Also today, June 20, is the Solstice — meaning it's the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This year there will also be a full moon. The two haven't conincided for 70 years.
Here is the schedule of celestial events:
- 5:11 a.m. - Sunrise
- 5:38 a.m. - Moonset
- 7:34 p.m. - Sun at northernmost point from Earth
- 9:01 p.m. - Moonrise
- 9:06 p.m. - Sunset
It's a powerful time to reflect, set intention and make offerings. I encourage you to do so on your own time today. I witnessed the sunrise this morning at Dune Du Sud, and did some solitary preparations for tomorrow, plus an offering to the water.
I trust the vision and guidance of Astrologist Chani Nicholas. When speaking about this day, she says:
These moments cast a light. They reveal shadows. They reveal edges. They reveal the flaws in our foundations. They reveal what heartbreak can make. This light can be used to rebuild by. This light can be used to wake and shake and not forsake the work we have yet to do. This light can be used to illuminate any matter of aspects that this moment has woken us up to.
What will we wake up to?
Both the inner experience and the outer quest. Both the deeply personal meaning of the moment and also the collective one. Ask the big questions. Feel the big feelings. Listen for the quieter responses. Tend to the tiny tugs at your heart.
There is so much we can offer this moment. Mainly our humanity. Our willingness to know how our little lives intersect with our bigger roles. To know how our personal identities play out in the larger world. To connect to each other, in solidarity, so that we feel the power of collective resistance and resilience. To open to the global impact, while keeping an eye on our home front.
