Drawing Down the Moon
"Listen to the words of the Great Mother, who was of old also called Artemis, Astarte, Melusine, Aphrodite, Diana, Brigit, and many more other names…"
Ancient Thessalian witches were believed to control the moon, according to an old tract: "If I command the moon, it will come down; and if I wish to withhold the day, the night will linger over my head; and again, if I wish to embark on the sea, I need no ship, and if I wish to fly through the air, I am free of my weight."
Drawing Down the Moon is one of the most serious and beautiful rituals in neo-Pagan Witchcraft.. During the Drawing Down the Moon, many women connect with the power of the Goddess and therefore with the power within themselves.
During this ritual, a magic circle is drawn to represent the place between worlds where the gods are met. Within the circle, psychic energy is raised, a work that is known as "raising the cone of power." This is accomplished through music, chanting, and dancing that can at times combine the wills of the participants. When the priest or, more often, the priestess senses the cone of power has been raised she can focus and direct it with the mind toward its destination. One such destination, or purpose, is the psychic healing of someone who is sick, or the purpose might be to seek something which is needed by someone.
