New Moon in Gemini – Annular Solar Eclipse June 10, 2021
The New Moon on June 10, 2021 is a Annular Solar Eclipse at 19°47′ Gemini – often referred to as a “ring of fire” – that will happen before Midsummer on June 20th in the Northern Hemisphere.
During the eclipse, the Moon’s apparent diameter will be smaller than the Sun’s, so it will block most of the Sun’s light and cause the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). The annular eclipse will be visible from parts of northeastern Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean (passing over the North Pole) and the Russian Far East, whilst the eclipse will appear partial from a region thousands of miles wide, which includes northern and eastern North America, most of Europe, and northern Asia.
As its name suggests, the ring of fire is easily the most exciting of the different varieties of an eclipse. Annular eclipses happen when the Moon is farthest from Earth. Because the Moon is so distant from Earth, it seems much smaller and does not block the entire view of the Sun. Instead, the Moon darkens the skies when it covers the Sun’s center, leaving the Sun’s visible outer edges to form a ring, or annulus, around the Moon. The ring of fire marks the maximum stage of an annular solar eclipse. Solar eclipses happen when the New Moon casts a shadow on Earth.
The Meaning of the New Moon
According to traditional sources, the New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. Archetypally, the New Moon represents:
- The Gnostic Marriage of Sol (the Sun) and Lunar (the Moon) – the alchemical marriage of male and female
- The Greek goddess Hestia (Vesta) – the crackling blaze of the hearth in the home
- The fetus in the womb (Moon) waiting to be born into a new life (Sun).
The New Moon symbolically signifies the interplay of instinct (Moon) and ego (Sun), of soul (Moon) and spirit, yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) principles, Mother (Moon) and Father (Sun) or Man (Sun) and Woman (Moon), and existence (Moon) and meaning (Sun).
The New Moon is often viewed as a symbol of both endings and new beginnings. The nighttime darkness of the New Moon symbolizes the mysterious watery depth of the unconscious – the transpersonal realm where personal identity and individual boundaries dissolve and the sense of direction and ego are lost for the purpose of cleansing away the past in order to prepare the way for the future.
Traditionally, the New Moon is a most propitious time to bring one’s personal life and intentions to greater clarity and prominence as it represents a reset and new beginning of a person’s inner life. Therefore, it correlates with an upsurge of energy or intuition of some opportunity such as making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or launching a new project and initiative. It also correlates with inner healing, where two opposing parts of oneself have come together to some inner resolution.
The Meaning of the Solar Eclipse
A Solar Eclipse is like a regular New Moon (where the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude); however, the difference is that the Earth is engulfed in a shadow cast by the Moon which fully or partially blocks the Sun. Therefore, a Solar Eclipse is considered more significant because Moon obscures the Sun. Also, because Solar Eclipse is rare because the timing of the New Moon within the eclipse season needs to be more exact for an alignment between the observer (on Earth) and the centers of both the Sun and the Moon.
Although an eclipse is a natural phenomenon, in ancient cultures, solar eclipses were attributed to supernatural causes or regarded as significant omens that signify the advent of change and divine revelation from the gods. Ancient astrologers considered eclipses (along with the appearance of comets) omens of notable births, deaths, military battles, or other significant events throughout history in many civilizations.
For example, according to the Greek historian Herodotus, the Total Solar Eclipse on May 28, 585 B.C.E, that was accurately predicted by the Greek mathematician and astrologer Thales of Miletus was interpreted as an omen that interrupted a battle in a long-standing six-year war between the Median Kingdom and the Lydian Kingdom along the Halys River (modern Kızılırmak River, Turkey). During the onset of the eclipse (between 5:55 pm – 6:15 pm LMT), the fighting immediately stopped, and the two kingdoms agreed to a truce.
Eclipses can also mark dramatic changes in the phase of one’s life, coinciding with events of initiation or termination. There can be a sharp dramatic unexpected change in one’s financial status, prestige, and fortune. Eclipses can also force an issue something that has reached a major impasse or blockage, often through some type of unexpected disruptive force or development.
