Midsummer, or Litha, takes place on or near the Summer Solstice which is the longest day of the year. From here on out the daylight hours slowly decline until Winter Solstice. The Goddess is pregnant and ripe with the promise of the harvest soon to come. This is a time for charging and clearing crystals with the strongest sunshine of the year, as well as a time to honor and work with the Fairies. The twilight of this shortest night of the year can be an important gateway to their realm, energetically speaking. Many also celebrate the turning of the year with a reenactment of the battle between the Holly and Oak Kings, with the Holly King winning to rule over the time of coming darkness.
In this painting, the Spiral Dancer is the pregnant Mother Goddess embracing all of nature. The abundance of intense green growth is intoxicating. Pictured with her is a white deer with a single horn - a real animal that many believe has been born to signal a time of great change. The fairies light up the air around them and there is a sense of peace of joyful, yet subdued, celebration.
She is part of the Spiral Dance Collection which portrays the goddesses as a mix of human features and expressions of energy, which flow out from their hands and feet as spirals but can also be expressed through other elements associated with them. She is faceless so that each individual can imagine the features that they need to see in order to have a personal connection with her.
