclipse will be visible for millions across Africa, the Middle East, southwestern Asia, and in parts of South America, Europe, eastern Asia, and Australia, but it will not be visible anywhere in North America.
The July 1 partial solar eclipse will not be seen by anyone. It occurs in the Antarctic (where it is winter and the sun remains below the horizon); the only place the eclipse will clear the horizon will be a small area of the Southern Ocean.
