Summer Solstice!

Summer Solstice!


Thursday June 20 at 10:04 pm PDT is Summer Solstice, the longest day in the northern hemisphere. Mother Nature is at her peak during this time of abundant light. On this day the Sun enters sensitive Water sign Cancer, the sign of the mother, nurturer, and healer that rules the 4th house of astrology, the house of family, roots, and home. Feng shui enhancements are favored at this time, especially improvements that add beauty to your environment.


Sunday June 23 at 4:32 am PDT is a full Moon in the Earth sign Capricorn. This is an ideal time to let your pragmatic side shine and be organized, especially in business, before Mercury goes retrograde in a few days. Good fortune can come your way and life can flow easily on this full Moon. There is a grand Water trine whereby the Sun and Jupiter are in Cancer, Saturn is in Scorpio, and Neptune is in Pisces — all Water signs.This extremely harmonious connection of planets makes it easier to trust the flow of life, follow your intuition, and be creative. Feel free to call me at 415.642.8019 or email for a tarot or astrology reading to best align with this grand Water trine energy. Luck is strongest for the the Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and for those born in Ox, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.


Wednesday June 26 at 6:07 am PDT communication planet Mercury goes retrograde in the Water sign Cancer until July 20. Communicate your feelings, and really listen to the sentiment of what people say. Mercury is best in Air signs like Aquarius and Gemini, so can get a bit murky or unclear in Water sign Cancer. So take more time to communicate, and know that what people say and what people feel might not have any connection. During a Mercury retrograde cycle in this Water Snake year, slow down and be more thorough. And be very picky about any documents that you sign. The final Mercury retrograde of 2013 will be October 21 through November 10 in the Water sign Scorpio.

Happy full Moon,
