If this week had an insta bio, it might say, “A little bit dramatic”. An eclipse on Wednesday (GMT and AEST) makes way for major “a-ha!” moments and kicks off a new six-month cycle. Eclipses represent beginnings and endings, and in Gemini – a sign synonymous with change – well, things are about to get interesting. Exactly where the changes are unfolding will depend on your sign (more on that in the horoscopes).

Meanwhile the weekend looks a little angsty as one of the definitive astro moments of 2021 makes its second appearance. For a hint on what it’s all about, cast your mind back to mid Feb (around 16/17 February) when this weather last rolled in. It’s a major mood that might feel more noticeable on a collective level than in your day-to-day life. Still, the friction between a craving for freedom and a yearning for security could feel very real.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING 

If you’ve been doing Mercury retrograde right (sitting back, listening more, watching what unfolds), you’ve probably noticed a few things that would usually pass you by. This week may be the moment to put your findings to the test. Experimenting with a new way of expressing yourself is the perfect way to harness the big change energy.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

Money may have been weighing heavily on your mind this month, but the eclipse on 10 June marks a line in the sand. It’s time to turn over a leaf, but not the way you think. Is your fear around money real, or is it time for a change in perspective? The next six months will be a lesson in grasping less and being more fluid with your cash.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Big changes are on the cards as the way you, “do you”. Whether it’s professionally, romantically or aesthetically ­– your personal brand is set for an overhaul. Like a makeover montage from your favourite rom com, it’s new hair/nails/everything energy. The question is, who do you want to be next?

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

The eclipse this week marks a major psychic reboot for Cancerians. Think of it like a system update to your subconscious. While your new software downloads, your deepest self gets a major up-level. Pay attention to dreams, synchronicities and signs – you’re not imagining it, your intuition will be 20/20.

LEO AND LEO RISING

You should feel like a new person after the 11 when Mars moves into Leo. Energy, confidence and general swagger will return to usual programming after a very low key few weeks (TF!). New friends or colleagues could also be on the scene as the eclipse hits refresh on your social set.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Like a mirage amid the chaos, the eclipse offers a moment of clarity on 10 June – especially at work. If you’ve been searching for answers or waiting for something to be signed off, expect progress. It won’t be the definitive resolution you’re wanting, but it’s a step in the right direction and a hint of what’s to come.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING  

If you only do one thing this week, clear the decks to take some time out around the eclipse (10 June). There’s a window for inspiration and clarity but with so much collective angst, it will be easy to get swept away in the big feelings. Steal yourself away to connect with your intuition.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

If you’ve been waiting on news or approvals on something decidedly adult – like a mortgage, loan or an offer on property – the eclipse on 10 June could offer the clarity you’ve been craving. Stay open to opportunities to collaborate. Sharing your resources will be a major theme over the next six months.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Brace yourself for major developments on the romance front as the eclipse casts a spotlight on your love life. It could be a new person arriving on the scene or the return of an old flame. If you’re coupled up, expect big developments in your partner’s life or a change in the way you approach your relationship.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

Are you a picky eater – figuratively or literally speaking? This weeks’ eclipse is all about loosening the reins on how you look after yourself (think: food, workout, wellness). If you’re the type to take their own food on a plane, it’s time to loosen up. It may sound terrifying but trying new things might actually be enjoyable.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Experimenting might sound like the kind of thing you should be into, but in reality, Aquarians can get a little stuck in their ways. Don’t worry about the finished product, just start where you are. This eclipse is an invitation to get free creatively and get comfortable with trial and error.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

The big shifts continue this week as the eclipse on the 10th turns over a new leaf around your home and living situation. Stay open to random downloads around where/how or who you live with. The next six months is time to try different things – whether its rearranging furniture or moving to a new neighbourhood.
