Litha on the corner



Litha is tomorrow, the longest day of the year is on the corner! I love Summertime n Petropolis, because although it's hot lke hell during the day, in the evenings a sweet breeze is always blowing, which make things easier, the opposite in Rio, when evenings are as hot as days and Summer ends up becoming unbearable to stand!

I will probably make it smple as usual. Maybe I'll make a "breakfast picnic" with Lucas outside home in the yard to celebrate the sabbath... Lucas already made this morning a nest for the birds using dried leaves and moss from the ground, surroundning it with stones. I don't think the birds will get close to it, but the intention is there, which is good! It's like an offering to the Air creatures, including the dear fairies, and placing a bit of honey and milk will not hurt.


Lucas wants to make a Greenman mask like the one above, so this is going to be the best, using lots of green leaves, dried leaves, etc. I just can't promise it will look so cool as that one!

As Litha is a great time for healing and protective rituals, I'll surely perform a little one in the evening, after the traditional ritual I always make with Lucas.

I wish you all a great Yule time tomorrow, full of good vibes! And soon, a beautiful Christmas time for my non-pagan friends!

My granddaughter GereaKaye, 9 and I were discussing this morning about the opposites of the hemispheres and the fact that you lucky folkes are celebrating Litha upcoming. It is her favorite of the esbats. She loves leaving milk and honey for the garden fairies and watching into the night for the signs of the wee folke. So from our pagan house to yours, brightest MidSummer blessings as we celebrate Yule. Linda in New Mexico

I saw that very same mask (or at least it looks just like it) at Faeriecon.... I am looking forward to seeing Lucas's take on it - I bet it is indeed better! <3 & bright blessings to you & Lucas!
