Sun Enters Cancer
Element: Sun in Cancer, Water
Window Sun in Cancer: June 21 – July 21
Exact Sun in Cancer: June 21 – 6:51am Eastern


Cancer sun provides a prime time for hanging out and connecting with family and friends over the Fourth of July or during summer vacation. It’s time to refuel and rejuvenate with this water sign before the intensity of the harvest cycle gets into full swing.

Tune into places in your life and business where you can create more comfort. Nurture yourself, your projects, your business, and those around you. Create emotional safe space for what is tender, young, and growing in your life.

Apply liberal doses of love to every creation you are magnetizing into your life. Pouring love into your creation mix means also filling yourself with the pure sweet essence of water’s primary power. Only when your inner water is fully nourished by love and appreciation can you magnetize your dreams from the most grace filled place. This window is the perfect opportunity to fill yourself to overflowing.

While you are at it, reflect on your creations and see if they need any other element for an abundant ripening. As you align your dreams and desires with the unified field of all the elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire, with Spirit flowing through all) sometimes an element needs to be strengthened. Perhaps an aspect of your mental beliefs or your old emotional program needs to be cleared for your creations to flourish. Just like growing a garden in your yard, sometimes rocks and roots need to be removed, or fertilizer, water, or more sun need to be added so that your flowers and veggies may thrive.

Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle.

Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere)
Element: Sun in Cancer, Water

Window Summer Solstice: June 20-22
Exact Summer Solstice: June 21 – 6:51am Eastern


Solstice means “Sun Standstill,” and Summer Solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere, brings us the longest day of the year. Find time to bask in the bright abundant light summer brings and enjoy the harvest as things begin to ripen around you. This is a wonderful day to consciously witness the sunrise and appreciate the blessings the solar light and fuel bring into your life.

In your creations, Summer Solstice brings the opportunity to evaluate your progress and add needed ingredients for a successful harvest. If you’ve been working with the timings since last Winter Solstice and tracking your creations, look back to see how far you’ve come since then. Make honoring your progress and celebrating your successes part of your Summer Solstice celebration.

As you honor the Wheel of the Year and work with it year after year, you deepen your appreciation for each phase within its cycles. Since summer is a time of heat and light, this window gives us the opportunity to enjoy the luscious taste of ripe fruit, splash in cooling waters, relax in the shade, and spend a lot of time with family and friends—all perfect expressions of the family-loving, nurturing sign of Cancer.

With Summer Solstice comes the ever-so-subtle shift of the days growing shorter. While it will be barely noticeable for a few months, the light gently begins its slow decreasing from this point through to Winter Solstice when it begins growing again.

Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle.

Personal Action Suggestions for Summer Solstice:

~ Honor the abundant Earth mother.
~ Create a ceremony theme around fulfillment and manifestation.
~ Feel and express your passion and vibrancy for life.
~ Work with abundance and dance to fully activate and allow the energy of abundance to flow through your body.
~ Celebrate the fairies.
~ Work with the hot summer solar fire as an element of transformation.
~ Work with and honor herbs and the green growing season.

Business/Professional Action Suggestions for Summer Solstice:

~ Give thanks for all that is growing in your business at this time.
~ Connect with the Summer Solstice and ask how you can increase the abundant financial flow in your business.
~ Notice what is ripening in your business. Do your creations need anything in order to nurture them to fruition?
~ Appreciate your business relationships and client tribe.
~ Spend some time in reflection about the second half of the year. Tune into what is needed during the second phase.
~ Go for a walk in the hot light of the sun, and ask how you can heat up your creations in order to spring them to light or add solar fuel to increase their growth.
~ Spend some time near water to refresh your personal energy which increases your capacity to magnetize your business desires.

 Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere)


Solstice means “Sun Standstill,” and Winter Solstice is the shortest day and darkest night of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. It marks the place on the Wheel where the sun, which went deep into the dark space of the womb during Samhain, is reborn. After this point you see a gradual day-by-day increase in light until it reaches its peak at Summer Solstice and begins its turn toward the darkness once again. Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. It functions as the seed point for the solar cycle, just as a new moon does for the lunar cycle. Its impact functions in your life for a full year, a complete growing cycle.

Winter Solstice is seen as the time when the Goddess gives birth to the “sun,” or “son,” the masculine principle. The light of the sun emerges, reborn out of the darkness year after year. Thus, traditionally you honored this point on the Wheel by bringing evergreen trees into your home to represent the everlasting nature of the Earth Goddess. They were decorated with images representing what you wanted to bring into your life for the coming year. Gold balls represented the life force of the sun, icicles symbolized rain, paper money or coins stood for abundance, pinecones and acorns implied fertility.

During this time of the year, a time of the holy days and holidays, most cultures engage in celebration. As part of your celebration of the festival of light, and as you honor Winter Solstice, give deep thanks for the bringer of light, the sun, and all it contributes to your life. Consider ceremonially hanging lights from your home to illuminate the darkness and recall the rebirth of the light.

During this darkest phase of the year, you are called to reflect on the past year, giving gratitude for all your blessings, and to dream and create the next stage of development for your desires and goals. How you begin this cycle with the Cancer new moon influences your entire upcoming year.

Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle. 

Personal Action Suggestions for Winter Solstice:

~ Honor and give deep thanks for the bringer of light, the sun, and all it contributes to your life.
~ Connect to the light within and light a candle to honor your inner light.
~ Allow time to turn inward. Nourish yourself, taking quiet time to reflect. Allow yourself to rest as nature is resting. Allow the darkness to nurture you.
~ Determine where in your life you are ready for renewal and rebirth.
~ Ask yourself where you need to be more whole and complete unto yourself.
~ Plant creation seeds for your life to expand during the next growing cycle by creating a dream board for the year ahead.
~ Create a yearly completions and blessings list from last Winter Solstice to this one.

Business/Professional Action Suggestions for Winter Solstice:

~ Express gratitude for all you’ve received in your business throughout the seasonal cycle this year. Create a simple ceremony or altar to honor your creations for the past year.
~ Allow the elements to support your new growing cycle. Tune into Air and ask for information about your most effective focus for the year ahead.
~ Connect with Earth, and plant creation seeds for your business and professional development to expand during the next growing cycle by creating a dream board for the year ahead.
~ Pay attention to Water to determine what feelings you need to connect with in order to magnetize your desires.
~ Ask Fire what right-aligned actions you need to take to energize your creations.
~ Open to receive support from Spirit.
~ Infuse grace and ease into your business for the growing cycle ahead. Ask yourself how you can allow things in your business to be simpler and flow even better, creating more abundant success.
