Valentine’s Day & Full Moon Ritual of Love

Welcome to the second online ritual offered by Spirit’s Edge! 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! I wanted to share this ritual a little earlier this time to allow more time for preparation of any personal working within this ritual.

The link to the event page is: https://www.facebook.com/events/193896287470469/. Please keep in mind that the Facebook event page is public. Alternatively, you may post on the Spirit’s Edge: A Seeker’s Salon group page – all are welcome to join the group page – at https://www.facebook.com/groups/143014982512092/.

The official “start” time for this online-only ritual is 7 p.m. CST on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, but any time the day prior, that day or night, and the next day, will be o.k. and will catch the current – think of it like a wave. Though Friday is ideal for Valentine’s Day and Friday as a day of Love. The only supplies needed are a pink candle and you!

If you want to join the exact time, you would calculate your timing for your working of the ritual based off of your time zone compared to the CST time zone. However, rituals also work great in waves of energy, so if you wanted to do the ritual at 7 p.m. in your time, that’s great too. And if you can’t do that, as I mentioned, you may do your ritual that day with the intention of sending the focus of the ritual energy to the 7 p.m. CST time – as all times are one time and all places are one place. Though Friday, Feb. 14 is ideal, you could also do it on the day prior or the day after.

A Full Moon in the sign of Leo, Valentine’s Day and Friday (correspondence of Love)…What better time to come together for our second Spirit’s Edge online ritual?! We will be working with Love in its different facets – love of ourselves, love for others and unconditional love for all. Right after Imbolc is a perfect time to set the state for Love to grow this spring. There also is a portion of the ritual where you will have the opportunity to do your own personalized working as part of the ritual.

You will need a Pink candle for Love – any type or size of pink candle. If you do not have pink, you could choose a different color, like white or red. Perhaps you may wish to carve the word “Love” into the candle. You might wish to anoint the candle with essential oils or essences or place herbs for love under or on the candle. Any other altar tools or set up are up to you.

This is our second online ritual, and the first one was a resounding success by all accounts. If you are curious about our first online ritual went and how it works, you may wish to check out that event page too at https://www.facebook.com/events/574565739281105/ to see all the posts and how it worked for the first ritual. That will give you a much better idea of what to expect for this ritual. Also, there were additional posts shared in our Spirit’s Edge: A Seeker’s Salon group page.

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 Valentine’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, then 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.

Wrapping us in your winged cloak
Warmth of your breath
The beating of your heart
Holding us safe in your arms
Our hearts beat in time with yours
With the love of the divine
Our blood pulses with life
The life blood of the Universe
We call to you Lady
Your heart beats with us. Your heartbeat marking our own.
A drumbeat through time.
We add our drumbeat to yours,
Our rhythms unite as one.
And we build this song of love.
We bring this song, this love into our lives and we share this love.

The Working:

[Light your pink 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 of Love.
It is the union of the Lady and the Lord.
It is their life force, merged as one, living within our breath and soul
Divine love, flowing within and without, uniting us
In the most precious and pure power in the Universe
The power of Love.

On this Valentine’s Day, under the light of this Full Moon,
We feel the fulfillment of Love within ourselves.
We see and know the potential of Love all around us
In all things, in all kingdoms and in all worlds.

As we stand under this moon,
We feel the life blood of the Lady and Lord pulse within us,
Our Cup fills with the infinite Love of the Universe, of all things,
The Cup that never is depleted, the Fount that never ends
It flows over into our lives, flowing and spreading its blessings
As we feel the Love of the divine,
We know, we feel,
And we believe the Love within ourselves
The Love for ourselves and for all things.

From this place, filled with the divine, filled with Love
The blessings of the Lord and Lady united within us
The blessings of this moon that flows over us, bathing us in its light
We are Love. We are Light.
We know that all is possible in this light
The Light of Unconditional Love.
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 on this Valentine’s Day, this Friday, this Freya, Venus and Aphrodite’s Day of Love, under the light of the Full Moon in the sky. They bring all the Love from the Lady and Lord into your life, the Love within yourself and the Love for all things, for the animals, the plants, the crystals, the compassionate beings of all creation and of all worlds.

If you wish to do a personal working or meditation or prayer, this is the time. Speak from your heart. As with all things, if you are seeking love in the form of a relationship, be careful what you ask for, and if that is your goal, perhaps you may wish to focus your work here on yourself to be the person who you want to be in order to attract the kind of person that you wish to find, or on the traits you are seeking in a relationship, for the highest good, harming none.]

Blessed be.

Farewell to the Lord/God:

Hail and thank you to the Lord
The Lord of the greening Earth
Your heart beats with us. Your heartbeat marking our own.
A drumbeat through time.
Thank you for adding your drumbeat to ours
Building this song of love with us,
As we bring this song, this love, into our lives.
We thank you for being with us and for shining the light of your love in our lives.
Hail and farewell!

Hail and thank you to the Lady.
Lady of Light and of Love,
Your heart beats with us. Your heartbeat marking our own.

As we bring this song, this love, into our lives.
We thank you for being with us and for shining the light of your love in our lives.
