The main event this week is the Sun’s transit into the emotionally sensitive, security-seeking, family-oriented sign of Cancer. This happens on Tuesday, June 21st at 5:13 AM EDT – coinciding with the the 2022 Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year.
This is a culmination point. We’ve taken things as far as they can go in their current direction. A shift or a change in direction occurs. In the northern hemisphere days get shorter. In the southern hemisphere the opposite occurs. Solstice symbolism is reflected in our personal lives and the decisions we make.
The Sun progresses from the busy, informative, somewhat scattered sign of Gemini – into quieter, more deeply personal, emotional realms. A different focus centering around home, family, protection, security, and the past takes hold. Now is a time to tune out the noise and focus how it feels.
The past is likely to come back to life in ways that remind you of what you’ve forgotten and where you came from. This is typically the time of year when “family reunions” are organized and memories are shared.
On Wednesday Venus enters the sign of Gemini. Old stories are passed down, repeated, embellished, or downplayed. It’s a good time to express the love and appreciation you feel.
You might be willing to consider what you previously could not. Open-mindedness allows you to interpret and better understand the past with the benefit of hindsight.
The major aspect requiring your attention this week is a supportive trine between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Significant transformative changes involve the release of what you’ve become too attached to. “Getting out of your own way” might be relatively easy especially if you’re willing to break some old rules that no longer apply. You might feel you’re worth the effort required to release what no longer serves you. It’s a good time for you to develop a natural talent you’ve taken for granted.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
This week your 4th house of home and family is a focus – possibly as it relates to the emotionally secure foundation you’ve built to to support your professional success and what you’re attempting to achieve. Some awkward adjustments might need to be made as you work to release what’s run it’s course – and shift your attention to what’s actually substantial promising.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Things get easier as you let go of old plans and the need to control the future. Living “in the moment” and appreciating the wisdom you’ve you’ve accumulated is highlighted in ways that bring you “back home to yourself” and what’s in front of you. Saturn is likely to make this somewhat challenging as you take seriously your leadership role or sense of responsibility to protect the family and present yourself beautifully. (the Poem “Love after Love” seems to resonate with your horoscope for the week.)
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Your source of security this week might revolves around stabilizing finances, communing with nature, or getting into a rhythm that feels right for you and staying there as long as you can. Relaxation is important. It might be time to delve deeper into what motivates you, and to trust your instincts and intuition to lead you in the right direction. A source of dread with regard to your security may be obsessive. The cure is spending more time in the nature and quieting your mind.
CANCER (June 21-July 21)
Cancers might need to acknowledge a tendency to automatically adapt and accommodate “the other” especially if the “scales feel imbalanced.” This is a week to protect yourself and your physical body from becoming overwhelmed. It’s good to refuse to participate in stress-filled situations – even if that involves hurting someone’s feelings. Refuse to cave to pressures that deplete you.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
This week the Moon in your nebulous, highly sensitive, magically infused 12th house suggests “less is more” when it comes to power plays or manipulations associated with your work life. You’re likely to have an advantage when it comes to intuiting the overall “lay of the land” and the big picture. It’s likely you’ll feel invisible support when you need it most – especially if you ask for help from the ancestor who loved you most.
VIRGO (Aug 21 – Sep. 21st)
This week you may be highly sensitive to the suffering of the masses in ways that require you to focus intently on infusing love into the world – or infusing your natural healing talents into the world to “transform the nature of a soul-less game.” Working within communities to protect the most vulnerable might be a focus. There’s no sign better at finding practical, compassionate solutions to monumental problems than Virgo. Some form of personal healing is likely to be the result.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
Something kinder, more compassionate, nurturing and sensitive, yet balanced needs to be applied when it comes to strategies for professional success. It’s possible the foundations you’ve built to support your success might need to be transformed in some regard. Role models from the past who sacrificed everything for success might continue to hold some influence over you. For you it’s better if you play it down the middle and become a role model for others.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 21)
This week freedom, the ability to expand beyond where you are now, future planning, and some new clarity with regard to your source of security is delivered. But complicated issues from the past – lies, betrayals, a refusal to let go of the past – can undermine what’s healthy. Look to a partner or partnership to clarify what’s promising and what’s not. Let go of what prevents you from solidifying a promising relationship.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
A deeper investigation or some deeper thought with regard to what actually makes you happy could provide a more solid sense of security for you. Heightened sensitivity allows you to notice when you’re feeling authentic, happy, satisfied, content, and relaxed. This is critical information that may be delivered through some heightened sensory perception. Once you sense you’re resonating to your most natural rhythm, memorize that feeling and future decisions will be easy.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 21)
This week your sense of security could rely on a professional partnership or personal relationships – maybe both. You might have to moderate a tendency to be over-controlling as you struggle to trust a system set in place to keep you safe and well protected. Saturn might challenge your ability to love and trust yourself (and a partner) more. Your ability to easily attract what you desire most depends on your ability to release painful betrayals from the past.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 21)
This week your source of security (maybe your work) is challenged by something beyond your ability to consciously control. You might feel like you’re moving backwards as your power seems diminished in some regard. The message is to let go and trust the process. What being diminished is likely to work in your favor. Holding on to the past can be debilitating. Let it go and do what interests you most.
PISCES (February 21 – March 21)
This week your source of security might depend on group support. But you might not totally trust that the group will keep you safe. Groups can overwhelm your ability to align with a flow of inspiration that’s powerfully creative and individualistic. Travel aligns beautifully with expanding opportunities that open your mind to something that resonates deeply within you.
