In taking time to reflect and celebrate on the summer solstice, you join an ancient human practice designed to honor the regenerative powers of the Sun, as well as acknowledge the fertility and growth so abundant in the natural world. With the Moon in intuitive Scorpio at this solstice, transformation is possible. A full Moon shortly after the solstice adds to the insight and clarity prevalent at this powerful time of year.
The summer solstice correlates with the Sun entering Cancer, a sign of home, history and the heart. After the frantic energy of the Sun in Gemini, which creates a frenetic, busy, multitasking period, the solstice reminds us of the importance of quality time, and of quiet rest in places of sanctuary. That said, sleep can be hard to come by, as your spirit is inspired by the long days of sunlight.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
