Litha takes place on the Summer Solstice and happens between June 20 and 23rd, in the Northern Hemisphere. The first official day of summer and the time of year that is filled with life and light. Litha is a celebration of the sun star and mother nature. We honor the Sun as well as the Green Man and Lady. Nature is once again at her fullest and all is swelled with abundance.
Traditionally on the eve of Litha there were bonfires lit a top of hills and in sacred spaces in order to honor the sun at her most powerful. The wood for the fires was often oak (representing the Oak King who rules the waxing portion of the year). Herbs were thrown into the fire and then used to bless the animals. Next the coal was scattered into the fields to encourage a bountiful harvest. Participants would stay up all night on Midsummers Eve burning the fires and finally would welcome the solstice sunrise in the morning.
The ancient Romans celebrated the summer solstice as a festival for Juno, the goddess of women and childbirth. She was known to bless women with menstruation. The month of June was named for her, a reason June is still a popular month for weddings. Midsummer was also around the festival Vestalia, a festival honoring Vesta, the goddess of the hearth, held from June 7 to June 15. Women would leave offerings for Vesta, hoping that she would bless their homes. In Europe, they celebrated midsummer similarly to the way they celebrated Beltane—with lots of fire. Early Europeans used to set large wheels on fire and roll them down a hill into a body of water. This was meant to represent the balance of fire and water during Litha. Another popular tradition is for girls and women to place flowers under their pillows, inviting future partners to appear to them in their dreams.
~Beeswax is a gift to you from nature. Beeswax candles burn brighter, remove toxins from the air and give off a sweet, warming aroma when lit. The simple act of burning a candle has relaxing properties and can aid in stress relief and meditation. The mildly sweet, natural honey scent of beeswax candles can aid that relaxation without being overwhelming.
These candles are made with no oils or herbs and are ready for you to anoint if you wish to do so.
~Yellow Candles are used to symbolize brainpower, focus, concentration, intellect, creativity, logic, learning, to improve visualization, to improve memory. Use yellow for confidence, charm, persuasion, attractiveness, to compel another to do your bidding, also for inspiration, knowledge, wisdom, mental strength and clarity, communication. It stimulates your personal power and self-esteem, and promotes cheerfulness and an optimistic outlook.
~Orange candles are used primarily for spellwork connected to business and careers. The color evokes ambition and creativity and a sense of fearlessness. Burning an orange candle is considered an aggressive move, that shows you are without fear and expect big things to happen immediately. This is why orange candles are well-suited for career workings, or any other time you need to assert your strength and individuality. Orange candles are used in rituals that come before important events such as the eve of an important business meeting or family event.
