Invocation to Brid, Celtic Triple Goddess

Brid, I call you.

Oh, Bright One! I call you.

Goddess of Fire, Healing, and Inspiration, Hear my cry.

Help me stand strong like the Rowan, that I may become your Brigand and rise up against the darkness.

Oh, Bright Arrow! Guide my judgment, protect me in my wanderings.

I will remember always—Brigantia

Invocation to the Green Man of the Hazel Tree

Hail, Green Man of the Summer!
Hazel tree of the bard’s joy,
Wisdom in a nutshell,
Concentrated nourishment
Of the body and the soul.
Salmon of wisdom in Connla’s spring,
Magical crane-bag of the poets,
Diviner’s rod, searching out
The hidden mysteries
And sharing them with all who seek,
Teacher of art and science,
Knowledge and beauty bound up as one,
You show us that they should not
Ever be separated, lest we lose
On half of our selves.
Arbiter, mediator, herald
Of any side that calls you,
You teach us to see things fairly
From the bard’s perspective
Where Truth rules first and foremost
And yet can be wrapped in Story.
We hail you, sacred hazel tree,
Green Man of the Summer,
With this your gift of our sustenance.

Song: Brigantia

(Each comes forward and plants a seed in the pot of soil, saying, “Hail Green Man of the Earth!” Water is poured onto the pot, and then the rest is poured out as a libation. Ring bell and dismiss.)

The Wicca Book of Days for June 19 – The Celtic Pantheon

The Wicca Book of Days for June 19

The Celtic Pantheon

The Gods and Goddesses venerated by the European Celtic people were local divinities identified with features of the landscape, the creatures and trees that inhabited it, and the tribes that lived there (Brigantia being the Goddess whom the Brigantes worshiped in Britain, for instance). Because the Celtic tradition was oral, the nature of these deities remain imprecise but something of their individual characters survived if they were subsequently fused with Roman divinities or Christian saints. Perhaps the best know Celtic God is Cernunnos, or the Horned God.

Circles and Spirals

Circles and spirals were important mystical symbols to the Celts, representing as they did the Sun and Fire, eternity, fertility and life itself. Wear jewelry bearing one or other of these dynamic symbols next to your skin today and become infused by the energy that it emits.

Character Reference Of The Rowan Tree Sign

 

Rowan tree people have visionary minds and well defined humanitarian principles. They remain, however, self contained individuals and their vision is not always shared by the rest of humanity. Their cool temperament disguises some passionate beliefs, for they need to argue their case against bigotry and ignorance. The new moon people born during the first two weeks tend to become impatient and frustrated in this struggle toward a greater awareness. Although they may be quite reticent on a personal level, they will, nevertheless, help pioneer great social changes with reforming zeal. Full moon people born in the last two weeks are less reticent all around, but are inclined to promise more than they can deliver. This will not negate their powerful influence and inspiration, and their response to all situations is primarily directed to asserting the rights of the individual.

 

Sometimes referred to as “the whispering tree,” the rowan’s tree’s magic was well known among the Celts. Its berry is shaped like a five-pointed star, first of all, the symbol of magical protection against spells, enchantments, and glamour’s. You, too, are a magical creature, able to use your intuition and higher understanding to both enchant and protect. Trust your insights, and act upon them – even if others see you as ‘unusual’ or ‘unpredictable’. Your ability to envision the future is priceless.

Brighid Invocation

Brighid Invocation

by Mystic Amazon

 

There you are, Goddess,

With your streaming flame-red hair!

I hear the hammer of your smithy,

And the eloquent words of your poetry

Satisfy something in my soul.

I hear the chants of women

The priestesses of your sacred flame,

See smoke that carries your prophecies.

Artists, poets and musicians honor you

With the beauty of their work.

Holy Mother Brighid, Bless us!

Honor us with your shining presence,

Wash us in the waters of your healing wells.

Brigantia the warrior, give us courage!

We dance to the movement of your flames.
