Well, this is an action packed Cosmic week as we enter the last part of June! No less than six planets are in retrograde movement, re tracing degrees of the zodiac. We have the trickster planet Mercury doing so, on 18th June until 12th July, encouraging us to think outside the box and re visit decisions, re edit things and re connect. Try using the part of the brain which links with intuition, patterns, imagination more.
On Saturday 20th June there is the summer solstice at 22.44 – the longest day following on 21st – and an opportunity to renew our light and power. There is a new moon solar eclipse the next morning at 7.41 am. This solar eclipse in Cancer on 21st June births new emotional approaches and encourages big inner and outer change. Time to adjust, and have new beginnings as well as loosening old ties and thoughts which no longer serve us. Home, belonging and nostalgia are areas of focus now. How can we find that in ourselves as well as outside?
Eclipses can tire our physical and nervous bodies and we can feel off kilter, so do get more rest especially over this coming weekend. It is a powerful time of recharging and re aligning and not a useful time to rush ahead or burn out! Gentleness towards self and others is key to health and wisdom now. Your dreams will be more significant at this time as well!
The next six months are strongly influenced by this eclipse and its fellow lunar eclipses either side of it. How you use this coming week sets the stage for new healthy beginnings and growth. Here is a look at where the eclipse and summer solstice connect with YOUR horoscope!
