Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, June 19 - Sunday, June 25
This week is Summer Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere) or Litha, another turn in the Wheel of the Year. This represents the triumphant day of the Sun, the longest day and shortest night of the year. Astrologically, Solstice is initiated when the sun moves into 0º Cancer, which will occur at 9:24pm PDT on Tuesday. So on Tuesday we’ll also enter Cancer solar cycle, and right away on Friday we’ll have our Cancer new moon, the starting point and new beginning for Cancer suns. The moon is the ruler of the sign of Cancer and bestows upon the Crab an ability to connect emotionally and a deep sensitivity. This sign rules the breasts and belly. On Wednesday in the early morning hours Mercury, the mental planet, moves into the sign of Cancer also. We’ll be swimming in a sea of feelings for a while. So if your sun or ascendant are in Cancer, this will be your week! And if you’re everyone else… enjoy Solstice. :)
