Caileach is pronounced Coyluck (luck is pronounced as if you are clearing your throat) . This ritual will put you in contact with Caileach and the crone within you. It will help you accept age and aging. this will help you remove stuff from your life and also bring in new influences.
for this ritual you will need a black alter cloth or skull pattern alter cloth. Wear black. on your altar have the representation of the 4 elements or your elemental tools. Also have a bowl of soil to represent Caileach as the black
earth. Have pictures of skulls or ceramic skulls or even skeleton candles or candles holders. Pictures of the elderly, pictures of the mountains. Pictures of
ancient ruins, a representation of Caileach (this can be a figurine of an elderly woman or a stereotyped witch) , a candle or fire inside the cauldron or pot place an empowered candle for the purpose of banishment, if you have it dress the candle with the oil from bottom to wick. also bring this oil into the ritual. also you will need a pen or pencil and parchment paper. Parchment paper is better to burn as it is not Smokey. Also you will be needing two altar
candles they should be black. Bring in a libation bowl and some fruit like an apple and some drink like apple
juice, wine, grape juice or apple cider, a tweezer, don't forget the fire starter. If you would like to utilize a besom (broom) for this ritual go right ahead.
This should be done close or on the dark moon at night. you want the room dark but not to the point where you cant see. if you wish make yourself look old. gnarl your fingers. wear a gray wig, or you can visualize all of this as i do.
Banish the area.
light your alter candles, if you need more light then use it.
cast your circle and call in the elements.
Let yourself feel old. look at all the representations on your alter. let yourself feel old. visualize your gray hair, the wrinkles etc. now say this invoking chant:
Goddess of the black earth"
Chant it, sing it. slow than fast, build up the energy. call to her from your very being with this chant. look at the altar, close your eyes, feel this chant, flow with it, think of skulls, the black soil, the tall and lofty mountains, huge boulders, the dying, death, the elderly, see a young woman become old, chant and chant "Old Woman, Dark Mother, Goddess of the black earth." When you feel it is time to stop then stop or when you feel contact is made. if you want
say another invocation to her. Give her praise, tell her you wish to except your inner wisdom, ask her if she will help you deal with your hurts and any repression you may have, tell her you accept the fact that you will age the
aging comes wisdom and experience. Ask her to place some of herself inti your doll or figurine or statue of her. Welcome her. Now get used to being old in this ritual.
Now place your hands above the cauldron and call out while sending energy down
"Cauldron of transformation, I call you to take away this misery and replace it with something positive."
now take your pieces of parchment paper on a small piece, make it small, and write what you want to get rid of, concentrate hard on it. rub some of the banishing oil on it. Now place it into the candles flame see this negativity burn away, be happy about this. you may wanna hold it with the pair of tweezer then when its fully aflame drop it into the cauldron. Visualize the negativity gone and something better has come into your life. like if someone gossiped about you see yourself vindicated and their lies are seen as just that; lies.
One negative thing per piece of parchment paper. Only banish up to three things as you don't want to scatter your energy. when you are done with this part
dance, jog, or walk around the circle counter-clockwise ; you can use a broom, or our hands, sweep while you are diminishing the negativity you want out of
your life. while you build up energy. when you start to feel the energy big time or when you're ready STOP. send out
your requests to the heavens above. ground it out. Now this time walk, jog or dance clockwise around the
circle. sweep your hands towards you (do not use your broom) . do all of this with joy. Visualize the positivity coming into you life. see your self with the positive things you want. Act like you have them already. Build up the energy. when you cant do this anymore or when you feel that its enough. STOP. send out the energy to do its work and now ground. Now come back to your alter and consecrate the food and drink with a prayer to Cailleach. if you wish bless both food and drink with incense and water go ahead. Hold athame or wand in right hand and chalice of the drink in the left hand or you may do the Great Rite use either your wand or athame and say:
"as the wand/athame is to the God so is th chalice to the Goddess."
Now place the wand/athame inside the chalice and say
"together they bring joy, abundance and life."
Now take a sip of the drink. Now place your athame or wand on top of the food and say a prayer of blessing.
Offer some of the food and drink to Cailleach. You may now commune with the goddess more or if you are with other coveners you may talk about how you feel
about the crone, the ritual, and what you experienced or you may all commune with Cailleach. when all is finished thank and release Cailleach. then thank &
release the elements and uncast the circle. Take the remaining ashes and scatter them to the winds. It is finished. Try not to keep remembering what you did, let
the powers that be do the work that is needed to be done. Otherwise you will dilute the energies.
You may adopt this for coven use.
