Chalice Well is a holy well situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in the county of Somerset, England (Diocese of Bath and Wells). Archaeological evidence suggests that the well has been in almost constant use for at least two thousand years.
Christian mythology suggests that Chalice Well marks the site where Joseph of Arimathea placed the chalice that had caught the drops of Christ’s blood at the Crucifixion. In addition to the legends associated with Glastonbury, the Well is often portrayed as a symbol of the female aspect of deity, with the male symbolised by Glastonbury Tor. As such, it is a popular destination for pilgrims in search of the divine feminine, including modern pagans.
Wells often feature in Welsh and Irish mythology as gateways to the spirit world. The overlapping of the inner and outer worlds is represented by the well cover, two interlocking circles, which constitute the symbol known as the vesica piscis. The vesica piscis has been the subject of mystical speculation at several periods of history, and is viewed as important in Freemasonry, Kabbalah, and New Age.
Habakkuk 3:8 Young’s Literal Translation
Against rivers hath Jehovah been wroth? Against rivers [is] Thine anger? Against the sea [is] Thy wrath? For Thou dost ride on Thy horses — Thy chariots of salvation?
You close doors no man or spirit can open and open doors no one can shut.
We ask that You would close the spiritual portals to evil spirits over Glastonbury’s Chalice Well. We pray that You will reveal Your Son, the Victorious, True Lord Christ Jesus, before Whose Holy and powerful Name, Cross and Blood all other spirits must bow.
We hope and pray for the establishment of Your Holy Son, Your Name and Your reign over Glastonbury’s Chalice Well. Stir the nether waters and let there be healing of this land and this well. Amen.
