In 2012 Witches will celebrate Midsummer, or the Summer Solstice on June 20. This is also a festival date on the Wheel of the Year. Half the year is now over and the steadily increasing hours of daylight will reach their peak before starting the slow descent towards winter.
Summer Solstice themes include spells celebrating and requesting strength, rewards, confidence and decision making.
Summer Solstice Correspondences
- colours are yellow, orange, red & gold
- flowers are honeysuckle, lavender, roses and vervain
- stones are agate, pearl and moonstone
- oils include lavender, vervain and cedar
Midsummer Food & Drink
An appropriate menu would include elderflower wine, tomato soup, cucumber salad, pesto pasta and lavender & herb shortbread.
Summer Solstice Spell for Direction
Set up your altar as usual and call to the Great Goddess to help you find direction and a resolution to your most pressing problems. We need to make a decision now before the long, hot days of summer slow us down and weaken our willpower. Remember to give thanks for the blessings you have received so far this year.
If you need more detailed information, recipes and a complete ritual for a Midsummer Direction and Resolution Spell can be found in my Wheel of the Year guide Simple Wiccan Magick Spells & Ritual Ceremony.
