Energy: Full but restful energy, protect, strengthen, and prevent. A time of light. Earth tides are turning. Decision-making, taking responsibility for present happenings. Work on personal inconsistencies. Strengthen and reward yourself for your positive traits. This is a good time for taking stock of the year. It’s the mid-way point, so review what you’ve accomplished and what’s left to do.
- During late June and most of July the meadows, or meads, were mowed for hay.
