The Summer Solstice – Time For Faeries

Celebrating Faeries, Wishes and The Good Ole Summertime
By Springwolf, D.D., Ph.D.  🐾

The Summer Solstice rings in the waning year and begins the slow good-bye of the sun as the days become shorter and the darkness returns to the land. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we celebrate the Summer Solstice on June 21st or 22nd in the Southern Hemisphere it falls on December 21st or 22nd.

As the story goes, the Oak King has ruled over the Earth, bringing the Sun to warm the ground so fields could be planted for wheat, barley and gardens can grow. When the solstice arrives, the Holly King wakes from his slumber and challenges the Oak for supremacy in the sky.

Their battles rage through the summer as the Oak King fights to hold on to his love, Mother Earth. The clashes between these Kings are heard through the Thunder drums of summer storms as lightning crackles  from the striking of their swords in bright explosions.

To watch over the land, the Faeries come out at night to protect the children of Mother Earth and their forest homes from the battles that rage on beyond the clouds above. The rabbits, squirrels, birds, trees and flowers are all cared for by the magikal Fae and even you are protected beneath their wings.

If you honor the work of the Fae on the special Summer Solstice night, they may return your kindness by helping to manifest a wish you asked during the Solstice festival. For this is the night the Fae dance by the bonfires and spread their magik across the land beneath the light of Grandmother Moon.

King of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The Fae are working to help you manifest the energy you’ve been creating to turn things around. It feels as if it’s going extra slow because others are distracted and haven’t been doing their part. You may have to do a little nagging today and this weekend to get the ball rolling again. Don’t be afraid to push a little bit and remind them of what needs to be done and the deadlines involved. It takes a team to make all this work out in the end.


Additional Insight:

Don’t be angry or upset with how others are contributing to your plans to make things happen and turn your finances around. They’re stressed out and filled with anxiety too. Everyone is feeling overwhelmed; it’s not only you.

Giving gentle reminders and asking what you can do to help will give them the nudge to get back to work. Reminding them that things can’t move forward until they do their part will also help. As long as you’re doing that nagging with a calm voice of support. Tone is everything today!

Don’t try to make them feel guilty, or blame for something that has already occurred. They’re not the only responsible for the mess you’re in. You had a hand in it too. If you want to make things work out for everyone, you’re going to have to face the bad and the good as a team to get it done.

Spend today and the entire weekend being calm and patient. But remember you’re the one who rules over your domain. Lead the way by example and with compassion and concern. Others will look up to you and want to do their part to please you and gain your favor. A much nicer way to get what you need….and want. Continue reading
