Spheres Of Light

Full Moon in Gemini
Midsummer Celebration

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan
(December 12, 2008)



This Gemini Full Moon is a time to celebrate our diversity in oneness; it is a great time for a party and to be the radiant Light that we all are. Tonight is a time to show gratitude for the blessings of our life and the abundance that we receive.

Tonight we will connect to the Fey. Long ago, in a time and place as different from now as day from night, the Midsummer was a time that stirred the Faerie folk to come and interact with the mundane world and the humans. It is a night when the Fey roarn the land, for though they come and go as they please, they are still a part of the other realm and this is a particularly strong time to for them to contact us.

Tonight, we will be focusing our attention on our Faerie friends, those elemental beings who inhabit both the physical and the ethereal realms.

The Faeries have great wisdom to teach and joy to bring to the mortals. It is a fact that when you believe in faeries, you encourage them to visit you. It is said that the more you believe in faeries the more often they will come to visit you.

There are fairies of all types and some Faeries are, a little more mischievous than others, so care and consideration are always advisable when dealing with them. The faeries of course love a good party, and the night of the summer solstice was a night when the faeries and the humans got together to celebrate the universal oneness of their being with dancing, singing, chanting, drumming, trance work, meditation, fires, divinations, rituals, and of course eating and drinking, especially good faerie mead or English beer!

Tonight we will invite the fey to join us in our Midsummer celebration, we will invite them to participate with us in opening to the wider powers of the universe. We will be safe and happy and at one with Spirit in this rite, receiving and giving back to the Universe, and the Divine in ourselves, and in each other.
