This evening in the Northern Hemisphere celebrating Samhain your ritual was written by  Coven Life and Witches of The Craft High Priestess Lady Beltane who will also lead it.

Everyone is welcomed to do both the Samhain and Beltane rituals no matter which hemisphere you live in. As the Beltane ritual uses planting of seeds for part of it those in the Northern Hemisphere might want to empower the package of seeds write down the goals and then plant them in the spring and carry on with the rest of the ritual then.

WHEN and WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Look for which Hemisphere you live in:

For the Northern Hemisphere the coven gathering for Samhain will be on Wednesday, October 30th with the social hour will be at 6:00 to 6:55 PM CDT with the circle being cast at 7:00 PM CDT

Samhain is a time for remembering those who have crossed the veil into the Summerlands before us. It is also celebrates the last harvest of the year, with anything not picked or gathered left on the trees, plants, and bushes for the wildlife and Fea Folk to help them through the cold months. Lastly if you follow the Celtic calendar (as we do with the Wheel of the Year celebrating the 8 Sabbats) it is last day of the year. This is the time of year that belongs to the Crone for life and death and rebirth in the spring.
I decorate my altar with a small loaf of homemade bread, a small pumpkin or gourds, fall leaves from my yard and pictures or mementos of my ancestors. Please keep in mind when thinking of ancestors that they do not have to be blood related , they can be anyone who has had a significant place in your life such as teachers, coaches, friends, a boss, etc.
Decide on 2 Ancestors you want to bring into our circle to visit with during the ritual
(SIDE NOTE FROM LADY B: you can set up an ancestors altar for October 31st to honor more of you ancestors if you wish to. I will do a post with some sample pictures for those of you who have not done this before. If you have a question(s) about the altar please write it or them in the comment section as others may have the same question(s))
Something comfortable to sit on for approximately 10 minutes and while the Beltane ritual is being done
2 – 4 inch White Candles
2 Candle holders
A SAFE place to put the burning candles as you will be leaving them to burn all the way down
Atheme, or Ceremonial Knife or Any Sharp Object to carve 1 name onto each candle
Matches or Lighter
Wine, or Fruit Juice or Water
1 Serving of Some type of an Apple or Pumpkin Dessert
2 Small Dishes or folded up Paper Towels
Lady Beltane: I walk this circle three times three as the Maiden and Crone walk with me. To celebrate a time of death and a time of rebirth. I take us from this Earthly plane and time to a place where this is no time and we are kept safe from everyday problems and fears.
EVERYONE: Please introduce yourself with just your 1st Name or your Pagan Name and the State or Country you live in do not put your town in.

This is the time for the Samhain ritual to start, The Beltane ritual will follow

Lady Beltane:  We call upon the Crone and the keeper of the veil between our physical world and the spirit world to lower the veil so we may visit with the ancestors we call upon.
EVERYONE: You will say this incantation 3 times individually for each ancestor. As you are chanting this spell write the name of the person on the candle and light it at the end of the 3rd time as you say, “So Mote It Be”
                       Name of your Ancestor I call to thee
                        Name of your Ancestor I honor thee
                        Name of your Ancestor Come to me
Place a small bite of your fall sweet and pour a couple of drops of your beverage on to it than place this as an offering to the ancestor by placing it in front of their candle either in a small dish or on a a paper towel fold a few times. Now sit quietly as in meditation feel the energy your ancestors brings with them and ask your ancestors questions or tell them a story you remember about the two of you or whatever you want to talk to them about. You will have 10 minutes of visiting time.
At the end of the 10 minutes Lady Beltane will type in done.
EVERYBODY:  Name of the Ancestor you call forth from the Spirit Plane I thank you for                                visiting me
                          Name of the Ancestor you call forth from the Spirit Plane one day I will                                   walk  with you there
                        Name of the Ancestor you call forth from the Spirit Plane I miss thee
                        Name of the Ancestor you call forth from the Spirit Plane until that time you                           go back and I stay here
When you are done type in So Mote It Be.

This is the end of the Samhain ritual. It is now time for the Beltane ritual to start.

If you live in the Southern Hemisphere and would be attending for the Beltane ritual please let me know if you will be attending or not please. If I do not hear from you by 8:00 PM AEDT on your Wednesday 30 October I will not plan on us doing the Beltane ritual. The Beltane gathering will be on Thursday, 31 October with the social part of the gathering starting at 10:00 to 10:55 AM AEDT with the circle cast at 11:00 AM AEDT.

