Horoscope: June 21 marks summer solstice, our longest day of the year
Nicole Kidman was born on June 20, 1967. She won an Academy Award for her portrayal of legendary writer Virginia Woolf in "The Hours."

Thursday, June 16: As the moon moves from “serious Capricorn” to “look to the future Aquarius,” we see powerful activity with the sun connecting positively with Saturn and then being challenged by Neptune. It’s a day where emotions change and the truth, while perhaps a little bitter, at least does not deceive and confuse. It was June 16, 2015, that Donald Trump rode the escalator down to the main floor of Trump Tower, officially announcing his bid for the GOP presidential candidacy.

Friday, June 17: A friendly Friday where help comes from Jupiter and Mars, both in Aries. Planning a vacation? Good news from your doctor? Get accepted to a good school or fitness club? Good for you! Canada’s only world heavyweight boxing champion, Tommy Burns, was born June 17, 1881, in Hanover, Ont.

Saturday, June 18: As Saturn in Aquarius squares Venus in Taurus, we may find ourselves stepping back from one or more relationship. Loyalties may be questioned. “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” written and performed by Bryan Adams, was released on June 18, 1991, and was Billboard’s “Song of the Year” for 1991.

Sunday, June 19: With the moon in Pisces, there is an undoubted spirit moving through this day. In relationships it will be helpful. The more self-centered it is, the more trouble it causes. It was on this day in 1865 that a proclamation in Texas set all former slaves free. It has since become known as “Juneteenth.”

Monday, June 20: This is the day of the third-quarter moon in Pisces with the sun at 29 degrees of Gemini and the moon at 29 degrees of Pisces. This is significant because when we divide the 360 degrees of the zodiac into 12 signs, we see each sign has 30 degrees. If we start each sign at zero, then 29 is the last degree. They are known as “anaretic” degrees.” The next degree is in the next sign. Happy birthday to Nicole Kidman, born June 20, 1967, in Honolulu. She is most famous for playing Virginia Woolf in “The Hours,” a role for which she won an Academy Award.

Tuesday, June 21: At 8:34 this evening, the sun enters Cancer and we have the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere. No matter where you live, the 21st of June is one of the most important days of the year. The sun is either at the highest point in the sky, or at the lowest. This marks a culmination – a point of “no return.” We either have the longest day or the longest night of the year. Things are about to shift. Our priorities may change. On this magical day, tune in and reflect on whether you’re at a crossroad in your life. The universe will guide you on the next course of action. Happy birthday to Prince William, second (or third) in line to the British Throne, as he turns 40 today.

Wednesday, June 22: Another change today as Venus moves from her home sign of Taurus into quick-thinking Cancer. Venus shows us what we value. If in Taurus, Venus valued stability and comfort. When it’s in Gemini, Venus values curiosity and intellectual pursuits. The great Meryl Streep celebrates birthday number 73 today.
