Solstice arrives Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 09:13 UTC 5:13 am EDT, 2:13 am PDT, 7:13 pm AEST, 2:43 pm IST
At these threshold times, liminal times, such as these so close to Solstice, I often find myself experiencing the transition and transformation much like this: neither in one season or another, stateless between the two . . . yet experiencing the pull of their energetic elements, and the turbulence of the crossing.
Sometimes it’s smooth sailing and I sense that does somewhat depend on the previous season! For me there was considerable change and healing during the Spring months from April to June. I found some new possible directions and inspiration, and it feels like these coming months — energized by the Mother goddesses of Summer Solstice such as Danu and Gaia — are now the time to birth them and cross that threshold between thinking and acting, between Spring and Summer, between inspiration and a new way of being.
The words below from Anna Colton (follow her on Instagram) give me solace. Something is birthing although at this point I cannot yet fully see what it is. But I know it is ready to birth.
If you too have this feeling at this Solstice, let us together have patience — and wonder too — as we anticipate the coming changes.
What is the key to access support for you in this threshold transformation?
For me, as always, it is Mama Earth, Grandmother Moon, and Father Sky:
In the times in life when it all gets to be too much and you feel yourself breaking and you wonder how on Earth we got here and where on Earth we are going and it feels like the Gods have deserted the weakest and the meekest in their most fragile hour It helps a little bit to put your naked feet on the naked ground or to rest your head on a pillow of grass or to find some sun to sit in or a star to gaze upon and as you rest here, being held by the Earth or the sun, or a star, know that a Mystery and an order and a future Creation may be lurking deep within the current Chaos In much the same way that a once swirling and formless hot mess of energy and stardust slowly morphed into a now living and loving and heart-beating miracle who can now sit in the sun and put her feet on the Earth and lay her head on the grass and feel the joy and the pain of being alive. ~ Anna Colton
