This spell is a method for which to ask help and declare loyalty to Nyx, Goddess of the Night.
Casting Instructions for ‘Oath to Nyx’
Smudge the altar, the candles, and yourself with the Sage. Put the Sage on the altar and let it burn out.
In case you have the apartments of your altar facing the four directions then put the four candles on the altar with blue in the North, red in the South, black only behind the blue, and white in front of the red. Purple should be placed in the middle.
In case you’ve got the corners of the altar facing the four directions then put black blue in the North, black in the East, red in the South, and white in the West. Still, purple ought to be set in the middle.
Light them in this order no matter arrangement; Black, Blue, Red, White, Purple.
Now chant the following;
“Nyx, great Goddess of the Night,
husband and lover to and of Erebus,
Mother of Moros, Thanatos, Hypnos, Charon, Nemesis, and the Fates,
I request you to accept my devotion and my love
as your follower and servant.
I ask for your protection and advice,
bringer of the night,
I ask for your wisdom and blessings.”
Re-light the Sage if it burnt out and light up the Sweet Grass. Use the Sweet Grass to smudge the altar, the candles, the rose petals, as well as yourself. Place the Sweet Grass next to the Sage and let it burn out as you visualize Nyx sending you her defense, wisdom, guidance, and blessing. When the Sweet Grass and the Sage burn out again let the petals fall from your hands to the gaps between the candles and the herbs as you chant:
“I am [your name]. I am a Priest/Priestess for my Goddess, you, Nyx, if you’ll have me. This is my request and these are my words. May this spell not undo, my faith never waver, my love never weaken. Please have me and bless me as your servant.”
If you have a dream that you feel was sent by Nyx in which you’re her follower then this charm probably worked, but be warned, if you cast this spell and don’t reveal your love and faith through your actions you may suffer from the Curse of Erebus. So act wisely and only cast if you really have love and faith for the Goddess of the Night.
