Summer of Love 2017, Summer Solstice

Summer of Love, 1967-2017, astrology, tara Greene

Yes, it is the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, Scott Mackenzie “be sure to wear some flowers in your hair” San Francisco Haight-Ashbury Pied Piper song. The Summer of Love also begins again, June 20th 9:24 pm PDT / June 21 @ 12:24 am EDT/ 4:24 am GMT on Solstice. We sure could use it. “gentle people with flowers in their hair.” “There’s a whole generation with a new explanation. Summertime will be a Love In there.” 

SOLSTICE is one of the 4 major turning points in the Year. Yes, it’s Winter Solstice down under, so you Ozzies down there are having the Winter of Love. 

As the SUN hits the Tropic of Cancer at 23+ degrees North we are initiated into a new cycle. Do set aside time to sit in ritual and ceremony. Meditate and stop and think about what the first half of 2017 brought you. Put out your intentions for the rest of 2017 at this time.

Why is it the Summer of LOVE 2017?

VENUS in TAURUS sextiles {60 degree aspect} NEPTUNE Retro. and creates a FINGER OF GOD to JUPITER in LIBRA; exact June 20 @ 14+ degrees this affects the Soulstice.

NEPTUNE turns Retrograde June 16 @ 14 degrees 16 minutes of PISCES.

Neptune rules PISCES so its’ Station RETROGRADE here is very powerful. PISCES energy is guiding us to be our essential spiritual, compassionate, creative natural selves. We are expanding into the oceans of unboundedness and into the dream world. Neptune in Pisces seeks the soul mate, the Beloved, peace, compassion, and Oneness. 

Pay attention to your dreams around the station. Neptune Retro will take us all back into dejavueing our dreams. LSD Flashbacks may reoccur. 

Neptune is the “higher octave” of earthly lover Venus. Venus at the 15th and most powerful degree of the sign of its rulership is also extremely strong now. Venus in Taurus loves the earth plane and feels it is the Garden of Eden to be thoroughly and sensuously enjoyed. The sextile of Venus with NEPTUNE brings out our desire for erotic soul connection and earthly desire fusing into one powerful urge to merge into the All. 

VENUS rules LIBRA, where Jupiter is, so it is the final dispositer of this aspect. This means that Venus has the final say, and in Taurus you betcha as she is very stubborn and unbudgeable. 

 ” And we’ve got to get ourselves back to the Garden.” Yes Joni Mitchell wrote that song for Woodstock and she was a genius artist, and all geniuses tap into the future. 

Garden of Eden, Bosch, Summer of Love, Tara Greene, astrology

We need to be in nature. We need to indulge our 5 senses. By smelling, feeling, touching and tasting every ounce of earthly desire and pleasure we awaken our 6th sense too.  By touching tasting and feeling the earth plane in lovemaking and in our daily lives we realize that there is no separation between soul, spirit and the physical plane. 

The inconjunct, or quincunx aspect of Venus and Neptune to Jupiter in LIBRA which forms the Finger of God or YOD aspect further expands this desire. We want more soul mate love, more beauty, harmony, creativity, relationships, peace, and balance. 

But the inconjunct is a difficult aspect, as Jupiter over expands and can be too superficial in Libra focussed on the bling and social status which means nothing on the spiritual plane. Jupiter is notorious for being all talk as well.  Simply let VENUS in TAURUS lead your spirit and soul.

Venus is conjunct the Moon in Taurus at 18 degrees at Solstice and is also involved in the Yod aspect.  The MOON governs Cancer. Just fully feel your feelings and follow them. The need to nest, to nurture self and others is very strong. Find solace in your physical and emotional body.  

Saturn is opposed to Mercury at the 29th degree of GEMINI.

They had their exact opposition on Father’s day June 18th. Mercury enters CANCER five hours after the Solstice. It is easier to be serious, grounded and set your goals higher. 

Mars at 10 degrees CANCER squares JUPITER in LIBRA and NEPTUNE in PISCES

Angry suppressed feelings are simmering below the surface. Mars is OUT OF BOUNDS until June 30th and there is a renegade aspect to Mars now. Mars governs rage, war, killing, fires, danger, and defenses. Notice the London fire and Republican shootings over the last couple of days. Mars in Cancer is really submerged in the feminine in the womb and not strong. Mars in Cancer would be happy to be in a fallout shelter waiting out the nuclear war with 20 years of provisions. Mars in Cancer also makes us defend our families, our home turf, our homeland. The need to nurture others is also strong. Your tummy may be especially sensitive while Mars is in Cancer and O.O.B. The pressure is to stay balanced and see tings from an unconditionally loving perspective.

GRAND FIRE TRINE of SATURN in SAGITTARIUS, URANUS and ERIS and ATHENA in ARIES and the NORTH NODE conjunct VESTA in LEO

This positive fire trine empowers us to play the game of existence as a role, as a fun game. It’s time to be upbeat, optimistic and march to your own drummer and no one else’s. Invest your soul and spirit into doing what you love. Dance, sing, make art, make love, Life is a party. Be the leader you are, it’s easier to be courageous. ROAR. Follow our passion and your bliss. So what makes you feel happy is the bottom line. Use it to seek higher education, travel, study, teach and build bridges.

This is a rare GRAND FIRE TRINE, use it well. It’s officially in effect until the first week of July.  Trines have a 5-degree orb. The Grand Trine begins again September 27 until the end of October. 

There is a FINGER OF GOD which I’ll talk about separately.

JUNO conjunct PLUTO in CAPRICORN trines VENUS and the MOON in TAURUS

This is a lovely powerful combination bringing down the Divine Feminine energies. Juno’s symbol is the peacock. Like the Hindu Goddess Saraswati, Goddess of the Arts, she is like Venus too. I believe that JUNO, whose symbol is an 8-armed “magic wand” is the Feminine form of Genius. This aspect brings on strong feminine worldly power, wealth and environmental consciousness. Women must step forwards as corporate and world leaders to protect the arts, to protect the children, the earth, her mineral rights and Nature’s sovereignty. 

Chiron, the wounded healer is Squaring Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in GEMINI

We must still be very responsible, sensible and mindful in our communications. Speak your truth if you have been a victim of spiritual, emotional, sexual or physical abuse. The Bill Cosby rape accusation trial is taking longer with Mercury in Gemini to come to one final conclusive decision. Expect to hear more about pizzagate, world wide sex trafficking, pedophile priests and abuses of children at al levels. This is a huge issue and won’t go away. This is a time of great healing as all the shadows of corruption, past karma, addictions, delusions, illusions, and false teachings are being exposed.
