Summer Solstice 2010 and its significant to 2012 After a long, snowpocalyptic winter here in the Northeast U.S. we
are jubilant to note that the Summer Solstice, the Season of the Sun, the Season of Fire and Light, is upon us. We celebrate the Sun, giver of life to
all creatures on earth.
This year's Summer Solstice is intimately linked with a Partial Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer/Capricorn (Sun in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn) five
days later on July 26th. Because the Solstice is linked with this Eclipse, a Portal of sorts opens this week. This portal is like a wormhole into a
summer jam-packed with a Total Solar Eclipse on July 11th, as well as a Cardinal Cross in the sky, constantly being activated/ignited - up through the
end of August.
It's going to be a long, hot summer - celestially speaking.
The Summer Solstice (in Northern Hemisphere, Winter Solstice in Southern Hemisphere) occurs at 7:30am EDT on Monday June 21, 2010.
Throughout time, the Solstices have been power points and honored as such by humans. Twice each year we move into a window in space-time when the sun
and earth communicate in their extremes and energy is exchanged - humanity, earth, sun, light, dance of light and dark, a Tipping Point in
consciousness in the service of evolution.
And during our current times - characterized by the Turning of the Ages, i.e. the end a 26,000-year cycle and the beginning of a new one - the
Solstices carry even more strength. They are charged beyond what was known previously.
The word "solstice" means "sun standing still" or Sun-Stop.
This impacts us because our sense of time is driven by the sky, with its daily, monthly and yearly cycles. The summer and winter solstices are key
reference points in our calendar, marking the yearly extremes of the Sun's changing height in the sky at noon. Whether we realize it or not, our
civilization is ordered around the happenings in the sky. We are swimming in these energy patterns, just not consciously most of the time.
Why does Summer Solstice Happen? The seasons of the year are caused by the 23.5º tilt of the earth's axis. Because the earth is rotating like a top
or gyroscope, the North Pole points in a fixed direction continuously - towards a point in space near the North Star. But the earth is also revolving
around the sun. During half of the year, the southern hemisphere is more exposed to the sun than is the northern hemisphere. During the rest of the
year, the reverse is true.
Unlike the Equinoxes (which are all about perfect balance) the Solstices are a Tipping Point - toward or away from The Light.
At our current point in the long cycles of earthtime, the Summer Solstice aligns with THE GALACTIC EDGE. This is the edge of our known world. When we
look toward the stars of Orion (and others in that area) we are looking out into deep space, also known as the Galactic Edge. This area of the heavens
is also known to many cultures as the point where Souls enter the Milky Way Galaxy to incarnate on earth. It has been called THE SILVER GATE.
