The longest day of the year is here. It is not only the beginning of Summer, a season for joy, fun and some more sun light (always welcome). This is also a time for reviewing our the first half of the year. This Solstice is also the messenger of the eclipse that is just days away!
In many ancient traditions the Summer solstice was a turning point, after it the days began their slow motion to become shorter. Darkness will be a little more present every coming day from the Summer solstice on. A time of maturity and a symbol of death. Death not necessary as destruction and extinction, but of the old that is fading to give way to the new. (Just as the Winter solstice occurring in the shorter and darker day of the year is a time to celebrate the slow coming of longer days where light would promote life).
The skies are full of energy and the time is right to have fun and view our lives with humour. We need true healthy laughter that allows us to acknowledge that our shortcomings are of no importance they just give us our particular colouring and a gentle lesson to be learned.
Also this is a good time for renewal. A time to be selective. A time to leave behind what hinders and burdens us. Ghost form the past, fears, emotional and mental patterns that keep us stagnant may melt in the Summer sun with the energy provided by the eclipse!
New opportunities are there for everyone. Think of what you need to do, and what the Universe is offering you. Release what needs to be left behind and search for inner light to create and recognise what we really are and can do for ourselves and others. So, get your sun shades, smile, and look at the horizon to see what is coming ahead and what options are shining in the dim light of the eclipse in a Summer afternoon. At least, take the time to show your love to all those that you love. What you put into life will come back to you!
P.S. I'm going to put some sunscreen on the dragon. Big job ahead of me!
