Partial Solar Eclipse in Gemini
June 01, 2011

The partial solar eclipse on June 1, 2011 falls at 11 degrees Gemini. The simple explanation for an eclipse is that an eclipse can only occur when the Moon moves between the earth and Sun in such a way that it blocks the image of the Sun as viewed by a person on Earth.

This blockage of the Sun by the Moon can only occur when the transiting Moon is within a certain orb (distance in degrees) of the North or South Node. Thus a partial solar eclipse can only occur when the new Moon is within 15 degrees 21 minutes of the degree of the North or South Node. A total solar eclipse can only occur when the new Moon is within 0 degrees and 9 degrees 55 minutes of either Node. Because the new Moon is at 11 degrees Gemini and the South Node is at 24 degrees Gemini the Moon and the South Node are approximately 13 degrees apart. This is within orb for a partial solar eclipse but too far apart for a total solar eclipse.

This June 1 partial solar eclipse is part of the Saros 13 Old South series of solar eclipses that feature a Jupiter/New Moon conjunction and Mars on the midpoint of New Moon/Saturn as part of its signature energy. That is, it carries this energy as part of its essence. This old, carried-forward energy then combines with the energy of the current transiting New Moon in Gemini trine Saturn retrograde in Libra and square Chiron and Neptune in Pisces.

What does all of this mean to you? Let’s put it all together.

  • Jupiter (from the old Saros series) conjunct the eclipse new moon/sun carries a spirit of optimism regarding something new. A time to start something in a spirit of optimism with a possible happy outcome.

  • Mars (from the old Saros series) on the New Moon/Saturn midpoint brings emotional feelings of inhibition or inferiority, but can also provide the desire to overcome difficulties and the stamina to see a tiresome project through to the end if sufficient self control is applied.

  • Saturn now retrograde in Libra forms a close trine to the eclipse in Gemini. This aspect will bring form and structure to any changes that we implement at this time.

  • The Moon/Sun duo squares Chiron and Neptune in Pisces. At the time of the eclipse there may be some confusion or you may have trouble sorting out your thoughts (Neptune). However, it is a great time to meditate on any desired changes. A clear mind (Gemini) is essential for bringing about the moon changes indicated by the eclipse. The Sun/Moon square to Chiron urges you to dare to express your individuality, which can bring great healing to your psyche.

  • The moon is always about change. The New Moon relates to starting something new–a new project, job, relationship, etc. The New Moon in Gemini specifically relates to those matters having to do with communication. That is, writing, speaking, emailing, etc.

  • The New Moon trine Saturn retrograde in Libra lets us know that we are supported by easy energy (trine) as we put a foundation (Saturn) under our new ideas. Also, because Saturn is retrograde we will be supported in resurrecting an old idea or project and trying to bring it to fruition in a new or novel way. Once Saturn turns direct after June 12 we will be able to move forward with gusto on any change implemented at the eclipse. However, we must be mindful that trines only work if we work them. That is, in order to get the blessing of the trine we need to do the hard work called for by Saturn.

Putting it all together, the New Moon solar eclipse is an excellent time to pursue new ideas and to move new projects forward through communication and working the plan. It is an excellent time to look for a new job or to revamp an old job. Look to the house in your natal chart where the eclipse occurs to get more specific information to determine what area of your life these changes will occur. For instance if the eclipse falls in your 7th house of relationships, it would be a good time to find a new relationship or to revamp an old one. You would be aided in this effort by using good communication skills (eclipse in Gemini) and to put forth the effort needed to bring about a change.

I hope this helped you understand the June 1, 2011 partial solar eclipse in Gemini.  I would love to hear any comments or questions you may have. If you wish to have a more personal reading please Schedule an Astrology Reading or call me at (720) 362-3305.

    Hi Ruby,

    My birth details are 3rd sept 1969 at 7.04pm in Melbourne, Australia.

    I have a couple of questions (one of them pertains to the June 15 Eclipse so you might want to answer this at a later date?) –

    My natal moon is at 7 degrees Gemini in the 3rd house and ruling my 5th house. Is the orb for this eclipse too wide ie: 4 degrees? Alot of my planets are around the 6 to 11 degrees.

    With the Lunar eclipse on the 15th June its going to be smack on my MC and squaring my AC/DC axis. I’m not really sure how this is going to play out. I finished a work contract at the end of April so it could stimulate my Career zone – I have found it difficult to find new job. I have also been having some father issues in the last few weeks so it could also have something to do with that.

    Do you have any ideas on how these 2 eclipses are going to play out?

    My life has been utter rubbish for what feels like the last 20 years so heres hoping these eclipses will push it in a better direction!


