The Star Emerald (LRP equivalent)

(An experimental ritual of banishing and defense, drawing inspiration from the Star Ruby and the Lesser banishing ritual of the Pentagram.)

Facing the East

(tracing a circle above the head, say)

Above in Nuits splendour – a star upon a crown

(pointing to the feet, say)

Beneath two firm feet on Irelands Sacred Ground

(Touching the Heart)

With a Sun bright burning, aflame within my core

(Touch the right shoulder, the left shoulder, then clasping hands in front of the breast, saying)

With majesty and might, let me become an Engine of War!

 

(Advance to the East, building up the image of a blazing Emerald pentagram upon the forhead, before projecting the pentagram to the East in the Sign of the Enterer,  and roaring LUGH! givng  the sign of silence)

(Turning to the left, pace the perimeter of the circle to the North, before projecting the pentagram to the North calling MORRIGAN!)

(Travelling to the West , projecting the Pentagram and crying DAGDA!)

(To the South, calling, BRIDGET!)

(Return to the centre, standing with arms outstreched to the sides at shoulder height and recite.)

 

Before me Semias, bright guardian of the Light, shine forth the Eastern powers – perception and Foresight

 

Behind me Uiscias, who keep the waters free, pour forth the Western powers , pure tides that flow in me

On my right hand Esras, Guardian of the Way – blaze forth the Southern powers – unconquered will through night and day

On my left hand Morfessa, Hidden Wisdoms greatest guide – grow forth the Northern powers – Dark Earth with life inside

( Assume the form of a Star, ie. arms stretched out to the sides at shoulder height, legs just beyond shoulder width apart.)

About me bright the Emerald Star – within the sacred sphere

Upon these powers by whom I swear

Let courage conquer fear!

 

(Repeating the gextures from the beginning.)

Above in Nuits splendour – a star upon a crown

Beneath tow firm feet on Irelands Sacred Ground

With a Sun bright Burning Aflame within my core

With majesty and might, l am become an Engine of War!
