Casting Directions for ‘Demeter’s Blessing’
Demeter is the goddess of the woods, Earth and harvest, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth in Greek mythology. Demeter was frequently called in prayer when a farmer or landowner wanted his territory to be blessed, to ensure fertility and his plants/crops to thrive.
In this spell, you can call upon her to bless your garden, your property, or even something as little as a plant. Any kind of land or vegetation which you wish to thrive.
Firstly, light your green candle. Green is used to represent prosperity, wealth, nature and luck.
The picture of this cornucopia could be printed off Google, or you can take a picture of a cornucopia you may have physically. If you like, you could even draw it if you’ve got good artistic skills. The cornucopia is used as it’s one of Demeter’s symbols, as it symbolizes abundance and nourishment.
Put the picture of the cornucopia in the front of the candle. Once you’ve done so, grab your miniature sheaf of wheat and set it on the *left * hand side of this paper- it must be on the left side. Then, collect your bunch of grapes, apple, orange and two plums and place them on the *right* side of the picture. After that, chant:
Great goddess of the harvest, forests and Earth,
I call you to kindly ask your blessing on ______. (the matter you want to be blessed).
I have the image of this cornucopia in your honour, to represent abundance.
I have a sheaf of wheat in your honor, to represent fertility.
I have a green candle in your honor, to represent prosperity, the Earth and luck.
O’ Demeter, I request of you to bless this sheaf of wheat, and when I scatter the ashes of it upon ______, may my _______ be blessed for abundance equally. With your blessing let my ______ thrive!
In return, I offer you the fruit, and my eternal thanks.”
Once you have finished the chant, place the sheaf of wheat in a bowl (you may cut it up to fit), and hold the candle over it. Allow the wax of the candle drip on to the wheat for a few seconds.
Next, set the wheat alight using the candle. Make certain all of the wheat has turned into ash once the fire has burned out.
After that, go outside (taking your bowl of wheat ashes, fruit to offer and spade with you). Using your spade, dig a little hole in the floor, and lower your fruit into the hole. Then, cover it up with the thing that you awakened. Say:
“Demeter, I provide this fruit to you in thanks for your blessing.”
As soon as you feel you have been acknowledged (you may repeat the chant slowly until you feel you have been), leave the area that you have just put the fruit in.
Now, using your ashes of wheat, scatter the ashes on the plantlife of crops that you need blessing. If it’s a small, potted plant, scatter the ashes over the plant and to the pot. However, if this is a large area of land that each of the ashes cannot cover, throw the ash in the air around the area. Proclaim:
“Let the ashes that Demeter has kindly blessed ensure abundance, survival and my ____ thrive. I thank Demeter, and she’s in my favor forever.”
*_____ Represents the matter you wish to be blessed, insert the title of the matter in the place of where you see this. *
