Place your offerings on your altar.

Hold your symbol for Demeter and chant:

“Demeter, Goddess of Fertility and the Harvest,
Today I ask you to help me to overcome obstacles in my life
You searched night and day for Persephone
When you found Persephone she already ate a pomegranate with Hades
I know you were upset but overcame the situation
Because you love your daughter’s happiness more than your own
That’s a strong move and I hope I can become that strong.”

Take in all her energy and imagine all these good things coming to your life.

When you are done thank Demeter for her time, leave offering on the altar for 3 days, clean up your sacred space and then close the circle.
