When people were more connected to the land and in tune with the Earth, it marked the beginning of the Summer season, but now for some reason, here in Australia we begin Summer on the 1st of December. I realise that the equinox and the solstice were marked by pagan ceremonies, but I am unsure of their origin and why we changed the dates of the seasons.
If anyone knows why, please leave a comment. I am not up for a round of research on Google tonight.
Solstice blessings to you and yours.
