The week begins on an aggressive, competitive note. People want to get ahead. People want to be first. There is an assertive tone to everything. If you find that your temper is heating up, remember the ole standby of long deep breathing. Also keep in mind that the Moon is waning this week. As a result, our emotional reserves are dwindling Go easy on yourself and others. Also take note that at 3:42pm EST (12:42pm PST), the Moon goes void-of-course and suddenly our intuition is lost. For the next couple hours don’t make any major decisions or plans.
The big news on Tuesday is the Sun’s entrance into Cancer, marking the official Summer Solstice (Pacific). This is the longest day of the year for those in the Northern Hemisphere. From now until the Winter Solstice, the days will be getting shorter; but for now, the days are nice and long. Also take note that the Cancer Sun brings a bit of moodiness and sensitivity all around. This will be the background energy vibrating for the next four weeks. The water element is highlighted. Take warm baths and enjoy time by the ocean, a lake or streams.
In celebration of the Summer Solstice this year, you may want to treat yourself to the beautiful album by Mirabai Ceiba Night in Ram Das Puri. This gorgeous collection of two 31-minute mantras transports you to that magical land where the Kundalini Yogis gather at this powerful time of year. Hold on to that incredible healing energy all year long by resonating with these mantras, Guru Guru Wahe Guru and Ajai Alai to manifest love, healing, miracles and prosperity in your life.
For those on the East Coast, technically the Summer Solstice is on Wednesday, occurring in the early morning hours just after midnight. For the most of the day itself, let the buyer beware! The Moon is void-of-course all day until 6:44pm EST (3:44pm PST) when the Moon gets back on track in the sign of Gemini. As a result, use this day to focus on menial tasks and routine duties. It’s not a great day to go into work and make big decisions or hold strategy meetings. If possible, don’t even go to work at all. Want an excuse to stay home and lie in bed and read a book? You’ve got it!
Thursday’s energy is buzzing! People are talking. They want to know the scoop. The switchboard operators are jammed as communications are coming fast and furiously. You may find yourself networking with many different people in different areas of your life. As a result, you may be wearing many different hats. Connect the dots. Make those important contacts, and catch up on voice mails, emails, and regular mail. There is plenty to do. Don’t go deep into any one topic or point of view. Just get the job done, send the message, and move on to the next task.
The big news on Friday is the New Moon in Cancer – the day that the Moon and the Sun are together in the same sign. The masculine and feminine polarities are joined. They see eye-to-eye. This is a good time to connect with those of the opposite sex and clarify things. The Cancer energy is encouraging you to embrace your motherly, nurturing instincts. Be a good listener. New Moons are times of new beginnings. Start new cycles into motion. Let go of what no longer serves you. Let go of grudges and start fresh. If you are thinking of starting a 40-day meditation, or new diet, this is the day to do it.
This sensitive, nurturing energy continues on Saturday thanks to the fact that the Moon continues to linger in her home sign of Cancer. Our intuition is extra strong. Pay attention to that voice in your head. It is trying to tell you something. Be good to yourself.
Pamper yourself and others on Sunday morning. Sleep in and have a lovely brunch with those you love. Join together with your spiritual community and celebrate your common love and devotion for the divine. Take it easy in the afternoon. Enjoy a festive, celebratory atmosphere tonight.
