One element that has proved exceptionally powerful for me is solar magic – using the energy and power of the sun in spells and rituals.
Solar magic has been revered and utilized in various spiritual and magical traditions for centuries. It’s not hard to see why – the sun is a source of life, warmth, and light. In witchcraft, we can tap into the energies of the sun to bring about positive change, increase personal power, and manifest our desires.
But how can you incorporate solar magic into your practice? Here are some ideas to get you started:

#1: Utilize solar correspondences in spells and rituals
Similar to how every planet and element has its correspondences, the sun also has its own symbols and energies that you can utilize in your magic.
Some common solar correspondences include the colors gold and yellow, the herbs marigold and St. John’s wort, and the stones citrine and topaz.
Incorporating these elements into your spells can amplify their power and draw upon the energies of the sun.
#2: Perform spells and rituals at sunrise or sunset
The times of sunrise and sunset are especially potent for solar magic as they mark the transition from one phase of the sun’s cycle to another.
Performing spells and rituals at these times can help align your energy with the sun’s, making your magic even more effective.
#3: Create a solar altar
Just like you might have an altar dedicated to a particular deity or purpose, you can create a solar altar as a focus for your solar magic.
This can be as simple as setting up a small table or shelf with solar correspondences or a more elaborate setup with candles, incense, and other items.
#4: Work with solar deities
Many cultures have deities associated with the sun, and you can work with these deities in your solar magic.
Some examples include the Egyptian god Ra, the Greek god Apollo, and the Native American god Tawa. Invoking these deities in your spells and rituals can add an extra layer of power and intention.
#5: Charge and activate crystals with sunlight
Crystals are excellent tools for focusing and amplifying energy, and you can use the sun’s energy to charge and activate them for your solar magic.
Simply place your crystals in a sunny window or outside in the sunlight for a few hours, and then use them in your spells and rituals as desired.
#6: Solar magic and manifestation
One area where solar magic can be particularly effective is manifestation. The sun is associated with growth and abundance, making it the perfect energy to tap into when trying to bring about positive change in your life.
To use solar magic for manifestation, try setting an intention for what you want to manifest and perform a ritual at sunrise or sunset.
You can incorporate solar correspondences, like the ones mentioned above, and work with solar deities to amplify the power of your intention.
#7: Solar magic and personal power
In addition to manifestation, solar magic can also be used to increase your personal power. The sun is a symbol of strength and vitality, and by
drawing upon its energies, you can tap into those qualities within yourself.
To use solar magic for personal power, try performing a ritual at sunrise or sunset to align your energy with the suns. You can also incorporate solar correspondences and work with solar deities to help boost your own strength and vitality.
#8: Solar magic and protection
To use solar magic for protection, try performing a ritual at sunrise or sunset and incorporating solar correspondences like salt and white candles.
#9: Solar magic and divination
Divination is another area where solar magic can be particularly useful. The sun is associated with clarity and enlightenment, making it a natural choice for divination practices.
To use solar magic for divination, try setting up a solar altar with divination tools like tarot cards or a crystal ball.
Perform your divination practice at sunrise or sunset to tap into the sun’s energies, and incorporate solar correspondences like the color yellow to help bring about clarity and enlightenment.
#10: Solar magic and healing
Finally, solar magic can also be used for healing. The sun is associated with vitality and strength, and by drawing upon its energies, you can help to boost the healing process.
To use solar magic for healing, try performing a ritual at sunrise or sunset and incorporating solar correspondences like the color gold and the stone citrine.
You can also work with solar deities like Apollo or Ra to help amplify the healing energies of your spell.
Incorporating solar magic into your practice can bring a wealth of benefits, from manifestation and personal power to protection, divination, and healing.
So why not give it a try and see what the power of the sun can do for you?
