All went well and smooth this past June 23, 2012 at 6pm~! Thanks to everyone who attended and made the festivities possible! President Daniel Cureton led a group of 8 through a wiccan mythos duel of the Holly and Oak kings. The circle was opened with the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, Qabbalistic and Rose Crosses and the druid ceremony of proclaiming peace in the four quarters. After the quaurters were invoked, the Fae were invited to attend!
The apex of the ceremony was when The two kings fought a small battle and switched places as the ruling king for the next half of the year. With the beating of a drum the Holly King declared his victory over the Oak king!
Next, president Cureton performed a druidic rite of invkoking the God Beli, a midsummer Welch fire God honored at this time. The radiant energy of Beli was felt by everyone present. He blessed everyone before leaving to attend other rites this Midsummer Day.
The conclusion of the ceremony brought the great right by the Holly King and Queen and a blessing by Oberon, king of the Fae and consort to Mab! The feastivities concluded with the usual feasting of enchiladas made by Ashton Longhurst, the Sacred Keeper of Enchiladas and summer Russian soup, Okroshka.
