The summer solstice, which falls on June 21 this year, is a fancy term for the first day of summer.
It marks the point when the sun is at its highest peak in the sky, and for those in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s also the longest day of the year.
But the summer solstice is more than a seasonal shift — it also heralds changes and new beginnings. Based on the cosmic forecast, the spiritual meaning of the summer solstice is about finding balance in your life and mustering up the courage to be the boldest version of yourself.
Ancient Celtic, Greek, and Roman cultures have observed midsummer for different reasons, from religious ceremonies to timing crop cycles.
These spiritual meanings are the reasons why so many cultures dedicated rituals and festivals to the summer solstice. Here are some of the reasons people are celebrating:
- It's a celebration of the sun.
- It's a time of new beginnings.
- It's a time to reflect.
- It's the spiritual high point of the year.
