A somewhat tense Sun-Saturn aspect today is triggering themes connected with Saturn's re-entry into Scorpio (June 21, 2015 - September 17, 2015). Though the Solstice is a wonderful time to celebrate abundance and the joys of life, a need for adjustment in challenging areas of life may be evident today.
But the Universe is set to send us beautiful Solstice blessings from above! A positively magical trine between Jupiter and Uranus can lead to incredible events this week if we act on opportunities that fall into our laps. Work with the totality of these energies and you're on your way to obtaining the abundance of the Solstice in the coming months.
Its your time to shine as the sun moves into your sign, Cancer! Your natural qualities of love, compassion, and warmth are highlighted, as this time of year always brings an invigoration of your self-expression. However, this year's Summer Solstice is not without its challenges for you. There's a potential stressful re-emergence of situations related to your core identity and how that translates into romance, creative projects, or interactions with children. This may require some adjustment on your part as Saturn backtracks into your 5th House of Romance and Creativity. Think back to difficult issues that may have cropped up in these areas from 2012 - late 2014. These are the issues, insecurities, or hard life lessons that are up for you to review, revisit, and wrap up once and for all. Do you express your authentic self when getting to know a potential relationship partner? Do you let your true creative expression shine out without hesitation? Do you need to make a change in how you relate to your own children or children you interact with regularly? Saturn asks you to put solid effort into attaining mastery in creativity, to act with confidence here, and to become your own authority when it comes to that which brings you joy. This aspect could also show a need for channeling maturity in pleasure-seeking (partying, gambling, and so on) to uphold your reputation.
You're in a position to benefit from an exceptionally magical trine between Jupiter and Uranus when it comes to money and career status. These planets are clearing the way for unexpected windfalls in your 2nd House of Money and 10th House of Career. This might come via a major change in your public image (perhaps a promotion or a new job?) that opens wide the pipeline of financial abundance. It's also possible that a new relationship or business connection could lead to greater financial abundance, and may come via career connections one way or another with Venus approaching Jupiter - a reason to celebrate at the solstice, indeed!
You might experience re-emerging difficulties on the home and family front relating to elements of your inner life that you keep hidden. These issues could include insecurities, fears, addiction, or escapism - anything that is ready to come up for deep healing. You might feel called to venture deeply within your own psyche for soul-seeking that can lead to renewed peace and structures at home. Saturn has re-entered your 4th House of Home, bringing the more serious aspects of your focus back to issues that may have been prominent from 2012 - late 2014. You might also find that any difficult situations related to family dynamics and responsibilities lead to a sense of disillusionment or confusion, especially with the possibility of secrets and hidden information coming to light. With the Sun in your 12th House of Spirituality, it's a time to let go of limiting pride or ego and explore the more subjective realms of consciousness. Prayer, meditation, or retreats can quiet the mind and allow for inner guidance to emerge. The wisdom you find here can guide you in strengthening your home base, or in bringing long-standing issues to a close.
With exceptionally lucky Jupiter trining Uranus this week, you are poised to experience a renewed sense of self through opportunities that may come from long-distance travel or contact with foreigners. These are all strong possibilities with Jupiter in your 1st House of Identity and Uranus calling you to defy contention in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Learning. Less literally, opportunities may seem to fall into your lap that edify your self-concept and clear the way for higher truths to emerge. New opportunities in higher education - or anything that gets you breaking up old routines to experience foreign concepts - could lead to financial windfalls or meeting new friends or lover interests thanks to Venus preparing to meet up with Jupiter.
This year's Summer Solstice highlights the need for making adjustments in contracts and agreements in order to achieve long-term goals. As Saturn continues to backtrack into Scorpio, it will turn your focus back to potentially complex issues tied to contracts - as well as those impacting your daily activities, teaching/learning, or siblings - that might have been up for you from 2012 - late 2014. From now through mid-September, you have an opportunity to take stock of whether your current commitments are serving your bigger dreams and aspirations, and to make final decisions that best serve your interests. Is your immediate neighborhood the place you feel you really belong now? Are there re-emerging boundary issues between you and those with whom you interact with most on a daily basis? Now is the time to get serious about connecting with social groups and organizations that can help you meet your goals, or to contemplate how you can rearrange your daily affairs to not only live your dreams, but impact the human family by doing so.
There's magic in the air for you now by way of blessings that may come from hidden or unexpected sources. These may come via surprise gifts of money or inheritances from a family member or the forging of new business partnerships. With Jupiter in your 12th House of Spirituality and Uranus in your 8th House of Intimacy and Shared Resources, you might find that it is through perceived loss or letting go of old circumstances that profound possibilities present themselves. Be willing to let go and trust that the Universe has incredible things in store when you allow intuition to be your guide.
