The solstice welcomes the entry of the Sun into Cancer, one of the four Cardinal ingresses of the zodiac. The symbolic moment of start of the next quarter year is thought to give a hint of what may be to come. Though how useful ingress charts are is questionable.
This Cancer Ingress has the Sun inconjunct Pluto so power issues will loom large with certain individuals living out the bullying, coercive side of Pluto, while others get suppressed. There is an excitable, uncompromising and disruptive feel with Uranus square Mars and Venus. Though a steadying Saturn sextile Jupiter and a comforting and hopeful Jupiter North Node square Moon will add a note of common sense and cheer.
The Cancer Ingress of 2020 when the lockdown had been in operation for three months had the Moon in an irritable and panicky square to Mars Neptune in Pisces – with a super-charged Jupiter Pluto in Capricorn ramping up the mood, negative and positive – and inducing a rules don’t-apply-to-us mentality in some.
The previous Capricorn Ingress of December 21 2019 which is when the first COVID case emerged, set for China had the Sun Jupiter conjunction straddling the Midheaven, to focus all eyes eastwards and in best Jupiterian ‘Miracle Grow’ fashion creating a rapidly expanding, far-flung phenomenon. There was also the restrictive/hardship Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn – and an emotionally rattled Venus square Uranus opposition Moon.
I’m still not convinced that ingress charts tell us much that we would not know from other predictive influences. But feel free to comment.
