How are we already approaching Summer Solstice this weekend?! I feel like 2020 is absolutely flying past and probably for a good reason too given this year will certainly be one for the history books. This Summer Solstice though is different for many reasons so I thought this week it would be a great time to share how to work with and utilise the solstice vibes.
This year has been different for many reasons but equally this Summer Solstice will also be different not only as we’re in lockdown or you might be just coming back out of lockdown but also because energetically we have a lot going on! This Sunday (Summer Solstice) is also a powerful new moon eclipse. Eclipses are known for shaking and waking things up and can feel disruptive in many ways. As with anything how it plays out in your life will be completely unique to you if you’re doing the work, listening to your intuition and not ignoring the signs the likelihood is your in for a smoother ride but it will totally depend on if anything karmic needs to come up etc. To add to the eclipse energy we also have 5 – yes 5 planets in retrograde right now including our good old favourite Mercury! Mercury went into retrograde on the 18th and will last until July 12th. This means we’re in for a very interesting energetic cocktail as we lead up to the third and final eclipse of eclipse season ending on the 5th July’s full moon.
So hold onto your crown Queen, because the next few weeks are going to feel unpredictable and bit wild energetically as it gets us to where we need to be. This isn’t to scaremonger at all, as like I said it will play out differently for everyone but collectively I think in the outer we will see a lot unfold over the next few weeks. So it’s important during this time to check in with what feels like your own stuff and what feels collective energy. So how does this all tie into this weekend’s Summer Solstice?
Well, traditionally the Summer Solstice is a time for celebrating. It’s the lightest ‘ying’ time of the year and a time to celebrate the light, life and ourselves. This is a very potent time for birthing new energy, new beginnings, manifesting, and welcoming in abundance too. So now is certainly the time to be welcoming in new energy and receiving your manifestations! Which means it’s equally important to be setting those intentions during this time. This is also the perfect time to reflect on what you’d like to let go of here and now to make way for the new. Now like I said the energy this time around will feel different because of what is happening this weekend on top of the solstice energy, so it’s important to be flowing with this but you can still set your intentions and focus on what you’d like to bring in energy-wise over the next six months.
“Traditionally the Summer Solstice is a time for celebrating. It’s the lightest ‘ying’ time of the year and a time to celebrate the light, life and ourselves.

Some great practices you could do this weekend over the solstice is one to set your intentions as it’s also a new moon. So hopefully, you’d be doing your new moon ritual anyway to manifest over the next month, and with this added eclipse energy too it’s only going to boost those manifesting vibes even more! You could also write a list of gratitude for all the wonderful things that have come into fruition for you over the last six months as this is a great way to celebrate the light and call in more abundance too. I’d also suggest writing a celebration list of all the great things you’ve done over the last six months and make sure to celebrate you because it’s you who’s done the hard work here to make all of these wonderful things happen alongside the Universe. If you can do all of these in nature too this weekend extra points to you as it’s also great to connect to Mother Earth with the Summer Solstice and connect to the elementals also! Either way honour yourself this weekend, whatever this energy cocktail brings up for you. Honour where you’re at and if you feel called to do these practices – great. I’ve also included my Pinterest graphic as well below for the Summer Solstice so you can follow along with these steps too in your rituals this weekend.
