Today 06/21 is the Summer Solstice! The longest day and shortest night of the year, this day is the perfect time to honor the ever-turning wheel of the seasons with gratitude and celebration! This Solstice marks the day that the sun is at its highest point over the Equator, so the farthest north. Energetically, many people witness this as a kind of opening up of a celestial portal for positive potential.
Many ancient cultures who believed that the solstice was spiritually significant (such as the Mayans, Druids, and Egyptians) built temples or structures that captured the divine moment of alignment, and there they would participate in sacred ceremonies. An example of this is that at Stonehenge on the solstice, the sun rises just over the structure’s Heel Stone and hits the Altar Stone dead center. The head of the Sphinx in Egypt is also crowned by the sun of the summer solstice.
Today is a wonderful day to set intentions for transformation and expansion, and to spend as much time as you can outdoors! We wish you love, light, and a most Happy Solstice, however you choose to spend it! <3
