Astrological Energies for Summer Solstice

THE SOIL OF SUMMER

Wisdom Body Notes by Samantha Cameron, June 14-28

As we stand at the threshold of summer, what are the energies you wish to embody in the coming three months?  How have you grown since the beginning of this year?  Why have you changed, and what has it served?  Who enters the Solstice portal with hope?  Who with fears?  To enter one of the year’s four major crossroads, it’s wise to pause, take stock of the past in order to change the future.  It is the deep breath that pauses action, refreshes the mind and feeds intuition. 

On June 20th, the Astrologic energies turn from lively, mental, Gemini to enter sensitive, emotional Cancer, offering a conduit of understanding in how we might nurture the emotional body from what we have learned. The Summer Solstice marks a time of planting, with high hopes for a good harvest.  The question is, what are you planting?  What seeds of hope are you investing in?  Will your harvest truly nurture you, as well as others? Transforming is a life’s work that takes place in each moment of every day, from tiny, dedicated steps that consciously decide how best to be in the moment.  Helping this ‘choosy-wisdom’ is lovely 20-20 hindsight that provides a tablescape of insight from bad choices, courageous intentions, well-planned moves, and trashy adventures. To help our onward, upward trajectory, here’s a very brief review of June’s energies that may support better summer choices.

The first week of June held the potent New Moon that set intentions and expansion of spirit and heart, along with massive solar flares triggering the release of old patterns.  The second week of Gemini-June held passionately fierce and obstreperous transformative power plays as Pluto has had a big role in Gemini’s muscle of words, ideas and manifestation.  An inherent aspect of the Gemini twins is the duality of light and dark, a ‘this not that’ challenge to mental manifestation.  Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, expresses a lightness of curiosity and diversity, interconnectedness, and the oh so important ability to change our minds.  The New Moon threshold was enriched by a Venus embrace asking we connect heart and head, to transmute the mind, therefore the heart.  We are being asked for a deeper reset of aspirations and longings. 

This past week, as in June’s first week, Pluto has been a big player.  He is an unbridled primal, ‘chthonic’ force of nature, and as such ‘he’ is Yin/feminine as is nature herself.  Pluto inhabits the underworld, ruling birth, life, and death.  We visualize the underworld as beneath, hidden and mysterious, and when digging into the myths of Pluto’s birth, we read ancient legends of the Persephone saga, who was named ‘Kore’ before she was Persephone.  Kore was a maiden goddess, complete unto herself, like our core, our heart.  Legend has it that Kore got bored and split herself in two, a benevolently kind goddess-self, and a voracious, vicious, unconscious twin, named Pluto.  I love this legend as it addresses the depth and multiplicity of the present planet we call Pluto, who offers death, and transformative life force.  He/she demands a depth of emotional focus as we learn to use the power of our will.  Will we accept and rightfully own this power, or will we use it in ‘othering’ and blame elsewhere?  We are in an era of radical responsibility, radical, meaning ‘roots. The world is shifting faster and faster, incarnating and demanding different sensibilities and choices.  We can transform when we remember to grow from our inherent nature, our chthonic, rooted force-field.

On the 11th, we had a very dynamic square of Mars, the warrior and Pluto the transformer.  These are the two power players of our zodiac, and when they talk to one another, we must listen, we must learn, we must grow as they can reveal hidden fears, infuse intention with enormous courage, awaken our life force with desires of rebirth.  This force-field directed traffic all week, pushing us hard, often through frustration and anger. What has been released? What have we learned?

Another strong player in June is old man Saturn, the mythic Reaper, who demands perfection, and structures of discipline and responsibility.  He is currently moving through Pisces, an energy of spirit, creativity, oneness, lostness and confusion.  While in Pisces, he is testing our ability to create new spiritual and creative forms, and to manifest structures from spirit as well as well-known forms.  Saturn is always a reality check, even in formless Pisces. 

June’s planetary firmament impels thinking to work from new narratives, recognizing and releasing old fears, asking hard questions, and the rational assumptions that have held us in thrall.  As the Solstice beckons onward, spend time realigning with core/Kore values, with time in nature, your own, and dear Ma’ Nature, feed the feet seeking to walk another path, the heart longing to embrace a wider world.  Pay attention to the shadowed edges as well as the light.  It is ‘time to ‘turn the page, Pilgrim’ as we enter the mystery of one of the four great turnings in the year.  There are not many sacred moments when earth actually comes to a standstill to take a breath of new life.  Open yourself to a beautiful summer harvest of soul growth.

Summer Strategies

VISUALIZE YOUR DREAM EMERGING INTO REALITY.

BREATHE DEEPLY & CONSCIOUSLY.

HOWL UNDER UNDER ANY AND ALL MOONS.

LAUGH EVERY DAY.

START OVER AGAIN.  AND AGAIN.  AND…

REFORMULATE AND PLAN THE NEXT STEP. 

WITH FULL COURAGE, LEAP OFF THE CLIFF THAT CALLS YOU.

SPEND MEDITATION/PRAYER MOMENTS WITH THE EARTH, PULLING HER BEAUTY INTO YOUR HEART.

UPDATE YOUR DIALOGUE WITH THOSE YOU LOVE, AND THOSE YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.

FEEL YOUR LIFE EXPANDING!

FOR BIRTHDAY CELEBRANTS : What a year you have for enlightening conversations, new ideas, and vibrant questioning.  You may wish to spend time reviewing communication that works, and what doesn’t in your relationships.  In growing more courageous, you will uncover sensitive skills that are a better support for you AND others.  Open time to not only listen to your intuition but improve its reception.  As intuition grabs a whole comprehension, that ‘ahaa moment’, it needs silence and peace.  Intuition works from a heart and head coalition that requires time in listening.
