A Solstice Hare

the a reflection of the solstice energy...

If you look for it, Spirit gives us a gift every day, a reminder of God’s love for us and of the blessing of being alive on our beautiful Earth.

It can come in unexpected ways and often when we least expect it, and mine, yesterday, came when a large hare loped down a path in my garden in the early morning and spent some time eating long grass near my kitchen window, unafraid of my presence.  It looked healthy and happy, and it was comforting to know that many of the gentle timeless rhythms of nature continue still despite the threats posed by humanity.  Nature is strong.

Mystically, hares have links to the Moon and to the Divine Feminine, very much a part of the court associated with the Earth Mother.  They symbolise, too, fertility and abundance as they quietly bridge what is past with what is to come, reassuring us that us life will go on, particularly at this time of (in this half of the word) the Summer Solstice.

The Solstice on 21st June is not just about being the longest day and the official start of summer:  it is the time when the Sun is closest to us, and so the power of the Divine Masculine which the Sun represents is at its greatest.  The Light is at its strongest and it is a time for action, activity, growing and harvesting, and bringing nature’s young into the world.  

The hare, feeding and breeding in the warmth of this rich time, is a reflection of the solstice energy but also, in its elusive secrecy, warns us not to forget the power of the other side of the Light: although the hours of darkness are few they carry with them in their concentration an intensity that can be overwhelming.  

While periodically less visible, Mother Moon, always, is as powerful and pervasive as Father Sun.  The Solstice may be a celebration of the power of the Sun, but it brings with it also a thinning of realities and unexpected magic, and for mystics it is as important a time as it is for the celebrants of the strong Sun and third dimensional life – both of which can be dangerous if taken to excess.

If you choose to look for your daily gift from God, you may find at this time of the Solstice that it lies behind the thinned veils of your human reality, in the clouds and the air, in the details of nature resplendent in her bright chakra colours, in the nature spirits peeping from behind plants and water and laughing at your human limitation. 

This is the time when Spirit walks on Earth and is visible, even in a Solstice hare.

  1. A beautiful counterpoint to the constant doom and gloom presented by the media about how 'bad' the world is and a timely reminder that all is not what it seems or appears to be.

    1. Thank you, Linda - and for your reminders to your readers about how to see and write about the world.
