The Summer Solstice is almost upon us. The Sun moves into Cancer on June 21st, introducing the culmination of its power on the longest day of the year.
This year's Solstice promises to be an emotional affair. The Sun will be in an exact trine to sensitive, dreamy Neptune at 0 degrees Pisces. Cancer absorbs emotions while Pisces connects on a spiritual, subconscious level. So we have a link between the mundane (Cancer) and the transcendent dreamer. Mercury in Cancer will trine the Moon in Pisces. If there was ever a time to articulate (Mercury) your fantasies and "impractical" longings (Moon in Pisces), this is it.
This Solstice will be the tipping point in the Grand Cardinal Cross. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this Cross is about fighting for what you want. So when the Sun arrives in Cancer, it'll be time to step up and actualize those dreams. It won't be fun or easy, but what's the point of having dreams if they never see the light of day?