Pillow and/or Blanket for Meditation or something comfortable to sit on for a total of approximately 20 minutes and why the Samhain ritual is being done

Paper and Pen

Packet of Flower or Herb Seeds
Wine or Fruit Juice or Water
Some kind of Sweet Treat
Beltane is a time when you can feel the ground coming to full life.  It is a fertility holiday, but there is so much to that word!  It is creativity, possibility.  It is the vibrance of a new relationship, the inspiration of a new project, the challenge of a new adventure.  It is the day we set things in motion, but the world itself is already in motion.  It’s growing, blooming – filling the ground with green, the trees with leaves, and the air with new smells and possibilities.
On this day we leave the passive time of year, where we rest, learn, and recuperate, and begin the active time of the year.  While the world is drunk on possibility, we embark on our own journey for the upcoming year.  When we do this, we take all the lessons of the year before, all the plans we’ve been assembling, and we embark on a new start.  But stating our intention helps.
I ask you to take time now to ponder the lessons you learned over this last winter.  Pick up your own story, and really look at it.  What is the next step for you?  What is it about this world that challenges you, excites you, pushes you to be more than you were before?  Rather than picturing what you want to accomplish specifically, instead imagine what would feel like home, belonging.  What is the scent of perfection in your own personal world?
It is easy to hide from the real goals we all wish to set, but I invite you to challenge yourself.  Take a moment to sit with me now.
EVERYONE: We are allowing 15 minutes for you to answer the questions below. But remember you can always go back and follow the ritual High Priestess Beth has written here to add to your answers at anytime. Pull up a blanket or pillow to allow you to comfortably sit on the ground, or rest on the earth itself if that’s an easy option.  Feel the earth beneath you, the air around you, and invite all of you into this moment.
Take a deep breath, and feel yourself fill up with the living energy.  Feel your soul breathe, as well as your body.
Take another deep breath.  Relax, and comfort yourself.  Be a good companion to yourself – greet this person who is you, and be kind to him or her.  Welcome him or her into this moment.
Take an even deeper breath, and hold it for a longer moment.  Ask every part of you to be honest, comfortable, and present, relaxed completely.
Sitting with yourself, ask that person who is all of you – what do you want?
What would you love to be, to do, to feel?
What would “accomplishment” feel like to you?
Feel the world growing around you, even right now, and allow the energy beneath and around you to fill you.
How will the next year unfold in a way to help that happen?
How can you help yourself to get there?
Are you brave enough to get there, from here?
Relax deeply into this moment as you listen to your inner honesty.  Whether you see images unfolding, feel a certainty, imagine words, or simply know that certain plans are going to work – stop for a moment.
Take a piece of paper now and write down what you discussed with your inner self. Feel no fear as you set your goals.  Be open and honest about everything you’ve witnessed internally.   Take short notes for now – you can fill in all necessary details later, so long as you remember all the pieces.  If you would like, you can share a couple of words here that sum up what you want to aim for.  If not, be sure to tell us “done” once you’ve got your short notes recorded.
Now take your packet of seeds – and hold them in your hands. Charge them with the intention of what you want from this upcoming year.  Picture the end result from your intentions. Fill the seeds with your energy, so that you can feel them ready to grow.
Now, as we finish our Beltane rite, picture the daily reality of seeking these goals.  Prepare yourself for the actual doing of it.   Pray to the divine as you picture this.  Ask them to help indicate anything you can prepare for, look out for.
Other questions to ask yourself as you journal or meditating on your goals:
What might you find yourself needing along the way?
Will you perhaps need extra support at some point?
Is there anything you can do to help ease the journey?
Are there any specific opportunities you should keep an eye out for?
(SIDE NOTE FROM LADY B: When I do this I pick only up to 3 goals per year and break the over all goal down into smaller parts that will make reaching it more manageable. I keep a weekly journal for what I am doing to reach each step of my goal and how big my plants have grown. When doing a long tern spell to bring about 1 or more goals I need a touchstone of how I am achieving what I want my touchstone is my journal. I use a new journal each time I plant seeds to help my intention reach it’s goal. I also separate the goals by writing each goal as a title than skip about 4 to 8 pages depending on the size of the journal I am using a smaller one I leave more pages in between goals than I do with a larger size journal. Spiral notebooks are good to use for this)
AFTER THE CIRCLE IS FINISHED and YOU FEEL READY: Get a flower pot or two and plant them. If you want to use some symbols or words written in any alphabet on the outside or even the inside of your flower pot to infuse more of your energy to help your intention to manifest go right a head and do it.(SIDE NOTE from Lady B If you want your flowers or herbs to be able to be transplanted outside then I suggest you use a Terra Cotta planter or a cardboard or peat moss starter planters. the first type you will have to break open to plant the dirt, roots, and plant. The second you can just pull it away some from the dirt and root ball and plant the whole thing. Make sure you do not get the cardboard or peat moss containers that do not have growing chemicals in them. Also if you plant herbs after they are a fairly good size try to keep them only SLIGHTLY moist at all time because if they get dry and than you water them they flavor of the herb will not be as strong.)
Put a couple of seeds into the paper, and crumple it small.  Soak it in water, compressing it into a wet ball.  Push the ball down into the dirt – following the instructions on the packet, please, as to the depth and soil type for the plant you’re using.  If you feel the need to preserve your notes, you can put the flower pot on top of the paper, instead.  Either way, be sure to moisten the soil once you’re done, asking the seeds to help your goals grow with you.
As the upcoming year unfolds, tend to the seeds as they grow.  Remember that goals need tending, the same as new plants.  Allow your new plants to remind you that your goals are still with you.  Even if the seeds do not grow, or do not grow the way you expected, know that you have contributed your part to the fertility of spring.  You have asked your goals to take root – the seeds are to remind and represent, but the personal intentions you set are the real destination.
Now, as we finish our Beltane rite, picture the daily reality of seeking these goals.  Prepare yourself for the actual doing of it.   Pray to the divine as you picture this.  Ask them to help indicate anything you can prepare for, look out for.
(SIDE NOTE FROM LADY B: When I do this I pick only up to 3 goals per year and break the over all goal down into smaller parts that will make reaching it more manageable. I keep a weekly journal for what I am doing to reach each step of my goal and how big my plants have grown.

