JUNE 21ST –SUMMER SOLSTICE, SUN ENTERS CANCER AT 12:04AM CDT - by Cathy Lindsey
At the exact time of the Summer Solstice, 12:04am on June 21st, I gave a talk on the Astrological Energies of the Summer Solstice during a conference phone call. Many people joined together at the exact time of the portal opening to be a part (connecting over the phone) of the Summer Solstice event! The energies of the Summer solstice last for 3 months. Below is a summary of what I said: In Gratitude to all that joined together on the call.
The Summer Solstice (In the Northern Hemisphere) happens when the Sun reaches its most northerly point in the Sun’s apparent cycle around the Earth. The Sun seems to stand still for about 3 days. It is the longest day of the year, and it happens when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer. The Summer Solstice has been honored throughout history with celebrations, parties, picnics, music, and gathering together outside, to honor Spirit, the Sun, the Earth and all creation. The Chart of the Summer Solstice is like a symbolic map of the energies that will be playing out over the next 3 months.
Solstices function as energetic gateways. The Summer Solstice also opens a portal to the Universe. Each solstice provides a wider portal, for the down loads that are accelerating humanity’s evolution, and moving us into the “new” that we are co-creating. It is a time to open up to all the knowledge and energetic upgrades that are coming down to us from the Universe through this portal. Open up and ask to receive all the knowledge and activation's that are being sprinkled down on us. It is time to be still and Listen!
We have been through a lot of urgent, changes and transformations recently. On April 25th we had a Scorpio Lunar Eclipse, on May 9th a Taurus Solar Eclipse, on May 20th the 3rd out of 7 exact Cardinal Square’s, and on May 25th a Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse. We have been activated by 3 Eclipse’s (an extra one this year) and the exact Cardinal Square all within a 4 week period. It was like we were hit again and again and again with very transformative energies. The Universe is speaking loudly! We need to move in order to grow. It is time to take a step, any step, just move. The universe is getting serious. The “Shift” started in 2010, and hit a peak December 21, 2012 and now we are in the last few years before the Cardinal Square pulls away and we will no longer have the energy of change, transformation, birthing of New, and Urgency behind us to help push us to move and grow! So during that 4 week period of activations……seeds were planted in our consciousness and sub-consciousness, and now we have to help them grow. They will begin to sprout and grow over the next several months. The Universe is now asking us to honor and internalize the changes and transformations that we have been going through, and/or witnessing and send healing, nurturing and loving energies from the Heart, as we grow… while we are co-creating the “New.”
Now we move into the Summer Solstice and the most important thing about this Summer Solstice is the planet Jupiter. Jupiter is sitting right with the Summer Solstice Sun. Jupiter (higher learning religions and philosophies, questing for knowledge, master teachers, expansion, optimism and Joy) is bringing all its gifts to be seen brightly, as it sits with the Cancer Solstice Sun. Cancer’s energy is about Nurturing, the Big mother, healing, intuition, family, home, home ownership clan, security, early child hood, good food, and mother love. The Sun is our life force. Put that all together and we have a very nurturing, loving, and joyful Summer Solstice.
The Solstice Cancer Sun and Jupiter are also sitting on the star Betelgeuse in the constellation Orion. Betelgeuse when activated in history has been associated with disasters….mainly weather related, earthquakes, tsunami’s etc., and it also was activated by the moon when the first plane hit the North Tower on 9-11. Because the Solstice Sun and Jupiter are sitting on Betelgeuse in the Summer Solstice chart, it is a time, over the next few months, to be careful and cautious, especially where weather is concerned. However the constellation of Orion itself has been honored and used by the ancient indigenous peoples for knowledge and guidance throughout history. The universe has activated, at the Summer Solstice, this Ancient Star System of Orion, therefore activating in our DNA, and our cellular memory, the ancient knowledge and energies of a time when communication and healing methods were shared.
Also Jupiter and the Solstice Sun are activating the Galactic Center by opposition. At the Winter Solstice the Male energy of Capricorn is honored and at the Summer Solstice the female energy of Cancer is honored and the 2 are in opposition. The goal of an opposition is to bring into Balance the 2 sides. The fact that Jupiter (high knowledge and Spiritual knowledge, optimism and joy) is sitting with the Cancer (healing, nurturing) Solstice Sun (life force) the Universe is Speaking loudly about bringing the feminine & Male, the Yin and Yang, the right brain & left brain, etc. into balance so that we can heal ourselves, and Mother Earth. By questing for the higher knowledge on all levels, we will learn more about all forms of natural healing and how to heal our families and communities so that the life force on Earth can grow. Bringing it all into balance as there is no one thing or person that is any better than anyone or anything else. We all have gifts to present and share. When we start to see the many things that we need and can bring into balance in the world, Earth, humanity, and ourselves, we can then fully live in optimism and Joy!
The Solstice Cancer Sun/Jupiter has also now joined up with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces to form a Grand Water Trine that will last throughout the summer as Jupiter formally moves into Cancer on June 25th . A grand trine occurs when 3 planets form an equilateral triangle in the zodiac The energy in a Grand Trine is very harmonious! With a Grand trine in Water, the harmonious energy can be very flowy .
This Grand Water Trine is speaking loudly about the Heart!! The energy right now is very watery….. Water represents intuitiveness…healing…love…gentleness. This Grand Water Trine is speaking loudly about the Heart!! The Heart becoming the new brain. Think with the Heart……see with the Heart…..communicate with the Heart! The Universe is speaking loudly with This Grand Water Trine that includes the Solstice Sun. Coming from the Heart is now emphasized as a major part of our Life force. Watery Heart energy is the major theme now for the whole summer. It is time to become one with it…pushing it away will not work now. Remember your brain in no longer the leader.….the Heart is. It is really important now to respond with the wisdom of your Heart!
Follow your emotions, your intuition, your guidance….all of which will continue to grow within you, as we experience this summer’s Grand Water Trine. Life is about Heart choices…your heart knows what is good for you in all types of relationships. The more you are in your Heart the smoother, and faster your evolution and transition into the “new” will be. The “new” is about oneness……coming from the heart, where others are concerned, is a road we must take on the journey to oneness!
The Summer Solstice happens 2 days before the Super Full Capricorn Moon, therefore the 2 events will be sharing the same energies. Use these energies of the Summer Solstice over the next 3 months to connect with your guidance and meditate on all that was shared……above all Listen!! Go outside and walk barefoot on the Earth feel and honor her energy. It is a time to manifest and create the “new” and the beautiful world we want it to be.
