Every year, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is celebrated across the world.
Discover the symbolism and mystique surrounding this Pagan festival
In our modern society, everything pushes us to forget the ancestral traditions and customs, although not so distant, which marked the seasons and celebrated the cycles of nature.
The summer solstice, also known as Litha, is one of those meaningful times when our ancestors honored the sun and the fertility of the Earth.
Today we invite you to delve into the forgotten traditions of Litha and awaken your inner light during this solemn celebration.
Understanding the origins of Litha - summer solstice
Litha dates back to a time not so long ago, when our ancestors recognized the vital importance of the sun in their daily lives. They celebrated this summer solstice as a time of renewal, abundance and deep connection with nature.
The Meaning of Litha
Litha marks the peak of summer, when the sun is at its peak and the light is at its maximum. It is a celebration of gratitude for the abundant nature around us, a time when we can connect with our deep essence and celebrate our own inner light. At LunaLuz, we believe in the importance of cultivating this inner light to nourish our holistic well-being.
When history freezes
Archaeological sites dedicated to Litha bear witness to its importance.
Stonehenge, for example, a megalithic monument in southern England, is considered one of five ancient astronomical observatories by NASA. It is known to mark the solstices, both in winter and summer. Every year, a neopagan festival is organized there to celebrate the summer solstice, during which the sun touches the famous Heel stone.
Other sites around the world, such as Externsteine in Germany and the Great Serpent Mound in Ohio, are also associated with the summer solstice.
In Egypt, the sun sets precisely between the pyramids of Cheops and Chephren during the summer solstice, demonstrating the architectural precision of ancient Egyptian civilization.
