If Your Birthday is June 21
(The Day of Worldly Rapture) | Birthday Readings: Gemini | Cancer | Others
The Sun and Mercury enter your birth sign on your birthday, which is about your expanding presence in the world. Focus your mind and your intentions and you’ll discover that you have a profound influence on those around you. There’s no substitute for wisdom, which comes not from the opinions of others, but rather from inside you.
Written in the Planets
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. If you’re at a moment of decision, decide — and feel what it’s like to empower yourself in that way. The solstice is a natural energy surge; this year it’s also a reminder to notice your thoughts, to express your feelings, and to listen with empathy to the communications of others.
