Athame’s Represents the Masculine…..
This post follows on from Presentation Of The Chalice.
Hold your athame towards the sky in both hands and say:
O Great Lord, bless this athame. May it be forever unsullied, bound to your greatness so that no thing be harmed. 0 my Lord, bless this athame. May it be used only for the good and glory of the One, One heart, one hope, one love.
O Beauteous Lady, bless this athame. May it be untainted in thy service, dedicated to your goodness, harming none. 0 my Lady, bless this athame. May it be used only for the good and glory of the One. Great Lord and Lady, so let it be.
Now close your circle.
Your most important tools and objects are now ready for use in your magical workings. The two objects above are perhaps the most easily recognizable and well-known magical tools. However, wands are so traditionally tied up with magic that many people will consider the wand to be mote important than the athame and chalice.
