There's a feminine grand air trine illuminating this Summer Solstice. The Aquarius Moon aligns with Venus in Gemini and Pallas in Libra. The issues of freedom, equality, inner knowing and balance will offer us a chance to communicate our ideals. Venus asks that we use self-awareness to communicate our beliefs with charm and wit and kindness, and with wisdom. Use your imagination to figure out how to approach issues in ways that speak to the heart. It never hurts to engage with kindness and an open ear.

Venus in Gemini is opposite Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius and they both square Neptune in Pisces . What truths need to be communicated? Truth isn't simple. "Truth is deadly. Truth is freedom. Truth can break and mend and bind." (Sarah Maas, Court of Mist and Fury ).

Mercury in Cancer is intuitive and understands that the family, the tribe, is there to be supported and to support us. With Mars and the Lunar North Node there as well, we are ready to act on our beliefs because we see the breakdown of our culture and our institutions ( Pluto, Saturn and the Lunar South Node in Capricorn ) and we know that it is time to protect and defend life. Everything else is irrelevant.

Our world is ripe for change. Will we be the change agents it needs?

This summer, engage the Spirit of the times. Yes, summer is the time of light and warmth, fun and love. But it is also a time to act to overcome the obstacles of the fear of change that makes us want to pull back and stay safe in the comfort of ignoring the pain and suffering in our world.

We need to upgrade our consciousness, to open to the blessings that came to us at June 17th's Sagittarius Full Moon which occurred on the Galactic Center, the Womb of our galaxy. Open up to revelation! A new belief system will give us new insights and possibilities. With Vesta the priestess conjunct Uranus in Taurus, our rituals will be potent. Rituals help us to hold onto and ground in meaning.

Count our blessings, which are so abundant. I feel like I live in paradise compared to the rest of the world. Which is true for most of us reading this. Spirit wants us to accept the challenge of our times. We can share our abundance of life, of hope, of change with the world.

What are we here for if not to create a better life? A more creative life. More alive to possibilities. We can do simple things like walking instead of using our cars. We can shut off our tvs and talk to our neighbors and see what our town needs that we can offer. We can do something big or something small, but we all need to take some action around the issues that we are passionate about.

Our world is dying . If we don't want to literally kill people or exacerbate climate change, then we have to choose to sacrifice ( to make sacred ) ourselves. Let go of old habits that no longer serve your beliefs. Let go of old addictions that keep you stuck. Let the old world, the old story, die within you, so a new world, a new society, a new story can be born.

Now is the time to open up our vision and communicate it to our communities. The masses ( Aquarius Moon ) are ready to hear the right stories. Like Scheherazade, we have to take the risk and enchant people with the beauty, power and truth of our vision of a free, healthy and creative future. The Arts are especially important now. Just as they were in the 60s/70s. Art is an easy way to get to the he art of the matter. We can turn the fear of the future into a positive image of the future for ourselves and for others who do not have hope.

Where do we look for the parts of the new Story? Begin by asking, what does our world need? What does our immediate environment need from us? How can I contribute? What gifts can I offer? Go out and speak with the trees, the water, the winds, the Earth. Listen. They will speak to our hearts. We just need to use our imaginations to discover how we can help.

The Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses

Cancer and Capricorn are the signs most related to family and country. Cancer is the expert on family and nurturing. Capricorn is the expert manager of the community. We have to let go of the old way of managing things and start to manage our lives around the good of our people. A shift must occur from the head to the heart and then the head can help the heart instead of ignoring it.
