Summer Solstice + Full Strawberry Moon

Today marks an event that has not occurred in over 70 years. The Sun is at its most powerful, beginning the season of summer, while the Moon has also reached full illumination. So the Sun, representing vitality, strength, action, confidence, joy, expression, warmth, life-sustenance, growth, etc., is matching the Moon, representing the movement of water, emotion, intuition, conscious-subconscious-unconscious, receptivity, introspection, and the realm of night (that which is hidden by darkness). Together, these planets symbolize two powerful archetypal energies that govern how we live our life. Today, I believe we are given a chance to bring balance to the two. Potent magic is available today that can heal our past and present, while sowing seeds for future well-being. There are many ways to honor this cosmic happening, and receive benefit. Find your own. Here are a few suggestions should you feel stumped:

Write down some intentions or affirmations. With a candle burning, and your spirit centered, burn this paper. Make sure you have a fire proof receptacle to do this in, and preferably do it outside. 

Plant some actual seeds into a garden, or pot of soil. They can be herbs, flowers, anything. The point is that your intentions are physically being planted in soil, and will grow with the plants. It is a beautiful way to connect with nature and connect with yourself. Never under estimate the power of symbolic gestures, such as this act. They work with your subconscious, and I believe, emit vibrations that work to shape your life. 

Clean out some stagnant energy in your wallet, home, car, etc. Again this is a symbolic way to affirm that the old is out, and the new is welcome. Feng Shui is popular for good reason. It works. 

Do some journaling if you feel pent up emotions. Get them all out on paper as a kind of purging. You will feel lighter because it won't be stuck inside you with no expression anymore.

Decorate your altar if you have one. Place Tarot cards that you are currently working with, as well as Summer flowers, and gemstones/crystals of your choice. Get creative. The joy that goes into a personal altar can bring magical change into your life. 

Hang out in NATURE!!!!!!!! Today is the longest day of the year so go out and get some sunshine! Let the power of the sun teach you how to be strong, warm, joyous, vital, confident and optimistic! Enjoy loved ones, plants and animals. CELEBRATE!!!!!!! Celebrate life, love, and the blessings you enjoy. Be grateful for what you have. 

I wish you all the blessings the Universe has to offer you. I hold intentions for healing of humanity and mother earth. We all deserve peace, equality, and freedom. There is a saying in Sanskrit that goes  Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu, which means "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all." If all of us had this attitude, there would be no such thing as violence, hatred, greed, and intolerance. I hope that more of us will try. I certainly am not perfect at all. I am still working on myself. I am also in service to those who would like to receive a reading from me! I bring my best self to the table, and offer Divination with Love and Light. 

As above, So Below. 

Blessed Be.     ) O (
