Please be in the chat room (see banner on left side for information on how to get into the chat room) no later then 6:10 PM CT. This is to avoid late comers breaking the circle and it having to be redone. Thank you for your promptness!

We have the honor of another High Priestess joining us to celebrate this Sabbat. Please welcome Stregga during the visiting time before or after or ritual circle please.

You will need 1 WHITE COLORED candle to be lit during the ritual.

Lady Beltane: I call upon Mother Earth to cast a circle three times three around all attending here,

with positive energy it will abound to cover all those far and near.

We will stand together in a place between the worlds, in a time out of time.

All our words need not to rhyme.

Rose Simmons: I call Air forth to join us now to bring in the knowledgeable wind of the east.

Wolf Woman Ways: I call forth Fire to join us now to bring in the changing wind from the South.

Stregga: I call forth Water to bring in the emotional wind of the West.

SunRay Sorceress: I call forth Earth to bring in the grounding wind of the North.

Lady Beltane: I call in Hecate to bring us wisdom and love for our homes. I call in Ra to bring in light and warmth for our homes.

Ra and Hecate we light this candle in your honor and to help bring light back to making the days longer again. To light our way through the long, cold winter. We ask that you bless each of us with warm homes, enough food not to go hungry, enough clothing to not be cold when we go outside. We also ask that we have a little extra to share with those in need of food, shelter and clothing so they to may find this winter easier to bear. These are our words, this is our will. SO MOTE IT BE.

We will now have a two minute meditation to empower our candles with blessing above. While holding the candle read the blessing out loud. Changing the word “our” to the word “my” at the end of they blessing. If you have a favorite essential oil you like to anointed a candle with you can do it before you light the White Colored Candle. Use tiny bit of the oil on the index finger of your power hand (the one you use to write with) make the sign of the Pentagram to place the oil on the candle three times in different locations. You can reuse this candle on the Winter Solstice to welcome the Sun King at his rebirth.

Lady Beltane: We offer the drink to the four winds, Hecate, and Ra. Please drink to join us in our celebration.

We offer the piece of bread to the four winds, Hecate, and Ra. Please eat of it to join us in our celebration.
