Summer 69

No, not the summer of 69. Just summer 69. The summer solstice arrived on June 20 at 4:59 p.m. this year, officially ushering in summertime and the astrological sign of cancer. Yes, I am a crab. On Saturday in the early a.m. I gathered with 28 women in Butte Creek Canyon for Wheel Of The Year celebration. We chanted and visualized and did those things that women do at these types of celebrations. We were honoring Litha, The Summer Solstice as well as each other and ourselves. During the visualization we met with our male selves and received gifts from them. Mine gave me a gift which he placed in my womb. It was warm and fiery, the gift of passion and orgasm. Then we walked to the creek and sent wishes for the planet off in little boats we made, making their journey to the ocean. Each woman stated her personal gift to the world and then made her wish and released her boat.

My gift to the world is being an advocate and guide to help facilitate better communication, specifically truth-telling. Both the truth of the moment and the absolute truth.

My wish for the world is for everyone to separate from themselves that which separates them from others.

Below comes from this website here:


At the Summer Solstice the sun is at its highest and brightest and the day is at its longest.

The Summer Solstice is a time of fulfillment of love and sexual maturity.

Although the days begin to grow shorter after the Summer Solstice, the time of greatest abundance is still to come. The promises of the Goddess and God are still to be fulfilled.

This is a time of beauty, love, strength, energy, rejoicing in the warmth of the sun, and the promise of the fruitfulness to come. It seems a carefree time, yet in the knowledge of life, is the knowledge of death...At this time of year, our physical energy is generally at its peak, and we are active and strong.

Happy birthday sweet sister.
