Thursday This Is Your Spell – Spell For the Binding of A Union

Spell For the Binding of A Union

There are two kinds of union. One is temporary, for this lifetime or for part of this lifetime. The other kind is the Eternal Marriage, which brings reunion across time, through reincarnation. The Eternal Marriage is a soul mate thing that should not be undertaken lightly – making it with the wrong person can adversely affect your karma. So can making it without reciprocation. Making it with more than one person can make for a tumultuous love life in future incarnations.

Be careful.

To work the spell, write both names on a piece of papyrus or good quality paper.  Bind it with red thread and burn it with herbs of love or Venus as you recite the spell. Bury the ashes beneath a tree, or scatter them near the pyramids in Egypt. It is an Arab proverb that ‘time laughs at history, but the pyramids laugh at time’. This is an eternal spell, unless you alter it.

Aphrodite Goddess of Degraded Love and the sanctity of marriage make our cup to runneth over, and bless us with your Love.

Aphrodite, rising from the wine-dark sea, grant us health and fertility, fidelity and trust, grant us wealth and virility, honesty and lust.

Aphrodite, bless this union, make our two hearts beat as one – make the flames of passion burn without burning us, hot without hurting us, blaze without blinding us, fire without end.

Aphrodite, force of nature, let us love each other so long as we shall live, let us give each other all we have to give, let us be together in this life and the next.

Aphrodite, Queen of Beauty, we do you honor each time we make love, make our bond to last forever, grant us eternal Love.

Aphrodite, Goddess of the windblown foam, give us healthy children and a happy home.

Aphrodite bless this union and smile upon our Love..

Friday Form A Circle – Hand Fasting Ritual

April 16, 2010 at 9:11 am (Beginnings, Beltane, Blessing, Circle, Friday, Handfasting, Love, Magic, Marriage, pagan, Ritual, Witch)

Hand Fasting Ritual
Source: Banshee from
Seasons of the Moon
Found at Daughters of Earth Wisdom Coven Website

Beltane is a special time of year, with love and lust in the air. Beltane, because of its association with fertility, love, and sexual desire, was seen as an excellent time to marry one’s beloved. If you are considering having a handfasting ceremony, renewing your vows, or want to affirm them in a pagan ceremony, consider performing your own handfasting ritual this Beltane season!

Preparation

  • Long ribbon or soft rope (~ 3 feet)
  • Vows to exchange (written by the couple)
  • Small gifts (or rings) to be exchanged by the couple.
  • 5 rose candles (Quarter and god candle (god candle can be red))
  • 1 white candle (Goddess candle)
  • Gifts from the coven/guests for the couple

Ritual 
Cast the circle normally. Invoke the Goddess and God normally, or as below. If no HPs are available or you are a solitary, work all elements of the ritual yourself.
HPriest:

We call upon you in the guise of Eros, 
Kindler of desire, 
Bringer of love, 
to join us here and witness the bonding 
of _____and_____.

HPriestess

We call upon you in the guise of Aphrodite, 
Always desirous one, 
Sensual lover, 
to join us here and witness the joining 
of _____and _____. 
Grounding meditation

The HPriest and HPriestess motion the two people to be hand fasted to join them before the altar. Couple faces the altar.

HPriest:(to one of the couple, the female if the couple are of opposite gender)

Do you _____join us here of your own free will, to acknowledge before the Lord and Lady the bond that is shared between yourself and _____.

Person 1: (responds (hopefully this will be a yes 🙂 if not, go to closing).

HPriestess asks the other the same thing and gets response. Couple turns to face each other and join their left hands. Each now recites the vows they have prepared.

HPriest: (taking the joined left hands, and the rope)

Here before witnesses, _____ and _____ have sworn vows to each other. With this cord, I bind them to the vows that they each have made. (wrap the cord loosely around both arms) However this binding is not tied, so that neither is restricted by the other, and the binding is only enforced by both their wills. 

Couple: (turning to face each other, in unison)

Heart to thee, 
Soul to thee, 
Body to thee, 
Forever and always, 
So mote it be.

Coven:

So mote it be.

Couple unbinds their left arms. Couple exchanges the gifts they have brought for each other. Coven members and guests give couple good wishes and/or gifts. Great Rite and Cakes and Ale. Bid farewell to God and Goddess as usual, or as below.

HPriestess:

We thank you Aphrodite, for your presence among us, and as you take your leave, we ask that you leave among us, in each of us, the ability to each be sensual lover, and desirous one. 
Hail and farewell.

HPriest:

We thank you Eros, for your presence here this day, and ask, as you take your leave, that you leave in each of us, the ability to be 
a bringer of desire, and kindler of love. 
Hail and farewell.

Dismiss the Quarters, and open the circle.

Thursday This is Your Spell – To Bless And Consecrate Wedding Rings

April 15, 2010 at 9:09 am (Beginnings, Beltane, Blessing, Handfasting, Love, Magic, Marriage, pagan, Spell, Thursday, Witch)

To Bless And Consecrate Wedding Rings
Source Unknown

Needed:

  • the rings
  • bell (optional)
  • sage to smudge
  • blessings written by those to whom the rings will belong
  • chalice containing your preferred beverage for ceremonies
  • white Goddess Candle
  • black God candle
  • red candle to represent Fire
  • incense to represent Air
  • small bowl of Water
  • salt to represent Earth

To consecrate, bless and dedicate Wedding Rings to the Lord and Lady, first find the place where you wish to set up the altar. This place must not be disturbed, for it will take on sacred and holy energies, and you will not want anything to happen to this area.

Write two blessings to read to each other if you desire to and use some beautiful music if there is some available. Have a Chalice of wine on the altar to drink from after the blessing. Remember, the more energy and work that you put into your blessing ceremony, the more magical energy it will take on. You may use a bell to signify that you are beginning.

Once you have found that place smudge with sage, keeping “Love and Light” in your consciousness. Next, ask the four elements for their presence and for their blessing for your rings. Next, set up the altar, placing the rings you wish to bless on the altar gently. Arrange the candles to your liking, and the elemental representations in the appropriate locations. Once your altar is set up spend a few moments in quiet meditation thinking about what this Ring Blessing Ceremony means to you. Feel the magic around you. breathe in the Love and Light from the Lord and Lady. Visual yourself and your love for each other revitalized because of it’s presence. See yourself becoming more healthy, whole, and wise.
Say aloud the Blessings you have written for each other.
Sprinkle the rings with Salt for East; (Earth)
Pass rings over or through the red candle flame; South (Fire)
Sprinkle rings with water, West (Water)
Pass rings through Incense smoke, North; (Air)
Say something like:

"We pledge these rings consecrated to the Lord and Lady
to each other as an outward symbol of our love for each other ."

Drink from the Chalice holding it each to the others lips. Replace Chalice. When you are ready to end your Ring Blessing Ritual; sound the bell once (if you opted to use it) again, thanking all elements for their presence and assistance. Release them back to their abodes, asking harm to none on their way. Thank the Lord and Lady for their presence in your life. Take a deep breath of the fresh magic around you and aver: So mote it be!
