We continue on our spiritual journey of the Wheel of the Year with Litha, the Summer Solstice. The Summer Solstice marks the point in the year when we have the longest day and the shortest night.
The last major point on the Wheel of the Year was Beltane, the moment when we felt the first heartbeat of our solar initiate who will be given birth to at the Winter Solstice. We have now reached the solstice when the Sun stands still from which it will continue to wane. It is at this moment that the Sun penetrates the cosmic womb, gifting the frequency with a soul. It is a combining of the divine light with the divine within. It is an ascension of spiritual growth.
Ensoulment is when a fetus has a soul. Different Religions have varying views on this, but it was Aristotle who believed that the fetus receives a soul approximately 90 days into the pregnancy. From the moment the gestation period began at the Spring Equinox (Ostara) to the Summer Solstice, we have reached approximately 90 days. So we can assume that our frequency of the year receives its divine consciousness at the Summer Solstice. Remember, the latin word for Sun is Sol which becomes the word Soul.
Sun & Moon
The Sun beats down on the Northern Hemisphere on June 21st, soaking us in its spiritual rays. They are encoded with receptors that are used to recognize the divinity within all things sort of like stamping life with their divine statuses.
The Sun enters the Tropical sign of Cancer on June 21st who is the highest octave of motherly love. Imagine the Solstice as a great big hug from the divine feminine. On this day when we celebrate the peak of solar energy, we are also honouring the ruler of Cancer the Moon. After the Solstice the Sun begins turning back and the lunar energies emerge. We say goodbye to untamed individuality and welcome the new identity the soul signature of each individual…even if they are in the womb. One month later the Sun enters Leo which is the time to honour our inner radiant glory.
Celebrate the Summer Solstice by bathing yourself in the Sun’s light which can reactivate your soul signature. Know that the solar frequency that was released at the Winter Solstice is receiving its divine task on this day of Litha. Ensoulment begins.
