Astrology During Cancer

    The Sun enters the sign of Cancer on June 20th at 1:52 p.m., Mountain Time. Cancer is a water sign and is associated with the Moon. This is the Zodiac sign of family, food and community. They are nurturing, protective, sensitive, sympathetic and maternal. The sign of Cancer is also emotional, defensive and possibly needy. A typical occupation includes being a chef, collector, gardener, historian and microbiologist. If you want to put on a potluck party, invite your Cancer friend to help.

    The sign of Cancer always marks the Summer Solstice. There are four turning points of seasons in the year. The order is the Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice. The Sun rises due east and sets due west on both of the Equinoxes. Notice how far north the Sun is setting now! The Sun rises and sets far south during the Winter Solstice.

    The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Celebrations occur all around the world honoring the Sun, as well as the light within. Stonehenge was built as an early computer to define where and when the Sun aligns at all the seasons.

    The major astrological event this month is Jupiter entering Gemini. Jupiter has a twelve-year orbit, so he will be in Gemini until June 2025. Jupiter loves being in Gemini and will bring new styles of communication and brilliant ideas. Stand up tall and speak your mind!

    In addition, Jupiter is forming a strong trine, or blue line, to Pluto in Aquarius. They both just entered these new signs, which makes them much stronger. When a planet enters a new sign, it’s like flinging open the door to the sign and announcing itself with a loud voice. Jupiter and Pluto are supporting each other now. This is a powerful time to be authentic and shine. Be confident and have a strong voice.

    Regarding the visible planets, we can see Jupiter, Mars and Saturn in the pre-dawn sky. Mercury and Venus are still too close to the Sun to be seen in the evening sky now, but Venus will be emerging as the “evening star” quite soon.

    See you next in Leo.
