How to Celebrate the Summer Solstice

by Psychic Readings by Ronn on 06/03/20


As the weather in the northern hemisphere begins to warm up, we are gradually approaching the official start of summer: the summer solstice. This year, it falls on Saturday, June 20. During the solstice, the northern hemisphere experiences the longest day of the year. Just as the winter solstice presents a time ideal for self-reflection, the summer solstice provides an opportunity for celebration and self-recognition.


Global Celebrations

Around the world and throughout history, many cultures have and continue to celebrate the solstice in different ways. Ancient Egyptians recognized the solstice as the start of a new year because, shortly after its arrival, the Nile would flood, resulting in more fertile ground for agriculture. In ancient Greece, similar attitudes were held during the festival of Kronia which celebrated the god of agriculture as they prayed for prosperity and abundance.

In Europe, people still gather at Stonehenge at dawn to celebrate the arrival of the solstice. Another ongoing tradition involves the lighting of bonfires to honor the sun. Native Americans, namely the Sioux, continue to celebrate the solstice with traditional dances and other rituals.


How to Celebrate

You don’t need to travel across the world or make significant plans to celebrate the summer solstice, but you can take inspiration from other cultures. Waking up at or before dawn may help you get in the spirit, welcoming in the day at its very start. If the weather is nice, spend time in the sun as the day progresses; after all, the solstice is the mark that winter has finally receded, and it is a time of life and joy.

You may choose to draw on ancient traditions and start a garden on the solstice, strengthening your connection to the sun and the earth at once. Sitting around a fire with family or friends, when possible, is also a great way to embrace the warmth of the season, the celebratory spirit, and the things that bring you joy.


At the heart of summer solstice celebrations is hope and love; for many, summer presents a time of relaxation, rest, and simple pleasure, and the solstice is the perfect time to acknowledge what it is you love and cherish about your life. However you choose to celebrate the solstice, embrace what is important to you and what you love about yourself in honor of the arrival of summer.

We are undeniably living in stressful and uncertain times. Even without these strange circumstances, the stress of daily life can be overwhelming. There are many ways you can try to alleviate your stress and anxiety, and for those looking for a spiritual connection or a daily practice to help, meditating with gemstones could be your answer.


Meditation

For some people, meditation isn’t intuitive. With practice, however, it can not only be a simple ritual, it can also benefit the individual on a physical and emotional level. There are two fundamental elements of meditation that can help alleviate anxiety. The first deals with the physical side of things and how you breathe. Meditation encourages individuals to level their breathing, inhale fully, and release tension from the body. In this way, meditation can help individuals recover from the physical manifestation of anxiety in the form of tense muscles, rapid heart rate, and more.

Meditation also encourages individuals to live in the moment. Those experiencing anxiety may find themselves dwelling on the past or worrying about the future; through meditation, they may find it easier to simply acknowledge the present and work through their stress.

Meditating with gemstones can also help guide your practice and promote further healing.


Amethyst

A popular gemstone, amethyst promotes balance and positivity. In some ways, it can be universally healing. Amethyst helps individuals balance their emotions and focus on the positives.


Rose Quartz

This stone is often associated with love. When dealing with anxiety, self-love is important, and while it can be difficult to take care of yourself, rose quartz can help remind and guide you toward a positive approach to daily life. Like amethyst, rose quartz can also be helpful for achieving balance. 


Shungite

Regarded as a protective stone, shungite has been used in various cultures for many years. While dispelling negativity, shungite also attracts feelings of serenity. Those who are dealing with anxious feelings may also feel listless or drained; shungite can help boost an individual’s energy and keep them calm at the same time.


Rhodonite

Another balancing stone, rhodonite is useful for dismissing anxiety and promoting a sense of stability. Meditating with rhodonite may help individuals feel more at peace and in control of their emotions.

Two Full Moons Ahead and What They Mean

As we have discussed a few times already, the full moon that occurs each month can share some valuable insights into how you might conduct yourself or what you might focus on. Its energy shifts throughout the month along with its phases, and the full moon in particular can serve as a guiding force for your life as it transitions through the year.


Here, we’ll look ahead toward the heart of spring and the start of summer for hope and inspiration. 


May: The Flower Moon

By the time the May full moon comes around, the spring season is well underway. It is in May that the temperature has generally increased and the lingering frosts are diminishing. The Flower Moon, then, is representative of an ideal time to plant crops or flowers, making it a symbol of fertility and opportunity.

In your own life, the Flower Moon can present an ideal time to plan for the future. Think about what you want to accomplish, how you can reach your goals, and what obstacles you may encounter. Like with planting flowers, planning for your future may not be straightforward, so taking this time to consider your path and determine the best course of action for your life is wise. 

