0○ Cancer marks the beginning of Summer in the northern hemisphere and the longest day of light, while in the southern, I’m looking at you Australia, its the winter solstice comprising of the shortest daylight and longest dark of night. Although there’s a lag in the heat of summer and cold of winter that’s expressed by the following solar sign which is fixed in nature. Remember the zodiac is based on our experience of earth’s seasons, it’s the annual solar cycle so really get in touch with your environment and experience/express it ALL to the hilt. You only have this one precious life, embrace all its aspects and live it!!
Set up a solstice ritual to manifest on this point of the new sun or full bloom peak sun (like a full moon but solar). You can also do this for your own solar return, and solar opposition.
