is the power of the full moon, the forces of fertility and conception. Everything she touches is brought to fulfillment and completion. The light of the Mother is the promise of enlightenment in the places of darkness, the seed born to light from the darkness that once developed it. As a mother her form is full-figured and her energy is drawing and compelling.
—Witchcraft: A Mystery Tradition by Raven Grimassi
Now I lay me down to rest Mother my body , Father my soul. visions of dreams let dance in my head far away lands in peace I lye. Rest now my body, rest now my soul refreshed in the morning, feelings of wonder and whole. Sleep now me. Blessed be!
Diana, queen of night, In all your beauty bright, Shine on us here, And with your silver beam Unlock the gate of dream; Rise bright and clear. On earth and sky and sea, Your magic mystery Its spell shall cast, Wherever leaf may grow, Wherever tide may flow, Till all be past. O secret queen of power, At this enchanted hour We ask your boon. May fortune’s favor fall Upon true witches all, O Lady Moon!
