June 21 All day
Today is the longest day of the year. The God is at his peak strength. It is also the midpoint of the year. Light large bonfires after sundown. On this day you will be at the peak of magickal power! Remember that nothing lasts forever. Celebrate abundance, fertility, virility, beauty, and the bounty of our earth. Good time for handfasting, workings for empowerment and consummation.
