Litha: Shine the light within for self-healing at Summer Solstice

In the Wheel of the Year, Litha - or Summer Solstice - falls on 21 June. Now is the time to turn that light inwards and take a quest for self-healing.

The 21st of June marks the return of the Summer Solstice or Midsummer. Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, the time when the sun is at its height.

The Sun God has known complete love with the Goddess of Summer and their union hopefully has ensured a good harvest for all.

Now that the Sun God is fulfilled, he will change direction and, inspired by love, begin his inner quest. This means finding the courage to heal and transform our life, and calling upon the hero/heroine in ourselves. We must summon the sun to bless the land and to put to flight all destructive forces. This includes protesting on behalf of Mother Earth. So, inspired by love, we set sail for the Isle of Rebirth to realign and heal ourselves.

Our quest is concerned with self-exploration and facing our own inner demons to gain knowledge. In being open to receive the love of our Goddess we are filled with the power to bless. 

It is also the time of the year, at Summer Solstice, when we are closest to the Holy Grail. This is the cup of happiness given by the Goddess. This embodies the true meaning of the Grail cup. Nature has reached its peak - the leaves, flowers and crops are established and it is time for the enjoyment of what one has.

Happy Litha!
