Enjoy the longest daylight of the year. For the days begin to shorten after today. The glorious dark will return.
Build a bonfire tonight. The most important hallmark of Celebrating the Summer Solstice is
leaping over the bonfire during Midsummer’s eve, which rids one from
“everything unnecessary.” Summer Solstice is associated with the Element
of Fire which bears both constructive and destructive properties.
Jumping over the flames is an ancient ritual which was interestingly “christianised”
too. But leaping over the bonfire won't just help us get rid of
“everything unnecessary”. Couples leap over the sacred fire holding
hands, so that the magical energy of the flames binds them together in
love and happiness.
I am going to jump my Polish ass back and forth over my bonfire tonight hoping to get rid of unnecessary things, aka Trump. A bit of a burnt rump is worth it. And BTW Trump..."tender age shelters"? Really? If that doesn't sound like something right out of the Nazi playbook I don't know what does. I'm betting Miller came up with that name.
What will you do to celebrate the turning of the wheel towards Autumn?
The surest sign of Litha? The Oakleaf Hydrangeas color change begins. Nature is almost always right on time!
