Summer Solstice Cosmic Chronicle – June 2017
News Flash! Exceptional planetary energy is finally allowing home, family and finances to be our positive focus through July 20th! We haven’t had this kind of good news in a long time. Mars will be traveling through Cancer from June 4th – July 20th, and Venus will be moving through Taurus from June 6th – July 4th. Our finances and lives will get even better when Jupiter (the money planet) zaps and turbo charges Mars, Cancer, Venus and Taurus after June 9th. Wow! We’ll get all kinds of projects finished, and have the money to do them! LOL!
Moving forward; there will be a Full Moon in fire sign, Sagittarius, on June 9th. The Sun will move into the water sign, Cancer, on June 21st. Summer Solstice on June 21st is celebrated with bon fires, it’s the longest day with daylight for the year, and, the first official day of summer. After we get past that party, there will be a New Moon in the water sign, Cancer, on June 23rd.
Sun Facts: The Summer Solstice (Litha) (June 20th – 23rd) and the Winter Solstice (Yule) (December 21st) literally divide the year. The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of sunlight for the year. After the Winter Solstice, our days appear to get longer thus working towards the sun’s peak of daylight and power at Summer Solstice, then the cycle begins again as our days appear to get shorter. The ancients observed that the sun appeared to rotate in a circle, like a wheel. So, that’s where the term “Wheel of the Year” originated.
Tis the season for June weddings! But, where did the notion of a June bride come from? Well, it dates back to the Roman Empire and the June 1st festival celebrating the marriage of Jupiter to his wife Juno (the Goddess of Marriage and Childbirth). Even the term “honeymoon” has Celtic origin. It refers to the first moon (honey moon) after the summer solstice. As time evolved, the term “honeymoon” meant “time following the wedding,” no matter which month the couple wed. Now you know. LOL!
