Winter Solstice 2020: Powerful Rituals For Spiritual Renewal

Published

Winter Solstice 2020 Image

The winter solstice 2020 can be compared to the dark night of the soul that holds an ancient seed of infinite renewal. This is the birthday of our life-giving sun.

Sunlight is the source of hope, the eternal atman, and the source of our souls as well.  The sun sustains and empowers life through the protective container of dharma, the balance of seasons and days that allows life to flourish and grow.
 
On the winter solstice 2020, the sun reaches the dark zenith of the underworld. From this deep and grounded place, true light and hope are reborn stronger than ever before.

In this article, I will share with you the meaning behind the winter solstice 2020 and the spiritual practices and rituals you can perform on this powerful day!

Winter Solstice In Vedic Astrology (Uttarayana)

In Vedic astrology, the winter solstice is the first day of Uttarayana. This is the name given to the period from the winter to the summer solstice – the six months when the light is returning. The term Uttarayana is derived from two Sanskrit words “uttara” (North) and “ayana” (movement) thus indicating a semantic of the northward movement of the Earth on the celestial sphere. 

It is believed that the world returns to the blessed path of heaven in the auspicious time of Uttarayana. In India, it is believed that at this time the gods are awake and send blessings to people.

The period from the summer solstice to the winter solstice is called dakshinayana, the time when the gods sleep. This is the time when the Sun begins to trace a southward movement in the Earth’s sky in the northern hemisphere of the planet.

According to Hindu tradition, the six months of Uttarayana are a single day of the Gods; the six months of Dakshinayana are a single night of the Gods. 

Thus, winter solstice marks the beginning of a favorable period for all people.

People who have been spiritually aware have always identified this transition as a possibility for lifting their consciousness on a higher level.

Particularly, the first half of Uttarayana until the equinox in March is a period where the maximum amount of the Divine blessings is available. The human system is more receptive to the Divine blessings at that time than any other.

Uttarayana is the time when enlightenment is available for anyone who puts pure intention and effort into spiritual work. This is also the period of receptivity, grace, and attainment of the ultimate.

Winter Solstice 2020

Uttarayana Winter Solstice Image

Winter solstice 2020 in Northern Hemisphere will be at 10:02 UTC. on Monday, December 21. It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. From this point on, the light day will gradually increase, and the night will decrease.

In 2020, the Winter Solstice will take place at the same time as the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter (the closest in the last 800 years). Therefore, on the one hand, at this time, caution is required and with the need to abandon important or new and complex cases, you can expect disruption of plans and loss of motivation. But on the other hand, right now the impossible is becoming possible. This is a kind of opportunity to make a quantum leap, completely reset, and reach a new level. ️

This time is favorable for:

  • letting go of destructive programs;
  • purification of your living space, cleansing your body, and clearing your mind;
  • preparation for transition to another level of vibration, consciousness, and being;
  • mindset transformation;
  • mastering the manifesting power.

At the end of the year, it is recommended to loosen your grip, relax and just gain energy to contemplate, rethink, conduct deep self-analysis and try to understand the true meaning of your existence, your purpose, and your mission in this life. It’s good to spend this time quietly and without fuss.

Things To Do On Winter Solstice

winter solstice rituals image

Winter solstice 2020 is the time to recall with gratitude to how things have changed and grown in the last year. This is the best time to make New Year’s resolutions and it is a powerful time to plant seeds of hope in the face of life’s challenges.

On the winter solstice, it’s important to rest: get some sleep, meditate, take a walk, and get some fresh air. Take time to read and take care of yourself.

It’s important to remember that on this day, you lay the foundation for everything that will happen in the next six months — think about how you want to spend this time and plan the winter solstice day accordingly.

Winter Solstice 2020 is the time to get rid of all unnecessary things that bother you. Clean your house, disassemble the wardrobe, give away things that you don’t use anymore to charity. Also, if you start getting rid of bad habits on this day, the Higher Powers will give you all the help and support that you need.

It’s important to purify yourself on this day, not just externally, but also from the inside. On the day of the winter solstice 2020, it is very beneficial to observe fasting.

Spend time with your loved ones, spread positive vibes, radiate optimism, share your light! In any case, do not fight, argue, or gossip on this day! On the contrary, make peace with those with whom there were conflicts.

On this energetically strong day, it is important to perform spiritual practices. You can perform any practice aimed at purification or forgiveness.

