“My soul is in the sky.”
Puck – A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Tuesday 21st June 2022 at 10:13am is the summer solstice. This powerful time is when the sun reaches its peak, from our perspective in the Northern Hemisphere, before it begins its descent back towards the winter solstice (in the Southern Hemisphere, this is reversed, so the date marks winter solstice). It is the day that summer officially begins, astrologically speaking, and is met with all sorts of traditional celebrations, gatherings, bonfires, and other ritual practices.
DO I REALLY ENGAGE WITH MY FEELINGS OR THE ENERGIES AROUND ME AS MUCH AS I COULD?
But the summer solstice is more than just the longest day of the year, it also heralds a seasonal shift, changes and new beginnings. The 2022 is all about finding balance in your life and bringing about the courage to be the boldest, brightest version of yourself.
WHAT CAN I DO TO BE LIVING AS MY BOLDEST, BRIGHTEST, AUTHENTIC SELF?
It’s also a time of rebalancing the feminine and masculine energies. The sun represents masculine energy and at the solstice, the sun is at its brightest and most powerful. Meanwhile, the Earth, represents feminine energy, is abundant and ripe. The two pause together in the sky for a moment, creating a powerful union, a moment of relationship, balance, and connection, with the symbolic implication of sexuality and fertility at their peak. Thinking of starting a family? What better time than Midsummer…
COULD I BE MORE BALANCED IN MY LIFE/ MY RELATIONSHIPS? HOW CAN I BECOME MORE BALANCED?
As the summer solstice ushers in a new season, it’s time for us to see the beauty of nature and to celebrate everything our planet has given us. So, here’s a suggestion, why not go outside and watch the sunrise? Set your alarm early and take a long walk. Breath in that beautiful Prana, Mother Earth provides us and be at one with nature.
WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MORE TIME FOR MYSELF?
The summer solstice is an energetically charged day and an important time to set intentions for the remainder of the year. It symbolizes prosperity, extravagance, and good spirits, and is a chance to reflect on yourself and look forward to what’s to come. It’s the start of a new chapter, so it’s a great time to make plans and review your long-term goals.
