Today in my part of the northern hemisphere it is the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year. The Sun enters Cancer at 4:09 PM PDT and the days will gradually grow shorter once more. Supporting the Cancer Sun is a gentle, non-intrusive trine to Neptune in Pisces and a free floating Moon in Cancer. Despite the rumblings from the Uranus-Pluto square, we will still be able to see the sweet in our lives as well as the challenges.
Speaking of those challenges, the Solstice chart indicates a full out assault may not be the best approach after all. That is because water and earth are the dominate elements, not fire and air. Uranus in Aries is the sole representative of fire in the chart! A tactful, indirect, non-threatening manner will serve us well over the next six months . . . if we can remember to use it.
All of you Cancer folk with your Suns in the earliest degrees are going to catch a break after two years of feeling batted about by fortune. Whilst you do have the exact Uranus-Pluto square, you also have Neptune soothing your Sun and a helpful sextile between Mars in Virgo and Mercury in Cancer. Sure, Saturn in Libra will be squaring Mercury but that’s not too bad . . . it will help you keep from saying things you may later regret. With Jupiter in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces, the chances of speaking out of turn are greatly increased and this aspect will affect the Solar Returns of Cancer Suns born in the first decant. After that the square will have waned enough to be less troublesome.
The best way to check out your Solar Return chart for this year and determine exactly how the Uranus-Pluto square will be affecting it is to go to astro.com. Be sure you have your current location has the reference place. I will also be happy to provide you with a free Solar Return chart (no interpretations . . .). You can send me your birth data and current location using the form on my Personal Reports page.
No matter if you are celebrating the longest day or observing the shortest one, it is always worth celebrating the great cycles. Have a lovely time!© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
