Pagan Palace Ritual For the First Day of Fall
From
Pagan’s Palace – link is dead

Begin by casting a circle about nine feet in diameter. In the center, erect an altar facing north. On the altar, place a candle of the appropriate Sabbat color, a chalice of water, an athame, a dish of salt, dirt, or sand, a consecrated altar bell, and a censer of incense. (The following incenses are sacred to this Sabbat: Benzoin, myrrh, passionflower, red poppies, and sage.) Decorate the altar with traditional holiday decorations such as acorns, pinecones, marigolds, white roses, and thistles. The flowers can be arranged in bouquets or garlands for the altar or circle, or made into a crown and worn on top of the head. Sprinkle a bit of salt inside the circle, and then trace the circle with a consecrated  ceremonial sword or wand, and say:

"With salt and sacred sword
I consecrate and cast this Sabbat circle.
In the divine name of the Goddess
And under Her protection
Is this Sabbat rite now begun."

Light the candle and incense. Ring the altar bell thrice with your left hand to begin the Mabon Rite and conjuration of the elemental spirits. Take the athame in your right hand, face the east, and say:

"O sacred Sylphs of the Air
And Elemental Kings of the East
I conjure Thee and bid Thee to Come
And partake in this Sabbat rite
In this consecrated circle."

Face the south, and say:

"O sacred Salamanders of the Fire
And Elemental Kings of the South
I conjure Thee and bid Thee to Come
And partake in this Sabbat rite
In this consecrated circle."

Face the west, and say:

"O sacred Undines of the Water
And Elemental Kings of the West
I conjure Thee and bid Thee to Come
And partake in this Sabbat rite
In this consecrated circle."

Face the north, and say:

"O sacred Gnomes of the Earth
And Elemental Kings of the North
I conjure Thee to and bid Thee to Come
A
nd partake in this Sabbat rite
In this consecrated circle."

Ring the altar bell thrice and then return it to the altar. Stretch out your
right arm and point the tip of the athame up to the heavens, and say:

"Air, Fire, Water, Earth,
Womb to life, death to rebirth.
The Great Wheel of the Seasons turns,
The sacred Sabbat fire burns.
And to Her we shall return."

Dip the blade of the athame into the chalice of water and then into the dish
of salt, dirt, or sand, and say:

"Blessed be the Goddess of Love,
Creatress of all things wild and free.
The warmth of Summer now must end.
The Great Solar Wheel Has turned again.
So mote it be!"

Ring the altar bell thrice to end the rite, dismiss the elemental spirits, and give thanks to the Goddess. Then uncast the circle in a counterclockwise
manner with the ceremonial sword or wand.
