Lithia or Summer Solstice

 
Nature is now at it's peak and it is officially the first day of summer. It is also referred to as Midsummer because it is approximately the middle of the growing season throughout much of Europe. Celebrated around the 21st of June, this is the longest day of the year.

Magick abounds throughout the lands. We now celebrate the impending fatherhood of the Sun God, as the Goddess is round with child and in full health. We also celebrate abundance, warmth, and fertility, and the feminine aspect. This is a perfect time to get involved in anything having to do with art and show it at the celebration. It is also a good time for magickal workings of all kinds. Considered a day sacred to the sidhe.

There was a fire festival on this night and also love magic. It was said that maidens would find out about their future husband. Another role of these bonfires was to generate sympathetic magic, giving a boost to the energy of the sun so that it would remain agreeable throughout the rest of the growing season and guarantee a plentiful harvest. Traditionally, herbs are gathered on this day and are said to be extremely powerful. We take our ritual for a walk honor nature's spirits.
