Lady Beltane: I call upon the Guardians of Spirit to protect us from above and below!I

Lady Beltane: I cast this circle three times three with the help of The Triple Goddess and The Horned God. To take to a place that is not a place to a time that is not in time. To let us see beyond the 3-D plane will live upon. I ask the protection of the Maiden, Mother, Crone and Horned God for of us gathered here and for those of our brothers and sisters not able to join our circle tonight that nothing negative can touch us. That nothing we call upon can harm others!

Lady Beltane: We come together in perfect love and perfect trust. Merry Meet Brothers, Sisters, and Honored Guest.

EVERYONE: Merry greet

EVERYONE: Using your pen write down one goal you want to work on during this season of growth to come to fruition by the last of the harvest Sabbats (Samhain). When done fold your paper three times then engrave your candle with your goal. Light the candle than using it to start the paper burning. Please paper in the fireproof dish before it reaches your fingertips so as not to get burned. Burn candle for about a half-hour to an hour daily until it is burned all the way down. Then break it into small pieces and bury until all the while thinking of the goal you made it for.

EVERYONE: Once your paper is completely ash. Type in “This is my will! So mote it be!”

We will take 2 minutes for you to gaze into your candle and think about your goal and visualize it going out into the Universe to be heard by your guides, the gods and goddesses for them to help your goal come to fruition.

After the ritual is over scatter the ashes in the wind. This again helps take your goal go out into the Universe to help it come to fruition.

Burn the candle every day after the ritual for 1/2 to 1 hour until it burns completely down. While the candle burns see your goal as being completed. Then break up the remaining wax and bury it outside when your goal is complete.

EVERYONE: Using only your first name and state or country please introduce yourself. When everyone is finished welcome each by using the words ” Blessed be. ”

A Thought for Today

Image result for pagan beauty of nature

I was sitting in my backyard early this morning with my two familiars and first, the dew on the grass caught my eye as the dew sparkled like tiny diamonds. Then I looked to the sky and was amazing by the gossamer tendrils of clouds and the cotton like ones that had spaces in them reminding of small lakes. I closed my eyes and heard the morning brids sing their beautiful song. I could not help but feel the blessings of nature all around me that came out to show me wonders I would have never seen if I did not feel the call of Mother Earth.

Blessed be dear ones.

Today is the Feast of Mary Magdalene

Now I know some of you reading this are wondering why I would announce a Catholic saint’s feast day on a pagan website. Wel for me and many others Mary Magdalene is not just a Catholic saint she is also the embodiment of a mother Goddess of love and acceptance that was incarnated many centuries ago and lives on along with all the other Mother Goddesses. SHe is right there with Isis, Mother Earth, Bridgit, and many others. I just got through attending a four-day online summit with some very knowledgeable women giving their insights to this wonderful lady. This is the last day of the summit but I believe you can still register to get access to all the material until next July. Here id=s the link for the summit: Mary Magdalene SUmmit

May love and peace be with you today and always my dear ones. Blessed be
