Endurance ritual

This is a beautiful Summer Solstice Ritual from my Memtor, High Priestess Lady Beltane

Coven Life®

(From Hearth & Home Witchery)

1. Write your birth-sign on a small stone in permanent pen

2. In a large flower pot, place the stone at the bottom.

3. Plant a marigold on top, placing seven stones around the plant.

As you work, chant:

“Sing me the song of seasons
Show me the sun’s delight
Open my heart for you radiance
Lead me towards the light”

The marigold is the flower of endurance that always
turns its face toward the sun, following its path
through the sky. This ritual will give you endurance.
