Socializing starts at 6:45 PM CT
Circle Cast at 7:15 PM CT SHARP
Please do not enter or leave chatroom once the circle has been cast unless you lose your connection or an emergency arises.
What you will need:
A purple candle. (If you don’t have purple, use white)
Lighter or matches.
An amulet (preferably small enough to hold in your hand).
As we will be doing a ritual for protection, you may want to decorate your altar with lavender, amethyst, or other items you may have that are purple.
Tonight we are honoring the full moon, known as the Hare Moon. There are many legends and folk tales of the hare and the image of him on the moon. In most, it is a tale of virtue that brings good fortune to the person that unselfishly gives of himself to help others. A great lesson to learn. It is a moon of abundance, growth, and protection. We will use this energy to empower an amulet to provide protection. I will now call the Watchtowers.
MAIA: I call the Watchtower of the East to protect those inside and outside our circle today.
I call upon the Watchtower of the South to protect those inside and outside our circle today.
I call upon the Watchtower of the West to protect those inside and outside our circle today.
I call upon the Watchtower of the North to protect those inside and outside our circle today.
Please open your quarters and please hear our call.
I call upon Spirit to guide us in peace and love.
I ask the Goddess Diana to walk this circle three times three to lend us her power and energy as we gather here today. Let us come together and celebrate the lunar Goddess and the power she brings.
Merry greet brothers and sisters of the craft.
EVERYONE: Please type your name and country you live in.
MAIA: We gather here this day to ask the Goddess for protection from harm to our physical or mental well being. Let no one cause injury or heartache to our body or soul and may we be mindful to not cause pain for others.
EVERYONE: Please light your candle.
Please hold the item you have chosen to empower in your hands. Close your eyes and feel the item. See the item in your mind’s eye. Envision a protective barrier surrounding the item. Take 2 minutes to make the item your own personal amulet.
EVERYONE: When ready, type As I will it So Mote It Be!
Carry your amulet to feel protected or if it is large, place it by the front door of your house. It can be on a chain on your neck, hang from your rearview mirror, on a keychain, etc. Remember the power your amulet holds is the energy you have given it….recharge it by holding it in your hand and meditating.
MAIA: I dismiss the Watchtower of the East with thanks for their energy and protection here today.
I dismiss the Watchtower of the South with thanks for their energy and protection here today.
I dismiss the Watchtower of the West with thanks for their energy and protection here today.
I dismiss the Watchtower of the North with thanks for their energy and protection here today.
I dismiss Spirit from our circle with love and thanks.
I thank the Goddess Diana for her presence here today and for lending us her energy for protection. Please return from where you came.
Extinguish the candle safely.
The circle is open, but not broken. Go in perfect love and perfect trust.
Thank you, brothers and sisters, for joining us here today. Until Merry, we meet again.
