Planetary information this week: June Solstice and Ceres enters Libra


Astrological replace for the week of June 18-25, 2023

This week’s forecast might be shorter than normal as I’m touring this week. 

Summer time Solstice. This week the Solar enters Most cancers on June twenty first, marking the flip of the season from spring within the northern hemisphere to summer time. The turning of the wheel from the shortest days to the longest  is a time to have fun the triumph of sunshine over darkness. The Solar is newly in Most cancers – related to the Moon, the soul (scarab in historic Egypt) The Moon, ruler of Most cancers, is related to the harvest and the cultivation of the land. The Solar aids on this cultivation in our exterior lives, and the facility of the Moon cultivates the emotional physique and the Soul.  In esoteric research the “central solar” acts as the purpose of integration between Spirit and Matter.  On the Solstice the Photo voltaic and Lunar powers unite to gas a transformational shift.

The chart for the Solstices and Equinoxes incorporates a harmonious trine to the South Node suggesting the discharge of one thing from the previous which can have brought about blockages and stress. The signal of Most cancers could be very delicate to influences from the previous, and can possible assist us to be extra attuned to those subtleties as soon as the sunshine of the Solar begins to dim because the vitality of the Solstice begins to wane over the following couple of weeks.

In the meantime there are three planets within the joy-seeking signal of Leo, and they’re trined by Chiron for a burst of therapeutic knowledge to assist us alongside the way in which.

Ceres in Libra. We even have Ceres altering indicators on the identical day (June twenty first), coming into Libra and forming a sq. to the Solar at zero levels within the chart of the Solstice. Ceres has been shifting out and in of Libra since December, urging us to attach inside ourselves  by way of immersion in lovely environment and harmonious connections with others. The darkish aspect of Libra is ignoring our private wants for the sake of sustaining concord, and when Ceres is in Libra the impact of this sort of neglect generally is a problem. However, we will improve our sense of well-being by way of negotiating our approach by way of battle to decision and private stability.  Spending a while in environments of aesthetic concord which soothe us will even be useful.

Stationary Neptune and Neptune retrograde. Neptune has been stationary within the sky for your entire month of June, and after turning retrograde this week it would proceed to look to face just about nonetheless within the sky all through the month of July. Neptune’s affect might be magical and transformative, or it may well really feel complicated and mysterious as the tough mild of actuality turns into obscured by mists that are supposed to shift our focus from the mundane to the realm of spirit and creativeness. If we’re going by way of a difficult Neptune transit to our personal chart, this prolonged Neptunian interval might make choices tough and we’re extra susceptible to deception and phantasm since we don’t all the time see clearly with rose coloured glasses.

Throughout this Neptune station over the following couple of months it will likely be helpful to make use of our Saturnian glasses of readability to attempt to look deeply into any state of affairs that appears too good to be true. We might wish to benefit from the magic journey, but when we perceive the character of the phantasm we is not going to be disillusioned if we get up in our normal world.

Harmonious influences. This week the minor planetary alignments are principally supportive:

  • Jupiter harmonizing with Saturn for enhanced optimism and confidence in pursuing our objectives (June 19, however the impact will linger all through the week)
  • Mercury sextile Mars and Chiron, and Mars trine Chiron (principally mid-week), aiding in straightforward communication and the decision of some messy conditions which will have been inflicting some troubles.

The one probably difficult time to concentrate on is Sunday June twenty fifth, when a difficult Mercury/Neptune alignment might make specializing in sensible issues tougher, particularly because the Moon can also be concerned. Put apart any essential choices should you can, and let your creativeness and instinct run the present for a day or two.
