Falling midway between Beltaine and Lúnasa, Lammas is the Summer Solstice, marking the peak of the sun’s influence upon the Earth.

The spiral of the year has expanded to its widest point and now the hours of light are as long as they will ever be. After June 20th or 21st , the sun’s power will begin to wane, and the days grow shorter.

The sun has touched the northernmost point along the horizon and is about to embark upon the long journey back south, ending at the Winter Solstice in December.
