On June 21 Sun (vitality, self-confidence) reaches zero degrees of the WATER sign Cancer. This is the Summer Solstice, peak of the Sun’s power and the longest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere.
As a WATER sign, Cancer motivates us to make emotional connections with others. This sign can be difficult for the Sun, which needs to feel self-reliant . The Sun will continue in this sign until July 22. This is a good time to reach out to our family and loved ones and renew ties that nurture us emotionally.
On June 21 Mercury (one’s thinking, communication) enters the WATER sign Cancer. Mercury isn’t happy here, as WATER signs are very emotional, and words are often poor tools for conveying feelings. Because Cancer is a Cardinal sign, Cancer is expressive and active. Here Mercury will reach out to others and try to bond with them. Mercury will be in Cancer until July 6.
