Summer Solstice 2016 – June 20, 2016 6:34 PM EST
We officially kick off summer with this fantastic solstice. This is one filled with high-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant energy that will promote a love of adventure, change, and exploring new territory. You won’t be satisfied to be confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. It will stir up your restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything you’ve yet experienced. Your dreams and visions for the future will be stronger than ever. The possibility of discovering something new will propel your curiosities in whatever realm you choose to play in. You will feel the desire to break free of any earthly bonds that keep you from pursuing your higher self’s ambitions and goals. You want your wings to soar.
Visions will seem larger than life. The ability to zero in on minutia and yet perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles will only enhance any light work you pursue. Don’t get bogged down in all of the nitty gritty details or what may be seen as trivialities. Keep focused on the larger issues at hand. Mostly, don’t second guess your gut instinct.
This summer will be about our connections to the past, whether it be your family, your childhood, those places you associate with safety and security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong will be very important. You are being called to bring forth and honor your ancestors; those from the old world. This is not a time for shallow honors or simple nods, this is a time to dig down deep into those roots and get to the bottom of where your soul truly come from.
The blood of our ancestors carries with it all the power and mysticism from the older days. It is an innate connection to the past and the future. It ties us to deep spiritual wellsprings that we can harvest and use for the betterment of the world. How you work with this energy will be equally as important. You are also feeding into that wellspring for future generations. Be careful what you feed it.
For all the healers out there, this will be a summer of immense growth if you choose to embark on that journey. The full moon kicked it off… now that energy will continue over the next several months. Try to pay attention to the feelings and less attention to the logic or abstract principle that tend to bind us into missing the bigger picture. Start looking beyond the superficial systems and into the deeper core of your clients. You may find yourself playing the role of a counselor as well as a healer, but both roles are important to healing the cracks our world causes in people.
Lastly, the summer will also be about stronger development of foresight, or the ability to perceive things which are not obvious to other people; the growth of having the uncanny ability to “read” people and situations without being told anything about them. However, the focus as always must remain on how discriminate between a true psychic perception and imagination. You will have the ability to start prying into corners that were once out of your reach. Connecting to other realms you thought impossible will now become accessible.
Take this magnificent solstice and kick off the next few months of growth with a strong plan and proper foot forward. Use this energy wisely and you will go far.
