Summer Solstice

COMING SOON … SUMMER SOLSTICE


DATE: JUNE 21, 2023


SOLSTICE TRANSLATION:

“THE SUN SITTING IN THE SKY”


As the Summer Solstice quickly approaches we are reminded of the cycling of seasons — a time to honour darkness and light.


The SUN ☀️ shift’s her proximity to EARTH 🌍, which causes parts of the world to experience different seasons throughout the year.


Winter and Summer seasons are essential puzzle pieces; each season creates balance and contrast into our lives. Just like Darkness cannot exist without Llight, Winter cannot exist without Summer.


Summer Solstice brings forth the longest days and shortest nights. Our lives overflow with glowing sunlight, radiant energy, and abundance. It’s also referred to as “Litha”, “Midsummer”, or “Alban Hefin”.


Each culture has its unique way of honouring the seasonal changes, and view every season as equals (ie. one season isn’t better than the other).


SUMMER SOLSTICE:

- An embodiment of Masculine and Solar Energy

- A season of doing and accomplishing when your energy is at its peak, making it easier to finish tasks throughout the long, light-filled days.

- Ideas, inspiration, and plants are blooming.

- An overflow of radiance, vitality, and energy to channel into ritualistic summer solstice activities.

Embrace Solstice energies by creating intuitive rituals. The first step in creating rituals is to brainstorm ideas, and write down any ritual ideas that are calling to you.
