Samhain Rite
Greetings to All We will be running our Samhain rite in queens wood in Highgate. This is a time when the veil between this realm on the firmament and the magic realm is thin. We can look to our loved ones from the summer lands and ask for guidance and pray for them all. It is a creative magical rite where we will be asking everyone to bring a pumpkin or turnip carved out so we may place them in the rite. As it may be slightly chilly please wrap up warm and bring a blanket if you wish. We plan to meet at 4pm in the pub and then go to the woods to run our rite at around 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome as this is a public event Just to remind you the Order of the Horse and Moon is for 21 and over, so no children or dogs please. Feel free to bring any crystal or offering to place inside the circle. Please remember we need to leave the woodland as we found it so everything must be taken away after our event. We ask everyone to bring a carved pumpkin or turnip for the rite and we will provide tea lights to go inside your pumpkins. We look forward to seeing you at this event and you will find us easily in the pub as we will have a stang with us. May the goddess be with you The Summoner

What we're about

"An it harm none do what ye will"

Dooreen Valiente (Thames Valley Coven)

The London Wicca Meetup Group is a common first port of call for those in the South East of England who are interested in Wicca. It is run by the Order of the Horse and Moon whose primary coven is the Coven of the Horse and the Moon. We are the largest and most active Wiccan group on Meetup in the UK and one of the major forces within the Wiccan tradition in this country.

The group has the following objectives

1) To allow Wiccans to meet like minded individuals who are interested in the subject.

2) To allow those interested in Wicca to learn more about its practice.

3) To facilitate the practice of Wiccan rites

4) To provide a way for individuals to join a Wiccan coven

The group provides a straightforward access point to the Wiccan tradition and we are dedicated to facilitating access to initiatory coven Wicca for all seekers. We have a strong record of facilitating initiation into Wicca and Witchcraft with many intiations taking place in the last year. Although this site is run by Cochranian Wiccans we have helped facilitate into a number of different covens. These traditions in which initiations have taken place include Cochranian and Gardnerian Wicca and Traditional Witchcraft. We have many neophytes and novices in training currently in different Wiccan lines. We seek to match the seeker with the tradition of their choosing.

Our Order and coven websites are below

We also run a major Wicca website at

http://www.wicca.org.uk

We run a full set of eight Sabbats. Four are public rites and four are social meetups in pub with training for new members. These can be attended by any member or friend.

We also run a cycle of Esbats. Within our coven structure an esbat is normally held on every full moon, although occasionally these events may be open to guests normally they are not . They are held on the full moon, and are normally held in private houses. The Order of the Horse and its associated covens also hold a number of events not on meetup which are for the members associated with the covens. Although the covens are spiritual groups they are also groups of friends and hold their own gatherings.

We try to avoid bringing members to events in private houses who are unknown to our network unless they are with a friend we know. Additionally we are a group for Wiccans. Our focus is on those seeking to join the Wiccan path. The simply curious are welcome to attend our public events. If you are committed to another spiritual path we will not seek to convert you and there would not be much benefit to you coming to our group.

The Order of the Horse and the Moon runs a correspondence course over seven month called 'Seven Moons to Magic'. This introduces Wicca and normally offers the option of initiation into Cochranian Wicca for those who seek it. The course is free, however there is a requirement to complete written work and pay postage costs for those who are continuing to work through the course.

The group is also limited to the over 21s. We have special arrangements for those who are 20.
