Possible lines for Drawing down the Moon Hermetic Prayer of Thanksgiving (revised)
Having come forth from the sanctuary, they began their prayers to God, looking to
the south; for when a man wishes to pray to god at sunset, he ought to face south, just
I draw down the bright blue moon from the sky as at sunrise he ought to face east. . .

though brazen cymbals crash and thunder "We thank thee, O thou whose name none can tell,
to keep her in her place; but whom we honour by the appellation "God".

even the chariot of the sun, Because your alone are master, and blessed by the appellation "creator",
my grandfather, grows pale at my song, Because you have shown in acts toward all humanity and in all things,
loving kindness and affection such as a parent feels and more
and I drain the color from the dawn for my potions. you have bestowed on us mind, speech and knowledge,

(From Ovid: Invocation of Hekate) Mind that we may apprehend thee;


Speech that we may call upon thee;
And knowledge, that having come to know thee, and found salvation in
Spinning Mantra the light thou givest, we may be filled with gladness.

Brightly shining light of the world of mind;
True life of the life of man.

Eternal constancy, unmoved, yet makes the universe revolve.

We adore thee,
who alone art good, and crave nothing save knowing, loving,

Orphic Hymn to the Moon Lunar Prayers and Invocations
Hail to you
HEAR, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light,
Khonsu in Thebes
Bull-horn'd and wand'ring thro' the gloom of Night.
Beautiful of setting
The noble child who came foryth from the lotus
With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide
Horus, Lord of time
Night's torch extending, thro' the heav'ns you ride:
Lord of silver
Female and Male with borrow'd rays you shine,
And of the circuit of the underworld
And now full-orb'd, now tending to decline.
The great god, vigorous bull
Mother of ages, fruit-producing Moon,
Son of Amoun
Whose amber orb makes Night's reflected noon:
Come to me
O noble child
Lover of horses, splendid, queen of Night,
Great god in the moon’s disk
All-seeing pow'r bedeck'd with starry light.
Who pleases
Lover of vigilance, the foe of strife,
Coming forth from the four elements
In peace rejoicing, and a prudent life:
The avenger of flesh
Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend,
Who giv'st to Nature's works their destin'd end.
Who’s true name cannot be known
Queen of the stars, all-wife Diana hail!
Whose form cannot be known
Deck'd with a graceful robe and shining veil;
Whose manner cannot be known
Come, blessed Goddess, prudent, starry, bright,
Come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light,
But I know all these things
Shine on these sacred rites with prosp'rous rays,
For Great, Beneficial, Hidden is your name
And pleas'd accept thy suppliant's mystic praise.
Your form is the lunar month
Your wood is vine and persea
Your herb the herb of amoun
Your bird the heron
Your fish the black nile fish
Heaven in your shrine
The earth your forecourt

Thy form is a scarab with the face of a ram; its tail a hawk’s, it wearing
(?) two panther-skins(?).
I am the one who appears shining and endures Let him make me answer to every word [about]
My body grows old when I delay which I am asking here to-day in truth without
falsehood therein. Hasten,
For I am the serpent that came forth from Nun, quickly
I am the proud Ethiopian,
I am rearing serpent of real gold,
There is honey on my lips;
That which I shall say cometh to pass.
I am Anubis, the baby creature;
I am Isis and I will bind him,
I am Osiris the drowned who is bound.
Thou wilt save me from every danger
Protect me, heal me, give me love, praise and reverence
Into my cup here to-day.
Come to me, Isis, mistress of magic, the great sorceress of all the gods.
Horus is before me, Nephthys as my diadem, . . .
Send the mighty lion sons of Mihos
Send the souls of god,
The souls of man,
The souls of the Underworld,
The souls of the horizon,
The spirits, the dead,
Come into my cup and tell me the truth to-day
Concerning that after which I am inquiring:
I summon all your souls and forms to the mouth
Of my vessel;
Let them talk with their mouths,
Let them speak with their lips,
Let them say about that which I ask
Come in to me,
South, North, West, East,
Every breeze of Amenti, for I am the fury of all these gods,
Whose names I have uttered here to-day,
Rouse them for me,
The drowned, the dead; let your soul and your form live for me
Even the fury of Apophis and her daughters I summon
from their places of punishment,
