Introduction to the Rite which Follows
This rite is composed of rituals compiled from both Right and Left Hand Path magickians and serves to invoke one of the most widely honored deities in magick. The sources of this ritual are attributed at the bottom of the article and color coding is used to make the origins of various fragments clear. The purpose of this rite is to increase the witch’s magickal power and strength of will. This rite can be practiced by anyone of any path. In order to get the maximum results from this ritual, the celebrant should perform it regularly for a period of two or more weeks while abstaining from invocations of any other entities until this period is complete. Some or all of the sigils should be printed out and placed on the altar (or merely sprawled across the floor of wherever the rite is being performed). Once the invocation is complete, the celebrant may ingest some beverage or other substance as an offering to the deity within him. The names in bold are to be vibrated and the phrase in italics is to be chanted. The word “theriomorphic” means “spiritual yet animal-shaped” and “pilose” means “covered in hair.

Great God Cernunnos, return to earth again! Come at my call and show thyself to men. Shepherd of Goats, upon the wild hill’s way, Lead thy lost flock from darkness into day.

O Mighty Stag, O answer to me!
