Casting a Simple Circle

Casting a circle is a way to keep yourself protected during magic. The idea is to create a sacred space for you and your energy that is safe from unwanted entities that might be drawn to your power. This is a simple circle that I use before casting all my spells.

Tools

  • 4 white candles

Instructions

  1. Place a candle at each of the cardinal directions.
  2. Light the North candle and say, “Guardians of the North, element of earth, I call upon thee to be present during this ritual. Please join me now and bless this circle.”
  3. Light the candle to the East and say, “Guardians of the East, element of air, I call upon thee to be present during this ritual. Please join me now and bless this circle.”
  4. Light the South candle and say, “Guardians of the South, element of fire, I call upon thee to be present during this ritual. Please join me now and bless this circle.”
  5. Light the candle in the West and say, “Guardians of the West, element of water, I call upon thee to be present during this ritual. Please join me now and bless this circle.”
  6. Face North again. Point your anthame or finger to the edge of the circle and spin around clockwise three times, visualizing a white light entering through your crown. Direct it to the edge of the circle with your anthame/finger.
  7. Standing in the middle of your circle say, “Gods and Goddesses, guardian angels and spirit guides, please be present with me during this ritual. Bless this circle and keep me protected. No unwelcome entities are welcome here. Only pure, divine beings are invited into this space. The circle is cast. So mote it be.”
  8. After your spell is cast, spin around counter-clockwise three times and feel the protective light dispersing. Thank the spirits and declare the circle closed.
