The Sun

If you would visualise your life as the passage of the Sun through the sky then you would find the harmony that you seek.

When the Sun rises in the morning there is no limit set for its radiance and no boundary set for its passage. Be then like the Sun which shines on the just and the unjust, for who shall say which is which, and who having wisdom would try to discriminate, for the Sun has no need to give to one only, for it is everlasting and its power infinite.

Summer Solstice  (June 20/21)

Longest day and shortest night, symbolic rising of the golden dawn, not a group or a myth, not a hope or a dream, but the real flooding and receiving of the light of conscious awareness within. Time of greater growth and the drawing down of the light. At high noon symbolically the time of no shadow, where nothing is hidden and everything is out in the open. The axis of Stonehenge is aligned to the Summer Solstice sunrise in the north-east, where the sun can be observed to rise over the outlying Hele Stone, giving the most northerly rising of the sun. Father’s Day, honouring fathers and fatherhood. St John’s Day. Cancer, cardinal water.
