How to make the most of this week 🎯 … This week’s big news is the Sun’s entrance into Cancer on June 21st, heralding the seasonal solstice. In the Northern Hemisphere, the light culminates, the Sun as resplendent as ever. In the South, you’ve reached the darkest point of the year, with the light soon beginning to gather. Use this time to take stock of everything that makes you feel lush and abundantly resourced. Nurture the projects, community ties, and heart stirrings that you scattered on the wind during Gemini season. If you want to make some magic, gather with friends, feast on seasonal treats, and worship the Sun’s light however you see fit. This is a witching hour. Your coven awaits.
Venus’ entrance into Gemini on June 22nd will extend the mingling, cross-pollination, and experimentation when it comes to your desires. The more you flirt with the universe, the more it flirts back. If you only do one thing this week, let this turning of the light pique your curiosity about what’s possible.

Tarot card of the week 🃏 … We chose the Chariot for its correspondence with the sign Cancer. This is the part of the sky where the Sun recently entered, marking the seasonal solstice. This card’s forward momentum and determination capture this moment of peak vitality. Something in your life may be at a culmination, though the journey ahead is far from over. Now you must learn to harness the powerful energies at your disposal, just as the charioteer propels itself forward. When contemplating this card, ask yourself: when was the last time a massive expansion in your life brought feelings of exposure or vulnerability? How did you work through these challenges? What did you learn by staying the course?
Affirmation of the week 😌 … If I want to win, I need to balance both life’s inhales and exhales, its expansion and contraction. If I want to understand the potential of my life, I need to disarm my defensiveness as much as I need to cultivate firm boundaries.
