Litha and Honey Cake

Litha and Honey Cake

The day is long and the night is short.

Litha, also called midsummer and summer solstice, means light. And because it's a solstice this means that the earths tilt towards the sun is at its maximum in the Northern Hemisphere.

Spiritually this is the time to celebrate the light in all of its glory. It's a time to appreciate nature's abundance and our own. It's also a time of new beginnings, healing, hope, creativity, and enlightenment. 

As it pertains to fairies, the veil is thin on Litha. 

Fairy rings of flowers, mushrooms, and toadstools can be found with all of our new blooms. If you haven't started working with the fae yet, and if you're in good standings of course, Litha is a great day to connect with the little people and nature. 

You can do this by leaving a small offering of petals, sweets, cream, butter, dance, and/or song. Traditionally Litha was a time for feasting and dancing the day away. 



I love knowing the correspondences to all things because this makes it so much easier to dive into our power and magick and create things that feel most in tune with the Earth and ourselves.

  • Symbols: fire, spirals, the sun, fairies, and herbs
  • Animals: horses, cows, bees, butterflies, and summer birds
  • Crystals: amber, citrine, tigerseye, emerald, and sunstone
  • Plants/Herbs: cinnamon, sunflowers, marigolds, daisies, dandelions, and yarrow
  • Food: oranges, lemonade, cheese, berries, peaches, and honey.


Honey Cake:

I found this recipe unauthored on Pinterest.


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 C honey
  • 1 C sugar (I use 1 C of dates with 1/2 C hot water to create a paste because my autoimmune says no thank you to refined sugar)
  • 1 C oil (I use avocado oil, again because of my AI)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (although I always say to your hearts desire)
  • 2 1/2 C flour (we use gluten free)
  • 1 C coffee (I think substituting this with milk would taste better personally)


The Recipe literally said: mix together lol, so thats what I did. And I put this in a cake pan for 30-45 minutes at 350 F.
