Celebrating the Alchemical Magic of Litha

Litha, also known as midsummer or summer solstice, is typically celebrated in the northern hemisphere between June nineteenth and June twenty-fifth. This time of year finds the sun’s energy at its peak as we experience the longest day and shortest night. The sun moves into its most potent magical power creating significant alchemical opportunities.


The energies that abound during this time are of creativity, action, vitality, bounty, and abundance. Consciously honoring and celebrating Litha is an extremely enriching and delightful experience.

Litha correspondences:

  • the sun and the element of fire
  • animal spirit guides snake, bee, and butterfly
  • honey
  • plant spirits sunflower, rue, lemon balm, and rose
  • the goddess Athena
  • mineral realm allies yellow tiger’s eye, amber, and fire agate
  • the colors gold, yellow, orange, and red

This is by no means an exhaustive list. I encourage you to do your own research. Intuitively call upon your own sense of what resonates with you regarding Litha correspondences. You may make the most of the Litha energies and associations, by using them during your meditations, rituals, ceremonies, magical workings, and intention setting.

Creating a Litha altar is one of the most powerful ways to directly call in, and call upon, the midsummer energy. Additionally, getting creative and having some fun by baking sun bread or making a fruit salad sweetened with honey and chopped lemon balm greatly enhances the abundant and joyful properties of this beautiful sabbat. Visit a farmer’s market and pick up locally grown and created honey mead, beeswax candles, honey, fruits, or vegetables. Consuming and celebrating locally grown foods and creations is a powerful and easy way to call in the core energy of Litha.

However you choose to acknowledge Litha’s supportive energies, may you find great empowerment within doing so, rejoicing in the abundance of light and vitality of life itself.
