Cakes and Ale is a ceremony that stands as the transition from the religious worship part of the ritual to the working or introspective part. The Lord and the Lady are honored first in Seax-Wica.

You can, of course, hold an Esbat as often as you’d like, but it should be at least once a month, preferably on the Full Moon or near it (such as the closest weekend or day off). If you do so more often, then this ceremony is held on whichever Esbat is closest to theContinue reading “Full Moon Ritual”
This is the general opening ceremony for any ritual other than the Sabbats (the seasonal festivals), which are all referred to as Esbats.

It also contains some interesting numbers on the growth ofContinue reading “What a ‘Wiccan Expert’ says Wicca is…”
