CASTING A CIRCLE
- Remove all animals & small children from
the area & any furniture that you do
not want to be inside your circle.

holding the wand out from your body, go into
alpha & see the wand's aura extending
out from it, especially at the tip.

circle of light & energy, like a laser,
as you walk clockwise three times around
the area. The circumference drawn by the
wand's tip will be the edge of your circle.
Project white light out from the wand to
create the circle as geometrically perfect
& say to yourself that it is.
- Walk the circle the second time around &
say out loud:
"I cast this circle to protect me/us
from all negative & positive energies
& forces on any level that may come to
do me harm. I draw into this circle only
the energies & forces that are right
for me & the most correct for my work."
- Walk the circle the third time & say:
"I create sacred space. So mote it be."

of the elements, angels & powers that
reside in them by using the athame, wand,
sword or index finger to draw an invoking
pentagram as you face each direction. Use
a ritual spell of invocation or one you write

circumference of the circle & beginning
at magnetic North, walk once around the circle
