SUMMER SOLSTICE

I hail the sun!

Rising from darkness,

up into Day.


At summer solstice the sun hits the northern hemisphere with more power than the rest of the year. The sun is at its highest. The days are at it longest.
North of the polar circle it is midnight sun.

We celebrate
We are grateful and salute the sun with its life giving warmth.
Summer solstice is a tribute to the wheel of time. To the sun, ur strongest life-giving force. On this day we light bon fires in honor of the sun. It is an ancient pagan custom, originally a sacred act.

Sun and fire.

Fire and sun.

Light and warmth.

Life.

In your light, fields shall grow.

In your darkness, fields shall die.
