How To Utilize the Energies Present This Summer Solstice!



Happy Summer Solstice! 

In Chinese Medicine, Summer holds the energy and power of maturity. In nature, the buds of spring bloom into full flowers and are now able to share their pollen to make more flowers. 

For us, we have worked hard all year and it’s time to take a break and enjoy some vacation and the fruits of our labors. 

Recognizing how much you have grown and celebrating all you have accomplished is a way you can build your confidence in yourself and expand your own capacity to manifest more of what you want. 

The same way a good summer harvest can supply food for the winter months, recognizing and celebrating your achievements can give you the stores of confidence to give you the faith in yourself to carry you through all the ups and downs of success.

So, when I tapped in and tested what we may all need to benefit from this time, I was surprised:

The need to let go, love, and accept ourselves,

I had to look to see what my trusted astrology site,, was saying about this day and this week.

Apparently, there are several planets retrograde right now and a powerful Capricorn Full Moon this Thursday, which is likely bringing some…

wildcard energy, stirring things until we are unable to see clearly ahead. It does not do this to annoy, but rather to get us to slow down and see things from a different vantage point.

Capricorn energy supports us in creating a life with a strong and solid foundation. Capricorn energy naturally nurtures things that are designed to stand the test of time, so we may find ourselves naturally drawn to focus on these aspects of our lives.

Pholus, an asteroid similar to Chiron and relating to omens, divine truth, and cause and effect, is also very active at the time of this Full Moon.

In astrology, whenever Pholus’ energy is strong, it indicates a turning point or a simple action that leads to the opening of a new path.”

Sometimes with Pholus’ energy, it is easy to feel regret or remorse. Under the rays of this Full Moon, we may find ourselves wishing we had done things differently or perhaps taken a different approach.”

So how can we use the energy of Summer and this powerful full moon simultaneously?

The exercise below, helps you physically let go of any attachment you have to the “should of’s” and “could of’s” and see yourself as a growth seeker, someone who is embracing life’s journey and trusting the process.

As I always say, Upsets ARE Access to new opportunities for growth, if we can see them that way.

It takes a certain amount of discord to fuel change. If everything was perfect, there would be no reason to grow! 

I have also created an Upset To Access Growth Worksheet for you that helps you use whatever feelings of dissatisfaction you may have to fuel your next growth actions and let this moment be the powerful “turning point that leads to the opening of a new path.” It also helps you get present to all you have accomplished to help you use the energy of Summer to help fuel your confidence and trust in yourself!

I suggest filling it out before the Full Moon Thursday and using it for the ritual I will be sending 😉 

Please share this with anyone you think could use this message. 

So much love and abundance!
