Mysteries of the Divine Apprenticeship Program



Solitary New Moon Ritual

Insert after general circle casting/quarter calls and before cakes and wine. You can dance around circle, chanting the names of the Goddess.


Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna

Chant as much as you like, then kneel before the alter and say:

Dark is the night as we reach this turning point.
Here is a time of death; yet a time of birth.

Endings and beginnings
Ebbing and flowing
A journey done; a journey yet to start.

I honor now the crone-mother darksome and divine.
I give of my strength and in return see rebirth.

Arms raised, say:

Behold, the Lady of Darkness; Mother, Grand mother. Old, yet ever young. I honor and love you now and always. As the wheel turns we see birth, death and rebirth. I know from this that every ending is a beginning; every stop a fresh starting point. Maiden, Mother, Crone... you are all of these and more.

Whenever I have need of anything, I can call upon you and your Lord, for you abide within me. Even at the darkest of times, when there seems no single spark to warm me and the night seems blackest of all, You are here watching over me, in strength and in love. You are She who is at the beginning and the ending of all time. Blessed Be
