Summer Solstice, the longest light-filled day of the year for those of in the northern hemisphere, with a shout out to my friends down under rejoicing in their solstice, heralding a return of the light, is exact tonight, June 20 at 9:32pm mountain time. I’m not sure how it is already Summer Solstice, time feeling so fluid these days, sometimes rushing by and sometimes seeming to be at a standstill. And yet here we are, feeling the lushness and for some – intense heat and relentless rains – of the summer.
Mercury stations DIRECT on June 22, completing its 3-week retrograde period, posed to move swiftly ahead at 16 degrees Gemini. An overload of mental activity, for sure, with this Mercury retrograde period entirely in the mutable Air sign of Gemini. Anything you learned, anything you see needs to be re-done, is primed for upgrade. You will feel some energy to move forward in certain areas where you might have felt stuck. The relief of a gentle breeze rolling over you.
