Litha Festival – Crescent Moon Earrings, Pearl White
Litha or Summer Solstice celebrates the beginning of summer. This solstice has a focus on bonfires, rolling cartwheels of fire, dancing, early vegetable harvest, handfasting, spiritual contemplation about the balance between light and darkness. The Oak King is at full power until, the Holly king regains his rule at the Autumn Equinox. This is a popular time to visit stone circles with their alignments to the sun during the summer solstice. The crescent moon is so magical to look upon; its various stages from waxing to waning are a constant delight. The Celts like other ancient people planted crops by moon phases for a better yield. As the moon rises we are aware of its luminous glow that makes crops grow, tides move and heightens our emotions. The moon is subtle, hidden and secretive until the full moon lights the night sky. The Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite that has been constantly revered by the ancestors who prayed to the Moon Goddess/Gods. The moon has a calming and introspective effect on people, yet a full moon or dark moon may create a lively mood. Celebrate outdoors with a fire, green vegetable feast and the night sky; celebrate the blessings of growth and warmer weather.
