“I stood transfixed, the silence ringing in my ears. From the field of wild grasses; cocksfoot, tufted hair, wild oat, tall fescue, reed canary and perennial rye, their subtle shades of green, ochre and pink softly patching and blending in rustling movement, suddenly rose a small flock of starlings that had been feeding quietly unseen among the tall waving stems, the swish of their glossy wings startlingly loud in the stillness of midday. Heat held me captive.”
Mars opposes Pluto Retrograde today, demanding your attention in all things rather than ignoring them now and having to watch them churn to the surface later when they’ll be more complicated to deal with. Be careful of a tendency to purge the wrong things from your life as a solution. Take your time, consider all the information, and then make an informed decision. Mercury in Cancer helps separate the unimportant details from the critical details.
Moon enters the sign of Aquarius this evening, asking us to put away the day’s energy and stop trying to fix things that aren’t broken. Under this transit, we may decide that disorder isn’t so bad and put off trying to get our ducks lined up. Brilliant ideas abound. Come up with something unique to do to veer away from old, outdated routine.
The Summer Solstice occurs on 21 June 2019 at 11:54 a.m. EDT (Friday) in the northern hemisphere. This is the longest day of the year, with 3 hours, 17 minutes more daylight than on the Winter Solstice, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
In contrast, those in the southern hemisphere will experience the shortest day of the year with the least sunlight hours and the longest night.
The signs that will be most impacted are:
- Cancer: The Sun is moving into your sign, and you’ll ~feel~ it. Take center stage and leave no emotion behind. It’s time to use your emotional depth to get in touch with your unique and wonderful self. It’s also an ideal season to reassess your path while utilizing the energy of your solar return (also known as your birthday). Allow yourself to be flexible and open so you can embrace your future self, making any necessary adjustments or changes that may enable you to live your life to it’s fullest potential, during your next rotation around the sun. It’s your season to shine!
- Libra: Home is where the Solstice is, Libra. This summer solstice may find you exploring your aesthetic prowess, in regards to your home. Is your home the sanctuary you seek? Is it a place where both beauty and equality freely roam? If your needs aren’t being met, what changes need to be made in your living environment to create this healing space to call home? You may even enjoy the process of redecorating. Breathe new life into your walls, as this summer solstice sees you attending to your creature comforts. How can you turn your home into something that inspires you daily?
- Capricorn: This Solstice will usher Capricorn out of the office and into the heart of, well, the heart. This solstice sees your romantic life getting turned up a notch. It’s time to deepen your relationships with others, Capricorn! It’s ok to be vulnerable and not always the one in charge. Sometimes you need to rest your head on someone’s shoulder too, and not always be the capable leader that you are. This season allows you to show your more sensitive side while building and deepening your relationships with others. Allow yourself to be open as you feel the energy of the seasons change.
- Aries: If you got your eye on the corner office, this turn of astrological energy will be a boost. This summer solstice sees you using your wonderfully competitive qualities to bring your career to new heights! Summer may have just begun, but work is what’s on your mind, Aries, and rightly so! This is a power month for your career arena, and this cardinal energy, which you know so well, will help you find the career momentum you’re often after. This summer solstice sees you taking the reigns and shining on the world’s stage.
Of course, all signs will be impacted, but these four more than others.
