Celebrate your Summer & Winter Solstices
Solstices have a highly auspicious spiritual aspect … a faucet of Divine love and good will are opened for all of us.
'SOL' means SUN plus 'SISTERE' which means TO STAND … this is exactly what happens in the sky – the sun is at its northern most point from the equator at Summer Solstice and mid-Winter in the North.
The summer solstice (or festival solstice), also known as midsummer, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere (Northern and Southern).
For that hemisphere, the summer solstice is when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky and is the day with the longest period of daylight.
The summer solstice occurs during the hemisphere's summer
This is the June solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the December solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs sometime between June 20 and June 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 in the Southern Hemisphere.
The same dates in the opposite hemisphere are referred to as the winter solstice.
A significant time for centuries ...
Since prehistory, the summer solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, and has been marked by festivals and rituals. Traditionally, in many temperate regions (especially Europe), the summer solstice is seen as the middle of summer and referred to as "midsummer". Today, however, in some countries and calendars it is seen as the beginning of summer
