The Sun Eclipse
The Moon eclipse made a farewell to summer and also opened up an ‘eclipse tunnel’ leading us straight to the 10th of June when the Sun eclipse will take place and will close this misty and tense period. However, the power of the two eclipses meeting won’t go away unnoticed. Whereas the Sun will go dark while being in the sign of Gemini, the next few weeks after the eclipse will cause disturbances in communication, diplomacy, negotiation, trade, travel, and transportation. Summer warmth will let you meet these obstacles with patience. It is very important to stay calm and avoid conflicts and misunderstandings. Always wise Mimir and the essential oil blend will help you to stay balanced throughout this time.

Dancing around and jumping above the fire, wreathing, using magical spells, and searching for fern blossom. These are inseparable from the Litha Sabbath. It was always the time for the couples who met on Walpurgis night to celebrate their love and relationship by morning bathing and welcoming the sunrise.
