Where I live, Summer is the season when nature is at its most lush, green and colourful. Many flowers are in bloom and fruits and vegetables start to ripen. It’s all thanks to the increase in sunshine and warm weather. Here in the UK, we see Sunflowers, Roses, Lavender and Honeysuckle flowers. Our gardens are full of bees, birds and insects.
Summer Solstice, Holidays & Festivals
The Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer is when the Earth has one of its poles at maximum tilt towards the Sun. The Sun now reaches the highest part of the sky and the days are at the longest. Today and around the world, we now see this day more as the start of the Summer season.
There are a few holidays and festivals around this time of year, especially in the northern hemisphere. Litha, Midsummer, Dragonboat Festival, Jani and Lughnasadh to name only a few. Many of these festivals date back thousands of years.
The Summer Energy Shift
The Summer Solstice could be seen as one of four energetic gateways or portals of the year. It marks a time of maximum solar energy and light. Common festive themes at this time are the harvest, abundance, fertility, the Sun and the divine masculine.
Around this time you should feel like your energy levels are high. Sunlight and nature make people feel more positive. The warm weather allows you to have plenty of time outside, sunshine and fresh air. Spending time with family, travelling or going on holiday (vacation) are popular activities at this time.
You should feel connected to nature now. It’s all about enjoying the abundance of nature, activity and having greater freedom. The plans that you made earlier in the year may be coming to fruition. Summer is also a good time for personal growth.

This green variety of Aventurine almost looks like luscious green fruit. Sometimes it has speckles of darker green inside it that look like tiny seeds. Green Aventurine is a popular stone for abundance and prosperity in all its forms.
The form of a crystal cluster can be used to represent the element of fire. The mix of crystals in a group also holds strong energy of community. Crystal Clusters are excellent crystals for working with groups, family and community. Alternatively, you could use a crystal flame for fire energy.
It wouldn’t be a Summer solar themed selection without Citrine. This golden form of Quartz is brimming with solar energy. Work with Citrine to develop a mindset that is needed for success. Citrine draws prosperity and helps you create wealth over time.
This intense green form of gem-quality clear Olivine is really beautiful. Its colour is like Sun-ripened extra virgin olive oil. Most of the crystals on the market are very small, you do not need anything big. Peridot is another crystal for prosperity and manifesting abundance in your life.
Amber is a gemstone that is formed from the fossilised resin of trees from millions of years ago. It can be clear to opaque with most stones being golden yellow like honey. Amber looks like crystalised sunlight and has this energy inside it. Work with Amber to connect with nature and the Sun.
This is a geometric shape that is carved into a tower with four sides tapering to a pyramid termination at the top. Obelisks can be found throughout the world but the earliest ones were made in Ancient Egypt. They were sacred to the Sun God Ra. Crystal Obelisks anchor solar energy and divine masculine power.
Although red rubies exist most of them especially non-gem quality stones are more of a warm purple colour. Many red Rubies are actually heat-treated anyway. For crystal healing purposes you do not need a clear crystal and these are surprisingly affordable tumbled stones. Ruby has long been associated with the Sun in Vedic Astrology, it is a good stone for energy and empowerment.
This stone is golden with brown and black bands that resemble tiger stripes. Tiger’s Eye is another solar stone and associated with the zodiac sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun in astrology. Its confidence-boosting energy is ideal for venturing out more and owning your power.
