Tuesday, Jun 17 2014 Mercury enters Gemini
A love of conversation and information. Fast talking, collecting and networking knowledge and data. Enjoying books, letters, magazines, the media, computers and anything else that helps to learn and communicate.
Retrograde Mercury re-enters its sign of dignity, Gemini, on Tuesday. This may cause some significant news or information to be released. Now is an excellent time to review or recheck data. Mercury in Gemini will cause many discussions on-line as well as important documents or decisions to be made. This is a positive time for going back and making a decision about something that you may have been going back to but it is not the best time for implementing new ideas or determinations with Mercury retrograde.
This is an excellent time to return to an old problem or situation and come up with new, original ideas for dealing with them. Returning to meet others again to finalize issues that are outstanding should end with positive results.
Thinking is clear, concise. Stories by and about scientists, mathematicians, computer experts, secretaries, writers, reporters, teachers, lecturers may be prominent in the news now.
Be careful to analyze everything you hear or read about now as Mercury in Gemini can be the masterful trickster and a retrograde Mercury could result in some truly bizarre stories. Mercury is not known for being honest so there may be some cleverly written articles that may be very misleading over the next few weeks.

23°Ta54' D 23°Cn54' D
Comfortable social conditions. Generosity and friendliness. Big productions or gatherings. Beautiful appearances.
There may be a tendency to overindulge a bit at home or on family members. People may be making last minute purchases if they are throwing a big party at home or for a family reunion.
This is a wonderful time to socialize and to re-connect with people (Mercury retrograde too.) Convivial gatherings should be most enjoyable.
While it is not advisable to make any large purchases now, going back and getting something that had been considered earlier should work out fine.
Also, creative projects, enjoying art, music, foreign objects, and higher education may be a source of pleasure.

There may be some significant announcements by leaders, especially in matters that they are going back to, reviewing or revisiting (Mercury retrograde.)
This is a positive time to make changes, corrections or other alterations to a project that was begun earlier. This is also a beneficial time to communicate with authority figures, again particularly regarding matters that happened earlier.
Saturday, Jun 21 2014 Sun enters Cancer - Summer Solstice
On Saturday, it will be the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. The day that the Sun moves into the cardinal water sign of Cancer.
It's officially summer in the Northern Hemisphere!
Solstices are a major event for everyone, especially western tropical astrologers. This is the ingress or entry of the Sun into Cancer and the chart for this moment is studied in order to predict what to expect in the coming months.
With the Sun in Cancer, leaders may have to deal with issues centering around the caring and nurturing of others. Patriotism, family and domestic security will be prominent topics being discussed and dealt with now. Cancer is a water sign and not the most rational so people may react more emotionally and/or out of fear to any perceived threats.
On a positive note, people will be more likely to extend a helping hand to others, treat everyone like family. Prominent stories in the news may center around caring for animals, the less fortunate and the elderly.
