The longest day of the year- marking the height of Summer.

The Summer Solstice is the astronomical event occurring once a year for the Northern Hemisphere when the earths pole has its maximum tilt towards the sun. Resulting in the sun reaching its highest position in the sky with the longest period of daylight.

The Summer Solstice on June 21st 2021, signals a positive ritualistic time of abundance, worth carrying through the summer months.

Historically, Summer Solstice has been a significant time of year in many ancient cultures, and is marked by festivals and rituals throughout the world. Major monuments such as Stonehenge, for example, were built to follow the suns yearly progress and has been a meeting place for celebrants subsequently.

In recent years, Summer Solstice continues to embrace a special place of celebration in many cultures with people all around the world rejoicing with dance, music and picnics within nature.
