Summer Solstice – “Litha”
Is all about Abundance, Growth, Love and Magic
Abundance can be found everywhere. Time to focus on the light and there is an air of Masculine energy
No matter how necessary and valuable the dark times of the year, the reaping and the resting, there is that in human beings which rejoices in the long sweet light of summer.
The magic of the Wheel of the Year is that it is symbolic of the journey of the human soul.
As the Earth moves through the seasons, it reminds us of our deeper purpose in incarnating… what we are really here for, and what our full potential is.
The Sun is and always has been symbolic of the highest Divinity. It is at this height of summer at solstice when the Sun’s power reaches its zenith.
Get outside and enjoy this Sun and feel the heal and love of the sunshine. Watch the Sunset if you can
Crystals to work with: Amber, Tigers Eye, Emerald and Jade
The summer solstice, otherwise known as the longest day of the year, is here, marking the return of brighter evenings, festivals, picnics and barbecues.
The name “solstice” comes from the fact that the Sun appears to stand still.
The term is derived from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still).
It appears that way because the Sun’s relative position in the sky at noon does not appear to change much during the solstice and its surrounding days.
Midsummer or the Summer Solstice is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun God. Because this Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, fire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and immediately felt element of transformation. It can burn, consume, cook, shed light or purify and balefires still figure prominently at modern Midsummer rites.