Spiral notebooks are good to use for this)
Make a strong mental note of anything that comes up here.  Feel free to record anything important.
(SIDE NOTE FROM LADY B: These questions are one of the reasons I use a journal that I have described above.)
EVERYONE: Please thank High Priestess Beth for being part of our gathering this evening/morning and for the time and work she to bring us a wonderful ritual.
Lady Beltane: I walk this circle three times three as the Maiden and Crone walk with me. To celebrate a time of death and a time of rebirth. I bring us  back to our Earthly plane and time to celebrate life, death, and rebirth. We thank the Crone for her comfort in our time of remembrance and ask her to leave us. We thank the Maiden for blessing our seeds as we rejoice and ask her to leave us. As we will it so mote it be.
The circle is open but never broken go in peace and contentment dear sisters and brothers.
EVERYONE: Now put on a favorite song, and celebrate.  This is not the time to do, not yet.  This is just the first step.  Enjoy it!  Revel in it!  Life is not simply to be lived – it is to be experienced in all its glory.  Take a moment now to fill yourself with thanks for this new knowledge, and look forward to your goals.  Feel the possibility inside you, and let yourself feel gratitude.  Raise a glass of wine or juice, help yourself to a sweet treat.  Welcome that sweetness into your life, and ask for a blessing that every goal you accomplish will come with the sweetness of this moment.  Ask your own personal divine to sit with you now, and throughout the upcoming year.  And smile.
Because you know they will, and you know you will get what you truly need.
This is not a time to mourn those who have gone before us but a time to celebrate their lives. Remember our time with them and rejoice we will see them in the Summerlands or even possibly in the new incarnation in your family or circle of friends. AS you dance and rejoice lift your glass to them and say whatever comes to mind.
Both hemispheres remember to take a piece of your sweet and a sip of your beverage outside to place and pour on the ground to honor the Crone and Maiden for their presence and help with our rituals.

Ostara/Spring Equinox Blessing

Spring

From all of us at Coven Life we wish you and yours a blessed and pleasant Spring.

Mabon/Ostara Online Gathering Monday, September 23rd

Coven Life’s Coven invites all witches, pagans, or anyone else to come celebrate with us if you would like to. All the information you need is in this post.

Whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere we ask that you remain attentively in the circle from the time it is casted until it is open. The reason we ask felt you to here the whole time is to share in your brothers and sister Sabbat celebration. You are welcome to do both rituals if you feel you want to and they are both calling to do them. No witch in or out oven a coven practices exactly like any other witch. Yes when we are at a gathering such as this we all are doing and saying the same things and we feel the closeness of our xpiritualnfamily but, a lot of us do other spellwork and/or ritual when we are by ourselves. This is true in almost all of the face to face covens I have visited over the years. I encourage everyone in this coven when doing things on your own, after doing the lessons that deal with rituals for safety reason, to do it in whatever why feels right to them. I did this with my face to face covens as well. So as I have told many people when asked, “How does an Online Coven Work?” I say, “That we are solitary witches some of which are learning The Craft and some of us mentor them and we come together as a spiritual family to celebrate the Moon and our holidays.”

Southern: 1 Hard Boiled Egg colored only Crayon or a piece of wax 1 Yellow Taper Candle (30.5 cm or 12 inch long) Long Nose Pliers, Oven Mitt

Rituals

Lady Beltane: I walk our circle three times while I call upon Fire, Air, and Water to be in constant motion  around us, I call upon Earth to form the bottom half of the bubble from the ground to our waist, I call Spirit to form the top half of the bubble around us interlock with Earth. Our bubble of protection takes to a place that is outside of time and place. As above, so is below. As within, so is without.

EVERYONE: Please introduce yourself (FIRST NAME ONLY) and what state or country you live in.

MABON CELEBRATION – Northern Hemisphere

EVERYONE: Cut the apple in half horizontally, so one point of where the seeds are looks like a pentagram. Place the 2 halves side by side. Place the orange candle in the middle at the top part of the two halves. Notice that the center of the apple looks like a pentagram. One point of the seed pentagram should be facing up towards Hekate’s orange candle.

Light the orange candle while asking Hekate to enter your home to help bless it. Prayer to Hekate:

Great Mother Hekate the protector of Witches I invite you into my home and ask you to give the building and all living things dwelling in your protection and that you help guide us with your wisdom. Thank you Hekate!

Now starting at the top point of the apple pentagram going clockwise around the apples pentagram. Start at the top point ask Spirit to enter your home and bless it. Remember to touch each point of the pentagram with the index finger of your power/receiving  hand as you invite each of the elements in. Next, you will ask Air to enter your home and bless it. Next comes Fire ask it to enter your home and bless it. Next, ask Water to enter your home and bless it. Finally, ask Earth to come into your home to bless it. When you are done calling in the elements wait 2 minutes thinking about your home being blessed with warmth, enough food, and warm clothes to get you through the coming colder months. Then thank the elements and Hekate for their blessing and tell them to return from where they came.

Let your candle burn all the way down.

After the circle has been opened take one half of the apple outside to share with the wildlife around your home and allow the other half to dry out in an open glass or ceramic bowl or dish and leave it out somewhere in your home to help the blessing continue.

 

OSTARA CELEBRATION – Southern Hemisphere

Light the yellow candle and set it about 12 inches away but in front of you. Call Ostara to the candle. Prayer for Ostara:

Ostara from where all life comes please help give me the strength and will power to achieve the goal that I am setting for myself  today. Thank you Ostara

Take 2 minutes to write one goal on your egg that you would like to achieve before Samhain arrives. Try to use only 1 or 2 words to write your goal in any type of alphabet you want to use Runes, Ogham and other types of “magickal alphabets or symbols can be found by using the search box on either Coven Life.com, WitchesofTheCraft.com or doing a search on the internet. Type in “DONE” when you are through. Now carefully holding the yellow candle allow wax from it to drip on to the egg, turn the egg so the wax gets all over it while asking Ostara to help you reach your goal. Take 2 to 3 minutes to do this step. Be very careful the hot wax does not drip onto you (I use a pair of thin long nose pliers to hold my egg  and wear an oven mitt when using this ritual.) Type in the word “DONE” when you are through.

After the circle is opened take the egg outside and bury it while asking Mother Earth to help your goal to grow and be harvested on Mabon. Then work towards your goal daily until you reach it. Let the candle burn all the way down and bury the melted wax with the egg so it keeps feeding the egg energy.

EVERYONE NORTH and SOUTH: Lift your glass of juice/wine in a toast to the goddesses, and elements that helped us with all with our rituals this evening or this morning. Repeat Lady Beltane’s toast. Remember to save a little to pour on the ground as an offering to the gods and goddesses that helped us tonight.

LADY BELTANE TOAST: We raise our glasses or cups to honor Hekate, Ostara, Mother Earth, Spirit, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth for their power and help with protecting and blessing our homes and/or helping us reach our goal.

EVERYONE: Type in “So mote it be” when you are done saying the toast.

