[June 21st] is Litha, the Midsummer Sabbat, as well as Father's Day. It' a perfect day to celebrate the sacred masculine within all of us and to highlight the strong, warm, active power we all possess.
Create an altar with yellow candles, symbols of masculinity, and images of the Sun; include pictures of male relatives and admired men in your life. Cast a circle and stand before the altar, drawing on your power and strength.
Begin by speaking your feelings to the men pictured on the altar, emphasizing the qualities you admire. Light the yellow candles and call in the Sacred Masculine Divine. When he is present, stretch your arms upward to the sky and ask him to imbue you with the qualities that you admire. Feel that energy flow into your being and feel it mingle with your own energy.
Draw a deep breath and raise a cone of power in celebration of this masculine power in the universe and within you. Chant, starting softly and ending very loudly:
In the season of the Sun
I find wonder, strength, and power
Wonder, strength, and power
Power, power, power
