Sunset is one of my favorite times of day. It is a liminal time and quite spectacular. With the Solstice upon us ( in my 5th house) and Jupiter trine Uranus sparking my Venus in Sag, my Leo energy is lit up like a Christmas tree! Leo is the ruler of the Sun and while today our Sun enters the sign of Cancer, the current energies are more fiery and incendiary. I have found this weekend full of unexpected fireworks and am hoping the sun will keep all of us warm and sparkly. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, I hope you are in alignment with the transition into the tranformational nature of Winter.
I don’t have anything particularly profound to say except that the light is always accessible. Conscious breath , a slower pace, and living with intention make a difference for me. I could focus on the bleakness that Father’s Day holds for me, or I could celebrate the men who commit to parenting and strive to be their best selves for their families. That is preferable to seething in bitterness and regret regarding men who failed to live up to their responsibilities and created negative ripples.
Like I wrote in a recent post, it is better to walk and don’t look back. If I can love myself enough to be love in the world, I am on a correct path. If I can love those who were not parented well, simply because they are consciousness, all is well. My mother reminded me today of the reactions of the loved ones who lost many in the Charleston murder tragedy. They love and forgive with vulnerability, purity, and passion. They are instruments of love. They shine with the brilliance of our star, the sun.
This blog is called litebeing chronicles because I seek to shine brightly and be a light for the planet. My stories illustrate my struggles and my triumphs. My chart ruler is Leo and it sits in the 7th house of relationships. I aspire to shine in service to others, knowing on another level, the other is a projection of me. Non duality can be quite heady and elusive, but that does not deter us from doing our best.
I chose 3 songs to provide a Solstice Soundtrack: 1 Shine by Collective Soul, 2 Turn on Your Love Light by the Dead, and 3 Light My Fire by Jimmy Morrison.
1 I just could not resist :
2 Performed on Summer Solstice 1989
3 This video runs for 11:11 minutes so I had to choose it!
Which songs remind you of Leo or the Sun? Do tell!
Blessings on this Solstice Sunday dear radiant litebeings.
