"Devil's Snare, Devil's Snare. It's deadly fun... but will sulk in the sun! That's it! Devil's Snare hates sunlight! Lumos Solem!'"
Hermione Granger on the weakness of Devil's Snare[src]

The Lumos Solem Spell[2] (Lumos Solem) was a charm used to produce a blinding flash of sunlight. As Devil's Snare hated sunlight and heat, this particular Light-creation spell was quite effective towards subduing it.[1]


Derived from two words; the Latin lumen, meaning "light," and the Latin solis, meaning "of the sun," indicating that this spell produces "light of the sun."
