Summer Solstice 2023

In this article I discuss the astrological energies (True Sidereal Astrology) at play on the day of the Summer Solstice as well as ideas to ritualise the day in your own way so that you can harness the most out of this powerful solar energy!

On the 21st June, the Sun will be exactly at its highest point on the equator along our annual journey and it will be the longest day of the year for those in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth (For those in the Southern Hemisphere it will be the Winter Solstice and shortest day of the year). The Sun will also be moving into the sign of Gemini, as seen by looking up at the living sky and the true cosmic alignment.

This time of the solar journey has been celebrated all over the world since ancient times. Ancient cultures all over the world have celebrated this solar event because they were tapped into the knowing of how the sun is closely interlinked with the light, dark and our consciousness.

The summer solstice is an incredibly powerful and sacred time as the veil between this physical world and other dimensions are extremely thin. For 3 days before and 3 days after the peak of the Solstice we are more sensitive and can feel more in tune with the energies and dimensions around us.

Happy Gemini Season!

The Sun enters the constellation of the twins, marking the beginning of Gemini season. For the next month, we can expect more themes around communication, mental processing, fresh ideas, curiosity, thirst for knowledge, information, perception, duality, siblings, neighbours, learning and even teaching. It’s also a time to take more care of our nervous system as mental anxieties, overthinking and nervousness could be heightened. Regularly connect with your breath everyday to bring in fresh air to relax your nerves.

Big Taurus Energy

To gain a deeper overall energetic innerstanding of the Gemini Summer solstice we must look to where Mercury is residing, the ruler of Gemini. Mercury is in Taurus, making Taurean themes in the collective psyche very significant now, especially as the last two new moons were also in the Taurus constellation.

There is a strong pattern of Taurean themes around self-worth, self-value, resources and Mother Nature largely being called to our awareness now.

We are being invited with the strong energies of the solstice to connect and communicate (Gemini/Mercury) with all of Nature including our own physical bodies (Taurus) to bring about more healing for Gaia/Sophia and ourselves.

Bring awareness to your physical body. What is your body communicating with you? What thoughts do you regularly think about your physical body? Observe your thoughts without judgement to see if they are harmonious or disharmonious.

Set the intention this Solstice to discover and liberate whatever is stored in your body. We can more easily let go of the things we are holding onto, tap into our soul’s history and unlock higher codes of consciousness within our DNA.

Protect Your Health

It is important to protect ourselves from the increase in chemtrails around the solstice. This is done purposefully by the matrix to try and block out the sun and its powerful light codes! Try not to give them too much attention and know that the matrix does this because they are afraid of us harnessing our true power with nature and coming into our own soverignty.

Luckily nature has the remedies for these toxins and toxic heavy metals so try to consume more of these listed below to help with the cleansing: Turmeric, artichoke, cilantro, seaweed (Atlantic dulse), spirulina, chollera, lemon water, garlic, chia seeds, dandelion root, milk thistle, beetroot, basil, wild blueberries, zeolite, sacred snuff (rapé).


Sun Square Neptune in Pisces

Insecurities and false perceptions around self-worth may be coming to the surface. This energy could manifest as comparison and looking for validation in the external world to verify and soothe the internal world. As well as increasing sensitivity to the energies and influences of those around us.

It is beneficial to go inwards with this energy to expand your awareness but just watch out for losing yourself in the ego and believing the inner illusions of self. Channel any internal tensions through creativity to activate the imagination as this will be very beneficial to help ease the tensions with Neptune.

Sun Trine Saturn (R) in Aquarius

Saturn retrograde trine the Sun brings harmonious energy to take responsibility for past actions and find a new level of maturity within the collective consciousness.

It will be easier now to restructure anything that has been unstable in your life and reassess your boundaries with others. It would also be a good time to reflect on lessons that repeat and how you have grown in regards to Aquarian themes.

Mars in Leo Square Uranus in Aries

This is a very Firey square. The dynamic between these two planets could mean facing external struggles, you could be confronted or asked to change something you do not want to. There may be more impateince, unpredictable behaviour/anger and feeling like you have to fight for your way of being. Anger could even be massively bottled up due to fears of expressing ‘unconventional’ anger. Basically this is a super triggering energy!

Find ways to release your inner tensions and anger in healthy ways. If you find it difficult to control your emotions then try to go easy on yourself and know that these planets are helping you to bring out unhealed aspects within your psyche so that they can be made conscious and loved by you (solar energy).

Personal ways to release excess Mars energy can be found in the sign and house that Mars resides in your own chart and the element of the sign will help too. For example, my Mars is in Cancer in the 1st House. So to ease Mars tension within, journaling my emotions (water) and connecting to the inner mother within (Cancer) helps me to gain more self-awareness (1st house) harmonising my Mars energy.
