IT IS SUMMER SOLSTICE FOR SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE:
For those in the southern hemisphere, you are burgeoning in the light, while the planets of light with the full moon are asking you to expand what you consider to be community. Who do you consider to be family? Spread your arms and open your hearts to allow even more diversity, and lessening of judgment into your life.
Summer solstice in the southern hemisphere brings the longest days, and the shortest nights and connects you with light, warm sunshine and can be easy to get over expanded.
Health Tip: Take care to make sure you rest at least ten minutes a day to harness the healing energy of this time of year – the light and energy will sometimes be so expansive, that you might tend to not rest because you feel so good.
In Taoist, qi gong practices, the most Yang time of year is summer solstice, and a dollup of rest is important to balance the expansive energy of the long days of light for health and vitality ALL year long.
