On the Origins of Flag Day June 14 from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs…
“That the flag of the United States shall be of thirteen stripes of alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white in a blue field, representing the new constellation. This was the resolution adopted by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The resolution was made following the report of a special committee which had been assigned to suggest the flag’s design.”
Betsy Ross (born January 1, 1752) is credited by her relatives as having created the first American Flag.
President Harry Truman signed into law on August 3, 1949 that June 14 be National Flag Day although it is not an official federal holiday. Pennsylvania is the only state that has made June 14, Flag Day, an official holiday while New York State recognizes the second Sunday in June as Flag Day.
Dateline June 13, 2022: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for two very significant days (Tuesday June 14 and Wednesday June 15). Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 40 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.
The Full Moon on June 14 – with the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius – is known in esoteric circles as World Invocation Day and the Festival of Humanity as it is being blessed by the Christ as the head of the Hierarchy of Divine Teachers and Masters overlighting our earthly life. In America, this date is celebrated as Flag Day.
You can read more about the primary two dates for the Gemini-Sagittarius Full Moon in two key paragraphs further below. Please consider the merits of subscribing to the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App to strengthen your already developing skills as a seer who can tune into the future ahead of time.
In addition, this Full Moon carries extra significance as Venus and Pallas Athena form a conjunction at 21 degrees of Taurus on the transiting Mean North Node of the Moon. Clearly, this is a very rare and potent sky configuration as it brings together a major planet, key asteroid and the fate-destiny essence of the lunar orbit. Problem-solving, strategic thinking, creative artistic ingenuity and knowledge-wisdom gathering are empowered greatly.
On Wednesday June 15, the day after the Full Moon, there is another rare heavenly alignment as the red planet Mars unites with Chiron at 16 degrees of Aries. Just one day later on Thursday June 16, the Sun trines Saturn in Aquarius and then moves on to square Neptune in Pisces. Therefore, the time-period between June 14 and June 16 is filled with enormous significance – nationally and globally.
Future Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Tuesday June 14 and Wednesday June 15 (All times are listed in PDT.)
Tuesday June 14 As indicated in the last few calendar entries, the potent Full Moon is now a reality — energizing 24 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius at 4:53am. In esoteric circles, this Full Moon is known as World Invocation Day and the Festival of Humanity as it is being blessed by the Christ as the head of the Hierarchy of Divine Teachers and Masters overlighting our earthy life. Individual and group meditations are in sync with this high-level solar-lunar polarity. Send out your healing thoughts, prayers and affirmations to humanity and the realms of Mother Earth. Be aware of a 7+ hour void lunar twilight zone that begins when the Moon squares Neptune in Pisces (7:59am) and continues until earthy Capricorn arrives on the scene at 3:15pm. However, revelations abound since Venus unites with Pallas Athena at 21 degrees of Taurus (7:48pm) and then Venus moves on to unite with the Mean Lunar North Node at the same Taurus degree placement (11:15pm). Problem-solving, strategic thinking, creative artistic ingenuity and knowledge-wisdom gathering are empowered greatly. Because Mercury makes a tense, 45-degree link-up with Chiron (12:38pm) and Venus forms the same aspect to Jupiter (11:21pm), the cosmos is reminding you that it is wise to abandon superficial concerns while rising up to fulfill your Higher Destiny in this lifetime.

Wednesday June 15 Today and tomorrow constitute a 48-hour time-period to distribute the lofty spiritual energies that have just bathed humanity and Mother Earth during Tuesday’s Full Moon. Play the role of peacemaker and goodwill ambassador far and wide. Following the Venus and Pallas Athena union in Taurus yesterday and Venus merging with the Mean Lunar North Node, now it is Pallas Athena’s turn to conjure up creative magic with the Mean Lunar North Node at 21 degrees of Taurus (4:03am). The problem-solving and strategic thinking abilities reinforced on Tuesday remain super-strong even though Jupiter in Aries takes a swipe at Pallas Athena via a 45-degree aspect (6:55am). Another major celestial conjunction is Mars and Chiron at 16 degrees of Aries (7:18am). A dynamo of healing vibrations is pervasive, but make sure you don’t project anger on to well-meaning dear ones. Investment planning is back in style since Vesta in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus align in an inspirational, 72-degree connection (2:04pm) and the Moon in Capricorn trine Uranus (6:11pm) adds to the focus on enhancing your business acumen. Get set for a Thursday that is likely to test your stamina and patience. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
