Summer Solstice 2021

Are you ready to begin a new chapter this 2021? With a few notable planets going retrograde this summer, we are asked to re-evaluate how our perspective affects our daily life.

 

We're encouraged to reflect on how we're blessed so far this year, starting on June 20, when Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion stations retrograde in sensitive Pisces. Use this transit to consider how you can share your blessing with others, and pay it forward. Thinking about how you can improve your space? We're ready to lay down roots and get comfortable at home beginning on June 20, when the Sun moves into domestic-ruling Cancer. If you've got a sensitive crab in your life, reach out to them to let them know how appreciated and loved they are.

 

Additionally, look for where Cancer is located in your birth chart so that you can identify how you create a safe space. Take a page out of the Crab's book, and add a new practice to your bathing rituals with the Black Bian Body Gua-Sha. Smoothing out will help you to connect with your body.


It's time to clear the air starting on June 22, when Mercury, our planet of communication and technology, stations direct in his favourite sign of Gemini. It's cool to start signing contracts, buy new technology and communicate clearly once the speedy planet completes his shadow period on July 7. Retrograde fact: Shadow periods are a time of transition after a planet goes direct. During this post-retrograde shadow period, elements of your life can get out of whack. Take your time and be gentle with yourself and others as you find your footing.

This reverse motion will help to reveal critical details that were previously unknown.

 

We're ready to celebrate our inner performer starting on July 22, when the Sun moves into the regal sign of Leo. Spice things up and seek out the spotlight. Look for where Leo is highlighted in your chart to understand better where you seek recognition for your talents. Want to know how the Lion gets his glow? They prioritize grooming, particularly skincare. The Golden Hour Body Oil is the perfect complement to anyone seeking out a Leo-like glow.


The process of innovation requires rest and observation. Practice patience with yourself and others beginning on August 19, when enigmatic Uranus stations retrograde in Taurus on August 19, helping us connect with a new concept of stability. When the planet of change moves in reverse, he asks us to slow down and consider why we're rebelling and conserve our energy – work smarter, not harder.

 

We're in the mood to get ahead of the curve starting August 22, when the Sun makes his way into exacting Virgo. This transit helps us get organized and cut the fat — if you've got any Virgo Suns in your life, they'll be happy to lend a hand if you ask for it. This helpful transit encourages us to take stock of what we need. Take a peek at your birth chart to interpret how you create clarity from chaos. Make sorting fun with a brand new Baggu to take to the beach, home office, or market. Read on to find out what's in store for your sign!
