In this beautiful and powerful rite, the practitioner invokes the Goddess directly into herself or himself, as the case may be. In some variations, a High Priestess HPs may go into a trancelike state and speak the words of the Goddess, or it may be a formal monologue calling upon the Goddess in her many forms. Regardless of how you practice it, Drawing Down the Moon is best performed on the night of the full moon , or on one of the nights immediately before. Jason Mankey at Patheos explains ,. When a High Priestess or Priest draws down the moon she literally draws the Goddess inside of herself. Once the Goddess is there, the Priestess is absent, and the Goddess speaks through her daughter and interacts with those around Her There are many different ways to draw down the moon, and the method you use will vary, depending on your needs and the customs of your individual spiritual tradition. For this version, begin by standing at your altar with your arms crossed over your chest, and feet together. Face towards the full moon.
