Yellow candle, fruit/nuts/candies, bell + anything standard

Do not light candles. Turn lights off. Cast circle.


Face the candles, and say:

The wheel of the year has turned once more,
and the nights have grown longer and colder.
Tonight, the darkness begins to retreat,
and light begins its return once again.
As the wheel continues to spin,
the sun returns to us once more.


Light the sun candle, and say:

Even in the darkest hours,
even in the longest nights,
the spark of life lingered on.
Laying dormant, waiting, ready to return
when the time was right.
The darkness will leave us now,
as the sun begins its journey home.


Light other candles and chant
As the wheel turns, light returns. The light of the sun has returned to us,
bringing life and warmth with it.
The shadows will vanish, and life will continue.
We are blessed by the light of the sun.

Take a moments to meditate and reflect on things.

When finish, extinguish the sun candle last.
Close the circle.
