June 2020 Solstice Eclipse = Sacred Darkness (Includes Free Tarot Spread)

This weekend is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere! In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s Winter Solstice.

The Summer Solstice is the day with the greatest length of sun, and the Winter Solstice has the greatest length of darkness.

So why does this spread, with a focus on sacred darkness work for both? A couple of reasons.

  • First: it’s also a Solar Eclipse (which will be visible in parts of the continents of Africa and Asia). A Solar Eclipse can only happen on the New Moon. The New Moon is a phase when we can’t actually see the moon, because no light is reflected off the Moon at that time.
  • Second: these events are also taking place within the energy of Cancer, which beckons us to immerse ourselves in all the emotions, thoughts and experiences that tend to arise during phases of darkness.
  • Third: we now have five planets in retrograde, which tends to surface all those things that we haven’t yet faced, as they relate to each planet’s energy. You don’t even need to believe the planets affect us to notice the effects. 

All of which brings us back to why I’m talking about sacred darkness.

Although those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will be enjoying a long day of (hopefully!) sunshine, we will still be feeling the pull of emotions that reside in and surface in the sacred space of darkness. 

You know I’m all about sharing empowering content to help you tap into your resourcefulness and intuition. So here is a Tarot spread that doubles as journaling prompts. This means you can use any kind of deck, and you can also just use these as journaling prompts if you don’t have cards.
