Summer Solstice: Midsummer Night Dream and Faires

On Summer Solstice is a very magical time of the season because the Sun and the Galactic Center are joined as one with the Earth.

The Earth tips its hat or tilt to the Galactic Center and the Sun alignment with in Cancer,  and the Sun reaches its highest climb or point on the Earth at the Tropic of Cancer at high 12 noon.

Cancer represents home and mother and things at it highest potential and at its strength light force energy, after the Summer Solstice, the Sun becomes its slow descendant to Hades or Winter. But let’s not think of that.

With the Summer Solstice, not only is the Earth bathed in sunlight and downloading codes but magic is afoot because the veil between this world and the next is very thin. So thin in fact that fairies are the ruling Queen and King.

For this reason, June 24th is International Fairy Day.

William Shakespeare wrote about fairies in  Summers Midnight’s Dream and in his writing there are Queen and King of the fairies.

We are told that fairies are just a part of our imagination but I do not believe that when I have seen fairies during special times such as Summer Solstice when they real themselves to people who believe in them.

Fairies tend to appear in Nature.

Some have said that this is the Tinkerbell effect or is it the old proverbial chicken and egg story. Do we believe before we see or do we just believe to see.

We call them faerie. We don’t believe in them. Our loss. ~Charles de Lint


The image above was taken by myself of the white queen fairy before I began to videotape. Also, I took another image of a black bird that I did not see until I view the photos taken that morning. (where it came from I have no idea)


While participating in a Summer Solstice celebration, I saw a fairy and made a video of the fairy. Was it real or my imagination. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and so is fairy magic. I just hope that she dropped so fairy dust on me when she was passing through.  I call the video “Chasing Faerie”


Happy Summer Solstice. So Mo Be It!
