A Celebration of Our Collective Power

Solstice approaches: the stillpoint, with the sun at the apex of its power. Read my Solstice article, which offers a good explanation of the roots of this turning of the solar wheel.

Astrologer Allison Rae discusses the configurations for Solstice 2007, which, given the Divine Feminine focus of the year, fittingly celebrates Love with a capital 'L':

"Solstice Warm-Up - Venus trine Jupiter - June 19

One of the most joyful planetary configurations graces this year's Solstice activities, as the planet of love aspects uplifting, expansive Jupiter. This indulgent trine elicits feelings of hope and optimism, enhancing the joy of the Solstice alignment.

Love Fest - Summer Solstice - June 21 - 2:07 PM EDT; 6:07 PM GMT

A grand trine in fire signs turns up the heat on this Solstice alignment. Sparks fly with Mars in Aries, Saturn in Leo and Pluto in Sagittarius, aligned with the Galactic Center. Passion and creativity flow. June Solstice marks the Sun's entry into Cancer, so we're called to tend the home fire and get in touch with our feelings. With Venus opposing Chiron, emotional wounds surface for healing. Radiant divine love streams our way. Open. Become a vessel for this sacred, creative essence to infuse the Earth."

Solstice has also been recognized by many groups as World Peace and Prayer Day. There will be a global telegathering (virtual circle via telephone) on Saturday, June 23rd, at 8 pm USA EST. You'll find all the details here.
