Saturday june 21 marks the day when, in the northern hemisphere the sun creates longer days, it’s the longest day of the year the summer solstice. In pagan tradition we celebrate a sabbat it’s called Litha.
Litha means illumination and the summer solstice is all about the sun! This is traditionally the month of marriages, since May and Beltane traditionally ring in hand fasting which lasts a year to determine your commitment to your partner. June then becomes the month when, after your hanfast, a couple will marry. Blossoms, fertility, fire and water all represent this time of year. Like most sabbats a bon fire and playing in the water, even a sprinkler will do to celebrate this holiday!
Blessed Litha beloved’s! In the southern hemisphere Litha is celebrated on 21Dec.
