The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23° 26′. This happens twice each year, at which times the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the South Pole. The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere’s summer. This is the northern solstice in the northern hemisphere and the southern solstice in the southern hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 each year in the southern hemisphere.

When on a geographic pole, the Sun reaches its greatest height, the moment of solstice, it can be noon only along that longitude which at that moment lies in the direction of the Sun from the pole. For other longitudes, it is not noon. Noon has either passed or has yet to come. Hence the notion of a solstice day is useful. The term is colloquially used like midsummer to refer to the day on which solstice occurs. The summer solstice day has the longest period of daylight – except in the Polar Regions, where daylight is continuous, from a few days to six months around the summer solstice. Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied among cultures, but most recognize the event in some way with holidays, festivals, and rituals around that time with themes of religion or fertility. Solstice is derived from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still).

The summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, has always been a very important fact of mankind. Ancient civilizations were organized multi-day celebrations to honor the sun. According to Greek mythology, the Sun was Titan, child of Hyperion and the Divine. He had two sisters. The Moon and Io. From the 5th BC century with the full enforcement of Dodecatheon not considered independent deity but confused with Apollo.
For this reason, Apollo also called Phoebus means “ablazed God”. Apart from Greek mythology we find references to God and other people. So we find the Babylonian Shamash, the Assyrian Baal El Phoenicians and Canaanites, the idol of the Ammonites, the Moabites Chimoch, Ammon Ra and Ptha of Egyptians, the Surya Indians, Mithra of the Persians, the Sol the Latins, the jarilo Slavs, the Celts of Belene and the god Indi in Incas and Aztecs.

Since prehistoric years to man welcomes summer with bonfires at night sunflower, the shortest night of the year for the Northern Hemisphere, the sun turns to summer. The night of June 21 is that fires are lit on the threshold of summer. Fires night Sunflower intended to purge any bad turn, ensuring the sun eternal way on the top of the sky.
In Ancient Greece the night Sunflower was the celebration of a love of magic with young people to commute erotic vows and jump over bonfires to purify these vows pushing away any scheming. It was the fire of luck, leaping over the flames three times. The Druids of ancient Britain Celts at Stonehenge. They celebrated the “Fires of the coast.” It is a megalithic circle, built between 2500 BC and 2000 BC In the ruins of Stonehenge, the summer solstice sunrise appears on the horizon in line with the main massive stone monument. Every year, tourists from every corner of the world visit this day.

In ancient Rome, the summer solstice corresponded roughly with a festival dedicated to the goddess Vesta, the Vestalia, celebrated from June 7 to June 15. At this time, women were allowed to enter the Temple of Vesta and make offerings to the goddess. June was also the most favorable month for weddings, a tradition that seemed to be passed down to us through the millennia.

June is also the time for ancient Roman military re-enactment and our very own Titus Pullo Lupus, who has extensive knowledge about both the Roman military and Roman military re-enactment, has graciously taken time out of his busy schedule to provide us with a primer on the Roman Republican army.

In ancient China, this night was dedicated to the feminine forces of the earth, the yin forces. Native American tribes such as Natchez made the celebration of the first harvest. Nobody was allowed to pick his corn before expiry. In Hopi tribe men disguised as Kachinas, spirits dancers rain, carrying messages of people to the gods. In ancient China, the summer solstice was observed by a ceremony to celebrate the Earth, femininity, and the “yin” forces. It complemented the Winter Solstice that celebrated the heavens, masculinity and “yang” forces. According to Chinese tradition, the shortest shadow is found on the day of the Summer Solstice.

In today’s Greece, there are still in the position of that festival, the Bonfires of St John, the Klidona that in some areas they say “the St John of Sunflowers”, precisely specifying the origin of the celebration, which instead of June 21 , made on the eve of St. John, that on the night of June 23.And even today, in many parts of Greece, the fires lit by the sun and their flames thrown dried wreaths of May Day, while those who jump after over fires make secret wishes inside, hoping to succeed. It seems that neither the Christian religion has finally uproot these ancient beliefs, even when the rituals were threatened with persecution by the 6th Ecumenical Council in 680 AD

Summer solstice will enter with the Sun at the zodiac sign of Cancer, at 19:39 pm. Let’s see a little bit the aspects of the first day of summer even though, that will be “hot” with Saturn in Scorpio. On a cosmic level, the Sun will be at the 7th house of the solar horoscope, which is connected to pleasure and amusement resorts, tourism, bond of relationships amongst masses and business establishments, foreign affairs and agreements, foreign relations, treaties and/or disputes, business relationships, agreements.
This house rules our relations with other societies or nations or organizations. It rules treaties, alliances, marriage and divorce issues, public relations, the balance of trade, the conditions of women, and situations of overt aggression. The Sun in Cancer is focusing on matters of security, concerning the 7th house matters. Cancer is the fourth sign and is ruled by the Moon, hence, the Sun in Cancer is a mixture of the Sun, Moon and fourth House influences. Cancer is a psychic sign and therefore the Sun in Cancer gives a tendency toward the occult, often with psychic experiences.

