Full Moon in Sagittarius Summer Solstice ☾ Always a new horizon
Full Moon in Sagittarius (again!)/Summer Solstice 06/20/16
We may find ourselves coming into new insight at this time, as energies culminate and manifest. We have our second full moon in Sagittarius in a row (happens about every 3 years), and thus may be revisiting past patterns and emotions from a new perspective. *If you find your natural bio rhythms are waking you in the middle of the night or early in the morning, make a point of taking note of your dreams. Many messages are revealed here and are worth paying attention to.
What we have called up is surfacing and this can be either quite uncomfortable as the old patterns break apart or quite comfortable as we find ourselves in a new adventure of uncharted territory. Let us embrace changes and continue to seek resolution without obsession. Be mindful of needing to know. All will be revealed in perfect timing for our highest self to integrate. Do not try and rush. It will only backfire.
This is a time of genuine heart expansion. Nature may feel more seductive. The universe may seem full of strange but kind magic and blessings, even amongst the darkest of days. Loss, grief and victimhood may feel either more painful and tangible at this time, or more watery and elusive, as we continue through this journey of radical transformation. Practicing gratitude, compassion and receiving love through an open heart chakra will serve everyone well. This is the time to receive our ask and be grateful for the ways in which spirit teaches us lessons. Let us surrender to what is happening and find joy, relief and satisfaction in the culmination of whatever cycle we are releasing. Growth IS abundance. If it's been painful, it's working!
This does NOT excuse violent behavior towards self or others, nor does it make anything easy and nor should we feel bad for feeling bad. Guilt and shame creates more guilt and shame. So let us continue instead to move through this time in patience and to honor our hearts if they are heavy. We must sit with and process each emotional thunderstorm yet be able to realize when the storm has passed and we are thus free to move forward. Loving ourselves and one another as we are is the greatest gift we can give to a grieving world. Yet we must also remind each other that it is okay to move on when we are ready and to receive new love. There is always a new horizon underway.
The summer solstice is calling us to celebrate our lives together, embrace the community we have and have built and to honor nature and her cycles. Be mindful of staying balanced between nursing inner wounds and healing in solitude and allowing the love of others to flow through. This is a time to spread and share joy, fun, laughter and tears, picnics, bbq's or simple walks in nature. Practice a staycation mindset in your day to day and allow yourself to uplift others and them to uplift you. I've said it before and I'll say it again: we are all in this together!
