The Pagan Path of Ritual & Ceremony
Embracing the ancient ways and pagan practices challenges the assumptions of mainstream society all the while strengthening your relationships with the gods, the universe, your community, and yourself.
I am a Wiccan Priestess in the Disk Of Lilith
The connection to something deeper, beyond the surface has alway beckoned me. I am innately drawn to nature - she is my haven and healing place. This connection to Mother Nature is what inevitably led me to be a Wiccan Priestess.
With the Initiation and training through the Modern Mystery School I am able to share the magick and lore of this path through ceremony, ritual, crafts, and dance!
Wicca comes from the ancient traditions of honoring the cycles of nature and life.
Wiccan magick imbues us with a zest for life and ignites our souls inner flame!
Wheel of The Year
Researching the ancient traditions and practices established by our ancestors hundreds of years ago - I found a common thread known as the Wheel Of The Year. This calendar was lived by and honored by the Druids to the Mayan and all people in between. They lived of separate continents on opposite sides of the planet yet were connected and sustained through their communion with Mother Nature, the cycles of the sun and moon, the elements, and each other.
The Pagan path predates modern religion and has stood the test of time. It is founded on honoring life and seeing the divine within all living things.
In the embracing of pagan practices, we are inviting more joy, growth, and deeper connection into our lives!
Summer Solstice ~ Lithia ~ Midsummer
The sun shines brightly overhead as witches dance around a bonfire and feast on fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields. Children laugh and play, rolling wheels that symbolize the sun and chasing shining bubbles that float through the air like faeries. It is summer Solstice, also known ad Midsummer or Lithia.
The earth rejoices in abundance and light, and so do we.
Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, and the shortest night. The sun has reached its zenith and is at the height of its power magically as well. After today the days will grow imperceptibly shorter, moving us into the dark half of the year.
I Wiccan Lore, it's the time when the solar God's power is at its greatest ( so, paradoxically his power must now start to decrease), having impregnated the maiden goddess, who then transforms into the earth mother.
Historically, Midsummer has been observed virtually in every culture in the world at one point or another. The Greeks, Romans, Celts, Norse, Aztecs, and jews all celebrated the longest day of the year in their own ways, with their own gods. But across all of these different cultures, certain themes are usually associated with this particular day.
For instance, since the sun is at its highest point, Midsummer is almost always celebrated as a solar festival, a fire festival or both.
It is believed the Druids gathered sacred herbs on this day, and even today we often harvest plants on Midsummer for use in magick, healing, and food preparation. Many of our modern-day practices on this holiday can be traced back to roots in earlier Pagan rites and rituals.
Midsummer is one of the great fire festivals, as its fitting for a day when the sun burns hot overhead. In may cultures it was customary to light bonfires, often on the top of hills where they could be seen for miles. People did circle dances around the fire or rolled burning wheels down the hill side. It was also considered to be the most auspicious day to commune with the Fae or Faerie people, as it was supposed that contact was easier during the “between”times, when one season transitioned to another. The faerie folk are also drawn to sweet smelling flowers, honey and nectar, and other elements most readily available at this time of year.
It’s generally a time for great merriment and celebration.
What I've shared above is a bit of the history behind the holiday . Might you desire to experience the potent energy that resides within this sacred day?
I invite you to join me in ceremony for ritual & magick to fill our cups and welcome in the joy, passion, and creativity that comes through on this day. There is a window of time to refuel yourself with the energies of Lithia.
Take advantage of the opportunity as she only comes once a year!
