Love for Couples
Casting Instructions for 'Love for Couples'
- 2 red roses
- 1 white candle
- 1 red candle
- 2 cherries
You can easily do this while you're on holidays/vacation, or if it's not possible at that time - go for a weekend trip. The easiest is, of course, if you live near the river, or any water. You should be alone there and don't disturb anyone. You should go to the place with the water - lake sea, but preferably river, because it's a moving/running water. This should be done just after the sunset, in an early evening
Light the candles and leave them burning behind you, on the river bank (or beach), but not too far from the river, while you turn to the water, take each other's hand and step into the water together, each keeping the rose in that other, empty hand. You don't have to go far. Say these words together:
"Our love is warm like the fire,
deep like the river,
free like the air,
solid as the ground(soil).
God/goddess (whatever is your choice),
we're asking you to bless it,
and let us keep it
in our hearts,
for the rest of our lives."
Then throw the roses into the water - it's best if the river stream slowly takes them away, as they float on its surface. Get back to the beach, eat one cherry each and, without turning your face to the river, throw the kernels in it, behind your back. Don't look back if you don't have to. Leave, leaving the candles burning, and let the 'offers' being accepted quietly.
Come back in sunrise to the very same place, get in the water with your whole body, you can swim too... bless the river by blessing it (her), all its (her)brothers and sisters on the planet. Then thank your goddes for listening to you, and leave. If the candle flame still burns (which will, of course, depend on the size of the candle, and wind, and other factors) - leave them there; if not - take then home, wrap it in a piece of red cotton or silk, and keep it somewhere in your bedroom, especially if you live together, or each can take one candle and keep it in their own bedroom.
The ritual can be repeated, but do not come for it again until the same time next year.