According to 20th Century American astrologer Charles Jayne, events seven to ten days leading up to an eclipse are notable and significant where affairs often take a radical turn that is not anticipated. The force of destiny is more prominent during this period, with an increase in the tempo of events as developments unfold.
Solar eclipses can often invoke an existential crisis that causes a radical reframing of the values and unquestioned beliefs of a individual, society, or nation. For the world is often swept up in unexpected new developments and can often invoke a collective “wake-up” event to occur that shakes the collective cognitive dissonance of the reality of a situation. Eclipses often serve as red flag indicators summon a long-overdue crisis that “tests” a nation’s leadership and vision that often that invokes changes and reforms.
On a personal level, personal awareness begins to increase near eclipses along with the increased tempo of outer activity and developments as the force of destiny is more prominent during this period.
Eclipses often serve as warning signals that there are certain factors are in the offing that one is not aware of, and nearly impossible to detect in advance, that will likely emerge most unexpectedly at the most inopportune time. Therefore, decisions made leading up to an eclipse do not have the desired results often resulting have unpredictable outcomes, that dramatically change the focus of narrative.
Also, love affairs and romances that begin and end abruptly in a most dramatic way during eclipses.
If midlife transits are operative at the time of an eclipse, they can trigger an existential crisis that begins a radical reframing of one’s values and unquestioned beliefs and assumptions.
The Saros Cycle
The June 10, 2021, the Annular Solar Eclipse is a member of Saros Cycle 147. The Saros Cycle 147 series started with a partial solar eclipse on October 12, 1624. It has annular eclipses from May 31, 2003, to July 31, 2706. There are no total eclipses in this series. The series ends at member 80 as a partial eclipse on February 24, 3049. The longest annular eclipse will be on November 21, 2291, at 9 minutes and 41 seconds.
The 54-year Saros Cycle is an important cycle to consider when evaluating eclipses. In each Saros cycle, the shadow of the eclipse moves westward on the surface of the earth by 120 degrees with every eclipse. After 3 eclipses in the same cycle, the shadow of the eclipse has moved 360 degrees and is visible from the same place on earth. This cycle tends to re-energize events from that previous era after 54 years.
Based on the table above, the June 10, 2021, Annular Solar Eclipses relates to events of 1967. In 1967 we saw the powerful resurgence of inflation – part of the effect to fund the Vietnam War.

1967 Eclipse Events —> 2021 Eclipse Events
Based on the historical events of 1967 mentioned above, we see the re-articulation of many of the same themes of high geopolitical tensions, and political animosity and turmoil will be the order of the day. However, we continue to see a renewed interest in the manned space program to begin to build a large-scale base on the Moon in 2024, and a planned manned Mars Expedition by 2029.
We will likely see the emergence of an adversarial space race for dominance between the United States and China-Russia.
In China, we can expect political extremism, military diplomacy, and cowboy diplomacy, with a collective impulse toward hardened, ruthless ambitions, or extreme coercive means to emerge in China. A brewing Cold War turning hot, between the U.S. and China, inconceivable just a decade ago, will become a regular topic of conversation in 2021.
In Europe and the United Kingdom, we will see a widening societal and class divisions due to growing economic inequality resulting in large-scale protests and riots in Western Europe.
In the United States, we will continue to see the Deep State, a clandestine group, whose members control foreign policies, diplomacy, military issues, and international spying agencies called “intelligence agencies” — for the purpose of extending the American empire — will continue to intensify its operations to engineer and implement the “Great Reset” initiative to transform of the financial system to create a system of global governance.
According to astrologer 20th Century Canadian astrologer Edmond Johndro stated that everything that occurs 8 weeks prior to a Solar Eclipse is OWNED by that that Eclipse with developments culminating 6 months after the phenomena. Meaning the eclipse will act as a trigger to a set of larger archetypal narrative of the Saturn-Uranus square alignment throughout the remainder of 2021.
