Summer solstice: the warm light of the Sun
Solstice has Latin roots in the word solstitium, which means “sun-stopping”. The sun rises and set points to change over the year, and on this day it gets to a maximum spot, and from there reverses direction after the solstice day.
The Stonehenge in England marks the point that the sun reaches in the solstice day. The Summer Solstice day is also the first day of Summer. A happy day for many people.
Celebration of the light
Through the times, people have gathered to celebrate this day. The sun has always been worshiped and honored since it’s one of the primordial elements to life. The sun, and the changes over the year, are deeply connected with the cycles of life and death that are present everywhere in nature.
In past cultures, changing seasons, or the sowing and harvesting times were life references and motive for respect and celebration. The strongest connection to Mother Earth was a key element.
This sacred day works a portal. It gives access to positive and celestial energy, and a push for you to achieve your potential, to put your energy out there in the world. The light of the universe is embracing you and help you access your own power.
By connecting it to your zodiac sign, you can understand better the influence of Summer solstice in your life.
Summer solstice and zodiac signs
The Sun is connected to our ego as well, and fire signs have a natural tendency to appreciate their ego. Despite the ego is referred to as evil many times, the ego is necessary, and a conscious approach to it leads to a controlled and beautiful way to manage our egos. The Summer solstice is a great time for Aries natives to celebrate their egos, it’s a great moment to make peace with the faults you find in yourself, and celebrate what you love about you.
Taurus is consistent and focused, but sometimes the low vibes of Taurus make these natives lazy and too attached to the materialistic world, as well as inflexible. The strong presence of the fire during this time will help you overcome laziness, and promote change. Remember that fire is the transformative element and you can use it in your favor.
On another side, and you can obviously mix both, it’s a great moment for you to be in nature and celebrate your appreciation for the luxuries of life, but on a perspective of connection to nature.
Summer solstice asks you, Gemini, to find a balance between taking care of your home and life, and not let go of the opportunity of sharing great moments with friends.

Despite being a water sign, Scorpios are passion-oriented and the Summer fires up that passion and your sexuality. On the downside, you might get lost in a world of luxury and party that doesn’t add much into your life. On the bright side, you can use all that energy to connect with yourself and get out of the comfort zone constructively.
Maybe because you can party and feel the light all year long, it doesn’t make such a difference for you taking this time to live life to the fullest (well, that’s all year round, right?).

The passion of the fire will help you pursue your dreams with a smile and your face.
