Made a solar wheel for summer solstice. Here’s the elements explained:
-4 sticks lashed together to form 8 points. The big points represent the solstices and equinoxes, the smaller points represent the cross quarter festivals.
-the large points have elderflowers and lemon balm lashed to them, traditional summer solstice herbs
-the small points have roses lashed to them to represent love and friendship
-the sticks are lashed with reeds (cos they work well!), and mugwort which represents dreams, premonition and clarity
