From Cressida Pryor: Summer Solstice Letter

"Fullness of being opens wide our hearts;
a soft gaze that can bear the paradox
of the divine mother at our core but there too with
all that is beyond gender; love, truth and beauty. "

Shrine of Cancer and Solstice

Blessings of the Solstice and the Sun in Cancer!  You may hear Olivia Robertson giving the intention of a past Summer Solstice ritual at the Foundation Center by clicking below:

(mp3 / 372 kb / 47 sec)

Audio transcript:
"Here it is my task now, to declare the intention of this Solstice ceremony.  The intention is to blend the feminine, gentle, rays of the Moon with the over-active, masculine energies of the Sun.  So that the feminine Sun - the warmth of the heart - be made more manifest, and the psychic powers of men in the Moon be enhanced.  So the balance of Cancer, the 6 and the 9 - Yin and Yang - may be brought about."

Window Shrine

"Holiest of the Holy, Great Goddess Isis, perpetual comfort of mankind, thou whose beautiful grace nourishes the whole world, whose heart turns towards all those in sorrow and tribulation, as a mother's to her children we invoke thy grace. Hallow this shrine with thy protecting wings that bringeth shade to the weary of heart, jubilation to the distressed and rest to sufferers. Bring vision and healing to those who use this shrine, thou who with thy breath bringeth the dead to life: thou friend of Thoth who art excellent in tongue, bring us thy wisdom: unveil thy Truth."

Quote from the book "Dea", by Olivia Robertson.
