Short Rituals to mark the Quarters of Day and Night

Before retiring to bed I thank the Powers of the West for the evening Blessings of Healing, Relaxation, and Peace I close the Western Gate. I call upon the Powers of the North, the Element of Earth and the Great Bear in the Stary Heavens to give me rest and protection during the night. I open the Gate to the North.

On rising I thank the Powers of the North for their nocturnal Blessings and close the Northern Gate. I call upon the Powers of the East, the Element of Air and the Hawk of Dawn soaring in the clear skies to awaken and freshen me, and give me clarity and vision in my morning tasks. I open the Gate to the East.

At noon I thank the Powers of the East for their morning Blessings, and close the Eastern Gate. I call upon the Powers of the South, the Element of Fire, and the Great Stag in the heat of the Chase to give me strength and energy during the afternoon. I open the Gate to the South.

As evening begins I thank the South for the Blessings of Energy and close the Southern Gate. I turn to the West and call upon its Powers, the Element of Water and the Salmon of Wisdom in the Sacred Pool to give tranquillity and healing through the evening hours. I open the Gate to the West.
