We are now in Gemini, the sign of twins, and the first full moon of the year is in Virgo, a sign that represents the perfection of the universe. The full moon in Virgo, which is exactly on the cusp of the second month of the year, is also aligned with the sun in the zodiac sign of Gemini, the sign of twins. This means that the moon is only 4° off the sun, and will be closest to the earth at 15:02 UTC on July 15th.
The New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up, creating a visual effect known as an ‘annular solar eclipse’. It is mostly visible across the central part of the world, where the sun is below the horizon, and the moon is directly below the location of the Sun. Annular solar eclipses are rarer than total solar eclipses, occurring only a few times in a year.
The New Moon in the Gemini sign on June 13th, 2018 is the last one of the three celestial alignments that will make up a New Moon, so it’s a great time to start a new project! If you’re new to astrology, here’s a rundown of the three alignments.
On the 10th. In June 2023, we get a powerful new moon and an annular eclipse in Gemini. It’s an eclipse of the North Lunar Node. Unlike Southern Lunar Eclipses, Northern Lunar Eclipses are associated with the future. Something new happens and changes the trajectory of our destiny. Northern Lunar Eclipses take us out of our comfort zone, but they also open up opportunities for those who are willing to take advantage of them. When the North Lunar Node is eclipsed, we create new karma.
Nothing special happens, because solar eclipses, like new moons, are pretty commonplace. However, if we were to closely follow the major turning points in our lives, we would probably discover that they occurred during a solar eclipse. This is no ordinary eclipse. This is an annular solar eclipse. In an annular eclipse, the lunar disk completely covers the sun, just as in a total eclipse, but because the moon is a little farther from the earth than normal, a ring forms around the edge of the moon, similar to a ring of fire or halo.
The halo has a deep spiritual meaning and symbolizes resurrection or the idea that the sacred and divine (light) cannot be overcome by darkness.
What are the differences between annular eclipses?
To better understand the annular eclipse, let’s go back to the anatomy of the new moon and the eclipse. Normally, the Sun and the Moon are of equal size (as seen from Earth, of course). Eclipses are therefore possible. A solar eclipse always takes place on New Moon, when the sun and moon are in the same area of the sky. The moon is invisible during the new moon because it is so close to the sun that we simply cannot see it. The sun is obscuring it. The new moon has a solar, or yang, energy.
Therefore, new moons are associated with new beginnings (YANG energy is associated with new beginnings) and full moons are associated with climaxes (YIN energy makes events happen and gives the impression of destiny). And the eclipse? A solar eclipse is a special new moon. Yes, the sun and moon are always connected, they are always in the same area of the sky. The moon must be invisible because it is eclipsed by the sun, right? However, since the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth are in a straight line and the Moon is between the Sun and the Earth, the Moon eclipses the solar disk. What should be day becomes night.
What should have been a victory of light becomes a victory of fate. The moon eclipses the sun – that’s why they say eclipses are fatal. A solar eclipse is an important new beginning, something that happens to us that can present itself as an opportunity or a requirement to adapt to a new situation. Finally, let’s talk about annular eclipses (our Gemini eclipse is an annular eclipse). An annular eclipse is a total solar eclipse with a special feature. The sun, moon and earth are exactly on the same line as during a total solar eclipse.
IMPORTANT! Because the moon is slightly further from the earth than usual, it does not have the time to completely cover the solar disk. Because it is slightly smaller, it creates a ring of fire or a halo effect. You can still see the sun’s disk. We know the sun is always there. Light is not defeated by darkness. And in the fruitful union of the sun and the moon, something special, something divine is created. Annular or halo eclipses are windows to the divine.
Have you ever wondered why saints or important spiritual or religious figures are depicted with a halo around their heads? Draw attention to your message. The halo is the sign of a divine message, a very important message, a message not to be missed.
Solar Eclipse in Gemini – Mercury and Neptune retrograde
The eclipse is at 19° Gemini and in conjunction with Mercury retrograde. The solar eclipse in Gemini in conjunction with Mercury is very interesting because Mercury is the ruler of this eclipse. When the directional ruler is in conjunction with an eclipse, it is much more powerful because it is on the same frequency as the energy of that astrological season. Mercury retrograde will bring a deep spiritual message that will change us on a personality level.
The light may go out, but the trail of light that remains helps us discover what is otherwise invisible to the eye. In the heart of the sun, we are called to find answers in the information structure of our being. Mercury (or Hermes) is the only god who is able to travel to all worlds: heaven, earth and the underworld. Similarly, our mind can travel to the past, present and future, or to the superconscious, conscious and subconscious.