    • Ruby

      Dear C,

      I actually get the impression of quite a “happy” group of planets in your 3rd house on the June 1st eclipse, though they do square your Sun in Virgo. I would definitely get your resume out there right away, especially if your career field has anything to do with communications (very wide field). I don’t think the orb is too wide at all, especially when you consider the power of an eclipse and the square to your Sun as part of the picture. By the way, with your Sun in Virgo, try not to overthink things. Just send the resume (or whatever action you wish to take) with good vibes and let it go.

      As for June 15th it does indeed square your angles in quite a dramatic way. You may need to let some things go and readjust your personal presentation, any relationship issues and your career versus home dynamics. Some indication that you could have a career at home. Is that a possibility?

      And yes, I do think it also relates to your father issues. Time to let something go there also. Note Saturn in your 2nd house natally. Has father’s disapproval been holding you back in some way?

      Good luck.

    I just read your article on tomorrow’s eclipse. Tomorrow’s eclipse actually conjuncts my Ascendant. Could you tell me whether this would have a positive impact on my academic dreams ? I have been trying hard to get things off the ground for the last few years.

    I was born on 11th December 1982 @ 17.30 in Calicut (town), Kerala(State), India.

    • Ruby

      Hello Arjun, Use the eclipse on your ascendant to really project yourself out there toward your dreams. Using your gift for communication (1st house Gemini) keep trying to find ways to make your dream come true. I see the eclipse giving you power to make those dreams happen. Best of luck in your endeavors.

    hi there,
    today is my birthday , may 31st, born 1960 in duesseldorf , germany, i do have a very hefty saturn influence in my chart already and was wondering if the eclipse tomorrow could possibly put me on a spin into a more prosperous business energy. also have been wondering if living in northern calfornia makes things a lot more difficult than they need to be. any insight would be very apreciated for this bright but confused gemini, merci

    • Ruby

      Happy Birthday Martina! This eclipse definitely has good potential to propel your career as it conjuncts your natal sun. Your 10th house natal chart is also beneficial for career. The eclipse will help bring out your natal promise. The strong Saturn in your chart makes me think that what may be holding you back is a lack of belief in yourself. It is sesiquadrate the midpoint of your natal Sun/Mercury, which would indicate challenges in that area.

    I was reading this post and I really loved it. I’ve been reading posts all over about this particular eclipse of June 1st and I found that this post is the one or only one that really gave me what I was looking for. Thank you so much for your info, it is great and looking at my chart I learned a lot.
    This eclipse in particular squares Pluto in my 11th house, the JUNE 15th eclipse falls in my 5th and square my Sun in the 8th house, the JULY 1st eclipse falls in my 12th house and is square my Venus in the 9th house, and the NOVEMBER 25th eclipse will square my mars and my mercury in the 8th house, so as you can see I am a little concerned about all these squares all over. It’s kind of scary.

    So that is the reason why I ended up in here and I am SO GLAD! 🙂

    • Ruby

      PisceS-LeO, thank you so much for your comments regarding my article. I put a lot of effort into the article and am always glad when they help someone. It seems that there is a theme of transformation in your chart with regard to the eclipses (square to Pluto) and making peace with the past (July 1st eclipse in the 12th house) through higher mind activity (9th house Venus) such as philosophy, travel, spiritual pursuits, etc.

    Hi Astroherb;

    Just wondered about 2 issues to these 3 eclipses. One is; a huge new private venture business I started last year in July… with possibilites in Europe, UAE, and the USA. I have a team of partners I have been diligently working with since and it has been a lot of work. During this time, I met a really terrific guy albeit a lot of tumultous commications and misunderstandings and haven’t seen him since February. I miss him deeply, madly, passtionately but don’t think it salvageable at this point… he has been out with other women to make me jealous but I am not doing anything to retaliate… just wondered if you could give me just a little insight 🙂 Mine is February 22, 1970 6:17 am Wyo – his is Nov 21, 1956 (unknown birth) Oklahoma

    • Ruby

      BJ, You didn’t give me the city of birth for either yourself or the guy who was in your life so I cannot be sure of how the chart plays out. However, as near as I can see, his Saturn, Mercury, Sun and North Node all fall on your Neptune. That would indicate to me that you idealized him to a fault (Neptune). Also, whenever there is a nodal contact between two charts there is an irrestible pull between the two parties (whether for good or bad). As far as your career, the eclipse will not greatly impact it unless it is of a creative nature. If so, it could loosen things up and things could begin to move.

      • Ruby

        Deborah, This eclipse falls on your 7th/1st house axis and since there are many contacts I’m sure it will have an effect on you. As you know you have several natal planets in the 7th house so relationships are important to you. However, you have those planets square Uranus in Virgo on your 10th house cusp. All of the Gemini planets and the square indicate that a part of you really does not want to be committed and there is an issue with freedom. If you really and truly have matured to the point that your Uranus/Gemini energy is under control and you are okay with settling down, then please spend some time coming to terms with that idea. You may be attracting the wrong men because of unknown thoughts. On a positive note, all of the 7th house planets would indicate that you can most definitely be lucky in love.
