Merry Midsummer

Merry Midsummer!
Midsummer Eve by Edward Robert 
Happy Faery Day everyone!

Midsummer, also known as the Summer Solstice is 
a special day for faeries. 
Some even know the day to be called Feast of the Faeries. 

Today marks the longest day of the year, 
the height of the sun's power, 
and the beginning of the waning half of the year. 

The Goddess manifests as Mother Earth and 
the God as the Sun King.

What to do on Midsummer?
  • Keep a Sacred Fire burning throughout the day/night.
  • Stay up all night on Solstice Eve and welcome the rising Sun at dawn.
  • Make a pledge to Mother Earth of something that you will do to improve the environment and then begin carrying it out.
  • Have a magical gift exchange with friends.
  • Burn your Yule wreath in a Summer Solstice bonfire.
  • Exchange songs, chants, and stories with others.
  • Let yourself go with ecstatic dancing to drums around a blazing bonfire.

Midsummer Affirmation
I am enchanted pleasure. I am joy and delight. 
I am the dance of freedom and the song of summer's height. 
I see with my soul into other worlds, 
and I join in the feast of the Sidhe. 
I am at one with my world, and at peace. 
Blessed Be.
