Summer Solstice Newsletter

Merry Midsummer my Friends,

June 21st is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Latitudes. Also known as Midsummer, this Solstice (meaning ‘Sun stands still’) is when the Sun is at its peak; the longest day of the year. It is also one of the eight great spokes on the Celtic wheel of seasons, and celebrated in some way in all cultures. Midsummer’s Eve is one of the three important spirit nights of the year; the other two are Beltane (May Day) and Samhain (Halloween). It is considered a spirit night because the veils are thinnest between the worlds for communication with the spirits.

Shakespeare’s comedy, The Tempest, was tapping into common beliefs in Elizabethan times that Midsummer is the time for contact with the world of Faerie.

SPRING SELF HELP EXERCISE

CELEBRATE THE GREEN FIRE!

As you take walks in gardens, parks, your neighborhood, wherever there are green growing plants, tune into their energy, especially now with the Green Fire so intense.

Learn about them and how we can be allies with each other, not just recipients of their love. With mutual respect, we can actively work to create communities that are based on cooperation, sustainability, diversity, and serving the light.

May you receive the love of the Green Fire– Offered by Wise Woman Dr. Linda Savage

Rejoice with Nature on May Day

May Day, or Beltane in Celtic traditions, is a time when nature has truly come alive. The whole period invites us to joyfully embrace the fertility of Mother Earth. There is growth and pollination everywhere, providing us with abundant harvests in the fall. The Maypole, symbolizing the phallic energy of the season, was festooned with ribbons; dancing around it celebrated the sacred power of sexuality and its essential role in the abundance of all life.

Our culture presents a view of sexuality that is almost entirely physical. The pleasures of the body are amazing, yet very little is said about the spiritual dimensions of sex. Sexuality is energy. It is our life force energy and it connects us to spirit. It allows us to have a deep connection to self, to a partner and to Source.

Joyous Spring Equinox

Joyous Spring Equinox my friends,

This year in the Northern Hemisphere, March 20th is the Spring Equinox when day and night will be equal in length at the equator. Also known as Ostara or Eostre (the origin of the name Easter), light and dark will be perfectly balanced, and this year it is on a full moon. In ancient traditions this Vernal Equinox is known as the time of Green Fire.

The concept of Green Fire has fascinated me for years. It refers to the sap rising in trees and to the electrical energy pulsing through the rapidly growing plants. This is not a metaphor. My electrician husband pointed out that green fire is literally electrical, same as our nervous system.

Celebrate the Return of the Light, My Friends

Imbolc is the time of hope for new life and the return of the light.
In the US, most people think of February 2nd as Groundhog Day, the portent of how many more weeks of winter are in store. However, for thousands of years, Imbolc, meaning “in the belly” was a sign of hope as there would be lambs born in the spring. In addition they saw the noticeable signs that the days were lengthening.

According to Christiane Northrup, many Americans suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), or the “winter blues,” and 4 out 5 people who suffer from SAD are women. This type of depression is even more common the farther north you live but I see it even in San Diego.

Winter Solstice 2018

This letter brings my heartfelt wishes for a truly joyous holiday season and an abundant New Year. In the Northern Hemisphere, December 21st is the time of the longest night (it is the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere). The Winter Solstice is universally honored with lights the world over. People have burned oil lamps, candles and bonfires, and now, electric light bulbs are strung around our homes. My mother used to tell me as a child that these traditions reassured us that days of longer sunlight would be returning.

Yet there is much to appreciate in the dark. Indigenous wisdom holds that darkness is simply the other side of light and there is great creative power in the void. The following lyrics capture this:
On the longest night, we search for the light
And we find it deep within
As we open our eyes, we embrace what it wise
And see the light of our souls shining
Enter the night and you’ll find the light
That will carry you to your dreams
Enter the night; let your spirit take flight
In the field of infinite possibilities

From Lisa Thiel, Circle of the Seasons CD

The current fascination with Shamanism in this time reflects a desire to delve into that mystery.

Accessing the Divine Feminine

In order to heal our planet, I feel we must reclaim the Divine Feminine variously called The Great Goddess, The Great Mother, Earth Mother, Mother of All.

During the Bronze Age, the High Priestess was the Earthly representative of the Great Mother. In the cultures that honored the divine feminine as well as the divine masculine, all paths were open to women as well as men and were honored equally: women were valued in all three stages of their lives: Maiden, Mother, and Crone and the roles of masculine and feminine was more balanced in the agrarian communities of Old Europe.

I believe that in acknowledging the divine feminine in our selves; men as well as women, we become far more life affirming.