When Mercury is in conjunction with a solar eclipse, our consciousness is heightened. We now have the unique ability to communicate with different parts of our brain and with the brain of the universe, the brain of infinite possibilities. The most important aspect of the eclipse (besides the conjunction with Mercury) is the square with Neptune. Mercury-Neptune squares are generally known to be confusing. Mercury is a fact, what we can see with our eyes, what we can decipher with our senses.
Neptune represents all that we cannot see – our intuition, imagination and creativity. Mercury’s multiple sensory impressions come together to create something that did not exist before. Dreams are a good example of Neptune reorganizing existing information to create something new. Dreams can be confusing, we all know that. But dreams can also be instructive. What is not fully processed during the day appears at night to find new avenues for exploration and expression.
Dreams help us navigate through life and find new answers to old problems. Neptune rules the process of imagination. Many people say that fantasy is not real. Fantasy isn’t real, of course, but it doesn’t have to be. Imagination creates possibilities. Once this new mental image is created, we can take it further and materialize it in the real world. But first we need that mental opportunity from Neptune. Neptune also helps to untangle what is otherwise difficult to untangle. Let’s take the example of dreams again.
We have millions of thoughts and mental impressions throughout the day. If you don’t sleep, you go crazy and you have no gray matter left. When we sleep, thoughts and mental impressions that are not necessary or relevant are removed or moved to the basement of our psyche (these days we move them to the cloud). We can call them whenever we need them. But there’s no reason to keep it in our RAM right now. Who decides what is important and what should be archived? Neptune. Neptune is the highest octave of Venus. Venus is what is important to us on a personal level.
Neptune represents what matters to us in the context of the world we live in – on a meta-level. imagination – creating new possibilities – and dissolving what is no longer needed are two important functions of Neptune.
In this eclipse in Gemini with Mercury and Neptune Taste:
- Ask Neptune to dissolve what you no longer need, but also invite him to create new opportunities for you.
- Listen to what Mercury retrograde has to say. It’s not like you haven’t heard it before. But this time you may discover new nuances and deeper meanings.
- Finally, let the union of Sun and Moon lead you to that part of yourself that you need to redefine and recreate. You are the result of billions of years of evolution, but you are not your past. Like the planets and galaxies, you are in constant motion and evolution.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will the solar eclipse affect Gemini?
The year is 2017, and on August 21st, a total solar eclipse will be visible in a large part of the United States. This event is known as a “solar eclipse,” and it occurs when the moon passes between the earth and sun to block off the light of the sun from reaching the earth. The moon’s orbit is elliptical, and it sometimes comes close to the earth, which means that the moon is sometimes directly in the path of the earth shadow cast by the sun.
The first of two solar eclipses in the first half of 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. The eclipse will only be visible in the U.S. for about seven minutes as it dips in and out of view during the course of a day. (The United States is the only part of the world where the eclipse will occur during daytime hours.) The first eclipse of the year, this will be the first total solar eclipse to cross the continent since February 1979, when only part of the country got to see the full event. The last time the nation experienced a total eclipse in 2017 will be June 20, 2017.
Is Solar Eclipse good for Gemini?
In a rare event, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the entire United States on August 21, 2017. This is the first time since 1979 that a total solar eclipse will be visible nationwide in the US. The total solar eclipse is only visible from the US, but is visible at totality (when the Sun is completely covered) in parts of the Pacific, Australia, and Antarctica.
For those with a birthdate between August 22, 1946 and August 21, 1949 this is considered a ‘Gemini eclipse’ because it will be visible during the sign of Gemini. This is a very exciting time for everyone born between the 1st of August and the 9th of August, for it marks the end of the Cancer/Gemini/Pisces and the beginning of the Leo/Aries/Aries cycle. It’s fascinating to observe how our lives are often linked to the phases of the Moon, and how it’s important to keep track of the Moon’s phases in order to understand our life and daily activities.
What relationship does a new moon have with a solar eclipse?
It is generally accepted that the new moon and the solar eclipse are linked. The new moon is a fact that can be easily verified; however, the solar eclipse is only possible during a new moon. The science behind the solar eclipse and new moon is the subject of much research and is still not fully understood.
The two solar eclipses on June 8 were just two of the many amazing celestial events we saw this year. One of the most closely watched was the “annular” solar eclipse, which is visible from parts of the Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, and Antarctica. While it won’t be visible in the United States (or most of the rest of the world) until the early morning hours, it’s still an awesome sight. Here’s what you need to know about this unusual event.
