The Unveiling: Part ONE: The Revealing!

June 1st - New Moon - Solar Eclipse - The Reveal --

Herbs: Dragon's Blood, Bittersweet, Benzoin, Peppermint, Rosemary.

Stones: Snowflake Obsidian, Blue Tiger's Eye, Bloodstone, Lapis Lazuli.

Images: Owl, Skull

Color: Green.

Deities: Athena, Clotho

Time: 10:03 pm GMT (-5 hr. for EST)

I know not everyone will have access to all the herb
s requested but as long as you have ros
emary and snowflake obsidian you'll be good to go. If you don't have any of the tools, remember, the intent is the most important, and don't worry about it. But if you can use the same symbols, it would be most helpful.

You can also easily adjust this ritual to a more hermetic approach, with the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram or GRP. Or you can simply lay back in a quiet place and do the visualization exercise i recommended and ignore ritual all together. anything and everything will help. This ritual is meant to reveal the false veil and barriers to the world and to be performed during the solar eclipse. The solar eclipse will only be visible from more northern parts of the world on June first of 2011, but it will create energy fluctuation all over, and we can take that to good use, I should imagine. The path of the partial solar eclipse begins at sunrise in Siberia and northern China at 19:25:18 Universal Time (UT). The eclipse’s path will travel northeast and end at 23:06:56 UT, just north of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean. I would suggest to do the ritual at this time, though, if it'simpossible, any time as close as you can should help.I do think it would be helpful to invoke the Fate: Clotho for this particular ritual. This first step can correspond with Air, for revealing the truth of a matter. As the second, fire, can be the destructive qualities, with water unraveling the thread and earth to seal it. The spider is used in the second step and the skull and the scarab for the third. for the first step, many symbols can be used, perhaps the triangle with the eye could be appropriate. if you
don't have any figurings or statues with these symbols, you can draw them, or even print them out on a piece of paper. I would suggest to get a knife to use, a dagger or athame of some kind. I usually also incorporate a pentacle, salt, a chalice and incense in every ritual i do, but this all depends on your magical tradition, of course. but remember, tools are not this instance, a couple similar symbols would link us all in our power, but tools are only a focus p
oint...the intent and your mind is the most important. i realize some of you may be inexperienced magical practitioner...just don't let that discourage you...just try your hardest and focus as hard as you can, and something good will come of it. the more doubt, the less you will achieve. believe in yourself and keep focused. Also, when chanting something, it is important to sound sure of yourself. if you are musically inclined, you can sometimes turn it into a sort of song, but what is important, is to say it strongly, and think of what you mean when you say it.

Stand facing in the east, ra
ise your arms in the air and call out

"I consecrate this circle of power to the ancient ones. Here may they manifest and bless thier child
. "

Move to your altar, facing the e
"This is a time that is not a time. In a place that is not a place. On a day that is not a day. I stand between the worlds, before the veil of mysteries. May the ancient ones help and p
rotect me on my magickal journey. "

You can draw the circle in any way you wish. I prefer to mark it out in my mind by circling the circle with the dagger and walk around *CLOCKWISE* and visualize a blue tip of light etching it out, as well as taking holy salt water
and sprinkling it around, also clockwise, and as well with the incense...this not only purifies the area, but molds out the circle. once the circle is made, do not leave it until you open it back up at the end. (there is also the option, where you can consecrate your tools, but i was trying to make this more simple for those who aren't as experienced. instead of a long drawn out process, you may cleanse them with water and ask your deities or the earth to cleanse and bless them.)

~Invocation of the Elements~
(i would also encourage you to use th
e Invocation of the 12 elements, instead if you prefer)

"By Air which fills our lungs
with breath
and lifes the bird in flight
by fire which flames within our soul
and floods our mind with light
by water flowing in our bloodfrom ocean's silver brightby earth of which our flesh is formed
from which we hold the sight

earth; my bodywater; my blood
air; my breath and
fire; my spirit

above, by the heavenly realm
and all the Spirits on high
below- by the Underworld
and all the Sidhe below

As above, so below. let the reflection remain.
As above, so below, let us remain free"

Face the East and rise"This circle is bound with power all around. Between the worlds, I stand with protection at hand. "

"Spirit of the great white light
Burn away our psychic night
let us feel your loving care
give us joy and love to sha
Make us of your willing tool
Let fulfillment be our rule
That our growth may be a light
saving others from the night

I would take a piece of paper or a symbol of an eye inside a triangle, and owl, a skull or even carve it into a candle,
or many candles. Most rituals i prefer to have very little light, to create the aura of mystery. for this, the more
light the better. If you can have this ritual outside and with a bon fire, even better still.

during this time i would take a few momemts to say a prayer or chant to Clotho, and invoke her power.

"Hail the Hun
As you draw your silver bow,
il Artemis and Io,
Oh Horned waxing luminous present glow
Nu and numinous maiden crescent shewn

Hail Clotho,
Spinner of life's threadDrawn forth from Nix Night
Turning Fate's first strands
With nimble hands
Twining twixt the dark and bright"

(Visualize this before or during the chants, whichever is preferable to you. But, remember, the words don't mean anything until you mean them. Try and build up the tension, raising your voice in strength or in notes until it comes crashing at the end.)

Now you can light the incense or herbs you have selected, and maybe hold the snowflake obsidian in hand. Light candles or a fire. Focus for a few moments on the images of the Owl and the Skull.
Now concentrate on the false veil in the sky, you can
stare into the sky or just visualize the barrier, that which is a web over and through the earth, the gray abyss over the sky, or the millions of broken pinwheels spinning back and forth.

Now, let the light in your body grow, glowing in the night, until it becomes a beacon, standing strong and alone. Eventually you can aim it and shine it towards what has been hidden, t
hrough the veil and to the other side. this is most important, to reveal what has been done to the world, to take the Veil off people's eyes and make them aware o
f create a light so people
understand what is happening.
"We are the flow and we are the ebb;
we reveal the weav
ers of the web!
we see the weavers;what become of the web?
where are the spiders who master the thread?
to separate the living and the dead
the truth is the flow and we reveal the ebb

the truth is upon us, hear the call!

what is hidden is revealed to all
tear down the cobwebs
tear down the walls(pause)
Now we are the flow and we are the ebb
we are the weavers of the web
we are the weavers we are the web
we are teh spiders we are teh thread
we are teh chosen back from teh dead
we are teh chosen back from the dead
we are teh flow, and we are teh ebb!

As the serpent swallows the Sun
Truth revealed the hidden undone
A false veil now covers Athena's face
the knowledge of Truth descend on Man's race
Bubo, the message deliver wide
to One and All on earth they reside!"

Now relax and release the energy. If you have lit candles or a bonfire, let it burn out on it's own.

Now, i would not be surprised if something tries to attack us for this. which is why the rest of the ritual i would advise you to sit quietly and concentrate on strengthening your wards and cloaks around you. An additional protection ritual might be necessary, especially, especially if you are newly awakened.

~Dismisal of the Elements~

(put out each candle in turn while saying this)

"Depart oh powers of (earth/air/fire/water),my thanks and blessings. "

Take athame and cut hole in your circle. and then say:

"The circle is open but ever remains a circle. Around and through me always flows it’s magical power.

I give thanks to all the beings of the visible and the invisible that have joined with me/us on this night. By the powers of the ancient Gods, I bind all power within this circle, into this spell. So mote it be"
