Sometimes we become scattered, each one of us off on our own path, unable to come together in unity with others. And yet we instinctively know that together we can accomplish far more than we can alone. Even when we have a clear responsibility to each other, we still find it difficult to come together in unified purpose. So I decided to do a ritual for unity of purpose, offering the energy of that intention to the collective consciousness for anyone who might find it useful.
To cast my intention, I chose Thursday (today) during the 7 pm hour. I chose black and white candles for balance and a blue lapis lazuli merkaba and candle for positive Soul communication. Additionally, I created a sigil for unity of purpose using the Square of Jupiter. The planet corresponding with Thursday, I also chose Jupiter for its expansive influence as well as its teaching qualities. Sometimes a little education is required so that people understand the wisdom of unified purpose, so using that particular square to create a unity sigil made sense.
I chose 7 pm as the appropriate time for the ritual as its correspondences include diversity, care for others, and healing differences. Amethyst as well as various quartz pieces, fluorite, and selenite also appear on the altar to bring in energies of Higher Consciousness to the ritual. Frankincense is the incense that I used.
After lighting the incense and candles, I cast the circle, performed the Blessing of the Norns as well as the Pentagrams of Protection before the actual ritual.
Blessings of the Norns
- Face East and visualize rays of light moving through you as in the symbol for Awen
- Beo existere, Verdandi
- Beo existere, Skuld
- Beo existere, Urdh
- Perfectus in caritate
- Et fiduciam
Pentagrams of Protection
- Face East, drawing a banishing pentagram in each quarter
- Dea Aradia…erigo navitas (east)
- Dea Brigid…erigo navitas (south)
- Dea Tiamat…erigo navitas (west)
- Dea Elen…erigo navitas (north)
- Coram animus imperium
- Tergo aqua imperium
- Dextera incendium imperium
- Laetrosum terrenus imperium

Repeat the Blessings of the Norns
Come to alignment and place right hand over the sigil and say:
- ab initio (from the beginning)
- ab intra (from within)
- ab origine (from the Source)
- alea iacta est (the die has been cast)
- audemus jura vostra defendere (we dare to defend our rights)
- et simili animos (and bring like minds)
- unum est in proposito (in unified purpose)
- concilio et labore (by wisdom and effort)
- concordia cum veritate (in harmony with truth)
- consummatum est (it is completed)
Repeat the chant three times or as many times as you feel necessary and then close the ritual in your preferred manner. Witches are as individual as the next person and working magick or performing rituals are the same so feel free to begin and end the ritual in a way that makes sense. My rituals begin and end with establishing the circle or sacred space and include various correspondences including the day, hour, moon phase, color, etc. But I don’t belong to a coven or subscribe to any one tradition so I do what resonates for me.
I like sigils whether they’re made using magick squares or circles, or runes. I like how they flow and combine energies in service to a greater purpose and I use them often in magickal workings. I made a smaller version of today’s sigil to be carried in a pocket when communicating with others to help align and unify the moment. Sigils can be drawn on any surface, or carved above a doorway, or in the sand at the beach. I like to draw sigils in the sand and then observe the ocean absorb their resonance, all of Gaia becoming one with my intention.
I offer this ritual with love, my intention only to create the space for unity to exist. It’s a choice that we make, to live in service to self or in loving awareness of Self in others. Unity is our natural state of consciousness, but so many have forgotten that truth. Let this ritual for unity of purpose serve as a reminder of who we are to each other and allow its blessings to fill us with love and joy.
Blessings to all!
