2013 Summer Solstice has arrived
“To Helios (Sun), Fumigation from Frankincense and Manna. Hear, golden Titan, whose eternal eye with matchless sight illumines all the sky…” Orphic Hymn 8 to Helius (trans. Taylor) (Greek hymns C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.)
This year’s Summer Solstice occurs on December 21 at 19:11 SAST.
On behalf of Penton Independent Pagan Media, editors, contributors and bloggers, we wish all our southern hemisphere readers a very blessed Summer Solstice / Alban Heruin (Druidic), Litha (Wiccan). Neither Holly nor Pine nor Mistletoe shall the Midsummer Sun embrace; only the mighty Oak!
To all our northern hemisphere contributors and readers we wish a very merry Winter Solstice and Yule.
