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."
