Summer Solstice Continued from Facing Page symbolized in the crown- ing of the Oak King, God of the waxing year. At his crowning, the Oak King falls to his darker aspect, the Holly King, God of the waning year..." The days fol- lowing Alban Heruin form the waning ptrt of the year because the days become shorter. Ancient China: Their summer solstice ceremony celebrated the earth, the feminine, and the yin forces. It complemented the nter solstice which celebrated the heavens, masculinity and yang forces. Ancient Gaul: The Midsummer celebration was called Feast of Epona, named after a mare god- dess who personified fertil- ity, sovereignty and agicul- lure. She was portrayedas a woman riding a mare. Ancient Germanic, Slav and Celtic tribes in Europe: Ancient Pagans celebrated Midsummer with bonfires. "It was the night of fire festivals and of love magic, of love oracles and divination. It had to do with lovers and predic- Looking to BUy? Looking to Sell? Find it or Sell it in the tions, when pairs of lov- ers would jump through the luck-bringing flames..." It was believed that the crops would grow as high as the couples were able to jump. Through the fire's power, "...maidens would find out about their future husband, and spirits and demons were banished." Another function of bon- fires was to generate sym, pathetic magic: giving a boost to the sun's energy so that it would remain potent throughout the rest of the growing season and guar- antee a plentiful harvest. Ancient Rome: The fes= tival of Vestalia lasted from JUN-7 to JUN-15. It was held in honor of the Roman Goddess o.f the hearth, Vesta. Married women were able to enter the shrine of Vesta during the festival. At other times of the year, only the vestal vir- gins were permitted inside. Ancient Sweden: A Midsummer tree was set up and decorated in each town. The villagers danced around it. Women and girls would customarily bathe in the local river. This was a magical ritual, intended to bring rain for the crops. Christian countries: After the conversion of Europe to Christianity, the feast day of SL John the Baptist was set as JUN-24. It "is one of the oldest feasts, if not the oldest feast, intro- duced into both the Greek and Latin liturgies to hon- our a saint." Curiously, the feast is held on the alleged date of his birth. Other Christian saints' days are observed on the anniver- sary of "their death. The Catholic Encyclopedia explains that St. John was "filled with the Holy Ghost even from his mother's womb... [thus his] birth... should be signalized as a day of triumph:' His feast day is offset a few days after the summer solstice, just as Christmas is fixed a few days after the winter sol- stice. "Just as John was the forerunner to Jesus, mid- summer forecasts the even- tual arrival of" the winter solstice circa DEC-21. Essenes: This was a Jewish religious group active in Palestine during the 1st century CE. It was one of about 24 Jewish groups in the country -- the only one that used a solar calendar. Other Jesh groups at the time included the Sadducees, Pharisees, Zealots, followers of John, and followers of Yeshua (Jesus). Archaeologists have found that the larg- est room of the ruins at Qumran (location of the Dead Sea Scrolls) appears to be a sun temple. The room had been considered a dining room by earlier investigators, in spite of the presence of two altars at its eastern end. At the time of the summer solstice, the rays of the setting sun shine at 286 degrees along the building's longitudinal axis, and illuminate the eastern wall. The room is oriented at exactly the same angle as the Egyptian shrines dedicated to the sun. Two ancient authorities -- the historian Josephus and the philosopher Filon of Alexandria -- had written that the Essenes were sun worshipers. Until recently, their opinion had been rejected by modern histo- rians. d
