2019 Summer Solstice
21 June at 8.54 am PDT- 11.54 am EDT- 4.54 pm BST (summer time GMT)
2019 Winter Solstice
21 June at 10.54 am EST, Lima, Peru- 11.54pm AWST Perth, Australia
22 June at 1.54 am AEST Sydney, NSW, Australia
I awoke very early this morning to the sound of the Winged Ones singing up Grandfather Sun. It lifted my spirit and I felt so much gratitude to be living on this precious planet in this Marvelous Universe. The message was be grateful for all that is. Find the Sacred in every moment. Be present. For me that is the focus for this new season. What is yours?
Here in the Northern Hemisphere it is Summer Solstice and we enter the South Direction of our Medicine Wheel. It is the place of growth, expansion, and being guided by our intuitive knowing. It is not about what you “think” you know it is about “knowing”. The Guardian of The South is Coyote. He teaches us to be adaptable whatever we are experiencing and see the humour even in those experiences that are challenging. Coyote is the Trickster. His message is when you can laugh at yourself everything works out. He guides us until Autumn Equinox on Sept 23
In the Southern Hemisphere this is Winter Solstice. You enter the North Direction of your Medicine Wheel, the place of stillness, renewal, and sharing your wise knowledge. In Native American Teachings the White Buffalo, prayer, gratitude, and sharing your abundance is the Guardian of the North. Recently I was guided to include Whale as your guide. The giant of the seas reminds us we emit a frequency through our thoughts. Whale’s message is when you sing your own song you are creating a joyful path to walk. These are your guides until Spring Equinox on Sept 23.
The astrological chart for the Solstices sets the tone for the season. This morning just before Solstice the planet Neptune went Retrograde at 10.36 am EDT. When the planet of illusion or illumination goes on his backward journey he asks us to go within and discover we are “spiritual beings having a human experience”. He is at 18 degrees Pisces and is the focus of a T Square. Are you living your TRUTH or caught in delusions? How are you being guided by your inner knowing to create your best life? Or are you being confused because you do not yet know what your inner self is telling you. Neptune is square Jupiter Rx at 18 degrees Sagittarius. Jupiter is expansion and growth of our spiritual vision or the shadow is being controlled by dogmatic and rigid beliefs. Venus at 15 degrees Gemini is opposite Jupiter and Square Neptune. She asks us to choose to unite in Love. The doorway out of the T Square is Virgo. Today there are no planets to guide us through that doorway but on June 23/24 the mid-point (integration) between Venus now at 18 degrees Gemini and Jupiter at 18 degrees Sagittarius is 18 degrees Virgo, what I call The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. It is the doorway to being of spiritual service.
We have another T Square at Solstice. North Node at 17 degrees Cancer (new directions) Mars at 23 degrees Cancer (spiritual warrior) and Mercury at 24 degrees Cancer (mastering the emotional self) are opposite South Node at 17 degrees Capricorn, Saturn Rx at 18 degrees Capricorn, and Pluto Rx at 22 degrees Capricorn (releasing patterns that are limiting and restricting). This opposition (tug of war) is Square the dwarf planet Eris at 24 degrees Aries (conflict and chaos or purposeful action). The doorway out of this T Square is in Libra, inner peace and balance. Here we find the North Node of Chiron (the healer) at 23 degrees Libra, and two Fixed Stars at 24 degrees Libra. Arcturus, the path finder of the new way, and Spica, using ones gifts and talents for the greatest possible good. There is always a way through the door.
While Grandfather Sun visits the sign of Cancer until July 22/23 he is guided by the Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune (our Soul’s Wisdom). At Solstice the Moon is at 19 degrees Aquarius and she is asking us to open our Cosmic Consciousness to our Spiritual Knowing. Aquarius is the sign of humanitarian ideals. The Moon here reminds us all beings are Spiritual Essences having an Earthly experience. She is sextile (ease and flow) Jupiter at 18 degrees Sagittarius (Spiritual Consciousness).
We are headed into intense times (yes more intensity). On July 02/03 (depending on your time zone) we have a Total Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Cancer. It is visible in South America and the South Pacific but affects us all until December this year. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) will be Retrograde (review and re-access our life path) July 07/08 to July 31/Aug 01. He already entered his retrograde shadow June 20 and will clear the shadow Aug 15. The shadow period sets up the theme for the retrograde in Leo (the compassionate heart) and Cancer (mastery through change). On July 16/17 we have a Lunar Full Moon Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn. This completes the emotional lessons we have been experiencing since January of this year. And the Jupiter/Neptune square is with us until the end of September.
We will write more in the coming days. Whatever the next three months brings be centered in your inner knowing and Soul Wisdom. Be present. Practice gratitude and walk in harmony.
