Bring it in, bring it in. This week is like an extended group hug with our innermost circles. On Wednesday, June 21 (or super late on Tuesday the 20th in the Western United States), the summer solstice begins as the Sun floats into Cancer for four weeks. The very same day, messenger Mercury also flows into Cancer's sentimental waters until July 5, upping the ante on the heartwarming vibes.
For the past month, Gemini's solar flares have given us all a case of astrological ADD. Focusing deeply on anyone‚ much less remembering what events we promised we'd show up at, has been challenging, to say the least. But now, the friends-and-family reunions begin. With Cancer's solar flares shooting through the skies, we'll crave nothing more than cozy nights in with the people we adore. And sure, some treks to the family beach house or a seaside Airbnb, as well—especially if there's a kitchen for whipping up home-cooked meals!
Nesting instincts are at their strongest point of the year when domestic Cancer rules the skies. Make sure your home is a haven and that your workspace feels like enough of a sacred oasis for productivity to flow. Add pillows, plants, and pictures of your favorite people to personalize every space.
With Wednesday being the longest, lightest day of the year, this is a powerful moment of personal illumination. Tender emotions that have been buried beneath our shells are ready to be examined—with journals, supportive friends, a therapist, and a box of tissues. Creative bursts could give birth to transcendent works of art. Plant yourself somewhere that inspires you, and be a vessel for the muse.
