Summer Solstice (Litha)
Litha is one of Wicca’s eight sabbats during the year and occurs on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It celebrates the beginning of summer and celebrates nature’s growing fertility. Wiccans see the sabbats as changing relationships between the God and Goddess, with the Goddess full with child during Litha and the God at His most virile. Litha is considered a day of joy at the light’s full return and one of inner power and brightness. Many also consider it an excellent time to practice love magic or get married.
