Summer Solstice Ritual:
Time: June 21
-Flower Incense( Rose, Lily, Lilac, etc.)
-Chalice of Wine
Set the Cauldron in the center of the altar, with the green candle on the left and the gold on the right. You can decorate your altar if you wish. ( I put fae figurines and flowers on my altar and things that represent the Sun.)
Cast your circle.
Light the Green candle, and say:
" Lady of the Stars, Spinner of fates, I call upon You all Your ancient names and welcome You to my circle. All you Fairies, Elves, and other friendly nature spirits, welcome, welcome! The tides of magical power flow strong. I ask for your friendship, for I too walk the path of magical power."
Light the Gold candle, and say:
" Hail, Sun king, the Golden Lord of light and love. Welcome! Your dazzling robes bless the lands. Under Your gentle reign, the Small Folk are abroad, reveling in the kiss of summer power. I ask Your blessing upon this house and all within it.
Place your palms over the water in the cauldron, and say:
" Bless this water with Your touch, Oh Lady and Lord. May it be an earthly connection with the hidden Well of Wisdom."
Hold your hands between the green and the gold candles and make a wish for your future. With the forefinger of your power hand, touch the water and then your forehead, lips, and heart. Kneel before your altar and rededicate your life.
" I will serve the Lady and the Lord with all my heart. I choose to be a Pagan, a stone in the ancient circle of power and Mysteries. I will stand firm in my love of the Old Ones, enduring through all time. May the Goddess and the God witness my words!"
(Now is the time to do any spellwork you wish to do.)
Set the chalice of wine on the pentacle. Take the dagger and gently touch the tip to the wine/juice, saying:
" As this athame is the male, so this cup is female, and joined they bring blessings."
Raise the chalice high over the altar and say:
" To the Old Ones! Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again! Blessed be!"
Drink a little of the wine/juice, saving some for the nature spirits. Close the Circle.
Peace and Pasta!~
