The Summer Solstice- June 20, 2024

The Summer Solstice is a time for recreation, outdoors, fun, and adventure. Astrologically, the Sun is in the sign of Cancer, and relates to the 4th zodiacal house, all about our homes and families.  This is a time to harness the healing powers of the Sun. The energy is fresh and light-hearted. Some activities include making sun-catchers, sun crowns, and sun tea.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself to help you work with the energies of the Summer Solstice:

  • How can I benefit from the Sun’s rays?
  • How can I connect with the power of the Sun?
  • What recreational activities, trips, and celebrations would I like to engage in this Summer?
  • How can I attract abundance and prosperity?
  • What are some of my plans, goals, and agendas for the Summer Season?

 Let’s take a more in depth look at the overall energies, attributes, and themes you can expect for the Summer Solstice, along with the major planetary aspects that the Moon and personal planets will be making this day:

The Moon will be in Sagittarius

With the Moon in Sagittarius, the energy will be easy-going, and you will mainly value freedom over feeling emotionally tied down.  In relationships, you are open and honest with your emotions. You now have an extra interest in higher learning, and a strong curiosity about things, which may lead to long-distance travel, or higher education.

The Moon will form an Opposition with Jupiter

You now have a helpful and obliging nature, coupled with the desire to help others in need. Philosophical or religious questions may occupy your mind now, however, you can experience personal conflicts over matters of outlook and spiritual beliefs. Connections with overseas countries through travel or international business may feature now. Negatively, there can be a tendency for laziness and over-indulgence in pleasure-seeking activities.

The Moon will form a Square with Saturn

The energy from this aspect can be challenging. You may be feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by family responsibilities, and it is possible your relationship with a parent could be distant or emotionally unfulfilling. There may be general difficulties with the female-sex. You are also given to recycling feelings of anxiety or worry.

Mercury will be in Cancer

“What is felt is what is remembered”- is the theme here. Your intellect and thinking processes may now be influenced by your feelings.  You will be very nostalgic, intuitive, and perceptive. Your thoughts will be centered on your home and family matters. Expect important news on the home front most likely.

Venus will also be in Cancer

You will experience deep and sincere feelings of love and protection towards your loved ones.  To feel emotionally secure, you need to have affection and tenderness demonstrated. You will have a desire for partnership and an extra appreciation of family life right now.  Social activities will be on the horizon within your home, with guests feeling welcomed.

Mars will be in Taurus

You will be thinking about setting practical and realizable goals. With strong powers of perseverance and endurance now, you have the ability to apply yourself to a task for hours on end.  In all likelihood, you are motivated to acquire possessions and material security. You will be slow to anger, but if pushed too far, you can become a formidable opponent. You can experience some conflicts with others through being stubborn, intractable or unyielding.
