On the Summer Solstice we celebrate the longest day and shortest night. It is a good day to celebrate all that we have worked through so far this year, & as well to balance masculine and feminine energies within us.
“In astrology, the Sun is associated with the masculine principle. The Cancer zodiac sign rules the feminine principle and is governed by the emotional moon. So we have the masculine Sun stopping in its tracks to usher in a new, sisterly solar cycle. (What a gentleman!).
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.
This Midsummer Day is a magical point when you can connect with the benevolent forces of the Universe. Light a candle and write down your wishes for the year ahead. You deserve the best. And there’s every good reason to think that you will get it. Concentrate and focus on your dreams today.” ~excerpt from http://astrostyle.com/summer-solstice/
It is a great time to enjoy nature, to celebrate and connect with community and to honor all the work it has taken you to grow this far.
