Wiccan Pentagram Ritual
Wiccan Cross

Face East. Touch forehead. Say IO EVOE HERTHA ('Blessed be Hertha,' or other Name by
which you worship the Goddess as Creatrix)

Touch solar plexus or genitals. Say IO EVOE CERNUNNOS ('Blessed be Cernunnos,' or
other name by which you worship the Horned God as the Earth)

Touch right shoulder. Say EKO EKO AZARAK ('Hail, hail force of fire')

Touch left shoulder. Say EKO EKO AMELAK ('Hail, hail to the glory') Extend arms in form
of a cross.

Say IO EVOE ('Blessed be.')

Clasp hands upon breast and say 'So mote it be.'

CIRCLE OF PROTECTION
Trace pentagram in East. Say HERNE. Trace circle of protection until facing South.
Trace pentagram in South. Say CERNUNNOS. Trace circle of protection until facing West.
Trace pentagram in West. Say ARADIA. Trace circle of protection until facing North.
Trace pentagram in North. Say HABONDIA. Finish tracing circle, closing it in the East.

INVOCATION OF THE GREAT GODS
Return to center of circle and face East. Extend arms in form of a cross. Chant:

Before me HERNE The Huntsman
Behind me ARADIA The Maiden
On my right hand CERNUNNOS, the Horned God
On my left hand HABONDIA, the Great Mother
About me flame the centigrams
And above me shines the light of the Goddess.

Repeat the Wiccan Cross.

Rather than performing this in the rather measured cadences of Cabalistic Ritual, a form of
dancing and chanting more pleasing to the God-forms of Wicca might profitably be devised.
