The summer solstice is also known as Midsummer. This sabbath is to celebrate the sun and the longest day of the year. This is a day to celebrate and surround yourself with symbols of the sun. Lets celebrate and honor our dependence on the Sun but also honor the spiritual fire within each and every one of us. A great way to celebrate as the sun goes down is a great summer bonfire! Or invite friend over for a summer solstice and create sun mandalas or sun wheels which can be made with gorgeous flowers from the garden all while enjoying summer day!
Summer Solstice Affirmation to the Sun
The sun is high above us
shining down upon the land and sea,
making things grow and bloom.
Great and powerful sun,
we honor you this day
and thank you for your gifts.
Ra, Helios, Sol Invictus, Aten, Svarog,
you are known by many names.
You are the light over the crops,
the heat that warms the earth,
the hope that springs eternal,
the bringer of life.
We welcome you, and we honor you this day,
celebrating your light,
as we begin our journey once more
into the darkness.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
