This chant is off of a CD that came in a set with a recent reprint of Gerald Gardner’s two books, Witchcraft Today and The Meaning of Witchcraft. (It’s an interesting CD and contains an interview with Gerald Gardner himself.) The full title of this section on the CD was “Aradia Chanting with Patricia Crowther and Sheffield Coven.” Anyone interested in this CD should check with the publisher, Mercury Publishing, www.mercurypublishing.com.
We invoke thee
Queen of queens
Come to us
In all our dreams
Grant us peace
Grant us love
Lead thy children
Let us all
Thy secrets know
And perfect trust
Lest we turn all
Let the milk
Be spinning round
Queen of life
Where all are bound
On and on
Fill our souls
With thee are one
(Intonation of the seven sacred vowels, three times, completes the chant.)
Casting the Circle
I conjure thee, O circle of power,
As thou encircle every Tower.
That thou best a place of Truth, Joy and love,
Encircling Flight of Eagle, Hawk and Dove.
Mighty Aegis of the Lady and Lord,
Rampart of thought, action and word.
To Work in Peace, Powerful and Free,
Who walk between two worlds conjure thee;
A boundary to Protect, Concentrate and Contain,
That Power raised here be not in vain.
Wherefore do I bless thee and consecrate thee,
In the name of Cernunnos and Aradia.
—-Wiccan Chants and Incantations: Witchcraft for the Solitary Practitioner
The Moon’s energy is most intense when She reaches abundant fullness. Any magickal effort, especially difficult ones, can benefit greatly from the potency of this phase. Use the full Moon to amplify magickal intent and to give spellworkings additional power.
To seal spells performed during the full Moon, use this chant or one of your own choosing:
Abundant Mother, Moon so bright
Hear my plea upon this night.
Your fertile power lend this spell;
Make it potent, strong and well.
Crone Chant for Good Judgment
Ancient Hag, Wise Grandmother,
You of Wisdom, like no other,
Help me weigh choices with precision,
To make a good and fair decision
Show me what I need to see,
Shed some light on what should be.
And should I turn a deafened ear
Open it so I can hear
Help me feel what I should know.
Show me now which way to go.
Guide me in what I just do.
This, Old Crone, I ask of You.
Bast Chant for Liberation
Feline Goddess, Cat-like Bast,
Give me what I need at last.
Scratch through mental knots that bind,
Bring independence to my mind.
Claw through ropes that hold me tight,
Bring liberation to my life.
Help me let go of what is old
And venture forth, reborn and bold.
Help me live my life in truth.
Bast, I ask these things of You.
Chant to Hecate
The chant below bring swift justice to those who treat you unfairly. Take caution in using it, though, especially if you have also behaved inappropriately. Hecate’s justice knows no bounds. She sees to it that all involved get precisely what they deserve.
Chant to Hecate
Hecate, Dark One, hear my plea
Bring justice now, I ask of Thee!
Right the wrongs that have been done,
Avenge me now, Oh Mighty One.
Turn misfortune back to those
Who cause my problems and my woes.
And heap upon them karmic debt
Lest they all too soon forget
Their wrongful actions, words, and deed
Don’t let them get away scot-free
Bring them forth from where they hide,
Bring swift justice–weild your knife.
Hasten, Dark One: hear my plea–
Do what it is I ask of Thee.
Chant to Shield Oneself from an Enemy
For best results, say this chant three times each day for two weeks.
Space there is and space there be
Between (name of enemy) and me
By Waning Moon this space shall grow
Until she (he) no longer causes woe
For anyone, for mine, for me
As I will, so mote it be
