The goddess become incarnate in the high priestess.
Casting Instructions for ‘Drawing Down the Moon Ritual’
After 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;
Rise bright and clear.
On Earth and sky and sea,
Your magic mystery Its spell shall cast,
Wherever leaf may grow,
Wherever tide may flow,
Till all be past.
O secret queen of power,
At this hour
We ask your blessing.
May fortunes favor fall Upon true witches all,
O Lady Moon!
The High Priest kneels before the High Priestess and gives her the Five Fold Kiss; that is, he kisses her starting with the right of each pair. As he does this, he says:
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar.
Blessed be thy womb.
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty.
For the 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 bud and stem,
By leaf and flower and fruit,
By love and life
Do I invoke thee to descend upon the body of this,
thy servant and priestess.
During 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 down and out, with the palms forward and says:
From the Amalthean Horn
Pour forth thy store of love;
I lowly bend Before thee,
I adore thee to the end,
With loving sacrifice thy shrine adore.
Thy foot is to my lip (he kisses her right foot)
my prayer up borne
Upon the rising incense smoke;
then spend Thine ancient love,
O Mighty One, descend To aid me,
who without thee am forlorn.
The High Priest stands up and steps backwards. The High Priestess draws the Invoking Pentagram of Earth in the air with the wand and says:
Of the Mother
Mine the scrounge, and mine the kiss;
The five point star of bliss and love
Here I charge you in this sign.
The High Priestess should be in a trance. This is a good time to perform the Charge or the Witches Creed. The Goddess has to be dismissed when the Charge or Creed is completed. It’s magical practice to not do so. The High Priest states and faces the Priestess:
We invite you Our Lady for attending our rites.
We bid you farewell till we call you.
