Consecration of Ritual Tools

Meet on the night of a new moon in order to consecrate new tools that Coven members have acquired.

Cast the Circle, and upon the altar place a bowl of sea salt and water. Next to it, burn consecration incense.

Gather in front of the altar, and one by one raise each item to the sky in both hands.

Say: In all time and all space I consecrate this (name of item) in the name of the God – Youth, Father, and WiseOne.

Then, one by one, thrust each item into the earth with both hands.

Say: In all time and all space I consecrate this (name of item) in the name of the Goddess – Maiden, Mother, and Crone.

Next, each Witch curtsies or bows in front of the altar, and passes the item they were holding through the incense.

Say: By Air and by Fire I consecrate this (name of item) in the Name of the God and the Goddess.

Then the item is sprinkled with salted water.

Say: By Water and by Earth I consecrate this (name of item) in the Name of the God and the Goddess.

Finally, the consecrated tool should be rested on the Altar.

Say: May the Bearer of this (name of item) always do Your Will, My Lord and My Lady. As I will, So Mote It Be.

Serve cakes and ale with the traditional blessings, and take the Circle down, as the ritual is complete.
