Any minute now (ok, Wednesday) will be the summer solstice. June 21st is the longest day of the year, the beginning of official summer (though I don’t think the weather is on that schedule here on the East broiling Coast), and, according to Beliefnet astrologist Shelley L.

We need to strengthen our ability to tolerate ambiguity, frustration, and all of the ‘young-soul’ acting out that is going on around us.”
It also looks like it’s going to be a bumpy summer for Bush and Cheney, and a happening time for Al Gore and Oprah—and tumultuous actual weather for many of us. To read more, go here.
