Solitary Samhain ritual.

New Moon Occult Shop is the best place to source everything you need to do your own rituals. I recommend contacting them directly and asking for help finding just what you need as often they will source things they don't usually carry in stock.

Fine a private space and create an altar from whatever you desire. Have an incense burner and some candles, incense and water, salt and some drink and food of some sort.

Light a candle from a lighter then use it to light your candles. I usually use a black one for the Goddess, a green one for the God and some others for quarters (red for south) and sometimes some floarers in my cauldron. Now centre yourself and cast the circle by directing your will outwards to create the circle. If you are new at this, using an athame or wand will help.

Trace the edge of the circle using these. Casting a circle from a standstill is usually something that takes time to be able to do.

Now, I suggest a single black taper or pillar candle in your cauldron for lighting during the ceremony. ALso, have a scrying mirror or tarot cards handy. Samhain is the best time for divining for the year ahead.

Once the circle is cast, call the quarters. I have a standard set of quarter calls but you can use anything.

Now call the Goddess and God. I suggest Morgaine and Talisin as this is a time for wisdom and the begining of the dark half of the year. In as much as you call the spirit of Taelisin, you call the spirit of one of the ladies of the lake. Call them by reaching out to them in your mind or with an invocation. For one for Morrigane, check "Ladies of the Lake" by Caitlann Mathews or a similar book. For a call for Taelisin, check Arthurian myths and make something up which feels right to you. Since this is for you an not a group, it is important your calls feel right for you.

Once called, use the energy raised to bless the food and drink and drink and eat to their honour. Now, light the black candle in the cauldron saying "Fire upon water, light in darkness cast. I am calling to you from outside time and space, from the edge which is the light to the beyond which is darkness. Answer my call. Show me that which I must see and give knowledge of the future to me."

Now is the time for scrying.

To finish, reverse the order of the calls as farewells, reverse the oder you called quarters in and see the circle vanish or again use the wand or athame to ground out the energies and finish the ritual saying "This rite is now ended, this circle now closed. So mote it be!" and stamp or clap to help to disperse that last bit of energy.