Here are some powerful practices and rituals you can perform on this day.

Energy Cleansing Ritual

Energy Cleansing Bath Ritual Image

Before you fill the bathtub with hot water, light scented candles (or ordinary candles), dim the lighting. Set up your intention to purify your energy, clear your aura, etc.

  1. Fill the tub with warm water.
  2. Be sure to add sea salt, because it takes away all the negativity.
  3. Turn on meditative music for relaxation. This can be the sounds of nature, spiritual chants, mantras, etc.
  4. Get in the bathtub.
  5. While laying in the bathtub, visualize that water and salt take away all your problems. And every minute your body becomes lighter and lighter.
  6. When you feel that you have spent enough time in the bath, drain the water. When draining the water, imagine that all the bad things go away with it.
  7. After performing the ritual, you will feel a true renewal at the level of body and soul. You can climb under a warm blanket with a cup of your favorite herbal tea and just let yourself relax.

Practice Of Letting Go

It is best performed at sunset of the day before the winter solstice.

  1. Write down on a piece of paper all the negative and bad things that happened during the year – what you want to get rid of or forget.
  2. Now say your intention to get rid of, let go of, forgive, etc. For example: “I forgive my mother and let go of all the resentment and negative feelings related to her,” or “I let go of all the conflicts that I got involved in this year and open up myself to loving and respectful relationships.”
  3. Now burn a piece of paper, imagining your sorrows burning in the fire. Visualize how along with the smoke, all your problems disappear.
  4. Feel the release.

Ritual “Reconnecting With The Sun”

Cosmic Sun Image
  1. Stand facing east. Look in the direction where the reborn Sun rises.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Sun for all the good things in your life and ask for guidance and assistance in the future.
  3. Visualize your future as you would like it to be. Listen to yourself. What do you feel? Immerse yourself in your feelings. Let the sun recharge you and fill you with its energy.

Abundance Meditation

This practice is best done during the day, when the Sun is at its zenith, to feel more connected to the energy of the Sun.

  1. Make yourself comfortable: lie down or sit down in a meditative posture.
  2. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and slow exhalations. As you inhale, imagine how the solar energy of golden color enters your Solar Plexus (Manipura chakra) along with the air.
  3. When you feel the heat in your Solar Plexus, mentally say the words:

“I feel the power of sunlight in me. I am one with the energy of the Universal abundance. I attract prosperity and embrace abundance in my life. So it is!”

  1. Feel how the energy of the sun is circulating inside you and how its heat spreads from Manipura chakra and fills your entire body.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Universe for everything it gives you, for the abundant life, and limitless opportunities. Smile and open your eyes.

The Bottom Line

The fact that the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter is occurring during the winter solstice this year makes this particular solstice very special.

This year the conjunction happens to be taking place under the air sign Aquarius. This is a definitive marker in time where the world and each one of us will begin to be gradulally initiated into a new technological and sociological inclusive way of relating.

As a global community, we will experience a collective shift in action and behavior. As individuals, we will experience our own unique shifts based on our personal karma. Whether you decide to take advantage of any of the rituals I have described or not, it’s important to take some time during this solstice and simply sit, be still and align yourself with your highest!

The Most Accurate Horoscope for July 2022

Published

Horoscope for June 2022 Image

This article will share the most accurate horoscope for July 2022 based on the Feng Shui flying stars chart. The horoscope includes predictions for different spheres of life and Chinese zodiac signs and essential tips for protection from negative influences of the month and the activation of positive events and good luck.

Most Accurate Horoscope Based On Chinese Zodiac Signs

I believe that the Chinese Horoscope is one of the most accurate horoscopes you can use to correct the month’s energy in your favor. I follow its recommendations every month, and it helps me attract positive events into my life and prevent unfortunate ones.

I often hear that astrology doesn’t affect you if you focus on positive things in life and follow the law of attraction rules. Yes, a positive mindset is very crucial; however, according to Eastern teachings, there are three kinds of luck that affect each of us:

  1. human luck;
  2. earth luck;
  3. heaven luck.

Your positive mindset is your human luck which is just 33% of your total luck score. Your heaven luck (another 33%) comes from astrology. And your earth luck (33%) depends on Feng Shui and the energy you surround yourself with.

