Invocation to Aries

Infant of the Springtime,
Warrior of the long spear
And the short temper,
Ram who protects his flock,
Fiery torch of First Light,
Whose gift is Bravery,
Bless us with the courage
To do what we know is right,
And to never walk ashamed.
By the power of all beginnings,
You challenge us
To defend each other from attack,
Abuse, scorn, and mistreatment,
Even if it endangers our own bodies and spirits.
May we all go forth
In courageous innocence.
Chant:
Fire burn, fire burn through me, bonfire, brush fire, lightning strike,
Fire burn, fire burn through me, fire heart, give me light.

(Let one who has been chosen to work for this ritual stand in the center of the room with a large lit red candle, of a wax that will not burn skin but only make pain, and each shall come forth and hold out their hand to receive the wax, and s/he shall say, “Have courage and hold fast,” and drip the wax upon them, until they pull away their hand. Then they shall say, “I am tested,” and stand back. At the last shall s/he receive the wax herself, and then set the candle to burn upon the altar.)
