As a young child I heard, felt, saw strange things, growing up weird things happened to me and as an adult, I have been asked to help spirit find peace. I work with angels and guides to help healing for the living and spirit and I embrace Paganism in my own way.

People have worshipped the sun and moon for many centuries. There are so many gods and goddesses that are associated with the sun.
Amun, the ancient Egyptian god of creation along with Ra, the sun god. Helius, the Greek god, who rode the sun chariot across the sky. Huitzilopochtli was the sun god worshipped by the Aztecs. Sol was the sun god for the Romans. Belenos, also known as Beli Mawr (the Great), was the Celtic God of the Sun, His festival of Beltane, held on May 1st is celebrated with bonfires.
You may notice, these seem to be ‘male’ figures of worship for the sun. Initially, it was mainly female dieties for the sun, but somewhere along the way, female dieties were removed and became associated with the moon instead.
Many stone circles, burial mounds are aligned with the sun and moon, none more known than, ‘Stonehenge’. Two pits were found at Stonehenge which point to it once being used as a place of sun worship before the stones were erected. The pits are positioned on celestial alignment at the site and may have contained stones, posts or fires to mark the rising and setting of the sun. We know that at the Summer Solstice, the sun rises between the stones and is ‘celebrated’ by thousands. Many people will rise early on this day to be somewhere high so as to ‘greet the coming sun’ and give thanks for the warmth and blessings the sun brings.
