… pause. reflect. harmonize …
Today is the longest day of the year in the north; in the south it is the longest night. No matter where we be, it is time to Celebrate the Light!
Solstice is the time when light and dark, in the north and the south, are in a kind of ‘peak’ balance. It’s a time to unify heart and mind; and to harmonize dualities. It is also a time when the veil between the spiritual and material worlds is thin; a time when Spirit connection is attained with greater ease. It is believed that Earth’s entire energy grid comes into harmony, and that Earth’s healing powers are strongest at this time. It is a poignant time to pause.
Solstice, Cancer Sun, and waning Moon, all call us inward. Time to reflect, review, release, revise and realign. Solstice asks us to delve deeply into who we are and where we want to be going. Cancer Sun brings compassion, sensitivity, unconditional love and deep nurture. Cancer urges us to flow into the Waters and to focus on self-care. By drawing on Cancer’s gifts, we can better align with Earth’s healing powers; our powers for self-healing are also strong at this time (Chiron-Aries).
Moon now in Aries (yesterday @2037pdt, just hours before Solstice exact) brings boldness and fearlessness. Moon and Sun together meld assertiveness and compassion; bold action and deep caring; and they help us create balance and peace. There’s also a stellium in Aries.The powers of the stellium planets (Moon, Chiron, Jupiter and Mars) come together as one force; feeling, healing, expansion and action all align and merge. This force helps us to step into our own power; and to stay true, in heart, mind and action, to what we value.
It is time to look into the dark and into the light. Time to go with the flow and to tend inner fire. Time to connect with source and flow into grace-filled space. Time to tune to all that warms heart and Spirit. Time to deeply feel the completeness of home within. Time to to align your heart beat to the thrum of the Earth. Time to Celebrate the Light! And time, always, to …
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
May you be filled to with Spirit’s Blessings
and all the gifts of Earth & Cosmos
resident in You and all you Be
