On a Friday night under a waxing moon, burn the red candle. Take the soft, melted wax drips and form a heart shape, adding the vervain pinch by pinch.

As you do so, repeat softly:

Wax to heart thou art transformed
Two be one, and love be warmed.

Before it cools, press the stone into the wax heart and set it inside the wooden box.

Place some vervain on the incense charcoal. Close the box and touch it with your athame, saying:

Diana, beautiful Diana,
Call thy daughter Aradia
And send her to the bedside
Of one who could be my beloved
Of one who could be my lover.
Let that lover come
Like a swift hunting hound
Running in the moonlight.
Come to me, come to me,
Led by the scents of love
By the aid of Regina Fata Diana
And of her daughter, Fata Aradia,
As I will, so mote it be.

Extinguish the red candle. Leave the wax heart in the box. Tuck it away where the box will not be disturbed by others.

Annoint and atire yourself lovingly. Be open to love and loving.

The lover will come as a swift hunting hound, because Diana ever has a dog by her side.

6/28/2007 - Embracing the Sun

Posted in Ritual

The Sun for obvious reason has held a posistion of great reverance and worship, for it is one of the key light giving forces, needed to sustain us all. Usually it is seen as a male God counterpart to the Moon Goddess figure. There is a long history of many cultures preforming Sun greeting rituals with the sunrise each morning.

To take into yourself the power of the Sun preform this ritual

Go outdoors and greet the sunrise by streaching tall and wide. Take three deep breaths, inhaling the light and power of the Sun and exhaling them back out into the world. Realize that as the Sun is the center of our solar system and all of the planets reflect its light, so you are the center of your world, and all others around you will respond to your light. Resolve to shine brightly on this day and say "Hail! I greet thee, radiant Sun, pour forth thy light on me. I will shine with peace and love toward everyone I see! (If the day is cloudy you can always visualize the Sun knowing that the light is within)
