12th C. Herbal Invocation
'Earth, divine Goddess, Mother Nature
who generates all things and brings forth anew the sun which you have given to the nations; Guardian of sky and sea and of
all gods and powers....through your power all nature falls silent and then sinks in sleep. And again you bring back the light
and chase away night and yet again you cover us most securely with your shades. You do contain chaos infinite, yea and winds
and showers and storms; you send them out when you will and cause the seas to roar; you chase away the sun and rouse the storm.
Again when you will you send forth the joyous day and give the nourishment of life with your eternal surety; and when the
soul departs to you we return. You are indeed duly called Great Mother of the Gods; you conquer by your divine name. You are
the source of strength of nations and of gods, without you nothing can be brought to perfection or be born; you are Great
Queen of the Gods. Goddess! I adore thee as divine; I call upon your name; be pleased the grant that which I ask of you, so
shall I give thanks to thee, Goddess, with due faith.
Hear, I beseech you, and be favorable
to my prayer. Whatsoever herb your power does produce, give, I pray, with goodwill to all nations to save them and grant me
this my medicine. Come to me with your powers, and howsoever I may use them, may they have good success to whosoever I may
give them. Whatever you grant, may it prosper. To you all things return. Those who rightly receive these herbs from me, please
make them whole. Goddess, I beseech you, I pray as a suppliant that by your majesty you grant this to me.
Now I make intercession to you all
your powers and herbs and to your majesty, you whom Earth parent of all has produced and given as a medicine of health to
all nations and has put majesty upon you, I pray you, the greatest help to the human race. This I pray and beseech from you,
be present here with your virtues, for She who created you has Herself promised that I may gather you into the goodwill of
him on whom the art of medicine was bestowed, and grant for health's sake good medicine by grace of your powers. I pray grant
me through your virtues that whatsoever is wrought by me through you may in all it's powers have good and speedy effect and
good success and that I may always be permitted with the favor of your majesty to gather you into my hands and to glean your
fruits. So shall I give thanks to you in the name of the majesty which ordained your birth.'
A chant to Disperse a Wind
Take a feather you have found
Plant it firmly
in the ground
Legend has it, so they say
That those winds will fade away
A Spirit-Summoning Spell
To create an incense portal for
the ancestor spirits from the otherworld, you will need an altar complete with pictures and items to honor them. In a strongly
circle, place lavender, cinnamon, and wormwood on the coals. Call out only to benevolent and loving ancestor
spirits by saying:
Blood of my blood, you spirits
Come from below and from above;
Entities loving who wish me well,
Come to this circle when I sound the
Intone a bell three times and
welcome the ancestors’ spirits. Afterwards, ring the bell seven times to send them back through the portal so you can
close your circle.

The Mighty. Goddess of love and fertility.

(Arabian: Saudi, Nabatean)
Al-Uzzah rules birth, death, marriage,
springs, warfare, raids, grain, the Zodiac, the change of the seasons, the course of heavenly bodies, and Venus as the morning
star. The many variant spellings of her name include Al Uzzah, al-Uzza, Al ëUzza, Al Uzza, ëUzza, and Uzza. Her titles include
The Great One, The Propitious, and The Venus of Mecca.
Al-Uzzahís symbols include an acacia
tree, a cluster of acacia trees, three samura palm trees, and the stone in the Ka'aba at Mecca. Green, her sacred color,
was adopted by Islam as its sacred color. The acacia is her sacred tree. Grain and Syrian rue, the harmala plant, are also
sacred to Al-Uzzah. Granite and meteorites are her sacred stones. Her sacred animals include the cow, lioness, and snake.
In her aspect as Mari (also spelled Meri), she is a sea goddess. Meriís title is The Fish, and dolphins are sacred to her.
Invoke Al-Uzzah for fertility, battle,
marriage, riches, astrology, oracles, love spells, seasonal magic, the fertility of crops, killing or taming wild beasts,
and guidance in adventures. Invoke her as Mari for sea spells, and to protect seafarers. Al Uzzah received blood offerings
in ancient times, sacrifices of humans and animals. She was also honored with visitations, pilgrimages to the places where
her trees stood, or where her stone stood with a canopy above it.
