From Aradia, Gospel of the Witches, by Charles G. Leland, , at sacred-texts.com
Then Virgil taught them also the Scongiurazione or spell to be uttered when good fortune or aught is specially required.
The Conjuration of Diana.
Artemis, I sing thy praises. From thy woodlands great I call unto thee. I have answered thee In the dark of night. Thy hands have fed me, And I am full. Thou Huntress of the Night, Divine Protectress, Keeper of all Mysteries, Let thy light flood me with wisdom And thy presence fill me. I have answered thee In the early morn. Thy song has comforted me And I am strong. Great Goddess of Moon and Magic, Mistress of the deer and owl, Be thou my guide and inspiration. Teach me thy mysteries, And lead me in thy ways. For I have seen thee beneath the cool, dark night, And I have answered thee.
Diana! Diana! Diana! Queen of all enchantresses And of the dark night, And of all nature, Of the stars and of the moon, And of all fate or fortune! Thou who rulest the tide, Who shinest by night on the sea, Casting light upon the waters; Thou who art mistress of the ocean In thy boat made like a crescent, Crescent moon-bark brightly gleaming, Ever smiling high in heaven, Sailing too on earth, reflected In the ocean, on its water; We implore thee give this sleeper, Give unto this good woman The great gift of understanding”
“Diana! Diana! Diana! Regina delle strege! E della notte oscura, E di tutta la natura!
Delle stelle e della luna, E di tutta la fortuna! Tu che reggi la marea, Che risplendi il mare nella sera! Colla luce sulle onde, La padrona sei del oceano, Colla tua barca, fatta, Fatta à mezza luna, La tua barca rilucente, Barca e luna crescente; Fai sempre velo in cielo,
E in terra sulla sera, E anche à navigare Riflettata sulla mare, Preghiamo di dare a questo, Questo buon Femina, Qualunque parlare Di qualunque animali!”
O Thou Beautiful Lady of the Moon,
Virgin Artemis, Mysterious and Triune,
Who bearest a bow And a quiver of splendour
With elegant arrows Made of glittering silver,
Sister of Apollo And daughter of Zeus,
Most Mysterious Woman, Mystick and Abstruse,
Who art Selene above Waxing in the sky,
And Hecate below Waning with a sigh,
And Artemis on earth Protecting child birth,
Thou Triple Goddess Of the Ageless Moon,
Lady of the Nocturnal And Mystick Swoon,
Virgin Artemis Of Lunar Delight,
Admirable Queen Of the Starry Night,
Lover of youth And Guardian of Truth,
Holy Priestess And Virgin Huntress,
Mighty Protectress, Full Moon in Darkness,
Holy Virgin, Holy Guardian,
Blessed Goddess Of the Cypress Garden,
We invoke thy Lunar Ecstasy,
And we invoke thy Mystick Trance!
We invoke thy Magick Sovereignty,
And we invoke thy Secret Guidance!
Come, O come, Lady Diana, Our beloved Moon,
And fill us with your Mystick And Wondrous Swoon!
We invoke thee to enrich Our souls with thy Mystick Power,
Come, O come, in this, Thine holy hour!

This candle I dedicate to thee
Light the way so I might see
Your presence I do call
Mother, nurturer to us all
Hail Goddess Artemis
