With planets aligning in rare form on your career and reputation angle, you now have the confidence to make your mark on the world. Do it in a big way. Push your reputation out a little further than you think it ought to go, and if you get out on stage, go for two spotlights pointed at you, not just one.
You can make great strides on the financial front this month, if you cast aside all vestiges of status seeking. You have a mission; you have a purpose; you are fortunate, as such. And financial success is indeed part of that. Yet it cannot be the first thing on your mind. There’s something I keep telling young people, which is that something is not worth doing if it’s not worth doing for free.
The exercise I took part in was late in the weekend, Sunday evening for a class that had started Friday night. The instructions were simple. One of the five men who was serving as a “model male” would sit in a chair.

As the U.S. moves ahead with a massive arms deal with Saudi Arabia, Saudi’s king has deposed his nephew as crown prince and has replaced him with his son—the same man presiding over the devastating U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Yesterday, both Mercury and the Sun entered the early degrees of Cancer. This offers a unique chance to clear out anything that perhaps no longer has a place in your life, and to embark on something entirely new.

As Amanda Painter writes, with this event comes an opportunity to understand better the cycles of constant change in your life, and the sense of calmer inner seas that can bring.
Simply trust that your strength will not only hold up, but increase. You know you’re working toward something that is deeply important to you; vital and personal and connected to your mission in the world. This week’s Full Moon may have arrived with what seems like choices, neither of which are viable, but what you are experiencing is really an outgrowth of your perspective.
In the most expensive congressional race in history, Republican Karen Handel has defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a special election in Georgia. Today’s show looks at the role of gerrymandering in shaping the outcome of the race. Amy Goodman spoke to Georgia state Senator Nan Orrock and Rev. Raphael Warnock, the chair of the New Georgia Project.
Today is the solstice: the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Sun enters the sign Cancer. This year, Mercury follows close on the Sun’s heels, immediately making a conjunction in the first degree of the sign. That’s Aries Point territory; notice how you feel as your life and the world around you intersect.
