Hosted by Mystical Dragon
An Open Circle is a ritual open to all comers where a circle is cast, creating a sacred and safe place to work, followed by the four Elements and God/Goddess being invited to join us. At Mystical Dragon we celebrate every second Sabbat and these Sabbats honour each of the seasons (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring). Each circle has a different focus tying in with the time of year it is celebrated. This circle is held in honour of Yule (Winter Solstice), marking the longest night and shortest day of the year.
Children 13 years and older are welcome to attend provided they are accompanied by an adult and behave responsibly.
Attendees of Moon Rituals at Mystical Dragon are welcome to bring an item to charge on the altar during ritual (this may be a crystal, item of jewellery, a magickal tool, or anything else you deem appropriate to charge with positive energy). You will be asked to place your item on the altar before the ritual starts, and take the item with you at ritual completion.
At Mystical Dragon there is always the option to watch rather than participate in the circle, however everyone is guided when and where to turn etc so that no one participating gets left out. And then everyone is welcome to stay for a cuppa and share some food and socialise with like-minds once we have finished.
Please be aware rituals begin at 7:00pm sharp! The door will be locked at this time and late comers will not be admitted.
These are FREE events. Our rituals usually last between forty minutes and one hour depending on the size of the group. You do not need to book for this event.
The evening will end with some feasting so participants are welcome to bring a plate of finger food to share and tea and coffee will be provided for those who would like to stay awhile and socialise.
Mystical Dragon firmly believes that the merry making is for after ritual. Anyone attending our open circles who appears to be under the influence of any substance may be ejected from the premises. Mystical Dragon reserves the right to refuse entry to any person.
Our Focus for this Circle:
We will be putting energy and magick into our own rejuvenation by going inwards and discovering something about our self through divination and meditation. We will then make a promise to ourselves about something we will do to honour and nurture ourselves over the Winter months. This is a quieter circle celebration, containing no energy raising, so that we may remain reflective and open to messages for the future.
Participants are encouraged to wear dark colours in honour of this time of greatest darkness.
