Summer Solstice: The Spiritual Meaning Behind The First Day Of Summer
2023’s summer solstice will arrive on June 21. This is the longest day of the year, and marks the halfway point of the year as well as the first day of summer.
The summer solstice represents the element of fire, and as the warm weather outside embraces your body, it will spread to your soul and give you a jolt of energetic rejuvenation.
This is the time to put in work to master your habits. Whether it’s a fitness journey or a new interest in gardening or meditation, it’s time to kick the habit up a notch.
Think of yourself as a plant during this time. Relentless, active self-care is what's needed to take you through to the next season of rest.
This is when the sun enters Cancer, which is all about love. Embrace that energy by spending time with people who bring you joy — preferably in an outdoor setting.
You may find yourself drawn to cooking, entertaining, and home improvements for the first month of summer. Embrace this love and care to keep yourself balanced and engaged.
