Summer/Winter Solstices - 2022

Summer/Winter Solstices - 2022
Dale Osadchuk

2022 Summer Solstice Northern Hemisphere
21 June at 2.14 am PDT- 5.14 am EDT- 10.14 am BST (summer time GMT)
Winter Solstice Southern Hemisphere
21 June at 5.14 pm AWST Perth- 7.14 pm AEST Sydney, NSW, Australia

When the Sun enters 00 degrees of a Cardinal Sign it opens a doorway into a Sacred Direction of the Medicine Wheel. This morning in the Northern Hemisphere when the Sun entered the sign of Cancer we entered the South Direction of our Medicine Wheel. It is the place of curiosity, expansion, growth and learning to listen to our Inner Knowing and its guidance. The Guardian of the South is Coyote, The Trickster. He teaches us to be flexible, adaptable, and have fun. When he tricks us it is because we are taking ourselves too seriously. Coyote asks “are you having fun yet?”

In the Southern Hemisphere you have entered the North Direction of your Medicine Wheel. It is the place of introspection and translating knowledge into wisdom, becoming the Wisdom Keeper. The Guardians for your North Direction are Buffalo, gratitude for the abundance in your life, and Whale, who teaches you to sing your own unique song. As you connect within you discover your true power.

Summer/Winter Solstices - 2021

The planetary dance on this turning of the Wheel is the same for all of us. The Sun in Cancer is our roots, origins, and our connection to Ancestral Wisdom. It is the family we come from and the family we have created. But I have always seen Cancer as the Wounded Child. That is a strong signature in this Solstice Chart. The Moon at 03 degrees Aries (emotional response) and Jupiter at 06 degrees Aries (expansion of our spiritual consciousness) are travelling together (new inspired beginnings). The Moon is the ruler of Cancer and Jupiter is the spiritual guide. They are in Square aspect to the Sun (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things). Aries carries the wound of rejection, betrayal, and abandonment. This is the opportunity for healing and creating that new beginning. The Moon/Jupiter are sextile (new opportunities) Mercury at 07 degrees Gemini (creating our new story and uniting in love).

Cancer

While the Sun visits Cancer (June 20/21 to July 22) the focus is on our emotional healing. Cancer feels everything deeply. We have to learn compassionate non-attachment so we do not take on what is not ours. The sign of Cancer is the “helper” and giver. Remember to nurture and nourish yourself as much as you do others. In the Norther Hemisphere the Animal Totem guide for this Sun journey is Flicker Woodpecker, who guides us through the transitions life creates with All Healing Love. Flicker connects to the Heart Beat of Mother Earth, as we heal she heals. During this time the astrological Earth is in Capricorn, our Soul Purpose Path. She is guided by Snow Goose, following your dreams and visions for creating the new way. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. Capricorn is also a symbol for society and Pluto (tearing down the old structures that no longer work leading to transformation) has been in Capricorn since Jan 2008. He will remain in Capricorn until Nov 2024. We have seen many changes and there are many more to come. Do not fear the release of the old embrace it. 

Chiron at 16 degrees Aries (healing) is travelling with Mars at 20 degrees Aries (healing anger issues). They are Square (motivation for change) Ceres at 15 degrees Cancer (healing our mother wounds and healing Mother Earth). Neptune at 25 degrees Pisces is the Soul Centered ruler of the Sun in Cancer. Neptune (illumination) is sextile (new understanding) the North Node at 21 degrees Taurus (new directions) Pallas Athene at 23 degrees Taurus (wise action) and Venus at 28 degrees Taurus (what is of true value and importance in our lives). Pluto Rx at 28 degrees Capricorn (transformation and breaking free of limitation) is trine the Taurus planets (removal of obstacles) and sextile Neptune (freeing your spirit). But I have said many times the universe likes to throw us a curve ball.

In traditional astrology we are taught to fear the square aspect. But I resonate with Astrologer Bernadette Brady’s definition of the Square. Motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things. Saturn Rx (reframing society and structure) is at 25 degrees Aquarius (the Collective Consciousness) and square all the Taurus planets and creates a T Square (breaking out of the box) with the South Node at 21 degrees Scorpio (healing past wounds and experiencing transformation and rebirth). This is the theme for this Solstice activation.

While the Sun is in Cancer (until July 22) our Animal Totem guide is Flicker Woodpecker who guides us through life’s transitions with All Healing Love. The astrological Earth is in Capricorn guided by Snow Goose, following your dreams and vision. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. The Clan Mother for the Sun in Cancer is Loves All Things. She is the Guardian of Unconditional Love and Compassion for all life. She guides The Magical Child within. The Clan Mother for the Earth in Capricorn is Talks With Relations. She is the maker of relations and the Mother of the Planetary Family. She teaches us to enter the Sacred Space of others with respect and to honour all life.

As I was finishing this post the Solstice Sun was setting. The Sky was ablaze with the most brilliant red. Promise of new inspired beginnings.

Namaste and Solstice Blessings,

Dale
