Summer Solstice – Cancer Decan I


ART – MADONNA AND CHILD – ACRYLIC ON PRESSBOARD
The Summer Solstice came blazing in on June 20, 2017. Here in Denver it was hot as hades…which may be a cooler place to escape the heat! As the Summer season begins we are reminded us to blend the heat of the Sun with the coolness of Water. Staying hydrated is self-care which feeds our bodies and is essential with these high temperatures. It’s now warm enough to go swimming outdoors, splashing in a creek or relaxing near a body of water. As you spend more time outdoors, consider the elements of Fire and Water, your emotions and passions. What stirs your soul and moves you to take action?

The Ace of Water is the tarot card of the Summer Solstice. It features a chalice which symbolizes the womb and the waters of creation. All things are possible now! Carpe diem! Seize the day and begin to create a joy-filled life. The potential of new loves, better relationships, pregnancy, as well as starting new projects is upon us. What better time to organize block parties and meet your neighbors?

The tarot card for this first decan, or 10 day period, of Cancer is the 2 of Water which features the Madonna; a Cancerian moon mother, who nurtures us with unconditional love shining down as reflected light. There is no reason to fear the dark when the moon lights the night!

Summer nights invite us to stay outside late into the evening to visit more freely with our Moon mother. As the heat dissipates it allows the plants to exhale oxygen into the atmosphere. Be still and listen to this still small sound of Gaia breathing, continuing to perpetuate all animal life. The clean Air and fertile Earth are bursting with life giving energy at this time.

#Meditate on what you really need, not just want. Then make a plan to accomplish it. Discover your joy by treating yourself to some private time in the dark of the New Moon, June 22nd and remember who you were before you had a face. Namaste’
