Summer Solstice: Tips to receive the change of seasons in the best way.
"Live every season of the year as it passes, breathe the air, taste the fruit and resign yourself to the influences of each season."
Henry David Thoreau
The summer solstice, also known as the summer solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles reaches its greatest inclination towards the Sun. It occurs between June 20 and 22 in the northern hemisphere, and between December 20 and 23 in the southern hemisphere
The summer solstice day is the longest of the year, and since prehistory it has been a significant moment for many cultures, a reason for festivals and rituals throughout the world.
Either way, you don't need to hold a pagan festival to celebrate this change of seasons in a special way. Many consider this a good time to establish a deep connection with their feelings, the elements and the Sun Father of all life . And it is an invitation to do less and be more.