Of course, you can rely on your human luck and believe that your positive mindset can help you overcome all the obstacles. However, let’s say something negative happened, and somebody yelled at you, or your husband/wife cheated on you, or somebody you love died. How many of us can stay 100% calm and positive in situations like this? You see, when you allow yourself to react to a negative situation in a negative way, you lose your human luck. Now you can rely only on your heaven and earth luck.

Ok, now let’s take a look at your earth luck. Is your house 100% balanced? Is it 100% clean and free of blockages? Does it have all the remedies and protection from negative energy? If your answer is “no,” you can’t rely on your earth luck. And now all that is left is your heaven luck that depends on astrology.

With the help of Chinese astrology, you can fix your situation, protect yourself from the negative influences of the month, and activate good luck! All you need to know is what type of energy rules the month and how to deal with it.

It can be quite dangerous to play around with the energy of the month. After reading my monthly horoscope articles, people who have started to follow all of the Feng Shui recommendations religiously have noticed significant improvements in their lives. Today I want to share with you these priceless recommendations for July 2022. I’m asking you to take everything you’ll read below seriously. It’s essential to get all the protection tools for the month because they are literally lifesavers!

For reading your July 2022 Horoscope, all you need to know is your Chinese zodiac sign. To do this, you just need to find your date of birth in the Hundred Year Calendar (click here)!

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology For September 2021 Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s fourth month starts on July 7th and ends on August 7th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until August 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

July 2022 is the month of the Fire Goat. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in July 2022 and how to properly choose dates for different events.

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Fire Goat

According to the Chinese calendar, July 2022 is ruled by the Fire Goat.

In Chinese mythology, the Fire Goat is an image of red-hot embers crackling merrily on the fire. Under the influence of July’s energies, people may have an increased desire to be the center of attention at any cost. This tendency may make them more artistic, charismatic, overly emotional, excitable, and even irritable. People can also lie more often and embellish their own achievements.

So, the month promises to be quite hot, both literally and figuratively. Hot and dry weather often drives people crazy, so if you feel emotional tension, try to be more patient and practice mindfulness. Don’t react to possible conflict or problems immediately. Take your time to calm down and cool off first. Also, try to avoid being in the sun too much this month. It may increase the Fire element which could bring more emotional intensity to your life. This month, it is especially beneficial to spend time close to the water – by the lakes, rivers, or ocean. Even swimming in the pool can help to cool down the excessive Fire element.

Southeast is the most dangerous direction for traveling this month. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the Southeast direction.

Auspicious Days In July 2022

July 13th and 25th are good dates for starting long-term affairs. The projects started on this date do not promise rapid development, but they will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Rooster.

July 15th is a good date for official openings, signing deals or contracts, making agreements, and purchasing a property. However, this date is not suitable for those born in the year of the Boar.

Days With a Higher Risk of Getting Viruses And Other Contagious Diseases

July 14th and 26th – during these dates, it’s easier to get a disease. Therefore, make sure you’re being extra cautious these days, as there is an increased risk of getting infections and viruses!

Inauspicious Days In July 2022

July 11th, 18th, 23th, 30th, and August 4th are unfavorable dates to start important things. They bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

July 16th and 28th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete old cases.

August 6th is “Exhausting Day”. The energy potential of this day is very weak. Therefore, try to avoid any big activity on this day.

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: Check Out Your Bagua Sectors

If you are new to Bagua, make sure to read my articles:

Feng Shui Bagua: 8 Aspirations

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the nine sectors of your house is influenced by a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Now let me share with you Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022!

Center

The central part of the house brings wealth luck, good fortune, and intellectual prowess in July. Activate your luck by placing the Jade Emperor Windchime here. However, the overriding annual chi of the 5 Yellow obstructs good luck and can cause health problems. Therefore, make sure you protect yourself by placing the Supremacy of Heaven Plate, the Heart Sutra Pagoda, and the Wu Lou with Joyous Cranes here.

Northwest

The Northwest sector brings accidents, violence, risk of money loss, and betrayals this month. At work, office politics can become a problem if your office is located in the Northwest corner. Be careful of the people you are working with this month. To suppress the negative influence of this sector, place the Anti-Robbery Plaque here and carry the Kuan Kung on Horseback Anti-Betrayal Amulet.

West

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022 promises a prosperous month to the residents of the West sector and those whose front door is facing the West. To activate prosperity energy in your house, display the 100 Blessings Energetic Deer in this sector. However, remember to protect your West sector from the annual Loss Star by displaying the Anti-Robbery Plaque here.

