Litha Spell

I read about a candle spell on the web somewhere where you used the symbol of the triskele to ask for wealth, happiness and love at midsummer. I decided to tweak it a bit and make it more mine.

What you need:

  • A bowl
  • (Sun)water
  • A bit of honey
  • (Yellow) flowers, buttercups are best!
  • Gold glitter
  • 3 floating candles

What you do:

  • Prepare for the ritual how you normally do (smoke cleanse, shower, cast a circle, whatever gets you in touch with your magic)
  • Pour the sunwater into the bowl, enough that the candles and the flowers will float.
  • Place the candles into the water, but don’t light them yet.
  • Focus for a moment on bees. Think on them, on what they do. They work very hard and protect the hive. Think on those qualities within yourself.
  • Pour a bit of honey into the water and say: “Sacred bees, makes of gold. Providers for hearth and home, I ask you for wealth and prosperity”. Now light the first candle.
  • Focus for a moment on flowers. Think on them, what they represent. They grow and bloom and spread colour and happiness everywhere. Think on those qualities within yourself.
  • Place the flowers into the bowl and say: “Sacred flowers of meadow and forest. You who spread colour and joy, I ask you for luck and happiness.” Now light the second candle.
  • Focus for a moment on the Sun. Think on it’s power and radiance. It’s warmth and the feelings of summer. The way it shines and brings feelings of love to all it touches.
  • Sprinkle some glitter onto the water and say: “Sacred Sun, wise and ancient. You whose gilded rays reveal beauty. I ask you to fill my heart with love for all that I am.” Now light the third candle.
  • Sit for a while and look at the candles. Let their light warm you.
  • If you perform this with a group, have one candle per person instead. Place the honey, flowers and glitter in the bowl while reciting the spell and then light your candle.
