Summer Solstice Brings More Light...and Change
Spread for the Collective 6.21.22
A big thank you and welcome to new readers who came to me and this newsletter via the Spiritual Fusions Psychic & Holistic Expo. It’s my pleasure and honor to meet you and have you join me here.
Today is Solstice Day…Marking Summer and the longest day of light in Northern Hemisphere, and Winter and shortest day of light in the Southern Hemisphere.
To compound and intensify this natural energy flow of change, a rare planetary alignment will be visible starting in three days on June 24 and will continue to be visible until the end of the month (under optimum conditions of clear skies, away from city lights).
FYI: The moon will be in the constellation of Taurus between Mars and Venus on June 24, making it the most beautiful day to look at the sky.
The energy of these combined celestial/cosmic events will stay with us and affect our lives for the next three months! And to borrow Bette Davis’ famous line, “Buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy night.” Or, for my younger readers…From Harry Potter, “Buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.” You get the idea.
What’s causing the shake up? Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is a key figure in this Cancer Solstice, especially in the areas of home, finances, security, and safety. Major changes are afoot and those who are unprepared could suffer from chaotic circumstances.
But not for you if you follow the “Buckle up and get ready” advice. This could be a time of divine change for those who make conscious effort to align themselves (like the planets) with new circumstances and let go of resistance to change.
Supporting you is time. This energy will prevail for three months, so no need to panic! In fact, today’s Spread for the Collective indicates you’re already on the case and headed in the right direction.
Reading left to right as as past, present, and future influences:
Balsamic Moon / A time for healing: This card indicates the past is past and a bright future is beckoning, but also cautions that healing is necessary to move forward. The caveat is that the unfolding process takes time, so allow yourself the luxury of allowing quiet time to soothe and heal. A burst of creative energy is sure to follow when the time is right.
Full Moon in Virgo / You are good enough. The intense energy of the Solstice and Planetary Alignment can trick you into feeling pressured and tempted to hold onto comfortable routines. But don’t be fooled: You are good enough, and you deserve the opportunity to advance toward your dreams.
New Moon in Capricorn / Your hard work is paying off. If you follow the guidance of the cards and take time, invest in yourself, and trust your inner wisdom, you will see the gains in the near future.
You can consider this cosmic event a “training” or “sample” of huge energy shifts emerging in coming months and throughout the next two to three years. The shifting energies of this planet will continue to grow in strength and intensity. It’s an opportunity to make those changes, grow into the person you came here to be, and thrive in a world that supports you.
If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, enjoy these days with extended hours of light. From this day on, the days grow shorter and the dark hours of night grow longer. This will likely be a summer to remember, so enjoy and savor the days.
Until next time… my best, Shelley
