“On this June day the buds in my garden are almost as enchanting as the open flowers. Things in bud bring, in the heat of a June noontide, the recollection of the loveliest days of the year – those days of May when all is suggested, nothing yet fulfilled.” ~ Francis King
June is here and summer seems to be steadily extending its enchantment into all aspects of our world. These days are the longest of the year and will culminate in the Summer Solstice. How are you filling these magical days of warmth and laughter?
Summer Solstice is the longest day and shortest night of the year and is occurring June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere this year. Goddess is all light and fire now.
Throughout summer, Goddess continues to ripen, to reveal Herself magnificently in the harvests of summer. This is Her manifestation, Her physical promise of nourishment for us during the fallow season. The summer heat seeps into our bones and kindles our souls. The bees sing mantras of the Great Mother and fertility. We play on the shores of the Mother of Oceans, Rivers and Lakes and bathe ourselves in Her sacred waters.
This is a busy Goddess calendar month and lots of holy days for those who would like to follow a Goddess year. Rhythms of the Goddess Summer is also available now as an online prompt and practice course for syncing further with the myth and magick of Goddess in this season.
