The Summer Solstice is Monday, June 21st at 4:28 am PDT. This is also the moment the Sun enters the sign of Cancer for 30 days. During this time our homes, families, children and what we belong to gets our focus. You can read about the influence of this most sensitive of signs at the article I just wrote: Cancer Monthly Transit Talk.
Here is an except:
Cancer rules our home and our longing to belong.
I find Cancerian energy to be one the most misunderstood and challenging signs to understand. At our core, it indicates how we feel about being in our bodies and on Planet Earth, and to what degree we feel we belong and feel at home. This sign, more than any other, influences our ability to feel at ease and safe in the world.
Cancer is an emotional and impressionable sign.
During this time of the year, you can feel ultra sensitive (even if we are not a Cancer). The Moon, the ruling “planet” for Cancer, is the fastest-moving object in the skies. Hence, Cancer is changeable, moody at times and fluid in nature. It is a time that while we (all) may feel more sensitive and emotional we can also learn to be more open, caring and receptive by honoring our feelings as well as those of the people around us. We increase our capacity to be nurtured and our ability to receive~from ourselves, our families, our friends and from life.
I hope you enjoy this time as you seek out home, and allow yourself to be nurtured there.
