Today marks the first day of summer, it is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and the shortest night- when the sun is directly over the equator.
Legends abound on the magical energies that take place on this day. Remember Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”? That was the energy of the summer solstice at play. This is a big time of celebration in many cultures, and the Pagan traditions which celebrate and worship Nature.
In honor of the day, and to work a little magic of your own,
Write on a piece of paper , the “seeds” you wish to plan to manifest later. What wishes will you make- think of what would bring you pleasure and joy? Get very specific about what you would like and jot it down.
Go outside, and in a fire-proof container (i use empty terracotta planters or
an ashtray or tin can) burn your note. When it has turned to ash, take the
ashes and plant them in your garden or in a container plant.
You have sent your energies “through the fire” for transmutation, and now you can dream of those wishes manifesting in their own perfect way for you
at the perfect time.
Happy Summer to you!
With love, blessing and magic,
