What the summer solstice means for each star sign

Aries March 21st – April 19th: It’s the simple things in life

Aries, you are a natural adventurer, and your outgoing nature fits well with the eventful vibe of Gemini season this month. However, from June 9th, your ruling planet Mars moves into Taurus, and you may feel the urge to take it easy. While it is in your nature to be out and about, let the summer solstice be a reminder of the pleasure you can get from the simple things in life, and home comforts.

Taurus April 20th – May 20th: Spontaneity and socialising 

This year’s summer solstice calls for some socialising. It is no secret that you love the comforts of home, but you may find that spontaneity is key for your summer season. Have profound and meaningful conversations at social occasions, and you may learn lots. Mars, the planet of passion, is in your sign so you’ll be in the mood for a flirt, whilst Uranus planet of chaos is in Taurus all month, so be prepared for a few surprises.

Gemini May 21st – June 20th: Good fortune awaits

It is Gemini season and excitement surrounds your sign. Jupiter, the planet of wealth, is in your sign this month, so you can expect to be prepared for good fortune.

Most importantly, enjoy your birthday season!

Antonella, professional astrologer at Psychic World provides comment on the importance of the summer solstice and moving forwards after summer:

“The summer solstice is more than the longest day of summer in astrology. It is an important event that provides an opportunity for you to manifest, cleanse past troubles, and encourage self- affirmation. It can provide a sense of strength and energy, and from this, comes possibilities for growth, new connections, and self-healing. 

“Moving forward after the summer solstice, carry your affirmations, manifestations, and goals with you. Although the solstice itself brings focus to these, it is the coming days, weeks and months in which you can hope to see these come into fruition.”
