Summer Solstice Rite
June 23, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
We will be honoring the God Taranis, Lord of Thunder and Storms, to ask for a forest-fire free summer. And we will honor the Goddess Sulis, Lady of the Sun and heated waters of the Earth.
We will also give everyone the opportunity to write prayers and requests for the Gods to be placed in the Wicker Man. The Man will be burned in the rite, sending our prayers and entreaties up into the heavens.
Appropriate offerings for both Taranis and Sulis include small images of wheels and solar chariots, alcoholic drinks (such as whiskey, wine, beer, mead, or cider), and food. Sulis may also appreciate flowers from your garden. Offerings of song, dance, or poetry that relate to our God and Goddess are always welcome.
As usual for this Solstice, we will be holding the potluck first, before the ritual. Potluck is at 6:30 pm, and the ritual will start at 8:00 pm.
