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 Winter Solstice is here!

The Solstice arrives between the 21st and 22nd June every and is the day with the shortest period of Winter sunlight for the Southern Hemisphere and the day with the longest period of Summer sunlight for the Northern Hemisphere.

Celtic and Pagan in origin, the Winter Solstice is also known as “Yule” or “mid-winter” and has been celebrated for centuries as a rebirth of the sun.

It was revered as a catalyst of great resilience to endure the dark, cold days before the sun's radiance returned once again.

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.

Many cultures celebrate various combinations of the winter and summer Solstices

Many cultures celebrate various combinations of the winter and summer solstices leading to various holidays arising around these events.

The Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station celebrates every year on June 21 a midwinter party, to celebrate that the Sun is at its lowest point and coming back.

Traditionally it is a day all about Light

Solstices are the perfect time to honour your light within as well as all forms of connection, especially to our connection to our Teams of Light on the other side - God energy, your spirit guides and your loved ones who have crossed to the other side, pets included

Enjoy celebrating your very own Winter (or Summer) Solstice this year!
