Spheres Of Light

Full Moon in Gemini / Lunar Eclipse

Ritual written* and led by Janine
(30/11/2012)




This Full Moon circle is the last circle for the year and we will be tapping in to the Gemini full moon and a lunar eclipse. This is also the last eclipse for the year, which highlights that the aspects of the past year have been nudging us to make some serious changes. Indicating there is a turning point on the horizon in which we must take advantage of now and not miss the occasion presented.

On this night we will be journeying back to Camelot and connecting to King Arthur who will shed light on our new journey into 2013. Camelot represents an idealized era in a land where peace reigned and love prevailed and emphasised our need to cherish our hopes and our dreams. On this night our guiding beacon is Arthur, rising forth from Avalon. In the stillness of night our intuition is heightened; thus the energies of the night make it a potent time to open ourselves to the fertilising power of the Great Source, so that we may give birth to our new hope and creativity.

The Ritual

Everyone walks in pairs with beat of the drum entering the circle.

Long ago and faraway
a magical place
Camelot, where wonder
and enchantment interlaced
The first spark of noble rule
Found it’s primal trace
Through the Round Table
The Knights of Twelve did face

Born of Magic and wisdom
A perfect number, one could say
Camelot, your teachings
That lasts to this very day
Eternal hope and promise
Are with us to stay
Merlin and King Arthur
Reborn be your ways!
(Knights of Twelve by kareneisenlord)

May the Light of Arthur's love shine within our soul
Hail & Welcome

Oh Merlin, seer, prophet, guardian of the world, master of forest and magic,br> We seek your guidance and your wisdom on this night

Hail & Welcome

A circle is cast around about, spirit stay in, world stay out; a circle is cast around about, a world within a world without; the circle is cast around and around, in spirit and power we are now bound.

Goddess

Lady of the Lake, the waters that flow in your soul inspire the nobility which shapes our destiny.
Let love flow like the moon that penetrates the deepest longing of our heart.
Let us be as one tonight
Hail and Welcome

God

Arthur, King of Camelot, it is your kingdom which rules our dreams.
Arthur, we call upon your counsel and your power.
Show us the Greater Light this night,
Infuse our soul.
Hail & Welcome

Intent

The union of the physical and the spiritual in the search for love, truth & knowledge.

Meditation on Arthur

Activity

Take red & white cord & place 3 beads - tie knot and wear as a wrist band to remind you of your 3 wishes. Red represents blood, the feminine, the physical plane. White represents semen, the male, the spiritual plane.

Each participant is anointed with water from the chalice. We all partake of the wine.

The Lord of Light is not separate from mankind nor is His blood separate from your own. In this place and time each must face our self if we would drink from the Cup which overflows with the Light drawn from the Source of Life. Taste, drink, be satisfied. Brother to sister, heart to heart, Yours in life and in death. So Mote it Be.
