Summer Solstice 2021


Summer Solstice Greetings!  

 


The Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, arrives on Sunday, June 20, 2021. The zenith of the sun's light at this time of year will help you focus solar (soul-ar) energy on your growth and evolution. It is a good time to start new projects, meet new people, and use the increased light and energy of the summer sun to send positive thoughts, prayers, and affirmations to manifest your highest ideals. The summer sun will deeply energize your spiritual, mental, emotional, and material progress. Your prayers are powerful, so remember to pray for the highest good for yourselves and for our world!

 

The bulk of  June's heavy duty planetary alignments will be in the rearview mirror just days before the Summer Solstice on June 20, 2021.  So you may find the coming summer season a relaxing respite from the high-intensity spring season.  With most of the outer planets https://ci3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/5ugrghfFH56gGuDQVbcJzNEzJAQTKUjyfRtTBZ3T0UJeuMnI5r53VQb4146mgViV6Ux1ECVcL-cEYSnTXnAzjeLRy9armJHzAlJ3gadX4VxUBosl9DciqGyzvOZtDkH49BbQQJUtfWIWTw8AUgz9nN1lRnm61g=s0-d-e1-ft#https://mcusercontent.com/5e802a77cb5fc2fac21621baf/images/c9f6ef90-5f3e-4c0a-0aad-3d59ea3844bd.jpgretrograding during the summer as well, it will be a time to gather your energies and recommit to the important directions in your life. It is a good time to contemplate your past and present so you may make the best decisions for the future. This is a fortunate moment to visualize and plan for the positive things you would like to create.

The dramatic planetary patterns that coalesced in the dynamic interlude from late May to mid-June 2021 included two powerful eclipses (May 26 and June 10, 2021) that caused the uncovering of hidden information and unexpected reversals. A Mars-Pluto opposition  brought brewing conflicts to the fore on June 5, 2021. A Saturn-Uranus square on June 14, 2021 challenged new systems to replace the old ones. And Mercury Retrograde (May 29-June 22, 2021) delivered electronic and communication confusion that will ultimately lead to higher thoughts and a more evolved reality. Real forward progress and evolution can be expected after the completion of the Mercury Retrograde two days after the Summer Solstice. And finally, a t-square between potent Mars, disciplined Saturn, and innovative Uranus culminating on July 4th will energize the change-oriented energy. There will be much to integrate in the summer season.

 

 

 

The summer months also will feature Jupiter in Pisces retrograde for 4 months, beginning just hours before the Summer Solstice. This will bring light and energy to your introspective practices, meditations, and spiritual activities. Jupiter will enter Aquarius from July 28 to December 28, 2021, and will highlight dynamic group interactions. Additionally, disciplined Saturn will be retrograde in Aquarius along with Jupiter in Aquarius, to highlight questions of the use and mis-use of governmental and corporate power. Please pray!
 

 

 

Spiritual Neptune in Pisces and transformative Pluto in Capricorn will be retrograde until this fall as well, giving you an opportunity to further discern fact from fiction, and to rewrite and reconfigure the narrative of your current circumstances. The lines between fantasy and reality may be a bit blurry at this time. Uranus in Taurus will join the backward pull in mid-August with an opportunity for rectification and reimagining of the future. Innovative Uranus will align with Saturn again at the end of the year,  preparing the way for new forms of government, self-governance, schooling, commerce, and societal interactions. It will be a time of rebirth in your own personal life.

 

The summer season will give you the opportunity to integrate all that you have learned in the last year so you may prepare your Self for further evolution and growth in the coming fall and winter seasons.

