Summer Solstice 2022

Summer Solstice 2022 Greetings!


The Summer Solstice arrives on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, and marks the longest day of the year. The Solstice Sun provides a favorable opportunity to use affirmations, prayer, and meditation to focus your energies on the positive outcomes you would like to create. You may make much spiritual, mental, emotional, and material progress at this time. Your prayers are powerful, so remember to pray for the highest good for yourself and for our world!

Despite appearances in the outer world, there still are many opportunities to experience happiness at this time. After all, your soul is the essence of joy. And if outer opportunities in the world elude you, this will push you to inner activities that naturally connect you to your soul - a source of infinite joy.

The growing light of the summer sun may also intensify your ability to see what has been hidden in the shadows - both for good or ill. This is a time for self-discovery and for finding what is in need of healing. The results will be worth the efforts you are engaging in to self-transform. 

Just as intense heat and pressure turn coal into a diamond, you also may be feeling under intense pressure to change. But the possibility of becoming a diamond that reflects the light holds great potential for a brighter future for us all. 


We are in a time when it may often be easier to let go of what has not been working in the past than it is to hold onto what might work in the future. This is a necessary part of the process of the restructuring of our reality that is planetarily destined to occur at this start of a new millennium. All that we are experiencing  is part of clearing the way for a more evolved, advanced new future. Your only job is to remain calm, peaceful, and patient, and wait for the new to reveal itself. 

On a mundane level, you will see financial markets continue to spiral downward throughout the summer season, with somewhat of a recovery in the fall, another dip later in the year, with a more promising recovery in the spring of 2023, followed by a long plateau after that. Until then, there will be many ups and downs in financial, real estate, and other business and commercial markets. Governmental policies across the globe will continue to be erratic. 

As with everything, we are growing through the changes. It is important to stay centered in your own spiritual practices and in yourself as we watch the structure of reality changing. Try to stay present and grounded despite the volatility, and of course, practice authenticity at all times for greatest spiritual and personal growth. 

Like a snake shedding its skin, you may feel a bit tender in your new skin as the earth evolves to a higher level of consciousness. But throughout the process, you will continually learn to harmonize with the new environment we are entering.

Key Dates * Days of Change 
These dates present opportunities to meditate and pray for the highest outcome for all. 

June 21: Summer Solstice - The light of the Sun is energizing consciousness in the Northern Hemisphere as the Southern Hemisphere is coming out of a period of inner transformation. Loving Venus moves into communicative Gemini on June 22, 2022, the day after the Solstice. This astrological alignment will help soothe jangled nerves and straighten out communications.

July 31-August 1: Mars-North Node of the Moon-Uranus in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius - This volatile celestial alignment portends a greater loss of the reality we have depended upon in the past to make way for a more evolved way of being. While there may be a period of uncertainty, we will be like the trapeze artist who must let go of one bar to reach the next  - to take us further along the road to a higher state of being.

September 9 - October 2: Mercury Retrograde in Libra & Virgo - This Mercury Retrograde will focus on rectifying misunderstandings in personal and professional relationships.

And as always, remember to practice positive thinking, visualization, affirmations, meditation, and pray for the highest outcome for all! 

Many blessings for the summer season,