EVERYONE: Raise your arms above your head palms facing the floor bring them down slowly until you touch the floor. With your hands on the floor say, ” I give this extra energy to Mother Earth to use in whatever way she needs to!” Make a one quarter turn and repeat the same movements and prayer. Type So Mote It Be when you done grounding the excess energy in your part of our circle.

LADY BELTANE: I bring us back to the Earthly plane and real time. This sacred circle is open but our spiritual ties are never broken. Go in love and peace dear brothers and sisters. Blessed be until we merry meet again

Time to visit some more!!

Remember to bring your offerings to the goddesses. Northerners bring that Apple half out for the wildlife it is fine to cut it into smaller pieces for say squirrels and birds, and chipmunk. Southerners remember to bury the egg and left over candle.

 

 

 

Hold an Imbolc Candle Ritual for Solitaries

Hundreds of years ago, when our ancestors relied upon the sun as their only source of light, the end of winter was met with much celebration. Although it is still cold in February, often the sun shines brightly above us, and the skies are often crisp and clear. As a festival of light, Imbolc came to be called Candlemas. On this evening, when the sun has set once more, call it back by lighting the seven candles of this ritual.

The seven candles in this ritual represent various aspects of both the seasons and the human existence. Several symbolize the light that emerges as winter finally comes to an end, and another represents the purifying warmth of the hearth fires. One candle is symbolic of the barrier between the positive and negative in your life; a boundary of sorts between our world and the next. Another stands in for the magic of wisdom and inspiration, and for the light that comes into our lives when we experience love.

If you’re a solitary practitioner, don’t worry! This is a ritual you can perform all by yourself. Although this ceremony is written for one, it can easily be adapted for a small group by assigning each participant their own candle, or candles, to light and take charge of.

Allow this energy to build up and be part of your WISH as you begin to write it.

On top of the symbol please start writing your WISH- 1 minute. During this time you will be putting your absolute and full intention from your heart space.

Type done when finished.

EVERYONE: “Lord of the Sun that rides the westerly wild wind. As the seeds flourish and the fall into the waiting earth. I know this to be a time of equals allowing natures scales to come into balance. As the dark winter shadows reveal the wheel-a-turning it unveils life’s glory through a deathly silence.

EVERYONE: O Great Goddess, watcher of sacred magic and long gone myths, show me the way to great wisdom. Show me the way Great Goddess!”

When you are done please meditate for a full 2 minutes on the wish.

Type done when finished

EVERYONE: Let my mind and my hands be dedicated to the service of the God and the Goddess.

For After the Ritual

After the ritual you will give your WISH to the Great Mother Herself. You can bury it in the earth under your favorite tree or tie it on one of it’s grand branches, inside a fae circle, place it in a running stream, river or ocean. The choice is yours. Take your time to find the right place even if it is in a couple of weeks.

When you have the place, as you give it to the Great Mother, recite the WISH 3 times, begin with reverence and end with love and Gratitude, remembering to breathe from your ‘Heart Space’.

 

FAREWELLS

EVERYONE:

Mother Goddess, Lady of the Waters, I thank you for your presence and your blessings. May there be peace and honor between us now and forever. Hail and farewell.”

Ancestors of blood and ancestors of spirit, I thank you for your presence and your blessings. May there be peace and honor between us now and forever. Hail and farewell.”

Beltane/Samhain Sabbat Gathering April 30, 2019

This month’s Northern Hemisphere was written by and will be led by Lady Beltane. The Southern Hemisphere was written and will be led by Priestess Hypatia. The calling of the Watchtowers will be done by both. The circles will be cast at the same time for each hemisphere by the Elder that is leading it.

WHEN:

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Social hour 6:00 to 6:59 PM Central Time

Sacred Circle cast at 7:00 PM Central Time

WHERE:

Coven Life’s Chatroom

Beltane or May Day – Is the Sabbat that celebrates fertility. We will be honoring Beltane/Beltain/Beltaine the May Queen, a.k.a. Queen of the Fairies, to bless our gardens of all kinds be they vegetable, flower, herb or a seed we plant within our spirit to help us grow as a person and witch. The Fea Folk take the essences of the food and drinks offered to them they do not have need of the physical item as they can recreate it from the essences when they have a use for it.

