Happy Father’s Day and Happy Solstice!

To all the men out there playing father roles –whether by birth, marriage/partnership, mentoring, or adoption — Happy Father’s Day! Thank you for modeling the sacred masculine for our next generation. We need your strength and love in this world. Thank you for having the courage to keep showing up.

To everyone, a very Happy Solstice!

I shared in my June 2021 Forecast:

June 20 Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere). The Sun moves into Cancer at 11:32 p.m. Eastern time. This is also the day that Jupiter stations retrograde in Pisces. This date feels like taking the deepest breath all year. Pause before you exhale. We’re almost halfway through 2021. Whether you’ve liked it or not, make a gratitude list for the year thus far. Gratitude invites more blessings. “Not yet” doesn’t always mean “no.”

With Jupiter, one of the co-rulers of Pisces, stationing retrograde, we might feel the taste of hope deferred or a wavering of faith. Use this time to go inward, recognizing that faith builds through a process of relationship. Things ebb and flow, but the connection remains. The quiet moments speak volumes when we learn to listen.

This is a good time from Dreamwork, meditation, creativity, and self-discovery. “That which you seek is also seeking you” … but sometimes you already are that which you seek. Jupiter retrograde gives you a wonderful opportunity to pay attention to details. This particular Jupiter Rx stations at 2°11′ Pisces. Jupiter trines the Trans Neptunian Object Echeclus at 2°56′ Cancer and the Sun as it moves from 29° Gemini to 0° Cancer. In other words, Echeclus punctuates this Solstice.

On Amable’s blog, Transneptunian Astrology, there is this interesting observation about Echeclus: “When Echeclus is activated, there are time connections between past, present and future. Usually something of the past has imposing influence in the present, and something of the present can have an imposing influence in the future, and vice versa, like in the movies “The Kid” (2000), “Family Man” (2000), “Pay it Forward” (2000), “Frequency” (2000), “The Lake House” (2006, remake of “Il Mare” South Corean film of 2000), “Deja vu” (2006), “Tomb Raider: Legend” (PS2, 2006), “Star Trek” (1979) and “Tess” (1979).

“Learning to switch time perspectives allows us to shift our attention easily between the past, present and future, and consciously adapt our mindset to any given situation.” (Amable’s blog is no longer active. The above quote comes from Zane Stein’s longer write up, which you can find here.)

To me, this trine on an extra potent Solstice and Jupiter station day urges us to explore non-linear time. Look for echoes running in past, present and future. Time is MUCH bendier than most people realize, and Wheel of the Year days emphasize the portal aspects and fractal nature of time. Moments between now and mid-October will make this even more apparent.