Another potential interpretation of the Flower Moon entails accepting proposals or opportunities. Because this full moon represents a period of growth, prosperity, and potential, you may do well to embrace exciting propositions that come your way.


June: The Strawberry Moon

The name of the June full moon is one of the only ones that was universal across the Algonquin Native American tribes. Strictly speaking, the name refers to the strawberry picking season, and around the time of the June full moon, the season will be in its peak.

Even for those who don’t undertake the task of picking strawberries, this full moon can hold great significance. It is around this time that you should consider what you have been working towards, the success you’ve had, and whether it’s time to reap the rewards of your progress. You may find, of course, that your work is not finished; even so, the Strawberry Moon offers an opportunity to reflect and grow. If you still have room to improve or areas of growth to focus on, you can still acknowledge your progress to this point and proceed from there, a process that is reflective of the strawberry harvest.

The Strawberry Moon also presents a time of honesty and forthrightness. Allowing fear, doubt, and lies to rule your life will only result in negativity, so this full moon offers a chance for you to change your ways and proceed on a better path.

Partway through the month of February, we shift from the season of Aquarius into the emotional, intuitive season of Pisces. As we enter this time of year, you may feel a bit unsteady or unstable, especially with your emotions. With spring still some ways away, the arrival of Pisces season reminds us that we still have some time to go before the season of rebirth and renewal, so it provides a great opportunity for reflection and reorientation.


Below are a few crystals that may help you thrive this Pisces season.


Amethyst

As a generally positive stone, amethyst is a great addition to any collection. Pisces season presents a time of emotional openness, but being too open can lead to pain, betrayal, and exhaustion. Amethyst provides a protective layer between you and emotional hardship that can help keep you stable and calm throughout this season.


Aquamarine

Aquamarine is regarded as a classic choice for Pisces, and its energy certainly suits the star sign. With energy that is both serene and compassionate, aquamarine promotes clarity, spirituality, and healing. For those who feel particularly troubled or unsteady, aquamarine can alleviate tension and serve as a gentle guide through the season.


Lepidolite

When the emotional period of Pisces season becomes too much, lepidolite can help with the task of reducing your stress. Its energy is both relaxing and refreshing, and this crystal can help promote positivity and light in your life. Because Pisces season may be challenging for some individuals, a lepidolite crystal may help individuals cope with change, transformation, and acceptance as the season progresses.


Bloodstone

In times of emotional upheaval, bloodstone can help keep you grounded. Its energy is one of stability, confidence, and balance. Meditating with bloodstone or keeping it on your person during the Pisces season may help you keep even the most volatile moods in check.


Jade

Towards the end of the Pisces season, some individuals may find that the emotionally-rich period between February and March has worn them out. Jade, then, can help restore and rejuvenate individuals who are exhausted or drained. Like the others described above, jade is also a stabilizing stone that can help keep you grounded as the season draws to a close.

The start of a new year in any region or culture is an excellent time to reflect on your life and make changes. When it comes to setting a resolution or goal, integrating the presence of certain crystals can help keep you grounded and remind you of your aspirations even when it becomes difficult to stick to your plan.

Depending on the nature of your goal for this year, you may benefit from selecting a crystal that suits your specific ideals. Otherwise, choosing some from the list below can help keep you focused and energized.

Rainbow Moonstone

This stone is typically associated with new beginnings, making it an ideal stone to embrace in the new year. As with all moonstones, this crystal shares some connections with the lunar cycle, making it a great choice for individuals looking to better tolerate change as well as repetition. New beginnings can be challenging, and a piece of rainbow moonstone can help restore your energy and supply you with the intrinsic motivation you need to succeed this year.


Agate

For those who feel they need a bit of a push in the right direction, agate is a great stone that fosters courage and strength. Individuals who have set a resolution or are experiencing some other kind of significant change may find that agate is good for achieving balance and emotional stability.


Amethyst

As an all-around positive stone, amethyst is especially useful when it comes to breaking bad habits and replacing them with healthier, more productive ones. Amethyst can also help in providing clear motivation toward setting and achieving realistic goals. Additionally, amethyst is commonly associated with serenity, so for those who feel they could benefit from peace and quiet may find that amethyst is the perfect choice.


Angelite

Failing to meet goals or reach benchmarks can be frustrating, but giving up is rarely the right choice. For individuals who are easily frustrated or discouraged, angelite can promote forgiveness and recovery as well as the release of tension. Angelite may help those who find it difficult to overcome obstacles or lack sufficient external support as they proceed into the new year.
