Saturday and dark moon are times when black magic takes place
also the solar eclipse https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2020-june-21

I feel a lot of pain and evil in the air
I had this problem year ago with dark moon in Pisces which adds up to sensitivity. A death condensed... not a romantic death as transition but a decay which, while you live, you don't really want to feel. Might be in dark moon's times quite often, Saturdays waning moon times too. I'd say beware, but I don't know what to do about it.

Happy Solstice everyone! Pick your magical herbs today!
I have 2 Zoom rituals one of which I am really unprepared for, so wish me luck!
May the energy of the Sun charge you through the year.
I'm making a solar water for this end. Placed in the suns rays for at least an hour with a clear quartz within, asperse yourself throughout the seasons when you need a little boost of energy!
Watch for Fairies!
Blessings, Firebird

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! Yummy.. Now I am wanting some cookies. I left some offerings to Goddess Áine and lit a candle to honor the sun on it's longest day. Bought some sunflowers for my ancestors to put on their altar and got some sunflower seeds, too! Hoping to start those tomorrow. Blessed be. <3

What a wonderful day. The weather was absolutely perfect, (we had our typical June gloom in the AM but the clouds broke away about noon, just in time to beam healing rays onto the stone in the water) some mugwort was harvested, the fairy house got some goodies :wink: ,
made a solstice elixir, both rituals went really well and all the stones got a bath!

I think it was 3 and a quarter am? Cloudy day anyway.

Litha evening at 7-9pm the energy went into good mood as many covens were celebrating 9pm here was 8pm UK so I imagine that was their time of rituals approx. too. Then the energy went dead serious again. I had good dreams in the night since it probably hit the time US folk were celebrating, as energy of the feast was lifted up again.
I also had one nightmare in the night I imagine it was last hour of Saturn, which happens to me often Saturdays waning moons when the last hour of Saturn hits (might have been around the eclipse time too, this nightly hour).

Yea, I get your point that there’s not much sunshine at 3 am ... on the average night anyways. 😁

I celebrated many Sabbaths like that, one evening after most did.
I don't know. Sun have entered Cancer by the noon of 21st already, so eve before the event was 20th. Evenings are usually times for celebrations. Like Full Moon esbat is done eve before it hits, in case it occurs at noon.
Except for Lughnassad rites to take place at noon to bring offering of honey in silk to lady of the mountain (see Hygromanteia by Golden Hoard). I mean, no, those are customs and people make a rite in the evening of Lughnassad too, I guess. Customs to be done all day long accompany feasts.

Hey Widge :wave: come on in and make an introduction...
The apex was about 10:43pm GMT on the 20th (Sun goes into Cancer) so it was already dark. (The time difference was about one second), so the Sunrise on the next day (the 21st) was the time to celebrate.
You would have to look at some charts for the length of day in that time zone.
this is a good resource

and then this page says a little bit about the event...
