Libation

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

An offering to the gods. Whenever Witches have a meal, before they themselves eat or drink they pour some wine onto the earth, onto the altar, or into the fire as a sign of giving thanks to the gods for what they have. This is an essential part of the ceremony of Cakes and Wine, a part of every Witch meeting, but also is done any time Witches are feasting together. Where a meeting is taking place indoors and it is not possible to pour the wine directly onto the ground, it is poured into a libation dish. This is then taken outside and its contents poured on the ground immediately following the closing of the Circle.