It's becoming rather apparent that trying to preserve the old way and traditions will be difficult—if not impossible—as we are now entering a phase where we will see the wisdom of creating on a higher, more conscious level rather than the seemingly easier path of clinging to the past. Some examples include the number of people who feel they are more productive working from home than in office settings, and the children (admittedly a minority) https://ci6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/-2lBSQZCu--GUmG-mDiyJFkyIcoZGC-BrrYtllKOq0yx74N8C7hdOjD1hxu7caF4vtYUqs6qQCSpZT1V-3XHVnNC7pk-sd4h32EH8Vw4_i5Lh66Gr8Y9GQ62mzvLjJHbpVaoZAZUWp7szcigh6ozuyKyLr8I4A=s0-d-e1-ft#https://mcusercontent.com/5e802a77cb5fc2fac21621baf/images/92d46451-b99f-a31c-1916-68ebce105bdb.jpgwho report that they learned better from home than in classroom settings. Many parents are pooling their resources to create home schools, online and in person, to teach their children skills they would not necessarily learn in school, such as seed-sprouting, gardening, nutrition, money management, and even astrology :-). 

There is much to be excited about as we enter a new stage of human and societal evolution. Even though the changes are revealing a dark or shadowy side of our societies around the world, the light of the revolutionary planetary alignments also are showing the way to recreate anew—on a higher level, reflecting the higher state of consciousness you are now in—compared to where we were as a group when the original plan was initiated. 

While change is disruptive, and sometimes challenging, what is about to emerge in you and the people in your life will be liberating and exhilarating, and will bring greater authenticity to your daily interactions. 

Fasten your seatbelt, make sure to meditate and introspect every day to gain greatest clarity and perspective, and prepare to move forward with courage and faith. A better, albeit different, world is about to emerge. 

Visualize yourself merging into the coming season and the coming times with grace, an open heart, lovingkindness, peace, calmness of mind, creativity, and serenity. Once you can imagine it, your powerful thoughts can begin to manifest themselves. Renew your dedication to positive thoughts, acts of lovingkindness, affirmations, and prayers as we move toward the day of greatest light!

 

Happy Summer Solstice!

With Love & Light,

Laurie

 

Please Read on for Your Personal Astrological Predictions for Every Sign:

 

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
You will be inspired to take bold steps toward your important goals w
hile Mars, your planetary ruler, traverses the fiery sign of Leo from June 11 to July 29, 202. Experiment with your creativity to find innovative solutions and ways to express the love in your heart and the vision in your mind. Mars in Virgo from July 29 to September 14, 2021, will help you refine the details. Greater relationship potentials will open up after the Autumn Equinox on September 22, 2021, when the Sun moves into your opposing sign of Libra. Along with powerful Mars in Libra from September 14 to October 30, 2021, you are bound to attract people into your life who gracefully challenge your status quo and positively catapult you to the next level of your evolution. The transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will help you refine your circle of friends so only those who are most aligned with your higher purpose remain in your circle. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to find new sources of prosperity and personal income!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
You will feel inspired to undertake a gardening, artistic, musical, or other creative project under the fiery energy of Venus in Leo from 
June 26 to July 22, 2021. You will get further creative inspiration under the influence of Mars in Leo from June 11 to July 29, 2021. The Sun  in Leo from July 22 to August 22, 2021 will further advance your creative projects. You may be staying home more than usual due to worldwide circumstances. This will give you an even greater ability to experiment with your artistic and creative nature due to the advantage of having a stable foundation to create from. The extra time you may have been devoting to other causes will potentially fuel your creativity as well.  Do not despair if a transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year has made you feel at a crossroads. This is a natural reaction to the energies pervading the planet at this time. Continue to proceed one step at a time and the new vision of what is to come will emerge toward the end of the year. You are not one to hurry, and this is a perfect time to slow down. Pushing the river may cause adverse reactions. It is best for you to practice as much stillness as possible until the waves of change subside. Then, you will be ready to proceed on firmer footing.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
When communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, completes its retrograde motion on June 22, 2021, an unresolved situation will begin to be resolved. This will give you a renewed sense of faith that everything is going to be alright in your world. A series of eclipses impacting Gemini from mid-2020 to late-2021 will prompt others to reach out to you for your needed communication talents. You have a way with words and therefore, your ability to articulate and convey important information may be called out more often than usual at this time. However, you may find yourself assuming a more behind-the-scenes role beginning in 2022. In the meantime, enjoy being in the limelight when the opportunity arises. Your positive, articulate, expressions are of immense value! A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will raise deep philosophical issues that you will need to grapple with. It is time to choose the next steps in your life with the greatest perspective and clarity.


CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
The passage of loving Venus  through Cancer from June 2 to 26, 2021 will create a positive foundation for your experience of the Sun's transition into Cancer at the Summer Solstice on June 20, 2021. T
his is your time to shine! The Full Moon in Capricorn on June 24, 2021 may challenge a long-held belief. But communicative Mercury in Cancer from July 11 to 28, 2021 will help you sort out past influences from future possibilities. Planetary energies will enable you to express your point of view so you may get your needs met. Fortunate Jupiter in the compatible water sign of Pisces until July 28, 2021 will also help to bring positive experiences into your life, especially where learning new information is involved. A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will introduce you to new companions, new ways of thinking, and deep personal realizations. The Summer Solstice starts a new annual cycle for you. Enjoy your increased energy and optimism. Use this time to apply your immense nurturing and creative energies  in innovative and healing ways!

LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Loving Venus in Leo from June 26 to July 22, 2021 will enable you to magnetize the positive people you crave and the assistance you need to fortify yourself for the next stage of your journey. Before your upcoming birthday, you will be ready to complete a project you began as long as a year ago. Choose your next steps wisely. It is more auspicious to complete what has been started than to start new projects at this time. Your efforts will be fortified while Mars is in Leo from June 11 to July 29, 2021 and while the Sun is in Leo from July 22 to August 22, 2021. This is your time to radiate all of the light that is within you!  A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year may cause you to feel you are pulled in several directions at once. If this happens, sit calmly, take a deep breath, and assess your options. Feel as if you are standing atop of a tall mountain so you can see all of your options and all of the consequences of your actions from many different angles. Choose the direction that satisfies the greatest number of your goals and desires. Various people and groups are depending upon you at this time—and it is important to you to feel you are loyal and reliable!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
You will feel ready to organize disorganized situations after Mercury turns direct on June 22, 2201. (Mercury began its retrograde in Gemini on May 29, 2021 and will remain direct until September 26, 2021, when it turns retrograde in Libra.) You will also attract greater prosperity and abundance while lucky Jupiter traverses your opposing sign of Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021, again from December 28, 2021 to May 10, 2022, and October 27 to December 20, 2022. This is an opportunity to connect with positive people who can support your creative vision. Imagine what you would like to create and reach out to like-minded others who will willingly support your efforts. There are many people who have the talents to complement your creative efforts. Energetic Mars in Virgo from July 29 to September 14, 2021 will further support you to express your creative ideas. Make sure to get plenty of rest, meditation, and contemplation interspersed with your outward actions to balance your nervous system. A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will potentially challenge your nervous system as too much information and too many choices inundate your nervous system. Try to step back, take a deep breath, and see the big picture before making decisions. A meditation routine, extra rest, drinking plenty of water, and taking extra B vitamins and minerals, will help you overcome any feelings of overwhelm or anxiety you may experience.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 23)
Loving Venus, your planetary ruler, in the fiery sign of Leo from June 26 to July 22, 2021 will inspire you to reach out to others in an unconventional way. The Sun in Leo from July 22 to August 22, 2021 will  further strengthen that ability. This is a good time to decide whether you want to concentrate on one or two important relationships at a time, or whether you would prefer to connect with a wider circle of friends and acquaintances. The latter will expose you to some new ideas and insights that could enrich your daily life even though this approach may spread your beneficence a little thin. As always in the life of a Libran, life is a fine balance. Your decisions in the coming summer season will involve choices about how to apply your energies in the world and about how far you want to extend your sphere of influence. While most people can't please all of the people all of the time, you certainly try, and you are often successful! Nonetheless, be aware of your energetic boundaries. A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will raise deep relationship issues that may not have been resolved in the past. Prayer and creative "soul-utions" serve you best at this time. "Soul-utions" involve seeing others as unique entities in their own distinct orbit who may not have the ability to follow the conventional patterns others are able to follow, and therefore, may not be able to connect as fully with you as you may prefer.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 21)
Your focus and concentration may not be as strong as usual as you feel pulled in several directions at once under the transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in the fixed sign of Aquarius and innovative Uranus in the fixed sign of Taurus. Given that Scorpio also is a fixed sign, the addition of loving Venus in the fixed sign of Leo from June 26 to July 22, 2021, energetic Mars in Leo from June 11 to July 29, 2021, and the Sun in Leo from July 22 to August 22, 2021, will create a grand cross with your Sun in Scorpio. Relationships may not be as stable and reliable as you would prefer with innovative Uranus in your opposing sign of Taurus. The best antidote is cultivating creative and unconventional partnerships that generate a channel for your immense creativity. The direct motion of communicative Mercury from June 22 to September 26, 2021 will give you a chance to explore your inner realms of thoughts, desires, and fantasies. Use the insights gleaned during periods of solitude and contemplation to become more comfortable with your inner world through the introspective tools of your choice, including journaling, counseling, contemplation, or communion with your higher self.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
You will be ready to travel and explore new places when fortunate Jupiter, your planetary ruler, travels through the experimental sign of Aquarius from July 2
8 to December 28, 2021. Use this time to discover new people and ideas if your ability to travel is curtailed by worldwide circumstances. This also is a time to cultivate your mind and your awareness of people and ideas beyond your small circle of acquaintances. It is a wonderful time to create new patterns and habits! You have a potent and creative mind. Use this power to visualize the circumstances you would like to create in your life. Project these positive thoughts into the universe and watch the positive fulfillment of your hopes and dreams come true!  A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year may occasionally jangle your nerves when your mind is flooded with too many thoughts at once. Try to step back, take a deep breath, and see the big picture you are always so proficient at perceiving. Periods of silence and contemplation will also be helpful to you during the summer season along with periods of socializing and extroverted activities.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
You may feel as if you have no choice but to change despite your best efforts to preserve the status quo during the summer season. Planetary energies focused in Capricorn during the past year have disrupted your normal routines and required that you restructure. The transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year is providing the perfect opportunity to find new ways to present yourself in the world. It's not always easy to find new people, new avenues of expression, or new sources of income,. But all of these areas are up for reconfiguration in your life in the coming year. Further, even if you are able to keep your old social contacts, old forms of expression, or income stream, this is still a time when you have the potential to create new opportunities. Accept all changes with grace and equanimity. And use your limitless resourcefulness to make new projects come to a successful conclusion. The planetary alignments of 2021 will bring out the most steadfast, reliable, creative, and capable parts of your nature!


AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You will feel fortified by the passage of disciplined Saturn through Aquarius this year along with fortunate Jupiter in Aquarius from July 28 to December 28, 2021. This is a time to restructure your organizational commitments and other outstanding associations to make your life a true reflection of your larger life goals. You are a bright soul who has many gifts to offer. Use this time to create a viable structure to express your message. A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will help you integrate altruistic concepts with technology. You may feel as if you have too many commitments at once this year. This is because it is the time to communicate your altruistic worldview to a greater number of people. The passage of energetic Mars through your opposing sign of Leo from June 11 to July 29, 2021, along with loving Venus in Leo from June 26 to July 22, 2021, and the Sun in Leo from July 22 to August 22, 2021 will help magnetize more people to you as an audience for your wisdom. 

PISCES (February 19 – March 20) 
You will feel as if all doors are opening to your future as lucky Jupiter travels through Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021, again from December 28, 2021 to May 10, 2022, and October 27 to December 20, 2022. The only caution is that Jupiter in Pisces could also inflate your expectations and cause you to feel disappointed if the inflated expectations are not met. Try to anticipate reality and align your personal forecast with what can reasonably be expected given the current world situation. All is about to improve as the negativity of the past is purified. With the greater sense of  limitations imposed by the energy of Saturn in Aquarius through early 2023, life's possibilities may be diminished in the outer world—but the sky's the limit in your highly spiritual and imaginative inner world! A transformational alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus throughout this year will help you to work out some deep inner patterns. You will find new ways of expressing your intuitions and insights. Experiment with your creativity and then share your new ideas with others—either verbally or through electronic means. You have a lot of potent wisdom to share!
