Lady Isadora's Drawing Down the Moon

by Lady Isadora

Age Group: Adult



PRIESTESS:

Be all at peace who enter here
Be all inspired who gather here
And let the Child come from within
The Child with face turned toward the Moon
For though each wears a different face
And stands upon a different point in space
Here in this Circle of the Moon
Now in this moment all are One
All are One
All are One

Lift your gaze and chant this rune:
Goddess, come down from the Moon!
(ALL: Goddess, come down from the Moon!)

Lift your arms and chant this rune:
Goddess, come down from the Moon!
(ALL: Goddess, come down from the Moon!)

Lift your hearts and chant this rune:
Goddess, come down from the Moon!
(ALL: Goddess, come down from the Moon!)

Speak with Her, yet silent be
Joined in perfect harmony.

PRIESTESS AS GODDESS:

I am the White Rose at dawn
I am the Moon and the Sea
I am All That Was, That Is, That Shall Be
Nor has any mortal ever yet seen that
Which lies beyond My Veil.
Do not look for Me too long in books
Though these may tell of Me inspiringly
Nor in tools and trappings
Though these may be beautiful and worthy symbols.
Remember that the Art Magical *is* Art
Alive and flowing and changing
Unique unto each:
Make of it a system or a doctrine
And you will only find that I am indeed
Mistress of Surprises.
Gather in secret if you must
But do not tarry overlong behind closed doors
For it is in the richness of the Earth
And the boundlessness of the Sky
That My true Temple is to be found
And the Moon and Sun and Stars
Will keep your secrets.
Look for Me within these things
But above all within your own souls
For it is there I am
And beyond...
