Mantra: “On this very special day when the light of the Sun is at its highest point in the sky, my path is illuminated.”

After last week’s intense New Moon energy, feel the winds of change blowing behind your back, pushing you forward! This week heralds a brand-new season with the arrival of the Summer Solstice, which is marked by the exact moment the Sun enters Cancer. This regal entrance occurs on Wednesday, June 21st at 7:58 a.m. Pacific Time, bringing the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Celebrated by cultures all over the world, the Summer Solstice not only announces warmer days, it resets the overall energy in the sky. To depict the future trends of this reset, astrologers look at the position of the planets, and their relationship, at this exact moment. These energetic themes will be active until September 23rd, which is when the Fall Equinox arrives. 


Summer Solstice Astrology

The Sun:

Rejoice! Since June 12th, solar energy has been low, resulting in tiredness, low vitality, and confusion. By starting today, the fog begins to dissipate, helping us feel more energetic and ready to co-create with the forces at play. In true Cancerian mode, we will feel less bogged down by our minds and more connected to our hearts. Solar energy is creative, so anything that we begin today has the chance of being successful. 

The Moon:

Our other luminary will also be well placed, as it will be waxing in light, which is a signature of growth. Illuminating the skies of Leo, the Moon brings a warm-hearted feel to the chart, and the potential for fun, play, and connection. Since Leo is ruled by the Sun, creativity is highlighted one more time, meaning that a lot of us will be giving birth to new projects and ideas. On the flip side, it also denotes the possibility of drama within our relationships, which will call for adjustments in July and August.  

Jupiter & Saturn:

The best part of the chart, almost any astrologer would note, is the sextile formed between the Plant of Abundance and the Planet of Structure. This fortunate connection will create the perfect terrain to bring expansion, stability, and opportunities for growth. It’s important to know that, as we succeed, we must never forget to bring a spiritual component to our growth and expansion over the next four months.
