The astrology and horoscope forecast for the week beginning June 7, 2021, features a solar eclipse in Gemini, Mars moving into Leo, and a befuddling Sun square Neptune.
But let’s begin with the obvious – Mercury is retrograde in Gemini until June 22.
Even though Mercury is moving again, albeit slowly, we will continue to experience Mercury retrograde issues. Expect problems with communication, electronic devices, plans, and it’s best to avoid signing documents or making decisions unless you have no other choice.
(I do have Mercury Rx Neutralizer candles available in my shop. If you need a bit of extra help while Mercury is in cray-cray mode, you can order them while supplies last.)
Astrology Hot Spots
Solar Eclipse in Gemini:
This week we have a solar eclipse in the sign of Gemini. Now ordinarily, solar eclipses usually affect heads of state, government leaders, high-powered corporate execs, and notable personalities on the world stage. The good news is that solar eclipses are not as potent as lunar eclipses (In astrology, the Moon rules ordinary people).
Since the sign of Gemini involves communication, during the eclipse, you may have difficulty communicating with others or getting your point across. Further, you may have trouble understanding others as well. As with all eclipses, it is recommended that you slow down, practice self-care, and hydrate. Since the eclipse is square Neptune, I would also recommend avoiding alcohol and mood-altering substances. The solar eclipse happens on Thursday at 6:53 AM EST.
Mars in Leo:
This week, Mars moves out of Cancer and into fiery Leo. In astrology, Mars is in his fall in Cancer, so he will appreciate moving into a sign more to his liking – and so will you! If your ‘get up and go’ has been broken over the last six weeks or you have been less energetic than usual, Mars in Leo will help you get your mojo back.
Mars in Leo is energetic, motivating, and likes to get things done. This is one of Mars’s best placements if you need a jolt of courage (remember that cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz?). You may also find that your creative juices will flow steadily. Mars does tangle with Saturn and Uranus while he is in Leo, but I will cover the astrology of that next month.
Mars remains in Leo until July 29.
Sun square Neptune:
Now and then, we all need a break, and Sunday is the day to do it since the Sun squares Neptune in Pisces.
In astrology, while the Sun is in Gemini, he likes to socialize, communicate with others, and share ideas and opinions. But sometimes, we can go into information overload and just need a break, and Neptune is more than happy to oblige.
This weekend, you may have the urge to disconnect from the rest of the world, cancel plans, and do nothing of importance. Instead, you may want to spend the day resting, enjoying some music, or watching a movie. Chilling will be your primary objective.
However, one bit of caution, avoid putting too much faith in the wrong people because they most likely will let you down.
Financial issues may be a concern at the beginning of the week but should be resolved quickly.
