Willow's Rune ||>
I was thinking even as I saw this episode that this
wasn't a proper spell. But as I was reading the poem version of
"The Wiccan Rede," I finally came up with what I could use this
as. The poem has a line: "Deosil go by waxing moon, chanting out
the Witches' Rune." So I decided to use this and write one, only
Buffy style - of course! These are usually used for empowerment,
whether or not it's for a spell or your well-being, and tend to
be pretty cool.
- Circle of red candles (tea candles are
ok, but as a BtVS purist, it should be bigger.)
- Incense censer with incense
- A bowl with either a pentacle in it,
or one drawn/painted in it.
- Chalice/goblet with wine/juice or holy
water in it (holy water recommended)
- Cleansed and consecrated sand
Ok, this is where it gets tricky because I'm not
going to do exactly the movements Willow does, but I try for close.
Also, Since in Runes Quarter calls are pretty much built in, I'm
not doing one.
Sit in the center of circle of candles (and watch
so you don't catch anything on fire!) Drop sand in bowl and say:
Harken all ye elements, I summon thee now.
Then light the incense and inhale, relaxing and
getting deeper in that alpha state. Say when ready:
Control the outside, control
Land and sea, fire and wind.
Out of my passions, a web
From this eve forth, my
will be done.
So mote it be.
Pour the goblet into the bowl signifying the mixture
of earth/water, fire/air to aid you. Then continue with whatever
working you were attempting, or just ground, dismiss and close
the circle (by blowing out the candles) if the object was to give
yourself some oomph. That's what this is all about after all.
