The Friendship Moon (Another Name for April’s Full Moon)

What will We not do for our dear friends? Once upon a time, Sun and Moon, husband and wife, invited their friend Water to stay with them in their very large house. Alas, their home was not big enough! Water and his features quickly filled the house and spilled into the surrounding gardens. Sun and Moon had no where to go but . . .up! This is why Sun and Moon live in the sky.

The element of water, so prevalent in the spring, is closely connected to emotions. April’s Full Moon is a wonderful time to meditate on friendship. To whom are you closely connected? What do you do for each other? Set out a receptacle (house) under the  Full Moon and place a moonshine and a sunstone inside it. Fill the house with water and bless the pair of stones, an amulet for friendship:

To the Moon and back again,

For you, dear friend, anything.

keep the stone that resonates with you, and give the other to a beloved friend.

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.

This is a powerful time, with the emphasis on death, birth, and rebirth[releasing, renewing and balance]. With our spells being brought forth on a Full Moon and Sabbats the two together will make them stronger.
Before we begin, let us all introduce ourselves and state where we are from.
EVERYONE: Please type your first or pagan name, state or country.

 

ADEPT DRUANTIA: We will now cast the circle and call in the Guardians of the Watchtowers

Guardians of the Watchtowers of the East, Powers of Air, we humbly invite you to our circle and ask for your wisdom, guidance, and protection.
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the South, Powers of Fire, we humbly invite you to our circle and ask for your wisdom, guidance, and protection.
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the West, Powers of Water, we humbly invite you to our circle and ask for your wisdom, guidance, and protection.
Guardians of the Watchtowers of the North, Powers of Earth, we humbly invite you to our circle and ask for your wisdom, guidance, and protection.

Three times three the power is bound. As without, so within, All bad be gone znd good come in. As below  so above, A sacred place of light and love.” 

INVOCATION OF THE GODDESS:
         ” We call upon the Goddess Danu to bring growth and equilibrium to our circle. Oh great Danu, mother of both Earth and Moon, we are gathered here this night/day to celebrate your fullness. Now is your time dear Lady and I ask that you come forth and be welcome in our circle. Please be with your earthly sons and daughters as we celebrate the Ostara/Mabon sabbats, and honor you in your time of ripeness. We ask that you bless us with your presence and lend your powers to our workings. Great Danu, We invoke  you!”
EVERYONE: Please light the Goddess candle.
INVOCATION TO THE GOD:
         “We call upon the Greenman to bear witness to our rite. Oh great Cernunnos, Lord of the Wildwood and all it encompasses, We ask that you come forth and be welcome in our circle. Please be with your Earthly sons and daughters as we celebrate the Ostara/Mabon sabbats and honor the Lady in her time of ripeness. We ask that you bless us with your presence great Lord and lend your powers to our workings. Great Cernunnos, we call upon you!”
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 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…

Drawing down the Moon 

 

δραςινγ-δοςν-τηε-μοον

Drawing down the Moon (also known as drawing down the Goddess) is a central ritualin many contemporary Wiccan traditions. During the ritual, a coven’s High Priestessenters a trance and requests that the Goddessor Triple Goddess, symbolized by the Moon, enter her body and speak through her. The High Priestess may be aided by the High Priest, who invokes the spirit of the Goddess. During her trance, the Goddess speaks through the High Priestess.

The name most likely comes from a depiction of two women and the moon on an ancient Greek vase, believed to date from the second century BCE.

In classical times of ancient Greece, ancient Thessalian witches were believed to control the moon, according to the tract: “If I command the moon, it will come down; and if I wish to withhold the day, night will linger over my head; and again, if I wish to embark on the sea, I need no ship, and if I wish to fly through the air, I am free from my weight.”

The Orphic hymn to Selene (Moon)

One of these songs is the Orphic Hymn to the goddess Selene, namely the Moon. The text could be also considered as a spell one could address to the Blood Moon that is going to appear in the skies tomorrow.

“Hear, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light, bull-horn’d and wand’ring thro’ the gloom of Night.

With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide Night’s torch extending, thro’ the heav’ns you ride:

Female and Male with borrow’d rays you shine, and now full-orb’d, now tending to decline.

Mother of ages, fruit-producing Moon [Mene], whose amber orb makes Night’s reflected noon:

Lover of horses, splendid, queen of Night, all-seeing pow’r bedeck’d with starry light.

Lover of vigilance, the foe of strife, in peace rejoicing, and a prudent life:

Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend, who giv’st to Nature’s works their destin’d end.

Queen of the stars, all-wife Diana hail! Deck’d with a graceful robe and shining veil;

Come, blessed Goddess, prudent, starry, bright, come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light,

Shine on these sacred rites with prosp’rous rays, and pleas’d accept thy suppliant’s mystic praise.”

Hear, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light, bull-horn’d and wand’ring thro’ the gloom of Night.

