Tarot Blog Hop: Celebrate the Sunrise


For Seekers – Seasonal Observances

Welcome to the Summer Solstice Tarot Blog Hop!

 Perhaps you are joining me from Christiana Gaudet’s blog (or make sure to back up to her) on this hop around the internet to celebrate the Solstice.  Be sure to continue the hop by moving from this blog to Matt Williams’

This hop’s theme of Celebrate the Sunrisecomes from Chloë McCracken:  “I am inspired in this title by the yearly practice of celebrating the dawn held atStonehenge in celebration of the Summer solstice. This is the dawn of the longest day of the year, and the sun peeks through the heel stones and the outer stone circle to reach into the heart of the stone circle, to the altar stone. For me, the fact of this stone circle connects us with millennia of celebration of this special time of year.”

Our collective posting time is also set to the rising of the sun at Stonehenge.  So though I will be heading to bed as the magic of the modern technology brings this post to you, I, too, will be connected to this celebration grounded in stone, lit by the sun, and unbounded by clock time.

My offering for this hop is a guided visualization meditation that starts at sunrise and brings you into an encounter in a circle.  Not a circle of stone, but of trees.  This is one of my Journey into the Tarot meditations inspired by the 22 cards of the Major Arcana.  The Gaian Wheel with its trees of different seasons is the direct inspiration and The Sun offers its light and wisdom as well.

Gaian Wheel Meditation for the Summer Solstice.

The meditation includes suggestions for Solstice activities, breath work, chakra balancing, and the guided visualization.  The full running time is about 45 minutes.

More meditations can be found at Journey into the Tarot.

Now continue your hop by visiting Matt Williams.

I love Carolyn’s guided meditation! If you haven’t hooked up with her Journey into Tarot meditation series, I encourage you to do that. I always go so deeply into them. 🙂
