We are finishing a light cycle this Friday on the solstice. Here where I write in the northern hemisphere, the light will shine longest on the upcoming summer solstice. In the southern half of the world, light will reach its shortest expression.
And then the cycles reverse again.
As I wrote earlier this year in January, we all get the opportunity to experience two different kinds of light cycles. One where our days of sunlight are lengthening and one where the daylight is diminishing.
June like December is often a month centered around the celebration of light. The solstices in these months are pivot points in our yearly dance of light and darkness.
This is a natural time to celebrate whatever accomplishments that have come your way either through your own effort or grace or both. Take some time this week, especially on the solstice to see the cycles of life around you, affecting your life.
Look at what is increasing and decreasing.
As we learn to see and feel how we fit into the rhythms of life, transformation can become a source of awe and delight.
How can you celebrate this last six month cycle of light and life?
