June 16th writing prompts: the pleasures of summer

The writing studio met yesterday with the waning crescent Moon in Taurus, edging closer to this Sunday’s Solar Eclipse in Cancer, just a few hours after Saturday’s Summer Solstice. The Solstice is the culmination of the Solar year, made more powerful this year by the Eclipse. Cancer is the sign of the ‘Great Mother’, and points us to our home, roots, and foundation with care.

Our prompts for the short writing session were these:

  • Name some pleasures of summer; or
  • Describe a favorite summer memory.

Our longer writing period began with these prompts:

  • Describe the sensations of all five senses for the scene in the photo; or
  • What is coming to light for you/your character at this mid-point of the year, what new ‘care’ might you find?
