Summer Solstice, Full Moon
This Monday will be the summer solstice. It will also be a full moon. Sometimes a confluence of events like this gives us a sense of heightened power and possibility.
The summer solstice, also known as midsummer, or Litha, presents us with a paradox.
On this first day of summer and longest day of the year, we begin to lose the sun, and begin our steady march toward winter, and the dark half of the year.
The full moon is a time of heightened psychic awareness. In meditation, we can to harness the power of the moon, and direct it to manifest our best destiny.
Take the opportunity, this Monday, to energize yourself with the light of the sun, knowing that, as the light diminishes, it need not diminish within you. Then, honor the full moon by sending its energy toward your good intentions.
The Tarot Sun and Moon in Meditation
In the Major Arcana of tarot, the mysterious Moon is card 18, while the glorious Sun is card 19.
In honor of the summer solstice and full moon, perform a meditation with these two cards.
As you spend time breathing with the Sun, breathe in the brilliance and confidence in this card, and make it your own.
As you spend time breathing with the Moon, allow yourself to open to your own psychic awareness. Invite Spirit to speak to you in your dreams.

Deep Soul Meditation
Join us for an evening of growth and healing! Using relaxing guided imagery, Christiana will take you on a journey of healing with three specific phases.
Phase One will work with the seven chakras. One by one, you will be guided to release all that does not serve you from each chakra. From there, you will activate each chakra, bringing you to a place of well-being, peace and motivation.
Phase Two is a journey into your soul’s past. In this deep state of meditation, Christiana will help you unlock your soul’s memories of past lives. As you understand your soul’s past, you will more easily understand your current situations and motivations, and be able to release past trauma.
In Phase Three you will look to the future. Using the healing and understanding that has come from the first two meditations, you will be able to clearly focus your vision on creating your best possible future. This technique of creative visualization is designed to help you set and reach goals, attracting into your life the people and situations that will create the best possible future for you.
Class fee is $30. Call Robin at True, 203-350-0343
I hope to see many of you during August!
Sun and Moon Tarot Spread
Here’s an original two-card tarot spread that is very simple, but can deliver a powerful reading.
Simply pull two cards.
Card One represents the sun in your life. This card discusses your ability to be confident and happy in your life. How do you let your light shine, or what do you need to do to allow that to happen?
Card Two represents the Moon in your life. How well do you hear your intuition? How able are you to tune in to your guidance? This card will discuss your inner, spiritual life, and your psychic awareness.
Of course, if you get the Sun card in the Sun position, or the Moon card in the Moon position, you are fully embracing this energy in your life!

Your One-Card Weekly Reading
Your one-card reading this week is Justice.
Given the terrible events of last weekend, it’s hard not to interpret this card from a national, or global, perspective.
Justice reminds us to do the right thing in all situations. Justice also assures us that a balance will be struck.
Even in the face of things that seem terribly unfair, we must trust that the scales will balance in the end, and that justice will somehow be served.
In a time of extremism and extreme fear, Justice assures us that soon our world will return to a normal balance.
In a time of division and conflict, Justice tells us that a time of compromise and unity is on its way.
