Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and the welcoming of the summer season. In this year of change, the beginning months brought a great deal of unexpected changes for many people. Some were perceived as good changes, while others were perceived as shocking and surreal. This particular summer solstice carries some additional magic, and it feels that the planets that have been "out of sorts" are coming back into alignnment. There is a strange, but far better, shift in the Universe as of today. Now is the time to be mindful of your thoughts and actions. Whether you are beginning something new, or beginning something again, harness the energy of the summer solstice. As my daughter, Kelci, prepares to graduate high school, I am aware of the bittersweet nature of new beginnings. Expect only good in your life.
