Cantos Anextlon /Sphere of Protection

Gaulish Sphere of Protection

This will not be about learning the SOP (Sphear of protection), just my version of it. There are plenty of places to learn about it. I will have links at the end.

I have not changed much as the format and basic layout resonates with me greatly. I only added a Gaulish twist to it to reflect my customs and traditions.

So Cantos Anextlon roughly translated as Circle Protection, the meaning I gave to one of my Runa is Orbion it shares a very similar ideas to the SOP.
Orbion is part of my Uelîturunâs (Runes of the seeing). Here is a quick detail on it.

Orbion
The symbol of the enclosed space the outsides vs the insides – this makes that which is enclosed sacred. It’s a force to help prevent forces that are unwanted from entering the interior of the enclosed spaces and at the same time creating useful energy within the enclosure
.

So I’m also evoking this Runâ

The Elemental Cross

To begin, face East Visualize Drus, and its intense light coming from its source. With arms out at ones side and palms facing up say.

“Esus the first Druits, tender of Drus”
(Brings both arms up from the sides in an arc, palms join above the head, visualizing a light from the source of Drus as a golden sphere above you).

“Nemetona the sacred, Lady of the borders”
(Bring joined palms down to touch the point of the solar plexus. Visualizing the sphere descending to create a second sphere of golden light reaching your solar plexus)

“Segeta the curative, waters of plenty”
(Leaving the left hand in the same position, move the right hand outwards at the elbow turn head to the right. Visualizing a stream of light coming from your solar plex into the right of you).

“Mogetius the might, giver of order”
(Repeat above but with the left hand).

“May the Dêuoi protect me in this realm”
(Cross arms at the chest, Right over the left arm. Turn your head now into a downward position. Visualize two streams of golden light coming from the sphere at the Solar plex shoot from in front of you and behind you).

Slowly lower your arms and chant 
“Auenâ srourâ”

(Visualize a white sphere within you grow from your core and encase your whole being).

Creating the Sphere of Light

“I thank the Dêuoi for their blessings.”
(Cross arms at your chest).
(Vizulaize the Solar and Telluric strems forming a sphere of great white light. See the lights from each of the directions forming into the great white sphere. See the sphere grow all around you and circle horizontally, vertically , and this is creating a a great sphere of protection just like Orbion).
