Remembering The Dead -- Herbal Ritual

Materials:
Juniper
Bay
Yew
Alyssum
Parsley
Basil
Rose
Rosemary

Cast your circle using rose petals and rosemary sprigs to define it.
Say
Before the altar:

"The wheel of life turns,
The cycle of rebirth continues.
Those beyond life,
You are remembered today.
Gifts of love and hope,
Are offered whole heartedly,
To those we remember
To those we do not,
To all of those we have lost.
Dark Lady and Dark Lord,
In your gentle embrace,
Our dead you have taken.
All thread of life are cut,
All threads are woven anew.
May the wheel turn,
And begin the cycle again.
We give freely
Juniper for love
Yew for rebirth
Bay for strength
Parsley for cleansing
Alyssum for happiness
Basil for peace.
May our blessings be received.
You are remembered."

This ritual can be done when a loved one passes . It celebrates rebirth
And passing from one phase of life to the next

Thank you Angel, that is beautiful. My Friend passed not long ago and this will be a beautiful way to remember him.
