Quarters Invocation (for regular rituals)

Greet the warm sun, with uplifted face
erase the shadows, brighten this place.
All Hail to the East where each day is born,
stretch out your arms and mend what is torn.
All Hail to the South, the sun heats her blood,
Embrace each other to understand love.
All Hail to the West, it's where we shall sleep,
Let go of longing, desires will keep.
All Hail to the North, a place of the night,
respect her wisdom, revealed in moonlight.
But here is the Sun, to heal us all through.
Dance in the sunlight and make your life new.

Samhain Quarters Invocation

Greet Waxing Moon, with uplifted face
dance in the shadows, brighten this place.
All Hail to the North, a place of the night,
respect her wisdom, revealed in moonlight.
All Hail to the East where each day is born,
stretch out your arms and mend what is torn.
All Hail to the South, the sun heats her blood,
Embrace each other to understand love.
All Hail to the West, it's where we shall sleep,
Let go of longing, desires will keep.
But here is the Moon, to heal us all through.
Dance in the moonlight and make your life new.

Invocation of the Goddess

Come to me Moist Mother Earth. Come to me and take your ease. You have labored long and hard to bring forth your bounty, so that I your child may survive. Come and relax, for well have you earned your rest. Eat and drink your fill, sing, dance, and be merry, for you have done well, and there is plenty for all. And, if it pleases you to ask for the favors of me as well, may you find satisfaction there too. I shout your praises, for you are the essence of fulfillment, love, and joy. You are the most beautiful, and beyond measure is your grandeur and greatness. May I never forget that I am a part of your Sacred Body, and may I work to preserve it in all of its myriad forms. All hail the Great Mother!

Invocation of the God

Come to me Lord of the Hunt, Sacred Herdsman, and Divine Smith. Put by your horn, lay aside your crook, stow your hammer, and quit your forge for now. Wipe your brow, and come find your leisure in the midst of my good company. Have a seat, put up your feet, and pour yourself a cold draught. By the virtue of your work have you earned a rest, for well have your cared for the wild beasts and domesticated flocks. And many a time has your forge burned long into the night with you hard at work creating lightning bolts of such exquisite beauty and terrible power as I have ever beheld. Join me Great Lord, and indulge yourself to the fullest. May you know no want in my presence, for thanks to you and the Goddess, I know no want. I raise my glasse high and toast your greatness. All hail the God of the Wild Magicks.