Northeast

Feng Shui astrology for July 2022 promises good fortune, commercial success, wealth, promotion, and career luck to those residing in the Northeast rooms. Activate your success luck by displaying the Completion Horse in this sector. If you play in the stock market or take any kind of gamble, display the Wealth Lock Mini Plaque in the Northeast corner of your office or in the Northeast sector of your house (or living room).

South

Feng Shui astrology for July 2022 promises an excellent month to those residing in the South rooms and whose houses are facing the South direction. You will have career advancement and leadership luck this month. To activate the lucky energies of this sector, display the New Victory Banner here.

North

The North sector gets afflicted by the Illness Star, sapping the energy of those who reside here. If your bedroom is located in this sector, make sure you display the Wu Lou by your bedside and carry the Stay Healthy Amulet at all times. Pregnant women should consider moving to another bedroom this month.

Southwest

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022 promises a quarrelsome month to those residing in the Southwest rooms or whose houses are facing Southwest. The energy of this sector brings conflicts, gossip, arguments, and even legal entanglements. To neutralize the quarrelsome energies, display the Magical Cosmic Apple here. Also, remove anything that makes too much noise from this sector (windchimes, TV, stereo, etc.).

East

The East is favorable for studying and writing this month. This sector can also help attract noble people, patrons, and mentors. Also, it can attract investors to your business. If you have an office in this sector, it may bring you promotion luck. To activate your success luck, display Feng Shui Dragon Carp with 3-Legged Toad Mini Plaque in the East sector of your house.

However, if your bedroom is located here, there is a possibility of romantic scandals caused by the presence of a third party and emotional stress due to relationship problems. To protect your relationship, display the Marriage Lock in the East sector of your house.

Southeast

The Southeast part of your house is a very dangerous area this month! If you and your family spend lots of time here, you will find everyone becoming stressed and short-tempered this month. It also increases the likelihood of sickness, accidents, and misfortune. Try to avoid spending time in this area if possible. To suppress the misfortune energies, display the Heart Sutra Pagoda and Wealth Lock Mini Plaque here.

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: Bonus Tip

For sectors of the home where good energy resides, it is excellent to activate with plenty of noisy activity. Have the radio, TV, or fan placed here to churn up the energy so there is a good level of noise. Also, it is very favorable to install brighter lights in these sectors. Moving the energy in these ways will encourage yang chi to manifest to your advantage.

Summer Solstice 2022: Powerful Rituals, Practices & Mantras To Honor Surya

Published

on

Summer Solstice 2021 Image

Every year between June 20 and June 21, the Earth tilts its closest to the Sun, marking the first day of summer and the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Summer solstice 2022 will happen on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at 5:14 a.m. EDT. On the day of the summer solstice, the solar energy increases, as well as the power of rituals, mantras, and meditations performed on this day. This is a great day to celebrate and honor Surya, the Sun.

In this article, I will share with you the meaning behind the summer solstice and the spiritual practices and rituals you can perform on this powerful day!

Summer Solstice In Vedic Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the period from the summer solstice to the winter solstice is called dakshinayana. Thus the summer solstice is the first day of dakshinayana. According to the Puranas, Dakshinayana marks the period when the Gods and Goddesses are in their celestial sleep. This is the time when the Sun begins to trace a southward movement in the Earth’s sky in the northern hemisphere of the planet.

Dakshinayana is significant in the life of anyone who is involved in any kind of spiritual practice. If you perform practices dedicated to honoring Surya, the Sun, on the summer solstice, you can significantly improve your life in different areas.

Summer Solstice 2022

In general, the summer solstice is considered to be a good time for new beginnings. However, this year’s summer solstice is happening under the influence of the strong energies of the retrograde planets. At the time of the summer solstice in 2022, Saturn and Mercury will already be in a retrograde state. Therefore, the energy of the summer solstice 2022 may make us work on our karmic debts and old unfinished business.

The day of the summer solstice is a very powerful period when you can manifest your intentions.

June Solstice 2021 astrology image

If you want to improve your finances, then make donations and get involved in charity acts on the day of the summer solstice. Such acts will contribute to your good karma, remove your karmic debts, and make room in your karma for prosperity and abundance.

If you want to improve your romantic life, then do something pleasant for a man (if you’re a woman) or for a woman (if you are a man). If you’re single, buy a gift for your father (if you are a woman) or your mother (if you are a man), say something nice to a male colleague (if you are a woman) or a female colleague (if you are a man). If you are married but desire to improve the relationship with your spouse, be especially gentle, nice, and kind with him/her; take him/her out for a date, or have a romantic dinner at home together.

