Bust out your natal chart and let’s ground into this moment.
We are crossing the threshold into Summer. Summer is a 3 month season focused on committing to some of the experiments we started in Spring. For me, magically, Summer is the season of claiming our Power, and the responsibility that comes with that power, to foster, nourish, protect, and glorify whatever we have planted in Spring. Thinking on the garden metaphor, this is the garden, bursting with starts that need to be thinned and tomato plants that might soon need trellises.
Summer contains the Sabbats Litha and Lughnasadh. Here, we will pass through the signs of Cancer, Leo, and Virgo. These Sabbats get us focused on the process of continuing, maintaining, and taking responsibility for the effects of the stuff we kicked off in Spring.
In Litha, we receive a sense of what work needs our attention, and we assemble the tools we will need to do our work.
We also come back to the spiritual heart, and get comfortable with what and who we want to hold close. Cancer, a cardinal sign dedicated to initiating emotional processes, oversees this work and welcomes us back to connective encounters, whether in the emotional realms or the oceanic. Our intuitive or spiritual practices may be more helpful now as well as experiences that edge up long buried emotions. So as we step into the leadership roles Litha and Summer may call for, we hopefully don’t lose sight of the real human needs behind the overt gestures.
Every year* the Sun will pass through Cancer. Every year we will have a New Moon in Cancer at some point, and a Full Moon in Capricorn. Look at your natal chart and find Cancer. Look at the house or houses connected to this sign. The house/s the Sun is passing through is where, in your life, you might experience that stuff during Litha season. And this will be true for you every year.
–The Sun represents our fundamental sense of self, our central purpose, and our creative potential.
–Cancer represents our need and capacity to give and receive emotional warmth and security.
So, in general everyone may find themselves more receptive, tender, and sympathetic during Litha season. The New Moon in Cancer will help initiate some part of our Litha work by stirring up a desire for more emotional security, and the Full Moon in Capricorn will help us resolve some part of our Litha work by lending us more organized pragmatism.
