A delightfully powerful celestial event, the longest day of the year –Summer Solstice (Midsummer)– vibrates with joy, happiness, good fortune, and success. As the Sun moves into the astrological sign of Cancer, some folks believe that acknowledging this heavenly occurrence enhances one’s spiritual progress. Rituals, spells, meditations, ceremonies, magickal bonfires, celebrations, picnics, feasts, festivals, and the setting of specific intentions can be part of the day’s activities.
Let’s look what’s brewing in the heavens Tuesday, 21 June 2022 as the moves into Cancer at 5:14 AM EDT/2:14 AM PDT.
Sun in Cancer (Cardinal Water) – Beginnings, the roots of a matter, home, emotional well-being, protection of hearth and home, growth, understanding, mediumship, intuition, the flow. Prayers for good things are often answered. Primary Colors – Blue, White
Moon in Aries (Cardinal Fire) – Beginnings, raw energy, speed, strength, new insights, initiative, self-discovery, banishing that which stands in your way. Primary Colors – Red, Gold, Orange.
The moon is in Lunar Mansion 1 – Al-Sharatain, good for traveling, healing, doing business and gardening.
The Solstice begins in the good fortune planetary hour of Jupiter. There is a concentration of power (a stellium) with Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon – providing a marvelous flow of good fortune and positive action (should your intention be specific). The Moon will carry its light to Jupiter and then to Mars – pushing fortunate energies and forward movement into your working.
Mercury in Gemini sextile Jupiter in Aries – Opportunities in communication, business, movement of money, and social situations.
Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn – Good Fortune in business, career, family structure, earth-related items, planning and strategy that affects your well-being.
The Moon is in the 4th Qtr — some use this time for banishing and others for rest; but, it is also the moon of germination, of nurturing the seed of light as it prepares for its life journey. This can be a time of intense concentration where you encode your future work — perhaps into real seeds for the garden, or a mojo bag, or an object that you will place on your altar. Dip into the bowl of power (the heavenly energies of the planets and stars) and bring what you desire to the surface!
How you Can Use This Energy – What jumped out at you when you read the information above? That’s what you need to work for! Nothing coming to you? Use your intuition. Perhaps utilize your favorite divination tool. Whether you choose to greet the dawn with a prayer and a salutation, or have a picnic or bonfire, or write petitions and hang them from a tree – don’t miss this marvelous celestial window of opportunity!
Seize the Day!
