Spheres Of Light

Calling The Teacher

Ritual written* and led by Gwyneira Morgana
(May 2005 ~ South Coast group)




INTENT
With this Full Moon honouring the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity, our awareness turns to themes regarding knowledge, communication and the expansion of our minds. Indeed, with the Sun in Gemini,  we can understand that  the essence of this part of the annual cycle is about the expression of divinity through the way in which each of it's aspects adapts to all of the other aspects.  This process of adaptation is best encapsulated through the various forms of communication in which we continually engage, this requiring us to make that which we think, feel and perceive a concrete notion so that it can be expressed. This is where Gemini's polar opposite challenges us, for behind every concrete form of expression is a broader ideal, a kind of fuzzy perception that is always expanding, challenging and developing what we think we know. This is the energy of Sagittarius - adventurous, expansive and philosophical. In deed, astrologically, this is where not only spirituality as a religious ideal exists, but where our guides, teachers and higher masters live. This Full Moon then, by connecting with our guides and teachers, we are able to challenge that which we know,  ultimately increasing our ability to adapt, to communicate and to understand. This Full Moon then, we can join together in: CALLING THE TEACHER

CIRCLE CASTING
After smudging, each person enters the circle, finding a place that is  comfortable. After grounding and centering, the circle is cast first with incense, and then with salt  water. Then all together honour this land in song

SONG

INVOCATIONS

Mighty Vivienne,
Priestess of the Deep,  Teacher, Healer,  Guide.
We ask your presence to rise up within this place,
I open myself to you now.
Bring together that which we have called,
That the cone of power may be raised,
That magic may be known and made.
We welcome you,  So Mote It Be.

Mighty Merlin,
Priest of Light, Magician, Shape-shifter, Seer,
We ask your presence to descend into this place,
I open myself to you now,
Activate that which we have called,
That the cone of power may be raised,         
That magic may be known and made,
We welcome you, So Mote It Be.

WORKING

Each of us finding a comfortable spot sits and repeats the following 9 times while allowing the energy to build as a cone of power (this cone of power is one of desire, more a vacuum than a projection, it is however a vacuum that is only suited to drawing in that which we seek) :
I call for the teachings of the old ways,
I call for the teachings of the past,
I call that the teachings of Avalon
From thee to  me impart
Be more than just a whisper,
Be more than just a trend,
Speak to  me with clarity,
Guide me as a friend.
Vivienne I call for you,
Merlin I call you too,
Restore through (in) me the old ways,
Bring to life what's old as new.

Once this cone has thus been raised, we activate it by opening
ourselves. This is done simply by "switching" from the experience of desire - actively wanting, to that of allowing, passively accepting in perfect love and perfect trust. While doing so all sing:
WE ARE OPENING
We are opening, We are opening, (x2)
We are opening up in sweet surrender to the
luminous love light of the One, (x2)

O GREAT SPIRIT
O Great Spirit,
Earth Air Fire & Sea,
You are around,
And all inside of me.


PROUD TO BE WITCHES
And we're proud to be Witches,
Risen from the past,
And we're here to share the ancient ways.
Love for all true friends of the Lady and Her Lord,
Harming none yet doing as we will.

May the peace of the Goddess be ever in our hearts.
Merry meet, Merry part & Merry meet again.
