You will need:
2 green altar candles
1 small red candle
1 raw egg in shell
1 small cauldron
1 altar bell
1 offering plate
1 offering cup
Seasonal altar decor
Place two green candles on your altar at the opposite end of where you will be sitting. They should be several inches apart. Place the cauldron in the center of your altar and place the egg inside your cauldron. Place a small red candle in front of the cauldron. Place the ritual bell on the right side of your altar. On the left side of your altar place the plate and cup for offerings. Traditionally you would place seeds, bulbs, colored ribbons, and colored eggs would be used as offerings. For your offering drink you can use a sweet wine or sparkling grape juice. You may also add additional seasonal decorations to your altar, such as flowers, images or figurines of rabbits, and seeds.
When you are ready to begin, light the green candles from left to right. Ring the altar bell three times then say:
"I call to the goddess and the god to bless this ritual on this sacred day, which marks the return of life to the world."
Ring the bell three more times, light the red candle and say:
"In the names of the god and goddess, I call to the spirit of return and regeneration. Come, partake of the offerings I freely give here upon this altar. As you awaken the sleeping seeds, awaken also the seeds of my own life that are the abilities I possess to accomplish my goals."
Remove the egg from the cauldron, hold it up, and say:
"From the darkness beneath the earth, the life giving vessel has returned. All is rebirth, all is renewal."
Set the egg in a safe place on the altar.
Before presenting the offerings, say:
“God and goddess, I thank you for your presence in my life, and for the return of life for the coming seasons. Please accept this offering as a token of my love.”
Place your hands, palms up, on each side of the plate as a welcome. Take the egg to your garden and crake it open on the ground. Leave it undisturbed for 24 hours then go back and mix it into the soil. (If you don’t have a garden you can use a pot of soil.)
•The egg represents birth
•The cauldron represents the womb of the goddess.
•The green candles are a symbol of life renewed.
Anonymous asked: Sorry if this is a stupid question but what you do, is it like satanic or anything? Like if I get into it will that welcome unwanted or evil spirits? You're blog is extremely interesting and I'm tempted to try some out myself but I'm just concerned is all.
I do not worship the devil or anything like the devil. Everything I practice comes from love, happiness, and healing. I do not wish harm on anyone. Witchcraft is a broad practice. Each person practices it a little bit differently, so I can not speak for everyone. But I do not believe in the devil and my practices never involve anything harmful or evil. When you get a chance browse through my blog. I post a lot of information that will help you to better understand witchcraft and what it is all about.
