Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where I live, spans June 20th to 23rd.
I like to use the whole three days for celebrating as the Summer Solstice is bursting with promise and hope for the future, and is intensely powerful.
June 21st marks the longest day and the shortest night in the solar year and brings completion to the dreams we invoked on the Winter Solstice.
Nothing is impossible now. All that awaits the birth of our future ventures is focused intention. What we’ve been holding close to your heart for the past six months is aching to be released into the here and now.

The word solstice means the standing of the sun and it is also time for us to stop, be still, listen to our inner voice, remember past promises to ourselves and make preparations for the road ahead.
Just as at the Winter Solstice, everything began its journey outward towards manifestation.
Summer Solstice begins the process of everything turning inward once more.
Quite often we are not aware of what is truly happening energetically after Midsummer’s Eve because we are trained to think of everything expanding well into September. This quirk of the calendar and summer activities blinds us to the fact that we now we begin the journey back to our dark side.
At Summer Solstice, we are at our brightest, most filled with the magic of the Sun, most ripe, the soil of our soul most ready for manifesting.
