Fasting of the hands

Handfasting is the marriage rite used by many neo-Pagans and Wiccans. The term itself comes from the custom of shaking hands over a contract. It was used in Scotland for the engagement period of a year and a day before a wedding was proved.

In most Pagan traditions today it may mean a non-state registered wedding or one in which a marriage license is filed. For some it is a year and a day, renewable "so long as love shall last" and for others a commitment to be together through many lives.

There are probably as many rituals for this as there are people who have joined themselves together.

The hands are generally bound with a cord as part of the ritual.

Handfasting with a twist. Today, more and more couples are looking for a way to express a deeper commitment to each other. Many have been married before and want their new partner to know a greater level of commitment. Or they have children from another marriage and want them to feel apart of the ceremony that is going to change their lives too. And some are solemates,and want to decair their love. All perfectly illustrated by adding the symbolic handfasting ritual.

Tieing the couple's hands together as they say their vows; beautiful & romantic; but beware, also a binding. A serious vow made connecting the couple and their families FOREVER. It's a very romantic and very seriouse ritual pefect to incorporate kids and blend families. It's very powerful romantic energy easily takes on the meaning that the couple has for doing it. Please don't take it lightly. This is ole' world tradition - there is no divorse from a handfasting - this IS a life committment. Expecially if you have a blessed cord.
