Invocation to Sagittarius:

Archer born of fire,
Spirit of seeking,
Eyes on the horizon,
Mystical centaur
Whose gift is Clear Sight,
Bless us with the ability
To see truth in all its forms,
Wherever it is found
And wherever it may hide,
Even in its ugliest disguise,
And to speak it aloud
Without fear of censure.
By the power of all insight,
You challenge us
To never falter in our trust.
May we all go forth
In great adventure.

I am born in fire
I come from the flame
I am truth incarnate
Now I call your name.

(Let one who is chosen to do the work of the ritual give each person a candle, and during the singing s/he should go about with the lantern, and let each person light their candle from the lantern, which symbolizes the search for wisdom. After the chant, the candles shall be placed on the floor around the altar in a circle, and any meditation shall be done inside that circle, and they shall be allowed to burn out of their own accord.)
