Celebrate Litha with a Radiance Ritual

Litha, also known as Midsummer or the Summer Solstice, is celebrated on June 20, 2024 in the Northern Hemisphere. It marks the longest day and shortest night of the year, when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky. This festival honors the sun's peak power and abundance, symbolizing light, warmth, and growth. It is a time of joy and celebration, as the Earth is at its most fertile, and nature is in full bloom.

The Meaning of Litha

Litha is deeply rooted in ancient traditions and pagan rituals, particularly within Wiccan and other neopagan practices. It is a celebration of life, energy, and the balance between light and darkness.

The sun god is honored for his life-giving force, and the Earth goddess is revered for her nurturing and sustaining qualities. Bonfires, feasting, dancing, and various forms of merriment are common ways to observe this festival, reflecting the vitality and exuberance of the season.

Performing Spellwork on Litha

Litha is a potent time for spellwork, as the heightened energy of the sun enhances magical practices. It is an ideal day for spells related to abundance, prosperity, healing, and purification. The powerful solar energy can be harnessed to amplify intentions and bring about desired outcomes.

By aligning your spellwork with the potent energies of Litha, you can harness the peak solar power to bring about transformation, healing, and abundance in your life.

Radiance Ritual

To bring the sun into your every day experience, practice a radiance ritual! You can practice this ritual often, and is a terrific way to bring in the light of Litha if it happens to be a dreary day.


  • A wall mirror
  • Three candles (one of which you should be able to safely hold in your hand)


As you look in the mirror, light all three candles and hold one of them in your hands. Place the other two on a counter or somewhere they will be visible in the mirror. Take a step back from the mirror (the more of your body you can see in the mirror, the better) and gaze at yourself, taking in all the beauty and radiance you emanate.

As you do so, recite the following:

Flames of these candles three
Reveal the essence that is me
My inner beauty shining bright
I am radiant and become the light


Sit or stand in meditation on these words, reciting them as many times as you wish. Continue to gaze at yourself and the candlelight in the mirror, allowing the flames to shape-shift your divine essence as you feel into your inner and outer beauty. Reflect on why you feel the way you do and how you can fuel the fires to grow your radiance.

When you have completed the ritual, blow the candles out safely or allow them to burn completely. You can continue to utilize these candles for this specific ritual until they burn through.
