Feast Of Artemis Image
COLORS: Silver, white, and pale green

ELEMENT: Earth

ALTAR: On a white cloth place woodland vines and branches, a silver crescent moon, a bow and arrow, incense of cypress, a chalice of white wine, and the figures of many deer.

OFFERINGS: Stag-shaped cakes of dough, honey, and sesame called "elaphoi", placed on the altar. Make a promise and keep your word. Give something to women in need.

DAILY MEAL: Venison is best, or else rabbit or quail.

INVOCATION TO ARTEMIS:


Hail, Lady of the deer hunt!

You who are both hunter and hunted,

You who wield the bow


And bring the prey to their knees,

You who are the doe


Who flees and eludes the pursuers,

Come to us and bless our hunt!

We too seek in the darkness,

We too flee through the darkness,

We too are both predator and prey.

Virgin of the crescent moon,

Implacable one with silver gaze


Who is called She Who Slays,

Fearless huntress, skilled tracker,

Shy deer who runs from our


Groping hands and clumsy feet,

Ray of moonlight that shows


Secrets beneath the forest leaves

That are glimpsed once and then


Never seen again in our lifetimes,

Archer with the fierce pack


Who hounds us through our weaknesses

And will not let us compromise,

Remind us that to shun compromise is to remain true

To something that we must keep alive or lose.

Chant:


New moon shining,

Artemis, Artemis

(Pass around the chalice and pour out the rest as libation. Pass around the elaphoi and put the rest out for the woodland creatures as an offering.)

AGLAIA (pronounced ah-GLAY-ah) is the Greek Goddess of gracefulness and charm, one of the three Kharites or Graces. She and her sisters, Euphrosyne and Thalia, are daughters of Zeus and the Okeanid Eurynome. Aglaia, who is the youngest of the sisters, rules specifically over beauty. The Kharites were attendants of Aphrodite, Goddess of beauty and passion. Aglaia's name means "splendor" or "shining one," and is also seen as AGLAEA.
