Is anyone doing anything for the summer solstice?

I do not really have a specific path that I follow, so I am curious to know what a more structured practitioner might have planned :)
I have a window over my bath tub, so I was thinking of doing a nice ritual bath with some products that I have made while the sun shines in.

Intent - Purpose - Method - Execution. Those are the pillars for a successful ritual. I think you're only thinking of the execution so far.

I'm not doing shit on it. Solstice rituals are more up the alleys of witchcraft and derivatives. Several transformation rituals stretch from solstice to solstice in Hermetics too but I'm too lazy to undertake them but perhaps you'd be interested in starting those.

I’m honestly not all that structured either, tbh. Though in previous years when I tried to get more into doing something for those points of the year, I did a couple things. Took a leaf off my lemon tree, put it in a water bottle and let it sit. Poured that onto the ground as a sort of solar-charged offering. I also used the opportunity to put together a protection amulet that I could wear, as supposedly related workings get a boost from midsummer.

I personally sometimes find it harder to really get into midsummer or other summer-specific ritual work, at least compared to cooler parts of the year. It gets so hot here, and when the sun starts to make even native plants droop, it’s really hard to understand the whole “peak of life and light” theme.

My idea of a ritual to mark any of the Big 8 is to change the wreath on my door and cook something that seems vaguely appropriate. This year, it was rose pancakes for breakfast and chicken curry for dinner. 😄
Definitely sounds like you can cook better than I can. XD

Well, maybe not a Summer Solstice, but what I am currently doing right now is blessing the Water. I think it is so important to treat Water with respect, kindness, and Love. Whether, you bless it while you drink it, or bathe in it. Water can do so many things that we are not even aware of, and Water is beautiful. I am a Pisces, so that makes me a Water Element. In the past, I used to tuned Water Out. Until, I finally began to see how important Water is. So, what I do is before I drink the water, I bless it first and give my respect to Her. Yes, I call Water a Her. Many blessings!! and Love you All.

As somebody who's very imbalanced toward the fiery side of things, this is a lesson I am painfully familiar with. XD
