Summer Solstice falls on June 21 this year, which is the shortest day of the year. When you think about it, it’s about as close to a zero as you’ll probably get. It’s the perfect time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily living, and enjoy relaxing and spending time with loved ones. It’s also what we call a time of celebration for the sun, as the days grow longer and warmer.
The day the Northern Hemisphere celebrates the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year. The day is named after the Latin word for Sun, sol, and means that the Sun is at its lowest in the sky at this point in the year. It is celebrated as the last day of the astrological sign of Capricorn (known as the goat). The time of the solstice is determined by the length of the day at the poles. All stars will be directly overhead on this day at the poles and so it takes a little longer for the Sun to get to the same place in the sky as it does for the Earth.
To celebrate the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, astrologers are paying homage to the sun god, Sol, by sharing the stories of those who celebrated the longest day of the year, often with a big feast or party.
