The first day of June—the summer solstice month—brought a renewed sense of inspiration to me. I awoke at 3 a.m. with my mind moving in many directions for at least an hour. After my morning walk, the energy had organized itself into inspiration and ideas. I was able to sit down and let the creativity flow into several pages of thoughtful concepts that could be fleshed out at a later time. The flow that I experienced was completely organic, and one of the concepts that came to me explained why this occurred.
Tap into the Summer Solstice
As we head toward the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere on June 20, the summer solstice energy is revving up. Although I subconsciously tapped into this energy, why not do it consciously so you can take full advantage. Allow yourself to feel the expansive energy. Allow the extension of daylight to infuse your body, mind and spirit, providing you the space to expand your inner light.
As the days grow longer and daylight increases, we are supported in our intention and efforts toward inner expansion. The celestial energies are with us.
Even Mercury retrograde, which began May 29 and can bring external delays and require extra attention to details, is giving us time to cultivate our inner light. This allows us to fill ourselves so we are fueled and ready to go when Mercury goes direct on June 22, just a couple days after the Summer Solstice.
Utilize the Solstice Energy
Use this time to your advantage by holding an inward focus for the next few weeks. Then you can be ready to reap the rewards of our preparations via external manifestation and progress, come late June.
Although I am not an astrologer, my mother was, and I can feel the energy of this year’s solstice. Just as the waxing moon (growing toward fullness) is an expansive, energy-building time, I sense this solstice time is similar, yet more intense, as it only occurs once a year.
I suggest you use this time not only to expand your energy, but also to set intentions and create a foundation for taking action on your goals when the energies and opportunities are ripe for moving forward at full steam. Every moment in time is an opportunity for personal growth and spiritual upliftment. Connecting with the prevailing forces enables you to use the momentum of the natural flow.