Samhain – As the third and final harvest. This Sabbat heralds the commencement of the dark winter half of the year. Traditionally the veil between the spirit and physical realm is thin. This is the time the Dark Mother (Crone) and Father (Her aged Consort) are paid due respect A candle is often placed in the window to assist the ancestors to find their way home and offerings of food left at the altar and the doorstep for the wandering spirits. With the coming of darkness, nothing is what is seems, therefore for your own protection, a concentrated circle should always be performed prior to performing any ritual.

Making your own Samhain Incense 

1 part Dittany (oregano from Crete that is thought to be highly protective)

½ part Pine

1 part Sandalwood

¼ part Patchouli

¼ part Benzoin Resin

Few drops of Pine oil

P.s- please feel free to be creative with whatever ingredients you have available.

Burn your incense on charcoal if you choose.

Burn this before, during and after the ritual if you choose.

What You Need in Northern Hemisphere:

Any type of bell – the louder the better

A Small Glass – Glass

Spoon

1 ounce Warm Milk

1 small pad Melted Butter

1 teaspoon of Honey – if you have a beekeeper close by asking them or use are honey if possible

Mix in either one or all of these spices 1/2 teaspoon dried ground ginger or 2-3 thin slices of fresh ginger or 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg or 3 whole cloves Oh can also set these spices on the treat/offering plate separately

What You Will Need in the Southern Hemisphere

  • Black candle that represents the dying God OR a yellow candle inscribed with a solar symbol (sun)
  • Offerings of flowers, fruits and grains
  • Divination tools that can include tarot cards and runes, use others if you wish
  • Cornbread to offer to the spirit of the dead
  • Samhain incense above

 

Watchtowers

Lady Beltane: We call Earth into the watchtower of the North to help to remember to always stay grounded.

Priestess Hypatia: We call Air into the watchtower of the East to help us keep an open mind when exploring and learning about different paths of witchcraft.

Lady Beltane: We call Water into the watchtower of the West to help to put us in someone else shoes to see things from their point of few when we are angry about something they had said or done to us.

Priestess Hypatia: We call Fire to the watchtower of the South to remind us to always keep kindness burning in our mind, heart, and spirit towards others in our minds.

Casting the Sacred Circles

Lady Beltane – Nothern Hemisphere: (Each time starting in the East) I walk this circle with Beltane the May Queen/Queen of the Fairies three times. First to close it with Fire that any negative thing will be burned up before it can harm those in this circle/ Second to close it with Air to blow away anything Fire has burned. Third to close it with Water so Fire cannot make it to hot in our circle. (Standing between the circle and altar facing North) Next, I lay my hands flat on the floor then stand slowly while slowing turning clockwise bring my hands to waist level – I call on Earth to protect us from below. Lastly, I raise my arms over my head and walk clockwise while bring them down to meet Earth at waist level – I call upon Spirit to protect us from above.

Priestess Hypatia – Southern Hemisphere: Cast your circle and build up your energy of protection around you, begin to burn your Samhain  Incense Invocation of the God and Goddess by saying:

‘As the veil between the two worlds thins, I ask for your blessing Dark Mother and Dark Father,

I greet those who have gone before me, my ancestors and loved ones.

May the circle only be entered by those who wish me well.

We greet all those departed before us and who are free of all Earthly ties.”

EVERYONE: Please type in your first or pagan name and what country or state you are from. DO NOT include your towns name, please.

Beltane Ritual – Northern Hemisphere

In your small glass mix together the milk, honey, spices, and melted butter. Now while ring your bell why you say:

We invite the Fea Folk into our yards and gardens to help our, plants and trees to grow.

To the Fea Folk that only have mischief on their minds, you are not welcome on my property or in my vegetable and/or flower pots.

We honor you Queen with this offering of milk, honey, butter and spices she enjoys as a sign of good faith that we will treat her people with respect and supply them with an offering every month that we have given to you, Your Highness.

Stop ring your bell for now. When you take the offering outside for the Fairy Queen after our circle has opened then ring the bell three times three waiting about 10 seconds in between the sets of three rings. Slowly pour the mixture under the tallest tree in your yard so that the last drop comes out on the last ring of the bell (the 9th ring). Every month when you take the offering out to the Fea Folk that are helping you ring your bell in the same way as you did to signal the Queen.

Samhain RItual – Southern Hemisphere

This is the time to spend a few moments thinking of your loved ones.

Then say:

“We thank you for your presence here tonight”

Next- Light the God candle

Then say:

“This candle symbolizes the Sun Lord- its passing and quenching. Tonight it is the wheel of the year turning allowing all you dead souls to walk amongst the living. We are grateful as we pass through and into the shadow of darkness. In honor of the Gods and Goddesses, we thank you for your glorious gifts received from the summertime. As the Lord of the Sun moves from us and as the wheel turns, so it will turn again until the Sun rises from the moon.”

