Astrology Predictions for the 2024 Summer Solstice

According to an ancient proverb,

"The summer solstice is the time when the sun stands still in the sky."

The summer solstice is also referred to as the 'Midsummer' and marks the beginning of Cancer season, which occurs after the 21st of June. In 2024, the exact date for the summer solstice in many parts of the western hemisphere will be June 20.

The Horoscope Chart for the Summer Solstice, 2024

The chart for the 2024 summer solstice is somewhat mixed. A neutral Jupiter is the ascendant's lord, but this is placed in the 6th house and therefore has a limited positive influence. At the exact moment of the solstice, the Sun itself will be in an enemy sign of Gemini. In addition to this, the malefics 'Rahu' and 'Ketu' occupy the central houses of the prevailing chart.

Therefore, to briefly summarise the nature of this chart, it can be said that this is one of progress, positivity, good fortune and wisdom, but its favourable characteristics will be hampered by the prevailing negative influences. The main astrological characteristics of the summer solstice are:

  1. Rising Sign: Pisces.
  2. Ascendant's Lord: Jupiter at, 11.46°
  3. Own Sign:
    • Mercury in Gemini.
    • Saturn in Aquarius.
    • Mars in Scorpio.
  4. Enemy Sign:
    • Sun in Gemini.
  5. Debilitated:
    • Moon in Scorpio.
  6. Combusted:
    • Mercury.
    • Venus.

The negative influences described above will diminish later in the day, as the Sun enters Cancer. The main characteristics of the day of the summer solstice are:

  1. Time and Date:
    • US: June 20, at 16:51 EDT
    • UK: June 20, at 20:51 GMT
    • India: June 21, at 01:21 IST
  2. Sun Sign: Gemini, Cancer
  3. Moon Sign: Scorpio
  4. Rising Sign: Pisces
  5. Moon Phase: Waxing, day 14.
  6. Constellation: 'Jyeshtha'
