Summer Solstice Newsletter

The morning daylight exuberance crest’s and stands still while the earth and sun meet on the June Solstice, a motionless moment in time. We are nourished and embraced with longer days and shorter nights in the Northern hemisphere. The stillness of light lasts for three days and is an opportunity for rejuvenating and expanding our spirit while reconnecting with the flora, fauna, fungi and all its creatures.

Take time to gather with others celebrating nature’s guiding genius of earth’s abundance. Our participation and intention are captured by the potency of the sun’s radiance, illuminating all communities outdoors. To commemorate the sun, embody a simple ritual that awakens our ancient uninhibited natural self. Focus and breathe, let the breath synchronize with your surroundings. Express the feeling of this mood thru physicality, by dancing, painting, singing, journaling, and storytelling. In the act of expressing our emotions, we are able to find navigational instructions that guide our course for the future to ensure a good harvest.

The basic themes playing out for the summer season:

In the early morning light, the solstice at 0° Cancer, starts the summer with Mercury sextiling Mars and Venus. This planetary action upgrades our mindset while adding the potential for creativity, courage, taking risks and some drama. Depending upon which house these planets reside in natally, they can contribute to areas for steady growth. The moon in Leo charms us with happiness, playfulness and not taking things too seriously. A few challenging aspects with the sun are Pluto and Neptune bringing up idealism, disillusionment, insecurities, and lack of boundaries or old thought patterns that hold you back. There is an opportunity for spiritual development with Jupiter sextiling Saturn. Reflect on what you can bring into form with a creative clearer vision for manifesting. If there are setbacks, timing is key and eventually it will work in your favor. When things seem out of control surrender to the feelings and engage in activities that have meaning. It’s helpful to maintain a sense of personal empowerment and objectivity.
