☼ LITHA MIDSUMMER SOLSTICE ☼ The word “solstice” is from the Latin word solstitium, which literally translates to “sun stands still.” It is the longest day of the year + an ancient pagan time of celebration to meditate, drawing in love magick + spending time in water + by a fire with loved ones especially children. A time to share tales over a homemade feast + honor this most potent time of the year for prosperous bounty + agriculture. Traditional rituals consist of weaving + creating handmade crafts in tune with nature + music. I love my name but if I were to ever change it, it would be to Summer. Happy Summer Solstice, may you have a fruitful, celebratory few months ahead surrounded by great love + joy.
☽ ◯ ☾Full Moon in Capricorn :: GRATITUDE :: A time to reflect on where you stand in the world, your arrivals + departures, your accolades + losses, your proximity to your hopes + dreams. Meditate on gratitude, go on a rampage of appreciation + have no fear of failure, you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. ☽ ◯ ☾
☽◯☾ NEW MOON IN GEMINI :: OWN IT :: This New Moon in Gemini asks you to speak your truth. I’ve come up against this hard in the past couple of years with those that proselytize the truth, using this word without authentically living it. Suffice to say I let those go as those that live the veil of consciousness have never resonated with me. I am not interested in the mask, the shallow, those that appear to be something in essence they’re not.
There’s a reason I have truth in Sanskrit tattooed on me as it is a path not for the weak of heart. It takes great courage to sincerely speak + live your truth and can leave you quite unpopular with others even triggering anger + shit talking in those you’ve unmasked. I’m fine with this. Being liked is not something I’ve ever striven for, being respected + trusted and equally respecting + trusting is where my ambition lives.
Gemini, the twins of zodiac are a symbol of the polarity within us–the energy we give off and the energy we innately are. This New Moon marry them. Delve + ask yourself where your discrepancies are, perhaps reflect on a disconnect within yourself from what you speak + the truthful desire or fear that is inconsistent with those words or actions.
At 39 years old, I can honestly say mine are married + I’m ever growing. I live + love by my word. My moral compass is compassionate + unapologetic. There is no mask, no hidden agenda, what you see is what you get + my powerful peace comes from my inner truth of bold love that is immune to praise + criticism alike. When you live + love in truth, it is ecstatic freedom. Get free. ☽◯☾
