Midsummer Celebration ღ (Summer Solstice) At this time the sun is shining the longest. that’s when you see the fairy’s dancing in the mist, with flowers in their hair singing songs about love and growth. We celebrate Sunna the Sun, returned to shine her light over us, over the earth. She is the goddess "Asynja" that drove the sun-wagon over the sky. She is sending the healing light of courage and self-love over us. She helps us to remember to take our place in the universe and that we all have a place here and now & In the Old Norse tradition we celebrated the female and male energy, this energy was represented by Freja and Frej, goddess and god. We all have this in us it’s all about Love, growth, life and Balance! We dress the midsummer pole with flowers and dancing around it to celebrate life!! The pole is not only a phallus symbol it is also representing the womb and this two are symbols for male and female energy! Let the power of this fill you with self-love, love to others, love to the universe!
We would love to see your free spirit and smile in the forest this year!
