Rite / Ritual of Mid summer ( Litha )

Rites and rituals are used by Pagans of all paths and honor the height of summer.  The pagan name for this celebrations is Litha.  Please enjoy using the below rite/ritual to celebrate Litha!

The longest day
The sun holds sway
The fires burn to emulate Day

Like the flowers we turn towards the light
Of power and grace
Our soul takes flight

One with the waters that flow to the sea

One with the beasts of the field and forest

One with the fields of grain and wild flowers

One with the very bones of the Earth before us

Round we go now
let the fires be lit

To the circle we go
May the air give us breath

Spin and play with fires
dancing grace

Flow into my arms
Like waters embrace

Feel the Earth's heart beating beneath your feet

South the blaze of summer's embrace
Warm with thy grace this sacred place

West the Cooling waters of ease
I swim down your lanes of crystal planes
to seek refuge in your flowing arms

North the land of midnight sun
hold high the torch of the lands life
and lighten away the shadows

East the playfulness of Airs dance
the leaves rustle at my feet
Blow clean this space of healing grace

Dance we now around the flames...
in the land of midnight sun...flowers in our hair...
dance till the human form falls away...
and we become one with the spirits within

Raven... messenger of the Gods...
bring us the signs we need to know
to heal the Earth and all mankind

Wolf...graceful wise one...
bring us the way of the pack that we may be strong
To do the Great work...of peace

Tiger ..whose eyes burn in the the night..

To bring back the balance
to what has fallen in the darkest night

Snake...the ever new..

that we may ever be fresh for the task ahead

Whale..singer of the deep
Sing us a song of life that we may keep the faith
Rise up my soul to Know the leviathans peace

Spider.. spinner of fates...
show to us the cord that binds us
The web woven fine...
glorious and divine.....that unites us

Coyote...singer of nights song..
teach us to laugh even when things go wrong
Even when life is not as we hope..
to laugh to sing and bring joy ...the coyotes smile

Owl.. night flyer.. keeper of secrets...

when to be still.. let us learn the wisdom of the will

Bee keeper of honeys secret...

whose sweetness is ever bright...
show us the way through the night

Freedom for the spirit..in all the forms of life..
four footed, flyers and swimmers in the light

Dance we now all... in Moonlights embrace..

Dance we the dance of life
we seek the wisdom of the fates
Raven feathers fly on through the night
Black on black .. yet we see the light

Dance we for crystal clarity
for the minds sake we ask it
Swimmers in the lake of understanding
We seek to flow with the current of thought

Dance we for the insight
to walk all paths with grace
Light footed Tiger in the grass
Seeking wisdom in the hidden places

Dance we to shed the old
like the snake.. to become new and whole
with each step we take we are new and given
freedom to take any road as a new being

Free flows the wine of wisdom
Sweet Flowers heady perfume
Around my head the sunlight blooms
While the bee self gathers the nectar of knowledge

A Time to love, A time to grow
time to become all that we can know

Blessed are the walkers of the sunlight's grace

Blessed are the seekers after wisdom's embrace

Hail the fire that warms the night
we thank you for thy bright light of freedom

Hail the waters flow

Hail the Earths steady heartbeat
we thank you for thy solid protection and wisdom

Hail the Winds refreshing embrace
we thank you for thy cleansing touch and inspiration

Hail to thee Great Mother
whose bloom is on my face
Hail to thee Great Father
whose cool thought fills this space

Hail to all creatures great and small..
My teachers in other skins
I thank you all

Fly we now from this place
Fired by the thoughts of grace
Swimming thur the waters of peace
Treading the path we call life On Earths embrace

Hail and Blessed be one and all

Eclipse Rite / Ritual before Samhain

Samhain (Halloween) is a special time for all Pagans.  It is the birth of our new year.  Enjoy the below as you celebrate the Pagan New Year!

Eclipse Rite before Samhain

Bright the moon shadows
That softly steals the light
As the eclipse of Autumn
Runs round tonight

Greetings Great Mother
on this night of power
May your love shine bright tonight

Hail blessed Father
on this night of shadows
May your wisdom help us see the light

Wisdom we seek
Enlighten us we pray
before the eclipse has faded away

Like the passing of moments
day by day does tread
So too our lives, let not one moment be shed
Lost like the wisps of forgotten lament

Light high the fire
May the warmth be blessed
We seek the lights of wisdom
May fires light caress

Lift high the Chalice
Full of Autumn wine
We seek our souls tomorrow's
in the reflection of thine

Pile high the fruits of Earths bounty
May no man know hungers bite
We seek full bellies of enlightenment
May the souls food be right

Hear the leafless trees clatter
In the wind so bright
May we hear the song of understanding
In the winds winter song tonight

Light and dark the moonlight flows
Open are we to the new and the old

A time of changes
A time of light
A time to make choices
A time to shine bright

A time to reflect on the year gone past
A time to seek forgiveness for trespass
A time of deciding what is really true
A time to settle ills and all things we rue

A time to let go of illusions and lies
A time to seek out wisdom that gives us the will to fly
A time to seek our freedom
A time to seek out what lasts

A time to spend in the timeless moment
Between tomorrow and the past

Hail Great Mother on this night of nights
We seek to be filled with your light
Show to us the pathway
Show to us the Right
Let the stones of the years past pains
Be swept from our path tonight

 We Lit high the fire
By the warmth we are blessed
We sought the lights of wisdom
Blessed is the light that caressed

We Lifted high the Chalice
Full of Autumn wine
We sought and found our souls tomorrow's
in the reflection of time

We Piled high the fruits of Earths bounty
 No man knew hungers bite
We sought full bellies of enlightenment
We found the souls food to be right

 We Heard the leafless trees clatter
In the wind so bright
We heard the song of understanding
In the winds winter song tonight

Blessed be
