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, you 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. You 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 you are I, and I, you. 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 you, 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 Ares, servant of the Agathos Daimon, you whose hand is this moment, who rules over this day, bring your light to me!
Light the candle
Magnanimous, unconquer’d, boistrous Mars, in darts rejoicing, and in bloody wars
Fierce and untam’d, whose mighty pow’r can make the strongest walls from their foundations shake:
Mortal destroying king, defil’d with gore, pleas’d with war’s dreadful and tumultuous roar:
Thee, human blood, and swords, and spears delight, and the dire ruin of mad savage fight.
Stay, furious contests, and avenging strife, whose works with woe, embitter human life;
To lovely Venus, and to Bacchus yield, to Ceres give the weapons of the field;
Encourage peace, to gentle works inclin’d, and give abundance, with benignant mind.
O Universal mother, Ceres [Deo] fam’d august, the source of wealth, and various nam’d:
Great nurse, all-bounteous, blessed and divine, who joy’st in peace, to nourish corn is thine:
Goddess of seed, of fruits abundant, fair, harvest and threshing, are thy constant care;
Who dwell’st in Eleusina’s seats retir’d, lovely, delightful queen, by all desir’d.
Nurse of all mortals, whose benignant mind, first ploughing oxen to the yoke confin’d;
And gave to men, what nature’s wants require, with plenteous means of bliss which all desire.
In verdure flourishing in honor bright, assessor of great Bacchus [Bromios], bearing light:
Rejoicing in the reapers sickles, kind, whose nature lucid, earthly, pure, we find.
Prolific, venerable, Nurse divine, thy daughter loving, holy Proserpine [Koure]:
A car with dragons yok’d, ‘tis thine to guide, and orgies singing round thy throne to ride:
Only-begotten, much-producing queen, all flowers are thine and fruits of lovely green.
Bright Goddess, come, with Summer’s rich increase swelling and pregnant, leading smiling Peace;
Come, with fair Concord and imperial Health, and join with these a needful store of wealth.
Holy Demeter, mother of all. Let your favor fall on me and my house. Let us be prosperous and bless us with wealth and good health. Favor our harvests that they insure increase and shower us with kindness.
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 you are I, and I, you. 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 you Demeter
I give thanks to you Ares I give thanks to you 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.
