Solar Eclipse of June 10, 2021

On June 10, 2021 there will be an Annular Solar Eclipse. This eclipse will be fully visible across a ribbon starting from the northern shore of Ontario, Canada which will extend across the North Pole to Siberia. It will be partially visible in most of Russia and in the Eastern and Midwest states of the United States.

This eclipse will not be total, so the Sun will never be completely covered.

In Western Astrology, there are many different opinions as to the impact of eclipses. Below is a video explaining my view.

Chart of the Solar Eclipse of June 10, 2021

The chart of the Solar Eclipse of June 10, 2021 is one of the mildest that I have ever seen, especially looking at the seven Traditional Planets.

Mercury is retrograde applying to a tight conjunction with the Sun and Moon. Any time Mercury is this close to the Sun, she is debilitated, but she is in her own sign of Gemini.

For more information about Mercury retrogrades, see:

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle

The Sun and Moon are separating from a trine with Saturn. Mercury looks like she is headed back for a trine with Saturn, but she will turn around and go direct before she perfects the trine.

There is a wide separating trine between Venus and Jupiter. Other than that, there are no aspects between the Traditional Planets.

If one considers the Outer Planets, the most troubling aspect is a tight square between Saturn and Uranus. These planets do not move very fast so this aspect was also in the chart for the Total Lunar Eclipse of May 26, 2021.

All of this means that this eclipse will probably not play a major role in impacting world events.

To the extent that it does have an impact, it will be in the realm of thought and ideas.

Solar Saros Series 147

This eclipse is a little more interesting when one considers the Saros Series that it belongs to.

Eclipses come in families known as Saros Series, which produce a similar eclipse once every eighteen years. For more information about Saros Series, see:

Eclipse Seasons and Saros Cycles, The Solar Eclipse of August 11, 2018

This Saros Series began with a Partial Solar Eclipse only visible around the North Pole on October 12, 1624.

This eclipse also seems to be active in the realm of ideas, with four out of seven of the Traditional Planets in the Air Sign of Libra.

At first glance, this chart appears to be quite mild, but a few months after it occurred, King Charles I became ruler of the United Kingdom after the death of his father, King James VI of Scotland and King James I of England. King Charles I ended up being executed after he was deposed in the British Civil War.

The Battle of Edgehill, the battle in which the Civil War began in earnest occurred on October 23, 1642, the very day of the next Solar Eclipse in this series.

That being said, Solar Saros Series 147 will never produce a Total Solar Eclipse, which takes some of the teeth out of this series.

Conclusion and recommendations

It is quite likely that the Solar Eclipse of June 10, 2021 will be a mild one, with a negligible outward impact. It may impact the world of ideas, however. Ideas are important. Both good and bad ideas have changed the world.

Even so, there is unlikely to be any lasting impact as a result of this eclipse.

Still, as always, if you are in the path of the Solar Eclipse, try to avoid seeing it. If you can stay inside with the curtains and shades closed. Other than that, it is safe to go about your business as you normally would without thinking too much about it.
