The Longest Day: Celebrating the Summer Solsticeis the most talked about topic in tweeter today. I'm just getting my share to talk about it here. Are you familiar with it? To be honest I don't know much about this celebration since the month of June in Philippines is a rainy season. But I was just fascinated at how the people in Britain gathered around the mystical Stonehenge while waiting in excitement to catch a glimpse of sunrise as it rises above the ancient stone circle.
June 21 marks the start of summer and day time hours is at the maximum in the Northern Hemisphere. The word Solstice comes from two latin words: "sol" which means sun, and "sistere" which means to cause to stand still. This astronomical event is associated with the 'Honey' and 'Mead Moon', and is now often referred to as 'Midsummer'.
In our busy internet lives, we seldom notice or pay attention to the movement of the sun. It reminds me that in the olden days, old folks' lives were governed by the sun and the moon that bring practical and mystical importance.
Let's try cast our spell and wishes today. This cyclical rhythm on our natural wonder brings power, energy, new life and new hope!
