Sun Day - is the Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal...  there are minor magickal energies for working with animals today.

Animal Healing Spell

   Magickal healing is not just for humans; our pets and other animal friends can also benefit. As with all healing you should still consider whether professional help is needed and you should also be careful not to prolong pain or suffering.
    For this spell you will need to gather a couple of hairs from the animal in question; a gentle brush should provide you with plenty. If the 'patient' in question is a bird collect a feather from its cage, and for a fish take a few drops of water from its aquarium and place them on a small piece of tissue. Take a brown candle and write on it the name of the animal (use an old pencil), then using a little melted wax attach the hairs, feather of tissue about half way down. Place the candle in a secure holder and light it saying: "As the candle burns may sickness depart, as the hairs light let healing come in. Blessed Be."
Watch the candle burn while visualizing and focusing on your animal friend getting better. If you pet is very poorly you may like to repeat this spell at the next Full Moon.
"No-one who deliberately harms
an animal will never be a true Witch."
