Solstice: Have Forks Will Travel

5 Jun, 2022
As our days or nights reach their pinnacle of the longest day of light or dark, we seek balance with the Earth. The longest day in the North, embraces all the light within us. This light illuminates all the places we still carry darkness, a potent reminder to seek healing and light. As dark slowly returns, bless it, it is ready to be seen and guided to the light, for illumination.

Happy Summer Solstice Northern Hemisphere!
Happy Winter Solstice to all of you in the Southern Hemisphere!

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere when night is at its longest time and day is shortest, as the light returns embrace the light within. What are you illuminated to share more of with the World? Many of us are more afraid of our light than our darkness. Use Earth’s energy to drink your light in slowly, day by day, sip in your light with ease. Every day recalibrate to more of your own unique magical light.

Whether you are in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, flow with the Earth, take a moment each day to feel darkness or light depending on the cycle of the season. Use REN and DU to connect your body to Earth’s cycle of light and dark. These meridians represent the first cell division of our Earth body. The Yin and Yang movement of the microcosmic orbit connects us to the Macrocosmic orbit of the Earth and Universe.

Use your forks to connect with the energies of the Solstice more deeply. Tuning fork recommendations are a starting point, reflect on what you are drawn to and wish to create in your life.

Northern Hemisphere: New Moon 5th or Mid Pluto and Sun
Southern Hemisphere: Solar 7th or Mid Jupiter and Sun

Be gentle, remember Earth increases the amount of day/night by only a couple of minutes each day. Trust what you are intuitively guided to do.
