Spheres Of Light

Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan
(October 2, 2009)





On this night we will connect to the energy of the Aries Full Moon under the guidance Amun Re and Maat. Aries the ram, was known to the Egyptians as their sacred God, Amun-Ra, who is often depicted as a Ram headed Sun god. The image of the Ram is an apt one, especially in the spring when there is boundless energy to romp, play, and butt heads with other rams. Sun in Libra reminds one of scales, which suggests the weighing of the self against the not-self in the hopes of achieving some kind of balance and equilibrium between subjective and objective consciousness.

The Egyptians found a deep significance in these scales of balance. The goddess Maat, was believed at the time of death, placing the human soul on one scale, and a feather on the other. Should the scale tip but slightly, the soul will have to reincarnate again with the goal of expiating that extra weight.

The Aries/Libra Full Moon marks the beginning of Spring, the start of a new cycle of birth, growth, death and regeneration. When the Moon is full in Aries, the Sun is shining brightly in Libra. The polarity of these two opposing signs represents knowing self in an effort to know others; thereby allowing others to truly know us. We should not be afraid to be who we are in this life. Our physical time is limited, so live from the heart, without the shackles of regret. What we believe about ourselves is what we will become.

Casting the circle...

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.

MOON - AMUN RA

I am called AMUN RA, yet every name is my name.
I am that which proceeds from the unknowable unto the unknowable, and between these am I all that might be known.  
That which was, and is, and is to come; limitless, boundless and immortal-
Omniscient, omnipresent and ineffable; I am all, the life of God and Humankind
All that hath form:  This is a shadow of my form.
All that hath awareness:  This is a fraction of my awareness.
All that bear with themselves the fire of life:  These are the sparks of my undying fire.
All that might be named:  These things have my name.
ALL - GREAT GOD AMUN RA COME TO US NOW
SO MOTE IT BE

SUN - MAAT

I am named Maat I  balance the souls of all beings
Who, weighed with the heart, reveals all things.
You stand now in the chamber of truth, You stand before the great power of justice
 We call forth the centre of truth and justice
From within and without  and we manifest it here and now
As knowledge, will and action
Through the strength and energy of our arms
May the balance of Be done!
Through the clarity of our minds May the balance
Be done!
Through the black flame of justice in my heart
May the balance of Maat
Be done! Tua Maati!
ALL - GREAT GODDESS MAAT COME TO US NOW
SO MOTE IT BE
