Here's What The June 21 Summer Solstice Will Mean For Air Signs

Summer is finally here, and the solstice on June 21 marks the first official day of the season (via The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and includes the most daylight in the Northern Hemisphere. The extra daylight occurs due to the fact that the North Pole is tilted toward the sun, but for us it really means time outside soaking in the rays of that glorious burning star. 

While many may consider the start of summer when schools let out, the Memorial Day holiday, or just when the weather begins to turn warmer, the solstice makes it official. In addition to the changing of the seasons, the event also holds a lot of spiritual ongoings. "It's quite a positive energy," an astrologer named Noush tells My Imperfect Life. "In terms of preparing, I would say it's important to just be open to a new wave of energy that's about to enter your life, be open to something being rebalanced or releasing something that's built up over the winter."

Meanwhile, the summer solstice could prove to be an interesting time for those born under an air sign: Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.

Libra needs to find a work-life balance

If you were born under the sign of Libra (September 22 to October 23), the summer solstice on June 21 may bring a lot of focus to your work life. According to Cosmopolitan, Libra could see a very big opportunity coming their way as it pertains to their career. This may be a surprise to you, but you'll have to make a big decision about whether or not you'll want to tackle such a big responsibility.

Well + Good notes that the sun's position during the solstice falls in Libra's 10th house of career, and could highlight all of your skills allowing others to really see how valuable you are to the team. "Really put yourself out there and show off your abilities," says astrologer Narayana Montúfar. "Doing so could help you attract the resources you need to bring an important project to fruition."

However, CBC reveals that focusing too much on work may not be a good idea during the summer solstice. After all, summer is all about fun and relaxation, right? While you may be killing it at your job, be sure to carve out plenty of time for self-care, and to spend time with friends and family during the warm days. Adopting the work hard, play hard mindset could be beneficial around the time of the solstice, and enjoying your life should be a priority.

So find that work-life balance, Libra, and things should be just fine.

Aquarius may feel very productive during the solstice

If you're an Aquarius (born between January 19 and February 18), the summer solstice on June 21 will be a time of high productivity for you. Aquarius may feel the need to organize many aspects of their life as the warm summer days begin (via Well + Good). The solstice will highlight your sixth house or daily rituals, which could mean now is the perfect time to set a new schedule and figure out the perfect routine that allows you to be the most productive throughout the day. Of course, don't forget to add time for self-care and relaxation along the way.

CBC adds that Aquarius may need to pay closer attention to their finances around the solstice as well. Perhaps it's time to create a budget and stick to it, or simply figure out a savings plan that works for you. Whatever you do, spend your money wisely this season, as it will be easy to get carried away during the fun summer months.

In addition, Cosmopolitan notes that Aquarius may just find themselves tapping into a new side of their personality. If you've been feeling drawn to plants lately, go with it. Plant flowers or veggies and really dig into your new hobby (pun intended). You may just find a sense of peace in gardening.

It appears that Aquarius will have a lot to think about during the summer solstice, but that finding time to relax could be key.

Gemini will feel some good vibes during the summer solstice on June 21

For those who are Geminis (born between May 20 and June 20), the summer solstice on June 21 will be all about the good vibes. Astrologer Narayana Montúfar tells Well + Good that it will also be a time for the sign to be open and honest. "Lucky Geminis will be asked to speak their truth, as the moon will be forming a positive sextile with their ruling planet of Mercury in their sign," Montúfar said. 

Cosmopolitan suggests that Gemini do everything with pride during the solstice. Although the air sign may find some things challenging, keeping your head up and dedicating yourself to work will prove to be beneficial during any obstacles that may come along. Meanwhile, CBC notes that Gemini may want to pull a bit of focus toward their career during this time as well.

It might be time to really think about what you want out of your career and if you're getting it, Gemini. Can you achieve your goals in your current situation, or do you need to make some big changes in order to work toward the life and career you've always wanted? A little pondering on the situation could add some clarity and help you decide on any future moves.

It appears that air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini will have some big things happening during the summer solstice and that they'll have to continue to work to build their ideal lives.
