“Every integral man has inside him, in his heart of hearts, a mystic center around which all else revolves. This mystic whirling lends unity to his thoughts and actions; it helps him find or invent the cosmic harmony. For some this center is love, for others kindness or beauty, others the thirst for knowledge or the longing for gold and power. They examine the relative value of all else and subordinate it to this central passion.”~Nikos Kazantzakis
On June 20, 2016 we will be blessed with the event of (almost) a lifetime. For the first time in 70 years the summer solstice falls on the same day as the full “strawberry” moon. Oh yes energy junkies this one is especially for you but we will ALL hit the cosmic jackpot!
The summer Solstice happens at 6:34pm. This is when the sun stands still at its northernmost point (as seen from Earth) and hangs there a bit before heading south again. The Solstice marks the longest “day”. In New York, for instance, there will be over 15 hours of sunlight.
As if that doesn’t light us up, once the sun sets we are graced with the brightest full moon of the year. The June 20th full moon, is the only night in the month when the moon is in the sky all evening long. (If you’re interested in Solstice and full moon ceremonies on the same day, check out a sunrise and sunset calculator.)
What does all this mean for us?
June 20th we hit “cosmic gold”! There will be very little in darkness for the entire day or night. Emotions are running high and for most sensitives this is both a blessing and a curse. With both events on the same day it is important to remember your grounding. Take time in stillness to separate your energy and emotions from those around you. The sun and moon have the power to help you. Simply soak in the energy and give yourself permission to release.
With all this light you may experience a breakthrough with your awareness. Every time we turn our attention within we are, in a sense, exercising our awareness and just like a muscle, the more we exercise it, the stronger and brighter it gets. The cosmic arena and the space within you will be filled with sparks of brilliance.
Soaking up the solstice sun helps us melt away a few of our “optical delusions”. Once some of those filters have cleared we pave the way to open our hearts, minds and souls to seeing the truth.
Soaking up the light of full moon at this time helps us clear karmic patterns and bring forgiveness into our interpersonal relationships. Between the power of the sun and the moon and our commitment to our own growth, we clear the slate so we can begin again for the very first time.
We have a tremendous opportunity for setting intentions that will manifest in the days to come but this is not a time to sit back and let the universe decide. It’s our decision. It’s up to each of us to set our intentions clearly and create a space for manifesting. Once we do our part, the universe can do its job of bringing it to us. The power of the source is there but it all begins within you; The “mystic center around which all else revolves”. The harmony in your heart of hearts.
Solstice is a magnificent, magical and powerful time; Full moons offer gentle illumination. What a beautiful combination we are about to experience! Engage it with presence and gratitude. Bring yourself into alignment and use the Solstice + Full Moon to equal Cosmic Gold!~Shine Your Light Debbie
