What is the summer solstice?
The summer solstice, also referred to as Midsommar (have you seen that film?!), occurs when one of the Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun.
It happens twice a year once in each hemisphere and for all of us in the UK, it occurs today on June 21 this year.
According to the Readers Digest, with the sun teaming up with lucky planet Jupiter during this solstice, we’ll feel like anything is possible.
However, since the sun is in Cancer and Jupiter is in Pisces, two emotional water signs, we could be feeling all the feels.
