For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice is a time of celebration, of honoring the light, our connection to the Sun and the Earth.
For many, the Summer Solstice marks a time of celebration and festivities connected to the reverence of Mother Nature and the sun.
Astrologer Cathy Lynn Pagano states that the solstice is a “high point” for personal growth.
“Summer Solstice is another power gate of the Wheel of the Year, the marriage of Heaven and Earth on the longest day and shortest night of the year.
“This solar high point is a time of fertility and growth, heralding the long lazy days of summer.
“Don’t forget to tend your fields this summer and see what you harvest in the fall.”
Jon Haase and Jenny Resnick, of The Spiritual Sun, similarly claim the solstice carries a “powerful deeper message” about the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
Melanie Beckler, author of Angel Messages, said the Summer Solstice is a time of “energetic opening” and “celestial potential” pouring out from the sun.
She explained: “Symbolically the Summer Solstice represented enlightenment, awakening and the triumph of lightness over darkness.
The season of Cancer will last 30 days and is a good time to “balance masculine and feminine energies”.
Astrologers Ophira and Tali Edut, dubbed the “Astro Twins”, said the solstice will kick off Cancer season in astrology.
The “Astro Twins” said: “This is the ideal time to consider ways we can balance the masculine and feminine forces in our lives.
“Where could you use a little more gentle, receptive yin? Where could you yang it up and put in more action-oriented, decisive energy?
“We all contain both energies within us, and in an age where gender is becoming more fluid and redefined than ever, the solstice is an awesome moment to widen our notions of what that means for us.”
Happy Summer Solstice, beloveds.
