The Summer Solstice (cont)
Myth and folklore abound about this Solstice, and also about the preceding eve, and the evening of the day itself, particularly in Britain and the rest of Europe. Midsummer’s Eve is considered to be a very fortunate time to try to divine your future love. If a maiden can pluck a perfect rose with her eyes shut and without shedding blood she will meet her true love by Midwinter. Often love potions were made on this night, and considered to have greater potency than those made at any other time of the year (be careful with love potions – they can have some very unfortunate consequences at times ;-)).
Casting a stone into the Solstice fire having charged it to that which
you most deeply desire is said to draw that desire into your life –
again be careful of this one, it can backfire badly.
Scattering the cold ashes of the Solstice fire over your crops will
guarantee a fine harvest for that season – I quite often do that and
when I do it always works. You can use barbeque ashes, but ensure
you avoid any which are splashed with fat.
