Tip of the Week:

Summer Solstice is upon us. The longest day of sunlight occurs over the course of June 20 to 22 as the exact moment of solstice is, as usual, on June 21st. This is when the Sun enters the time/sign of Cancer, measured by Earth’s orbit around the Sun with rhythmic consistency.

This stabilizing factor linked directly to the Sun’s light subject to the Earth’s angle of axial tilt also corresponds to the regular progression of the seasons thus marking the official start of summer which, ironically, corresponds also the progressive decrease of hours of sunlight culminating at Winter Solstice.

Can you see how this symbolically corresponds to the waxing and waning Moon revealing a rhythmic, cyclic process of minimum to maximum light and back to minimum again? On that note, the New Moon in Gemini occurs on June 18th.

Interestingly, the backdrop to these consistent cycles reveals an ever-changing context of planetary positions and inter-relational dynamics. In fact, this planetary context is always changing and is never the same twice!

In this regard, life manifests as an ever-changing process of social, economic, and political dynamics with core themes remaining the same: a dynamic spectrum of an ever-changing climate, antagonists and protagonists, villains and heroes as the spectrum of life from people to empires rise and fall, invariably, inevitably, consistently and certainly each ever seeking a new spin of perspective, opinion, and ambitious assertion often with justified secrecy, deception, and aggression, as the Earth rhythmically turns and cycles.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your mind is clear and sharp, and all your senses are on full volume. This arousing spirit will inspire you to seek entertaining people and engage in corresponding activities. Although summer is officially here, spring fever is lingering and could well persist for weeks to come.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your energy levels are running high and strong. Harnessing this boon to redirect it in every direction you feel determined to pursue could prove to result in high productivity. This is an expansive time for you, and you feel excited to use it to advance your overall position.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

This New Moon seed in your sign will ignite your pioneering spirit. As if suddenly, you yearn to enter new territory somehow. To counter what has likely been a period of retreat, the time is right to take new initiatives of all kinds and at least capitalize on this boost of inspiration.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Your creative spirit will experience a boost from this New Moon. Expect to be more animated and imaginative. Whether in your lab, studio, garden, or garage, this moment beckons creative engagement. It could even manifest as an inventive impulse that inspires you to new and surprising innovations.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Who are your friends, or is the emphasis on your audience? Either way, inspiration to increase your engagement is likely and could well achieve a boost of popularity. Social engagement is generally favored. If you are in the business of building your list and expanding your network, this is your cue.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

The spotlight is on your public and professional life. The emphasis is more sober than playful but could prove extra inspiring in terms of advancing your position. Jupiter in Taurus is well positioned to support this effort and will continue for many months, so focus to capitalize!

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The air-sign Gemini Moon is in your element and will likely prove inspiring and uplifting for you. It signals an auspicious window of opportunity to get away for a bit, if only for a few days. In this regard, do it now if you can. Circumstances could swing quickly to more sobering affairs soon after the solstice.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The influences of Gemini tend to be a bit more complex for you than others. However, it can be harnessed positively, especially in terms of personal growth. Use this energy to strip an unwanted layer or two, whether it be in your perspectives, attitudes, habitual approaches, or otherwise.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The emphasis on relationships continues and increases this week thanks to the Gemini impulse. The time is right to engage with friends and lovers. The advent of solstice could turn the energy to deeper matters, however. You could be confronted with themes of ending, completion, and transformation.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

The focus has been and continues to be directed to your health and lifestyle in general. The emphasis will lean toward the quality of your relationships, both in your personal and professional life. Making investments of your energy, time, focus and perhaps money too is featured.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

This New Moon contains seeds of creative inspiration for you. There are romantic overtones as well and the combination of these energies could prove quite satisfying. With your confidence levels on a steady rise, you are in a good position to advance to the next level of your overall journey.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

A fresh burst of energy will inspire even more focus on your home and family. It will shift into a stronger creative impulse progressively over the coming days and weeks. Extra efforts will be required and are already so direct your focus to an attitude of determination and a ‘whistle while you work’ approach.
