The full and new moon rites are a celebration of the moon and Her cycles, as well as a celebration of us.
What you will need:
Silver or white candle
White altar candle
A view or picture of the moon
Place the silver or white candle next to your altar candle.
Position your altar so that you can see the moon.
Perform a meditation.
Cast your circle.
Raise your arms over your head, palms up, while saying:
“OH GREAT MOON,I AM HERE BEFORE YOU,IN YOUR LOVING GRACE.”
Take the cauldron of earth hold it toward the moon and say:
“OH GREAT MOON,BLESS THIS EARTH.”
Take the silver or white candle and place it in the cauldron. Light it and say:
“OH GREAT MOON,HEAR ME.””OH GREAT MOON,THEE I ADORE,I HONOR,I RESPECT.”
Kneel and say:
“I HONOR YOU ON THIS SPEACIAL NIGHT.””HEAR ME. BLESSED BE.”
Now close your circle. Point your athame down and release while saying:
“MAY THIS ENERGY BE USED BY OTHER ON THEIR PATH.” “SO MOTE IT BE.”
Let the silver or white candle burn itself out.If you decide to do a spell, perform it before closing the circle and point your athame up instead of down. Then close your circle.
