Happy Summer Solstice!

May you have a blessed and beautiful Summer Solstice today! 

As the rising Solstice sun enters the watery, nurturing sign of Cancer and the moon has just begun it's journey through the deep, mysterious energies of Scorpio, this sacred day of the Summer Solstice is an excellent time to take a few moments to meditate upon the direction that your next six months will take. What will you do between now and the Winter Solstice? Where do you want to be six months from now? What would you change about your life to make it better, more meaningful or happier?

As empowered individuals, we have the ability to make our lives better every day. Take a few minutes to sit out in the sun today and ask yourself these questions. Be honest about the answers, and perhaps even commit yourself to take a step in a new direction today that could bring about big changes down the road.

You could also consider joining with other like-minded individuals in your community at this evening's  SunStave Summer Solstice gathering in Liberty Park. However you  spend the Solstice, remember that it is a day of renewal, hope and powerful energy! Blessed Be!
