Summer Solstice 2

Well, this evening when I stepped outside to light a fire in homage to the was raining.  Actually starting to storm...thunder, etc..... So, I created a small altar in honor of this significant day.  The fire of course is symbolic of protection and literally warmth and light as we begin our journey into the darkness of winter.  The Holly King has won the battle against the Oak he always does.  And now begins the darkening of the days...... I put some silk autumn leaves on the altar as a symbol that the next season - the Autumnal Equinox - is headed our way......

The angel in the first picture represents divine and unseen protection...the angels, faeries, elves, elementals.....
Light from the to symbolize the lushness and growth during this part of the year.

Of course the autumn flowers/leaves remind me of the ever-turning wheel of the year...that before I know it, the cool evenings and crisp days of Autumn will be here.
