Dogs! Here is your celestial scoop. You’ve probably noticed the long days of sunshine, leading up to the Summer Solstice on June 21. While this has meant extra time with friends at the evening dog park meet, the Solstice marks the beginning of the cycle toward shortening days. The Sun also entered Cancer on Saturday, leading to an increased desire for security and safety. You may suddenly find yourself desiring a leash walk over an off-leash romp. It’s understandable. With the ongoing squares between Uranus and Pluto through 2015, our instincts are guided to hunker down to avoid uncertainty. But remember, while coming to a sit-stay stand-still may seem the safe thing to do, this approach comes with its own risks. Instead, tap into Cancer’s nurturing energy to allow yourself to grow and explore. Dogs, it’s okay to enjoy a run on the beach or an unexpected encounter with a new furry friend. Your sense of safety and security comes from embracing change, not running from it. Now get out there and have a great day!
