Today Sunday, June 20th is the Summer Solstice. To make this day even more magikal, Cancer Season begins as well. The Summer Solstice will be a very auspicious day for balance, magic and rebirth and a powerful time to rethink our goals as we harness the power of the Sun.
The Summer Solstice signifies the ending of the flowering season (Spring) as the Sun reaches its highest peak in the Northern Hemisphere. With the beginning of Summer, we enter a time of growth, maturity and the forthcoming Harvest Season. Like the days before the Full Moon, this is a perfect time to take those extra steps to get us closer to our goals and fill our hearts with gratitude for the tangible and spiritual abundance we have in our lives. It’s also an ideal time to clearly set our intentions for the next cycle to come. Once daylight reaches its peak on June 20th, we’ll start moving towards harvest season as the fruits of our efforts ripen and the days start shortening.
Celebrate the Summer Solstice or Litha (the Celtic word for light) with rituals to honor the Sun and your inner light! Let us honor our journey, the gifts, abundance and blessings we’ve received - light fires and candles, sing songs, place flowers on tables and decorate altars in honor of the sun and set intentions once again for the abundance of this year’s harvest.
Create a Summer Solstice altar with bright flowers, seasonal fruits and vegetables, candles to symbolize the light of the sun, statues or photos of deities that go with the season or benefit your current spiritual work. On the Kate’s Magik Summer Solstice altar, you can see offerings of prickly pear fruits, strawberries, flowers, candles, crystals, a drum, Ganesh the remover of obstacles, Bastet, Ra the sun god, Sekhmet, Isis and La Virgen de Guadalupe or Mother Mary.

Get outside and garden, take a hike, go for a walk, sit by a body of water, share a picnic outdoors with your loved ones, journal in the sunshine, sing, dance or make music, meditate outside or read a book in your favorite outdoor spot. Whatever you do, express your gratitude for the Sun!
