Summer solstice is the official start of the summer season and the longest day of the year. The days started to get longer on the winter solstice and will culminate today with the sun rising at 5:24am ET and setting at 8:30pm ET. We will enjoy a total of 15 hours of sunlight! Everyday after today the days are going into their descent into darkness. When we arrive at the autumn equinox in September the days and the nights will be of equal length. This is my favorite time of year, the sun rises at 6:45am and sets at 6:51pm et.
In the meantime, let's talk about the zodiac signs and element associated with summer along with the corresponding tarot cards. Each sign has six tarot cards directly associated with it. If you take a look at the astrology and tarot wheel you will find 70 of the 78 tarot cards. Do you know which cards are not associated with a zodiac sign?
