Summer Solstice June 21, 2013 Spells & Rituals

Midsummer/Summer Solstice-June 21

Midsummer or the summer solstice marks the longest day of the year. Now, the Holly King vanquishes the Oak King and we begin our long descent toward the darkness of winter. We need to make a decision and a commitment to embrace change before the lazy days of summer slow us down and weaken our willpower.
