Solstice full moon

Solstice + Full Moon=Cosmic Gold!

Solstice full moon“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

Friday the 13th Full Moon: Illuminate, Balance, Re-Group, Re-Charge

Friday 13th Full Moon“Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface.”~ Marianne Williamson

Nothing like a Friday the 13th full moon while mercury is in retrograde to stir things up! The good news is that you have a rare opportunity to harness the energies at hand and really clear out those places you’ve been feeling stuck

The powerful energy of a full moon gives us the opportunity to illuminate what was once in darkness. Friday the 13th reminds us to face our fears and illusions. Mercury Retrograde asks us to reflect on what we are seeing and together those forces invite us to re-group, let go and re-charge.


All full moons are packed with power and people handle this intense energy in different ways. It’s no coincidence (or surprise) that people go a little crazy during a full moon and since it falls on Friday the 13th superstition will run rampant.

In the past week if you been feeling “buzzy”, unsettled, you’ve had trouble sleeping, experienced vivid (or lucid) dreams, or you feel overwhelmed it is most certainly the energy of the full moon. Just as the full moon illuminates the night sky, so too it lights up and magnifies energies you’re working on releasing so you can move forward. If you take time to ground and set your intentions she will help you gain clarity by illuminating your path and direction. A full moon can turn your world upside down or give you a boost forward. It all depends on if you resist or go with the flow of the energy.

A full moon during mercury retrograde is a positive force which helps  “light up” those areas of your subconscious that have up until now been in darkness. A full moon amplifies energy and since mercury retrograde brings a “re-visiting” of energies we are working on releasing you may feel like everything is “larger than life”. There has never been a better time to un-plug, reflect, re-group.


Once you’ve “detoxified” you must fill up. Full moons have the power to illuminate but they are also filled with energy. The moon invites us to transform by using her energy to re-charge. Allow the moon energies to fill you up just as you would use the energy of the sun. In fact it’s a wonderful idea to use both the energy of the sun AND moon in harmony and balance.

Breathe in peace and power and balance. Breathe in certainty, enthusiasm and joy. Set new intentions and re-energize yourself and your dreams. Re-charge and breathe new life into your life. Use this Friday the 13th Full Moon to illuminate and help you face your fears and illusions. Use Mercury Retrograde to reflect, re-group and recharge. You won’t have another opportunity for this particular alignment until the year 2049. No time like the present to balance and re-engage.~Shine Your Light Debbie
