Welcome to another 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! The link to the event page is HERE.

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 HERE.

The official “start” time for this online-only ritual is 11 a.m. Central time on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, but any time the night prior (Friday for Love), that day or night, and the next day (Sunday for Success), will be o.k. and will catch the current – think of it like a wave. The only supplies needed are a pink candle and you! If you would like to have a rattle, that would be great too. If you don’t have a rattle, you can place dried beans in a little bottle to create a makeshift rattle.

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 Central time zone. However, rituals also work great in waves of energy, so if you wanted to do the ritual at 11 a.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 11 a.m. Central time – as all times are one time and all places are one place.

We will be working with Love in its different facets – love of ourselves, love for others and unconditional love for all. Valentine’s Day has an archetype and much thought built up around it related to Love of course, and 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. You might wish to have a rattle as mentioned. Any other altar tools or set up are up to you.

If you are curious about how some of our online rituals went and how it works, you may wish to check out the links to the prior event pages on this event’s Facebook page. That way you can see all the posts and how it worked, which 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. 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 space filled with love. A world where all is one, all is safe and all is possible.
So mote it be.

Call to the Lady/Goddess:

Hail to the Lady,
Lady of Love and of Life,
You who dwell within as you also dwell without
Love of the ages, passion in your heart
Divine mother embracing all of life
Gifting us with the blessings of love
The love of all. The love of others. The love of ourselves.
Divine beauty and grace, guiding the divine in us to the oneness
To the love that embraces all humanity
Our brothers and sisters, and all in the universe.
Starting with ourselves and radiating outward in the world.
Wrap us in your mantle of love this day
Help us to find the love within ourselves.
And to share that love and light with others.
We call to you, Lady, be with us, shine your light of love in our lives.
Today and always.
Hail and welcome!

Call to the Lord/God:

Hail to the Lord,
Lord of Light and of all living things,
You who dwell within as you also dwell without
Passion of the ages, the Sun burning brightly in your heart
Guardian of the living world,
Gifting us with the blessings of light and life
The light that shines from the heavens
The light that emanates from the starry depths
And the light that burns as if the Sun itself was radiating from our own hearts
Help us to listen to our hearts,
To embrace the light within
To live our life in each moment in the light of that inner Sun.
We call to you, Lord, be with us, shine your light of love in our lives.
Today and always.
Hail and welcome!

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 within each of us.
The Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in our hearts
The Light and Love of the universe burning as one.

We embrace the divine within us, within our hearts.
We feel the pulse of the Sun’s light within,
Growing and radiating its light outward, into the world
Into our lives, now and in the future.

We are one in the power of Love and Light, of Life itself.
On this Valentine’s Day, we follow the growing light,
We feel the fulfillment of Love within ourselves.
We see and know the potential of Love all around us

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 Light, filled with Love
The blessings of this day embraces us, warming us in its love.

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.

Begin to rattle (or drum, etc.) Feel the beat of life and all creation with each sound of the rattle. Feel its connection to the rhythm of all things around you, and in the universe. Continue to rattle. As you rattle, you may find a song wants to come out. If it does, let it. It doesn’t matter what you think it will sound like. Let your voice out. Embrace your voice as light and love. You are life. You are love. You are creating. Creating and sharing love through your act of rattling.

Stop rattling when you feel it is complete. Listen to your heart within.

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, with Yourself. As the light from the candle glows, the light grows on this Valentine’s Day, and in this time past Imbolc, as we approach the Spring Equinox. Feel all the Love from the Lady and Lord grow in 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.

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
Lord of Light and of all living things,
You who dwell within as you also dwell without
Passion of the ages, the Sun burning brightly in your heart
Guardian of the living world,
Thank you for gifting us with the blessings of light and life
And for helping us to listen to our hearts,
To embrace the light within
To live our life in each moment in the light of that inner Sun.
We thank you, Lord, for being with us, shining your light of love in our lives.
Today and always.
Hail and farewell!
