Witchcraft for Beginners
Witchcraft for Beginners – Litha Celebration
Join us for an introduction into witchcraft, paganism and the earthly cycles of magic!
We’re celebrating the longest day, Litha, the summer solstice, when the Sun is highest in the sky and begins its downward decent. Midsummer is a time of lush and fertile growth and expansion. It’s a celebration of the bounty and beauty of the abundance we are gifted by Mother Earth.
During our time together we’ll learn more about Litha and the mythology surrounding this sabbat. We will also perform a small ritual and end with a meditation.
For our Litha ritual, if you would like to join in, you will require a few tools and supplies.
You will need:
A yellow or brightly coloured cloth to symbolize the energy of the sun; this will be placed on the ground or a table to gather our other objects
Two candles, preferably red or yellow to symbolize the Sun God, and the other, green, to symbolize Mother Earth (and a lighter!)
A small bowl of purified water
A piece of paper and pen
Flowers, herbs or other treasures, such as acorns or feathers
Incense, if preferred
