Circle Power

Witchy Comments=Circle Power

I stand before the Goddess as her daughter
My head bowed before her love and light
I do not stand alone
My Sisters stand with me
My family stands with me
The Witches from the past are present
I humbly ask for her presence in my home
I raise my hands and extend love to all
I ask the Goddess to send her protection to me
I ask her to encircle my home
I ask her to hold me close

With the power of my Circle, I cast out evil.
Return it to its source.
With the power of the Goddess, I cast out pain.
Return it to its source.
With the power of the Witches, I cast out hate.
Return to its source.

I turn East
I turn South
I turn West
I turn North

Under the Fullness of the Moon my home is safe
Under the Fullness of the Moon I am safe
Under the Fullness of the Moon my family is safe
Under the Fullness of the Moon my Sisters are safe.

The Goddess holds me and I am safe…

Blessed Be

Amazing Grace

burning_times_01

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the Earth
that bore a witch like me!
I once was burned, now I survive,
was hung and now I sing.

T’was grace that drew down the moon
and grace that raised the seas.
The magic in the people’s will
will set our Mother free.

We face the East and breathe the winds
that move across this earth.
From gentle breeze to hurricane
our breath will bring forth the change.

Turn towards the South and feel the fire
that burns in you and me.
The spirit’s flame will rise again
and burn eternally.

We greet the West, our souls awash
in tides of primal birth.
Our tears and blood, our pain and love
will cleanse and heal the earth.

Reach into the North and know your roots
down deep ancestral caves.
We find the wisdom of the Crone,
Of circles we are made.

Amazing earth, enduring life,
from death into rebirth.
T’is earth I am and earth I love
and earth I’ll always be.

Amazing grace, how sweet the Earth
that bore witches like we.
We once were burned, now we survive,
were hung and now we sing.

Goddess bless, so mote it be,
Our magic spirals on.
Merry meet and merry part
and merry meet again.

Summer Invocation

Litha Comments & Graphics

Summer Invocation

 

Fireflies and summer sun
in circles round
we become as one.
Singing songs at magic’s hour
we bring the winds
and timeless powers.
Turning inward, hand in hand
we dance the hearth
to heal the land.
Standing silent, beneath the sky
we catch the fire
from out God’s eye.
Swaying breathless, beside the sea
we call the Goddess
so mote it be!

(This can be used as a chant, part of a spiral dance, or to invoke quarters.)

We Are Witches All

Witchy CommentsWe Are Witches All

 

We sing and dance and hold our rites,
We live and love together.
We go sky-clad or wear our outer robes
If it is chilling weather.
About the altar we do dance;
We praise The Gods
We love and ever do, we give
Our thanks to the sun.
And moon above, We are The Craft;
Love The Craft; We are Witches All.
Join us.. In Our Circle For We Are Witches All.
Walk into our Circle and feel the love Bound,
And Meet The Lord and Lady who guide us in our Rounds;
” An’ Harm None, Do What Thou Wilt.”
It is The Wiccan Rede.
We fear no foe for love we show,
In thought and also Deed.
Our words of thanks, our songs of praise,
We offer them in pray’r.
We sing their praise, we ask their help;
We know that they are there.

13 Faces of the Moon

Wiccan13 Faces of the Moon

13 Goddesses of the moon
Is to whom I dedicate this poem to
Astarte, Bast, Cybele, Diana, Eris, Freya, Gaia,
Hathor, Isis, Juno, Kali, Lakshmi and Maat
13 faces of the moon

Is to whom I dedicate this poem to
One of them whom is
She who wears the crescent horns
Astarte, who is our protectress for 29 nites

One of them whom is
The Lady we hold great celebrations for
Bast, who looks over the black cat of the dark nites
Bast, who watches over us for a steadfast 30

The Lady we hold great celebrations for
As we dance and drum for Her
Ecstatically for 29 nites
Is Cybele, our great Mountain Mother

As we dance and drum for Her
We are loving devotional Priestesses
Of Our Mother of all Creatures
Diana, who shines down on us for 30 nites

We are loving devotional Priestesses
Who sees Her lovely face in the moon
For 29 continuous nites of chaos
As Eris, the Goddess who discords us into perfect
rhythm

Who sees Her lovely face in the moon
For she is our large wombed-earth mother
And for 30 nites She keeps by our side
As we fly with Freya on a magical ride

For She is our large wombed-earth
For She is our mother and daughter
For She is the earth herself born from chaos
For She is Gaia who for 29 nites, lites the sky

For She is our mother and daughter
Who wears a sun disk glowing between horns
As the moon shines from Her for 30 nites
Shines from Hathor, our Great Goddess

Who wears a sun disk glowing between horns
For She is our Goddess of the moon
Who shines for 29 nites on the Nile’s moonlit waters
Where Osiris’ love reflects for her, our Queen Mother,
Isis

For She is our Goddess of the moon
Our Mother of the dark
Who shines down on us for 30 nites
For she is Juno, our lady of the sky

Our Mother of the dark
Who is one face of our Great Devi
She is Kali Ma
Our Goddess who dances the dance of death for 29 nites

Who is one face of our Great Devi
Who has many names
And for 30 days
She looks down upon us with the lovely face of Lakshmi

Who has many names
Whom we all love and cherish
For all these Goddesses that starts with Astarte whom
Stays around for 29 days and ends when we see
the luminous face of Maat

Whom we all love and cherish
For they are the 13 Goddesses of the moon
Astarte, Bast, Cybele, Diana, Eris, Freya, Gaia,
Hathor, Isis, Juno, Kali, Lakshmi and Maat
For they are the 13 faces of the moon

The Goddess is Alive

Goddess Comments & GraphicsThe Goddess is Alive

Moon shines down upon a sea of Light,
Shifting sands lay singing in the Heart of the Night.
I looked upon a scene that gripped me to the core,
White-clad maidens below were dancing on the shore.

Sweet sounds slipped from moon-lit throats,
Wind whipped hair abound,
Lit by the light within and without,
The Women circled ’round.

As I stood, water engulfed my feet,
My body swayed to your Heavenly Heart beat.
Wind and wave and fire light,
Paled in my mind Earthly delight.

Time slipped by me as you held your embrace,
And windblown spray covered my face.
Protected deep within your Womb,
I could feel the tender pain of Life’s bloom.
Candles flared high as the Dance progressed,

Deep inside with a healing touch you blessed.
All around, wind, wave and fire shouted of your life,
Your light speared deep within, soothing my strife.

Divine Mother, Goddess of Light,
To you I come seeking protection from the night.
Come home to shelter within your arm,
Surrounded by Love, hidden from harm.

Holy Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth,
From you we all trace our Birth.
Heavenly Goddess, light from above,
Shine down upon us, we pray for your Love.
