Happy Happy Happy Midsummer / Litha / Summer Solstice!
The summer solstice occurs exactly when the axial tilt of a planet’s semi-axis in a given hemisphere is most inclined towards the star that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt to our star, the Sun, during a solstice is 23° 26’. This happens twice each year, at which times the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the North or South Pole, respectively. - Thanks, Wikipedia!
For thousands & thousands of years, peoples all over the world have welcomed this longest day of light with parties & rituals celebrating light, fire, & warmth, & the natural power that each of those things brings to our lives.
Hope your day is filled with love, light, watermelon, lots of water, & plenty of salt (so you don’t get crabby :)
O, MY MY!
