n, Thyme, Vervain, Rosemary.

As before not everyone will have access to everything but Rosemary and some tourmulated quartz are the basics.
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. A
nything and everything will help.
This ritual is meant to build up power and literally unravel the threads of the false veil from what you already did two weeks ago, but more than cut, but to eliminate them all together. I know some of the visualizations we did last time pulled do
wn the threads a little after cutting them, but this time we will put more power into it, and bring "death" of
the New Moon into the existance of the veil. As we u
nravel, it will deminish and eventually disapear entirely.
The solar eclipse will only be visible in mostly non inhabitable places of the world, but it should create energy fluctuation all over, and we can take that to good use, I should imagine.
If you don't have any figurings or statues with these symbols, you ca
n 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. If none are available
, or if you prefer, you can use your finger to channel the power instead of a knife. 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 i
mportant...in this instance, a couple similar symbols would link us all in our power, bu
t tools are only a focus point...the intent and your mind and your will is the most important. i realize some of you may be inexperienced magical practitioners...just don't let that discourage you...just try your hardest and focus as hard as you can, and s
omething 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 sureof 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.
This ritual can be performed alone or as a group. One person should be in charge of doing most of the ritual, but any chanting, particularly with the longer verses, can be chanted together. The the elemental calling, the elements should be evenly divided between the participants, and in a way so the elements the individuals feel closest to are selected appropriately.
Stand facing in the east, raise 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 east
"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 protect 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. Some people like to actually draw the circle, with sand or ashes. As well as taking holy salt water and sprinkling it around, also clockwise, and a
s 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 encourage you to use the Invocation of the 12 elements, instead, if you prefer. If you are comfortable with the twelve elements, a more traditional four elemental chant can be used instead)
You can light a can
dle for each, or whatever you like.

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

Burn away our psychic night

Make us of your willing tool
Let fulfillment be our rule

I would take a piece of paper or a symbol of an spider, a skull or even carve it into a candle,
or many candles.
During this time i would take a few momemts to say a prayer or chant to Demeter and to Hecate, Spider Crone, and once again give thanks to the Three Fates.
I call Demeter
Bearer of Fair Offspring
nourisher of youth
The Wealthy One
abundant mother of grain
bringer of good harvest
I call Demeter
whose grief and loss
whose despair and rage
bring famine and ruin
in their wake
I call Demeter
seeker of justice
who will not be
until the lost is found again
the beloved returned
restored to wholeness
Turn to us Lady
Give us good harvest
Preserve us through the dark time
Come to us Lady
Come in to your circle
Be here with us now.
Hail Luna, as you rise, IxChel,
Kia, Lady pale,
Queen of dreams, Cast your spell,
Of triple veil
Ar-iadne, Ar-ianhrod, Ar-achne Moerae,
Of faces three,
Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos
Shining from afar,
Spider of Destiny
In your web of Silver Stars.
Hail, Grandmother Spider,
Crone and crow,
Help us face, an
Hail Hecate of the Crossroads,
Oh old and ominous presence glowing
Your waning numinous crescent going
to unravel the chains
to diminish our prison
to purify our poisons
to bring our spirits to the Spirit.
(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 stones in hand. Light candles or a fire. Focus for a few moment
s on the images of the spider and the Skull.
Now concentrate on the false veil in the sky, which is already been broken...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, but those patterns are changing rapidly, so be careful. What
would work best, perhaps, is simply to bi-locate or astral project to where you can witness the false veil better. The last rituals should make it much more clear to find.
If you find it will be helpful, you can take an item made from yarn or a similar material, and literally undo it. You can make your own, or take s
omething like a sweater and take a thread and unwind away.
Now visualize yourself pulling down the threads of the false veil, use your will to unravel them. Continue to unravel the thread, and watch it spiral away, creating large holes in the center. Tear it down, with all your energy and power. Put weig
hts on it, to force it to continue to unravel. It is important to breathe slowly and deeply during this, allowing the power to build and build, become a force no veil can defeat. Focus on this for at least several minutes. It is your sheer will power which defeats the false veil. By the end of this day, the veil should be gone, and who ever put it there, should not be able to find it, for the energy will have been recycled and released.
(Chant this while focusing)
"We are the flow and we are the ebb;
we unravel the threads of the web
We are the spiders who pull away the thread
to separate the living and the dead
the truth is the flow and we are the ebb
(pause, bringing the power to the center of yourself)
tear down the cobwebs
tear down the walls
the truth is upon us, hear the call!
destroy the cobwebs
destroy the walls
what is hidden is bestowed to all
we are all one, it will be done!
This world is free! So mote it be!
(pause letting the power rise)
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 the spiders we are the thread
we are the chosen back from the dead
this is our will the thread is dead!
we are the flow, and we are the ebb!
(pause, rising the power to it's peak, so scream it if you can!)
Again the Serpent Swallows the Sun,
Unravel this False Veil,
Threads Now Run!
Now relax and release the energy. If you have lit candles or a bonfire, let it burn out on it's own.
Especially this time, 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. If you are so inclined, any other precautionary steps can be taken, to either hide what you have done, or make sure nothing repairs itself.
~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. We are now free. So mote it be"
