Thanks to everyone who watched and participated in today’s episode of Seeker’s Corner celebrating the Summer Solstice! Today we talked solar energy and magic and ways to honour and celebrate the sun as well as pagan handfasting! I also got a chance to show off the Litha Box from Green Moon Apothecary which includes magical items that represent the sun and season and help you have your own personal Litha ritual!
Some of the topics in this episode:
- Celebrating the Summer Solstice without including gods
- Jumping the broom
- Solar energy and harnessing the power of the sun
- Pagan hand-fasting as an alternative to traditional marriage, or even as part of a traditional wedding
- Love on Litha and June as wedding season
Books I used to prepare for today’s episode:
I mainly used two books to prepare for today’s topic! Llewellyn’s sabbat essentials guide to the solstice (titled Midsummer) written by Deborah Blake (whom I adore) is a great little guide that gives you full correspondences, historical practices and modern ways to celebrate, spells and rituals and recipes, and just everything you could need to throw or attend a pagan gathering or ritual. Everyday Sun Magic by Dorothy Morrison is the companion to Everyday Moon Magic and covers solar history, astrology, meanings, deities, spells, and rituals as well as herbs and crystals and things.
I was recently contacted by a cool Canadian company called Green Moon Apothecary, and offered a chance to check out their sabbat-themed subscription box that combines witchcraft and cannabis. Yes, it’s a box for CannaWitches! The box I received was themed for the summer solstice, or Litha, so I figured I’d show it off on the show! I’m super impressed with the quality and creativity involved in making and selecting all of the items in the box. The cookie grinder is especially amazing! I use it every day! Thank you so much to Vanessa for reaching out and sending me a box!
