Solar Eclipse in Gemini Lunar Report | Entering the Blessing Moon

The first solar eclipse of the year takes place on the 10th of June in the sign of Gemini. A solar eclipse is an extra powerful new moon because the moon crosses in front of the sun, darkening it’s light. This solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, so not all of the sun will be darkened. Instead we will see a ring of light around the sun.

Solar energy represents the masculine, which is perfectly aligned and supporting the lunar feminine energy. The moon is in between the earth and sun in an exact alignment for a portal to open.

A solar eclipse gives us an important opportunity for a major rebirth. Solar eclipses impact the next 6 months, opening up opportunities to help us accelerate our progress. There are many new possibilities and timelines ahead. You are being asked to make conscious decisions to align to and step into the path that you truly desire.

A solar eclipse opens a portal and creates a threshold for you to cross.

You might feel yourself shifting in major ways this month. Embrace the new you and allow the old you to stay in the past. Remember that it might take some time for things to manifest into physical form. Continue to do the work, trust your intuition and allow the new frequencies to lift you up.

Good Witches Homestead

The month of May in the northern hemisphere is traditionally associated with the power of the feminine goddess and the beginning of summer, both of which are celebrated at the Celtic festival of Beltane on May 1st each year.
