Sun Spells

If you possibly can, on the day of the Solstice go to the seashore, and at the low tide draw a solar image in the sand. Make it as large and ornate as you can, for this is in honor of the Sun. In the center place three stones or pieces of wood for three things you would like to change in your life. Position yourself where you can watch the incoming tide slowly erasing your image. As this happens, visualize the waters taking away the old and bringing in the new.

If you are unable to get to the shore then gather flower petals in reds and oranges and perform the same spell at the top of the highest hill you can reach. Try to time your arrival so that the sun is at its zenith just after you have created your image in petals. Let the wind take them in the same way as the tide above. If it is a very still day you may need to leave the pattern after your visualization, but rest assured that the magic will still work.

Whichever of these you choose to perform, follow it by taking a walk. As you go, take care to notice the seasonal changes around you. The Solstice marks the start of Summer proper. This is the season when the crops are ripening and the trees and bushes are starting to produce fruit. It is also the time when we should look at our own lives and give thanks to the Gods for those things which have born, or are bearing, fruit.

From The Real Witches’ Year

sunMaterials:
  • 1/2 teaspoon tarragon
  • 1 paper coffee filter
  • 3 family-size tea bags
  • 1 quart cold water
  • Quart jar with screw-on lid
  • Twine or string
Note: This spell invokes the young Sun, and is best performed during the hours of dawn and 9 am.
Sprinkle the tarragon in the center of the coffee filter, then gather the edges to form a bag, and secure well with string. Toss the tea bags and tarragon bag in the jar, fill it with cold wter, screw on the lid, and take it outdoors. Holding the jar up to the Sun, ask His help by saying something like:
O Growing Child – Our Sun and Star –
Cast Your rays both near and far
Upon this tea and bless it well
So that its properties expel
Worn-out notons and perceptions
Old ideas and misconceptions
And as You brew it, please imbue
It with an accepting, tolerant view
Of those things I find so difficult
So its ingestian shall result
In a freedom that I’ve never known
From expectations that I’ve sown
In others’ gardens as they tread
Their personal paths; and please, too, shed
Your light upon me – guide my way –
As I work through this today
Oh Young Child Sun, now hear my plea
And do just what I ask of Thee

Place the jar in a sunny spot and leave it there to brew until sunset. Then remove the bags, dilute if necesssary, sweeten as desired and serve it to those who need it, and drink it yourself.
