Calling in the Directions and Elements
Written by
APRIL, MOONFOX, BEAR & CATHY
Each sister will walk, when it is her turn, from her direction into the center of the circle, turn, face her direction and invoke Her assigned Element.
MOONFOX - EAST:
As we stand here in the east, feel the velvety touch of the butterflies' wings. The air is pushed as the fairies play. The winds of communication are stirred as the eagle soars above. This is the place of new beginnings, where the sun rises to create the dawn and clarity can be seen. As the maiden, we feel the joy of fresh starts, when the day before has been left behind and a new day dawns with possibilities. As the mother, we feel the peace that comes from knowing that the channels of communication are open and flowing freely. As the crone, we feel the strength that clarity of purpose brings.
APRIL - SOUTH:
As we stand here in the south, feel the heat of passion, desire and will inflame us. The lioness is here in protection of her pride. In this place, the fires burn that call us to act and move and make magick happen! As the maiden, we feel the heat of the sunburn upon our face. As the Mother, we feel desire as it gives rise to action! As the Crone, we feel the warmth of the fires as they continue to burn and move us along the path.
BEAR - WEST:
As we stand here in the west, watery realm of dolphins, mermaids and fish, land of emotions and the setting sun, listen to the roll and crash of the waves as they break against the shore Feel your toes sink into warm soft sand as you gaze at the glorious rays of the sun as she stirs over the ocean. Taste the tangy salt air that caresses your cheek. As the maiden, we feel the new promise of a dew kissed garden. As the Mother, we feel the powerful creativity the watery womb. As the Crone, we bask in the knowledge that with even the hardest rain comes new growth and rainbows.
CATHY - NORTH:
As we stand here in the north, we are filled with spirit of tree and stone. We hear the woods-nymph laughter as she dances in the moonlight on the forest floor. We ravish the ripened apple of time eternal and mysteries of magick. As the maiden we feel the excitement of your harvest adding color and texture to our path. As the mother we feel secure in the sanctuary and blessings of your spiral. As the Crone, we feel the ancestors stirring in our memories and wisdom.
MOONFOX, APRIL, BEAR & CATHY
Elements of the East, South, West & North, we as the Maiden, Mother and Crone invoke your presence in our sacred circle. Protect all our sisters in circle and those who cannot be with us this day. Heal our wounds that hold us back from our potential. Support us with your loving guidance and aid us this day in working our magickal rites.
The elements of the Four Directions are present and in aid to us all! So Mote it be.

MAEVE - Trinity of the Priestess
In a realm beyond all understanding, in a time that was not a time, in a place that was not a place, there was Goddess. From the ceaseless void that one can only imagine to the heartbeat that was primal source, Goddess existed a Trinity of herself. In a continuous dance of ecstasy Maiden Energy spiraled out and back again to nurturing Mother Source, Crone Darkness storing the imprints over and over of the dance of ever-expanding Goddess.
For infinite measure She danced of herself, spiraling in and out, expanding and growing as cosmic source and light burst forth as Suns, Moons and Planets. Universe after universe expanded out as Maiden Energy only to return to Mother Source, swirling around Her and adding to the wisdom of existence of Crone Darkness.
On and on the dance continued as the Trinity created and recreated. The sun, moon and stars gave warmth, land and sea divided and air wrap around in atmosphere, all in reflection of Goddess and what would become Her life sustaining Elements.
Life as we know it was in it's earliest creation. As above, so below - as within, so without, daughter cells birth daughter cells and life was mirrored in reflection of Goddess. Mother Source expanded and diverse vegetation grew to nurture and aid Maiden Energy's unstoppable growth. Crone Darkness manifested rhythm and seasons of birth, death and renewal that held strong the Trinity of the Goddess and its Spiral of eternal existence.
Abundant, free and ever changing, Maiden Energy gave birth to consorts. Where there was once only reflection of the Trinity, now was a mirrored double that held the seeds of life but not the life bearing womb of Mother source. Farther and farther Maiden Energy stretched and intent and awareness came to be.
With Her consort, Maiden Energy gave birth to Nature as feathers, furs and skins of the many colors reflected in Her Energy. Woman and man emerged with knowledge and language and the dance would be forever changed. The threads of Mother Source ever nurturing became shadows and the wisdom of Crone Darkness receded into the helix and DNA as creation began to dance in it's own self awareness.
For many Goddess stayed alive in their worship and they embraced the teachings of the Trinity. They lived and loved filled with Maiden Energy and celebrated in Mother Source of abundance. In times of great strife they sought sanctuary in Crone Darkness, relinquishing their loved ones and loss to Her mysteries. Through their faith they endured immeasurable times of suppression at the hands of change that sought to rid the Earth of Goddess. Maiden Energy, Mother Source and Crone Darkness were the saving grace to those who would hold tight to the teachings.
For others pain and sorrow were born as the light of others replaced the light of their Trinity. The blessed life of the daughters would endure immeasurable times of suppression at the hands of change that sought to rid the Earth of Goddess. They begin to believe the Trinity did not exist within our without. Self-doubt and self worth replace the empowerment of the Trinity of Self as the teachings were silenced.
Now here we are in a time that is measured in age of self, in a place that is our awareness and in a realm that is our lifetime. Here at Dragonfest my sisters, the history of Goddess is deeply marked upon our memories, our actions and our reactions. Joy in Goddess we share as well as the toll of the ages of those past and those present who are still suppressed or lost. As women we all face the same challenges to walk true in our path and as women we gather for strength, answers and renewal of faith. .
It is not luck or coincidence we are here in a circle of diverse women, we are here tonight to remember the Trinity of the Goddess and the Trinity of Self. It is our birthright, it is our truth and it is our responsibility. As women and sisters let us once again call forth the Old Ways, let us remember the mysteries and myths of Goddess and call forth the teachings of the Trinity.
Maiden Energy is not only our empowerment to choose our own destiny; it is the future of Maidens who follow our footsteps. It is we who set in motion change that empowers them.
Mother Source nurtures us and we must nurture ourselves that Goddess may live through us. It is we who set in motion change that allow all women to give importance to selves and the women who will follow in our footsteps.
Crone Darkness is our blood rite and knowledge we are the true reflection of the Trinity of the Goddess. To bleed the blood of creation or to hold the blood within, it is we who set in motion the Spiral of the Trinity over and over again for the daughters who will follow in our footsteps.
We are Maidens, Mothers and Crones divided by age united in Trinity. Let us celebrate the Spirit of Women Past, Present and Future. Let us shine our light for all the women not given this choice.