If you want to improve your health, then before eating something on the day of the summer solstice, be sure to say this affirmation: “This food nourishes my body and spirit, restores my strength, and heals me.”

Things to Do On Summer Solstice

These simple tips will help you to harmonize the energy of the Sun and get the most out of this powerful day:

  • Get up during the Brahma Muhurta time and greet the Sun by performing Surya Namaskar.
  • Spend time outdoors: have a picnic or just a walk in the park.
  • Decorate the house with summer flowers in yellow-orange-red colors, arrange vases with fruit, candles, etc.
  • It is very beneficial to do gardening on this day, but do not overdo it and take time to relax.
  • Take a dip in the ocean, lake, or river — it will strengthen your connection with nature.
  • Meditate and perform some breathing exercises (pranayama).
  • Set your goals and intentions for the year and write them down in your planner.

Practices, Rituals, and Mantras

Reconnecting With Nature

Reconnecting with Gaia image

As I have already said, on the day of the summer solstice, it is important to feel your unity with nature. For doing this, you can do a barefoot walk, for example. And you may also want to perform the practice that is called “Reconnecting with nature”. It’s best to be performed outdoor somewhere in nature. But if you don’t have the opportunity to practice it someplace in nature, you can perform it in your backyard, patio, or even inside.

This practice will be especially beneficial for those who:
  • have circulatory problems, eating disorders, or joint problems;
  • feel unstable and insecure in your life;
  • lack balance between work and personal life;
  • often experience dizziness;
  • experience fears or phobias.
Instructions:
  • Take a few deep breaths and slow exhalations, close your eyes.
  • Imagine that you are in a cave. Look around and find a way out. Go outside the cave – you are in a beautiful green forest. You can hear the sound of a stream, the rustle of leaves, and the birds singing. Under your feet, you can see stairs leading down into the Earth. Go down these steps, don’t be afraid.
  • As you descend deeper, you can hear the steady heartbeat of the Earth. Adjust your heartbeat to the natural beat. Feel the relaxation, the lightness.
  • You have descended to the very heart of the Earth. Lie down directly on the ground, feel with your back and palms how Nature is happy to meet you, feel how it fills you in with its healing energy and power. Feel the care, support, and protection of Nature.
  • Let the planet feel your love. Be grateful for this invisible care and support.
  • Now stand up, climb the stairs to the cave, take a deep breath, and open your eyes.

Ritual “Reconnecting With The Sun”

  1. Stand facing East. Look in the direction where the reborn Sun rises.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Sun for all the good things in your life and ask for guidance and assistance in the future.
  3. Visualize your future as you would like it to be. Listen to yourself. What do you feel? Immerse yourself in your feelings. Let the sun recharge you and fill you with its energy.

Abundance Meditation

  1. Make yourself comfortable: lie down or sit down in a meditative posture.
  2. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and slow exhalations. As you inhale, imagine how the solar energy of golden color enters your Solar Plexus (Manipura chakra) along with the air.
  3. When you feel the heat in your Solar Plexus, mentally say the words: “I feel the power of sunlight in me. I am one with the energy of the Universal abundance. I attract prosperity and embrace abundance in my life. So it is!”
  4. Feel how the energy of the Sun is circulating inside you and how its heat spreads from Manipura chakra and fills your entire body.
  5. Say your gratitude to the Universe for everything it gives you, for the abundant life, and limitless opportunities. Smile and open your eyes.

Mantras

To harmonize the energy of the Sun on the day of the summer solstice, you can use the Surya mantra. It is best to recite this mantra at dawn, noon, or sunset 2, 9, 27, or 108 times. It’s recommended to light a candle while reciting the mantra, it will symbolize solar energy.

Before reciting the mantra, mentally formulate your intention, which you direct to Surya (this is the name of the Sun in the Vedic tradition). For example, you may say: “I dedicate reciting of this mantra to the materialization of my intention to become successful and prosperous”.

This is one of the most powerful Surya mantras:

Om Hrim Sum Suryaya Namah

The Bottom Line

Use the summer solstice to gather your best friends and get outside if you can. This is the time when we all need to celebrate life and express our gratitude to Mother Earth. Think of the sun as a life force, and use the longest day of the year as an excuse to soak up as much of it as you can.
