The Standing Stones Baal, of Shadows

Send projective energy into the tool, cleansing it of all negativity and past associations. Now pick it up and sprinkle with salt, pass it through the incense smoke, through the candle flame, and sprinkle with water, calling upon the spirits of the stones to consecrate it. Then hold the tool to the sky, saying: I charge you by the Old Ones: by the omnipotent Goddess and God: by the virtues of the sun, moon, and stars: by the powers of the earth, air, fire, and water, that I shall obtain all that I desire through you. Charge this by your power, Old Ones!"

The tool should immediately be put to use to strengthen and bind the consecration. For example, the athame can be used to consecrate another tool; a wand to invoke the Goddess; the pentacle to act as a resting place for a tool during its consecration.

The Full Moon Rite Perform this at night, in view of the moon, if possible. It is appropriate for crescents, white flowers, silver,and other lunar symbols to be present on the altar for this ritual. The quartz crystal sphere can be placed on the altar as well. Or, if you prefer, use the cauldron (or a small white or silver bowl) filled with water. Place a piece of silver into the water. Arrange the altar, light the candles and censer, and cast the circle of stones. Stand before the altar and invoke the Goddess and God, with the Blessing Chant and/or any other invocations (see "Prayers, Chants, and Invocations" in this Book of Shadows). Now gaze at the moon, if possible. Feel its energies sinking into your body. Feel its cool Goddess energy wash you with power and love.

* The words used in this consecration rite are based on one included in The Key of Solomon, and are similar to those used in many Wiccan traditions.
