Spheres Of Light

Ostara/Aries Full Moon Ritual

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan
(Friday 7 October 2011)



This Aries full Moon Circle will have us stepping out of our creative imagination into the moonlight, deep in the magical woods where Pan, the horned god plays his flute. We will join Diana, the goddess of the moon, in the magical dance of Spring.

We will utilize this moon’s beauty to create a new way of being, which inevitably births a new way of manifesting our desires.

We call to the Moon Goddess Diana. Lovely Lady touch us with that first sense of Spring. Awaken once more that sense of wonder in ourselves and in our lives.

Meditation on Pan & Diana

The Great Rite

Man: As the Lady and Lord are joined together the Earth is renewed.
Woman: I hold the power of creation in my hands. (holds chalice)
Man: I hold the power of creation in my hands. (holds athame)
Woman: We perform the Great Rite to remind ourselves of the Ultimate Mystery and the Universal Power.
Man: Knife to Chalice
Woman: Male to Female
Both: Creation is sacred. (Knife is plunged into chalice.)
Both: Blessed Be.

Cakes and Ale

Man: Lord and Lady bless this cider we are about to drink. May it warm our hearts and bodies preparing us for the Spring. Blessed Be!

Woman: Lady and Lord bless these cakes we are about to eat. May they nourish us as we prepare for another turn of the Wheel. Blessed Be!

We can enter this time of the year by tenderly reclaiming childhood - pampering and honouring our child within - and just play and have fun, remembering the freedom and joys of childhood.

Now, in the playful spirit of the season, we're going to dance, and blow bubbles!

Intent

Think of what you want to bring into your life, and blow that intent into the bubbles to send your wishes off into the universe to manifest ...and have fun!
