Tonight at 11:04 pm MDT the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer, marking the exact Summer Solstice Point in the northern hemisphere.
Sunrise tomorrow is the most precise moment to greet the Solstice Sun in ceremony. However, because the Sun moves so slowly at this time (literally solstice means–sun stands still), the whole weekend is a potent ceremonial window to celebrate the solstice.
For me, as I wrote in my most recent Gemini New Moon report, the Summer Solstice, through the completion of June, is a very powerful time to review our year so far, to see how we might best feed, water, and weed our cherished creations, and set our intentions for the next six months to come.
Venus, Mercury and the Divine Mother
Also tonight, Venus and Mercury are conjunct in the sign of Cancer just after sunset, at 8:57 pm MDT. You’ll want binoculars, as Mercury is hard to see. The Venus/Mercury conjunction, which in ancient Hebrew understanding signified the presence of the “Shekinah”–the feminine presence of God.
This follows yesterday evening’s occultation of Spica by the Moon. Spica, the brightest star in the Virgin Constellation, has deep ties across time and cultures to women’s mysteries and the Divine Feminine.
So it is that we are provided with a deep and profound transmission of love, nurturance, and support from the Holy Feminine–most especially the Divine Mother, tonight and through the days to come. Many of us have been feeling her presence profoundly since Venus moved into the sign of Cancer on June 2nd.
Full Capricorn Moon–Brightest Full Moon of the Year Saturday Night
I’ll be sending a complete Capricorn Full Moon Report this coming Sunday, June 23rd. The Full Moon is exact early Sunday morning. However, the BEST time to see the Full Moon, which happens to be the brightest of the year, is this Saturday night, rising immediately after sunset.
