Casting a Circle and Calling the Quarters as ONE:

All witchs from gardenian to solitary have thier own versions and so to add ours to the lot - here is ours:

To place an invoking cross, pentagram or hexagram, one starts at the point from the element they are using and proceeds in a clockwise motion (envision in your head thie and draw it out on paper first).

To Place an banishing cross, petagram or hexagram, one starts at the point form the element they are using and proceeds in a counterclockwise motion (again envison and draw)

Banishing is used when begining the circle or beginning magick and invoking during magick.

"The circle is cast thrice about, to keep good in and evil out"

In chalk make your nine foot pentagram - only with four point relating to the four elements and quarters and the fifth for the spirit and placed between the east (air) and south (fire) because this is the dwelling place of the Almighty one, blessed be he (man is placed between water and earth for it is what he is made of)

Your altar/workings will proceed in the center and should be pointed toward  the Almighty God/Goddess. Ready your altar/circle by placing water in the west, incense in the east, salt in the north, a candle in the south and your crystals in the top point of the pentagram between south and east.

Begin at the point of the Spirit and Invoke the Qabbalistic Cross with athame, dagger, staff or open hand (imagine a bright white light coming into you from above):

Touch your forehead and vibrate ATEH (Thou Art)

Touch your breast (solar plexus) and vibrate MalKuth (the Kingdom)

Touch your right shoulder and vibrate Ve-Gevurah (and the Power)

Touch your left shoulder and vibrate Ve-Gedulah (and the Glory)

Clasp your hands together in pray formation or across your breast and vibrate Le-Olahm (Forever)

And then to your lips and vibrate Amen (I believe)

Now proceed to the East - draw in the Air the Air banishing pentagram, vibrate YHVH and say I call on the Angel of the East, Raphael to Join me(us) and lend his power to my (our) workings. and light the incense.

Proceed to the South - draw in the Air the Fire banishing pentagram and vibrate ADNI and say I call on the Angel of the South, Michael to join me and lend his power to my workings and light the candle.

Proceed to the West - draw in the air the Water banishing pentagram and vibrate AHIH and say I call on the Angel of the West, Gabriel to join me and lend her power to my workings and through your name I bless this water.

Proceed to the North - draw in the air the Earth banishing pentagram and vibrate AGLA (Atah Giber Le-Olahm Adonai) and say I call on the Angel of the North, Uriel to join me and lend her power to my workings and through your name I bless this salt.

Now  go to the place of the Spirit once again, invoke the banishing pentagram of the spirit and say I ask that the God and Goddess please join me now and lend thier power to my workings, that all blessings and rituals, powers and magick be done in thier Most Holy Names. Mix the salt with the water  - I now ask the Most Holy Ones to bless this mixture of salt and water, me and my workings - amen - and proceed to bless the quarters;

Begin in the east, hold thy arms in the form of a cross and with thy right hand (etc) throw some holy water and then form the invoking hexagram of the air and say: Before me (vibrate) Raphael

Then proceede to the west and repeat, putting your hands in the form of a X across your chest, then throwing holy water about, then form the invoking hexagram of water and say Behind me (vibrate) Gabriel

Proceed to the south, beginning with your hands in the form of a cross, then throwing holy water and then making the invoking hexagram of fire and say On my right hand (vibrate) Michael

Proceed to the north, same as before, and say On my left hand (vibrate) Uriel

Now end in the point of the Spirit once again by crossing your arms, throwing the holy water, drawing the invoking hexagram of the spirit and saying: For about me flames the Pentagrams, and in the columns shines the Six Rayed Star: and stamp your right foot!

Now is the time to work your magick, make your tablets, amulets, talisman, etc. When finished close the circle counter clockwise and close up the cross, pentagrams and hexagrams counter clockwise and say thankyou to the Angels and Almighty One (God/Goddess) for lending thier power and might and attending.

Now most important - let go and let God/Goddess handle it!


Wiccea Rede by Lady Gwen Thompson

 Abide the Law we must, in perfect love and perfect trust. Live and Let Live - Fairly Take and Fairly Give

Cast the Circle Thrice about to keep all evil spirits out! To Bind the Spell everytime, Let the Spell must be spake in Rhyme

Soft of Eye and Light of Touch, Speak little, Listen much. Deosil go by the waxing Moon, sing and dance the wiccean rune

Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, and the Werewolfs howl by the dread wolfsbane. When the Lady's moon is New, Kiss the hand of her times two.

