Circle Casting confusion
By:
Post # 1
I have been reading several books on Wicca and Witchcraft. Some say when you create your circle you have to put salt down to represent the earth and others that you just put the elemental ingredients in a chalice. Is there a "correct" way or does it not matter? I would like to do a small spell to give myself to the God and Goddess but want to make sure that I am protected from negative energies/entities.

What works the best for one person may not suit another. The circle is the main component of casting a protective space, no ingredients are needed, a deity or god/universal source may be called upon for protection (Or god and goddess depending on tradition).

My advice is try every different method and see which one you prefer and which one you find most effective, we all yield unique results.

I use the Lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram myself.

Blessed Be.

The circle is made of energy. You can use anything to represent the circle, or nothing at all. Some use rope, other's use twigs, some use candles, crystals, it does not matter. Use whatever fits your personality.

May I suggest the self-dedication ritual found in Scott Cunningham's Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner for an outline?

Thanks both of you. That makes lots of sense.

And thanks for the spell recommendation.

Thats what I love about the Craft.

It really can be/is such an individual practice. Do what feels right.

Im really good with energy work, and visualization. So when/if I cast a circle its just energy that Ive created. I can literally see it, but I dont feel the need to put down anything material like salt, dirt, etc.

But do what feels right to you.
