Sun Spells

Here is a great winter solstice ritual to bring in the unconquered sun. It’s very powerful, and requires no special ingredients.

About an hour before sunrise, plant yourself outside, preferably on a hill, or the top of a building. Face the direction where the sun will rise and begin to call the sun. Forcefully project the sound so that you imagine your body shaking; then the room or space where you are shakes; then the world, and finally the whole universe – by which time, you should be sweating. Eventually, you will feel that the sound is coming through, rather than from you.

Names or mantras you can use include the following:

  • Shamash (Babylonian)
  • Amun Ra (Egyptian)
  • Sulis (Celtic)
  • Helios (Greek)
  • Surya (Vedic)
  • Sol Invictus (Roman)
  • Inti (Incan)

If it feels more comfortable, you can preface the name with “Hail, Hello, Wake Up,” or something similar. It may also help to begin the call more quietly, and gradually increasing the volume as you grow more comfortable with it.

When the edge of the sun becomes visible above the horizon, drop into a prayer position and remain so until the sun is completely risen. In the event of a cloudy morning, when the sky begins to brighten, you can imagine that the sun is becoming visible.

Note: This is something really powerful to do as a group.

On the darkest night of the year, gather together three dried leaves of holly and pulverize them into powder. On a clean, four-inch by four-inch piece of paper, write a single word in red ink that represents what quality you would like to be born within yourself along with the newborn Yule Sun.

Sprinkle the holly powder into the center of the paper, twist the whole thing closed with the holly powder inside. Light the wick of a red candle, and from this flame, light the holly- filled paper on fire. As it burns, see your wish fulfilled. The spell is done.

We all suffer from stress at one time or another, and in a workplace it is often difficult to reverse the situation. This spell can be taken to your workplace or used in other stressful situations, with minimum disturbance. For healing and magic, the earth, or Mother Earth, from whence all things spring, is unsurpassed. Add a little Borage, the flower of courage, and some of your own essence, and even the most difficult of predicaments can be overcome.

Here is a Mediterranean spell to charge you with the strength to overcome a stressful situation. The items you will need are as follows:

  • A handmade cloth bag
  • Some dry earth
  • A small bunch of Borage flowers

Instructions:

Make a small bag. It can be very plain and simple, but it is important that you stitch it together by hand, so that you are putting your self-essence into it. The bag needs to be large enough for you to get both hands inside, with a drawstring to secure it. As a special touch, embroider your initials on it in your favorite color.

On a bright, sunny day collect a few handfuls of dry earth and some borage flowers. Feel the sun’s rays warming your body and the flowers and the soil in your hands, and store the memory carefully.

Dry the Borage flowers, then place them with the earth in your bag. pull the drawstring to secure them. keep the bag in an accessible place. When things are going badly or you need a pick-me-up, it will only take a few moments to place your hands in the bag, touch the dried Borage flowers, reflect on your stored memories, and let Mother Earth work her magic.

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.

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.

Tracking The Moon
Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
