Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

Begin facing South, the direction of the Earth.

Touching the forehead, say “IO EVOHE DIANA.“
Touching the breast, say “IO EVOHE DIANUS.”
Touching the right shoulder, say “EKO EKO AZARAK.“
Touching the left shoulder, say “EKO EKO ZOMELAK.
Crossing the arms upon the breast, say “SO MOTE IT BE.”

Turning to the East, the direction of Air and the rising Sun, draw an invoking pentagram. Inhale, draw forearms up and rest fists on temples. Step left foot forward and push hands out away from the body and vibrate the name “ARADIA”. Stand straight, left arm at your side, right forefinger held to lips.
Turning to the South, direction of Earth, perform same movements, and say “CERNUNNOS” then perform sign of silence.
Turning to the West, direction of Water, perform same movements, and say “CERRIDWEN” then perform sign of silence.
Turning to the North, direction of Fire, perform same movements, and say “LUCIFER” then perform sign of silence.

Crossing your arms in front, say:
“Before me the Lady of the Moon;
Behind me the Horned Lord;
On my right hand Hekate Enodia;
On my left hand Herne the Hunter;
For about me flames the Pentagram,
And in the centre shines the Grail.”

Touching the forehead, say “IO EVOHE DIANA.”
Touching the breast, say “IO EVOHE DIANUS.“
Touching the right shoulder, say “EKO EKO AZARAK.”
Touching the left shoulder, say “EKO EKO ZOMELAK.”
Crossing the arms upon the breast, say “SO MOTE IT BE.”

Kiss left-hand fingertips in salute.
