The summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, also known as Litha or midsummer, comes around about the 20th or 21st of June. It’s the longest day and the shortest night of the year because the sun rises as high as it can go, so we get more daylight. From here on in, the days will be getting shorter and the nights longer until the winter solstice/Yule, when things turn around again. This is a joyful festival to celebrate growth and abundance, energy, and blessings of the sun.

Beltane or May Day is on May 1 in the Northern Hemisphere and on November 1 in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s traditionally the end of winter and the beginning of summer, about midway between Ostara or the spring equinox and summer solstice in June. This is a joyful time, a time for fun and celebrating the promise of abundance. However, the harvest is still months away. Just as we still have a lot of work to do in our gardens, there’s still work to do on our goals.
