New Year’s Ritual Welcoming in a Year of Prosperity and Love

Welcome to the first online ritual offered by Spirit’s Edge! Wishing you all a prosperous and love-filled New Year! I would love to have you all share your experiences with this ritual on the Facebook event page, along with your candle photos or altar photos as well!

The link to the event page is: https://www.facebook.com/events/574565739281105/?ref=br_tf. The official “start” time for this online-only ritual is Noon CST on New Year’s Day, but any time after the New Moon the morning of New Year’s will be o.k. and will catch the current – think of it like a wave. The only supplies needed are a white candle and you!

If you wish to use this or a variation for a group in the future, please contact me at ravins52252@mypacks.net; this ritual may not be published elsewhere without attribution and also not without written permission from Shea Morgan.

You may substitute “I” or “me” wherever there is written “we” if you prefer; or, you may also use the “we” even if you are working this ritual solitary in order to further connect with the current of the overall ritual here on this New Year’s day or the next day. The ritual is written with the seasonal orientation of the elements, and you may of course adapt to any alignment you prefer.

Cast Circle:

(using your hand or a wand or blade, cast the circle three times, once for each world, envisioning any color of light you choose, the stand in the center creating sacred space with the closing line)

I cast this circle in the Upperworld, shining the light of the heavens into this sacred space.
I cast this circle in the Underworld, the power of the depths emanating into this sacred space.
I cast this circle in the Middleworld, as the compassionate, helping spirits gather ‘round this sacred space.
I create sacred space between all worlds, a world where all is one, all is safe and all is possible.
So mote it be.

Call Directions/Quarters:

To the North, to the Powers of the Earth,
We call to you to join this circle,
Creating a strong foundation for this ritual
Manifesting prosperity and love in all things.
Hail and welcome!

To the East, to the Powers of Air,
We call to you to join this circle,
Providing inspiration for this ritual
Bringing your wisdom and knowing for this New Year,
Hail and welcome!

To the South, to the Powers of Fire,
We call to you to join this circle,
Providing the fuel and energy for this ritual
Gifting the passion to pursue our goals.
Hail and welcome!

To the West, to the Powers of Water,
We call to you to join this circle,
Providing love and compassion for this ritual
Gifting the sight to see Love in all things.
Hail and welcome!

Call to the Lady/Goddess:

[This call may be adjusted if you are in the Southern Hemisphere by removing the references to winter and ice and snow.]

Hail to the Lady as she renews herself this winter.
Building up her energy for the growth and prosperity to come.
She wears her dress of white as the ice and snow are upon us.
Our breath catches the sharp winter air.
We breathe it in, warm it, bringing a spark of light.
We call to you Lady,
She breathes with us. Her breath marking our own.
Breathing more, together, we fan the spark
We build the spark into a great flame, a beautiful bonfire.
We bring this light into our lives and we share this light,
We light the torch of prosperity with her blessing.
We call to you, Lady, be with us, shine your light of prosperity in our lives.
Hail and welcome!

Call to the Lord/God:

[This call may be adjusted if you are in the Southern Hemisphere by removing the references to winter and snow.]

Hail to the Lord as he grows this winter.
Building up his energy for the growth and prosperity to come.
He wears his clothes of green, laying below the driven snow.
Our feet walk across the land, and we feel the pulse of his life within
We call to you Lord,
His life force pulses. His pulse marking our own.
His seeds of life fuel our seeds, together, we feed our goals.
We bring this power of growth into our lives
We burst forth the seeds of prosperity with his blessing.
We call to you, Lord, be with us, gift us with your pulse of prosperity in our lives.
Hail and welcome!

The Working:

[Light your white candle; let it burn if you can. If you need to snuff it later, then you may say something like “this working continues on the astral plane as it has on the physical plane” and then when you re-light it say “this working continues on the physical plane as it has on the astral plane”]

This circle is the circle of light and life itself.
It is the Breath of the Lady and the Life Force of the Lord.
With this sacred light, we birth ourselves and our lives anew.

On this New Year’s Day, under the light of this New Moon,
We breathe in prosperity and we feel the new and prosperous growth burst forth into our lives.
We are surrounded by love, as we share this light and love with the world.
Through this light, our cup of prosperity and love is filled.
We know that all is possible in this light
And that all happens for the highest good of all.

[Take a moment to watch the candle burn, and as you do, envision the light growing bigger and greater in your mind’s eye. You may wish to meditate or silently commune with the Lord and Lady. As the light from the candle glows, the light grows in this New Year, and the light of the New Moon grows in the sky. They bring all the prosperity and love from the Lady and Lord into your life.]

Blessed be.

Farewell to the Lord/God:

Hail and thank you to the Lord as he grows this winter.
Thank you for your seeds of life fueling our seeds and goals.
Thank you for bringing this power of growth into our lives,
as we burst forth the seeds of prosperity with your blessing.
We thank you for being with us and for your pulse of prosperity in our lives.
Hail and farewell!

Farewell to the Lady/Goddess:

Hail and thank you to the Lady as she renews herself this winter.
Thank you for sharing your stored energy for our growth and prosperity.

as we lit the torch of prosperity with your blessing.
We thank you for being with us, and for your light of prosperity in our lives.
Hail and farewell!

    Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us who joined. I am starting out the US new year feeling very blessed already. Blessed with new beginnings of friendship with you all, blessed with a great physical family as well as a spiritual family means the worlds to me. This ritual was so fitting for our day today. As I was casting and working, my husband was out cultivating our garden with all of the compost from last year and now we are off to sow grass seed before the snow hits later this afternoon. Again, thank you. many blessings to you and yours for 2014. Blessed Be!
