And in the early morning hours on Monday, we have a full moon in adventurous Sagittarius, the second consecutive full moon in this sign. Lunacy always increases on full moons, which can also be experienced as a completion or the ending of a cycle. Consider your own personal wholeness and self-sovereignty.
We also kick off this week with an important turn in the Wheel of the Year. Every summer when the sun moves into Cancer, Summer Solstice is initiated (in this hemisphere), which happens on Monday. Summer Solstice, also known as Litha, is one of the cross-quarter days of the year. The word for solstice (solstitium) means “sun standing still” and refers to the sun standing still in the sky seemingly, making it the longest day of the year, after which we enter the dark half of the year. The sun’s powers are most potent now. Make prayers and intentions with heartfelt integrity and hold them in your heart, make offerings, and release your prayerful magic as the sun sets on Solstice evening. The light will wane and the darkness will grow until the sun is reborn in the sky on Winter Solstice.
Enjoy your week.

Aries & Aries Rising: Monday is a full day. First, we have a full moon in Sagittarius early Monday morning in your house of mental exploration. Full moons always encourage lunacy and represent closure or the culmination of a cycle. This completion for you could refer to a graduation from school or the completion of particular studies. You could also have a shift or insight around philosophical studies, mental pursuits, travel or higher mind topics.
Also on Monday the sun enters Cancer, initiating a new solar cycle as well as Summer Solstice when the sun’s powers are strongest. This Cancer sun cycle will be in your house of home and your focus will turn to family, domesticity, roots, and what makes you feel secure and at home. You will want to nurture and be nurtured for these next four weeks.
