Prepare your sacred space as usual, including your altar and say: ''The harvest is now done. A peaceful winter lies before us. Dark and light strike a balance. Thanks be to the Triple Goddess.''
Light the coloured candles.
Carrying the candles, move clockwise around the ritual area, commencing and completing in the East.
At each cardinal point, pause and say: ''Triple Goddess, bless the years harvest that I bring.''
Place the candles safely and alight on the altar. Tap the cauldron three times with your wand and place the symbols in the cauldron then say:Life brings death, brings life. The wheel of the cosmos turns never-ending.
''The negative is replaced by the positive. I honour the Triple Goddess, Harvesting my thoughts I honour the Triple Goddess.''
Meditate for as long as feels comfortable then close the circle. When you have finished, be sure to share the harvest with others of the Goddesses creatures. You might like to bury the apple near an apple or fruit tree as an offering, to scatter the bread for the birds and to scatter herbs if you have used them on waste ground.
