Also found some great quotes on the meaning of the summer solstice:-
And that is what is so remarkable about the seasons, the sacred days, the wheel of time that moves beyond and around us ~ they move within us, as well.
Both the feminine and masculine aspects of the Solstice represent a time of newness, nourishment and sustenance, a movement from dark to light, rebirth, and healing. It is a time to turn attention toward inner balance – between our dark and light sides – as well as those forces in the world around us. An occasion of great change, Midsummer is a time to contemplate healing, nurturing and nourishing of ourselves and the earth.
