“Summertime is always the best of what might be” – Charles Bowden
Summer is the most Yang (active, open) time of the year. The energy of the season is joy and expansion, so you’ll naturally feel more outgoing and energised. In Chinese Medicine, Summer is associated with the Fire element and the Heart and Small Intestine channels. Fire:

Metaphysically, the shoulders represent responsibility and how well you do (or don’t) manage them. Do your responsibilities feel like a burden? Do you feel weighed down by chores and jobs? Do you take on inappropriate responsibility for others’ needs or emotions? Constantly tight shoulders can indicate you’re not taking enough time for you and your self growth.
Balance is the key to thriving this season. You’ll naturally feel more energised and social at this time of year, but be conscious of not pushing to the point of burn out. Ask yourself:
Throughout Summer, make it your intention to maintain your self-care and balance activity with reflection time.
