Invocation to Selene
Lady of the Full Moon
White Lady whose rays shine on us
Lighting our path through the darkness
Round as a full belly
Pregnant with possibilities,
White as mother's milk
And snow on high mountaintops,
Moon mother who sings to us
Lullabies of imagination,
Cascade through our dreams,
Sail us through the ebb and flow
Of our heart's tides,
And light our spirits
With your serene love.
Chant: Luna Lucina Lumen Lumen
(The cakes are passed around, saying, "Eat of the Mother's sweetness." Then the pitcher of milk
is passed around, saying, "Drink of the Mother's love." Then the chalice of wine is passed
around, saying, "Drink of the Mother's dreams." Then the glass of liqueur is passed around,
saying, "Drink of the Mother's song." Then the remainder are poured out as libations and the
silver bell is rung six times.)
