I would love to be at Stone Henge on the morning of the Summer Solstice. Can't you just imagine the magickal feel that must envelope everyone as the sun dawns over the horizon?
Summer Solstice (or Litha) is the longest day of year, when Spring fades into Summer. Some believe that the portal between the world of the Fae and our realm thins and opens at the twilight of this day.
Summer Solstice is considered a time of great magickal power. Spells dealing with love, healing and prosperity are generally quite effective at this time. Many rituals are performed at noon, when the sun is at it's height of power.
