Happy Summer/Litha Neptune Retrograde

SUMMER ARRIVES as Sun enters Zero degrees of Cancer creating SUMMER at last in Northern Hemisphere and WINTER in Southern Hemisphere!

THE LONGEST DAY OF LIGHT OF THE YEAR June 21 @ 8:54 am PDT/ 11:54 am EDT/ 3:54 pm GMT

Cancer solstice or LITHA to Wiccan pagans is the Crowning of the Sun King who embraces the Queen of Summer and begins his slow dance of death with Her. The longest night of Light in the North! Summer harvesting begins, Revel in the Light

The Summer solstice Chart Has Neptune turning Retrograde, a summer movie re-run.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon. This Summer season’s Moon is in cool as a cucumber, revolutionary, hi-tech Aquarius. Freeing ourselves up emotionally and lots of chaotic feels, hi-tech, and leveling the playing field tsunami’s are in the picture. Cancer’s begin to prepare to lock down.

There’s lots of Cancer energy. North Node our collective spiritual GPS is in Cancer Mars and Mercury too. We may feel flooded with emotions. Its good to cry and get it out.

Especially because things are so heavy in the opposite sign of the Zodiac Capricorn where Saturn and Pluto and The South Node are hunkered down together.

I’m calling these two planets in Capricorn the Bone Crushers. 

Later tonight the Moon inconjuncts Mars and Mercury in CANCER

Take some time out to reflect on your mental-emotional state. 

CANCER is all about Nurturing, nourishment, watery, emotional, sensitive, MOTHERING, MOTHER EARTH, home, security, privacy, family. Make sure you nurture yourself something that Cancer’s find hard to do. Receive for themselves. And stay hydrated. DON”T BUY WATERS IN PLASTIC BOTTLES!

ON SUMMER SOLSTICE we always do a ceremony to mark the next main quarters of the Year. Pagans, earth/nature worshippers mark 8 stations of the year.

Once centered call in the “As Above, So below, so within”  YOU.

Give thanks to Grandfather Sun for being directly overhead, for shining the longest, for casting the longest shadows on this day,

Give thanks for all things you love about summer, rapid growth, greenery, fresh food, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing long days, the cottage,fireflies, beers, cold drinks, whatever it is you like about summer, pop songs, whatever… “In the summertime when the weather is fine…. https://youtu.be/wvUQcnfwUUM

Deeper symbolism of Cancerian lead Summer is emotional security, safety, coming home. Cancer is water and water is emotions, why we are here on this earth plane, to feel, everything.

Imagine feeling, as Cancer is the deep security need of unconditional mother love, totally loved by the Great Mother Goddess in all her aspects but especially emotionally.

See, sense and feel the earth’s waters, her oceans as nourishing and sustaining all life on this planet. You are 70% water, the earth is 70% water.

Know that you are emotionally safe, protected, nurtured and loved. Sense this, feel it, know it as the blood flows through your heart and veins and arteries. The great mother pours through you in your blood, your tears, like sweat, as sexual secretions, urine as all bodily fluids. Your essence is love.

Now as the earth Pacific ocean is being radiated with Pluto- ruled Nuclear fuel from the Fukushima plant we need to send healing energy to the Ocean.

 We must give back to the mother goddess. As Japanese Dr. Emoto shows our minds can move change and heal matter, especially water.

How interesting that a Japanese Dr. brought out these findings years ago almost unconsciously knowing that we would need them now.

So send your intention to heal the Ocean, the fish, dolphins, whales, krill, seaweed, all life, as all life is dependent on the ocean which we came from.

Honor your inner sun, the light within, the light that you are, feel the Inner fire, your inner heat, Kundalini energy,

You are a micro- sun. It is YOur turn to shine brightly now. As above so below. Your turn to En- LIGHTen yourself!

Turn on the light to everyone else. The light bring consciousness to what is in the dark. The light brings warmth, heart.

Be thankful, be grateful. Vow to be en LIGHT ened more and more.  Light has triumphed. In the Tarot the SUN is the # 19.

Meditate on the Sun, the source of all life on this planet. Nothing could live on this planet if the Sun weren’t 83 million miles away, very close. A perfect distance.

Meditate on the perfection of the Universe, That all is Light, even the darkness is part of the Light, that the Universe is  UNI =one.

Place your hands on your heart, meditate on one Light, One LOve. Yeah yeah it’s a Bob Marley song.  

I will be more conscious, as consciousness is Light, Illumination. Vow to LIVE THE LIGHT. Live  Lightly on this planet. Let your Light shine! Live your light!

BE still and meditate on Light. When finished thank the directions from East to North for being present in your ritual.

And dismiss them into their directions with love and light. Then dance, sing, Here comes the Sun, In the Summertime, Summer in the city, summertime, I like New York in June, who doesn’t like Gershwin?  etc..

The embody your power earth trine

The TAURUS Moon brings that bovine love of slowing down, chew the cud, smell the roses and enjoy all  the beauty of living on the material plane. 

This is time to indulge in sensuous pleasures. That’s Taurus’s forte.

                             

OoThe Moon trines PLUTO in CAPRICORN @ 12:08 pm PDT/3:08 pm EDT/ 7:08 GMT

It’s time to feel your soul power. To joyfully revel in the easy way we can feel in our bones that the body and soul are one. No need to intellectualize it, question it or worry in existential angst. This is a beneficial aspect so use it well. 

PLUTO is going to be squared by VENUS in ARIES on the 25th 

This is another profound round of Cardinal Crosses at 19+ degrees of CAPRICORN. VENUS in ARIES is impatient, firstly, spontaneous and hates to be bossed around. Venus rules women of course, the economy, which appears to be growing on the surface. Venus is square to Pluto as she is at her greatest elongation from the Ssun as a beautiful morning star now. she embarks on a new journey. Pluto is continuing to break up old corporate structures, and world business, Pluto uncovers that which is secretive, clandestine, and shadowy up to the surface. Secret money and power deals are being revealed. In broad Daylight, it’s all over the news. 

If you have planets at 16-22 degrees of ARIES and CAPRICORN you are being impacted most directly, this is time to re-evaluate your values, and career goals. Are you doing what you love to do? Re-evaluate your relationships, and  your financial security and long term plans. 

Pluto usually destroys to make way for new growth in a pretty debeststing way. This is time to do your deep psychological detective work into your own shadows. It’s easier for us to forge new territory in making the shadow a source of riches rather than self-sabotage. 

The Taurus moon makes an Inconjunct to Saturn in SAGITTARIUS late at night and into the next day in EDT and GMT 

The urge for going versus the urge to stay comfy and cozy is what this is about. You may have difficulty sleeping or experience disturbing dreams. 

We are slouching towards the New Moon in GEMINI on the 25th @ 12:44 pm PDT/ 3:44 pm EDT and 7:44 GMT,  I’ll write about this later.
