As the wheel turns again we find ourselves at Summer Solstice. Litha - Midsummer is one of the Lesser Wiccan Sabbats. The sun is at the height of it power before beginning its slide into darkness and we experience the longest day and shortest night of the year.

Fire is the element of transformation and passion. It is the energy in alchemy that creates the new form. The element of fire can be utilized in spells related to energy, sexuality, passions, love, protection, courage, strength, physical exercise, self-knowledge, loyalty, vision, illumination, power.

VIDEO: We started with the densest element, Earth and in the remainder of this series; we’ll progress to those that are increasingly subtle. In this video we move onto the element of Water.
