The upcoming Summer Solstice on June 21st (2019) marks the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun reaches its highest position in the sky, and this is the day with the longest period of daylight. Since ancient times, the Summer Solstice has been recognized as a significant time of year in many cultures. It has been celebrated with various rituals and festivals. We will have a Waning Gibbous Moon in Aquarius on this day that calls for introspection. We will be asked to turn inwards, think about our goals, and be grateful. The Sun will be in the free-flowing emotional sign of Cancer, so expect some emotional themes to re-surface.
In addition, we will have some very benefic aspects this day. The Aquarian Moon will form a trine with Venus. This can mean new beginnings in love. The Moon will also be sextile Jupiter, the great Benefic planet. This aspect is full of luck and good fortune.
The Summer Solstice is connected to your Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra is known to be the core essence of your personality and identity. The best gemstones to use to open your solar chakra along with activating your full potential for the Summer Solstice would be citrine, tiger’s eye, yellow jasper, amber, and those of a yellow and gold color.
