A New Moon Ritual - A Guide For Others To Follow

How To Perform A New Moon Ritual: Example

Many times person have asked me for a "sample" of our coven rites. For those unfamiliar with our coven and such, we have an online coven that meets approximately every two weeks in our private chat. The way that our rites are done is the text is sent out to all coven members via email with a link to the chat. When the time arrives for the rite, coven members are asked to pick one of the four elements. There usually are two postings for each element that the member will have to do. The rest of the text is done by our High Priestess (my wife) or myself, the High Priest.
Below you will find the rite that we used for the New Moon in late November of 2011. I offer this as an outline and sample to others who have asked for guidance of what to put in a rite and a general layout of what it would contain.

Actual Text Used In A New Moon Ritual

Chill the wind blows
As Autumn shows
The leafs dance in the night
Tonight we dance with them
Neath the waning light
Wind blows cold
On this Fall night
Stay a moment in your flight
Protect us now, we ask it

Fire blooms high
On this Fall night
Give a moment of your might
Protect us now, we ask it

Water flows cold
On this Fall Night
Stay a moment in your rush
Protect us now, we ask it

Earth dressed in frost
On this Fall night
Give a moment of your might
Protect us now, we ask it

Trees nearly clatter
In their leafless grace
We hear the song of life
Sing only softly
As Winter comes to light

We fear not, this coming of dark days
As the Earth Mother must rest
To bring forth life again
In her springtime to come

Pay heed and be reminded
That even the Dead seed
Holds new life
With proper care and nurture

So too do we grown
Even from a standstill
And become a new thing
Nodding in the wind

Gather the last bounty of Earth
Set store by for the morrow
To come forth in life yet again
When the time is ripe

So sing a song of sweet rest
To the Earth our Mother
And thank her for her care
That we will be there when she wakes

Wind blows cold
On this Fall night
You Stayed a moment in your flight
Protected us and we thank you

Fire blooms high
On this Fall night
You Gave a moment of your might
Protected us and we thank you

Water flows cold
On this Fall Night
You Stayed a moment in your rush
Protected us and we thank you

Earth dressed in frost
On this Fall night
You Gave a moment of your might
Protected us and we thank you.

I do hope that this helps and blesses others out there! Goddess love and blessings!
