The Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer and Litha, has been celebrated by various cultures all around the world for millennia. The longest day and the shortest night of the year is a celebration of the sun. In the Northern hemisphere everything is green and growing as we await a fruitful harvest.

The Oak King, the Sun God, is at the apex of his power.  He the God of light, fertility and the harvest.  Born at the Winter Solstice (Yule) he heralds the return of the sun.  His power grows as the year progresses, nourishing crops with warmth and light.

Wishing everyone a joyful and magickal Summer Solstice!

    Happy Summer Solstice, Morgaine. I love the longer days, but almost hate to see us turn the corner and head toward the shorter ones. Beautiful artwork as always.
