Basic Ritual Structure

Every magickal tradition has its own rituals and methods of raising, manipulating, grounding energy. The following is a basic structure of writing a ritual and it is inspired by the tradition of the Golden Dawn. A full set of instructions can be found in the book The Essential Golden Dawn, written by the Ciceros, published by Llewellyn in 2004

Cleansing bath

Take a bath before ritual and dress in the ritual robe.

Create a Shrine

Shrine

Shrine is a sacred surface/table that is used only for one God or Goddess and it is mainly for devotional work, praying and offerings. For creating a shrine you will firstly need a surface like a table or a bookcase section, where you will add items corresponding to the specific deity. The table could be either put at the center of the room or against the wall of the room, traditionally looking at the east. On the table must be put a depiction of the God or the Goddess. This depiction can be either a statue or a cornice with a printed image of the deity. The printed image version is used when there is not a statue of the God available to buy.

Invocation using PGM XII

Goddess Hekate. The invocation I am going to write derives from the PGM XII 238-245. It is an invocation to the almighty God, but I have modified it slightly to invoke the Goddess Hekate. The invocation is very beautiful, truely poetic. I have added the invocation to a well structured ritual, for anyone who wants to follow it or modify it according to its magickal tradition.

Rite of Her Sacred Fires 2016

The Rite of Her Sacred Fires (ROHSF) is an annual celebration honoring the Luminous Goddess of the Crossroads, Hekate. It was written by the very famous Sorita D'Este and performed in Full Moon 2010 for the first time. Sorita created that ceremony after a vision she had. Every year more and more people celebrate the ROHSF from all over the world lighting candles to honor the Goddess Hekate and to express their will for a better understanding of Her Mysteries. Everey year the magickians who perform the Rite put themselves to a global map.

The ceremony has been published in the devotional anthology, "Her Sacred Fires", published by Avalonia Books. It is available online in translation to many languages.

Invocation to Selene

I used the Homeric hymn to Selene, the Orphic hymn to Selene and the Idylls of Theocritus as the main sources of inspiration in order to write the following invocation.

Cleanse your space.

Erect the temple.

Anoint your forehead with pure olive oil shaping a crescent moon. 

Make the gesture of invoking/praising.

Invocation to Selene

Sister of Helios and Eos
you with the long wings
who wear a long clad.

Offerings Ceremony

This is my first contribution on the blog! It is symbolic as well as important, because our connection with the Goddess is the most important thing for our magick to work and for our lives to harmonize with Her.

Theurgy and Philosophy are two different methods which lead to the union with God.
