Rebirth Through Darkness: Dark Moon Ritual of
Create sacred space and cast circle using the Sibylline Circle Casting and Consecration of the Elements.
Add a little incense to keep the censor smoking.
Conjure the mirror, bowl of water, or cauldron to be a window between the Worlds using your favorite method or by simply intending that it will be the function of this tool and passing it through the incense smoke.
Cleanse, bless, and consecrate the purple candle to Hecate and spiritual wisdom.
Light the candle and hold it aloft and invoke Hecate:
Once you feel the presence of the Dark Goddess, set the candle on the altar behind the scrying tool and sit cross legged on the floor.
Cover yourself from head to toe in the cloth or blanket, ensuring that as little light as possible can come through. Allow yourself to descend into your painful emotions, situations, thoughts, and anything else that has been draining, depleting, and limiting you.
Resist and question nothing. Feel the Goddess guiding you into this Darkness, succumbing to your experiences now. Cry, shake, moan, and take yourself to those places within that you most fear. Hecate is with you, and will protect you, but the experience will still be intense. When you feel as though you have completely descended into the Darkness and all of your pain and fear have surfaced, say:
Slowly remove the blanket or cloth, come onto your knees, and gaze within the scrying tool; the dark mirror of the moon. Allow images, feelings, words, and symbols to arise from the depths of the tool, and remain open to the guidance of Hecate.
When you feel as though you have received the guidance you need and the symbol of power, come to standing and again hold the candle aloft.
Place the candle back on the altar and extinguish it. Thank the Quarters and open the circle. If you used a mirror as your scrying tool, wrap it in black silk and put it away from curious eyes or the light of the sun. If you used a bowl of water or a cauldron, empty the contents onto the ground outside and either keep the bowl or cauldron for future scrying, or purify it later so it may be used for something else. Eat hardy bread, drink lots of water, and write in your Book of Shadows about the ritual and what was experienced. Be sure to record your guidance from Hecate, and the symbol of power. Give yourself time to recover, and readjust.
