The Summer Solstice, also know as Litha, is celebrated on June 21st which is the longest day of the year. It is a time of relaxation and merriment when we look back on the past six months of labour and toil and rejoice in our efforts. We can also use the Sun's energy at this time to shed light on things in our lives that may have been hidden in shadows, releasing them so that we can move forward.
FIRE is the element of Litha and Fire Rituals are performed and Balefires lit to honour our ancestors. Strength and success in Candle Magick is amplified at this time as well.
Be sure to include some Plant Magick in your sacred workings. It is the time of the Fae, and similar to Samhain, the veil between worlds is very thin. You might choose Hawthorn, Rowan or Oak as these are trees of the Fae.
Be sure to leave an offering to the Fae in return for anything you take!
