A Long, Hot, Steamy, Scorching Summer 2014
by Jude Cowell
On Saturday June 21, 2014 at 6:51 am edt the Summer Solstice perfects as Sun reaches 00Can00:00--in Washington DC with 13Can53 rising along with star Sirius, 'The Scorcher', and thus with America's natal Sun, 'the president'. Portentous? Undoubtedly, with global domination plans much more visible to the masses as the global government types' satanic goal is nearer than ever.
It's a Saturn Hour of consolidation and restriction with President Obama's last two years in office expected by many to be years of little action, lame and dull--and certainly of few improvements if certain trans-global entities continue to have their way about it. And of course, Saturn is also the planet of ancient religions and cultures such as are found in the Holy Land, Israel in particular.
Yes, the Summer Solstice 2014 horoscope contains worrisome aspects and planetary patterns as the As Above So Below adage bears out since Time began--a YOD, or Finger of God, for 'special task, crisis, crossroads, turning point' vibes appears (Venus, MC, North Node), overlaid by the yoke of the Cardinal Grand Cross the world has been groaning under off and on for months now--here between the usual culprits, Uranus (16Ari07 in 10th house), Pluto @12Cap36 Rx just barely setting in 6th house), Mars (14Lib52 in 4th house and conjunct US natal Saturn, a time of obstacles and rules that chafe yet possibly of better organization and careful planning.)
The Solstice chart's Ascendant makes the 4th point in the Cardinal Cross which of course denotes that US natal Sun is also the 4th point of the Cross. This highlights Pluto opposing US natal Sun as anarchist Uranus squares it, and the ASC is where these dynamic energies can easily express just as this Saturday morning rolls around and spotlights Summer 2014 as its primary season for whatever the difficult Cross brings.
Karmic = We Reap What Was Sown
Probably what the horoscope describes is 'more of same' yet the synchronicity of Summer Solstice 2014 with US Sun precisely rising may indicate a new element arriving on the scene, brought to us by Washington DC. In 1st house rises protective Jupiter--intent on expansion, investment, and exploration, yet is a hint of over doing things involved? Well, Jupiter @24Can33 conjoins US natal Mercury Rx, a time when new methods and experiences appear, travel and business ventures expand, and all Jupiterian realms are apt to blossom--in size if not in greatness. Development in communities and many local affairs may benefit from someone's generosity; banks and corporations of various kinds may merge or mergers may be announced (as if they're not too big already.) Perhaps a politician will 'switch sides' before November thinking it a better advantage, a tactic that's been tried before with what is usually temporary success.
Now the Solstice Sun is in 12th house of Politics, Large Institutions, Secret Deals, Karma, and Self-Undoing along with Mercury Rx @27Gem43--'28Gem' is a degree of BANKRUPTCY and is the degree of 9/11/01's void-of-course Moon, if that means anything.
Plus, as noted above, transit Pluto continues its power struggle and stand-offs with President Obama (US natal Sun), a titanic power game with important consequences. And of course the US Mercury-Pluto opposition of spying and total surveillance is at the heart of the plutonian mix as transit Jupiter moves into alignment opposite US natal Pluto (27Cap33 Rx), denoting a period when power and success are grossly mismanaged and 'a contest of wills' hardly describes the snit of miffdom everyone is in--and with Election 2014 looming in November. However, those contests will be influenced specifically by Autumn Equinox 2014 in September and the October 2014 Solar Eclipse.
Actually in the Summer Solstice 2014 horoscope, the primary chart factor to be considered above all is any applying major aspects of the chart-ruler--here, the Moon (Cancer ASC.) This provides clues to how things will proceed this summer and in this case it's Luna's square to Jupiter (3A27--from 10th house of Public Reputation and Career to the 1st house which signifies the Summer Solstice and season.) Remembering that the Moon represents The People, the Public, and the public mood in a Mundane chart (Mars-ruled Aries = active and angry!), a Moon-square-Jupiter condition supports the above indication of obstacles and blockages when gratification is delayed if not denied. (Moon in Aries = We ARE the People.) Impatience is out of proportion to frustrating delays or denials yet we still may stamp our feet at injustice. And yet once gained, we may not truly appreciate or properly use what was received. We may wish to beware extravagance!
Flowery or overblown emotional outbursts may seem entertaining this summer--and certainly will be in our ongoing and tiresome Political Theater performances--yet outbursts may waste energy more than they actually improve anyone's situation. And don't be surprised if it seems that 'nothing' falls into place as it should for the next few months but with the element of timing that Astrology brings to the table we always know that This Too Shall Pass.
Summer 2014's steamy Sun Can-Moon Aries blend of energies, a Water-Fire affair, has a politically infused 'Image for Integration' you might appreciate:
"A suffragette takes to the barricades in aid of her cause."
Hillary? Is that You, Hillary? More like Elizabeth Warren!