Wait for 2 minutes contemplating the prayer and blow out the black God candle. Do not light the God candle until Yule.

Now acknowledge the Crone aspect of the Goddess and say:

“Oh, Great Goddess of both wisdom and magick speak to us of your power and wisdom.  We thank you and acknowledge your gifts of the decreasing moon and the glorious stars. They will be used wisely. Grant us your energy and force so that our spells, rituals and divinations will be enthused. Understand great Goddess that they shall bring no harm to your creatures.”

Dismiss the spirits and ancestors by saying: “Go in peace and aid us as we look beyond the long dark days.”

Afterward: Use your divination tools to gain perspective for the coming months, hold a simple feat, close the scared circle and finally bury the offerings in the earth and leave a plate of food for the wandering spirits.

BOTH HEMISPHERES:

Dismissing the Watchtowers

Northern also Dismissing Spirit and Earth

Opening the Circles

Lady Beltane – Final Blessing – We go in peace and harmony, though the circle is open our coven shall never be broken. Blessing of good fortune my dear Brothers and Sisters

May Your Ostara or Mabon Sabbat be a Happy and Blessed Time

Well, I just learned something new about the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere and the fall equinox in the southern hemisphere. The spring equinox is at 4:58 PM CT on March 20th while the fall equinox is at 8:58 AM AEDT in the southern hemisphere. Which means we are experiencing the equinoxes at the exact same time just in different time zones and because of the international date line on a different date.

When I read this I felt it covered more than just a blessing for Ostara and Mabon. I felt it was a blessing to carry with us all through the year.

Northern Brothers and Sisters: May what you sow this spring come to a bountiful harvest in the fall.

Southern Brothers and SIsters: May what you sowed in the spring be bring you a bountiful harvest this fall.

Remember we can sow different things for our own reasons they do not have to be something we plant in the ground and watch grow, they can be something we change in our lifestyle or in our spiritual or magickal path. Then when we harvest them they become part of us and who we are.

March’s Coven Gathering – N.H. Ostara/ S.H. Mabon Sabbats and Full Moon Esbat

Because of the Sabbats falling so close to the full Moon this month I decided to have the rituals combined into one instead of having two gatherings within two days. -Lady Beltane

This Sabbat and Esbat ritual was written by two of Coven Life’s Coven Adepts. Their names are Country Moon and Druantia Earth-song. Druantia Earth-song will be leading the gathering. Please remember that both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres Sabbats are being celebrated and the full Moon you need to stay in the circle until all the rituals are fully done. You are welcome to do both Sabbat rituals if you want to.

EVERYONE:  Please light the God candle
We will now begin our rituals … Beginning with the Northern Hemisphere. Southern Hemisphere, please wait until you are prompted.

NORTHERN HEMISPHERE

ADEPT DRUANTIA: At this time and in this place between worlds, we are gathered here, not only in honor of the Mother but also in honor of the Goddess Ostara. Just as she heralds the end of the dark phase of the year, so too do we release the dark within. Just as she signifies the awakening of the light phase, so too do we summon new growth and renewed energy.
EVERYONE: Please take one piece of paper and write down one to three things you wish to release (eg. I release all fears, I release my addiction to smoking, I release anger, I release guilt, I release depression, etc). If you have more than one thing, space them apart so that you can tear them off as you need to burn them. Once you have written it/them down, light the black candle. Spend 2 minutes concentrating on releasing the problem[s].
Then visualize it/them being attached to your body by a black cord. Individually put each problem into a bubble of white light and see a pair of scissors cutting the cord at the base to that attachment.  See the balloon of light flying off into the distance with your problem inside until it completely disappears. Do this with each separate problem, and as each is being released, light the paper in the candle flame one at a time, if you have more than one. Once burning well, throw into the heatproof bowl or cauldron and leave it to burn completely. You will have three minutes to burn the piece or pieces of paper.
Once you are finished type in DONE.
Now pick up the other piece of paper and write down one thing you would like to embrace or manifest in your life (eg: I embrace abundance and prosperity, I  embrace full mind, body, spirit wellness, I embrace good Luck, I embrace career success, I embrace happiness etc). Once you are done, place the paper down and pick up the crystal. Hold the crystal and concentrate on your desire. See it as it has already happened. Spend 2 minutes meditating upon your desire. Then place the crystal down with the paper underneath it
Once you are finished type in DONE
Now we will do the Southern Hemisphere. Northern hemisphere please be patient.

SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

ADEPT DRUANTIA: At this time and in this place between worlds, we are gathered here, not only in honor of the Greenman but also in honor of the God Mabon. Just as he heralds the end of the light phase of the year, so too do we acknowledge the need for rest and retreat. Just as he signifies the coming of the dark phase of the year, so too do we plant seeds for positive new growth.
EVERYONE: Please take up one piece of paper and write down one to three things you wish to release (eg. I release all fears, I release my addiction to smoking, I release anger, I release guilt, I release depression etc). If you have more than one thing, space them apart so that you can tear them off as you need to burn them. Once you have written it/them down, light the black candle. Spend 2 minutes concentrating on releasing the problem[s]. Visualize each individual problem being attached by a black cord. Put the problem into a bubble of white light and see a pair of scissors cutting the cord at the base of this attachment. See the balloon of light flying off into the distance, with your problem inside until it completely disappears. Do this with each separate problem and as each is being released, light the paper in the candle flame one at a time if you have more than one. Once burning well, throw into the heatproof bowl or cauldron and allow to burn completely. You have three minutes to do this.
Once you are finished, type DONE.
Now take up the other piece of paper and write down one thing you would like to embrace or manifest (eg. I embrace abundance and prosperity, I embrace full mind, body, spirit wellness, I embrace good luck, I embrace career success, I embrace happiness etc). Once you are done, place the paper down and pick up the crystal. Hold the crystal and concentrate on your desire. See it as it has already happened. Spend 2 minutes meditating on your desire.
When finished, type DONE
THE OFFERING
EVERYONE: Please place your chalice in the center of your altar or on your pentacle. Hold your hands above the chalice and allow the light within you to flow from your heart and down your arms. See it flowing out of your hands and into the chalice. See the chalice glowing with light. Then raise it up high toward the Moon and say-
Dear Goddess and God, I offer you this drink as a token of my gratitude. Honor to thee  Oh Old Ones!”.
Then take a drink of the beverage and put the chalice back on the altar in its original place.
Next, move your offering plate to the center of your altar or onto your pentacle and hold your hands above it. Allow the light within to flow forth and down into the food. Once you have filled it with light, raise it up toward the Sun[or imaginary Sun] and say-
Dear Goddess and God, I offer you this food as a token of my gratitude. Honor to thee Oh Old Ones!
Then eat a bite of the food and place the plate back on the altar in its original place. Take a minute to finish your bite and then type DONE.
We thank the Old Ones for the food and drink they provide for us daily.
DISMISSING THE GOD AND GODDESS
O  Great Cernunnos, Lord of the Wildwood and all it encompasses, we thank you for honoring us with your presence and aid. Between two worlds, was magick made. Great Lord, we bid you Hail and Farewell !”
O Great Danu Mother of both Earth and Moon, we thank you for honoring us with your presence and aid. Between two worlds was magick made. Great Lady, we bid you Hail and Farewell !”
Now please visualize the God and Goddess going their separate ways, back to from whence they came. Then spend a moment releasing any energy you have retained. You can either bend down and touch the Earth or send it off to someone that is in need of healing. Either way, feel it and see it leaving your arms and going to its destination either deep in the earth to be absorbed and transformed or off to help someone. Once it has left you, stand up again.
DISMISSING OF THE WATCHTOWERS:
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the East, Powers of Air, we thank you for your protection and presence and give you leave to depart our circle. Hail and Farewell!”
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the North, Powers of Earth, we thank you for your protection and presence and give you leave to depart our circle. Hail and Farewell !”
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the West, Powers of Water, we thank you for your protection and presence and give you leave to depart our circle. Hail and Farewell !”
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the South, Powers of Fire, we thank you for your protection and presence and give you leave to depart our circle. Hail and Farewell !”
Three times three the power is ground. As without, so within, All bad be gone and good come in. As below  so above, A sacred place of light and love.”
ADEPT DRUANTIA:-
Our circle is open, but never ever  broken. Always shall it reside within our hearts.”
***After this ritual, please take the ashes outside and toss or blow to the four winds.Allow the black spell candle to burn down , but make sure it is in a safe place or transfer it to a bath tub or sink.The crystal should be placed in a window  that gets both sun and moon and set on top of your piece of paper. Leave it there for one Full Moon cycle.Your desire should have manifested by then…
