Summer Solstice Significance
The two moments during the year when the path of the Sun in the sky is farthest north in the Northern Hemisphere on June 20, 2016.
At the summer solstice, the Sun travels the longest path through the sky, and that day therefore has the most daylight.
It is a time of celebrating the fullness of life and of taking the time to raise our energy to regenerate abundance and manifest our dreams.
Well through doing something symbolic to honor this time. In doing so we are not merely reviving something of the past but rather tapping into something that is eternal. We need not only honor our dependence on the physical Sun but also honor the spiritual fire within each and every one of us. Now that is reason to celebrate and be grateful!
Celebrate the outer and inner FIRE! Playing drums and dance with your loved ones. If you want to get more ritualistic, gather some fresh local herbs and throw them into the fire with your deepest wishes!
For a more personal celebration, people make a little ALTAR OF LIGHT and gratitude by lighting a candle (or few) and decorating it with summer flowers, and tangerines. If you leave the tangerines outside in the sun, they will soak up the sun’s energy and you can eat them later 😉 In addition, it can stick a candle into an orange and make beautiful candleholder.
In addition, it is welcoming a SUN WHEEL by creating a large wreath with flowers and moss. Then get some strips of paper and have your friends write a wish on it and wrap it or tie it with string to the wreath. Pass it around casually through the evening. Some can take turns dancing with it, holding it and then at the end of the evening throw it into a fire!
We are inviting You, to our event, with a great fire, loud music and high jumping!