With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide Night’s torch extending, thro’ the heav’ns you ride:

Female and Male with borrow’d rays you shine, and now full-orb’d, now tending to decline.

The Witches of Thessaly

By Hypatia

Written for Coven Life

4th June 2018

 

Thessaly was a region in antiquity that was mentioned in Homers Odyssey. There he described the already infamous witches of Thessaly that were active from the 1st to the 3rd Century BCE. Before him both Plato and Socrates spoke of them. These women were both feared and revered.

So who were the Thessalian Witches?

In the centre of it all was the Goddess Hecate. Servants and priestesses of Hecate were already famous for their witchcraft. Thessaly was located in the northern region of Greece that bordered Macedonia. It was considered to be the home of witchcraft and magic, a place where the first known historical Witch-Cult was recorded.

The Thessalian Witches had incredible Magickal abilities, sayings, prayers and incantations mentioned in Homers Odyssey that are still till this day used by modern practitioners of Magick to draw down the moon.

“If I command the Moon it will come down: and if I wish to withhold the day, night will linger over my head: and again, if I wish to embark on the sea, I need no ship, and if I wish to fly through the air, I am free from my weight”.

Wow, it looks like witches have been flying through the air since the 2nd century BC according to this extract from a Greek text.

The red headed women of Thessaly would use the magical powers of the moon. The Magickal concept of the moon was that it had the ability to perspire Magickal sweat, which in the hand of a witch revealed truly wondrous powers. There was a Magick called virus lunare, through which the moon could be invoked and a liquid secreted from it and then dropped on the herbs. This was the ambrosia that was acquired during the waxing period of the moon and was part of some of the most famous potions ever created throughout history.

The Thessalian Witches were mainly women, however there is also indication of male members as well.

These servants and priestesses of the Goddess were attributed for their all-powerful Love Potions and their aphrodisiacs, ones that rarely come without consequence. Some of these preparations could “make someone crazy” and even impotent, so as legend has it .

Some of the less desirable traits of the Witches of Thessaly included, cannibalism and traits of scatological nature. I can see similarities where the trickling down of descriptive and I believe deceptive characteristics that were adopted for the persecution of witches in European “Christendom” held steadfast from the ancient times.

One of the famous Witches of Thessaly included Aglaonike, a natural philosopher in c 200 BC. She was a master of the arts predicting Lunar cycles that included lunar eclipses. Armed with this knowledge, she was able to, what others believed to control the moon. This power gained her both respect and fear from not only the everyday person but heads of state and country. Now that’s wisdom in all it’s glory!! It’s no wonder these women and men were so feared.

Throughout history the Witches of Thessaly have endured much literary criticism that was written from a range of perspectives, interpretations and even theoretical structures. Either way their stories that were once fact adorning the temples of Hecate, soon became history, then legend and finally mythology. The Priestesses and servants of the Great Goddess have left us with their incredible legacy, one that till this day connects the feminine aspect of humanity with the moon and spans globally throughout generations. Take what you may from the historical interpretations and stories of the Thessalian Witches, they were and are legendary. They were Priestesses and servants of the Great Goddess, a Goddess that was venerated and worshiped throughout the world in many different aspects . Remnants of their legacy is evident in our modern understanding of the historical concepts of earth based religions. Ones that are clearly still needed and yearned from humanity till this day.

Additional information for the recent Gathering of the Blue Moon eclipse, January 31st.

Merry Meet Coven members.

Thank you for attending the Gathering to honor the super moon eclipse on the 31st.  It was an absolute pleasure and honor to have all of you on board.

In continuation with the ritual, Lady Beltane requested I make some further suggestions to help you better understand what you may choose to do with the stone. The Talisman you have charged with your mantra is your guide to assist you to move through your metamorphosis. As mentioned in the gathering post, continue to use the mantra and stone 3 days after the full moon as this is the most potent time. This will assist you to connect on a deeper level to yourself and of course the Goddess within.

Your mantra can dictate which hand you hold the stone in when you recite over the next 3 days. If it is one of receiving such as wanting more guidance, wanting personal healing, wanting respect, if it is for the self than it is in the left hand. This is the hand for receiving. If however your mantra was for you to give more compassion to others or give more respect to others or give love than you can hold this in your right hand. Alternatively like Lady Beltane mentioned you could just hold it in your power hand if all this is confusing. Your power hand is the one that you would use the most, are you left or right handed? Also traditionally the right hand is the path of the light and the left is the path of the dark. Neither are good or bad they just are, and choosing either or is fine. The intention is working from your heart space to charge you Talisman with the guidance of the Great Goddess and the God.

