The Magic of the Summer Solstice

From Huffington Post: Stunning Photos From Around the World Show the Power of the Summer Solstice:

If you peered up into the sky at any point on Monday, you likely would have seen a big, beautiful full moon shining down at you. The June full moon, nicknamed the “Strawberry Moon” by indigenous American tribes, fell on the summer solstice this year — the first time the two coincided since the 1967 Summer of Love.

Summer solstice is the longest day of the year, and it’s one of celebration and reverence for many around the world, including some Pagans, Druids, Incans, and spiritual seekers. Celebrations typically honor the power of the sun, but this year, the full moon also showed off its glory by lighting the sky long into the night.
