The northern hemisphere’s summer solstice on Wednesday sees the sun and Mercury begin their annual swim through the dynamic seas of Cancer followed by a new moon in this watery zodiac sign. The new season and moon deliver opportunities to refresh our intentions and begin again with resolve.

Issues linger from last week, however — namely the battle between light connections and heavier, traditional outlooks. New ways of thinking are supercharged and genius moves can shake up the status quo.

Venus makes her way gracefully across the skies, receiving blessings from artistic Neptune and industrious Pluto. Allow secret dreams and fantasies to meet with practicality; business endeavors can be lucrative and love affairs steamy.
