Rejoicing in the Sun 

 

The following ritual is for use at any time of day (1). Altar is on North wall. Breath deeply while spinning rapidly in the same direction in which the Sun traverses the sky, deosil, arms outstretched with left palm down, right palm up. Stop abruptly facing the Sun, keeping "star position," arms outward, legs well apart. Breath deeply. Put legs together, raise arms skyward and apart forming a V, resembling the Life Rune, palms facing up, inhale deeply and say at:

Thou who befriendeth Freya in thy rising!"

Footnotes:

1. This is adapted from the Egyptian ritual performed in the temple of the sun at Anu in the time of Ahknaton.
 
An  excellent Solar Dawn ritual from the Asatru Alliance is the following Greeting To Suna:
"Greetings to thee, bright Suna, lamp of Odin newly-risen! Hail to thee who hast shed light and warmth to all our ancestors, who shines on us now, and who will shine on our descendants yet unborn! Share with me some of your light and power this day, that I may better fight my battles and attain my goals!"
 
2. Blow horn instead, once to each quarter, if subject is kin. Not necessary to repeat horn at end.
 
3. Include here enumeration of titles and any amount of descriptive praise deemed appropriate.
 
4. This involves assuming any posture the practitioner may identify with, from any representation of Odin  that he may remember, while breathing deeply. This is to embrace Magickal power.
 
5. Always turn deosil. Start facing North. With athame or sword, trace a circle around the proceedings at ground level visualizing this as a wall of white flame. Standing with back to the North, trace Cross of Wotan-Thor's Hammer in white flame as a  ceiling above.
 
6. If joint purpose amongst kin, horn instead, once to each quarter.  Horn not necessary at end.
 
7. Practitioner should write his own.
