Alchemical Magic is in the air! Get your crystals and drums out! On Monday June 20th, 2016 we will have a very auspicious and magical occurance… On this day the Summer Solstice coincides with the Full Moon in Sagittarius. This means that the sun will reach its point fullness at the same time as moon. This only happens about once every 30 years! This is a potent time for ritual and practices of clarification, release, and celebration! Here are a 3 easy ways you can align with nature celebrate this day:
- Take a moon bath! Find a place where you can see the moon (both sunday night and monday night will be quite bright and powerful). Lay under it for as long as you like. Gaze up at the moon and ask for clarity and insight in your life. Drink in the Lunar soma (nectar), allow it to heal you. If you have crystals, lay them out under the moon to charge them! This is a potent one.
- Celebrate your abundance and set intentions for the next 6 months. Write a list of all the amazing people and things in your life right now. Name your blessings and be grateful! Now is the time to celebrate and thank the great Spirit for the full blessing of your life. You can also set intentions (what do you want to release? what do you want to invoke?), these will take root over the next 6 months as we approach the winter solstice.
- Watch the sun set and sing to it! If you have a drum you can beat your drum and sing to the setting sun. The summer solstice is a the pinnacle of fullness in the solar cycle, and yet the moment the sun begins to set, we begin our descent into the dark time. From here the days grow shorter and darker until we reach the winter solstice. So we sing to the sun, and we thank it for giving us life and for reminding us of the inevitable cycles (light and dark, birth and death, winter and summer) that we must all move through in our lives!
The summer solstice brings the longest days of summer. It is an occasion to celebrate the light of consciousness within ourselves and all other beings.
