Watchers of the Day
Keepers of the Night
One dance the Sun
One dance the Moon
The Tree grows in both directions
Roots in Darkness
Branches in Light
Both of one Tree
Dance for the Sun
Dance for the Moon
Sing from your hearts
All is in tune

“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its
pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are
identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet;
all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be
The mists are finally clearing. The pre-dawn glow permeates the air with golden orange hues. The air glowing with the light of the star as it travels around the Earth just before it reaches the horizon. And as if it was already there, the Sun’s first rays touch your face. And in that moment all of the darkness of night vanishes like a fantasy.
The mists are clearing with this Summer Solstice. The Sun’s full magnificence is experienced in theNorther Hemisphere at this time and the power of the Light to reveal all things is amplified. The Southern Hemisphere is experiencing their time of greatest darkness. And yet we are all one planet experiencing the extremes of the polarity of the year which our Earthly walk requires. In these moments we get to fully feel into both ends of the same spectrum. In the case of Dark and Light, is their sameness experience?
Neptune square the nodes, the last solar eclipse and Mercury retrograde has had us steeped in the paradox. Now, Venus is in Cancer trine Neptune letting the heart reveal our higher capacity for Love and opening our sense of family and tribe with the whole of creation.
The Earth needs our prayers and the Sun our celebration. We all need each other. When we in the northern hemisphere celebrate this time of maximum light, the southern hemisphere honors the darkness and her magic. We switch roles every sixth months, sharing in cultivating the nature of the swing of this existence and our experience of it. We all need each other. The tree grows both ways.
The fourth Hermetic Principle states that all things manifest in polarity and everything in Creation is but one thing, expressing itself in different degrees of the same thing. While it may feel frustrating at times, it is this principle of reality which gives us the opportunity to explore perception.
Mercury stations direct in Gemini on the 22nd calling into action the work we have done around our communication, listening and mind magic over the past 3 and a half weeks. Now we can engage our mental calisthenics of being able to switch our perception around at will
The Saturn-Uranus square that is the defining feature of this year’s star dance has just had its second perfection on June 14th. They are pointing us towards practical action that supports our individual and collective transformation, re-orientation and revolution.
What would a personal revolution look like for you right now? Perhaps you are in the midst of one already, but with Saturn retrograde for this second soiree we are pulled back to our foundations. Particularly the communities, ideals, connections and resources available there to support our revolution and revelation. Uranus in Taurus calls us towards new systems of money, finance, our bodies and the Earth.
Jupiter stations retrograde the day before the solstice, and begins to recover spiritual lessons, having time to digest and integrate their medicine. In the sign of Pisces the highest goal is to reach a sense of Oneness with all of the Universe and to tap our hearts of forgiveness for any who have wronged us or are suffering by recognizing that each person’s essence also exists inside of us.
Great Guru Jupiter dips back into Aquarius on July 28th, bringing an expansion to our minds that allows us clarity and a higher perspective of where we have just come from, and where we are going. Cultivate your intuition and self-honesty, when we do so simultaneously we can come to rely on our intuition more and more as a steady compass through life. In this New Earth it is less about what we believe, but how we believe. May we believe with love, faith and joy and a deeper understanding of the sacred, morphic nature of reality.
Most of the outer planets will retrograde over the next three months, allowing the collective to turn perspective inward and reflect, re-orient and heal the inner incarnations of collective struggles and successes. What is happening outside of us also exists within us in some way. Which end of the paradox are you in? What is the sameness between your position and that of the other that reconciles the paradox? When we realize this, anything is possible.
