Embrace Your Mid-Year Magic 💫
Today, at 7:57am PT / 10:57am ET the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer, and with it sets the tone and energy not only for the following month, but also heralds the Solstice – the Summer Solstice in the N. Hemisphere and Winter Solstice in the south.
Imagine for a moment, the Solstice in Cancer symbolized as a nourishing Soul garden, where you tend to the seeds of your inner being.
You plant your intentions, cultivate your self-care, and water the roots of your spiritual growth.
As the sun shines upon the garden, your intentions bloom, offering you a rich harvest of self-awareness, compassion, and personal transformation.
It’s the perfect time (IMHO!) to embrace this transformative energy for a mid-year reset, and to join me in crafting a vibrant and inspiring summer “Bucket List” brimming with goals and intentions – infused and inspired by astrology. 📝
(That was a gentle plug for my upcoming event this Saturday in case you missed it. 😁)
Okay, now on to the energy and meaning of this celestial event.
The Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It occurs in the zodiac sign of Cancer and this year it is also accompanied by the transit of both Venus (the planet that influences, and brings to light, what you love and value in this world) and the Moon in fiery Leo – which holds for each of us spiritual meanings related to our emotions, nurturing, creative self-expression, passion and love.
Here are five spiritual themes that embrace the energies of the Sun in Cancer and the Moon and Venus in Leo:
Emotional Renewal: The Summer Solstice in Cancer signifies a time of emotional renewal and introspection. The presence of Venus and the Moon in Leo urge you to connect with and express your deepest emotions, heal any emotional wounds, and nurture your emotional well-being.
Nurturing and Self-Care: Cancer is associated with the archetype of the mother and represents nurturing, care, and protection. It is an opportune time to nurture yourself, engage in self-reflection, and practice self-love.
Creative Expression and Passion: The Moon and Venus transiting Leo also add a heightened focus on creativity, self-expression, and passion. This alignment supports you in embracing your unique talents, expressing yourself creatively, and pursuing your passions with enthusiasm. It encourages you to tap into your inner creativity and allow it to shine brightly, igniting a sense of joy and fulfillment.
Love and Relationships: The presence of Venus, the planet of love and relationships, signifies a time of deepening emotional connections, strengthening relationships, and experiencing love in its various forms. It encourages you to open your heart, express love freely, and cultivate harmonious relationships based on trust, authenticity, and passion.
Spiritual Awakening and Alignment: Put all of these energies together and this alignment offers a potent opportunity for spiritual awakening and alignment. It invites us all, you, me to connect with our inner selves, embrace our true essence, and align our actions with our spiritual values.
It encourages us to step into our personal power, embrace our unique identity, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth.
As you immerse yourself in the magic of the Summer Solstice and embrace the spirit of intention, may your summer “Bucket List” become a guiding light, illuminating your path with purpose, joy, and growth.
With good energy,
