Horoscope of Summer Solstice 2010
Chart shown: Summer Solstice June 21, 2010 @ 7:28:10 am edt, White House, Washington, DC; Hour of Saturn; 1st quarter Sun trine Moon (0A26); chart-ruler Moon 29Libra34 (critical or crisis 29th degree) in 4th house of Domestic Scene and Real Estate.
Luna is quite the busy buzzy bee in this chart and is emphasized during Summer 2010 by her usual fluctuations, changes, and publicity from being placed in her natural house, the 4th, so foreclosures, refugeeism, and other types of financial issues and dissolution (Moon trine Neptune ~0S59~ in 8th house of Credit, Debt, Insurance, Shared Resources, Transitions, etc) will continue with Libra signaling tricky legalisms. Women's, families', and domestic needs and concerns under gird much of the action for the season; mining and environmental issues are emphasized as well.
As you see, asteroid Terpsichore is rising, keyword: the orchestrator, @ '23Can'..."Meeting of a Literary Society" - an interesting degree and asteroid when you consider that early one-world-government types such as Adam Weishaupt were all about introducing Illuminati-ism into early America by way of 'literary societies' and 'reading groups'.
As the chart-ruler's path goes, so proceeds the chart/event/entity:
Moon's applying aspects in order of completion (listed on chart, lower left, except for #5 and #6 which I here add):
1. trine Sun (0A26, as noted above); 'we-the-people in harmony with the president'?; can cause apathy; persuasion employed; domestic enterprises and property ownerships are favored (good!);
2. inconjunct (150 degr) Uranus (0A56); emotional distress due to problems popping up repeatedly; low resistance, nervousness, pressured by burdens; willful;
3. trine Chiron (1A16); Art and Music thrive; a calming and healing influence;
4. inconj Jupiter (2A16); discrepancies between emotional responses and the understanding of them; great difficulties determining the true significance of events; repeated lessons make the learning process painful until full meanings are grasped; assumptions that 'experts' are competent (ain't necessarily so!); must develop interests outside of work such as volunteering and/or creative pursuits; may bite off too much to chew - see 'Sun square Jupiter' below.
Moon is also engaged in a separating septile aspect (51:57) with contentious Mars which imparts a karmic or fated flavor to their combined energies. In Politics or Business, Moon/Mars relates to such things as the military - including fluctuating effectiveness thereof - also, farming/agricultural, metal or mineral mining, commercial land uses for military or business activities, and/or leaders who show concern about the general welfare yet who do not necessarily follow through with relief. (Munkasey, Midpoints.)
The Summer Solstice 2010 chart set for the White House shows Sun and Mercury in 12th house of Karma, Self-Undoing, Large Institutions (like Congress), Behind-the-Scenes, Zoos (like Congress), Hospitals, Sanitariums, Secret Enemies, and good old secrets themselves. And let's not leave out Secret Agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and other organizations you may wish to quietly name aloud.
Now this is something of a Politics-drenched chart because 12th house planets such as Sun (the leader) and Mercury (thought processes, communications, the media, commerce, trade, meetings, speeches, young people, etc) indicate politicians (in their natal charts, too) and deals being made behind the scenes (in mundane charts.)
And that describes Politics in a nut shell (game) - secretive 12th house shenanigans.
Yes, this is the general 12th-house state of all Politics, of course, especially of the pragmatic kind, and it puts me in mind of last evening's Frontline, Obama's Deal. Check out the text or video, if you missed on April 13.
Again with the Summer Solstice 2010...
Besides the Sun/Moon trine perfecting ever so soon (0A26), the Sun applies elsewhere as well:
1. square Uranus (0A31); leadership talent but may be rebellious, unpredictable, arrogant, or unprincipled; strong desire for power, demands subservience from others;
2. trine Chiron (0A51); aware of basic power for change in all structures; a strong sense of purpose (Clow):
3. square Jupiter (1A47); bites off too much to chew, then tries to cope; experience subdues arrogance; a wheeler-dealer not afraid of a good fight;
4. opposite Pluto (4A13); extreme measures taken to assure success; striking first to defend yourself is futile with Pluto opposing; may be constantly harassed by people who refuse to support leadership;
And #5 is the Sun/Mercury conjunction (8A31), exact on June 28, 2010 @ 6Can42...'7Can' = "Two Fairies on a Moonlit Night"...click for Sabian Symbol details.

As you see, Jupiter and Uranus are conjunct Mc (The Goal; Aspirations) but from the 9th house side; Uranus remains in contact with the Aries Point of World Manifestation and the two planets will tango twice more - but in late Pisces - before 2010 ends; 9th house retains its usual associations yet the Jupiter/Uranus duo always has long-distance travel/adventures/explorations/space or air travel connotations along with its 'scientific breakthrough' vibe. You've been hearing of amazing discoveries already, haven't you? There are certain to be more with AP triggered by expansive, ideological hierophant, Jupiter, and maverick progressive of genius fame, radical Uranus, The Awakener.
Since there is a difficult Solar Eclipse on July 11, 2010 (not marked on chart: 19Can24; 12 South) which suggests action regarding security, domestic scene, real estate, business, crops, and other Cancerian things already mentioned, I hesitate to say that the Eclipse falls in the 12th house of this chart, though it isn't notated there. Banks and markets will be subject to fluctuations, new educational programs prove costly, as will everything else. Fraud and a further draining of America's fortunes continue.
The July 11 Eclipse conjuncts a difficult Fixed Star, Castor; plus, 12S is in the same Series as America's Pre-Natal Eclipse: successful outcomes to long-term worries or illness, seeming worse, then clearing (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology); this Solar Eclipse, which last occurred on June 30, 1992 @ 8Can56, has significance for the White House, NYC, and the Vatican. (Celeste Teal's Eclipses.)
My deepest concern as Summer 2010 approaches is for the American people, here represented by the Moon at crisis degree (as in Inauguration 2009's chart @ 29Sco...now it's almost Summer Solstice 2010 and still many of us enter into, or remain in, dire circumstances with few practical options.)
And with Moon contacting an 8th house Neptune, planet of fraud, loss, deception, self-deceit, confusions, and obfuscations, I suspect the nearness of Wounded Healer Chiron, now entered into compassionate Pisces, one sign of the victim/savior axis, will be most efficacious for understanding the true nature (8th house) of what it means to lose (Neptune) one's material possessions (4th house Moon)...while managing to keep one's heart and spirit childlike and thus open to new possibilities.
Well, I've managed to type a bunch of words without one mention of the two planetary patterns in the chart, but if you click the image to enlarge, you'll see them listed and highlighted: Grand Cross in green, and a dissociate Grand Trine (Water-Air mix) in purple.
They must be covered at another sitting (including their midpoint pictures) for there is much more to say about this chart as Summer 2010 nears. However, I shall close for now and await your valuable comments about the Summer Solstice 2010 horoscope, comments which can be written by no one but you, lone reader.
