Ancestors Invocation
Oh beloved Ancestors whom have gone before, I/we ask you to give your blessings, and aid on this special night of Bealtaine. Family members of my/our lineage, and spiritual family which guides me/us. I/we bid you a fond welcome.

Statement of purpose;
I have come here on the festive Bealtaine day to give honor and remembrance to the Goddess whom reunited with the God, and thus created this beautiful world in which I live, learn, and love. I also am here on this day to celebrate the rebirth of the earth through this wonderful conception. May the growing births of life throughout the season be plentiful and brilliant, and may I always keep the light from the Divine burning brightly within my soul. I will light these two candles in order to represent the Bealtaine
fires that are lit in the Celtic lands on this day.

Act of power May Queen and May King
(May King) -
He is the Lord of life, and the Sun is my body, and the rays are my passion. The light is his joy, and inspiration. He is reborn in midwinter, and in the season of the ram he will arise, within the spouting seeds, and the growing plants. He now calls to his sister the maiden, Come Play With Me, and he warms her cold earth with rays of heated sunshine that will melt away the ice which has held her down for the winter. With his light he will touch her, and awaken her loving heart. She turns to him with an open heart, and he will come for her, and join with her, and stand by her during the season of life.
(light the candle for the May King)

(May Queen) -
She is the Lady of life, and the Earth is my body. The plants, and animals which live upon her are her children. During the cold winter she lay sleeping, and she protects all the roots, and seeds beneath her blanket of white. she awakes as the Maiden when the groundhog called for her, and then the ice cracked, and the first buds of life appeared. Soon the singing of birds filled the mornings, and with feeling the warmth of the sun she arose. She now hears her brothers voice, and it fills her with great love, She will now join him in the season of life.
(Light the candle for the May Queen)

The God is not greater than the Goddess, Nor is the Goddess greater than the God, They are both equal, and can not be complete without each other
(from the two candles light the center one)

Let the third flame show the reunification of the Goddess with the God, and let its eternal flame shine within me.
So Mote It Be

Offering for Mother Earth & Father Sky
