Celtic Wheel of the Year: With Litha / Summer Solstice

We are celebrating the longest days of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (as the Sun has reached the Tropic of Cancer) – one of the four sacred turning points of the year (Summer and Winter Solstice, and Spring and Fall Equinox). Solstice means ‘Standstill of the Sun’.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Apparently, from the perspective of the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun has reached its maximum range of the Ecliptic, and is now overhead the Tropic of Cancer, ‘producing’ the longest day time hours, before ‘receding’.

And if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, the ‘arch’ of the Sun is the smallest and lowest now, reaching Winter Solstice. (Your Summer Solstice is when, through the Earth tilt, the Sun is overhead the Tropic of Capricorn – longest days for you guys and gals).

Happy Winter Solstice, dear reader in the Southern Hemisphere, esp. Australia and South Africa!

Back to our ‘Northern turf’:

As you can see in http://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/canada/victoria, we are actually 2 weeks in Solstice mode: 16 hrs and 04 – 06 min of day time in Victoria BC, culminating on June 20 / 21, with 16 hrs and 06 min. and 40 sec., the absolute maximum of the year. June 21 will be 7 hours and 48 minutes longer than the Winter Solstice (Dec 21)! And next week, the day time will recede very slowwwly.

* SACRED INWARD MOTION

SOULstice Standstill vibes abound – not ‘just’ through the SUN.

Mercury, Chiron, Uranus, and Neptune are ALL in stationary mode, and Saturn retro on the ‘Phoenix Point’ just dropped back into Scorpio, on the ‘Phoenix Point’!

In other words, these planets are in the process of changing direction from direct (forward from Earth perspective) to retro (Chiron, Uranus, and Neptune), or from retro to direct (Mercury), and prompt us to turn soulward, and ‘thread ourselves’ with these archetypal human experiences through the ‘eye of the karmic needle’, while Saturn calls us to go into the depth, once again, and the transpersonal, collective energies of Uranus and Pluto are transforming, evolving, and liberating us, through the ‘birth canal of consciousness’.

All these stationary / retro planets end of June are focal points, and their archetypal energy naturally spirals inward / backward – soulward.

We are called go backwards / inwards, for REsolve and RElease, esp. when it comes to low and unconscious vibrations of…

MERCURY in GEM: Mind running the show.

CHIRON in PI: Old shame, vulnerability, and wounds that turn into our ‘shamanic scars’.

URANUS in AR: Old RE-actionary, hectic, survival stress.

NEPTUNE in PI: Old overwhelm, confusion, delusions, deceptions, addictions, ways of ‘checking out’ and giving up.

And SATURN: Old REpetitive patterns, karma, obstacles, limitations, blocks, pain, ‘excess luggage’

…and find inside the more conscious vibrations of:

Mercury (now from retro back in direct, since June 11): Mind as an expression of Consciousness.

Chiron (will go retro on June 24): The ‘wound’ carries the Medicine.

Uranus (will go retro on July 26): Liberation into the vibrant NOW.

Neptune (went retro on June 12): Unity Consciousness, in the Unified Field.

* Mercury in GEM will square stationary Neptune on June 23 – Let Mind drop into the ocean of Oneness.
