This Is How the Summer Solstice Is Going to Affect the Light in Your Heart

"The summer solstice is a celebration of the return to light, and it so powerfully reminds us of the light within each of us and the full potential of our individuated as well as united light or christ consciousness (our cosmic sense of unity). It is about awakening, or reaching enlightenment, as an omnipotent symbol of ascension and the ultimate triumph of light over darkness." –  Natalia Kuna 

The summer solstice is more than the official beginning of summer and the longest day of the year. Astrologically speaking, when the sun is close to the Earth, the energy of this cosmical event directly affects your being, the light in your heart, specifically, your emotions. 

The summer solstice occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, or 23.5° north latitude. So, in essence, between March and September, Earth’s Northern Hemisphere gets more exposure to direct sunlight over the course of a day. To top that off, the same day of the summer solstice, the season of Cancer begins, adding more substance to the astrological effects we’re going to experience. 

You might feel like an emotional hot mess. It’s not hormones, Cancer season kicks off on the same day as the summer’s solstice, so every sign is going to be affected by the highly emotional energy that Cancer brings. You’re basically going to be juggling with the yin and yan on your being. The sun brings out the masculine qualities in you and Cancer brings out the feminine qualities, so expect your mood to be all over the place as you try to balance out your emotions. You’re going to start feeling everything intensely, so expect a few extra tears here there and a bit more drama than usual in your relationships. Be kind to yourself and others, we’re all in some way or another going to be highly emotional these days. 

But your inner passion and drive are going to be at their peak. With the concoction of energies the sun and cancer offer this season, inspiration is going to take the front seat. All of a sudden you’re going to have the need to take action. You’re literally going to feel like you have what it takes to face fears, and you do. It doesn’t matter what it is you decide to do, it’s the perfect time to just go for it. Your inner strength is on your side and you’re going to have the motivation to get shit done. Do it. 

And you’re going to crave new beginnings. You’re going to be more connected to your core self than ever, so expect your natural frequency to want to take charge and want to make the necessary changes in your life, so you can reach the best version of yourself. You not only want to take action you want to see results and see the new pathways that will direct you to the things that your heart desires. You’re going to reach your inner superpowers and literally kick ass at life right now. 

Reflection is going to become your middle name. As you begin to feel like the need to make shifts in your life, you’re going to find yourself being more reflective about every aspect of your being. Meaning, you’re going to be exploring your yin and yan, so that you can find the harmony between the two that bests fits who you are. 

You’ll embrace love in every shape and form. You’re going to feel like giving your heart away every second of the day. Even if you’re not the lovey dovey type, you’re going to have the need to express your emotions openly. Whether is showing your love to family or friends, you’re going to want to be close to those you love, and you’ll also want to experience being love. 

It’s the perfect time to take life by the horns, so let your inner strength and intuition guide you. 

“Both the Winter and the Summer Solstices are expressions of love. They show us the opposition of light and dark, expansion and contraction, that characterize our experiences in the Earth school so that we can recognize our options as we move through our lives.” – Gary Zukav
