10 Ways to Celebrate Litha

10 ways to celebrate Litha

Make a batch of sun cakes.  If you’re a kitchen-y witch, celebrate this Sabbat by baking!  Sun cakes are perfect for the “cakes and ale” portion of a Litha ritual if you celebrate with a coven, or you can use them for offering.

Make herbal candle rings with your fresh herbs.   For the green witch:  with your herb garden in full swing, it’s time to make some creative use of it.

Try cloud scrying.   Find a warm, grassy spot and look up to see what messages the sky might have for you.

Go on an extended nature walk Pack a picnic or scout out a local natural swimming hole and dive fully into the Mother’s splendor.

Plan a camping trip.  If you’re feeling adventurous, pack up some gear and spend a night under the stars.

Attend a summer festival.  Litha is the week for pagan festivals.  Find one.  Attend it.  You’ll have a blast, I promise.

Go wildflower hunting.   Identify and harvest some wildflowers to use in your summer spell work.  Press them in your Book of Shadows if you have one.

Leave an offering of honey cakes outside.  Preferably somewhere away from your house, as they will attract insects and even wildlife.  Litha is said to be one of the two times of year when the “Veil Between Worlds” is the thinnest (the other being Samhain.)  According to legend, the fairies and forest spirits are especially active on the night of the summer solstice, and honey is favorite treat.

Speaking of honey, visit a honey farm!  If you’re not allergic to bees (or deathly afraid of them!) this is a nice activity.  Be sure to stock up while you’re there.

Read A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  Or better yet, go see a local production of it.  Full of traditional pagan folklore, Shakespeare’s classic comedy is one of my favorites and a common production for local theater companies this time of year.
