To go straight to the entire ritual, scroll down to RITE OF AURORA.
The prayer time of Aurora (morning prayer) is in honor of the Holy Daughter.
The following are suggestions, only, and are certainly not mandatory. Devotees may choose which of the following prayers and sections of the Rite of Aurora resonate with them or they may pray in their own words.
If time is limited, a simple Hail, Jana and a quick mantra prayer to the Jana of the day are a wonderful way to begin the day. Or a simple lifting up of the mind and heart to the Holy Daughter, taking a moment to greet Her and thanking Her for the new Dawn.
A brief scripture reading, psalm reading, chant or hymn are all acts of praise and worship for the time of Aurora. Best of all, are prayers offered in your own words.
Please note: The days of the week are named after our Sacred Symbols which represent our Great Mysteries. (See: link coming soon).
If possible, light candle and incense. Females should be veiled with a chapel veil, scarf, hat, mantilla or kerchief. Males may choose to wear a religious head covering. This would not include baseball caps, street-hats or winter-style hats, etc.
To make holy water: (link coming soon).
Please note that we use our own system of Cardinal Directions/ Elements and Days.

Optional: Daughter of Light Prayer from the Madrian:
Daughter of Light, that reigns as Queen of Heaven, all praise and honor we joyfully give to You. Give us to learn that You are by our side in every act that we make. Teach us obedience and humility and joy of heart that comes of self-forgetting. Help us to be clear mirrors of Your Love; reflecting all the beauty of the world; for beauty is the echo of Eternity. Fix our hearts on the Eternal and let us not be turned from You by transient things. Rescue us from the hands of darkness that we may serve You with all our being here and in Your bright Eternity. Blessed are You.
