Rite of Her Sacred Fires in Adelaide

Every year The Goddess House, together with the Temple of the Dark Moon, include the Rite of Her Sacred Fires in with the May Full Moon Gathering ritual. 
The Rite of Her Sacred Fires is a unique international devotional celebration of the mysteries and magic of the Goddess Hekate.  It was born out of the Hekate Her Sacred Fires anthology project and written by Sorita d’Este who offered it as an act of devotion for all who wished to participate in May 2010.  The first year saw the Rite of Her Sacred Fires translated into numerous languages, with several thousand people from around the world participating by doing the ritual on the Full Moon that month.  To read more about the Rite of Her Sacred Fires, please visit the Covenant of Hekate (where the above information has been sourced from).
If you would like to take part in this international rite, please meet us under the pines in the carpark to the Botanic Park (off Hackney Road) from 7:30pm on Wednesday, 15 May 2014.  We will be moving into the park around 7:40pm to set up, with the rite to commence around 7:50pm.
All participants are asked to bring a red candle (sacred colour to Hekate) which will be lit from the central flame.  Candles can be purchased on the night for $1.00 with all proceeds going to Fauna Rescue - any "loose change" donation to Fauna Rescue is always gratefully appreciated.
If you are not able to join us on the 15th, then copies of the Rite of Her Sacred Fires can be freely downloaded from the Covenant of Hekate web site.  Please respect to requests of the Covenant when doing so.

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
