Goddess (mother,maiden and crone together):
Ritual (mother maiden crone):
Each woman takes up the symbol of her role in the ritual (the Crone takes the shawl and puts it on, the Maiden takes the bouquet of flowers, and the Mother takes the white candle).
The Mother lights her candle and steps forward, saying:
God of the growing and wild things,
Goddess of the brightening day
North, West, South and East (the same):
May this circle be open but unbroken
May the peace of the Goddess be ever in our hearts.
Merry Meet and Merry Part
And Merry Meet again.
