The Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere also marks the Winter Solstice in the Southern hemisphere. A Solstice is either the longest or the shortest day of the year, depending on where you live. Like winter solstice, summer solstice is the transition phase of yin and yang. When yang reaches its ultimate, the yin will ascend; this is the philosophy of yin & yang.
Summer Solstice (夏至) is the most yang day with the longest hour of the daylight in the year. Each year the summer solstice occurs around 21st or 22nd June in the Northern hemisphere. This year, the Summer Solstice falls on 21 June 2018, 18:07 Hour.
Many people thought that summer solstice is the beginning of summer but in reality it is the mid-point of summer. On this day and the days around it are days with excessive strong yang energy.
During this period, it’s good to open up windows, walk ways, balcony and doors to allow the sun ray to penetrate the house especially if you have a basement or dark corner in the house.
The first few moment of sunlight of the day of Summer Solstice can ward off troublemakers. Hence, one can enjoy a smoother path with lesser hindrance. However, avoid exposing yourself to too much sunlight like sun tanning around this period.
This time of the year is an ideal time to de-clutter and cleanse your home or office to make room for new energy. To increase the effectiveness of removing negative energy, use pomelo leaf or pomegranate leaf for wiping or sweeping.
