“Question reality, especially if it contradicts the evidence of your hopes and dreams.”  ~Robert Brault

We have mental Mercury in vulnerable Cancer squaring off with stern, reality kingpin Saturn in balancing Libra. This is one of those days when we may need to earnestly strive to see the glass half-full, as naysayer Saturn tends to conjure up our doubts and fears. We begin to second-guess ourselves.

Not to worry, though. There is surely a patch of blue sky with sunshine around us somewhere. We just have to find a way to align our personal orbits so that they will eventually intersect with this more inspiring outcome. With Saturn’s narrowing ray stoked, it is often helpful to step outside of ourselves in a bid to gain wider perspective.

Also, we do have the Moon steeped in mystical, nirvana-seeking Pisces, which should be a blessing for us here. The Moon in Pisces also helps to inspire compassion in us. Too, we may want to remember to use some of this on ourselves now, as part of our own self-care.

In the Northern Hemisphere, it is also the day of the magical summer solstice (1:16 pm EDT), when the empowering Sun enters nurturing, nesting Cancer, where it will stay for the next month. This ingress also serves to sensitize our nature and gets us much more in touch with our feelings, as well as our nostalgic past. Our need to put down firm, stable roots, is very vital to us now, as we seek out activities or interests that make us feel more secure, with special emphasis centered on the home and family arenas.
