This past week we dealt with the Retrograde of Mercury, holy moly this was a scorcher of one to deal with. I learned some pretty tough lessons about myself, friendships and my relationship. The retrograde makes us look inward and work on ourselves. So this retrograde was perfectly in line with the solstice. Allowing me to go through what I need to and release it out into the universe. Starting a fresh new season.
The Summer Solstice is a celebration of the sun, life, and happiness. After a week of looking inward we release the negative energy and attract positive energy to come into our lives. Some of the main focuses can include: personal power, joy, courage, marriage, fertillity, strength, self- confidence, career and enjoying the present. This is also a good time to focus on worldly events and bring positive light on them.
Good things to remember:
- Reflect on things you would like to change within yourself (ex. Judgement, selfishness, love more, spend time with...etc.)
- Write on a piece of paper: on one side- things you would like to attract into your life, on the other- things you would like to release from your life. In a safe place (preferably outside) read them aloud and burn the paper. Release your wishes to the Universe, God, Goddess or whomever you believe is your higher power.
- Meditate on what you are grateful for in your life
Celebrate and enjoy life!
