Litha or Midsummer, falls on the Summer Solstice, on or around June 20. During this time, we as Witches honor and celebrate the Sun at the peak of His power. We draw in the energy of the Mother Earth and her magick of fertility and growth. We prepare ourselves and our homes for the waning periods of the Sun, which lie shortly ahead. Midsummer is the longest day of the year and the shortest night.
In the Witches tradition, Litha symbolizes the end of the reign of the waxing year's Oak-King, who is now replaced by the Holly-King of the waning year (who rules until Yule). In our ritual and magick we understand and attune ourselves with this subtle change and draw in the growth and balance in which the Holly King draws forth. We cast spells for love, passion, and psychic power. The Fairy World itself is drawn to the energy of this time and many of us attempt to contact these magickal creatures and use their magick to empower our lives, homes, and spells.
