Summer Solstice Blessings


It is the Solstice this Friday the 22nd. Down here in Oz we have the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year and for my Northern Hemisphere friends it is the Winter Solstice, the longest night. How lovely to ponder both energies as our beloved Earth is held between the polarities and thrives with magik and possibility.

To celebrate the Solstice this year I plan to begin with a fire ceremony, a shamanic practise i learnt a few years ago with the ever lovely Sa and Claudio of Sacred Radiance. The fire ceremony purifies and aids release and acceptance of anything heavy from the year that may be weighing me down.

I’m going to practise this ritual the eve before the Solstice on the Thursday night to create space within, an opening up to the radiance of the Solstice the following day.

On Solstice day I will brew Solar Tea.
