June 2005 Merlian Newsletter



Dear Readers,

In the pagan wheel of the year, Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer, Litha, or St. John’s Day, occurs in the middle of June. It is a celebration of the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year. The summer solstice has been a time of grand tribal gathering since ancient times. The Goddess manifests as Mother Earth and the God as the Sun King. Colors are Blue, Yellow, and Green. It is a holiday of community sharing and planetary service.

The roses are blooming in Westchester County, including Merlian News Magazine and our sister site, PS-Magazine.

Please remember to keep checking Holistic USA and Holistic New York for updated information on psychic news and events throughout the country as well as the New York area.

We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the magazine and for your feedback. We look forward to receiving more articles in the future.

Please feel free to forward this newsletter to contacts on your email list who might find it of interest.
