The word “solstice” is derived from the Latin words, “sol” meaning sun and “sistere” meaning to stand still. The Solstice is when the sun stands still in the sky creating shorter days in the Summer and longer days in the winter.
The June Solstice marks the end of the first astrological quarter and the first half of the year. At this time, it is helpful to reflect on your journey up to this point and ask yourself what you want to bring into the rest of the year. The energies of the Solstice are extremely potent.
This is a very powerful time of the year.
The solstice is a momentous shift in energy. The higher realms are more accessible as Earth is aligned with the Galactic Center (the central point of the Milky Way) and the Great Central Sun (the Center of the Cosmos). We are encouraged to take a leap into expanding our consciousness and diving deep into our soul work.
During the Summer Solstice, the highest point energetically speaking, we are drenched in the illuminating light of the Sun as everything we need to release is bathed in light.
During the Winter Solstice, the lowest point of the year energetically, we experience more “dark nights of the soul”. This time of dormancy is offers us the time we need to heal.
Our energy and inner power is expanded at this time. The days that follow a Full Moon are full of potent energy assisting us with our integration the the lessons and downloads we received. We are better connected to the collective consciousness and All That Is.
It’s time to take things to the next level! It is also a time of rebirth. Here’s what to do:
- Give yourself the time you need to process this shift. If you aren’t feeling it already, your internal system, your subconscious is changing, rewriting your desires, values, perspectives, and encouraging you to change your actions and thought patterns.
- Reflect deeply on your journey. Your inner wisdom is stronger at this time and you will have more access to your Akashic wisdom to better serve you on your journey moving forward.
- Celebrate this time and connection. Have a bonfire, perform a ritual, have a get together, dance in the sun, play light music
- Spend as much time in meditation as possible. Ask questions and be open to receive the answers
- Sage your home and your space.
- Raise the vibrations of your home with fresh flowers, incense, candles, scents of home cooked meals, laughter.
The energy from the June Solstice is a bit more intense as it is follows a Full Moon by a few days as well as carrying the energy of the number “3”.
2019 is a number “3” year and June 21, 2019 is a number “3” day. The number “3” is a powerful number for spiritual growth, our communication, self-expression, connection to Source, confidence, expansion of our consciousness.
We are encouraged to find our truth, speak our truth, and live our truth. We will receive guidance and support in our search for truth in nature. During the June Solstice, our connection to Mother Nature is strengthened and we will find ourselves heavily inspired by nature.
By honoring and celebrating the Solstice, you are honoring and celebrating yourself and your connection to Gaia. Allow yourself this time to tap into the energies of the Sun and let this flow through you influencing your life positively.
Neptune goes retrograde just a few hours before the solstice. We are challenges to really let go of our old selves and welcome in the person we are meant to be. To let go of self-limiting beliefs. Remove bad patterns and to let go of everything that no longer serves us.
Our Thoughts Create Our Reality
This statement is true every day of the year. At this time, with the magic of the number 3, Neptune Retrograde, The Full Moon in Sagittarius, and the Solstice, our thoughts, our desires, our wishes are manifested at a greater pace.
We can create the person we want to be, the world we want to live in with loving thoughts and allowing ourselves to tap into the energy that is bathing us in the light.
