Summer Solstice Tuesday, June 21st at 5:14 a.m. EDT
Sun transits into the Cardinal Water Sign of Cancer and marks the Summer Solstice (Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere) and the nurturing of those actions taken at the Spring Equinox when the Sun entered Aries.
The Solstice signifies a time of going within to connect with your wisdom and instinctual urges. The cycle of the Sun represents the cycle of our lives and reflects the natural flow of energy moving inward and outward.
There are times to grow, to pause, to shed and to learn. Just as we align with the Moon's journey every month we align with the Sun's journey throughout the year.
Cancer rules the public which is ruled by it's emotions. The United States is a Cancer Sun country and the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor portrays the Cancer type at its best - protective, yearning and sustaining quality.
Cancer energy draws your attention to your own nurturing and building up your own reserve in order to expand your care and support to others.
Home, comfort, food, family, business, women, restaurants, housing and the feminine divine mother are all amplified now.
Synchronistically the planet of love, money and interpersonal relating, Venus, from her practical position in Taurus, holds a stable trine to Capricorn on the Solstice. Personal empowerment, inner stability, depth in relating and financial themes are positively highlighted.
