Gypsy Souls Summer Solstice

We’re barreling into summer, and the world is flashing by outside our windows. The summer solstice has come and gone taking with it the longest day of the year. The word “solstice” comes from the Latin words sol sistere ~ “sun stand still.”

Gardens are blooming, crops are ripening, and the earth has warmed up so that we can spend more time outside, more time getting in touch with ourselves and with nature. The solstice is celebrated all over the world, and has been throughout history. Wiccans celebrate Midsummer by lighting bonfires, and honouring the fertility of the earth. In Sweden, maypole dancing is an essential summer solstice tradition. In New York, yogis gather in Times Square to salute the sun all day long.

With the end of the strawberry solstice, the days have already begun to shorten ~ we know how important it is to stop & soak up that sun in our beautiful surroundings. . .
