There will be a partial solar eclipse tonight, June 10, which people in the northern reaches of planet Earth will have the thrill of seeing as a ring of fire around the Moon. Here, sky-watchers will have a slightly more off-kilter experience. It is also a new Moon. In all, it’s a powerful time to set intentions for the months ahead.
Instead of leaping into action, consider taking time to sit with the changes and opportunities being presented to you. This eclipse is making a tricky aspect to Neptune, which likes to cloud our decision-making with deception and fantasy. What’s more, Mercury is also retrograde, further adding to the confusion.
Keep your feet firmly planted on solid ground this week until you know where you’re going and how you want to get there. When in doubt, set boundaries for yourself and others — thanks to Saturn’s influence — so that you can focus on what will bring you the most reward with the least risk. You’ll be flying free in no time, but it’s good to practice with a net.
Read your Sun sign for the “big picture” and your rising sign for “where the work is.”