Your Talisman: If you feel comfortable carrying the stone with you than please do so. It is important that it stays with you as much as possible over the next 3 days while you recite your mantra. Sleeping with it if you can’t have it on you during the day is also fine. After the 3 days you can place it on your alter or in you Witch bag to remind you of what it represents. If you choose, carry the stone for as long as you feel. It will tell you what you need to do. If you are unable to carry the Talisman than please once again visualize the Cor Leonis and the elements you inscribed. These symbols are triggers, little reminders of the powerful potential that is every human being!

Your candle: It would be wonderful to allow your candle to burn as long as possible. It’s not as much the size but the intention. If you feel that you need to light a white candle whenever you choose to recite you mantra then please do so. You don’t need to let that burn all the way that is up to you. The light represents the guidance of the Goddess. Having her presence over the next 3 days is a beautiful feeling. Re-igniting that feeling whenever you recite your mantra by lighting another white candle is beautiful. If you need to recite your mantra and don’t have a candle please just visualize a light, once again this is from your heart space which is the domain of the Great Goddess.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and remember to allow yourself to follow your intuition. Listen to your inner Goddess and God. They are you and you are them. As without so within as above so below.

Blessings to all

Merry Part until be Merry Meet again

Magic of the Moon

This article was written in 2015 by Unknow on the moonslipper.com.

Since time began, we have been using the Moon to live our lives by

– to tune into the Earth’s natural rhythms

– to use the magic of the moon phases for living, growing crops, magic rituals, health and so much more.

Magic of the Moon Basics

The Moon completes a full orbit around the Earth every 29.5 days.

During the New Moon phase the position of the moon means no light is reflected off the Sun, so it is not visible at all.

The Full Moon appears 14 to 15 days after the New Moon and appears as a glorious glowing white circle in the night sky.

This phase reflects the maximum amount of light from the Sun.

The Phases of the Moon

The phases of the Moon are:

  • New Moon
  • Waxing Moon (when the Moon gets bigger in the sky, a narrow crescent growing from right to left)
  • Waning Moon (when the Full Moon is decreasing in size, moving back towards the New Moon, gradually changing to a decreasing crescent from right to left)
  • Gibbous Moon is the period between the first quarter and Full Moon and between the Full Moon and last quarter.

September 1, 2016 Luna Eclipse/New Moon

Tonight is not only time for New or Dark Moon magic, it is also a Lunar Eclipse. With that in mind, I wanted to remind you that spells and/or rituals will be strong than usual and a different type of energy will be at work. Spellwork under an eclipse should only be done by witches with advanced training as it takes a lot more focus and intention to have the spell work hopefully right than most beginners to The Craft have learned to do. Also just because you are an experienced witch does not guarantee your spell working properly when done under a Lunar Eclipse. Beginner/novice witches would better use this time in a mediation session inside a sacred circle.

Besides the informational posts the follow this one, here is a link for a general search on Google for lunar eclipse spells and magic: https://www.google.com/search?q=lunar+eclipse+spells&oq=lunar+eclipse+spells&aqs=chrome..69i57.13703j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Nature of Eclipse Magic and Spells during the Eclpise!

Understanding the meaning of a lunar eclipse

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon and a lunar eclipse can only occur on a Full Moon, a very special Full Moon. You can understand the power of a lunar eclipse with this parallel, if a Solar eclipse challenges your logic and your authority in your life a lunar eclipse will challenge your emotional readiness for a change. During a lunar eclipse a witch will face his/her insecurity, you must not only be able to imagine that a change can occur and what will this change bring but you must also have the willpower to proclaim: “I am ready and perfectly prepared for this change and I will make it happen”. A lunar eclipse is the perfect timing to face the past and find out the roots of your fears/insecurities, how they are linked to you, your emotions and your current state of being. To that personal journey you are advised to seek the guidance of your allies: angels, fairies, ghosts of loved ones, your higher self, the God(s) that will help you in your quest for truth and the time of the eclipse is perfect for that as it will allow you to contact ‘other worlds” and “other states of being”. 

Spellcasting during an eclipse

As a piece of advice never try spellcasting during an eclipse, unless you are very well prepared for this. Not only natural powers run loose and you will find difficult to ground them but the outcome of your spells cannot easily be predicted. It takes both a disciplined and experienced witch to harvest the power of the eclipse and is certainly not advised for beginners. An alternative to spellcasting can be contemplation and meditation on what you have experienced so far in your life. In addition, it is a good time to honour yourself, the Gods and beings of other worlds.
To take it one step further you may wish to initiate a contact with the Divine Forces. I will use Fairies as an example as they are the beings that I have most experience working with during my life. So during an eclipse you can establish your first connection with the Fairies. Be aware that you must know well why you want to contact fairies and please bear in mind that curiosity is not a good reason. For all of you who are interested about the Fairies or Sidhe I will prepare a series of articles about them however I am facing some major life changes at the moment and my time is limited (you can blame the eclipses for that :-). In case you want more information about the Fairies you can always contact the Greek Alchemist who will pass the message to me.
