Druid Moon: Aedrinios

Opening
[Light the candle and add silver to the cup of water.]
Take a breath and put aside any tensions from the mundane world. Know this space is made sacred because we gather here in ritual.

Earth Mother
Earth Mother
Nearest and dearest to us
May we remember your gifts
And seek to bless you in return.
Earth Mother, join us and be warmed by this good fire.
[Offering.]

Gatekeeper
We call to Cernunnos, to aid us in this ritual.
Cernunnos, Godden of liminality,
Join us and be warmed by this good fire.
[Offering.]
Aid us and help send our offerings to the otherworld.

Opening the Ways
As we move into ritual space and ritual time,
Know that this world reflects the otherworld.
So may this fire become the cosmic fire
May this water become the cosmic well
May this tree become the world tree.
And may our offerings be transformed to spirit.

Kindred Invocations
Ancestors who came before,
Join us and be warmed by this good fire.
[Offering.]

Nature Spirits, with whom we share this world,
Join us and be warmed by this good fire.
[Offering.]

Shining Ones, wise and mighty,
Join us and be warmed by this good fire.
[Offering.]

Key Offerings
We call now to the Beings of the Occasion, those Patrons of our rite whom we worship at the heart of ritual. 

Cissonius Invocation
Cissonius,
Chief of the Gods,
Carriage Driver promoting trade and prosperity,
Guarder and Guide who travels the ways.
Visucius of the ravens of knowledge.
God of the foreigners, wide-traveled, well-cultured.
We hail you, God of grain, the foundation of commerce.
Hail Cissonius!
[Offering.]

Rosmerta Invocation
Rosmerta,
Goddess of Foresight,
You who prepare well.
Goddess of Abundance,
You who give happy outcomes.
Great Provider,
Goddess of the Cornucopia of Plenty
You give good fortune and well-being.
Most Providential, your generosity knows no limits.
Hail Rosmerta!
[Offering.]

Omen
Let us now take an omen to receive blessings from our Patrons, which will inform our working.
[Take omen.]

Working
Having received these blessings, may these Patrons now aid us in our working. 

[Choose an item that you want to bless with abundance. You could also draw out or meditate on an outcome that you would bless with abundance or good fortune.]

Deities who know much and prepare well.
Deities who give good blessings of prosperity.
Cissonius and Rosmerta, aid me in this blessing.

May this [item/outcome] have your blessing. May abundance shine through all obstacles that may prevent prosperity for [item/outcome]. May your bounty sustain this [item/outcome] with the blessing of abundance. So be it!

Thanking the Kindreds
To the Patrons of this rite, for being with us and receiving our offerings, we thank you.
To the Shining Ones, the Nature Spirits, and the Ancestors – Kindreds all – for being with us and receiving our offerings, we thank you.
Earth Mother, for your many blessings, we thank you.

Closing the Ways
We call once more to Cernunnos.
Thank you for aiding us in this ritual.
May the cosmic fire be merely this candle.
May the cosmic well return to this water.
And may the world tree recede into this tree.

Closing
This rite is ended. May we go in peace and fellowship.
