First Fruits Ritual: Acknowledge and Share the Fruits of your Labours

On February 2nd 2020, we celebrate the first of eight very special annual celestial events. These celestial events have been recognised and celebrated for eons as being pivotal times where the influx of light entering the planet has the potential to shape and change the course of our lives and positively influence our spiritual and psychological development.

The sacred cycle of cosmic light that the eight festivals encompass invites us to make an active connection to the forces of light at work in the greater cosmos. These are the forces that influence human consciousness through expansive and contractive energies that also exist in nature – night and day, the cycles of the moon and seasonal fluctuations.

The Lammas, or First Fruits festival encourages the sharing of what has been learned, created and accrued. It is a time to reflect positively upon your achievements and the energetic impetus is to liberate and offer these insights and revelations as a gift to divinity.

In this Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual you will be working with specific celestial allies to enable you to acknowledge and bless yourself and your achievements and then liberate this blessing into the cosmos. 

The process of letting go creates space for the new initiatives that are inevitably awaiting your attention. The closing of one cycle always invites the opening of a new one and a new adventure awaits. You will benefit more fully from the fruits of your labours by sharing them, knowing that their gifts will be delivered to exactly the right place.

The celestial allies who have stepped forth to support you to send this powerful affirmation of achievement are:

  •  The planet Mercury, planet of conscious awareness, communication and detachment
  •  Zodiacal sign of Sagittarius, zodiacal sign of expanding horizons and generosity
  •  1st Mansion of Life, mansion of life of self-expression and personal action

Ritual: Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual©

This Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual© is a very effective Eighth Ray magic ritual that is used when you want to apply a comprehensive celestial influence to change your personal world. The ritual links you into the sacred cycles and numinous power of the planet Venus, known to the ancients as the ‘Radiant Queen of the Sky’.

While the Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual© is ideally carried out with eight steps it can also be conducted using the simple five-step ritual process shown below. For the full eight-step ritual process please see my book Eighth Ray Magic: The Magic of the Goddess – The Magic of Co-Creation

Magical focus

“I acknowledge and share the gifts that are the fruits of my labours”

Steps of the ritual

Before you begin

Establish your magical focus which is “I acknowledge and share the gifts that are the fruits of my labours”

Put on your altar the following Porta Alchémica® alchemical formulations that correlate with your magical objective:

You will also need:

Put a small amount of pure water in your chalice.

Optional: Burning ritual incense creates a magical bridge between heaven and earth and the energies you are working with. Make sure the charcoal tablet is glowing and ready in the incense burner before you add the incense. Put a pinch of the planetary incense on the glowing charcoal before you begin the ritual.

Step 1

Anoint yourself with ritual oils

Place three drops of Mercury planetary anointing oil and three drops of Sagittarius zodiacal anointing oil in a triangle pattern on your inner wrists. Then using your right index finger, touch the anointing oil on your left wrist and anoint your third eye between the eyebrows with the symbol of the lemniscate which is a figure eight on its side.

Then rub your wrists together in a figure eight motion, inhale the fragrance deeply three times and say:

“I attune to the magical frequency of Mercury and Sagittarius”

Step 2

Planetary Elixir

Place three drops of Mercury planetary elixir in a triangular pattern into the water in the chalice. Start at the apex of the triangle with one drop of planetary elixir, then at each other point of the triangle.

As you do so, say silently or out loud:

“I call upon the power, intelligence and purposeful action of the planet Mercury…”

Step 3

Zodiacal Elixir

Repeat as above with Sagittarius zodiacal elixir and say silently or out loud:

“…to express powerfully, intelligently and purposefully through the zodiacal sign of Sagittarius…”

Step 4

Mansion of Life Elixir

Repeat as above with 1st house mansions of life elixir and say silently or out loud:

“… and manifest powerfully, intelligently and purposefully in the 1st mansion of my life.”

Then place your hands in a triangular shape, thumb to thumb, index finger to index finger over the top of the chalice. Blow through the triangle onto the water and then say:

“The sacred alchemical rose flowers within the chalice of my being.”

Slowly drink the potentised water in your chalice that has alchemically transformed to now become an alchemical Flower of Venus ritual libation.

Step 5

Lock in the magical frequency and seal the aura

Spray Porta Alchemica Alchemist Aura Mist three times in the shape of a triangle – above the head, then above the right and then left shoulder to lock in your intent and seal the aura to hermetically contain the energies and powers you wish to express and make manifest. The Porta Alchemica Alchemist Aura Mist acts to create the alchemical rosarium, the sacred rose garden of the alchemist. It encloses the purified holy place, the sacred space wherein the alchemist can contemplate and work with the energies now contained in the aura, the ‘alembic’ of their being. Then say decisively and forcefully:

“Consummatum est!”

Your ritual is now complete.

Summary of everything you need for this ritual

This powerful Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual can be conducted on the day of Lammas, First Fruits festival and for as long as you feel the call to share the fruits of your labours.
