An Invocation is the call of a God or Goddess. Wiccan witches work with the Gods and Goddesses for their universal energies to provide balance in magical rituals. It is important to balance the masculine and the feminine, the yin and the yang, two sources of energy to provide harmony and the correct direction of the channeled energy. Summons can be as simple or as complex as you like. The Gods and Goddesses can be invoked with herbs, numbers, colors, even images, and at certain times of the year corresponding to the lunar or solar cycle.
Invocation of the Elements
Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Elements of Astral birth, I call you now, wait for me.
In the circle correctly drawn, Safe from psychic curse or blast, I call you now, wait for me.
Of cave and desert, sea and hill, By wand, sword, cup, and pentacle, I call you now, wait for me.
This is my will, so be it!
These prayers below can be used to invoke the Goddess and God during the post circle casting ritual. You can change the words as you see fit. These are related to a specific deity, but “All Gods are one God; and all Goddesses are one Goddess, and there is one initiator.” You can also use chants to raise energy levels.
Invocation to the Goddess
Crescent One of the starry skies, Flowered One of the fertile plain,
Flowing one of the ocean’s sighs, Blessed of the gentle rain.
Hear my singing ‘in the midst of the standing stones, Open me to your mystical light.
Wake me up with your silver tones Join me in my sacred rite!
O Great God Pan, beast and man, Shepherd of the goats and Lord of the Earth,
I call you to attend my rites, In this the most magical of nights.
god of wine, god of the vine, God of the fields and god of the cows,
Wait my circle with your love, And send Your blessings from on high.

Bread of the woods, Bread of the glade, Join me as my magic is worked!

isis of the moon You who are all that ever was,
All that is, And all that will be.

Come down on my circle, I pray, Oh blessed Isis!
Prayer to the Horned God
The Desert Horned, Winged One of the glowing skies,
Striped One of the Splendor Sun, Fallen One of the screams of Samhain.
I call among the standing stones, praying that you, oh old man,
will design to bless my mystic rites, Oh fiery Lord of the Flaming Sun!

Waxed, waxed, growing, growing, Diana’s power flows, flows. (Repeat)
call the god
Ancient god of the depths of the forest, Master of the beast and the sun,

Asking you to hear me pray, And send the force of Your Sun down.

Evening song to God
Hail Beautiful Sun, ruler of the day, Get up in the morning To light my way.
(Said while watching the sunset)
Evening song to the goddess
Hail beautiful moon, ruler of the night, Save me and mine, Until the light.
(Said while looking at the moon)
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, ooooooooooooooooh, Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
The vowels of the English language. Pronounce A=Ah, O=O, U=Oo, E=E, I=eye. This awakens the psychic mind and produces Goddess consciousness.
