Ahhhhh, Solstice yesterday was so lovely! It was a much needed, energizing day filled with sun, warmth, friends, fire, fairy wands, bubbles, sparklers, food, music, and wonderful energy. I absolutely love to walk into my backyard and see it filled with people I love, children, talking, and laughing. It makes my soul so happy. And after the challenges I've been facing, it was really so needed. A gathering like this is always so worth all the work!
From a Witchvox article: "It is through this season that we can see the beauty of life, the intensity of being, the rapture of passion, the exhilaration of awareness, possibilities of creation and the surprising tenderness of love. For it is passion and love that have driven humankind to realize some of its greatest treasures and its most extreme violations. It is only through awareness and conscious action that passion can bring us to the zenith of existence. This is the time to experience our passions and the force within, to be conscious of how we use them and the gifts they can bring and experience our own true power."
Bright Blessings to you and yours!!

I've decided to plan a Summer Solstice celebration. I think we'll have a dinner feast and then a bonfire, complete with throwing select herbs into the fire as is traditional on the Summer Solstice. I need to celebrate the beauty of life and the love that is present. I need to be surrounded by friends and loved ones. This has been such a difficult period for me, I'm feeling like I need some love and laughter and to allow myself to mark this new beginning with a celebration of all that I have and will become. It's nice to have something to look forward to!
