This lunar cycle will guide the collective to think with its hands. Gemini, the masculine side of Mercury, enjoys communicating in different ways, especially when it involves writing or handcrafts. Mrgashirsha is friendly and cautious. It encourages keen awareness when it communicates.
The new moon rises late in the evening on 20 June and continues until the early morning on 21 June. Additionally, this is an annular solar eclipse seen in Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.
Gemini naturally rules the 3rd House, which is the area governing tone of speech, listening, learning, and working with the hands. Social media falls under this house as well. Gemini in Mrgashirsha will illuminate where the collective needs to be more aware of what is shared.
The sign shares the axis with Sagittarius, where beliefs, publishing, broadcasting, and foreign travel are governed. This eclipse could reveal something supportive or agitating associated with social media platforms, print media, music (lyrics mainly), scripted film and television, and the arts.
Interestingly enough, the latter part of the eclipse falls on Father’s Day (USA and Canada). Mercury rules the throat chakra; making something with the hands could carry more cache with father figures.
Historically, summer is observed as a time for creativity. It is also the longest day of the year (almost 15 and a half hours of sunlight in New York). We may feel a bit ungrounded because the Sun, moon, Rahu, and Mercury retrograde are all in airy Gemini. Balance the masculine energy by organizing thoughts (make a to-do list) and spending time in a garden or at the park. Nature is grounding when the mind feels cloudy.
