In his poem “The Faerie Queene,” Edmund Spenser presents an Elizabethan take on pagan mythology as a masque (a play). First to appear on the stage is Mutabilitie, who “reigns in all things and to whom all things are subject.” As the four elements enter, we learn that Vesta and Vulcan rule fire, Ops rules earth, Juno rules “ayre,” and Neptune rules the seas.
Mutability is the quality of being changeable, like caterpillars on their way to becoming butterflies. As Spenser wrote, all things are subject to change. What do you want to change?
Call your coven or circle together and talk about mutability (or do this on your own). When (or if) you reach consensus, cast your circle with the deities Spenser names in the elemental corners. Speak aloud what you want to change, individually or working as a group. Now invoke Mutabilitie herself:
Great Mutabilitie, powerful
