June 16-22, 2014 is the week of the summer solstice. The longest day of the year. So very much can be accomplished with such heightened emotional energy. It's easy to make changes when you can get the full force of your feelings behind your intentions. Mercury and The Sun share space on the solstice adding insightful mental energy to the mix-adding an electric buzz to all your interactions. Seek to balance family and work to fully receive the gifts of the current planetary energy.

This week is primarily about the shift from spring to summer. But on the eighteenth generous giant Jupiter connects with Venus adding value to our experience. We are blessed with the download of this all-knowing, optimistic, intuitive, super lucky energy. Venus can be expanded when Jupiter makes contact. When these great beings of Light and Love join forces anything is possible, good fortune reigns supreme. Be poised and powerful this week. And remember, luck occurs when preparation meets opportunity.

The summer solstice happens at 3:51 am June 21, 2014 PST-The sun leaves fast-paced Gemini for emotional Cancer. Cancer is a bossy kind of energy, though emotional and a bit squishy sometimes. Cancer folks generally are happiest when they are in total control of their environment, including any family members and friends that might be in the vicinity. Cancer energy likes to nurture and create security. There is a natural love of the home and family. For the next month your emotions can guide you to what is the most fulfilling path for you. Follow your feelings. Your deep inner knowing is speaking clearly to you now-showing you the only true security is within. Let go of the reigns a little and trust in the hard to define side of things.

At this time of year, in the northern hemisphere the Sun is at its brightest. It is a powerful time to clarify your intentions for the next season. Get clear and certain about what you want and then spend the day focusing on releasing the past and creating space to welcome in the future. And the future is yours to create. With the Sun at its most potent you can plug into a magnificent source of energy and power to help launch the particles of your chosen future into manifestation. Wake up and practice the classic yoga sequence: Sun salutations are a wonderful way to honor the power of the Sun in our lives. The warmth and light keep us alive, feed us energy and more tangible things like vitamin D. Without the Sun the earth would die, and us humans hitching a ride would perish too.
So let's spend a day giving thanks for the Sun. Plant flowers; hang a rainbow making prism in a sunny window; lie flat on your back in the grass, or sand, or dirt and absorb the potent life force deep into your cells. Send love from your heart back to the sun. Breath in the potential of the next three months, breath out all your doubts.

Much can be accomplished this week. There is pressure to proceed. Trust the process of creation. Discipline yourself to visualize only joyful positive possibilities. The Sun sliding into Cancer, marking the summer solstice, is one of the four power points of the year. Many shifts are taking place in our galaxy, don't be surprised if you feel either anxiety or exhaustion. We are all adjusting to new frequencies and this can be taxing to our physical bodies. Note how you feel and make room for whatever comes up. Surround yourself with beauty and positive people. "Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviours. Keep your behaviours positive because your behaviours become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny."Gandhi
