Summer Solstice


Summer Solstice, Midsummer, Litha

By Tara Sutphen

21st June

“In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight” – Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)

gSummer Solstice marks the end of the waxing year. And the rays of the sun directly strike one of the two tropical latitude lines. June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, as winter begins in the southern hemisphere. On this day, the earth’s “circle of luminescence” will be from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. The equator receives twelve hours of daylight, as there will be 24 hours of daylight at the North Pole and 24 hours of darkness at the South Pole.

gAll over the world people honor this day as an important reminder of the apex of light and to cast away evil and their problems. Northern Hemisphere inhabitants use June 21 as the day of celebration, but the splendor of light lasts from new moon to full moon.

Worshipping the Sun’s great power, all cultures celebrate in some way. Celts and Slavs dance around bonfires while Chinese marked the day honoring Li, the Goddess of Light. The celebrants of modern and ancient ceremonies tune in that life comes from the sun. It is life giving and life supporting. We’ve recently had the good fortune to have electricity, greenhouses, and shipment suppliers. How will you celebrate? We all may not get a chance to dance around the bonfire but it’s a time to bask in the light, sit in the sun, cast our worries away and awaken to our lives.

Item : The Sacred Circle USD $ 10.99

Meditation By Tara Sutphen

Following Tara’s “under the stars” induction, you travel to a sacred stone circle in the middle of a meadow. Here, in the center of the circle, you meet a beautiful woman dressed in chiffon. As she chants, you experience an expanding vortex of power within: “Where light meets darkness … where the beginning encircles the end … where joy nullifies pain … we now choose to slip between the worlds beyond time, beyond space, and we invoke the positive powers of the Universe to assist us to manifest our desires.” Chakra balancing is followed with an inspiration ritual in which you open your heart and mind to the limitless positive potentials of life on earth. You withdraw an object from a box that relates to your purpose. Walking counter clockwise you recall a happy event from the past and transmit the vibrations into the present. A clock becomes a symbol placed in the circle to assist you make the most of your valuable time. Much more. 30 Minutes.

Happy Full Wolf Moon

Full Wolf Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Wolf Moon (Native American) at 22* Cancer will culminate January 12, 2017 3:35AM PdT/6:35AM EdT (Farmers Almanac). The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (98.1% illuminated), 13.5 days old and at a distance of 367648 Km (228446 Miles).

This Full Moon in Cancer is about being in harmony with your family and friends while being subtle, spirited and brave. Have you been engaging in your authentic heart-center. It’s probably more than actual love or being kindhearted, it’s a state of being. It’s an inner truth. It’s a deeper understanding of life and its joys and perils. When our outlook is one of wonder, and we offer a certain grace to ourselves and to others, we’re given plenty by the universe. We all have karma, an agenda, destiny in place with the people we choose to congregate. These people teach us what we want and what we don’t want. The reactions are placed on our path as guidelines. Think of all the people placed before you, and how you make conclusions for your personal agenda. Not only in love, but your family relationships, friends and co-workers. Before our birth we may have not known what we were getting ourselves in for. We can anticipate there was a plan. Tomorrow always gives us another hopeful day to examine and reconstruct what is yet to come.

With our higher knowledge, some decisions must be given revocation and because we can make it so as we are given chances over and over again. We have many tools and good people showing us what life is really supposed to be like. How we can wake up in the morning and tap in to the beauty instead of a bleak existence. We are the players of our real life dream. We have to believe in benevolence, love and contentment. Because if we dwell on the improprieties, we’ll become confused. We all know there are terrible things happening in the world, and God forbid they are happening to any of us. We know bad things occur and as we cultivate compassion, it will also be presented.

Goodness comes from doing the right thing in bad situations. We are not to be passive but resourceful. When we grow up and can’t always stay in that state of grace as the human condition gets confused and dragged down by karma. We can reframe wayward situations and societies rules by solutions and proactive movement. We have a sense of what our lives are supposed to look like. Where do you come back to our self, to those we love and say adieu to the ones who give us misperceptions or anguish. There is always an easy way out, and it’s to make comprehensive decisions, while living up to honor.
