On Saturday June 20 2020, at 10.44 pm London time, the Sun reaches its maximum angular distance from the celestial equator. This is the moment of the Summer Solstice, when the Sun moves into Cancer. We can regard it as the opening of a gateway, where the cosmic energy manifests in the material realm. If you are into Celtic mythology, you’ll perhaps know that the Summer Solstice is the time when the king is sacrificed, and his deputy, the tanist, takes over the job. He gets sacrificed six months later, at the Winter Solstice.
If you’re in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the time of the solstice will be at 4.44 pm on June 20. In other words, the Solstice takes place a few hours before Donald’s big rally in the city , which starts at 7 pm. Though bear in mind that the BOK Center, where it’s being staged, opens its doors at 3 pm. That gives you enough time to get to your seat and celebrate the moment of the Solstice, while waiting for the great man’s arrival. You could perhaps chant “USA, USA, USA”, while visualizing Trump’s victory speech in on November 3. He’s not going to win, as I have already predicted, but at least you’ll be doing your bit to MAGA.
The chart for the precise moment of the Solstice, set for 4.44 pm in Tulsa, has some interesting features:
The Solstice takes place just before a New Moon, at a time when the Moon at 25 33 Gemini is making an exact 90 degree aspect to Mars, at 25 35 Pisces. Furthermore, the Ascendant-Descendant axis is exactly on the Moon-Mars midpoint, and Uranus is conjunct the Descendant.
Yet the Summer Solstice is a global event. Wherever you are in the world, the Moon will be square Mars. However the aspects to the Ascendant from the Moon, Mars and Uranus are specific to a particualar part of the world. The map below shows the affected area – it surrounds a yellow line going though the US, Canada and Mexico:
The Moon-Mars aspect is of generic interest, to the whole world. This suggests that the world’s population, or segments of it, will continue to be angry. It is also worth noting that the Aries point is aspecting the Neptune-Hades midpoint. Aside from indicating that COVID-19 will be a continuing and perhaps excalating problem, it also warns of water damage – tsunamis, flooding, and so on.
As far as Tulsa is concerned, the chart is highly charged. The Ascendant triggers the Moon-Mars square, and if we use a wider orb, we also have Uranus on the Moon-Mars midpoint. The rally is likely to be a high pressure event, with lots of angry people, both inside and outside. Indeed having Uranus on the Descendant, close to the Moon-Mars midpoint, suggests that holding the rally might not be a good idea. Donald should have chosen a different location, well off the yellow line. But if the worst comes to the worst, at least he’s got a tanist, in the form of Vice President Mike Pence. That’s a flippant remark, by the way, not a prediction.
