I’m reading Lucifer Awakening and it talks about opening and closing a ritual. Please advise on some ways that you do this in your temple or at your altar. Thank you for any help or material. I want to be sure I have studied sufficiently and know what I’m doing before I actually begin doing anything. Just studying for now and I have lots of questions.
Hopefully someone that does opening/closing of rituals will chime in, in the meantime I’ll do my best to explain it as I understand it.
Casting a circle of you do it
Calling corners/quarters/watchtowers whichever you call it, if you do it
Invitation/summoning/calling for evocation or invocation (if you’re doing that)
Could be the evocation or invocation alone or in addition to spellwork/rite/ritual
License to depart if you do it
Banishing if you do it
Shutting down circle of you do it
It’s called Banishing and Evoking. These twin rituals form the basis of all others. If these are not learnt there will always be trouble - often sooner rather than later.
I used to work with the Golden Dawn and would open with the Banishing ritual and close with the Rose Cross, I was wondering if there were other suggestions of opening and closing while working this new path with Lucifer. I’m trying to learn and study before I do anything as I do know about troubles it can cause. Thank you.
Mind if I pm you later? Had some questions regarding GD rituals
Of course, if I don’t answer I’ve stepped away for the night and work all day, but I’ll be around soon enough.
