Cast circle in usual way, see Full Moon Rite

After libations to the Goddess and God, stand with head bowed and arms crossed over chest; chant the name of the Goddess (such as Hecate) then proceed:

As (names you use for the Goddess) is known,
this is the moon of my Lady as crone,
Lady of darkness, of wisdom, of mysteries shown.
The wheel turns through birth, death, and rebirth,
and every end is a new beginning.
You are the passage from life to life.
You are she who is at the beginning
and the end of all time.
You, with your Lord
(his name)
at your side, abide in us all.
So mote it be.

Enjoy a moment of reverent silence to consider the mysteries and your special closeness to the Goddess of the Witches. You may now do any spell work appropriate for the new moon.

Proceed to Cakes and Wine.
