Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram Opening
Archangels, watch over me, bless me, protect me, and see to the success of this ritual.
Hekas hekas estes bebeloi!
Away, away be ye all negative spirits that would harm the sanctity of this rite. I call upon all helpful spirits, Deities, and ancestors: Watch over my working, opening the household so that the power of the Agathos Daimon can come forward and the ancient and shining ones be present. Protect all members of the household until the ritual is concluded.
Come to me, U from the four winds, ruler of all, who breathed the spirit of life into all persons, whose is the hidden and unspeakable name. At whose name even the daimons, when hearing, are terrified. Of whom heaven is head, ether body, earth feet, and the environment water: the Agathos Daimon. U are the ocean, begetter of good things and feeder of the civilized world. Yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.

Your name and your spirit rest upon the good. Come into my mind and my understanding for all the time of my life and accomplish for me all the desires of my soul. For U are I, and I, U. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon, nor visitation, nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul and invoke.

I call on U, eternal and unbegotten, who are one, who alone hold together the whole creation of all things, whom none understand, whom the gods worship, whose name not even the gods can utter. Accomplish for me this petition.
O blessed Hermes, servant of the Agathos Daimon, U whose hand is this moment, who rules over this day, bring your light to me!
Light the candle
Hermes, draw near, and to my pray’r incline, angel of Zeus, and Maia’s son divine;
Studious of contests, ruler of mankind, with heart almighty, and a prudent mind.
Celestial messenger, of various skill, whose pow’rful arts could watchful Argus kill:
With winged feet, ‘tis thine thro’ air to course, O friend of man, and prophet of discourse:
Great life-supporter, to rejoice is thine, in arts gymnastic, and in fraud divine:
With pow’r endu’d all language to explain, of care the loos’ner, and the source of gain.
Whose hand contains of blameless peace the rod, Corucian, blessed, profitable God;
Of various speech, whose aid in works we find, and in necessities to mortals kind:
Dire weapon of the tongue, which men revere, be present, Hermes, and thy suppliant hear;
Assist my works, conclude my life with peace, give graceful speech, and me memory’s increase.
Hermes, much honored, my patron, ruler of this day and hour, psychopomp: aid me in my aim, bring forth Zeus Jupiter that I may petition him.
O Zeus much-honored, Zeus supremely great, to U this holy rite I consecrate,
my prayers and expiations, king divine, for all things round thy head exalted shine.
The earth is yours, and mountains swelling high, the sea profound, and all within the sky.
Jovial king, descending from above, magnanimous, commanding, sceptered Zeus; All-parent, principle and end of all, whose power almighty, shakes this earthly ball;
Even Nature trembles at your mighty nod, loud-sounding, armed with lightening, thundering God.
Source of abundance, purifying king, O various-formed from whom all natures spring;
Propitious hear my prayer, give blameless health, with peace divine, and necessary wealth.
Zeus, much honored, my patron, of high dignity and ruler of this ascendent: aid me in my aim, bless all my workings and grant me dignity and wisdom, bring forth the Nereids that I may petition them.
Daughters of Nereus, resident in caves merg’d deep in Ocean, sporting thro’ the waves;
Fanatic fifty nymphs [Nymphai Einalioi], who thro’ the main delight to follow in the Triton’s train,
Rejoicing close behind their cars to keep; whose forms half wild, are nourish’d by the deep,
With other nymphs of different degree leaping and wand’ring thro’ the liquid sea:
Bright, wat’ry dolphins, sonorous and gay, well pleas’d to sport with bachanalian play;
Nymphs beauteous-ey’d, whom sacrifice delights, send rich abundance on our mystic rites;
For you at first disclos’d the rites divine, of holy Bacchus and of Persephone,
Of fair Calliope from whom I spring, and of Apollo bright, the Muse’s king.
Nereids, as I cast my lines for a new home help me to reel in the best possible living arrangement for me, my loved ones, and my friends.
Noble Roman youth, martyr,
U who quickly brings things to pass,
U who never delays
dear martyr and protector, Saint Expedite,
U who knows necessity and urgent need.
U whom I visited in New Orleans
I come to U asking a favor:
Secure for us the best possible living arrangement for me, my loved ones, and my friends.
If U do this for me I will build U an altar in our new home, offer U pound cake baked in our new oven, offer U a bottle of fine rum, and spread your blessed name in person and online.
May I receive your blessings and favors.
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
Our Lady of Loretto, I implore your Holy Name. Help me find a house in Union of your Holy Son our Lord Jesus Christ and your holy husband St. Joseph. By the peace and happiness that in your Holy House of Loreto, where U lived there happily, by the grace and blessing that the Holy Father granted U, I implore U to help me. I concentrate on my future home. Holy Mother of Loreto grant us health, peace and happiness and help us in our lives. Just like God blessed your house and made it holy, I ask that U and God protect and bless my future home. If U help me Holy Virgin and grant me my request, securing for us the best possible living arrangement for me, my loved ones, and my friends, I will make my friend bless U also.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Please, Aion, ruler of hope, giver of wealth, O holy Agathos Daimon, bring to fulfillment all favors.
I have been attached to your holy form
I have been given power by your holy name
I have acquired your emanation of the goods
Lord, god of gods, master, daimon
For U are I, and I, U. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon nor visitation nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul. For yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.
I give thanks to U Our Lady of Loreto
I give thanks to U St. Expedite
I give thanks to U Nereids
I give thanks to U Zeus
I give thanks to U Hermes
I give thanks to U Agathos Daimon
Go away, go away; into your own heavens, into your own palaces, into your own courses. Keep me healthy, unharmed, not plagued by evil spirits, free from calamity and without terror. Hear me during my lifetime.
