The Witches Spell for Monday, June 19th - A Midsummer Night’s Fire Ritual

June 19, 2017 @ 8:47 pm

                         book.jpg

The Witches Spell for Monday, June 19th - A Midsummer Night's Fire Ritual

 

The Summer Solstice, known to some as Litha, Midsummer, or Alban Heruin, is the longest day of the year. It’s the time when the sun is most powerful, and new life has begun to grow within the earth. After today, the nights will once more begin to grow longer, and the sun will move further away in the sky.

 

If your tradition requires you to cast a circle, consecrate a space, or call the quarters, now is the time to do so.

 

This ritual is a great one to perform outside, so if you have the opportunity to do this without scaring the neighbors, take advantage of it.

 

Begin this ritual by preparing the wood for a fire, without lighting it yet. While the ideal situation would have you setting a huge bonfire alight, realistically not everyone can do that. If you're limited, use a table top brazier or fire-safe pot, and light your fire there instead.

 

Say either to yourself or out loud:

 

Today, to celebrate Midsummer, I honor the Earth itself. I am surrounded by tall trees. There is a clear sky above me and cool dirt beneath me, and I am connected to all three. I light this fire as the Ancients did so long ago.

 

At this point, start your fire.

 

Say:
The Wheel of the Year has turned once more
The light has grown for six long months
Until today.
Today is Litha, called Alban Heruin by my ancestors.
A time for celebration.
Tomorrow the light will begin to fade
As the Wheel of the Year
Turns on and ever on.

 

Turn to the East, and say:

 

From the east comes the wind,
Cool and clear.
It brings new seeds to the garden
Bees to the pollen
And birds to the trees.

 

Turn to Face South, and say:

 

The sun rises high in the summer sky
And lights our way even into the night
Today the sun casts three rays
The light of fire upon the land, the sea, and the heavens

 

Turn to face West, saying:

 

From the west, the mist rolls in
Bringing rain and fog
The life-giving water without which
We would cease to be.

 

Finally, turn to the North, and say:

 

Beneath my feet is the Earth,
Soil dark and fertile
The womb in which life begins
And will later die, then return anew.

 

Build up the fire even more, so that you have a good strong blaze going.

 

If you wish to make an offering to the gods, now is the time to do it. For this sample, we're including the use of a triple goddess in the invocation, but this is where you should substitute the names of the deities of your personal tradition.
Say:

 

Alban Heruin is a time of rededication
To the gods. The triple goddess watches over me.
She is known by many names.
She is the Morrighan, Brighid, and Cerridwen.
She is the washer at the ford,
She is the guardian of the hearth,
She is the one who stirs the cauldron of inspiration.
I give honor to You, O mighty ones,
By all your names, known and unknown.
Bless me with Your wisdom
And give life and abundance to me
As the sun gives life and abundance to the Earth.
I make this offering to you
To show my allegiance
To show my honor
To show my dedication
To You.

 

Cast your offering into fire. Conclude the ritual by saying:

 

Today, at Litha, I celebrate the life
And love of the gods
And of the Earth and Sun.

 

Take a few moments to reflect upon what you have offered, and what the gifts of the gods mean to you. When you are ready, if you have cast a circle, dismantle it or dismiss the quarters at this time. Allow your fire to go out on its own.

Ring of Fire Spell

May 20, 2017 @ 5:24 pm

                                              OakTree_Pentagram_Tattoo_by_Ralwor.jpg

Ring of Fire Spell

 

This spell is based on a little-known solar ritual from the Aegean islands. Long ago on the night before the Summer Solstice, hoops were set ablaze, and the villagers woudl guide the Sun’s return by jumping though rings of fire. You can create your own ring of fire with this spell. At dusk, outdoors if possible, light four candles of appropriate color, one for each season, in a circle. In the center place a gold or yellow candle for the Sun. Light the seasonal candles and say:

 

“Seasons must turn,
Let the Sun return.”

 

Light the Sun candle and say:

 

“Shining One,
Charge me with passion,
Turn my words into action.
It must be!”

 

Jump over your lit candles if you dare. Meditate on each Season and Thank the Sun for it’s return as you put out the candles.

Spell of the Day for Friday, March 17th - A Solitary Ostara Rite with Lore by Scott Cunningham (Part 1)

March 17, 2017 @ 9:40 pm

green-goddess-eva-thomas.jpg

A Solitary Ostara Rite with Lore

A traditional Vernal Equinox pastime: go to a field and randomly collect wildflowers.* Or, buy some from a florist, taking one or two of those that appeal to you. Then bring them home and divine their magical meanings by the use of books, your own intuition, a pendulum dulum or by other means. The flowers you've chosen reveal your inner thoughts and emotions.

 

It is important at this time of renewed life to plan a walk (or a ride) through gardens, a park, woodlands, forest and other green places. This is not simply exercise, and you should be on no other mission. It isn't even just an appreciation of nature. Make your walk celebratory, a ritual for nature itself.

 

A Sample of just a little of the Ostara Lore that will be found in this episode. Also a very, simple but elegant Ostara ritual to feel our Mother Earth awakening within our very fingertips.

 

Part 2 of this Spell of the Day will include how to do the Circle of Stones and also the Blessing Chant that is included in this ritual. We hope you enjoy this very special ritual and lore by one of the day's most prominent Pagan authors.
