Dark Moon Ritual

Needed:

  • Broom
  • Spell supplies
  • Drink
  • Food

Preparation of Space
“With this broom, tool of our will, we do cleanse, purify and prepare our spaces. From these circles now we banish all fear, malice and misfortune, that these circles may be a fit meeting place for the Goddess and Gods and those attending here tonight.
As I do will, so mote it be.”

Cast Circle
“Thrice about the circle is cast. Let nothing remain within save that which is in accord with our will and the intent if this rite. This is a place that is not a place, a time that is not a time, between the worlds and beyond. Let all be welcome who would share the blessings of this ritual.
So mote it be."

Calling the Quarters for the New Moon
“Darksome night and shining moon,
East, South, West, and North;
Hearken to the Witches' Rune,
Here we come to call ye forth!
Earth and water, air and fire,
Wand and pentacle and sword,
Work ye unto our desire,
Hearken ye unto our work!
Cords and censer, and knife,
Powers of the Witch's blade
Waken all ye into life,
Come ye as the magick is made!
Blessed Be!”

Goddess Invocation
“White moon mother, come to us as love to lover. In the moonlight shining bright, we call to you by will and right. Magic and wisdom, secrets you bear, honor we give you, knowledge to share. Within this circle we have made a place, be here with us and show us grace. Bright one, be welcome.
Blessed be!"

God Invocation
“Horned hunter, come to us with joy and wonder. You who offer death and return, we call to you with hearts that burn. Yours the law and yours the choosing, and yours the wild hunt's grand career. We welcome you freely, our guest and our master, you teach us not to be trapped within fear. Within this circle our hearts are open, be here with us Horned one, be welcome.
Blessed be!"

“Now is the time for weaving our wills. As the Gods and Goddesses lend us their strength, we draw it into for our use. We cast our energies into the universe to create our destinies as we would have them be."

Chant
“Feel the magick in the air
Done with love by those who care.
Feel the magick in the air.
Done with love by those who care.
Feel the Magick in the air.
Done with love by those who care.

At this time please release your energy into the universe!”

At this time please use what ever is familiar to you to ground.

Celebration of the Simple Feast
Hold up your drink:
“Lady Goddess,
Mother of us all.
Bless this drink,
filling it with your love.
In all the names of the mother and the father,
We bless this drink to our use."

Hold up your food:
“Father of the harvest and us all,
Bless this food,
Filling it with your love.
In all the names of the mother and the father,
We bless this food to our use."

Thank the Lady and Lord
“Lord and lady, We are blessed by your sharing this time with us, watching and guarding us, and guiding us here and in all things.
We came in love and We depart in love.”

Thanking the Quarters
“North, West, South and East
Beings and powers of the visible and invisible,
depart in peace!
You aid in our work, whisper in our mind,
and bless us from the Otherworlds,
and there is harmony between us.

Your blessings we take with us
as you take our love and
thanks with you.

Blessings have been given
and blessings have been received
and may the peace of the Goddess and the God
remain in our hearts.
So mote it be!”
