Day Of Thunder

Day Of Thunder Cover
Here is a ritual in honor of the feast day of Quirinus, the Sabine God of storms and thunder. This ritual is also quite powerful when performed during an actual thunderstorm.

COLOR" and "ELEMENT: "ALTAR" cloth of black patterned with grey clouds and yellow lightning place nine yellow candles, a chalice of rainwater, and if possible, a Tesla coil or other static lightning lamp.

OFFERINGS" out into the rain during the next storm, and stand unprotected in it.

DAILY MEAL" food. Only rainwater to drink.


(Call and response, repeating:)

Dark powers of Air, we honor you!

Lords of the storm cloud, we honor you!

Dancers of the lightning bolt, we honor you!

Roar of the summer skies, we call you!

Zeus of the eagle's eye,

Shango, leaper in the fire,

Oya, Lady of the Wild Winds,

Thor, Lord of the Hammer,

We acknowledge your power

And we give you our respect!

But rather than merely fear you

We ask for your protection,

For the Thunder can be your friend

If you know how to ask!

So we ask this, Gods of Thunder,

Summer storm that rolls across the land,

Protect us from your fury!

Protect us from your wrath!

Protect us from your destruction!

Protect us from your floods!

Protect us from your wrenching winds!

Protect us from the heat of your lightning!

Protect us from your eroding rain!

Protect us from your pelting hail!

Have mercy on us, Gods of Thunder!

(During the last nine lines, one candle is extinguished on each line. As the room falls into darkness, the snuffer of candles flings the rainwater into the libation well. All cry out, "Protect us!" and flee the room.)
