Embrace the vibrant energy of the Summer Solstice, a time of fiery passion, radiant joy, and unrivalled potential.

This quick, fun, and invigorating ritual will help you connect with the magickal essence of the longest day of the year.

Get ready to bask in the sun's glory, absorb its vibrant energy, and dance to the rhythm of your own magickal spirit!


Ritual Steps

1. Solar Sanctuary
Choose a suitable outdoor space where you can feel the sun's warmth.

This could be your garden, a nearby park, or even your balcony.

Decorate this sacred space with symbols of summer – sunflowers, brightly coloured ribbons, or crystals like sunstone or citrine.


2. Fire Ignition
 If possible, light a small fire or candle symbolising the sun at its peak.

As you light it, visualise the sun's powerful and radiant energy filling your being and your surroundings.


3. Sundrenched Affirmation
Stand tall, close your eyes, and turn your face towards the sun (please ensure to protect your eyes).

Recite a bold affirmation such as,

    'I am radiant, powerful, and filled with boundless joy and passion!'

Repeat this affirmation at least three times, allowing the words to soak into your soul like the sun's rays warming your skin.


4.  Sun's Dance
Now comes the fun part – it's time to dance!

Allow your body to move freely, as if the sun's rays are guiding your movements.

Feel the joy and power of the summer solstice coursing through your veins, encouraging you to let loose and enjoy this moment of celebration.


5. Gratitude to the Sun
As your dance slows, take a moment to express gratitude to the sun for its abundant energy and the life it sustains.

You might say something like, 'Thank you, bold sun, for your radiant energy that nurtures, energises, and ignites my spirit.'


6. Sacred Reflection 
After your ritual, sit down and reflect on your experience.

Journal any insights, emotions, or sensations that emerged during the ritual. How do you feel?

What intentions do you want to set for the rest of the summer season?


This enchanting Summer Solstice ritual is a chance to truly connect with the sun's vibrant energy and celebrate the magick within you.

So, get ready to bask in the radiant light of your own spirit, soaking up the magick of the Summer Solstice in all its glory!
