Summer Solstice is Friday 6.21 when the Earth is tilted towards the Sun and its axis gives us the longest day of sunlight for the year. This has both felt and metaphoric connotations. This "day of light" is followed by the full moon in Sagittarius on 6.23 at 06:23 CDT. This is a week of charged masculine and feminine energies.
Venus moves to Cancer this week on 6.22 at 14:10 CDT and will be weak due to its sandhi (gap) passage; it is not a friend of Cancer.
We can expect our relationships to effect our emotions and vice versa during this transit. We can also expect extra sensitivity for the feminine part of ourselves, and extra sensitivity for the feminine and divine feminine we are connected to.
Both Cancer and Venus correlate to water and bring movement, currents, expansion, tears, fluidity, emotional releases and passionate hearts. Venus will be receiving drishti from Saturn (Saturn who is still retrograde in its position of exaltation, rendering him debilitated, and in Swati nakshatra, ruled by Vayu, the wind god, enters Cancer on a Saturday- day of Saturn). As Venus transits through Cancer, the aforementioned will gain an extra level of sensitivity, as well as an element of grief and sorrow possible. Expect structures, frames, perceptions, and containers to shift, expand and change. There is also the likelihood of transportation issues, car troubles, problems while traveling, etc. Patience and caution may be necessary.
Being physically active with intentionality will go a long way to ease this transit. Do physical movement such as dance, yoga, walking/running, somatic awareness etc. Watch for somatic-bypassing. This will be a great time to practice your (mental/emotional) surfing skills!

Sun moves to Ardra nakshatra on 6.21 and will be there for two weeks. Ardra is connected to Rudra and Rahu, both known for creating changes, destruction, movement and storms. Expect high energy changes and restructuring over the next few weeks. Hang on, Jupiter is next!
*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your "Western Sign" as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual's unique chart.
Aries: Movement, change, and transition are determined by your courage, self-initiated actions, and effort. Emotions with women, heart, home, and land will be sensitive. Your focus is on children, growth, knowledge and decisions, but only due to sheer force. Make space for healthy expression and creativity. Find a safe space for "messy emotions" when necessary.
Taurus: You and your heart are on a mission and it's full steam ahead! The foreign and unusual seem magical and captivating. Enjoy it while it lasts- it will lose it's charm inevitably. Comfort and support, wealth, sustenance and support, speech, singing and eating are still effecting you. Watch what goes in and out of your portals. Bad habits and vulnerabilities are present. Watch your emotions- they give the biggest clues into your safety and security. This is a time to put your needs first.
Gemini: You are still shining and finding much to say about it. Expect an increase in voicing the emotions- a desire, a need a necessity to do so. Share this and make it an offering, a creative gift. Children, decisions, intelligence, relationships and romance continue to blow in and around your mind. How are you doing with pressing the pause button these days? Press it before you are forced to.
Cancer: When one door opens, another closes. You are navigating openings and closings, endings and beginnings, losses and gains. The heart seems to expand and contract with every up and down. Use this next Venus cycle to bring awareness to your tides- to the creative tides, the emotional tides, the tides of desire, the tides of momentum and movement. This week especially brings insights. Pay attention to the waters within.
Leo: There's a certain creative charge occurring for you right now. You are in a space of offering and have the energy and dynamism to do so. As Venus moves to your twelfth house, expect a shift in your creative tides. Pay attention to the subtleties or you will end of forcing things to happen that have a time frame of their own. The process will be slower, expect some endings, transformations and losses to take place. Note the parts of you that are in a rest phase. Be sure to switch gears and come to a full and complete stop when necessary.
Virgo: We might call you motor mouth. Move the mouth and let the inner winds transform your thoughts, words and actions. Sing your songs of freedom. Creative gains, relationships and friendships begin to shift and move. The fierce guru is cultivating your presence and dharma. Magic can enter through the back door- and leave just as quickly. Work on courage and taking effective action steps.
Libra: Some of the new awareness you have received will be moving into external expression, an offering, over the next few weeks. There is a drive to do so now and some may get support from friends or gains in the process. Don't expect complete ease here- this may be an emotional experience- one that likely digs up the old muck. But let the flood waters bring a sense of cleansing, even if at first it ungrounds you and creates muddy water.
Scorpio: The door to the outside world is bringing some irritations still, but also a certain charge and dynamism. Harness the powers and use it with the winds that will bring movement and momentum. You will go further. The emotions, somatic awareness, and the feminine, will begin teaching you more fluidity. Listen to the raindrops making music. Transformations, travels, changes, endings. Doors are opening and closing with old and new opportunities.
Sagittarius: Others, relationships, external resources, the door to the outside world are all bringing resources, offerings, tools, and gifts. Are you receptive to receiving them? You may be so charged from enemy combat that you can't take it in. Don't worry, the emotional currents are beginning to pool and will soon break down your dam. Endings bring beginnings, losses can bring blessings. Find some semblance of gratitude amongst the turmoil.
Capricorn: Paying attention to your gut is essential as you navigate this time of vulnerability. Dealing with enemies, bad habits, losses and changes can take its toll. It is imperative to trust your gut instincts, mental acuity, and felt sense, when making decisions, taking action and navigating relationships. As Venus moves into your seventh house, these skills will be paramount. The portal to the outside world will be alluring, passionate, creatively tantalizing. Finding balance between the inner waters, the emotional needs and the outer lures, will be essential.
Aquarius: Insights and awareness have proved useful lately. Changes, movement and momentum have increased on certain levels. As Venus moves this week, you will be entering a cycle that requires your digestion of creativity and emotions. Be vigilant with these two elements and note their intimate connection. For you, chewing carefully- words, ideas, thoughts, emotions, food- will be very important. Talk it out. Walk it out. Paint it out.
Pisces: It takes two to tango. Your work right now involves the dance of the heart and the mind. This dance begins to move more consciously over the next few weeks so pay attention to the direction you are moving in. You can effectively take action steps and courageous leaps if you dare. Watch for the old bad habits though, and the "enemies" blocking your path. Realizations will come with mind/body connections.
