Summer Solstace - Outside and In

The Summer Solstice is here... 8:16pm Jerusalem time, tonight (Tuesday June 21st). The energies of the year which began Rosh Chodesh Nissan (Yehuda) now turn south (Reuven). Rosh Chodesh Tammuz (Cancer) follows closely at the end of this week.

We are in the "South" (bottom) of the year, energetically - as the Sun peaks and then begins, little by little begins to shorten the days until we're on the other side (Winter Solstice - the tribe of Dan, Capricorn) of the year. 

Tammuz and Tevet both have fasts associated with them, both have calamities associated with the Jewish People, and within a person's own Natal chart, these two cardinal points (the 4th House/10th House cusps) correspond with the Inner (Cancer, Tammuz) and Outer (Capricorn, Tevet) manifestations of the idea of SECURITY.

Remember what the Torah says about Reuven ... "you are as unstable as water" (Cancer, the Cardinal Water Sign), also Reuven was greatly beloved as the first-born, the son of Yaakov's "first strength," and yet acted inappropriately in the matter of his father's relationship with his wives, thus being stripped of his birthright as the leader of the tribes. Nevertheless, Reuven did true tshuva and has a place of honor as one of the 4 cardinal points (one of the four key CAMPS around the Mishkan, see BaMidbar (Numbers) Chapter 2-3.

In one's own personality, we have our "Inner Reuven." It's the 4th House: our family of origin drama, the "seat of the soul," the lowest and most private point of our chart, where we go inside the inside (like a crab goes inside his shell), where we make our "home." It's about our ROOTS - the root of our soul, the root of our family/tribe/origins.
