The Summer Solstice, Venus back in Circulation & 2023 Summer School Schedule

So the Summer Solstice is the Longest Day and the turning point to start the journey towards the Winter Solstice, the Shortest Day.

In terms of the as above, so below principle pay close attention to any kind of turning point of your own and also find some stillness.

Why is this backdrop to the year considered to be so difficult? Firstly it’s between two slow moving planets, secondly they’re in Fixed signs (less negotiable), thirdly it’s not a one off confrontation but a three legged event, fourthly the two planets involved stand for opposing principles so it’s a mismatch in lots of different ways and last but not least they’re coming together by square (tension, friction, incompatibility issues).
