In the old traditions of Witchcraft, the year is a cycle. Every ending, therefore, is a new beginning. The time of death is also the year’s rebirth.
As the sun sets at last on the longest day, take some time to consider how everything must eventually reach its peak, and transform.

On this night of magic winds and portents, light a candle, share some food with someone you love and remember those who are gone. Offer them your gratitude and your prayers, and the most important gift: your commitment to pass on a thriving, viable world to those who will come.
