      >1. SUMMARY
      >
      >The June Solstice will occur on the 21st at 01.48 Universal Time, when the
      >Sun is farthest north of the equator. In the northern hemisphere the June
      >Solstice is the time of maximum light, while in the southern hemisphere it
      >is the time when the Sun is reborn after the longest night. Since ancient
      >times, humanity has marked out the Solstices and Equinoxes as important
      >times to attune to the Earth's relationship with the Sun, and today they
      >are
      >used for linking up globally in meditation. Chief Arvol Looking Horse has
      >asked that June 21 be recognised as "World Peace Prayer Day".
      >
      >Please hold in your heart and mind a vision in which the integrity and
      >sacredness of Nature and her cycles are honoured by all. See the whole
      >Earth
      >as healthy and vibrant with life, and experience the healing of all
      >relations as we awaken globally to the sacredness of all Life and to our
      >underlying unity with All That Is.

      >The Solstice and Equinox points form the four gates or four directions of
      >the celestial medicine wheel. The Sun illuminates and activates these gates
      >as it appears to journey through the sky from the Earth's perspective. In
      >reality, it is the Earth's journey through the sky as it orbits the Sun
      >that
      >creates the seasonal cycles. The ancient ones had an active and conscious
      >relationship with the sky mysteries, creating standing stone circles and
      >other monuments to assist in tracking these yearly cycles and capturing or
      >maximizing the incoming energies activated during these seasonal shifts as
      >different parts of the sky were being engaged. Working with the Solstice
      >and
      >Equinoxes as well as the cross-quarter dates (the half-way point between
      >each Solstice and Equinox) helps us to remember these mysteries and to
      >develop our own relationship with the seasonal cycles of Earth and Sky.

      >Among the countless Summer Solstice celebrations and ceremonies:
      >
      >The Sonnenwende ("Sun's turning") of the Norse calendar, so named because
      >at
      >this point in the year, the Sun reaches its farthest northern sunset point
      >on the horizon, and must now begin moving south, and bringing with it the
      >hotter, more rapid movement of Summer, and everything else that that the
      >South implies. The season of husbandry begins now in bonfires that
      >mark this day as the one when the Sun's light stays longest in the Sky.
      >
      >In northern Russia, especially in St. Petersburg, this day begins the White
      >Nights, which last for the next ten days. In this and other fire festivals
      >that can get more raucous than most, fireworks and all, many people love
      >the
      >days of the Long Light because this is the best time to burn the chaff and
      >the worry of the year gone by, and get ready to work the field under the
      >waxing Sun, and care for children.
      >
      >In the Celtic calendar, this day is called Litha, and honors the water
      >goddess. Many European peoples also honored the Green Man, leafy symbol of
      >nature's resurgence, counterpart to the Egyptian Osiris.
      >
      >Taoist festival honoring the Heavenly Emperor Shang-Ti and celebrating the
      >active presence of the Tao in all things. This is the time when the
      >masculine Yang force is at its peak, and initiates the season of fire,
      >south
      >and Summer.
      >
      >In the Islamic lunar calendar, first day of the New Year.
      >
      >In many ancient calendars, this is one of the year's best times for
      >honoring
      >Wise Women. In the Greco-Roman calendar, this was the Day of All Heras
      >(Roman counterpart Juno, for whom this month is named), when people gather
      >to listen to women who have achieved spiritual Union with the Great
      >Goddess.
      >In ancient Britain this was the Day of Cerridwen, celebrating all Wise
      >Women.

      >energies of the Solar cycle, the Solstices and Equinoxes are now recognised
      >as important times to link up in meditation for the upliftment of our
      >world.
      >The exact time of the Solstice, when the Sun enters Cancer, is 1.48am GMT.
      >This is the main global linkup time.
      >
      >This Solstice, the Sun will be closely conjunct Venus and Mars in Cancer,
      >and all three will be aligning to Neptune, the planet of Spirit. This will
      >encourage us to nurture the divine self-realisation of all things through
      >our relationships. It highlights the need to find inner security through
      >our connection with Spirit, so that our response to other people and things
      >comes from the heart, rather than from the insecure ego. The Moon, which
      >rules Cancer, will conjunct Uranus in Aquarius, indicating a need to awaken
      >to our collective family, and to break free of attachments based upon
      >insecurity and possessiveness.
      >
      >Many people now gather at sacred sites across the world on the Solstices
      >and
      >Equinoxes to connect more strongly with the Earth and to enhance the effect
      >of planetary healing. In the UK we will gather in Stonehenge at 2.15am for
      >a
      >meditation to mark the exact time of the Solstice at 2.48am. For details of
