The last time the Summer Solstice landed on a full moon was in 1948, so today marks a high energy day as Archangel Uriel takes charge of the summer season,working with the spiritual energies in Nature. Uriel means "God is Light" He is often known as the tallest of the angels, with eyes so clear they can see across eternity. Working with Archangel Uriel can help to improve our own spiritual vision.
Ted Andrews writes in Nature-Speak, that the summer solstice marks the high point of the "Year of the Soul." For a brief time, all four planes of life are aligned with the physical and as such there is more direct flow of spiritual energy available to us. This marks a time in which separateness can yield to unity in any area of our lives.
This is also when the forces of Nature reach the peak of their annual cycle. Transformation is the keynote. During this season, it is easier to communicate with the angels and devas.
It is also a wonderful time of harmonizing the masculine and feminine within ourselves to promote a greater expression, a high birth. It is known as the time of the Mystic Marriage within. The linking of the male and female, the bridging of the pineal and the pituitary (crown and brow chakra) to open ourselves to a new realization of Who we truly are.
By understanding the natural rhythm of the seasons, we learn that Autumn releases energy through purification in preparation. Winter releases the forces of love, the feminine energy. Spring releases the force of will, the masculine power, but summer releases the Power of Light. It s a time of the Light Within, a time of powerful illumination if we choose to focus our energies on spiritual matters.
Happy Summer Solstice! Welcome Archangel Uriel!
