Summer solstice spiritual meaning: What does the summer solstice mean in astrology?

June 20 marks the summer solstice for 2020, but astrologers believe it marks something more special. As the season changes and summer officially begins, astrologers predict new beginnings. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the Sun will be at its most powerful today, according to believers of astrology.

This is because it is the longest day of the year, so naturally we will be able to reap the rewards of our host star.

According to website Forever Conscious, this means astrologers will be able to heal by harnessing the power of the Sun.

Forever Conscious said: “As the Sun reaches this special marker in the cosmic skies, the ancients believed that the veil between this world and the next grew thinner.

“They also believed that the spirits of nature were more active and more willing to make themselves known.

“In the Northern Hemisphere, where we are experiencing the longest day of the year and the official start of Summer, it is a time to celebrate the abundance of nature, and all that is on offer to us.

“Under the light of the radiant Sun, we are called to express ourselves in an outward fashion and to receive the incredible offerings being sent our way by the Universe.

“The Summer Solstice is considered a time where the Sun is at its strongest and most powerful.

“It is a time where we can really harness its energy and use it to revitalise our body, mind, and soul.”
