June 20 2009 Solstice

Depending on one's time zone, today or tomorrow is the Summer or the Winter Solstice. Four permutations to wish you a happy one. Moon starts off the day Void of Course, and enters Gemini at 10:00am PDT. It may feel slightly similar to a couple of days ago, as the 18th had "sweep speed bumps" of the Chiron/Neptune/Jupiter trio before a Void of Course in the morning, but today, Moon was Square the Chiron/Neptune/Jupiter trio and Sextile the Juno/Uranus pair predawn. Much later, when the official Solstice even happens, Moon will be conjunct Mercury, a hair before midnight PDT. This will likely be a festive day, a Solstice with Venus almost exactly conjunct Mars. Today may show hidden insecurities and vulnerabilities under a guise of power and bravado, the soft interior inside a crunchy shell, or knowledge attempting at overpowering feelings.

The Birthcard today is the 10 of Clubs, a Solar expression of a Mars core and some flexibility to experience a Venus or Mercury core with a Jack of Spades inside and a 4 of Spades outside. 10Cs include Phil Collins, Jack Abramoff, Paul Krugman, Steven Chu, Leonard Nimoy, Richard Dawkins, Erica Jong, Barbra Streisand, Joseph Campbell, and Shirley MacLaine.
