Somehow the body knows the star of our Earth is necessary nourishment. The year begins and we get more and more light right up to the pinnacle of our year—the Summer Solstice. It truly is the longest day. We shall not waste it!
Basil, Petitgrain, & Vetiver.
When your year’s pinnacle reveals itself, how shall you glisten?
Litha or the Summer Solstice is celebrated on June 21st. Rituals center around honoring all things related to the sun, fire, and summer’s bliss. Outdoor events of all kinds include picnics, bonfires, making daisy chains and flower crowns, floating candles in boats upon bodies of water, and constructing protective amulets from natural found objects.
