The Summer Solstice is by nature a watery event because the Sun is moving in the Cardinal, water sign of Cancer. This year we have an abundance of other planets and asteroids in water signs. Mercury and Venus will be in an exact conjunction in 22 degrees Cancer at the Solstice. This is a great time for writing love sonnets and poems if you are so inclined - or just putting pen to paper or ink to paper if you are more artistic. The wordsmith-ability of Mercury combined with the artistry of Venus makes this a perfect time to communicate with words or art.
Other bodies in Cancer will be Vesta and Ceres. The first is the goddess of devotion and the later is the goddess of nurturing and they are both in the sign of mother. Once you put the sonnet down you can work on finding the cause that you can devote yourself too. What feeds your soul? What feeds your desire?
Hey why not combine all of these water signs and sit down and make a list of things that you need to do or want to do - that will nurture your spirit.
Cardinal signs are the doers, the leaders, the ones who get things done. The Sun energy and all of these other very powerful planets and asteroids should give you the energy to take on these projects. Where am I go - what do I want - what feeds me?
Neptune is, of course, still in Pisces, it's natural ruler -and Saturn is in Scorpio --- water, water everywhere. Once you make that list - use these two to put some structure - some design behind your spiritual, devotional practices.
The Solstice is a time for new beginnings! Enjoy
