"Whenever ye have need of anything, once in a month, and better it be when the Moon be full, then ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who am Queen of all Witcheries" - *Charge of the Goddess by Doreen Valiente.
Our Full moon rituals are not so secret ..but we do gather on or near a full moon to adore & worship the Goddess, so that all may magically benefit from our gathering. On this Aquarius Full Moon night, we'll be gathering for our monthly `TLC: Full Moon Ritual' (Tamesa London Circle started in 2006). This particular ceremony honours Sekhmet the In 2013, we did a `submerging Sekhmet' and last year in 2018, performed `Rise of Sekhmet'. So what follows now is the honouring of this great Lion Headed Egyptian Warrior Goddess - for her blessings of power and protection.
No prior knowledge or experiences of wicca or ritual magic is necessary for you to attend this. Just come with an open mind. Be friendly and non-intrusive. Connect with others, and join in the ceremony.
Fee: £5/ £3 concessions.
Magic: protection/ spellcraft:
On this full moon, once we invoke the powers of Sekhmet, we'll be creating protection magic for us all - charms that you may take home for your own psychic and magical protection.
Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). Organiser (Mani) & others will by the outdoor seats. We'll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We're usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space.
Thames & Tides:
Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank...just few meters away from the water. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**
What to bring:
• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:
After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it's raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.
