Spheres Of Light

Revealing the Self Through Community

Ritual written* and led by Gwyneira Morgana
(August, 2005)

INTENT

This month, we celebrate Leo/Aquarius Full Moon. At this time we can understand that the Full Moon is a time when opposing energies culminate, offering us the opportunity to experience, explore and potentially resolve the conflicts  represented and initiated by the signs concerned. In this instance, we can know that the Leo Sun is seeking to illuminate our individuality, or creativity and uniqueness, while the Aquarian Moon reflects this sense of identity through our experiences as a group. This Full Moon then teaches us the manner in which the group reveals the true nature of the individual, each individual being able to see themselves reflected in the whole.  We then will seek to blend our energies - to experience a group dynamic.  Each of us then will ideally experience and note our uniqueness within the group.

Indeed, we are not islands, and often the way that we experience group dynamic, and the reflection of ourselves within a group will tell us much that solitary reflection could not.

Please, if you enjoy the energy of the evening...make sure that you  pursue an increased awareness of the energies worked with.  Worship - attaching worth to higher forces is an essential aspect of continuing evolution.

Our intent then will be through our experience of the group to clarify the expression of ourselves. In this way, we will see THE SELF REVEALED THROUGH COMMUNITY

CIRCLE CASTING

After smudging, each person enters the circle, finding a place that is comfortable.
After grounding and centering, the salt, water, incense and candle are blessed by those who are calling the corresponding quarters.
After then all has been blessed, the circle is cast first with incense, and then with salt water.
Then all together honour this land in song...

Song
Gundrah A oo noo Nungeenah tya
Gundrah Lah oo oo noo
Yahma koora, yahma koora
Nungeena tya
Yahma koora

Replenishing, revitalizing

WORKING


As together we feel the forces that have gathered, we can begin to integrate and share these energies buy singing:

WE ARE ALIVE
We are alive, as the Earth is alive,
We have the power to create our freedom
If we have courage, we can be healers
Like the Sun we shall rise
If we have courage, we can be healers
Like the Moon we shall rise
We are alive, as the Earth is alive,
We have the power to create our freedom
We have the courage, we are the healers
Like the Sun we shall rise
We have the courage, we are the healers
Like the Moon we shall rise

With energy thus beginning to raise, we will begin to focus that as a group energy. We will circle around, singing and allowing our energy to knit. Take care to feel it as such, but to also notice your own strand of energy that is being woven in.

WE ARE ONE
We are one
With the Sun
With the earth
Mother Earth

Finally, all once more at rest...we will use the following chant to focus our awareness on gaining sight of our own strand of energy within the groups...

I am me
I see me
Me see I
Me
I see me
