Today is a pretty magical day, especially for me. It is the summer solstice and the full moon (the last time this happened was in 1948 so it is a once in a lifetime opportunity). Plus I'm a Cancer and the next four weeks are all about those Cancers.
I've been trying to pay more attention to the sun, the moon and the stars and how I relate to this universe. I listened to a great episode of the Being Boss podcast the other day with Ezzie Spencer and I loved what she said about paying attention to the lunar cycles to give you time to check in with yourself.
I feel like it is all a part of my form of spirituality. I don't necessarily believe in God, but I do believe in a higher power. I also firmly believe in asking the Universe for what I need but then laying the groundwork to make it happen. I firmly believe in karma. I definitely am a Cancer whose most dominant traits are sensitivity, empathy, home body, sometimes needs to be left alone (retreats into their shell), or sometimes lashes out and I'm a water lover (which is soooo true). I find that understanding these are my traits means I accept them. It's ok to stay home or invite people over for dinner. I used to fight against my nature, but now I've learned to go with my flow.
So tonight I'm going to go home and get some chores done, but then I'm going to light some candles and set new intentions for the next month.
What are you going to do to celebrate the summer solstice and full moon?
