Celebrating Litha: Wheel of the Year Part 5

Litha - Summer Solstice - Outdoor Picnic

 What's known as the ”Wheel of the Year” is a series of ancient traditions and celebrations that honor the cycles of the Earth as she shifts, through what we understand as the seasons.

Litha

The Summer Solstice, or Litha, is the time when the sun shines its brightest, the day is at its longest, and the Earth is at her peak of vibrant abundance.


What Litha Means to Me

Traditionally celebrated around June 21st, this is also my son's birthday, and so for me, this is a very special point on the wheel.


How I Celebrate Litha

As a counterpoint to the Winter Solstice when all I want is quiet, at the Summer Solstice all I want is raucous merrymaking.


Bring out the family, fire up the grill, and let's have a party to celebrate how wonderful life is and enjoy all the bounty that our Mother Earth provides.


 

Questions to Help You Begin Your Practice

  2. Where can you safely picnic, rest, and play?

  3. What music playlist or games do you like best for outdoor celebrations?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi there! I'm Shannon Bueche, and this is my space to share what's on my mind, as concisely as my Virgo brain will allow. Not only do I 'spill the tea' on some common misconceptions, but I also like to drink it while I'm running down the rabbit holes of the hows and whys of what I do to harmonize with the greater connections of life.


Whether it's living, growing, and harvesting in tune with the cycles of the year, the struggles of being human in this age, or just the random musings of an everyday Earth Mother, you'll find it all here. I believe in keeping things authentic, but still practical.  So, while I may overshare details from time-to-time, I will always offer suggestions that make sense for living right now. 


So, grab a cup, sit a spell, and join me on this journey of living from the ground up.
