Litha Midsummer Solstice Spread
On This Day
Russian witchcraft states the most powerful botanicals are ritually harvested on Midsummer’s Eve. Unique plants like the fern seed offer invisibility on this night only. Now is a magical time for divining, finding true love, and flirting.
Litha was originally intended to coincide with the summer solstice, and on modern calendars it is often celebrated between June 20—24. A fire and water festival, it marks the convergence of the sun and moon, and it is considered optimal for harvesting magical and medicinal plants.
