In the Northern Hemisphere, June 21 will be the longest day of the year—the summer solstice. (It’s the shortest day in the Southern Hemisphere.) The zodiac signs in Western astrology are determined by the position of the sun on the day of your birth, which means the solstice is an important event. According to astrologer and Tao master Sharon Smith, the day will be quiet for Aries. “The summer solstice hits your solar fourth house,” Smith says, “so it’s a good time for a family reunion or that home improvement project you’ve been thinking about.” Check out these surprising facts about the winter solstice.

For Taurus, it’s not just the summer solstice that’s significant this year, but the position of the planet Uranus, explains Smith: “Uranus, the planet of sudden change and excitement, moved into Taurus on May 15 after seven years in Aries. If your birthday falls from April 20 to 23, you have an electrical aura around you and excitement and change is in the air.” This event is rare, and it should rev up your engine and amplify your productivity.
