Litha, also known as Alban Heruin, is the longest day of the year. The planet Venus, an energy of love, balance and harmony is above the Moon in the twilight morning sky, ringing in this earthly and sensual day.
It is the start of summer, a time to celebrate growth and life, honouring the incredible strength of the sun. A time of intensity, renewal, joy, and great potential.
Everything around you is in bloom, it's a night and day of pure magic – it's everywhere you look. The Fae Folk are celebrating, their magic is strong. The Mother Goddess gives us more than we need, and together with the God they bring abundance to all of nature.
This day also marks a shifting of the seasons, as the sun begins its decline. The Sun God, the ancient power of life, has reached his greatest strength and with this transforms, as the power of night must begin to grow again.
This is yin and yang, day and night, light and dark, fire and water. Once the pinnacle of power is reached, the decline begins, because everything is interconnected and interdependent in the natural world. These complementary forces interact to form a dynamic system and this way life is a never-ending flow.
