At the Summer Solstice the sun appears to stand still for about 8 days when it has reached its furthest point to the North.  Midsummer, June 24th is generally honored as the moment when the sun will have made its first move to the south again.  The plants and trees will have reached their optimum dimensions and the process of maturing and strengthening begins, to bring flower to fruit and seed.  For the Native Americans this is the Strawberry Harvest Ceremony as strawberry is the first fruit of the season that has come to full maturity and has complete seeds.  The summer solstice announces the stage of full manifestation in the physical; we honor the sprouts that have come to flower, that have overcome the challenges of Spring and climate change. Many of the ceremonies in the past revolved around protective rituals so that flower can make it to fruit and seed, and lifestock continues to thrive so that life can go on..

At the Summer Solstice we embrace the fully opened flowers in which the earth outshines the sun. According to the Dagara people of West Africa, we are in a nature year.  Nature is the culmination of all elements giving form to the impulse of life in service to one another.  Nature’s characteristics is continuous flux, change, and transformation.  Nature holds us to authenticity, truth, creativity, magic, mystery, and the eternal cycles of birth and death.  It keeps us in motion to expand, grow, and evolve with death at its center that all has to come apart and go within and dream its next expression on the spiral of evolution.  This energy frequency facilitates the great changes  that are taking place upon the earth this year.  It calls us to become flexible and adaptable.  We are invited to listen to nature’s wisdom and know the elements that make up our living world.
