Midsummer Ritual I found this at The Goddess Unites Us
A Golden Yellow Altar Cloth,
Small Cloth Pouch of Summertime Herbs,
1c Fresh Spring Water,
Red Sun God Candle,
Green Earth Goddess Candle,
Summer Blend Incense (Jasmine, Rose, Lotus, Wysteria, or combination).
Sweep area moving in deosil manor. Set up Quarter Candles and any accessories symbolizing the Elements of the Quarters. Decorate the altar with seasonal flowers, especially Sunflowers. Prepare your Pouch of Summertime Herbs, and as you make it, pour your troubles, pains, sorrows, illness, and regrets into it. Place the Cauldron in the center of your altar, the Red Sun candle to the right of it , the Green Goddess Candle to the left of it. Place the cup of Fresh Spring Water in front of the Goddess Candle.
Take a shower or bath for purification.Sit quietly and meditate for a while, then ground and center. When ready, play some peaceful music for the ritual.
Cast the circle....
Pick up your Wand, and with arms upraised, face South and say:
Face the altar, put down your wand, and light the Green Goddess Candle to the left of your cauldron, saying:
Light the Red Sun God Candle to the right of your cauldron, saying:
Take the Herb Pouch and hold above your head, saying:
Hold the pouch over your main altar Candle to take flame. While it is burning, drop it in the cauldron, saying:
Visualize the negatives burning away to nothingness. When all that is left is ashes, douse the ashes with the cup of Fresh Spring Water, feel as if the water were being poured over you and your negatives washed away. Air dry by dancing and running your hands up and down your arms, body, and legs. Don't forget your head, lay it back and shake running your fingers through your hair. When done, face the altar, wave your hand over the cauldron and say;
Pass your cupped hands over the cauldron, pausing briefly each time to "pour" in wishes for health, prosperity, and good fortune to be part of your life. Dip the forefinger of your right hand into the cauldron water, and trace a pentagram on your forehead, saying:
Anoint your lips saying:
"Let my lips always speak the truth."
Anoint your heart area, saying:
"Let my heart seek the ways of the Goddess, now and always."
Anoint the centers of your palms, saying:
"Let my hands be gifted to work in magical ways."
Anoint the soles of your feet, saying:
"Let my feet ever walk upon the sacred paths!"
Now is the time for meditation and any spell workings. MidSummer spellworkings include: prosperity, fertility, and plentiful harvests. Finish by having the Cakes and Ale Ceremony and releasing the circle. Clean up. You are done.
