This Banishing Ritual is very intense and powerful like many of my other Rituals such as the Full and Dark Moon Rituals. This ritual should be done as close to the Dark Moon as possible. This ritual is for someone(s) who has done you harm by gossip, lies, deceit, etc. Because you are calling on the Goddess Hecate and Her powers to aid you, please make sure that you are completely innocent of the situation.
If you do not know who the person is, or are not positively sure, do not mention any names. Leave that to the Dark Goddess, as She knows.
This ritual deals with the use of parchment paper (or regular paper, if you do not have it). Gather all your material that you need for this ceremony. If using a lit charcoal in the cauldron of Hecate, make sure that the charcoal is hot enough to burn your parchment paper. If you are going to light the parchment paper from the Goddess candle to put in the cauldron, then there is no need to worry about any charcoal after you cleanse the temple room. You will need piece of parchment paper, patchouli oil or clove oil to sprinkle on the parchment paper. (If you do not have any of these oils, that is fine. But I would suggest perhaps ordering some of these oils from a Witchcraft supply store for future use. ) You will also need Dragonís Blood ink or your magickal pen. Before ritual, on a small piece of parchment paper, write down what has been done to you either with Dragonís Blood ink and a feather or your magickal pen which you have only used for magickal workings. Then put a few dabs of Patchouli or Clove oil on the parchment paper. Fold the parchment paper in half and put a banishing pentagram on top and bottom of the folded paper.
After meditating and getting yourself focused and centered, cast and cleanse your circle in the manner you are accustomed to, or you can use the Circle Casting chant either from the Full or Dark Moon Ritual which I prepared. In casting a Circle and calling in the Watchtowers, I go deosil no matter the time of the Moon. When I take the ritual down, I go widdershins in dismissing the Watchtowers and calling back the Circle. To me, when when "closing" a bottle, you go deosil. So, in casting a circle you are closing and making it air tight; when opening a bottle, you go widdershins. So in opening the circle, you are once again letting anything back in. Also, since this is a Dark Moon ritual, and you are working with the Crone and Her energies, there is no need to call in any God. Moon rituals are sacred and for the Goddess only. You call in the Goddess and God at Sabbats, as the Sabbats are the interaction between the Goddess and her Consort...between Earth and Sun. And the Moon......is for the Goddess only!
Calling in the Dragon Watchtowers. (Dragons are great protectors and are also the ones who pulls Hecateís Chariot.)
Move to the East - raise your wand and sayHail, Great Dragon of the East
Move to the South - raise your wand and sayHail Great Dragon of the South

(Now.....your intent - holding your parchment paper over your cauldron say with total conviction and emotion from deep within your heart. Poor the anger into your words for the injustice done to you. Do not just say the words, but feel the words)
Light your parchment paper by the Goddess candle and then put it in the Cauldron of Hecate and release you requests to Her and watch it burn. As you are watching it burn, envision the darkness/negativity being lifted from you and returning to the sender. If you know how it is, fine. If you do not, then just see the shadow of the person receiving what they had sent out. After the parchment paper is done burning say:
It is finished! (In saying this, you are now allowing the Dark Goddess Hecate to handle the situation. It is in Her hands now!)
Then say:Oh Great Goddess, wrap me in your dark cloak and
If you have prepared for Cakes and Wine/Juice (which is in your chalice), bless them both by saying:I bless thee of Creature of Wine and Cakes
Libation: (Take the chalice of wine/juice in both hands and hold it up and say:)In Honor of Thee O Great Goddess Hecate,
(Remember eating of the cakes and wine help to ground you. So it is important to eat and drink.)
If you wish to do any sort of divination and/or meditation, now is the time.
