Use when needing to be positive, capable, projective, assertive and in control, rather than emotionally driven. Infuses one with solar force, self-determination and self-conﬁdence. Use to project oneself powerfully in the world, to win a job, get a raise or gain a job interview. A great essence for single parents who must be both mother and father to their children. Use in times of crisis to inspire others with enthusiasm and active leadership. Helps one ‘father’ or parent oneself. Use when needing extra strength, physical energy or when faced with additional responsibilities. Use when seeking to take charge and be pro-active rather than passively waiting for events to happen.
