The Summer Rite
The Summer Solstice is the great turning-point in the sun's career. It is the moment when it reaches its apex and the male energies are at their most potent. The paradox is that this moment of ultimate power is immediately followed by the process of decline. Naturally, this brought about anxiety in our ancestors, since they rightfully connected the sun's potency with all life on earth, including their own. This is a struggle that Gay men living today share with our our ancestors: the fear of decline and decay into old age and eventual death, so the same practices that brought our ancestors peace and contentment can also ease our modern minds.
