Invocation to Ishtar
by Gaia Ivorywitch
Age Group: Adult
I call to Her and none other
I call to She is who is first and last
I call to She who is Light, Breath and Darkness
She who is the Whore and the Holy One
To her have I brought offerings
I call the Mother of all, who is the Daughter, Wife and Sister
I call the Womb of Life, who is barren yet has many sons
I summon forth the Silence that is Understanding and Wisdom
I call to Ishtar, Mother of Love and Battle, Giver of Pleasure and Death
Ishtar, Beloved of Men
Come unto me, accept my offering
Show to me your face
Bestow upon me this favor
You are the Exalted One
In your Shrine are many Pillars
In your bed are many Veils
In your eyes are many Mysteries
Ishtar, Beloved and Timeless
Ishtar, take from me this burden
Ishtar, render me whole.