Cancer 1
Your Sun is in the First Decanade of Cancer.
The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon. Physically it is related to the chest, breasts and stomach. Cancer is considered feminine, because its energy is of a reactive nature. Cancer is a Water sign, and as such is connected to the world of emotion and instincts. It is also a Cardinal sign, which means that planets placed in this sign express themselves in a very dynamic fashion – especially in matters related to care and protection. This sign is associated with motherhood and the family. Cancer provides a great sensitivity on an inner level, but also tends to impart a secretive nature. Loyalty, attachment, sentimentality and hanging on to the past are all characteristics associated with this sign. Cancer is associated with highly personal emotions and with the life of the subconscious. Dreams are integral to the world of Cancer. Cancerians are usually deeply sensitive people, who tend to hide their feelings, just like the animal that represents their sign, the crab hides its soft and vulnerable internals within the armor of their shell.
Cancer here, has “The Empath” as its central image. Cancer I people are clever at getting their own way; this is partly the result of to their deep understanding of the needs and motivations others. Despite the fact that Cancer is an emotional Water sign, Cancer I natives are usually not prone to impractical dreams, rather the opposite; Cancer I natives are usually not only practical, but are adapt at making their dreams pay off. Indeed, those born in this period can surprisingly successful in the hard world of business and impressively adept at handling money. Their watery nature is revealed in treating currency as a fluid commodity, instinctively understanding that a constant cash flow is as necessary to finance as the movement of the tides is to the ocean. Furthermore, one of the strengths of Cancer I people is salesmanship. Since they are often masters of human psychology, they are able to easily persuade a potential buyer that a product is the right “personal” item for them to purchase. The home is immensely important to a Cancer I native. Selecting, designing and even building a dwelling is a top priority for The Crab. But like their namesake, some Cancer I people try to achieve a sense of security by carrying their protective shell with them wherever they go.

Those born in this period do tend to deal with challenges by a defensive response, but can like the crab, show markedly aggressive instincts as well. When provoked, a Cancer I can make a quick transition from being shy and retiring to going into attack mode. Indeed, those born in Cancer I must be very careful that their aggressive instincts do not run riot in certain situations. On the other hand, denying and suppressing their aggressive side can present a danger, as this can, for some born in this period, eventually lead to depression accompanied by periodic outbursts of anger. A Cancer I can really put themselves through torture if they allow their personal feelings to become bottled up. If however a Cancer I can learn to deal with their emotional, they will achieve both a highly positive attitude and a successful life.
Cancer I’s great challenge is to learn to avoid hiding behind their armor, while still maintaining and exercising adequate powers of discrimination. The best advice for a Cancer I native is to give others the freedom to take risks. Also, remember that although you may be an excellent salesman, your sales pitch may not always be appreciated. Don’t just confront your fears – overcome them through freeing yourself from their power and through positive action.
On the first day of Summer Solstice the Sun is forming a conjunction with Mars, which is a very aggressive aspect in astrology but also squares Midheaven. The Sun in Conjunction with Mars indicates a strong personality, leadership qualities and great physical and mental activity. It also indicates over-confidence and recklessness; its character is inharmonious, hasty, combative and despotic, and lacks caution and reflection, so that the downfall, following upon the rise to a high position, will be catastrophic. Sun Square Midheaven warns against selfishness and inconsideration, against difficulties with superiors, or other influential people, and points to financial losses, low prestige and professional frustration. This is poor indicator for seeking favors from those in power.
* Sun to midpoint Sun/Mars. The will to live, vitality and vigor, activity.
Mars in Gemini, at the same house of course, indicates spontaneity, resourcefulness, ingenuity, high intellect, mental alertness, aggressive debating skill, restlessness and irritability. An inner need for communication of all kinds and may have too many irons in the fire at times. You can be all over the place, always trying to make one more connection. Speaking and writing are naturals. You have a need for lots of variety, a change of pace. Arguments. Mental energy. With this placing of Mars it is important to be restrained in all dealings with associates, business partners and the opposite sex. If your aggressive nature becomes dominant there is danger of trouble and loss through public opposition, unpopularity, damaged relationships, female enmity or litigation.
* Conjunction: Betelgeuse (58 Alpha Orionis m 0.50) – Mars (orb 0°54’18”),
Orion’s Right Shoulder
Keywords: Calamities, danger, violence
Effect: Unfortunate
Character: Mars/ Mercury
