Date of 2020 Summer Solstice 

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice of 2020 takes place on June 20, 2020.

In the Southern Hemisphere, it happens on December 21, 2020.

Depending on what part of the world you live, you can find out exactly what time the Summer Solstice begins in your city.

The Definition of Summer Solstice

The Summer Solstice is the first day of the summer season.

There are two points in a year that the sun travels the longest path in the sky, and therefore those days have the most sunlight.  

There are only two solstices per year. One happens in June and the other in December. One is called a Summer Solstice and the other is Winter Solstice.

People on the opposite hemispheres of Earth celebrate opposite Solstices. Those living in the Northern Hemisphere have Summer Solstice in June and Winter Solstice in December. Those living in the Southern Hemisphere have Summer Solstice in December and Winter Solstice in June.

A more detailed scientific explanation can be found HERE.

The Metaphysical Meaning of Summer Solstice

Metaphysically, Summer Solstice is your time to shine. It is the season where you are meant to enjoy the fruits of the Earth. After a toiling winter and a sprouting spring, the results of your hard work are in full effect on Summer Solstice. 

Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate life- your own life and that of everything around you. While we take the time to honor Mother Earth, we also must stop and honor ourselves. That is why Summer Solstice kicks off the season of vacations, activities, and festivals. The world comes alive.

The Sun is traditionally associated with masculine male energy. It brings out your inner power, strength, happiness, and optimistic nature. If you have been consumed by dark thoughts or depression, it is a chance to reset. The Summer Solstice is about regeneration, self-care, and self-reflection.

Crystals for Summer Solstice

For Summer Solstice, you need crystals that celebrate solar power. The collection of stones called Sun Crystals include Sunstone, Amber, Citrine, Golden Calcite, Yellow Jasper, and Golden Quartz.

These Sun Crystals resonate with the power of Apollo, channeling his sunrays down to activate your inner chi. They are bright like the sun, boasting tones of yellow, orange, and red. 

Sun crystals energize your lower chakras. They celebrate your physical existence here on Earth, allowing you to indulge in the fruits of the planet.

Sun crystals protect you by blasting off dark thoughts and negative energies. They are so vibrant that when you hold and use Sun Crystals, you automatically feel better and your mood transforms to one of optimism.

Summer Solstice Traditions

Summer Solstice has been celebrated for centuries all around the world. Communities gather for rituals that will ignite a safe and fruitful summer. Gatherings of Pagans and those of other beliefs are common on this special day.

Here are a few Summer Solstice Traditions:

Bonfires and Burning Witches

Fire is present in almost all sun celebrations, as it is believed to repel evil spirits. In European countries like Denmark, Croatia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, and Spain, a witch figurine made of cloth or straw is burned in the bonfire. This sends a signal for witches and bad forces to stay away.

Dancing with Herbs

In Sweden, Norway, and Romania you may find people dancing through the Summer Solstice festival. They collect herb that is believed to increase the power of fertility. These dances and herbal cures are meant to stimulate love and fertility for the Summer season.

Stepping into the Sea

In Japan, Summer Solstice is a time to purify your body and soul. The "Geshisai" ritual is an event held at the Futami Okitami Shrine where hundreds of people dressed in white step into the sea and stand between two sacred rocks (male and female). 

International Yoga

In countries like India, people may participate in yoga for the Summer Solstice, which coincides with international yoga day. Yoga helps you discipline the body and mind connection, and can be done alone or in masses.
