Sun in Cancer/Leo Happy Summer Solstice! Whether you're proud to be an American at the 4th of July or proud of your transgendered child at a Gay Pride Parade (Go Chaz!), now is the time to find out what you are proud of in your life. Your ancestry? Your sports team? Your college? Your accomplishments? And who is in your pride- your family, your colleagues, your co-workers, your classmates? Throw one big ol' party in the name of peace this summer, and remember to invite me.
Full Moon in Capricorn Use your emotions as a barometer as you explore new terrains in your inner landscape. Find what makes you happy and stay there.
New Moon in Leo New beginnings in family, relationships, siblings and neighbors are occurring, and now is the time to create the support network you'll need for next winter.
Mercury in Gemini/Cancer Mercury moves out of it's native Gemini in the first few days of the month, moving into soothing Cancer after the lingering effects of a long retrograde last May. Speak of love.
Venus in Taurus/Gemini Venus glides into lovely Gemini in the early part of the month, bringing grace to all your communications. She is all a Twitter and tweaking her profiles, since social networking is what she does best.
Mars in Taurus/Gemini All that spring cleaning is finally paying off, and Mars moving into Gemini has us taking action on what was only a dream before. Try a different approach in connecting with others and communicate your deepest desires.
Saturn in Virgo is sextile the Sun - There is a certain opportunity for you now to nurture your health and happiness, or to restructure your finances in a healthier way, but only if you act on it quick. Strike while the iron is hot.
Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron retrograde in Aquarius Another portal is opened on July 10, when these three are exact again - Think back to May 26, when the first portal appeared. This energy will occur again on December 21. Important doors are opening for you now - Prepare to step through them.
Pluto in Capricorn Pluto moves back to the first degrees of Capricorn, having us re-begin projects that we have been procrastinating on. Pluto is still squaring Uranus in Pisces, so it can shake our belief systems, our faith in ourselves, to find we have to start from scratch. Remember, fall down nine times - Get up ten.
AstroChat for the Signs
Aries: Take some time to yourself, relish in the bath tub, exfoliate the past and preen for the present. Luxuriate in solitude and fear not aloneness - You are bright shiny star, Aries, polish up those dull and boring edges and get ready to twinkle!
Taurus: While we all love being in love, my sweet Taurus, don't let infatuate be a distraction. An affair now could be a long detour - ask yourself, do I want to get laid, or do I want to get married? Keep your hands on the wheel and you'll reach the love shack sooner than you think.
Gemini: What does loyalty mean to you, Gemini? On one hand, how are you loyal to yourself? On the other hand, where do you feel compromised? When feeling stuck between the two sides, remember to bring your hands together - there is always a third option.
Cancer: Raise a toast for all your accomplishments, Cancer! Now is the time to be the master of your emotions, rather than letting your emotions master you. How will you continue to take charge this summer? Remember to rule with kindness.
Leo: Happy Birthday Leo! Another year completed - You learned your lessons, you learned them well, you graduated and now you get to move on... Take a well earned break before deciding just what you will do next. A new teacher awaits you.
Virgo: All the neighbors are noticing you, Virgo. Your house, your garden, your car - take the time to spiff up with some elbow grease, a new coat of paint, and a fresh wax job instead of buying anything new - Your efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle are more impressive and have more of an impact than you think.
Libra: I know you've been feeling moody and moon-y, my fellow Libras, lunatic to the core. It has been a crazy time as emotional tides ride high and low, leaving the flotsam of doubt upon mental shores. Sleep late this summer - your beauty rest will restore and rejuvenate your sweetest of dreams.
Scorpio: Everything is sunny side up for you, Scorpio! Feel the searing heat penetrate your armour and soak up the energy of the solstice. Make art, make love, make peace this summer and remember - All acts of creation are acts of liberation.
Sagittarius: Time for balance, my fiery friend: Balance your diet, your checkbook, work and play, being social and being soulful. Travel into your higher mind and use your day dreams for mental vacations. Everything will be stable before changing again.
Capricorn: Everything looks like a nail, when you only have a hammer. What new tools can you add to your mental toolbox, Cap? Take a class or volunteer this summer - you'll be surprised at your people skills.
Aquarius: Now is the time to take stock of your proverbial kingdom, whether queen of the kitchen or Lord of the Bar-B-Que. Let go of instant gratification and come back to the goodness found only in home made, from scratch, recipes. Time is on your side.
Pisces: Now is the time to transcend deceptions, my dear Pisces, but mostly self-deception. Put down that mop and broom, admit you can't do it all by yourself, and open your arms to receiving the help you need. Speak your truth even if your voice shakes.
