Celebrate the Summer Solstice (also known as Midsummer or Litha) by making a natural crystal grid. You can use it to channel the sun's energy and supercharge your crystals.
Use fresh or dried flowers to create a natural crystal grid and supercharge your crystals. I used dried calendula to charge carnelian and orange calcite. I chose these flowers and crystals because of their beautiful, bright colors and their associations with the sun. Feel free to use whichever flowers and crystals you prefer.
1. Choose a spot of soil that gets plenty of light and carve a circle into the soil.
2. Make a cross shape in the middle of the circle to create a solar cross.
3. Add flowers to the solar cross. You can add the flowers to outline the cross or place them anywhere you like (perhaps at key points on the grid or to fill the inner spaces). How you create the grid is a personal process, and you should design it in a way that resonates with you.
4. Place your crystals on the grid to charge. You can be creative with the placement of the crystals as well. Leave the crystals in place to charge until the sun sets.
5. Recite the incantation.
"Midsummer’s spell has now been spun
Glinting in the solstice sun
Enchant these crystals with Litha’s power
Before daylight meets its final hour."
