The window is thrown open, allowing the silvery moon to dance upon the water offering in the chalice. The altar is adorned with candles, flowers, and colorful lights like candies. Yule approaches, and Long Nights Moon is a time to put the darkness behind us and prepare for the rebirth of light. The magician contemplates this, sliding into a meditative state, then evokes the moon:
Shining in the velvet night
Fill this place with silver light.
Come, O Hastener, to this place
Weave a web of moonglow lace
Swirl above this Circle case.
Bless this place, O Whirling One
Line it with a silver run
Make it strong, not undone.
The Circle spreads through space so vast
And the shining rings are now cast
Joining Present, Future, Past.
