Don't forget the sun...


I think sometimes as a witch the moon tends to get pride of place and the sun perhaps takes a back seat?  But it is an incredibly powerful source of natural energy and magic.

The sun is a very strong masculine energy that balances with the feminine energy of the moon.

Sunshine rays can be used to charge tools and crystals, to cleanse and purify pretty much any object or even yourself and focused through a magnifying glass onto paper or dry leaves it can even create fire.

And just like the moon the sun has phases which can be used to tie in with your magical workings to add an extra boost of power:

Sunrise – Basically when the sun wakes up and peers over the horizon.  This phase is all about new beginnings, changes, health, employment, renewal and finding the right direction it can also be very cleansing.

The morning – This is when the sun is growing in strength so it brings the magical power for growth, positive energy, resolutions, courage, harmony, happiness, strength, activity, building projects and plans, prosperity and expansion of ideas.

High noon – When the sun reaches its peak in the sky at midday – work magic for health, physical energy, wisdom and knowledge and is also a good time to pop your tools or crystals out that need charging.  (Note: some crystals can fade in strong sunlight so check first before putting them out).

The afternoon – The sun is heading back down and the energy now is good for working on business matters, communication, clarity, travel, exploring and anything professional.

Sunset – As the sun takes itself off down below the horizon work magic for removing depression, stress and confusion, letting go, releasing or finding out the truth of a situation.

And just as there is a tradition of drawing down the moon and her power into your body you can do the same with the sun.   Stand outside on a sunny day at the time of day of your choosing. Make yourself comfortable with your arms thrown open wide.  Allow the energy and warmth of the sun to enter your body, filling your with energy.   Either feel the energy entering your body through your hands and running through your veins to every body part or visualise breathing in the sun energy through your mouth.  When you feel that you are finished remember to thank the sun.

Rachel is a witch...has been for a very long time, not the green skinned warty kind obviously...the real sort - but she is also a working wife and mother living in Hampshire, England who has also been lucky enough to write and have published a growing stack of books on the Craft. She loves to learn she loves to study and continues to do so each and every day but has learned the most from actually getting outside and doing it. She regularly gives talks and workshops at pagan events. Rachel is also founder and an Elder at the Kitchen Witch online school of witchcraft. She likes to laugh...and eat cake...
