Litha red flames flicker longest day of the year we honor death, rebirth, and change Magick our Summer Solstice blessings flow let go—learn acceptance abide in the moment
We know Litha, the Summer Solstice, is called the festival of fire. June 21st is the longest day of the year. The Sun is at its full strength shining bright in the sky. After this day, the upcoming days will become shorter and shorter until December 21st, when we reach the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.
On Summer Solstice Eve, people all over the globe celebrate with fire rituals. In America, Pagans celebrate this holiday with a huge bonfire to remind us of the heat of the summer sun. For me, the color red signifies the Summer Solstice bonfires. 🔥
The Summer Solstice reminds us that nothing lasts forever. Summer is always short-lived. We live in a world that is constantly changing, dying, and renewing. This is a time of letting go and accepting the things we can’t change. Now, we must be fully in the present moment, soaking up the richness of the here and the now. We can use that sun energy to inspire, to uplift us, to energize us. Let the spirit of the season ignite our inner fires and passions to accomplish our life goals.
Mark your calendars! June 21st is just around the corner. Learn more about the roots of the Summer Solstice HERE…
