The Summer Solstice, the High Holy Day of the Druids and of modern pagans, arrives tomorrow afternoon, June 21st, at precisely 2:06 p.m. E.D.T. Ah, to be at Stonehenge!
Tomorrow at 2:06 p.m. E.D.T., the goddesses will appreciate sacrifice, particularly growing things in bloom and especially aromatic herbs like tansy, artemesia, alchemilla, lavender.
The Summer Solstice, when tilt is everything, when the sun appears to stand still, and above the Arctic Circle they experience 24 hours of daylight ... technically, the beginning of Summer for us but also the herald of the sun's inevitable decline toward Winter, because after tomorrow we lose daylight gradually every day.
Smoke 'em while you got 'em.
