Chalice Blessing

July 26, 2011

Be it known that a man is not greater than a woman.
Nor yet is a woman greater than a man.
For what one lacks
The other can provide
As the athame is to the male
So is the cup to the female.
And when conjoined together, they become one in truth,
for there is no greater magick in all the world than that of love.

– neo-pagan blessing with alternate lines recited by a priest and priestess.
Published in the Internet Book of Shadows.

Summer Solstice Blessing

June 21, 2011

As the sun spirals its longest dance,
Cleanse us.
As nature shows bounty and fertility,
Bless us.
Let all things live with loving intent
and to fulfill their truest destiny.
