Eclipses are a time for drastic changes and renewals, which isn’t always a pleasant or enjoyable experience. In ancient times, astrologers noted that eclipses tended to coincide with some sort of natural disaster — think earthquakes, floods, and droughts — but nowadays, they tend to affect you more on a personal level. Eclipses may sound scary and daunting, but they actually happen about four times each year, so you’ve lived through dozens at this point. The signs that the eclipses take place in are important too because they point to the kinds of changes and upheavals you’ll be experiencing in your chart. They affect everyone in different ways, and according to your June 10, 2021, solar eclipse horoscope, these changes can vary wildly depending on your zodiac sign.
The area of your chart governed by Gemini and Sagittarius has been getting eclipsed since 2020, placing emphasis on communication, knowledge, and adaptability. Both of these signs are mutable, meaning that they’re all about change, and moving with the ebbs and flows of life. Solar eclipses take place when the moon gets between the Earth and the sun, blocking the sun’s rays from reaching us here on Earth. It’s similar to a new moon, so it tends to coincide with new beginnings, and in Gemini, these beginnings will have a strong communicative element to them.
The solar eclipse on June 10 will be taking place alongside Mercury, which is currently retrograde in the sign of Gemini. During this time, expect some possible miscommunication and frazzled emotions, since Mercury is the planet that this eclipse energy is essentially answering to. Be sure to also keep in mind that eclipses are a time for rest and renewal, and practicing magic or leaving crystals out in the moonlight (or lack thereof) isn’t recommended. If you’re interested in better understanding how exactly to work with this energy depending on your sign, however, you can find the answers below:
Aries: Communication And Knowledge Are Your Top Priority
The solar eclipse in Gemini is all about embarking on new beginnings pertaining to your third house of learning and communication. Around the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26, you may have graduated from college, embarked on a long journey, or embraced new spiritual beliefs, and this solar eclipse is ushering in some fresh, exciting new energy pertaining to what you’re looking to learn next.

Taurus: Your Finances Are Getting A Much-Needed Tune-Up

Mercury retrograde in your second house along with the eclipse is about management, communication, and making necessary changes in order to move forward. As a fixed sign, this can feel a little uncomfortable, but it’s important to lean into these changes if you want to see your relationship with money improve.
Gemini: Personal Transformation Is Imminent

Once the retrograde ends on June 22, you’ll feel a bit more like yourself again.
Cancer: Mental Health Is Your Top Priority

As a Scorpio, you tend to keep your cards pretty close to your chest, but now is definitely time to open up the floor in your intimate relationships in order to communicate your desires better.
Sagittarius: Your Romantic Relationships Are Being Transformed
Since Gemini is the sign opposite yours, you’ll be feeling this eclipse quite intensely (though, not as intensely as the May lunar eclipse in Sagittarius). The solar eclipse on June 10 is all about new beginnings and fresh starts in your romantic relationships, and is a great time to embark on a new chapter with your partner. If you’re not currently in a relationship, the solar eclipse could bring someone new into your life, but be sure to take your time with things until Mercury comes out of retrograde on June 22. Miscommunication is much more likely now, so be mindful of possibly being misled.
Capricorn: Your Physical Health Is Being Emphasized
As the most productive sign of the zodiac, you’re always eager to be on the go, but the solar eclipse on June 10 is asking that you evaluate how you’re taking care of your body on a daily basis.

While Mercury’s retrograde, you may feel a bit scattered when trying to implement new routines, but once Mercury stations direct on June 22, you’ll feel those practices beginning to stick.
Aquarius: You’re Experiencing A Boost In Creativity
