Hello, and welcome to the Forum.
"Drawing Down The Moon" is an important Wiccan ritual wherein the High Priestess, with the aid of her High Priest, invokes --that is, draws into herself-- the Energy[ies] that are the Goddess/Triple Goddess/Earth Mother, what have you. Once invoked, the High Priestess may then act as Oracle or Healer, or the like; or, the ritual may be used as a preparatory step toward conducting the Great Rite.
"Drawing Down The Moon," is also the title of a book by a woman named Margot Adler, which is actually a good 101-level book about the history of the neo-pagan movement in North America.
