Moon of 1001 Obeisances

The Capricorn Full Moon is the time to consider the polarities of leadership and service. One who wishes to lead must first learn to serve. Capricorn is the sign of mastery, and of service, performing thankless tasks willingly for the greater good. Bees and ants understand how service roles support the group.
Rituals are performed through the orderly fulfillment of roles and tasks, often using ritual tools. Undertaking humble tasks with a willing heart creates a unified spirit of sacredness.
A solitary practitioner may emphasize each task in the circle-casting and ritual procedure. Slowly move through the ritual , mentally assuming the role of acolyte, cup-bearer, circle-caster, and finally, invoker of a deity. Bow at each direction, and bow to the representation of the chosen deity.
In a group, these roles are assigned to each coven member, plus censer-holder, athame-wielder, paten-holder, etc. Each member concentrates on performing their task hummbly and quietly, without ego. Honor the gods through bowing, kneeling, gifts, and service. It is no coincidence that leaders are often those who gave the greatest service to the group and the gods.
