this ritual the Goddess becomes incarnate in the High Priestess.
the circle is cast, The High Priestess stands in front of the altar with her back to it. She holds the wand in her right hand
and the scrounge in her left. She crosses her wrists and crosses the wand and scrounge above them while holding them close
to her breast.
The High Priest stands in front of her and says:
"Diana, queen of night In all your beauty bright,
Shine on us here, And with your silver beam
Unlock the gates of dream;
bright and clear.
On Earth and sky and sea,
Your magic mystery Its spell shall cast,
Wherever leaf may grow,
tide may flow,
Till all be past.
O secret queen of power,
We ask your boon.
May fortune's favor fall Upon true witches all,
O Lady Moon!"
High Priest kneels before the High Priestess and gives her the Five Fold Kiss; that is, he kisses her on both feet, both knees,
womb, both beasts, and the lips, starting with the right of each pair. He says, as he does this:
"Blessed be thy feet, that have brought thee in
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the
Blessed be thy womb, without which we would
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty.
Blessed be thy lips, that shall utter the Sacred Names."
kiss on the lips, they embrace, length to length, with their feet touching each others. When he reaches the womb, she spreads
her arms wide, and the same after the kiss on the lips. The High Priest kneels again and invokes:
"I invoke thee and call upon thee,
Mighty Mother of us all, bringer of all fruitfulness;
by seed and root,
by leaf and flower and fruit,
by life and love
I invoke thee to descend upon the body of this,
servant and priestess."
this invocation he touches her with his right forefinger on her right breast, left breast, and womb, repeats the set and finally
the right breast. Still kneeling, he spreads his arms out and down, with the palms forward and says:
From the Amalthean Horn
forth thy store of love;
I lowly bend Before thee,
I adore thee to the end,
With loving sacrifice thy shrine adore.
foot is to my lip (he kisses her right foot)
Upon the rising incense smoke;
then spend Thine ancient love,
O Mighty One, descend To aid me,
without thee am forlorn."
High Priest stands up and steps backwards. The High Priestess draws the Invoking Pentagram of Earth in the air with the wand
"Of the Mother darksome and divine
Mine the scrounge, and mine the kiss;
The five point star of love and bliss
I charge you in this sign."
High Priestess should be in a trance now. This is a good time to do the Charge or the Witches' Creed. When the Charge or Creed
is finished, the Goddess must be dismissed. It is bad magical practice not to do so. The High Priest faces the Priestess and says:
"We thank you Our Lady for attending our rites.
We bid you farewell till next we call you.
