Artists and Craftsmen
Casting Instructions for 'Artists and Craftsmen'
- Red candle to represent energy and passion
- Blue candle for wisdom
- Smoky incense to represent the Gods forge
- The tools you use in your craft
Place the red candle on the right of your sacred space, the blue on the left and your tools in between. Put the incense in the middle above your tools. Light your incense and build up a smoky atmosphere. Light the candles, red first then blue. Pick up the tool you use most, hold it up and say:
"Hephaestus, God of the forge,
Who despite your disability,
Fashioned articles of beauty
Fit for the Gods
Come to my aid
Help me to create things of beauty
Fit for human use.
Help my inability to create those articles
I see with the inner eye
And cannot make manifest . Help me now I pray"
Now pass your preferred tool through the smoke of the incense.Hold it for a few moments, until you can feel its energy and sense it becoming alive in your hands, then say "Hephaestus I give you my thanks". When you are next working, make a small offering to the god in thanks perhaps a coin,a small painting or article you have made.
