Juneteenth, celebrated today, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. This year the holiday falls on the same day as Father’s Day, which is celebrated every third Sunday of June. On the conjunction of these two holidays, we can’t help but think of all the fathers who were taken from their children as a result of racial injustices such as slavery, lynchings, and police brutality.
Set up a small candle on your altar (or wherever you do your magickal work) and say:
I light this candle that all fathers may
As you light your candle, reflect on what you can do to make these words a reality. Extinguish the candle.
