Casting a Circle of Power

A circle is cast to offer you protection from not only the outer and spiritual world, but from yourself as well. For oftentimes when casting, you will unwittingly conjure that which you can't put down. If you don't take heed - then we offer spiritual counseling to get rid of what you can't.

There are several ways to cast a circle of power. Fast and  involved, through and short. I will include a few for all those emergencies and special occasions.

To quickly cast, carry a bag of black or blessed salt in your purse or car (available under products) and spin around three times casting the salt and saying: I spin the circle thrice about, to bring good in and cast evil out!

For lower magick: Draw a 9 foot circle with colored chalk sticks, set up your elements in the four directions (see the ways of the wise page) Dance around the circle three times Deosil (that is to go in a clockwise direction) three times singing a song like the Cone of Power song by Selena Fox ***below. Now go to each element/quarter and bless/light each element and call each quarter +++ below. Blend the water and salt together and bless the circle. Add the incense and work your magick. Close the circle by going counter clockwise and  thanking the guardians.

As with all Magickal  Workings, each person freely choses whom they desire to worship. Herein therefore is only a general form in that it uses Lord and Lady,  one could also generally use God and Goddess or name those you choose to venerate. Many as well call on the Angels instead of the quarters or guardians. We offer no guidance as to who you should personally choose.

 ***Cone of Power by Selena Fox

We circle 'round the fire, to raise a cone of power; to bring what we desire, so mote it be!

Weave the magick, by the moonlight; dance the circle all night long. Weave the magick, by the starlight, dance and sing the witches (faeries) song!

+++ Calling the Quarters

I call upon the Guardians of the East and Air (light the incense) I welcome you and ask you to bless and join my circle and lend thier power to my workings.

I call upon the Guardians of the South and Fire (light the candle) I welcome you and ask you to bless and join my circle, lending your power to my workings.

I call upon the Guardians of the West and Water (bless the water xxx) I welcome you and ask you to bless and join my circle, lending your power to my workings.

I call upon the Guardians of the North and Earth (bless the salt xxx) I welcome you and ask you to bless and join my circle, lending your power to my workings.

Proceed to center - mix water and salt - bless the circle

I call upon the Lord and Lady, I welcome you and ask you to bless and join my circle, lending your power to my workings.

xxx - I bless thee creature (water, salt) by the Lord and the Lady to cast out all evil and bring all power of good within thee.

To close a Circle:

Proceed widdershins (that is to go counter clockwise) three times singing a song like the Directions chant by Gil Morris (Orion Stormcrow): Its from the water that I come, Its to the earth I go, I am the fire of transformation, and the winds of change that blow!

Now proceed to each quarter:

I bless thee Guardians of the North and Earth and thank you for your attendance and the lending of your power to my workings. Go in Peace! but ever watch over me, Selah!

I bless thee Guardians of the West and Water and thank you for your attendance and the lending of your power to my workings . Go in Peace! but ever watch over me,Selah!
