We take joy in the vast abundance of new life and an inner awakening. We hold the the optimism of a bountiful harvest and a prosperous fall.
But at this moment during the longest, most light-filled day of the year, we must not forget the balance of life and death. The continuous cycle of rebirth. As of tomorrow, the days begin to shorten as darkness of the night grows.
Our neighbors in the Southern Hemisphere are celebrating the start of their Winter. As crops slowly die and winter takes over, the cycle of life is now dormant - at rest, silently healing, patiently awaiting its time of rebirth.
Wherever you are in the world, I urge you to spend time appreciating your space on this Earth. Form a deeper, more meaningful connection with the nature and cycles of seasons around you. Notice the similarities between the changes you see in nature and within yourself. The shedding of old thought patterns, old habits and old cycles. The rebirth of self - including new experiences, new priorities and new passions.
Whether your days are now growing or receding, this special day holds significance in finding balance in your cycle of life. Whether this means exploring your light or learning to celebrate your darkness, this day can be profound.
As the moon is currently waning, now is a good time to plan for the approaching Dark Moon of July 2nd. This Dark Moon coincides with a particularly powerful Solar Eclipse, which can only be witnessed from parts of Africa. The rare Dark Moon - Solar Eclipse combination is ideal for strong banishing rituals, as the polarizing energies bring us out of darkness and once back into full light. Rituals performed on the night of July 1st and July 2nd will bring about sudden change. You can think of this astrological event as the Falling Tower tarot card. What did not and does not currently work for you, will now come to an abrupt end. Whether you are needing to banish negative influences in your life or are fed up with self-sabotage, use the Dark Moon - Solar Eclipse energies to put an end to all that no longer serves you.
