Summer Solstice - June 21, 2018

The Summer Solstice takes place on June 21, 2018. This is when those of us that are in the northern hemisphere experience the longest day of the year! Since the Sun is the primary source of energy for most beings on earth, this day has often been celebrated for its abundance of light, energy of all sorts and the opportunity it provides for getting rid of the old and bringing in the new.

Soul Mate Connection

How do you identify a soul mate?  A soul mate is different from a life partner.  A life partner relationship may be very fulfilling, however, it is a somewhat different experience from being with a soul mate.  A life partner relationship may be very mature and based on mutual respect, love, trust, common goals and friendship.  A soul mate connection is a little more difficult to nail down.  With a soul mate, you are drawn to someone.  It is usually intuitive and basic.  It probably seems right and comfortable.  Words seem inadequate to describe a soul mate connection.


Mercury goes into retrograde starting June 26, 2013 and end July 20, 2013.  A retrograde occurs when a planet seems to move backwards from where we sit.  Mercury is our closest neighbor, so it goes into retrograde several times a year.  Of course, it is important to note that the retrograde starts to affect things for periods before and after the actual retrograde.  The effects of this retrograde may start to be felt as early as June 18th and extending itself through July 28th.  Long and torturous.
