Circle Casting:

In the West
Where the Water begins to flow
This Circle is made

Welcome Father of all
As your seed grows in the earth

Welcome Mother of all
As you birth the Spring

(light silver candle)

Altar Blessing:

We ask the blessings of Crone and Sage upon these tools
That they may be used thoughtfully,
Clearly,
Lovingly,
And powerfully.

May what we do be in perfect love        (light red candle)
Perfect trust                                          (light pink candle)
And purity of purpose                        (light white candle)
With harm to none

3 to Go – 3 to Come:

For Dark Moon – Candlemas

(parchment, pens, cauldron)


To Go:

May Crone and Sage take these 3 of mine
Deep into the darkness never to see light

To Come:

May Maiden and Youth bring these 3 new to me
Out of the darkness into the light

Blessing/Consecration:

Upon these items I ask for the blessings of Earth
That they be strong
The blessings of Air
That they be healthy
The blessings of Fire
That they be powerful
The blessings of Water
That they be lasting
The blessings of Lady and Lord
That they be pure

Personal Blessing/Consecration:

Blessed be your mind
That your thought be always pure
Blessed be your lips
That your words be always true
Blessed be your heart
That your love be always clear
Blessed be your hands
That your work be always strong
Blessed be your feet
That your walk be always balanced

Fare thee well Father of all
Take our thanks with you

(snuff gold candle)

Fare thee well Mother of all
Take our thanks with you

(snuff silver candle)

Quarter Dismissal:

Fare thee well Spirit in the Center of All
Take our thanks for your attendance to that time out of time

Fare thee well Spirits of Water in the West
Take our thanks for you attendance when you sail

Fare thee well Spirits of Fire in the South
Take our thanks for your attendance into the flames

Fare thee well Spirits of Air in the East
Take our thanks for your attendance when you move the clouds

Fare thee well Spirits of Earth in the North
Take our thanks for you attendance to the mountains

Circle Dismantling:

In the North
Where the seeds begin to wake
In the West
Where the ice begins to melt
In the South
Where the sun begins to break through
In the East
Where the wind begins to warm
This Circle is open yet unbroken
