Summer Solstice (Litha) for 2023 is on Sunday, June 21 at 10:58 PM EDT. That's the moment when the sun stands still and listens - and a perfect moment for a special spell. Now in all magical workings from the dawn of time, the Sun has had a special place as the single most powerful physical existence in our lives. Sun magic, one might say, is therefore the most powerful form of magic if you want to make changes in the material world.
3 Suns Solstice Spell
The first thing we need is a small fire.
Fire is "of the Sun" - it is the human ability to light the night, to bring light to darkness, a reflection of the sun, and whenever you light a magic fire, even a candle, you are evoking the Sun power, whether you know this or not.
So we'll light a fire.
Now we'll have three circles with the spiral painted or drawn on it to represent the Sun in its three meanings - power, wealth and love.
Don't discriminate against any of them or hold any of them more dear than any of the others; of course they all need to work together, be as one for any one of them to be what you hope it to become.
When you make these three discs - from paper, card, round slices of a tree branch, whatever you choose to use - focus on one of the three aspects of the power/wealth/love trinity at a time and allow yourself to really want *that* with all your heart. Draw the spiral on your disc.
When you have all three, switch them around until you no longer know which one is which - or witch one is witch! - and then you're ready to wait for the moment.
As the time approaches for the moment when the Sun stands still to listen, and you are by your fire, pay attention to the Sun.
*If you are somewhere where the sun is not in the sky at this time, tune into the sun. You can feel where it is even when you can't see it, even through the Earth if it is on the other side. It's actually awesome the way that works and a wonderful thing in and of itself.
For effect, I would use an accelerant on the discs, some essential oils as an extra offering to the Sun which sent its power to grow the plants from which they came, Lemon, Lotus and Elemi or such and at the moment of the Solstice, throw the three discs into the fire where they will transmute, unite and become one and the same.
I personally would follow that with a moment of connecting with the sun, with the fire, as a human being with the forces of the Universe and our acts that create ritual reflections of these forces to be a part of all of that, a friend and lover to the Sun, to the fire, and to the existence here and now.
This is a powerful spell/ritual and actually very easy to do; if you know how to EmoTrance and have a sense of that, you can get a fabulous energized end state which is an event of evolution - what each energy magician truly seeks each time they perform any ritual or spell.
I trust you found some inspiration for a Solstice Spell or Ritual of your own; don't let the magic moment pass you by and do *something* that feels good and right to you.
Happy Solstice to you!

Solstice Water (Sun Water) Make your Solstice water, the most potent Sun water of the year, leaving water in a gold coloured dish surrounded by golden-coloured flowers from dusk on the Solstice Eve until Noon on the Longest Day. This is especially healing and empowering and you can keep it in clear glass or gold coloured bottles to drink or add to bath water to give you energy and confidence.
How to make a FLOWER ESSENCE:
~Go out and tune in to the flower you are resonating with! It’s best to just pick one flower and make one essence at a time. Use your intuition to feel whether or not you have permission to pick the flowers. ~Place your flowers in a small glass bowl with Spring water. Let it sit in direct sunlight for 3-4 hours, enough for the sun’s rays into help the energy of the flower expand vibrationally into the water. ~Strain the flowers with filter paper or strainer and pour into a bottle or jar. Half fill your jar with your water and then add the same amount (fill the other half) with brandy or vodka to preserve it. The essence you have left over, you can either drink or return it to the Earth as an offering of gratitude! ~Then cap your jar, label the flower and date and voila you have your “MOTHER” essence! With this you can get a little dropper bottle and fill 1/4 way with brandy or vodka and then simply add 2 or 3 drops of your “MOTHER” essence into the your dropper bottle. The amazing thing about flower essences is that since it’s vibrational medicine a few drops is all it takes to carry the energy signature of the flower.
This dropper bottle is what you can then use by adding a few drops into your water to sip or spritz through the day! And voila you can have your “Solstice Flower Essence” You can look up the energy that certain flowers carry too but I would suggest to do this after you choose your flower so it’s more instinctual! I would love to hear if you make this ;)! And if you plan to drink your flower essences, DO check to make sure it is safe (such as rose, violets, pansies, calendula, etc.) A great reference chart is at: http://homecooking.about.com/library/weekly/blflowers.htm
(***Oh and one final word is be conscious of how your body feels after you start using it. They are very gentle and safe to use but they move things energetically so pay attention, use your intuition and your discretion!
