The summer solstice is upon us. Here in Montana is occurs tonight, June 20, at 10:24 PM mountain time. The solstice occurs at the moment when the sun makes his ingress into the sign of Cancer. This also is when the sun aligns with the Tropic of Cancer to reach his maximum northern longitude. It’s the tropical zodiac, after all. It aligns with the tropics and with the seasons. It’s officially the first day of summer. The day of longest daylight hours and the shortest night. Light is prevalent. Light reigns. Here is my blessing for all this day:
May your life be filled with light.
May light warm you and guide you.
May the light show you the way.
May the light lead you to love.
If you are lost in darkness perhaps it would be a good time for a deep look inside. The water sign of Cancer is one of depths, and with an abundance of light perhaps it is a good time to look within more deeply than before. We must be comfortable with ourselves to feel safe in this world, and if we aren’t comfortable now we must do the work to make it so. It is not always easy work but it is always worth it. Ultimately this search brings us closer to our true selves. And once we know our true selves we can truly lead authentic lives. We can shine our own light. We do shine.
