Merry meet all,
Summer Solstice is almost here!! The moon is waxing. This is a good magical time. Litha falls on June 21st and is the longest day of the year.
Every agricultural society has celebrated the Summer Solstice in one way or another. Today some people still journey to Stonehenge to celebrate Litha. On Jun 21st, the sun reaches its zenith in the sky. It is the longest day of the year. The word ‘solstice’ comes from the Latin word solstitium, which translates to ” sun stands still”.
The Stonehenge was created to highlight the rising of the sun on the day of the summer solstice. The ancient Celts may have celebrated this festive time with blazing hilltop bonfires. One European tradition was to set large wheels on fire and roll them down a hill.
Today you can celebrate Litha by finding a balance between earth, air, fire and water. Consider performing your ritual outdoors. Burn a small fire in your cauldron. Put flowers on your altar. Use a red or green altar cloth. Or jump through sprinklers or to go the ocean.
Enjoy the turn in the Wheel of the Year
