The 21st June 2018 – The Turning of the Seasons as the Sun Ingresses into tropical Cardinal Water, or Cancer, at 11:07am BST
Today the seasons turn and the abundance of light is shifts. This is most evident if you live far from the equator, north or south. In the south, the weakened light rests before its steady climb high above the southern landscapes; in the north, the light stretches well into the early hours of the morning before it descends towards its rest in December. The day of turning gives rise to a day of reflection, as a space opens up within your consciousness to pause and consider the quality, strength and quantity of your own light.
Today the Sun moves across the threshold of the “Gateway of Incarnation” into the tropical sign of Cardinal Water, or Cancer,, a necessary portal in your overall spiritual development. It is within this watery dominion that you are lifted up out from the dominance of your mind and are ‘encouraged’ to start exploring the quality of your emotional intelligence, your empathy, your sensitivity and your active intuitive awareness.
Perhaps you could take a moment to reflect on how open your heart is and the quality to which you are able to deeply connect with those in your life. Know that over this coming month you are afforded the time to renew all emotional connections that permeate your life, should you consciously choose to invest your emotional attention in them. May this moment be the time from which all your future emotional actions and intentions find manifestation.
