June Blessing

Solstice Majesty

There is a vitality, a life force to June

As it cradles the longest day

The sun’s closest day,

The day of Solstice Majesty.

Her blessings of light, her opening notes

Thrum within cicada and tree frog.

Bodies become buttery, softening last sharp edges of a cold spring.

Yet-We are here!  Once again, splendid and redolent!

Divine dissatisfactions of yesterday

Disappear as we prepare the mystery of the great turning,

Stand still to being alive!

Gather the tribe. Light fires. The earth speaks.

Solsistere-Stand still and listen!

Astrology and Yoga of Transformation

CREATING A NEW REALITY   June 16-23

 

THEMES                                                                                                   

The Full Moon on the 17th as zeitgeist of this year; ie as having the spirit, moral or characteristic climate of place, time or situation.

This is a time of major shifts in consciousness. The most important place to be is quietly centered in your heart, as master/mistress and commander of your life.

Slow the Do in order to welcome the BE:

Be aware of following Astrological energies to integrate, accelerate, create:   *Full Moon at Galactic Center of Milky Way.      *Neptune square Jupiter, exact as Neptune stations Retrograde under Full Moon beams.     *Mercury, ruling the Gemini Sun, aligns with Mars and North Node in Cancer opposing Saturn, Pluto with South Node in Capricorn. Opositional power of feminine/masculine, yin/yang, mother/father.                 *This is the last Full Moon before July Eclipse Season, and as such- offers opportunistic portholes, and potholes for magnifying clarity, fruitfulness, and right use of will, often through showing us the shadow side of action.

 

THE STORY 

                                                                                                                  On June 3rd, we were given our marching orders under the Gemini New Moon; a birth cycle requesting we adapt and develop intelligence in order to focus attention toward understanding how and why we experience life the way we do. The Jupiter/Neptune square was dominant then, poking us to partner with Jupiter’s expansive intellectual perspectives and desires for higher knowledge, at odds with Neptune’s spirit dimensions of loss and metaphysical, sixth sense understanding. It often displays as a right brain/left brain contra dance. (see dailybreathjournal.com/astrology) If you have been working with the many opportunities to weave spirit into daily existence, to make greater sense of the nonsense, then this Full Moon offers an ahaaa release of wider vision and expanded understanding. This is truly a Full Moon of culmination, especially for New Moon seeds that have been seeking answers, especially those that have been confused by protocol, and and information during this cycle.

With so much energy electrifying our electromagnetic fields, be with nature, listen to her dictates of rooting down in order to integrate the multifaceted energies assaulting the body. Much of or transformation is about healing the split between head and heart, masculine and feminine. Pay attention to your dreams, and spend time getting very clear about the fruit you hope to produce. . This time is not only healing head and heart, but understanding the wounds that created the split. It is an evolutionary time forcing, and supporting us to integrate, spirit and matter, past and present. Due to the many ‘cosmic energies,’ particularly the Full Moon at the Galactic Center, a supper black hole emitting an enormous electromagnetic force, we are supported to make big internal shifts, to think outside the old box, and go wide-eyed, or wild-eyed into a new consciousness.

All this shifting, and learning does not come without a price tag. Minds are over-taxed. Bodies are tired. Confusion and anxiety are hallmarks of change. We cannot get there from here without nurturing ourselves. Pull off the grid to sit in silence in order to open the Third Eye, your Ajna Chakra. Visualize a dark blue purple color infusing the point between eyebrows, chant silently, or aloud “Aum” over and over until it feels like a waterfall of healing sound. The element is light, therefore surround yourself in an egg of light. If you wish to go full throttle: use the Gyan mudra at the Third Eye. (for mudra, curl right ring finger into palm, bring tips of thumb, middle and index fingers together and place them on the Third Eye. Left hand remains in lap.) I’ll meet you out beyond, in the mystery of Solstice Magic, perhaps on the lawn with the sound of Summertime pulling us toward joy. https://youtu.be/xev_zl9Yk1M

YOUR PRACTICE THIS WEEK:  Practice outside if possible. Nature infuses the body with alchemical green healing and peace. If nothing else, stand on the grass, in a park –in Tree Pose, counting your abundant blessings, feeling roots drive deeply down into the earth. Be at peace with beautiful YOU.Come dance shaktidances Summertime …be part of our lawn patrol.

YOUR BIRTHDAY WEEK: “Ooolala- Hope you are hoping for ecastic relationships and magnificent partnering, with a fillip of spiritual mystery. It’s a year for it. And it’s a year for you to explore the mystery in and of your life. You may be offered different roads and ideas to follow, but it’s more important than ever that you follow the intuition of your heart.  Head is great, but don’t let it lead you toward ego and waffles for breakfast.  By lunch, you may be sorry.  Be aware of your interdisciplinary talents, and seek ways and means of collaborating them, and joining with others of similar talents.  Create some new habits that give you moments of joining heart and head, integrating masculine and feminine.  One tiny step of change will take you a long way up!