When the Moon rides at her peak, then your heart's desire seek. Heed the North Winds mighty gale, lock the door and drop the sail.

When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.

When the West blows O'or thee, departed souls restless be. Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them quick and burn them slow.

Elder be ye Lady's tree, burn it not or cursed ye be. When the Wheel begins to turn, let the Beltane Fires burn.

When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and let Pan rule. Heed ye flowers, bush and tree, by the Lady, blessed be!

Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone and truth ye'll know. When ye have need, harken not to other's greed.

With the fool no season spend, or be counted as his friend. Merry Meet and Merry Part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart.

Mind the Threefold Law ye should, three times bad and three times good! When misfortune is anow, wear the blue star on thy brow!

True in Love ever be, unless your lovers false to thee (or mean, or addicted or psychotic - lol) Eight words the wiccean rede fulfill, an it harm none, do as ye will.


Words of Great Wisdom for All Wise Woman to Contemplate and Remember:

Gospel of Thomas: 77 , 82

Jesus said: I am the Light, That is above the all. I am the All. The All came from me, And the All has returned to me. Split wood and I am there. Raise a stone and you will find me. He who is close to me Is close to Fire; He who is far from me is far from the Kingdom.

Gospel of Thomas: 39

The Scribes and Pharisees Recieved the Keys of Understanding, and hid them. They did not enter, nor allowed entrance to those who so wished. Be wise as serpants, and innocent as doves. -Jesus

Gospel of Thomas: 44

He who blasphemes against the Father, shall be forgiven. He who blasphemes againt the Son, shall be forgiven. But he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit (the female essence of God/the Holy Mother/the Goddess) shall not be forgiven on Earth or in Heaven. -Jesus

************************************************************************p Oh what oh what do I do with that entity of mine?

We have all had occasions that sent chills up and down our spine. It could be you just moved into a new residence or you are left alone on the job at night or just when you visit your sister - what can you do? Well if it's your house we first suggest:


First Prepare yourself and write this spell on your person in red or black ink so you can not be attacked by it no matter where it hails from (physical, mental, spiritual or emotional).









Next light a candle - white or purple if possible otherwise any 5 day candle will do and first Note which way the smoke is going:

North: It is a physical manifestation

South: It is a Spiritual manifestation

East: It is a manifestation that exists on a mental plane

West: It is a manifestation the exists on an emotional plane


Next Check which way the flame is pointing...

North: You will need to Work to get rid of it

South: The Entity can be easily overcome

East: You will only overcome this entity with thought and precision

West: You need more clarity to see where it's coming from - meditate


Then see how long your 5 day candle lasts...

Less than five days - the entity comes from an evil source

Five days - the entity comes from a friendly source


Now that you have all the information you can decide what to do with your entity. If your entity is benevolent and you decide to keep it you may ask it a question before going to sleep and get your answers before the morning light.


If your entity is evil than you should begin by cleaning everything with a wash of holy water (made with holy salt) black pepper and cumin. Begin at the back of the house and out the front door down the steps and out the garden - pay particular attention to underneath things, corners, closets, familiars and electronics. Burn sage and carry it through your house in a small cauldron swinging back and forth telling it that you claim this house as your own and it needs to leave - do so with much authority! and walk from back to front out the door as before. Now stomp you foot and say "there!" and sprinkle holy salt on your way back.


Now is a good time to construct a witch's bottle and put one in your closet and one buried by the garden gate. Our favorite one is constructed with a large green Mason jar, rosemary, needles, pins, wine, red and/or black candles. Sing the spell as your construct it then seal with the wax and bury one in your yard and one in your closet.

Witches bottle spell:

Pins and needles, rosemary and wine, in this witches bottle of mine

Needles and pins, wine and rosemary, guard against harm and do not tarry

Wine and rosemary, needles and pins, guard against evil and their jinn's

Rosemary and wine, pins and needles, guard against jealousy and all other evils

Witches bottle red and black, send all evil against me back

Witches bottle black and red, destroy all evil, kill it dead

Witches bottle that I see, destroy all evil – Mote it be!


Finally relax in a nice Aura Cleanse bath (nutmeg, pineapple, orange and poppy) and light a new candle and verify that the entity is gone!
