Don’t Miss This Rare Solstice Planetary Alignment
Today marks a full planetary parade, a Cancer solstice, and the perfect time for you to expand your potential.
Here’s how you can prepare to get the most out of this rare phenomenon on June 21st the Northern Hemisphere will see the most light while the Southern Hemisphere will be at its darkest.
If we look through a telescope that night, we’ll be able to see all the planets of our solar system lining up with the Moon in between Mars and Jupiter. But starting June 24th, the Moon will be in the constellation of Taurus between Mars and Venus and will be the most beautiful day to look at the sky.
How will this celestial event impact our lives? Astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut weighs in on the event.
“So equinox and solstices divide the zodiac wheel into four points, which are the zero degrees of Aires, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn,” Arraut said. “When the Sun enters any of these four constellations, we have an equinox or solstice, bringing in a new season. That’s why these four zodiac signs are called cardinal signs; it’s cardinal energy bringing something new and activating areas in our life that needed action. In this case, the constellation that we’re talking about is Cancer — the energy of home. Cancer season starts on June 21st and talks about homes, safety, family, stability, protection, nurture, and what’s familiar to us — it’s our emotions. So in the upcoming three months, we can experience a renewal of all these matters, since Cancer solstice this year takes place under very dynamic energy.”
What can we expect Jupiter to bring in as a key figure in this solstice?
“We can see that in the upcoming three months we can changing homes, we can be dealing with important family matters, or looking to make important investments into an important property or project that we want to nurture,” Arraut said. “So since Jupiter, the planet of foreign lands and expansion is a very key figure in the solstice, we can be looking for a home abroad. There are lots of people moving or creating a home, overseas for example, or in other states, as well, we can be making investments in places that are foreign to us, and definitely lots of traveling.”
What can those of us who are uncertain about letting go of what isn’t serving us do to align our lives in the next three months?
“For this solstice we have a full planetary alignment, which is something very rare, indicating that this solstice is a key matter to align our life and let go of whatever is not aligned. So, if we do this act of aligning ourselves consciously, the next three months will go a lot smoother than if we don’t. But for sure we can experience many changes in everything that was giving us stability, and a lot of action and movement when it comes to what is home to us,” Arraut said.
Although Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus will align during this year’s summer solstice, Arraut says the energy will last for about three months after the conjunction. So, be sure to embrace this time of action to light a fire in your life and expand your horizon.
The Astrological Implications of This Week's Rare Planetary Alignment
A rare planetary alignment is occurring over the next few weeks. Read on to learn how you can see it, what it means for you energetically, and how you should prepare.
Since the end of March, Venus, Mars, and Saturn have appeared to group together. But starting April 17, Jupiter will appear forming a row of planets in a line. It will be most visible in the predawn sky of April 20.
That is the astronomy of this celestial event, but what about the astrological implications?
“These last two weeks of April, we have something very special going on,“ astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut said, “I know that astronomically we can see Saturn, we can see the moon, we’re going to be able to see Mars, Venus, Neptune, and Jupiter aligned. But what we should really be focusing our attention on, at least astrologically, is Venus in Pisces going through Jupiter and Neptune — and Mars is going to be doing the same around a week later.”
How does the energy of each individual planet come together in this alignment?
“So to understand this we need to understand that Venus is the planet of relationships, love, value, money, self-worth. Mars has to do with our energy and drive, it’s an energy activator and it’s aligning with Jupiter too, which is expansion, exaggeration. Neptune has to do with spirit, aether, loss, and dissolution of veils,” she said.
