Circle of Fountains Full Moon Ritual March 2018


On Sunday, March 4th, Circle of Fountains met to celebrate the first March full moon and work on the Noviceship courses for 2019!


After presenting on ethics in witchcraft as we continue to compile our new Novice courses, we met upstairs for Abby's full moon ritual.  Abby had a special gift for us and blocked off the circle room just so she could surprise us with...


Our very own handmade scrying mirrors!  Abby went out of her way to painstakingly create each one.  We were able to choose our own by standing in front of it.


To begin, we chanted an altered version of a chant from the Carmina Gadelica, Jewel of Virtues, as seen in Lady of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

"In the east our Lady Moon is rising...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Holy be each thing on which Thy light shines...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be each deed Thy light reveals...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be Thy light upon the hilltops...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be Thy light upon field and forest...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be Thy light upon all roads and all wanderers...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be Thy light on the waves of the sea...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Fair be Thy light among the stars of heaven...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Mother of Light, fair Moon of the seasons...
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.
Come to us, Lady! Let us be Thy mirror!
Jewel of guidance, jewel of the night.

Lady, come down to us! Lady, be with us!
Lady, come to us now!"


At this point, we raised our scrying mirrors up towards the moon.

"Lady, Thou who art nameless yet called by many names,
Thou who art without form yet hath many faces,
As the moons reflected in our mirrors become a single image,
So may it be with Thy reflection in our hearts.

Lady, we call to Thee! Come down to us, be with us here!
Lady, as Thou hast blessed us we thank Thee...
Let us carry forth that blessing into the world."


And with that, our mirrors were charged and ready for scrying!  We released the moon and wished the circle hail and farewell.

We hope everyone had a wonderful full moon as well!  Best wishes to you all!
