More sizzle on the way for the Cardinal signs.
The Sun's ingress into Cancer (the Summer Solstice) marks the longest day of the year, on June 21st. It's a high point, because the Sun's energy is at its peak. But it's not particularly mellow.
The Solstice is a time of celebration. Cancer is about birth, family, nurturing, needs and domestic issues. So this can be a time to celebrate what you love/what you've created, in your home and family. Or, if home and family are not happy subjects for you, what you're "giving birth to" in your life. What you've created and nurtured. Because of the energetic peak, there's a sense of urgency. Cancer is a Cardinal sign, which means it starts things. There's nothing mellow about birth
What's coming to fruition in your life right now? 0 degrees Cancer (in your chart) is where there will be a surge of energy. Can you make use of it?
Adding to the buildup of energy is an opposition between Mars (action) in Libra and Uranus (liberation) in Aries, exact on June 25th at 16 degrees. But it's definitely in aspect now. Mars rules Aries, and in Libra its energy is focused on the other. Uranus in Aries will be the other. There's tension between socially appropriate actions and the drive for individuality. Note that an opposition is a culmination, so there will be a release of tension. You don't have to be overwhelmed by this energy if you're aware it's coming.
Some possible scenarios:
- disputes over freedom in relationships
- disputes over what's appropriate/inappropriate
- sudden actions aimed at another
- impulsively breaking free of a relationship
- impulsively starting a relationship
Mars/Uranus is volatile, so there is a need for caution between now and June 25th. Do not push the other person. You won't like the results. If you're the one being pushed, back off and chill out. If you must retaliate (sometimes you have to) stay aware of the consequences. Your goal should be to express your will, not hurt the other person. Consider the difference between those objectives.
Note that the last Mars/Uranus opposition (when Mars was Rx) was on April 23rd at 13 degrees (it was part of the Cardinal Cross). There may be a repeat of what was stirred up back then. But this is the final go 'round.
The best use of this energy, along with the Solstice, is to push something of your own forward. Something you created, something that expresses your individuality. If you're newly single, this could be the time to celebrate your independence, and the new life you're creating.
If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 0-1 degrees of the Cardinal signs, you'll feel the Solstice energy most strongly. 14-19 degrees of the Cardinal signs, you'll feel the Mars/Uranus opposition.
