It is Full Moon.What Ritual would be Best for This?


Rituals to celestial bodies must be through poetry or the telescope, through music (as in Dvorak’s Rusalka or astronomy.

Take some poems on the Moon, from Shelley or Longfellow and read it Or Ben Jonson’s poem:

Queen and huntress, chaste and fair,

Now the sun is laid to sleep,

Seated in thy silver chair

State in wonted manner keep:

Hesperus entreats thy light,

Goddess excellently bright.

Earth, let not thy envious shade

Dare itself to interpose;

Cynthia’s shining orb was made

Heaven to clear when day did close:

Bless us then with wished sight,

Goddess excellently bright.

Lay thy bow of pearl apart

And thy crystal-shining quiver;

Give unto the flying hart

Space to breathe, how short soever:

Thou that mak’st a day of night,

Goddess excellently bright.
