SUMMER arrives in the Northern Hemisphere Saturday June 21 2014 @ 3:51 am PDT /6:51 am EDT/ 10:51 am GMT
and if you live North of the 49th parallel you know what kind of a HELLISH friggin freezing cold POLAR VORTEX winter we had which went on for about 7 months. SUMMER can’t come any moment too soon. It has still been well below average temperatures in Toronto. Although we do get a day over 16 hours long on the Summer Solstice -and only 8 hours long on the Winter one. BTW Toronto is at 79.24 43.42. It’s gotten bigger since I was born here.
Winter begins South of the EQUATOR in South America where the FIFA WORLD CUP is being played in Brazil.
Happy Winter solstice to you.
Inspirational Card of the Day
APOLLO the SUN
SUMMER SOLSTICE had been celebrated since time out of mind as a time when the SUN KING- APOLLO or HELIOS as the Greeks called him, peaks and dies and the Goddess Time of growth, fertility, nurturing expands. The SUN touches the TROPIC of CANCER and marks Summers beginning in the North. In SIDEREAL Astrology the Sun doesn’t reach the Constellation of CANCER until July 16. SYNCHRONICITY and Jupiter enters Tropical LEO on that day.
The chart looks the same for both North and South countries event though they magnetically relate to different poles.
the INGRESS charts for each season are considered to be charts one can use for divination for the next 3 months.
Let’s check it out shall we?

Set for WASHINGTON D.C. the ASCENDANT is at 14 degrees of CANCER which is exactly where the U.S. SUN is and the FIXED STAR Sirius, the soul of Ancient Egyptian Goddess ISIS.
Because the SUN is conjunct to Mercury which is RETROGRADE and on the NORTH STAR- see previous article -and opposite the Galactic Center this indicates a great time to follow the Highest intellectual view while being firmly rooted in a Galactic spiritual perspective. That’s means bigger than small-minded stuff-like you and me as well as a county’s ego’s.
The next three months will be review time. We wont be ready to advance till Autumn Equinox on September 22 with PLUTO turning DIRECT on that date and a NEW MOON the next day.
If you would like to join me in welcoming AUTUMN in the Northern Hemisphere in ceremony I will be in SEDONA ARIZONA once again to celebrate on the 22 and the NEW MOON on the 24th. Life will look totally different by then.

We are still in the last of the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS ENERGY
MOON in ARIES- IMPULSIVE FEELINGS an emotional storm.
The Moon always symbolizes the prevailing MOOD of the people.
indicating a time of new impulsive feelings and emotions, fast launches, quickened feelings, new passions, new intuitive inspirations and a warning against rash impulsive decision-making.
PEOPLE will be IMPATIENT, RUDE, angry, THIS IS a WAR FARE EMOTIONAL state, Vigilante tones, frustrated emotions, moon in Aries also has to do with women being RAPED- we have seen this issue coming up strongly in the world news and it will continue to do so.
MOON is CONJUNCT URANUS, square to Jupiter in Cancer, opposite MARS in LIBRA and square to PLUTO in Capricorn which is
DIRECTLY opposite the U.S. SUN as it has been for months now. Pluto is Retrograde till September 22.
The grenade has been unpinned and in the hand of a revolutionary militant fascist, Islamist Fundamentalist, etc etc. A time fraught with even more chaos, violence, revolutionary change, war, conflict, battle, explosions. Mars in LIBRA will attempt to be diplomatic but is weakened in Libra by being debilitated. America is under very intense energies to die and be reborn. Just like that Lana Del Ray song- We are born to die. It’s Very philosophical.
JUPITER in CANCER in the 1st house at 24 degrees. Jupiter is in his final Cancerian swim now. But his presence is exalted in Cancer and Jupiter has buoyed up the economy- although bloated may be a better word to describe it. Jupiter inflates whatever he touches. Jupiter in Cancer is too much of the old America Rah rah rah, MOM and apple pie and homeland security and security surveillance. Too much ego, too much eating and consuming and hiding -barricading oneself in one’s home out of fear,because of emotional needyness. Lots of emotional high tides, water storms, and flooding in the weather. Very fertile time for women. Everyone needs more emotional security.
SATURN is RETROGRADE at 17 degrees SCORPIO in the 5th house
intense obsessive emotional ruthlessness and power struggles over children, teen pregnancies, birth control, abortion, social support. Saturn is fear and depression, suicide. This can be a reviewing of mental health needs for teens. Symbolized hiding one’s light and love in the darkness and shadows.
The 5th house is creative self- expression,. The need to support more arts directly as a health means to explore the dark side of the psyche. Expressive arts therapies.
VENUS at 27 degrees Taurus on the Pleiades, in the 11th house
The famed 7 sisters; VENUS rules TAURUS and so we are seeing a BULL MARKET for now. Taurus rules all the earthy values, minerals, food, gold, oil in a loose extent. Venus in Taurus indicates our need to get reconnected to the land, to growing our own food, to being in touch with our bodies. Venus in Taurus is a sensual, body conscious and body care, romantic time. Women are revelling in their own sensuality. The Pleiades is also the place of Higher intelligent benevolent E.T.’s. A good time to meditate on these entities.Venus in Taurus also makes art, appreciates fine wine, food, music, singing. In the 11th this is public art, community oriented creativity, Do something to beautify your neighbourhood.
DWARF PLANET ERIS- like MALEFICENT is conjunct the SOUTH node and the MOON
they are bunched together within 5 degrees of each other in ARIES. A sense of a woman scorned, a GODDESS scorned, revenge and a plot that was planted in a previous round. An unconscious will to fight, to break-through to challenge the old order. Women and mothers are mad about not being able to be free to live their lives under their our autonomy.
CHIRON IN PISCES is Retrograde and in a GRAND WATER TRINE with Saturn Retrograde and Jupiter
This is a very HEALING transit. Saturn in Scorpio is FIERCE, obsessive and never forgets. Its SHADOW contents may be deeply held or consciously forgotten but the cellular memories which are housed in every cell of one’s body holds the healing keys. Embracing your pain and suffering and flowing with it, this Water trine will make it easier. Intuitive healing is also favoured. Listen to your feelings. CHIRON in PISCES is the last call for letting go. Let it go. I won’t put :LET IT GO on as a Video though.
Using Astro-Cartography which predicts activities for various cities and places according to the Planetary lines crossing them and the energies which the planets govern.
MARS is on the Ascendant of Israel, South Africa, Turkey and on the Russia/Ukraine border.
Pluto is on the roots of Cairo and Kiev, and runs through Africa right through Durban South Africa. Pluto is Descending through New York and eastern U.S. Pluto is Ascending through Japan and Indonesia. Mars and Uranus crosses Guyana, Bolivia, directly South through Buenos Aries.
Neptune runs right through Minneapolis, North and South right through to the Gulf and to East of Mexico City and Guatemala. Saturn is strong in Pakistan and eastern Australia. URANUS and Mars run through Shanghai and the Philipines.
The Sun and Mercury cross right in Cuba indicating an opening and expansion there.
