Releasing The Deities

After the cakes and wine blessing it is time to thank the Lord and Lady for their presence and to release them (should they wish to go). Although they may well stick around. Politeness counts and the best way is to let them know you are almost done with the ritual and give them the choice of leaving. To complete this part of the ritual, stand in the center of the circle and open your arms wide. Start by thanking and releasing the Lady saying:

O Goddess of Moon, Goddess of Star
Ruler of planets both near and far.
Ruler of earth and all that’s within,
Who sets the time for life to begin.
Bringer of happiness, bringer of mirth,
Giver of value, giver of worth.
We thank you for your presence here
and hold you in our hearts so dear.
With our love you now, you may go
Or stay if you should deem it so.

Having thanked and released the Lady, thank and release the Lord.

O Lord of all places wild and free
Sower of seed that we might be.
he who is Sun in the heavens above,
Giver of light, giver of love.
Bringer of health and prosperity,
Who changes all as it should be.
We thank you for your presence here
and hold you in our hearts so dear.
With our love you now, you may go
Or stay if you should deem it so.

You have now released the deities.
